10 weed trends coming to your state from The Emerald Cup ’22
Hash holes, fresh zaza, epic throwback strains, plus scratch-and-sniff bags in stores for 2023.
Future Oscar winners debut at Sundance film festival. Unicorn startups are born at SXSW. And NFL superstars make their names at the draft combine. For licensed and unlicensed cannabis pros, the road to glory runs through The Emerald Cup each year. The Cup is the globe’s penultimate pro-sumer cannabis expo and smokeout.
The counties of Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity collectively produce more weed than any other place in the US. Each December, super-growers, sellers, and users come down from the Emerald Triangle to share fresh genetics and search for the next superstar strain of the year.
In 2023, you’ll be smoking the strains that premiered on December 9 and 10 in Santa Rosa, California. The event is further proof that the future still happens in Cali first: Here are 10 trends from The Emerald Cup Harvest Ball 2022 coming soon to a state near you.
Low, legal prices will rule the shop
Scratch and sniff bags—yes!
Cannabis price declines not only unlock budget rosin options, they’re allowing for a whole new world of cannabis terpene-derived experiences. Like scratch and sniff labels on weed bags and postcards. Humboldt Seed Co launched the tech six years ago, but cheap cannabis terps have allowed it to take off. More on scratch and sniff later this week.
