The Winners of the High Times Hemp Cup: People’s Choice Edition 2023

The Winners of the High Times Hemp Cup: People’s Choice Edition 2023

Looking for the hottest hemp-derived products on the market? You’re in luck: The results of our High Times Hemp Cup: People’s Choice Edition 2023 are here!

Extending a huge congratulations to the winners of our High Times Hemp Cup: People’s Choice Edition 2023 competition.

We’ve celebrated a variety of different High Times People’s Choice Cups over the years, and while many of our other People’s Choice competitions focus on products from a single market or region, the Hemp Cup covers competitors all around the country.

A lot changed for the hemp industry after the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, which removed hemp, including low-THC derivatives of cannabis (no more than 0.3% THC by dry weight), from the Controlled Substances Act. Since then, the demand for hemp-derived products is more prominent than ever before. With continuous innovation in the space, we’re also seeing the development of cannabinoids and products yet to be explored. 

Put simply, we’re witnessing an unparalleled time for this still-growing industry, and it’s time to celebrate the many incredible players in the hemp industry..

The first High Times People’s Choice Hemp Cup was announced in December 2020, with winners announced in May 2021. This year, we also upgraded the categories of the High Times Hemp Cup, welcoming three legal psychoactive groups to fully capture the broad scope of today’s hemp industry.

Competitors were able to submit their products for consideration from Jan. 30, 2023-Feb. 3, 2023. This is People’s Choice, of course, and Hemp Cup judge kits became available to order online in every state starting Feb. 10. Judges had two months to explore and review their received products.
