Best Sativa Flower
We are honored to announce that Item 9 Labs has taken home 1st place in Arizona’s celebrated Errl Cup for the second year in a row! The judges again awarded our Candyland strain the gold for “Best Sativa Flower,” while our Tres Leches hybrid earned an honorable silver. We are delighted that our commitment to cultivating the highest quality organic flower has earned us the recognition of our peers and this passionate community.
The Errl Cup
The Errl cup was launched by Jim Morrison (no relation to him of late-sixties fame), who was disheartened by his sister’s struggle to find consistent and reliable medical marijuana to treat her Multiple Sclerosis. After her death, the competition began as a noble effort to connect medical marijuana patients with high-quality, safe and consistent medicine. It’s since become Arizona’s premier cannabis festival and award show—and the year’s best opportunity for the cannabis community to come together, get informed and get excited.
The cup’s organizers begin the competition by secret shopping for various flowers at local dispensaries. Strains are then sent to a carefully selected laboratory; each sample is tested for cannabinoid content, pesticides, mold, growth regulators, terpenes and residual solvents. From there, the product is delivered to a panel of judges for blind testing and in-depth review. The results are then tallied up and the winners are announced, but not before a full day of cannabis education, community, and celebration.
