Green Bee Botanicals is an Emerald Cup winner!

by | Apr 5, 2022 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The Emerald Cup is a legendary cannabis competition, one of the best in the world. And over 16 years, the event has kept on growing. Over the crisp December weekend, 700+ contest entries, 300 cannabis brands, 160+ speakers, 100+ educational sessions & podcasts, and 20+ music acts came together to celebrate the industry. New products like awarding the most eco conscious packaging or CBD beverages show that the industry consistently reinvents itself.

The 2019 Willie Nelson Award winner was Tommy Chong of Cheech & Chong fame. This lifetime achievement award celebrates his work in the cannabis movement through advocacy of it’s benefits and accessibility.

The weekend highlights included musical performances from Santigold, Flatbush Zombies, Steel Pulse, and Emancipator. Emerald Cup Sessions featured NBA Star and cannabis advocate Matt Barnes, Peter Tosh Estate executor and daughter Niambe McIntosh, The Notorious B.I.G.’s son and cannabis entrepreneur Christopher Wallace, Dr. Bronner CEO David Bronner, Wine Enthusiast magazine’s Virginie Boone, California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Ryan Mathis, and event the Santa Rosa Mayor Tom Schwedhelm.

Emeral Cup just keeps getting bigger and better.
