DOPE Cup took place April 17th behind Dockside Cannabis in SODO. Organized by Seattle’s own DOPE (an acronym for “Defending Our Plant Everywhere) Magazine, the event is in its 5th year and recently branched out, hosting its first event in Portland in 2015. It is billed as the longest running cannabis competition in the Pacific Northwest with live music, competition, vendors, food and an awards ceremony. Although there are no shortage of engaging sights, sounds and people, this one-day event is primarily focused on the competition. Categories judged fall under flower, concentrates, edibles and topicals, with subcategories tailored for each. Entries were designated and judged as either medicinal or recreational. In addition to a People’s Choice Award with online voting open to all, the judging panel consisted of celebrities and industry experts. When attendees weren't spectating the competitions, they enjoyed live music, with performances by Smoov-E, Dub Lounge and headlining act Waka Flocka. The list of winners can be seen on DOPE Cup's website below.
