STEP 6: BUDFEST JUDGING PROCESS


 

Budfest worked hard to creating a wide and knowledgeable judging panel of individuals diversely heralded within the cannabis industry. Look forward to our final judge announcements coming soon. Judges bios will be published incrementally on BudFest sites. Judges will have 3 weeks to evaluate the entries.

Budfest runs a blind competition. Each entry (excluding topicals/edibles) will be blind labeled with an internal code before given to our judges. None of the judges are allowed to enter any products.

Judging Criteria

  • AROMA: 1-10 points

  • APPEARANCE: 1-10 points

  • FLAVOR/TASTE: 1-10 points

Judges will also give further quantitative feedback on each entry. While these categories will not have an associated score, it will help the judges evaluate the entry. Each producer will receive judging report on every entry after the Budfest completion.
