The Stepping High Festival, also known as the Jamaican Ganja Cup, is scheduled for March 5 and 6, 2016, in Negril, Jamaica. Offering an authentic Jamaican cultural experience built on the foundation of Rastafari culture and spirituality, family, community, friendship and love. The Stepping High Festival will feature exhibitions, entertainment and education—including seminars conducted by Oaksterdam University.

"Oaksterdam has partnered with Stepping High because of its focus on cannabis, the community, the Jamaican people, and the local jobs available because of the festival," said Dr. Aseem Sappal, provost and dean of faculty for Oaksterdam University. "Now is an exciting time. In addition to partnering with Stepping High, we're also working with the Jamaican government and the University of West Indies, where we are involved in helping lead important cannabis research and development."

Stepping High began in 2003 as an underground event promoted primarily by word of mouth and has become an enviable brand showcasing the finest strains of cannabis and a musical extravaganza that attracts thousands of people from around the world annually.

This year's event will feature two cannabis competitions to judge the highest quality Jamaican marijuana. The Best in the West contest entries will be from Western Jamaica, and the Nation's Best contest will include entries from ganja farmers island-wide.

"Unlike New York-based High Times events or L.A.-based Hempcon, The Emerald Cup is presented by locals, for locals, and the state’s definitive county fair draws much of California’s original cannabis industry." ~ SFGate, "Smell The Truth"

“Not only is the spirit of the event responsible, it is vital that the lessons it has to offer are heard and understood by those outside it. Sustainability, earth-friendly practices, clean medicine and better business standards all take center stage during the event, one which is beginning to attract a global audience.” ~ John Vergados, SKUNK Magazine

The Emerald Cup will make its highly anticipated return to the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California, on December 13 and 14. For more than a decade, The Emerald Cup has become synonymous with setting the highest standards for sustainable, sun-grown, outdoor cannabis and is the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competition in the world, making it “The Definitive Cup for the Fall Harvest.”

For the third year in a row, SKUNK Magazine will present the Emerald Cup’s grand prize of an all-inclusive stay for two at their resort, Pure Garden, in Negril, Jamaica.
