What Are the Cannabis Business Awards?
February 21st, 2018
We’re used to the awards ceremonies we see on television and read about in the news. We’re treated to the Emmy Awards for television, the Oscar Awards for film, and the Grammy Awards for music. But did you know that there is also an annual awards ceremony for individuals and companies in the global cannabis space?
Enter the Cannabis Business Awards and its red carpet Industry Appreciation Holiday Gala. The CBAs are put on every year by Clover Leaf Consulting, an organization founded by businesswoman Chloe Villano in 2010. A former paralegal, Villano has worked for years in the cannabis industry as one of the top business consultants in Colorado. Villano claims to have “consulted for, started, sold, and performed due-diligence for valuation on more successful cannabis business than any other.” Villano’s been part of many initiatives across the United States to help normalize the industry, and she started the Cannabis Business Awards in 2012 in part so that she could give recognition to business and individuals that helped pass Amendment 64 in Colorado.
And it appears the Awards have been a resounding success. Villano claims People, Fox Business, The New York Times, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and NBC as some of the media outlets that have highlighted her organization.
The Honorary Ceremony presented by Villano will bring together some of the global cannabis industry’s biggest heavy hitters and promises to celebrate achievements with “industry game changers, trailblazers and cannabis thought leaders.” Past award winners include Jack Splitt for Most Influential Individual, Matthew Aiken of Sweet Leaf for top Cannabis Executive, as well as Women Grow for the Industry Organization of the Year.
So why not make check out the Cannabis Business Awards when they are presented later this year? As its website says, “Join us as we celebrate the fastest growing industry in America and the industry executives creating history as we take marijuana mainstream.” If you can’t visit the awards ceremony in Denver, Colorado this year, there are other ways you can stay connected. The Awards operate two Twitter accounts (@cannabis_awards and @cannabisawards), and an Instagram account (@cannabisawards), a Facebook account (http://facebook.com/CannabisBusinessAwards). Want to join in on the fun? The Cannabis Business Awards says that you can join the dialogue from your computer or mobile device using hashtags #CannabisBusinessAwards, #CannaAwards, #CannaAwards, and #CannaBizAwards.
To say that the award categories are extensive and comprehensive is an understatement. The ceremony will honor individuals from the Most Influential Individual to the Cannabis Executive Of Year. Other individual awards include Activist of the Year, Advocate of the year, Political Industry Representative of the Year, Manager of the Year, Budtender of the year, and Cannabis Woman of the Year. The awards don’t skimp out on recognizing some of the wonderful products that this industry has made come to life, with awards being handed out for the Best Invention, Best Flower, Best Extract, Best Edible, as well as the best Infused and Hemp Products. Lastly, organizations are also going to be honored by the awards ceremony. These awards include Non-Profit of the Year, Cannabis Business of the Year, Best Medical Center, Best Retail Center, Publication of the Year Award (limited to non-online outlets), Most Influential Media Source. There are also some very special awards that will be granted during the event, such as the Lifetime Achievement Awards and 5 MVP Awards.
There is a cost to attend the awards ceremony: general admission costs $150 at the door, but if you have the foresight to order them in advance, you can save money by paying a ticket price of $99 (all figures in USD). You can arrange admission and a table for four guests for $600, and you can even pay extra to obtain an 8 or 12-person Top VIP Table.
This isn’t the first time the Business Awards have been held. In fact, the awards have been held every year since 2012. You can even take a look at photo galleries for every year since 2012 by visiting CannabisBusiessInfo.com. The Awards Ceremony also has a dedicated website that can be found at CannabisBusinessAwards.com.
The Cannabis Business Awards are not the only cannabis awards ceremonies; there are also the Canadian Cannabis Awards put on by Lift Canada, an organization that hopes to be the thought leader in the Canadian cannabis space. But if you are looking for a cannabis awards ceremony with a focus on recognizing businesses and individuals across North America, including from both Canada and United States, it might be worth it to check out this year’s Cannabis Business Awards by Clover Leaf Consulting, which will be held in December, 2018 at a venue in Denver, Colorado. Can’t make it to this year’s CBA’s in Colorado? Then you may want to check out the California version of the Cannabis Business Awards. That event will be held Saturday September 29, 2018 at 7PM. The venue is still to be announced, but you can check this link at a later date in order to obtain further details.
