Bluebird Wins #1 Hemp CBD Company of the Year!

Bluebird Botanicals was declared the #1 Hemp CBD Company at the 2016 Cannabist Awards

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.

Out of the sea of competition, Bluebird Botanicals emerged as the #1 Hemp CBD company!

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!

      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
