2022 Emerald Cup: Glass House Farms Results

May 17th, 2022

We recently had the honor of being a finalist in the 2022 Emerald Cup and we’re excited to share some of the results!

What is the Emerald Cup?

Think of the Emerald Cup as a celebration of the legacy of cannabis cultivation in California. It’s an annual event and contest that highlights the backbone of our industry – the grower. The Emerald Cup event takes place in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle – which is known worldwide for its incredible cannabis harvests, while the awards were in LA this year.

The Emerald Cup Awards have been taking place for the past 18 years and cover the full spectrum of the cannabis marketplace with 50 categories to determine who has the best cannabis in California. Some of the biggest categories include sungrown greenhouse flower, outdoor flower, solventless concentrate, and much much more. You can find the full list of 2022 categories here!

The judging is blind across several flower sub-categories, so you know that only the best cannabis ends up in the winning slots. Many aspects are taken into consideration when judging each category. While CBD and THC content matter, it’s important to have a combination of terpene and cannabinoid content, along with flavor and aroma.

Along with a stacked roster of highly respected and highly credible judges, the Emerald Cup has also partnered with PhytoFacts and SC Labs to integrate science in determining which strains and products are worthy of recognition.

Our Participation in the 2022 Emerald Cup

It was an honor to be invited to the 2022 Emerald Cup Awards and we’re incredibly grateful to be included among some of the best growers in the business!

So how did Glass House Farms do? Three of our strains placed at the top of two categories.

Under the Sungrown Greenhouse Flower category, our Glass House Farms Waiting Game strain placed second.

We also placed second and third under the Alternative Cannabinoid Flower for our Jelly Fish and Tangelo Flow strains.

Final Thoughts

Once again, we couldn’t have been more thrilled to be a part of the 2022 Emerald Cup! It’s exciting to see our products gain recognition on such a large scale, alongside some the best cannabis producers in the world. We’ll continue to work on improving our cannabis over the course of the next year to see what our results are like in 2023. We thank the Emerald Cup team for everything they do for the cannabis industry as a whole and considering us this year for awards.
