Meet The Winners Of The International Cannabis Business Awards
A few weeks ago, movers and shakers in the cannabis industry gathered in Las Vegas for one of the longest-standing award shows in the space, The Cannabis Business Awards.
With an impressive lineup and an outstanding list of nominees, the event was hosted at Hakkasan, one of America’s top nightclubs according to Rolling Stone, Playboy Magazine and DJ Mag. Attendees included 1998 Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams and former NBA player Al Harrington.
“This is a green revolution, full of dedicated pioneers, trailblazers, and inventors who have pushed this industry forward,” Chloe Villano, founder of Clover Leaf University and The Cannabis Business Awards, told Benzinga. “The CBA Globes honor the great work of the people in the industry and the efforts to pioneer the end of the drug war. This is the place where you find a crowd of the most elite.”
Below is a list of the winners by category.

Ethical & Sustainable
Good people. Good companies. Good business.
One of the most important criteria the awards (and the cannabis industry as a whole) is to emphasize the responsible and positive impact that cannabis has on the World. The central driving force of the awards is the ethical and sustainable principals and practices adopted by the industry.

An industry like no other
The industry with History and Heart
All around the world the cannabis industry is predominantly made up by activists, patients, environmentalists, carers, and others who put social justice first. Let’s face it – not many other sectors began as medically oppressed minorities.
We are both liberals and conservatives, politicians and plumbers, rich and poor, indigenous and immigrants. We are a very diverse group with many differences, but we all come together as one to support this amazing plant.
With more than 420+ cannabis companies across 50+ categories, The Green List helps hemp and cannabis companies to promote their products, services, and events online.
The marketplace is an essential hub for consumers to explore, connect and purchase from cannabis businesses who share a passion and commitment to the plant.
