The Emerald Cup is the "Heart of Cannabis Culture"

For those looking for the heart of cannabis culture, look no further than the Emerald Cup — a cannabis festival and competition bringing together 15,000 of the California’s best cultivators, policy experts, artists, and cannabis enthusiasts. At this year's past Emerald Cup in Santa Rosa, California, Elise McRoberts guides us through the festival and its cast of characters enjoying the show. Now, in a legal adult use atmosphere, Cup goers need not worry about red tape or reserved areas just for medical marijuana patients. Raving about how “free” it felt, guests could see first hand the sophistication and development of the cannabis industry, at once expanding in its offerings and reducing the stigma along the way.

By now you may have heard about the cannabis plant's most well-known compounds, THC and CBD, however, there's more to marijuana than just its cannabinoids. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give plants their flavor and aroma. Found in cannabis and other plants, terpenes have their own therapeutic effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and anti-depressive properties.
