Kevin Jodrey personally made sure that our next special judge was here this year and for good reason. She’s a cannabis writer, runs a website called Certified Dank where she is on a quest to find the best cannabis. We think she’s going to find that at this event and we can’t wait to hear what she thinks.
Caitlin Podiak has been writing about cannabis since 2010, for magazines and websites including Cannabis Now, The Highway, Leafly, DOPE Magazine, SF Evergreen, Shakti Yogi Journal, 91LIFE, The Hairpin, Pot Couture, and her personal blog, as well as for various dispensaries and brands.
She prefers organic sungrown flowers and is particularly interested in the unique qualities of cannabis cultivated with biodynamic and regenerative methods. Caitlin is always eager to sample new and different varietals, as well as landraces and heirloom genetics. She especially enjoys cerebrally stimulating hazes, soothing purple strains, and hybrids with a balanced ratio of THC and CBD. She tends to avoid OG Kush, Girl Scout Cookies, Sour Diesel, and Headband. Her favorite terpene is linalool.
We consider her someone that will be able to identify the nuances and differences you tend to experience with a biodynamically grown cannabis and can appreciate the efforts of the producer who choose a regenerative cultivation method. We think she’ll represent an educated perspective and bring a high level of critique into the mix.
Be sure to tune in tomorrow on November 18th for The Golden Tarp Awards kicking off at 11am PST!
