High Times magazine has unveiled the winners of the 2022 Cannabis Cup Michigan: People's Choice Edition.

Since 2011, High Times magazine has run a Cannabis Cup event in Michigan, a competition that doled out awards to local cannabis companies and growers and also included high-profile musical entertainment. But the event was only for medical marijuana patients until 2019, when adult-use cannabis events became legal. It was then canceled for the last two years due to the pandemic, causing High Times to switch to a “People’s Choice” model without the music festival component.

More than 3,000 judging kits were sold at select dispensaries throughout Michigan on a first-come, first-served basis to anyone who wanted to act as a judge for the competition. Each kit included 15 to 35 samples of flower, gummies, pre-rolls, vape cartridges, and more. Judges then go online to submit their vote for each category.

According to High Times, this year's competition was the largest Cannabis Cup Michigan to date.
