Can you feel it? Yes you can! It’s Zootly’s Cannabis Cup, and this year you can enter your favourite local genetics in the: Local Genetic Growers section!

Yep, we heard your whispers and decided, “Well, if that’s what you want, then that’s what you get!”

Rules of entering the Local Genetic Growers Section!

So, what are the rules for entering your favourite local strain? Well they are:

  • Any strain by a local breeder can be entered. Also, you do not need to be the breeder, only the grower – they’ll get their own crown later**.
  • This crop must be grown, harvested, cured, and submitted by the entrant – SO NO CHEATING. Also, it is illegal to purchase marijuana.
  • Your submission must be 15g of dry, cured, and manicured flower in a sealed glass jar or Terploc Bag and you must get it to us by 01 November 2021. So, if you’re based in Benoni make sure to send it a bit earlier. Yes, you can include humidity control sachets in your jar! Aren’t you a doll!
  • If your entry does not make the top 7 (no need to cry), you will have the option to collect your flower after the first round of judging. We’d suggest smoking it!

*Writer’s note: I’m just entering for the merchandise!

If you were wondering,

How many times can I enter?

It’s R500 for the first entry, and then after it is R200… God, how are these guys going to pay their staff? Sorry David and Brandon you’re going to have to eat noodles!

BUT be warned, it’s only one merch pack per person. 

**Oh, now it’s that officially later time! As we’re all about supporting South Africans the best local breeder will win prizes as well. So please attribute your strain to your local guys. For winning the best local strain we’ll be contributing R5000 towards branding and marketing their product! Yep, we’re going to be providing winning breeders with a budget towards packaging, logo, design, and website! After all, we want Cape Town, and South Africa to be the cannabis craft capital of the world.

Anyway, everyone’s a winner when entering, but how are the top three winner’s picked?


As you’d expect Zootly has done this right. We’ve searched high and low for professional adjudicators. All of them will be judging your bud for the following criteria:

Aesthetics: trichome development, resin production, bud density, and manicuring.

The Smell: is it fragrant?

Taste: we want to make sure that it is a tasty harvest.

And finally, the effect, the strength, and feelings of the high.

In the initial rounds of adjudication it will be strictly about the aesthetics and smell. As there’s no way we can smoke all that weed within a realistic time frame!

Once the top 7 have been finalised, then the judges will have two weeks to sample the top buds. This will all be done through blind tasting, with each flower being given a number.

So, once you’re ready, you’ll need to submit 15 grams of dried, cured, and manicured flowers in a sealed jar, with your name and the strain name on it using the sticker provided in your grower’s pack, by Monday, 1 November, 2021 to Zootly, 73 Kloof street, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001!

So, get growing and enter the Local Genetic Growers section now! Just swipe your card – now!

Entries Close!

Entries close exactly one week before submission is due, so act fast: Monday, 25 October, 2021
