The 5th Annual Karma Cup held in Toronto September, 2018

The historic 2018 Karma Cup Recap with Craig Ex from Expert Joints

Catch Craig Ex aka The Expert of Expert Joints hosting the 2018 Karma Cup! This was a historic cup because it was the last one of its kind in the sense that cannabis legalization happened shortly after.

The Karma Cup is one of Canada’s biggest cannabis cups, and the winners are always a who’s who of some of the country’s most promising cannabis connoisseurs.

Craig Ex was hosting the 5th annual Karma Cup, and it was packed. From lineups that went around the block, around the corner, around the next block AND the next corner, it’s crazy to see how much the Karma Cup has grown.

Craig talks to cannabis mainstays like Dave from Bhogart, Amy Anonymous from SwearNet, the Sublimator Warrior, and the endlessly quotable REMO, who tells Craig:

“It’s raining buds here at the Karma Cup. This is the best Karma Cup ever, look how many people are around us!

This was actually the hardest Karma Cup to judge, ever!”

Marcus aka BCBubbleman shouts out organizer Sarah Sunday and the incredible job she’s done with lineups out the door.

Craig makes sure to say “What’s up” to the homies from the Thompson Caribou Concentrates squuuuaaaad and talks about the entries the entered into this year’s cup.

And just so you don’t think it’s all cannabis insiders, there was DJ’s, entertainment, and speakers to entertain all the canna-curious. The Karma Cup is famous in Canada for representing the best of Craft Cannabis- you could say they’re giving their canna-best!

Next we heard how 91 Supreme has been steamrolling the award shows lately and Ollie from Qandy tells Craig what he’s all about. Apparently Qandy is vegan, organic, and gluten-free hard candies with about 200 mg in each box, which makes it perfect for Canada’s stereotypically hipster and environmentally-friendly crowd. Each piece has approximately 8 mg of that THC goodness.

Next up is Jeremiah and Carley Marley- the Cannabis Culture crew! Word to the wise is Jeremiah just recently opened a 420-friendly retro video game lounge in Vancouver called High Score, and it’s amazing. Check out the exclusive CLN interview with Jeremiah and revisit all your favorite video games from the late 70’s (like the classic arcade Galaga) all the way up to the 16-bit Super Nintendo days.

Craig then talks to Mark from Roll Your Own and sees the dope swag at the table before checking out the latest and greatest from the Fukushima Preroll Factory like the 2 gram Moon Rocket.

The multiple award-winner known as the Phat Pharmer tells Craig about the 6 entries he has in this year’s Karma Cup and then Craig stops to chop it up with the one and only BC Bud Gal.

At the High Voltage tent, witness a massive dab that’s more than dab worthy! Mike from Smokers Guide Canada tells Craig about the latest edition and then Honey Badger Extracts talks about their past Karma Cup wins plus the entries they had this year.

You can never go wrong with the beautiful Tweedledoob and as Craig tells her:

“It’s a good day any day you get a chance to smoke a  joint with you.

One of my favorite people in Toronto and one of my favorite Instagram accounts.

If you don’t follow Tweedledoob, there’s something wrong with you!”

On a side note, props to Craig for the (unintentional?) rhymes and he is The Expert after all so you know he knows what he’s talking about!

Next, the one and only Redbeard, who organizes the Great Canadian Glass Gathering. He’s famous for his signature glass-blown masterpieces that perfectly blends smokeable bongs and pipes with art. Last but not least, Craig says hi to our friend Al the Alchemist who’s rocking an awesome Temple of Calyx t-shirt.

Now, it’s the moment of truth as Craig Ex and Sarah Sunday announce the much-deserving winners of the 2018 Karma Cup!
