CANNABIS CULTURE – Marijuana culture is growing in the Canadian Prairies, and now the home of much of our country’s hemp-growing industry will play host to the 1st Annual Prairie Medicinal Cannabis Cup from July 8 – 10 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Jeff Lundstrom, owner of Skunk Funk Smoker’s Emporium in Saskatoon and organizer of the Prairie Medicinal Cannabis Cup, says the event was designed to showcase the thriving cannabis culture that exists on the prairies and offer a unique perspective as a centre of hemp cultivation.
“There’s a strong movement there and people aren’t aware of it because the bigger cities soak up a lot of the attention,” Lundstrom told CC in an interview filmed during the Treating Yourself Hemp Expo in Toronto. “Saskatchewan stands on the edge of what built this country – potash, uranium, agriculture – we are the frontline in the hemp industry.

The event will feature a cannabis competition where judges will sample ten different strains, six of them local Saskatchewan strains. The three-day event will feature guest speakers, live music, catered food, a vapour lounge and designated area for combustibles, free giveaways, a Sunday Award ceremony, and more.
Tickets can be purchased at Head 2 Head in Regina, Skunk Funk and Undergrind in Saskatoon, and Watch Tower in Moose Jaw.
Organizers don’t plan on releasing the location of the event until the day of the event and ticket-holders can call a hotline (on the back of the ticket) to acquire the information and directions.
