Comparison Results

your the best around, nothings gonna ever take you down

Our Cannabis Comparison is rooted in education and compliance. The goal of the experience is to help consumers learn assess good cannabis and what balance of factors to consider when consuming it in various forms. With the help and participation of our legal, BC Licensed Standard/Micro-producer and Personal-use ACMPR producer friends, we educate our VIU (Very Important Unicorn) guests how to assess and appreciate BC cannabis. 

Education is at the HEART of the Unicorn Cup. Our goals for both producer and consumer is to empower and inform so that producer know what they should consider in today’s market and consumers learn what to consider when balancing quality, effect and price.

Our Cannabis Comparison is an integral part of our educational efforts where we facilitate both casual and experienced Cannabis consumers to learn to systematically assess and compare the various craft brands entered in this year’s event. VIU ticket holders are educated on how to assess cannabis and then given the opportunity to add their assessments and ratings to the overall score of the entries.
