Surely many of you are asking, “What is the Homegrown Cup?” We’d like to give you a brief history of the cup.
This cannabis cup was started in 2015 and came out of the ancient agricultural tradition of celebrating the harvest when the season comes to an end. Thus, the first Homegrown CUP was held in December 2015 in Eindhoven, and subsequent editions have taken place in different cities in the Netherlands.
For 6 years, and always around the same dates, the Homegrown CUP has been the finishing touch to the outdoor cannabis growing season, and evaluates the most outstanding strains on the market.
The 2020 cup was a “Home edition”, and was held in Tilburg under special conditions due to the corona virus crisis. Participation was occurred at home and the score was tallied through an app to ensure the safety of the participants.
Blackberry Gum Auto is a feminized autoflowering variety, with a delicious and fruity flavor that even the most gourmet palates have fallen in love with.
This is a strain that stands out for how beautiful it is. During the flowering period, the buds of Blackberry Gum Autoflowering become blue and purple, and give off a penetratingly sweet aroma: a total spectacle for the senses.
This indica-dominant hybrid is the result of a Bubble Gum x Blueberry cross, and will be ready to harvest approximately 75 days after germination. It is a genetic suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation, and has a high-flying effect thanks to its high THC levels that are around 22%.
Thanks to its relaxing, anxiolytic and long lasting effects, Blackberry Gum Auto is perfect to consume. A perfect prelude to a good night’s sleep.
In the process of creating Blackberry Gum, we had a clear premise: we wanted a genetics that would offer high-quality crops in record time. This is how this cannabis gem was born, a variety that in a short time gives away abundant harvests of buds full of resin.
