Things To Do At The SoCal Cannabis Cup 2018
To give you an idea of what to expect at the 420 cup in San Bernardino, we’ll go over a few of the confirmed attractions.
The Ferris Wheel is a great first stop to get a higher view of the event. It’s a great way to mellow out in between performances. We recommend finding your best bud, getting high and riding into the sky.
Get baked so its easier to get completely immersed in one of Hologate’s virtual reality games.
You can fight dragons, shoot zombies or even have a virtual snowball fight while standing in sunny California.
If you’re planning on spending time in the medicating area, you’re definitely going to catch yourself starving at some point. Especially if you try any of the super appetite-stimulating delta 8 THC.
Fortunately, we will have a huge variety of food for you to choose from with over 30 food trucks on-site.
There will be tacos, hot dogs, burgers, pizza, funnel cake, kettle corn, ice cream, barbeque, pho, greek, fusion, middle-eastern, east African food and plenty more.
A fun way to work out, play with others and stay alert after medicating is a few rounds of laser tag.
Emerald Events will be constructing a laser tag arena for two teams of six to go to war inside of.
What better time to go for a ride on the super slide than when you’re super high? Most other situations involving a super slide also come with a bunch of kids and their disgruntled parents.
At the 420 Cup, you’ll be able to hit a bong and then the slide with no paranoia. Leave your eye-stinging solutions at home. You can rock your red eyes and dank cologne with pride.
You’ll only get the utmost support and approval from us.
Turn yourself into a walking piece of art at the Black Light Visuals station. Black Light Visuals is a collective of Artists led by Brad Lawerence best known for the dipping art of body marbling.
UV reactive, non-toxic acrylic paint is used to create trippy, colorful patterns on your arm or body.
You won’t have to worry about showing up to work on Monday morning still glowing. The paint washes off easily with soap and water.
Who doesn’t want to be around adorable baby pigs and goats while blazed for days? Yup. There’s gonna be farm animals in a petting zoo at this years SoCal Cannabis Cup.
You’ll be able to see fainting goats, baby pigs, dwarf goats, babydoll sheep, Indian runner ducks, exotic chickens, bunnies and more.

You’ll want to be at the stage when winners in each category are announced. It’ll give you a chance to find some of the winners in the prop 215 area to try them out and see if you agree with the judges.
Ever since High Times fan Rogelio Vega (Supa Pilot Roc Vega) sent us a photo of his cannabis cup inspired front-piece, we started inviting tattoo artists to our events.
This year will be no different. Artists from Colours Couture will be on-site, inking to your heart’s content.
