The Winners of the Cannabis Cup SoCal: People’s Choice Edition 2022

Another superb Cannabis Cup has come and gone, and here are the highly anticipated results of the High Times Cannabis Cup SoCal: People’s Choice Edition 2022! Thanks to everyone who stopped by our digital awards stream on July 24, where we introduced all of the first, second, and third place winners at this year’s SoCal People’s Choice Edition. If you missed the stream, you can catch the video here on our Facebook page, but we’ve also put together an extensive list of all of our amazing SoCal winners for you to enjoy.

This was the second-ever competition that was open to consumer judges in SoCal, and it was also one of the largest pools of judges that we’ve seen so far! The last High Times Cannabis Cup SoCal: People’s Choice Edition was held back in 2020, which highlighted an equally awesome selection of cannabis products to check out. But it’s been long overdue to revisit what kind of new strains and products have been gaining popularity in Southern California—and here we are.

Judges were provided a wide variety of unique products, many of which are exclusive to the Southern California cannabis market. From flower and pre-rolls to concentrates and edibles, we can’t thank you enough for dedicating your time and efforts to not only trying all of these amazing new products, but providing excellent feedback too.

Don’t forget you can check out the most up-to-date news on to see the winners of all of our recent People’s Choice competitions, including Colorado, Illinois, Alaska, and Massachusetts.
