OAKLAND, Calif. – For the second year in a row, Fig Farms has been awarded a top honor in the High Times Cannabis Cup Illinois. The family-owned and -operated cannabis cultivator swept the competition in the Solventless Concentrate Category with its Blue Face Live Rosin.
The Oakland, California-based brand entered the Illinois market in June 2022 with its award-winning flower, and has since expanded its product offerings with concentrates, cartridges and pre-rolls in 150+ licensed retailers throughout Illinois. Fig Farms is 100% owned by legacy growers Keith and Chloe Healy.
“Blue Face has been on an incredible run over the last two years, with two 1st Place High Times Cups, three Emerald Cup trophies including Best in Show, and an Ego Clash placement. We are grateful for all the praise that Blue Face has received,” says Keith, who is also Fig Farms’ CEO. “The High Times Cannabis Cups will always hold a special place in our hearts, and remind us of our pre-legalization roots. Our first-ever recognition was the 2017 High Times Cup, and came from a strain my wife Chloe bred in our laundry room. That win cemented our belief we were onto something unique. I’m humbled to still be held in such high regard by the cannabis community.”
Celebrating its fourth year and judged by Illinois residents, the statewide High Times competition aims to identify and award the best cannabis products. The number of categories increased from eleven in 2022 to fifteen in 2023. Fig Farms’ Figment strain was awarded 1st place in the Sativa Flower category in last year’s competition.
Blue Face has had a banner year, having taken 1st place in July’s High Times Cannabis Cup SoCal Indica Flower category, and in May was awarded Best in Show and 1st Place Indoor Flower in the 2023 Emerald Cup Awards. The strain holds the distinction of being the first Indoor Flower to receive the Emerald Cup’s Best In Show honor.
