Award Program Recognizes Best of Michigan Cannabis Industry
The innovators and the risk takers. The hard workers and the crafty creators. The maestros of marketing and the brilliance of budtenders. All of this mix and much more—such as sweat, blood, restless nights and some tears—goes into creating a successful business and brand in Michigan’s booming cannabis industry. That’s why your friends at Michigan GreenState decided that the craftsmen and craftswomen who make up this increasingly important segment of the state’s economy deserve some recognition. They already have our respect and admiration, but some love from our readers, the loyal customers of Michigan’s dispensaries, may be the ultimate compliment.
Michigan GreenState has launched its annual Best of the Best in the Michigan Cannabis Industry. This Readers’ Choice program recognizes some of the industry’s finest, from budtenders, dispensary staff and growers, to dispensaries, edibles and social media presence. We’ve made every effort in setting this up to make sure our categories cover everything: Michigan Cannabis, Michigan CBD, Michigan Dispensaries, Michigan Cannabis Events, Michigan Cannabis Marketing, and Michigan People in Cannabis. We also look to identify the Best City for Cannatourism, Best 420 Party, Best Cannabis Friendly Lodging and Best Consumption Lounge.
“We cover it all,” said Ed Fritz, Michigan GreenState Publisher. “The program is designed to recognize the best of the best in the Michigan Cannabis Industry. This means its product, people, and places.”
Here’s how it works:
- The program has a nomination round and a voting round. Anyone can be nominated during the nomination round in the various categories. Readers began nominating on November 19. The top 5 nominees from each category are placed into the voting round. Voting begins January 21. Michigan GreenState will announce the top 3 finishers at the conclusion of the program. Voting concludes on February 10. Winners will be announced March 16 in a special edition of Michigan GreenState Magazine.
- All nominating and voting will be online at MiGreenState.com
Fritz and the rest of the Michigan GreenState team are excited to be part of what’s become nothing short of a phenomenon.
“The cannabis industry is a becoming big part of the Michigan economy,” Fritz noted. “There are a lot of entrepreneurs and innovators that are involved in building a strong future for this industry. This Best of the Best initiative is designed to recognize the hard work and dedication that these people are putting forth.”
