Tim Blake

Emerald Cup Founder

Emerald Cup founder and counterculture thought leader Tim Blake shares his deep knowledge of and appreciation for cannabis, entheogens, and psychedelics by tapping into over 50 years of firsthand highs and lows.

Tim created and continues to produce the Emerald Cup, now entering its 18th year as the longest-running organic cannabis competition and gathering of the cannabis community in the world.

Tim sponsored and helped produce the first gathering of law enforcement and cannabis farmers in the country to openly discuss how they could work together. He was the co-founder of the Mendocino Farmers Collective and also Healing Harvest Farms, both local cannabis dispensaries designed to help facilitate getting sun grown cannabis into the dispensaries across the state. He was a founding member of Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform (CCPR), which evolved into ReformCA (Prop 64), and was also a founding member of the Mendocino Cannabis Policy Council (MCPC). Tim was on the steering committee for the Mendocino Heritage Initiative (Measure AF), which was on the county ballot in 2016. Tim was a founding member of The Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association (MCIA). Tim helped create Emerald Cup Farms, a cannabis product and retail company.

Since childhood Tim has had ongoing interactions with our space family. In 1973, Tim started listening daily to Dialogue Conspiracy, featuring Mae Brussel. He has continued to read books and listen to conspiracy theorists to this day. In 1979, Tim dedicated his life to being a bridge between humans and Extraterrestrials after reading UFO…Contact From The Pleiades, which featured Billy Meier. Tim’s been meditating daily since 1976.

Tim's personal goal is to help the world integrate spirituality, cannabis, psychedelics, and organic food and living into a holistic lifestyle, and to bring the message that our friends from the stars are already here and have been interacting with us since humans were created.
