On Thursday, November 30, more than 700 people gathered at Toronto’s historic The Carlu to celebrate the best in Canadian cannabis. Although Lift has run the Canadian Cannabis Awards (CCAs) before, the evening was a first for the Canadian cannabis sector, representing the country’s largest cannabis gala to-date.
“We’ve been working towards this evening for quite some time now,” says Lift founder Tyler Sookochoff, “and it was satisfying to see it come together. I’m grateful to all involved - to Lift staff, to The Carlu’s event crew, to our publicity team, to our host Seth Adler and our entertainers, and most of all to the sponsors and guests who came together to prove what a dynamic and good-looking industry we are.”
Host Seth Adler led the assorted crowd of cannabis insiders and enthusiasts through the night’s events, as the occasionally rowdy crowd cheered and tweeted their support.
The whole Canadian cannabis industry is in one room tonight... it’s so good to bump into everyone. #liftCCA2017
