Errl Cup FAQ - Secret Shopping & Testing

Secret Shopping & Testing
How we go about the secret shopping process and our testing
Why do you secret shop?
We originally started our event to get a point of view from the patient/consumer vantage point.  So we decided to go out and buy from all the dispensaries in the area that produced flower medicine and then we would have a better idea of what medicine was out there for the patients.  Several winners of our Cup’s have been secret shopped medication.
When do you secret shop?
We normally secret shop the area we are doing the event in, a couple months before the event.  That way we can purchase the medicine and have that medicine put in our judges kits and give to the lab for testing.
What do you secret shop?
Depending of the event we secret shop flowers from dispensaries for our Errl Cup events and secret shop concentrates in for our 710 Degree Cup.
How do you secret shop?
When our secret shopper goes into a dispensary to purchase medicine, the only thing we will pick is if we want a Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid.  We allow the bud tender to choose the strain.  We ask for the best and what is grown in house or grown by a certain dispensary/marijuana product producer.
Who do you secret shop?
Arizona:  We secret shop all of Maricopa County for all dispensaries that grow their own flower and/or produce their own concentrates. Which is determined by which event we are secret shopping for.   We also secret shop Tucson and other dispensaries in Arizona.

Nevada: We secret shop all of the Greater Las Vegas Area, Reno/Tahoe and Carson City.   We also we secret shop for flower if they grow their own and concentrate is they produced their own.

Who does your testing?
All of our testing is done by the approved lab we have selected at the begin of our event year.  This lab along with most labs in the area we are having are event are interview and from the interview process we determine how we pick as our exclusive testing lab for that event year.  Each year we do the same process.
