The Grow-Off Rules

Below indicates a list of the short competition rules. A comprehensive version is also linked to this page, under full contest rules.

The Rules

The Grow-Off Inc. – Canadian Edition – is a science-based competitive event for Licensed Cannabis Cultivators, that provides a “mystery” planlet to participants with the goal of cultivating cannabis tested in three categories:

Highest Yield: 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Highest Cannabinoid Content: 1st, 2nd, 3rd
Terpene Content: 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Licensed cultivator participants are given the same cultivar chosen by The Grow-Off team. The Cultivar is legally distributed via a select Licensed company, and is the recipient cultivator’s to keep!
The event is based on fairness, scientific testing, and transparency – therefore eliminating the judging subjectivity often recognized in events such as Cannabis Cups.

The format provides 14 weeks for growing, during which participants provide weekly progress updates for adherence to contest rules. Then approximately 3 weeks are provided for curing and laboratory review. The Award Ceremony is then announced where participants and sponsors congregate to share the great experience!
