Bluebird Botanicals was declared the #1 Hemp CBD Company at the 2016 Cannabist Awards
The second annual Cannabist Awards were presented November 16th, 2016 at the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, honoring the most progressive and brightest names in the cannabis industries. The Cannabist, who ran the awards, is a Denver Post owned journalism company that has quickly become the authoritative voice on cannabis.
Out of the sea of competition, Bluebird Botanicals emerged as the #1 Hemp CBD company!
The four questions considered by the six judges:
- How unique is the finalist’s work in this category?
- Is the finalist pushing the cannabis industry into a better future with innovative solutions?
- How much of an impact is the finalist making in this category?
- How much does the finalist epitomize the spirit of what’s written in the category description?
It’s a great honor to have our extensive work recognized and to accept the title as #1 brand in the Hemp CBD industry. Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for us, and congratulations to all the other deserving winners!
