LOS ANGELES — Since 2004, the Emerald Cup has authentically mirrored society’s eventual acceptance of cannabis culture to where we are today as the plant fuels a multibillion dollar industry. Returning in 2022 as an Emerald Cup sponsor, Puffco represents the best of cannabis consumption devices and shares in the mission of celebrating the cannabis plant and the culture. These common roots have created a mutually beneficial relationship between the Emerald Cup, Puffco, and conscious consumers seeking an ideal, and replicable, cannabis experience.

Puffco has yet again elevated the honor associated with winning an Emerald Cup Award. In collaboration with world-renowned glass artist Ryan Fitt, Puffco has provided a unique, functional, and truly unforgettable set of custom crafted Puffco Peak Emerald Cup Awards.


“Puffco’s tradition of collaborating with Ryan Fitt on these custom Peak Pro trophies for Emerald Cup is our way of acknowledging the hard work, dedication and creativity of the entrants,” says Puffco’s CEO Roger Volodarsky. “The competition showcases the very best in cannabis – from flower to extracts and more. We love attending every year, I’ve been involved in the judging at prior Emerald Cups, and to have a hand in awarding the winners with these trophies is an honor.”

The 18th Annual Emerald Cup Awards will be held at the Ricardo Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood, California on Saturday, May 14th, 2022 providing a true red carpet experience for what has been dubbed the ‘Academy Awards of Cannabis’ with a private event guest list that includes names representing the highest quality cannabis brands in California.

By that time, official Emerald Cup judges will have narrowed over 700 top-shelf entries spanning over 50 unique categories down to just 182 winners who will be presented with their awards live on stage in front of their respected peers and broadcast live worldwide by the official Emerald Cup media partner ALTRD.tv.

For those fortunate cultivators and craftspeople who place first, they will receive a special hand blown glass piece, then certain 1st and 2nd place winners across all categories will receive a custom hand blown glass attachment for their Puffco Peak Pro.

Over the years, Puffco has introduced thousands of Cup attendees to the most potent and flavorful consumption method on the market with innovative, user-friendly products that feature high quality hardware and virtually no learning curve to thoroughly enjoy. The company will have an on-site activation this year which will feature specials on Puffco products and consumer demonstrations.

With a mutual mission to preserve the flavor of the plant and of its culture, together the Emerald Cup and Puffco recognize that traditions make cannabis better and stronger, and this partnership continues to prove it.


Landing in Hollywood for 2022, Emerald Cup is now the world’s premier virtual cannabis destination and iconic live event. While advancing the concept of sustainable, sun-grown farming, the 17 year old organization’s reputation is firmly solidified as the largest, most-respected cannabis competition in the world. As a group, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together the leading experts in the cannabis industry to educate and inspire our fellow farmers, patients, and patrons each year. A community celebration that has grown to become a global movement honoring the year’s finest, organic, sun-grown, cannabis harvest as well as the finest cannabis products available. The Cup has stood as a celebration of excellence and over the years has seen founder Tim Blake recognized as a guardian of the industry.
