There were 75 awards given out on November 30th to innovative businesses of all sizes. View the list of winners here.
The top 5 things we loved about the 2017 Canadian Cannabis Awards #liftcca2017
#1: The acceptance speeches! These awards meant so much to companies that won. It was awesome to hear the sincerity in their voices and be a part of their big moment.
#2 The production value! We were in general admission but the screens, the sound and the lighting all provided an awesome awards show experience.

#4 The innovative energy! So many startup and new businesses in the room. The networking was fabulous, the room was friendly, and full of smart people. Congratulations to AHLOT (the team behind Ritual Box) on your nomination!

#5 The TVape Lounge. The first ever vape at an awards show, it’s was a VIP experience for those with a medical prescription. It really felt like the future of cannabis! Congratulations TVape on your awards and thank you for the fun experience.
