The second annual Cannabist Awards were presented November 16th, 2016 at the Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, honoring the most progressive and brightest names in the cannabis industries. The Cannabist, who ran the awards, is a Denver Post owned journalism company that has quickly become the authoritative voice on cannabis.

The four questions considered by the six judges:

  • How unique is the finalist’s work in this category?
  • Is the finalist pushing the cannabis industry into a better future with innovative solutions?
  • How much of an impact is the finalist making in this category?
  • How much does the finalist epitomize the spirit of what’s written in the category description?

It’s a great honor to have our extensive work recognized and to accept the title as #1 brand in the Hemp CBD industry. Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted for us, and congratulations to all the other deserving winners!

  1. Congrats!!!

      • Hi Brandon

        My 2 year old daughter has gastroparesis and is much much better using your oil. We’ve been ordering from your company for months. However we’re having a very unpleasant experience with our last order. The order got lost on the way here, according to your customer service. Meanwhile we ran out of the bottle we had and my daughter has been unable to keep anything down and has been vomiting since 12/09. My husband called and ordered another one but nothing other than a sample has been offered to us as a customer patience appreciation. As I’m writing this I’m waiting for the 2nd order to get here to give it to my daughter so she can feel better

  5. I would like to express the gratitude I have for this product! I’ve been buying cannabis at a ridiculous prices ( I come from New York) I had been researching CBD oils, for 2 yrs.

IT relieves my mind from racing a million miles, soothes my attitude, and Keeps,
    me more relaxed, what else can you ask for! TOTALLY FANTASTIC.

  7. This first story I read caught my attention, as I also have depression, bipolar, and severe anxiety! And sometimes I’m in a lot of pain with my pinched nerve and disk issue in my neck.. which leaves me in the bed for days,.. could this help?

  8. I have been in pain for 17 years, I am tired, please tell me how to order this, i will try it

  9. Please tell me how to order. Frank Bartolo

  10. Hello my questions are probably some you read everyday. But, I know just enough about CBD Oil to be stupid. I have Fibro, Depression, TMJ, IBS, Osteoarthritis, Migraine headaches, Insomnia, reconstructed Achilles Tendon with 80 percent mobility. I have read articles and watched TV shows on the very subject. I have no idea the amount of CBD oil I need to take. I grew up a teenager in the late 60’s and 70’s. I don’t need to nor do I want to get a buzz. I have tried edibles and they have helped quite a bit. Just breaking off a bite of a brownie has helped the pain in my neck, shoulders, arms and hands. It has also helped me fall asleep at night.Which is a huge accomplishment for me.

  11. Hello, I am Madam President Octavia Wells Ibama. I will try this supplement. -OO
