Competition includes expanded categories and free admission for members

BURLINGTON, Vermont – Following the successful relaunch of Heady Vermont’s platform this fall, the cannabis media and events company has announced the return of The Headies, the state’s largest annual competition for growers.

The 2018 and 2019 competitions attracted numerous competitors in several categories, including THC and CBD flower, concentrates, topicals and edibles, and culminated in an epic Awards Party.

For 2021-22, the organizers have added new categories and free Awards entry for members. In the interest of keeping things COVID-safe, the Cup has been moved to spring, so that attendees can enjoy warmer weather and a bit of extra room. Once again, the Awards event will include a showcase of all entries, onsite demos, exhibitors, food and live music.

“When we were looking at Heady this year, it was readily apparent that the Cup had the most potential for growth out of all of our signature events,” said Heady Vermont CEO Monica Donovan. “We’re really looking forward to focusing some energy into not just growing this Cup along with the adult use market, but making sure it continues to be a platform that showcases the best locally-grown cannabis and locally made products from the many talented small growers and makers that live and work here.”

In support of maximizing participation, Heady Vermont has expanded the range of entry categories to include pre-rolls and additional concentrates. The company will also be announcing special guest judges, and has added a VIP membership option that includes People’s Choice Judging.

Interested competitors, vendors and sponsors can go to for more information and to sign up. Competitors may sign up now through early 2022. Judging will begin in February/March. Heady Vermont members receive discounts on competitor entries and free entry to the Awards Party. Awards Party tickets will go on sale in January.
