Standards for Qualification

The Oakland Cup seeks to educate our competitors as well as the public. Our goal is ensuring only quality products reach our judges and that the playing field has met our standards. Products with any detectable pesticides, over the current state limit of residual solvents and over the allowed microbial will be disqualified from the competition. We are testing pesticides to the current accepted state limits. The testing protocols in California are in a constant state of change and we are working to keep as current as possible.

Submissions must be filled out with completed application.

  • Flower Entries require a three ounce submission.

  • All concentrate entries are required to submit 10 grams.  

  • All specialized categories will have specific requirements for entry listed on the application.


A fee of 420 dollars will be required with your submission. This will include lab testing for pesticide, insecticide, and any residual chemical additives.
