1988 High Times Cannabis Cup
In 1988 High Times editor and cannabis cup creator Steven Hager travelled to Amsterdam with Grow Guru Dr Indoors and a photographer to write an article on millionaire Dutch cannabis seed merchant Nevil Schoenmakers, who founded the first ever seed bank in 1984 named "The Seed Bank of Holland".
Not long after publishing the article Steven Hager began organising the first ever cannabis cup which was held in Amsterdam in November 1988.
Three seed companies participated in the cup and 3 judges were selected. (Steven Hager, his photographer and Dr Indoors)
