Maybe the high altitudes aren’t as good for precise temperature extraction. Maybe Coloradans don’t sell themselves as well as flamboyant Californians. Or maybe they just haven’t had as much practice. For whatever reason, Colorado mountain men and women took home some awards last weekend for their green (though the Cup had a separate category for Colorado flowers, which doesn’t demonstrate a lot of confidence in their quality), but nearly all concentrate awards went to known SoCal artists such as Nature’s Lab, Dabblicious, Gold Coast, and Vader Extracts.

Safest travels to all those extractors on their way west from the cup, and congrats to all winners, regardless of geographical origins. Here’s hoping every year brings more and more stiff competition. And here’s a complete list of all the winners from the 2015 High Times U.S. Cannabis Cup Denver.
