Here it is, Thanksgiving Day! But the Cannabis Cup is its own special feast day. After five days of sampling the best cannabis products in the world, judges from around the world have selected the premier strains of cannabis and the most outstanding hashish featured at the 25th annual HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup. Tonight, they celebrated Thanksgiving Day at the Melkweg in Amsterdam with the presentation of the Cannabis Cup Awards.

In addition to the awards for cannabis, the top product of the Cannabis Cup Expo was also honored, as well as the top glass pipe that stood out from a field of stunning smokeware. As always, awards night makes a special point of honoring standouts of the cannabis community. Last year, HIGH TIMES instituted the Dutch Master Awards in order to recognize pioneers of the cannabis industry of the Netherlands. Wernard Bruining and Nol van Schalk were this year's recipients. Mason Tvert was crowned as the new HIGH TIMES Freedom Fighter of the Year, an outstanding choice in light of his tireless work to legalize marijuana in Colorado. And Steve Hager was inducted into the HIGH TIMES Counterculture Hall of Fame. Steve is the founder of the Cup. His vision, to promote not only the plant but a sense of cannabis spirituality, has made this event an international sensation for a quarter-century. Congratulations to all of our Cannabis Cup superstars!
