GHP News is excited to announce the return of our Commercial Cannabis Awards! The awards aim to reward and expose those pioneering individuals and firms who have stood in the face of adversity to create a booming industry through helping those in need.
The Commercial Cannabis Awards are your chance to talk to our audience about your experiences within a once controversial industry, how you haven taken steps in helping people with pains and illnesses and building upon a young industry despite opposition.
Medical research has showed the use of cannabis and hemp products to be safe and effective for many ailments. Even in countries where the use of marijuana is still illegal, people are reaping the benefits of Hemp and CBD products.
Taking part in the Commercial Cannabis Awards is the perfect way to showcase your new products and innovations to an audience of top level CEOs and healthcare professionals, as well as showing your employees that their efforts are valued by the organisation, whilst also providing the public with evidence of your successes as a business. Notifying stakeholders of your participation in our programme indicates that your business is garnering the attention of third parties, and that your work or your expertise, customer service or products offered are creating a buzz within the industry.
The Commercial Cannabis Awards welcomes nominations from all who work in the sector, including but not limited to doctors, cultivators, budtenders, lawyers, retailers, dispensaries, researchers, insurance companies, technicians and more! The awards will highlight those companies who are found to be driving the innovation and competition within their sectors, ensuring that the most deserving businesses get to stand in the spotlight this year.
Winning a one of our awards provides you with the evidence you need to prove, beyond doubt, that you stand apart from the competition. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders, allows for the promotion of your brand to extend even further, which in turn can attract talented new employees, looking to work for the best and new clients and customers looking to work with the best.
As mentioned, our programme is open to all businesses operating in this industry, we also encourage those companies and organisations, who facilitate the growth and development of this business community, to join the programme and allow for their efforts in making certain an equitable opportunity exists for these new and innovative endeavours to thrive.
Our awards are based solely on merit, rather than the number of votes received. Our process works to ensure that we reward parties based on their excellence in the industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to service.
So if you know of any company or organisation you feel is deserving of a nomination in this prestigious award, please leave their details in the voting form below. We can also accept self-nominations so please feel free to nominate your own organisation!

The team encourage external nominations from GHP magazine subscribers, web visitors, social media following, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination, all firms and individuals are obviously free to accept or decline if they so wish. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit supporting information. There is no obligation to supply such material, we have found however that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as do our research team.
Our dedicated research team assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or by the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment based on various criteria such as great contribution to the global healthcare or pharmaceutical industries, longevity, diversification, sustained or continued growth, significant innovations, feedback from patients and customers etc.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the GHP website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We offer a range of promotional packages and items to GHP award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, trophies, content in our magazine and content on our website.
We encourage winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure. Announcements via company websites, blogs, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch.
