In its third year, Cultivation Classic has become something more than a barometer for Oregon's finest organic-equivalent cannabis.

In addition to the cup-style competition, this year's Classic served as an incubator for cutting-edge research that will help scientists build a taxonomy of cannabis chemovars—that is, a classification system based on the chemical composition of a strain, rather than colloquial labels or defunct terms like "indica" and "sativa"—the goal being to help consumers and patients find products with reliable outcomes.

Focusing past the event's evolving scientific intentions, several new awards were created to incentivize agricultural sustainability, genetic diversity and stability, as well as innovation at the social, political, educational and manufacturing levels.

Here are the winners, announced last night at Revolution Hall:
