Greenway Best of the Industry: Readers Choice 2024

Greenway Best of the Industry: Readers Choice 2024

 

Each year Greenway asks readers to submit nominations for those leaders, companies, brands, products, and businesses they have deemed to be the Best of the Industry.

The top nominees for each category are selected to be voted on by readers. Awards oversight is provided by a committee of industry and advocacy professionals who contributed in a variety of ways. A nomination or win showcases a company or individual as an industry leader in Missouri’s cannabis space.

Missouri marijuana has become a billion-plus dollar industry annually with the addition of adult use sales.

In 2023 the state saw retail sales essentially triple overnight, when at the beginning of February, with just hours notice, Missouri dispensaries began to sell recreational marijuana legally. And it didn’t slow down from there. Missouri marijuana brought in more than $1.03 billion in adult use sales alone in 2023.

As the industry has grown, categories have been added and subtracted. This year the facility design categories have been removed, while product categories have expanded to better showcase the variety and expanse of the market.

Each year thousands of ballots are submitted representing a vivid cross-section of Missouri’s cannabis industry leaders and consumers, categories now reflect excellence in business as well as in consumer services, brand appeal, marketing, production quality, and consumer satisfaction.

For the second year in a row, more than 100,000 votes were cast to determine the Best of the Industry for 2024.

Throughout next week Greenway will feature profiles and Q&As with the 2024 BOTI winners, follow along and learn about the individuals and companies driving the success and growth of cannabis in Missouri.

Now, please join us in congratulating the Best of the Industry.
