Judge Application: Cultivation Classic 2019
Cultivation Classic’s judge roster is by application or invitation only.

Selected Judges will be notified January 2019, and will mindfully evaluate up to 14 samples over four weeks in March 2019. Judges come from all corners of the cannabis industry, but also include Oregon’s pros from the beer, wine, coffee, culinary, health, design, and technology communities. The number of competition entries, willing judges, etc. define the ultimate roster and breakdown of kit assignments and we will do our very best to put an enjoyable judging experience in front of you. Thanks for your willingness to go on this adventure with us!

If selected, you will be invited to a MANDATORY judge training session on Sunday, March 3 at 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. at The Commune in downtown Portland. Please mark your calendar now.

We are very excited to announce that we have elevated our competition process by including agricultural product grading by a small panel of trained experts. These experts will objectively evaluate the appearance and physical quality of each competing flower. This way, YOU, as a judge, can focus on what is most important, as a consumer: how did the products in your kit make you feel?

Judges must be age 21 or over, and have some recent experience (in the last 6 months) using whole plant cannabis. Some level of THC tolerance is preferred (we would like to prevent anyone from over-consuming or having a negative experience). Unless medically necessary, we ask that judges take a minimum 48 hour tolerance break prior to consuming the first product from their judge kit. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should not apply. Mindful consumption is a KEY factor in this year’s competition; we will be providing specific training on how to consume mindfully, which may include 2-3 minute cognitive and/or breathing exercises before each consumption session.

If you are unwilling or unable to consume mindfully, we would welcome nominations for individuals who are down for this mission!

NOTE: A competing producer MAY apply to judge. If selected, they will only receive a kit in which their entries are not competing. We know that the cultivators themselves are some of our most qualified, experienced palates in Oregon and we value having a wide range of judges participating in this cup.

Please read the Cultivation Classic Code of Conduct, as all judges will be expected to adhere: cultivationclassic.cc/codeofconduct.

Research Consent
Part of the larger mission behind the Cultivation Classic is to improve human health and wellness, and empower consumers to make informed choices about the kinds of cannabis they consume. In support of these goals, your ANONYMOUS data may be used for peer-reviewed scientific research (yay, science!!!). The aim of this study is to characterize the effects of recreational cannabis on the human psyche and behavior. Upon approval by the Washington State University Institutional Review Board, you will have the opportunity to sign a waiver and provide your consent to willingly participate in this study, which is being conducted by Drs. Adrianne Rae at Washington State University.
I am willingly volunteering to participate as an evaluator of Cultivation Classic entries, and provide my feedback about the flowers in my judge kit, without any pressure or influence from the researchers and organizers of this event: *
