Judges will evaluate each entry based on the specific category criteria. In general, however, products will be judged according to five criteria: aesthetics and packaging, aroma, taste, effectiveness and ease of use.

There will be many entries in each category, and each is a candidate to win an award. The winners, however, will be the entries with the top three highest scores in each judging category. First place winners will be awarded the illustrious Cannabis Cup Trophy, designed by Alyson and Alex Grey. Second and third place winners will receive silver and bronze medals.
