AllBud’s Seattle Cannabis Cup® Recap

AllBud logo
The Seattle Cannabis Cup® was a perfect first Cup for AllBud to attend. For those who weren’t able to attend, here’s a quick recap of the event. Most of the daytime activity occurred outside the Comcast Arena in Everett with booths set up from mostly local vendors, but also a handful of vendors like us who ventured from out of state. There were plenty of local growers and producers proudly displaying their products and plenty of attendees happy to check out what they had to offer.

Across the street was a full on party in the official “smoking section” with an emcee keeping the crowd alive, although most of the crowd was already pretty happy. Inside, a handful of booths and stage were set up and educational seminars were presented on the second floor.

The AllBud Team, Kristin and Alli, were able to speak to hundreds of the friendly attendees. Almost all demographics were represented and interested in learning more about marijuana strains, products, and how either the recreational or medical programs worked in their areas. Of course the AllBud Team was happy to explain what the site had to offer and show off the site on the iPads we had on display. The day flew by for us as we learned about the attendees who enjoyed all our goodies: stickers, grinder cards, and concentrate holders. We also met up with a few of the new Washington Recreational Store representatives and were lucky enough to try some of the strain entries in the cup courtesy of Buds & Roses Collective.

It was a great event for us despite some internal obstacles; mainly Allison picking up the wrong bag at the airport and someone else picking up hers. We look forward to attending future Cups and maybe one day seeing one here in Arizona.
