About The Classic

Rooster Magazine’s THC Classic is the only blind-judging cannabis competition in Colorado, which means, to avoid bias, all submissions are repackaged without any labels or branding before being given to the judges.

Each year, licensed dispensaries, wholesalers and manufacturers all compete to see who has the best flowers, concentrates, edibles, vape pens and infusions in the Colorado marketplace across 20 categories.

Each category has a panel of five judges, who meticulously review each strain, assigning an overall score based on a set of criteria (appearance, effect, potency, flavor, etc.). 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were the highest scoring from their respective category; Grand Champions were awarded to the highest scoring of the four main categories (flower, concentrate, vape pen, and edible/infusions).

This year we had over 300 submissions; here are the winners from our 9th annual THC Classic.
