CAN (ON): Nominees for cannabis award announced

Grow Up Conference and Expo has announced nominees for its first annual Grow Up Awards Gala taking place on September 12, 2019, in the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Sponsored by 3Sixty Secure Corp., the evening will celebrate the best in cultivation, science, and manufacturing, as well as highlight efforts made to further the cannabis industry.

"It's time we celebrated the talented individuals working behind the scenes to ensure the flower (and its byproducts) are all above standard," said Randy Rowe, president of Grow Up. "The Grow Up Awards Gala aims to shine a light on the great work happening locally and abroad for our industry."

The evening will be hosted by comedian and Cash Cab host, Adam Growe, and will feature a performance by illusionist Greg Frewin, followed by an induction ceremony into the Grower Hall of Fame for the "Guru of Ganja" Ed Rosenthal.

Votes are now being accepted on GrowUpAwards.com. Only those working in the cannabis industry are eligible to vote. All winners will be announced at the ceremony on September 12, 2019.
