The Secret Cup is a nationwide tournament made by hash makers, for hash makers. The contest consists of regional competitions that happen in an undisclosed location and is not open to the general public.
What sets The Secret Cup apart is that it is judged by the competitors. Hash makers submit their concentrate (Shatter, Budder, solventless, etc.) and vote without ever knowing who made what.
The idea behind the event got its start in San Jose when a group of extract artists wanted to create a competition with low entry fees, blind testing and peer judging.
The 2014 SoCal Secret Cup VIP party will be held March 21. The awards show (open to the public) will be held March 22 in the San Fernando Valley.
