I arrived to a cold winter in Buenos Aires for the growers biggest event here in the south.
We had crews coming from Brazil, Chile and Uruguay which made this event international.
Unfortunately it is not totally legal so it was not open to the general public.
We knew that this year it was going to be difficult to filter the numerous amount of people that wanted to participate in this real cannabis party with the most experienced growers of the region, and most of all, the most delicious strains.
All of this, we have to say, is perhaps in the heart of a vigorously growing cannabis movement.
We also had 4 international connections, one of them was with the great Mila (creator of Bubbleator) telling us part of her history with the hashish production. Then we had a video chat with Jorge Cervantes, this was about the great monster plants. Very interesting data was given by this real grow magician.
The cup was held in a friendly atmosphere and people had lots of fun within a big vapor lounge with all types of commercial devices for vaporizing. There were also many commercial booths representing different grow-shops including paraphernalia, expos, etc.. There were roughly 3 hashish making devices and also a hashish contest .
Then it was time for the Live video conference with the famous ganja guru and a real master of knowledge mis-ter Ed Rosenthal. Ed answered a few questions and gave a few other advices.
It was incredible to have such a cannabis heroe like Ed sharing his words in the cup. Last we also had greetings from Mikki Norris and Chris Conrad from California, old Argentines friends of the international cannabis family.
After a great lunch we got a nice location to watch ¨dancing mood ¨an awesome reggae band, which trans-formed the last part of the event in a “single dancing soul.” Then it was time for the final cup results and the greetings for the winners. This years cup was a fabulous one and will remain in our memories.
Hopefully next year we can achieve a more legal atmosphere so that we can open the doors and welcome our friends from the rest of the world.
The winner was Mr Mota with a Cindirella 99
