For the third year, HIGH TIMES hosted a cannabis event in Denver. But 2013 was different. In the wake of Colorado’s historic passage of an initiative that made adult, recreational use of cannabis legal, HIGH TIMES invited the entire country to the first US Cannabis Cup. In truth, this was the tenth stateside Cup that HIGH TIMES has hosted. But no other event in the magazine’s history has drawn as much support from the cannabis community or as much as interest from the international media.

Well over 10,000 cannabis fans turned out for the biggest event in HIGH TIMES history, two days of seminar, over 200 booths, two days of seminars, medication areas for Colorado’s medical community, and a whole lot of free hits for the high-spirited crowd. In addition to dabs and bong hits, attendees were able to sample a stunning array of medically infused treats. Plus there were concerts featuring Slighty Stoopid, Cypress Hill, and a very special Friday night concert where Snoop Lion graciously accepted the Lester Grinspoon Lifetime Achievement Award.

As always, the cannabis is what drew the crowds and stoked the high-flying mood of the crowd. Here are the winners!
