More than two dozen panelists will be leading seminars and discussions about the state of medical cannabis, from growing practices to state and federal policies to increasing legalization, advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming. The Emerald Cup is named for the area of Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties known as the Emerald Triangle, widely regarded for producing the world’s finest cannabis.

On Saturday, the many workshops will include presentations by visionary Ralph Metzner, author Todd McCormik, award-winning breeder DJ Short, and legal expert Tony Serra.

On Sunday December 15, there will be talks by grow guru Ed Rosenthal, hemp expert Chris Conrad, founders of Harborside Health Center and stars of "Weed Wars" Steven and Andrew De Angelo, and much more. There will also be a presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Awards to Denis Peron and Debby Goldsberry. And the main event... the highly coveted 2013 Emerald Cup awards to the winning cannabis entries. This year will see over 200 entries, more than ever before. There will also be a photo contest, voted on by the audience’s participation.

Earlybird tickets are $40/day and $70/weekend; tickets at the door are $50/day and $90/weekend.
