WeedWeek founder and Editor Alex Halperin has created the Weedy Awards and the winners will be announced on February 28 in Hollywood. Halperin said he wanted the awards to reflect his company’s desire to recognize excellence within the industry and to advance the idea that the industry should be diverse in its ownership and respectful of the environment.
The nomination process was akin to a reverse American Idol. The initial list was created through a nominating process with an all-star cannabis industry panel of judges to pick the winners. More than 500 people submitted the nominations. The judges were given the top five vote-getters from the public nominations process and they narrowed it to three finalists.
The judges include: Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor, Oaksterdam University; Jason Beck, Founder, Alternative Herbal Health; Steve DeAngelo, Founder, Harborside; Brad Bogus, VP, Confident Cannabis; Amber E. Senter, Founder, SuperNova Women; Bryant Mitchell, Founder, Blaqstar; Ophelia Chong, Co-Founder, Green Sky Strategy; Josh “Rocco” Loebl, Executive VP, Henry’s Original and Alicia Rose, Founder, Herba Buena.
