RECAP: HIGH TIMES Bay Area Medical Cannabis Cup In Santa Rosa
Whether you care to stay up to speed on the latest businesses hitting the market or like to simply enjoy the spectacle, the event has something for everyone who loves cannabis.
2014 Bay Area Medical Cannabis Cup Winners Announced
Businesses came from all over the nation to share their products and services with the mecca of medical marijuana – Northern California. The amount of tented booths packed into the medicating areas was impressive, which came as no surprise with over 250 registered competitors at this year’s Bay Area Medical Cannabis Cup.
Those who attended the 2014 Bay Area Medical Cannabis Cup were treated to CBD lotions and tinctures to sample, lots of free swag, and fabulous deals on anything cannabis related.
