Inspired by March Madness, The Dockside Cup is a five week long, bracket-style competition that takes place annually during March at Dockside Cannabis. Our top flower vendors enter their most prized, terpene-rich, beautiful, and smooth-hitting flower for our customers to smoke and vote on their favorite.
Here’s a wrap up of the matches and results from 2022:
