Best News Source
Best in Cannabis Industry
Business of Cannabis
Business of Cannabis was founded in 2017 because we recognized that an incredibly sophisticated, exciting and disruptive industry was emerging - but that the industry and its innovators weren't being accurately reflected in the media. We're working to change that. We craft content, custom research and experiences that illuminate and showcase the companies, brands, people and trends driving the global cannabis industry.

Her(B) Life
At first it started as a fun idea between friends; Let's write a blog that's part lifestyle and part business, let's make it particular to cannabis and gear it toward female readers. We just wanted to talk about cannabis - but we also love entrepreneurship, design, marketing, start up culture and all things girly so the Her(B) Life evolved to be a celebration of the feminine cannabis experience. It doesn't matter whether that experience is buying your first bag of bud at 36 or jumping into a new business venture in the exciting and rapidly expanding world of weed. When we work to spark the conversation around cannabis we can help make change that everyone can live with. Because we're women, we also wanted to give voice to other women who are out there getting their hustle on. We encourage blog submissions and community interaction. We believe that continued education and advocacy is what will help us all survive the shift from prohibition.

Best Marketing Campaign
Best in Cannabis Industry
7ACRES - Respect The Plant
The RESPECT THE PLANT campaign resonated with cannabis consumers in a new legal industry riddled with quality issues.

Canopy Growth
This brand has done an excellent job at getting their name known with very little social media engaged activity. They pushed Health Canada to clarify what's permitted by hosting concerts at their Smith Falls facilities, having billboards nation wide, postering nation wide, hiring long-time advocates which are known across Canada, being the first to sell legal cannabis at 12:01am on October 17, 2018 with Bruce Linton, sponsoring a charity event Kids, Cops & Computers then being placed in media glare for this and being sued by Toronto Maple Leafs. Everything they do has a purpose and it's working.
Those big buttons are a huge success! A day doesn't pass where I'm not asked about #DontTaxMedicine

Green Deed(s) Award
Best in Cannabis Industry
In the fall of 2014, we gathered a group together to talk about the challenges many people faced when trying to access the medicine they needed. At that time, a variety of limitations —regulations, product availability and quality, and a general lack of information created a gap for many people who were suffering. We knew we could do something about this and applied to Health Canada for a licence to be a producer of medical cannabis. Our founding team members had personal interests in Aqualitas’ potential: a loved one with cancer, MS, Crohn’s disease or chronic pain who had benefited from cannabis; a background in helping and advocating for vulnerable people; a desire to create a ‘green’ company committed to environmental sustainability; a passion for research and development that could expand the product’s uses from a chemistry, biology and food science basis; a wish to participate in a start-up that would create jobs in Nova Scotia.

Up Cannabis
While the Up Cannabis brand made its official debut in the summer of 2018, its story dates back to 2014, when parent company Newstrike Brands (then Newstrike Resources Inc.) was founded. Newstrike acquired its first growing facility in Brantford, Ontario and in December 2016 the facility was awarded its cultivation license by Health Canada, setting into a motion a series of events that would eventually lead to the birth of Up.
From the very beginning, in contrast to its competitors, the company chose to laser-focus its efforts on the development and marketing of premium products for the adult-use recreational market only. That vision strongly appealed to the members of Canadas iconic rock band, The Tragically Hip, long-time supporters of cannabis legalization. In February 2017 they came aboard as investors and strategic partners.

Cannabis quality naturally breaks down over time, especially if exposed to the elements when not properly sealed. The flower reacts negatively to oxygen and dries out if air is able to leak through.

The purpose of Nitrotin is to provide packaging solutions designed for product quality, consumer safety and environmental sustainability. We are taking applied science from the food industry and implementing it into the Cannabis Industry.

Jack Lloyd
Toronto cannabis lawyer Jack Lloyd looks more like a roadie for the Grateful Dead than a trial lawyer—a fact that’s helped him earn the trust of his clients, who know he’s equally at home in either world and that his brain (not his hair) is what’s on display when he represents high-profile cannabis clients like Marc Emery. With years of tutelage under revered Canadian cannabis lawyer Paul Lewin and a peer group including cannabis-law giants Kirk Tousaw and John Conroy (with whom he volunteers for NORML), Jack Lloyd is destined to become a lion in this brave new world of Canadian cannabis law, as he follows his self-professed goal of helping to “legalize cannabis through the judicial branch of the government in Canada.”

Michael Garbuz
As an articling student at Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, in 2015, Michael Garbuz helped the cannabis private-equity company CannaRoyalty — now called Origin House — launch its initial public offering. It was the start of a new obsession. “I had no idea there was so much potential in the industry,” he says. “I knew there were some medical products in Canada, but I didn’t know about the other crazy products, like patches, creams and sublinguals.” In the cannabis world, companies are so young that they need a lot of help: to build a management team, to meet with investors and to connect with corporate partners that can move their product to market. Garbuz helps companies achieve these milestones. He also warns them about potential regulatory pitfalls. He no longer works primarily as a lawyer, but his legal knowledge comes in handy. Garbuz is amazed by his career. At 28, he owns his own business and holds equity in several companies. He also recently moved in with his girlfriend, Sarah Firestone, a 3L at the University of Toronto. As he puts it: “I feel like I’m living 10 lives at once.”
