What comes inside of a Hemp Cup Kit?

There are about 225 different products in the competition spread across 13 different types of kits. There will be 12 different types of kits for humans, and 1 type of kit for Pets. The type of kit that a customer will receive is chosen at random, so Judges will not be able to choose which kit they get. If one customer orders multiple kits, High Times will ensure that each kit received is different, up to a maximum of 12 different types of kits. The Pet Products kit will be available as a stand-alone item, and there is only one variety of The Pet Products kit.
There will be about 25-27 items in each kit. Each kit will include products from the following categories of hemp-derived products:
Concentrates & Extracts
Topical lotions, Salves, Oils, and Balms
Sublinguals and Tinctures

Each Hemp Cup Judge Kit comes with a Judges Card which gives you a link to the High Times Judge Portal and the access code for the specific Judge Kit type you have. Judges will access the Judge Portal to find a list of products within their kit and can choose the product they are testing, then submit their scores and feedback based on the portal’s questions and criteria. Please leave detailed comments in the comments section, and include a description of your entire experience with the product.
Is there a maximum number of kits I can buy?
Judge Kit purchases are limited to 1 of each kit type per person, which is equal to a maximum of 12 traditional kits, and 1 pet products kit. This helps us ensure that all products are judged properly.
What if there is a product in the kit I do not know how to judge? Can someone help me?
Yes! We want all products to be judged, so if you cannot judge all products, please ask friends and family to help. Please have them input your email address that you provided when purchasing so we can ensure we see scores from your account for all products.
