California State Fair Announces Cannabis Contest Winners

Last September, the California State Fair announced it was adding a Cannabis Competition to its contest repertoire. Last week, ahead of the Fair’s July 10 opening, the organization announced the winners of the first-ever 2022 California State Fair Cannabis Award.

There were more than 300 submissions, each of which was tested by SC Labs.

“Medals were awarded based on overall terpene or cannabinoid expression in each of the ten categories. Terpenes winners were further evaluated by category by considering the ratio of each terpene against the overall terpene concentration in each submission. This ensured that each flower was properly classified and true to its unique makeup,” according to the Fair’s website.

There were more than 60 winners in all. MOCA Humboldt, Esensia, and Greenshock Farms took home the most prizes.
