Grey-Bruce growers compete for label of top pot

Grey-Bruce is gaining a reputation for its high-quality cannabis.

Andy Elliott, whose White Squirrel strain won the BS Fall Fair outdoor growing competition at Saturday’s second annual Wiarton Bongspiel, said the premium quality of the weed in the competition was proof of what can be done with some soil, seeds and a bit of tender loving care.

“It is some pretty good stuff here. You would be surprised,” Elliott said from the basement of the Wiarton and District Curling Club, where 10 locally grown products were facing off against each other in the competition.

“The best cannabis is coming out of people’s backyards, not from the LPs (licenced producers),” Elliott said. “While they got in it to make money, these people got into it because they love cannabis.”

The outdoor growing competition was refined at this year’s Bongspiel after organizers were admittedly still learning the ropes at last year’s event and participants were a little “distracted and baked.” So for 2020 they gave it a formal name – the BS Fall Fair – and brought in a much more stringent judging criteria.
