The Grow-Off / Denver, CO / August – February
The Grow-Off tests skill on a level playing field. Up to 200 competitors use the same genetics to see who can truly grow the best. While other Cannabis competitions are subjectively judged by enthusiasts. However, each entry is evaluated based on highest potency (cannabinoid profile), best flavor (terpenoid content), and highest yield (weight).
Each competitor(state-licensed retail cultivators) is supplied with two clones from the official genetics partner DarkHorse Genetics. Competitors then check-in periodically with consumer-oriented posts to follow their progress through the vegetative, flowering, and post-harvest stages of the production process. Steep Hill Labs will promptly receive samples for quantitative laboratory analysis. A proprietary algorithm will rank entries to determine a winner. Winners will be announced at an exclusive VIP reception held for all registered entrants, sponsors, and partners once the results are in.
