About the Awards

The Cannabist Awards will recognize the world’s top marijuana and hemp businesses, researchers, technologists, thought leaders, products, influencers and philanthropists. Winners will be announced at a live event in Las Vegas on Nov. 16, 2016 during the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo.


We encourage everyone to nominate the future-forward cannabis businesses, organizations, products and people who are taking the marijuana space into a post-legalized era. Think about the change-makers and the leading disruptors when making your nominations, which will be accepted until noon Mountain time on Oct. 24, 2016.

Award Categories

A panel of expert judges selected by The Cannabist Staff will choose the winners in 40 categories — and also appoint the 2016 Cannabist Person of the Year. Categories will celebrate the best in cannabis and hemp technology, research, sustainability, education, philanthropy and other forward-looking facets in the evolving marijuana space.
