    doesnt matter anyway

    honestly, can any of you tell me how proper judging was done in one single weekend with that many strains ?

    i was just at my local grow shop and the owners/workers there were laughing about that

    realy you need to test one strain each morning to do an honest judgment

    I agree there are too many strains to accurately judge on such a short timeline. Perhaps they could roll out the samples 1 week before the show and finalize the results during the end of the show? Is the judging real or is it already decided prior to the whole thing?

    I have tabulated the results for the fist two Expos and can confirm that the ballots were original and collected at the end of the show.
    If you want to ask me how accurate it is, please don't hesitate. I'm always shocked to hear people claim it's all made up, especially when I've spent hours in the office at the expo counting the results

    Thanks,
    S.

    Epic, I think scrumptious was replying to this line (not from you)
    Is the judging real or is it already decided prior to the whole thing?
    .

    And I doubt you will have anyone argue the length needed to try that many properly. But seeing as the expo is for the weekend, and a lot of entries/judges flew in (A local dispensery in BC is claiming they have one of the first place strains from the breeder for sale) it may be easier to have it happen in a few days time as opposed to over a week or two.

    T.Y has always been known as a trustworthy place so I cannot see the judging being staged. I do think 2 days to test a lot of strains is too short a time to get a good evaluation but that's how the cannabis cup works so maybe that is why Marco chose this method.

    For all those interested check out remos "the urban grower.s" channel on YouTube all winners are on his channel along with some excellent expo shots so if like me you could not attend remo has done a great job covering this years expo.

    Due to the fact the Judges are from all over the globe it is extremely difficult to get the samples in their hands plus the fact that every year there is a last minute entry. Most entries were dropped off at my Toronto office 2 weeks prior to the expo then all entries had to be weighed and placed in different baggies. It takes weeks to get all entries put together for the judging. The seed company entries were all judged in 1 day as was the case every year that we have done this.

    Sure in a PERFECT WORLD we would be able to have at least a month to judge the strains but that just ISN'T possible.

    If anyone feels that they can do a better job then BE MY GUEST!

    Take Care and Peace

    Epic - I was simply stating a fact - the voting cards were counted, therefore it was not decided before hand. I wasn't missing the point.

    Off to work now.

    Thank you - I was. I'm not mising the point and I won't be testing 10 strains because I don't use cannabis.
    I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall here so I'll give up.
    It's a shame that an event such as a cannabis cup is surrounded by a few people who know better and moan that there were Too MANY strains. Everyone else was thrilled and loved this event.
    It will be there at next years Expo so you can complain about it again next year I guess.
    Just for the record - nothing is ever decided beforehand, every vote is counted and I'm surprised you'd think Marco would not run an honest event.
    Goodnight,
    S.
    P.S. Please leave me alone now - I have bigger things to worry about than there being too many samples to try.

    its a shame you arent intelligent enough to see the point

    once intoxicated thats it , anything after CAN NOT BE PROPERLY JUDGED !

    thats just it , NO ONE said it was staged , but ANYONE with common sence would realise you can NOT smoke 10 different strains on any given day and get a proper evaluation on the 9 that follow the first one

    Judging is based on the following

    Appearance
    Smell
    Taste
    Smokeability

    You can make an honest judgement on all samples even after smoking many prior.
    If you CAN'T judge any of the above then maybe you SHOULDN'T be a judge.

    Now when I get some time to spare I will type out the winners for all to see.

    Take Care and Peace

    This the second year i have had the privledge to recieve the VIP judging package
    Marco has described the method of testing, that i feel ,is correct. If you have a grinder (who doesn't. green house seeds gave them out for free). the first two, appearance and smell ,are easily judged in a very short time.
    taste and smokeability. Last year, testing the whole sample proved to be, joyfull, but quite limiting for me, so smaller test samples were done.
    This year , with the solo vaperizer, I bought from vaporizer.ca, testing became easy. .1 test samples size was used. In the time frame I had ,I tested to the max, to weed out the best, taste and smokeability, samples.
    The best is for each person, is just that. As for the best relief,that is being done, as we speak. Different strains, different relief.(the best test)
    I think the point that we are missing is, stop and ENJOY.this does not happen every day,( for me).
    Don't be over serious, enjoy , enjoy , enjoy.
    Great show by the way Marco !!!
