Commercial Cannabis Awards
About the Commercial Cannabis Awards
We are delighted to welcome you to the Commercial Cannabis Awards 2022! At Global Health & Pharma, we are dedicated to bringing our readers the latest developments across the Health, Medicine, and Pharmaceutical sectors. Recognising the boom that the Cannabis market has experienced over the last decade, for the past three years we have used our platform to reward the top performing companies that are driving growth within this emerging and dynamic industry!
While a lot of businesses were still going through a period of recovery following the pandemic, 2021 was instead a landmark year in many ways for the Cannabis industry. An increasing number of governments around the world have made moves to legalize commercial sales, and alongside this international interest and consumption levels have also skyrocketed. Policies regarding both buying and selling Cannabis are gradually becoming laxer, as culturally we are beginning to embrace the drug for its medicinal and recreational benefits.
In recent years, support has been growing not just from consumers but at the corporate level as well. Investors are seeing the burgeoning Cannabis market as a lucrative opportunity, strengthening their backing of the AgTech, Biotech, and Digital segments that are driving the industry’s expansion. Cannabis M&A activity in the US soared to new hights in 2021, with the total number of transactions equating to more than the previous two years combined. With influential corporations including Amazon, Apple, and Shopify showing support for the sector, it’s not a stretch to assume that Commercial Cannabis will evolve into a major economic force globally in the coming years.
As the size and scope of the Cannabis industry continues to broaden, we aim for the Commercial Cannabis Awards 2022 to act as an ultimate guide to the Cultivators, Manufacturers, Distributors, Retailers, and other ancillary service providers shaping the sector today. Through this programme, Global Health & Pharma will provide a platform for our winners to promote their products and services to an engaged audience of over 110,000 professionals worldwide. We offer a variety of advertising tools suited to all budgets – and there are no mandatory costs at any stage in the awards process – so no matter the level of coverage you are looking for, we can cater to you!
Should you like to nominate yourself, or a deserving business you know, you can do so using the form provided or by contacting our helpful Awards Team directly. We undertake a thorough research and selection process, relying on our own unbiased in-house team to assess all potential nominees solely on merit in order to determine the eventual recipients. We look forward to announcing the winners of the Commercial Cannabis Awards 2022 later in the year, and wish the best of luck to all participants!

Researching Global Health & Pharma nominees
The team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. 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.
Shortlisting our nominees
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.
Judging & evaluating nominees
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.
Reaching out to winners
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.
Make the most of your win
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.
