This is a sampling dream to get your products into the hands of hundreds of new customers—complete with feedback on your entries and thousands of impressions. All the best!

On Sunday, April 3rd, 2022, the Digital Awards Show will be held. Here we’ll showcase some of our most luxurious hemp products. With this in mind, stay hydrated, stash some munchies, find a designated driver or do whatever other steps you need to ensure it’s a safe competition.

Keep in mind—this is strictly a hemp-derived CBD competition only. Each product must be registered with the State of Origin and have evidence of laboratory results that the product is hemp-derived. Remember that products containing delta-8 THC will be evaluated separately from other categories.

Our Silver Sponsor Orange County CBD and our Bronze Sponsor Sweet Sensi deserve a mention. We couldn’t bring these amazing events to the public without their support.
