The nominations for the Malta Medical Cannabis Awards are open until 24 October for businesses that are “making waves in key areas of the medical cannabis” supply chain, according to a press release sent to Business Malta. The awards will be distributed during the Malta Medical Cannabiz World Summit on 3 November at the InterContinental Hotel in St Julian’s.
The eleven categories of the awards include “Producer of the Year”, “Distributor of the Year” and “Non-profit of the Year”. Some 20 experts from the medical cannabis industry will assess the nominations and select three finalists for each category. Another nine judges will pick the winners out of the shortlisted top three.
Furthermore, the ceremony is combined with a charity dinner hosted by SiGMA Group, the organiser of the Malta Medical Cannabiz Summit. The fund-raiser will auction a selection of artworks with all proceeds going to the SiGMA Foundation and SavingSophie.org, which is a medical cannabis-related charity supporting care treatment for Sophie Ryan and other young cancer sufferers who can benefit from medical cannabis treatments.
