Prize Sponsors: Trimbag & Homegrown Cannabis Co!

We are excited to announce that the prize sponsors of this year’s NYGC End of Grow Awards are Trimbag and Homegrown Cannabis Co! We have given out prizes from both of these sponsors before in the past, and the feedback has always been positive! We are excited to have another opportunity to give some of these awesome prizes away!

End of Grow Prizes!

We have some great prizes lined up for our winners! Two lucky growers will receive a Trimbag Original dry trimmer. Two more lucky growers will each receive two 8-packs of seed from Homegrown Cannabis Co!

Trimming by hand is easily the most tedious part of growing your own, but there is a way to escape from “trim jail”! Introducing, TrimBag! The TrimBag is a large canvas cylinder that acts as a friction trimmer. You load untrimmed buds into the bag, and then roll, spin, and shake the bag manually for only a few minutes. The interior canvas provides the friction to pull the leaves from the buds without damaging the flowers. With the Trimbag, you can accomplish a 12-hour trimming job in less than 1 hour!

If you’d like to purchase a Trimbag for your own grow, the best deals can be found on We have a special discount code! Use code CCFC to receive 15% off your order.

Homegrown Cannabis Co is one of our top recommended online seed banks for growers in the US. They offer discreet shipping, excellent customer service, and a germination guarantee. Two of our NYGC End of Grow Award winners will each receive two 8-packs of feminized seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co! The winners will each get to choose two strains from the following options: Fat Mazzy, Lemon Tree, and Blackberry Kush.

Homegrown Cannabis Co carries a huge variety of seeds, and they frequently run special sales and promotions. We have a special discount code you can use for every purchase made on! Enter code DRCOCO at checkout to save 10% on your order.
