    at this stage we have a situation where you can't judge any category you entered, neither can your crew members or employees. further more we have an outlier recognition system that lets us check for tactical voting. all the scores will be visible to all like always. can't do more then that. most cups don't even have transparent voting set up, where as we do it openly and entries are numbered randomly.

      Transparent voting( all scores posted online after Cup) makes this the most legit cup there is.
      Yes you might be able to cheat but we will see and either disqualify or it will be known all over the industry so just as bad.

      Peace

          I don't want to seem dogmatic but testing is bound to be a factor at some point,, how much do we actually care about iso 17025?,, it's a fair question

              Wish my flowers would be done in time to participate this year, but I don't think that will be the case. It'll have to be my goal for 2020. I've always wanted to, but timing never seems to work out. I need to plan better!!!

                we have looked at this before mate, but it's a bit pricy, any test worth doing will cost in the region of 100 to 200 euros per sample depending what all it's tested for. this would totally change the whole way the cup is run as it would mean charging people to enter so we can at least partially cover the testing, but then thats just the beginning, a real test that people won't just scoff and laugh at, takes times, no way can a lab test 70 to maybe 100 and more samples in a matter of 4 days. in the end this cup is about what the judges like, i doubt pesticide weed will taste nice. in principle i agree, testing far bad shit is the next step, just need to find the right resources to make it possible.

                as for tests to tell you the thc amount etc, i find those totally irrelevant, have seen low thc strains like sour power beat out high thc level strains too many times to take much account of the thc numbers alone, when we know it's about the ratios and the terps too.

                    don't get me wrong, in principle it's a great idea. we just need to find a way to make it feasible.

                    wold be great to know there are no pesticides, molds etc....on the other hand if you enter anything other then the best of the best you won't stand a chance in this cup, so i imagine folks are not entering such rubbish in the first place.

                    still, its certainly something worth keeping in mind for the future.

                              for entering best talk with sourkush directly as he's keeping the entrants list.

                              remember the rules don't allow identifying or naming your potential entry. we want the judges to sample with nothing but a number to id the sample. no names of breeders or strains allowed till after the results are published.
