On the 13th of March, 2024, the prestigious International Cannabis Awards took place in Barcelona. This event has been referred to as the Oscars of the cannabis world, and for good reason. With so many coveted prizes up for grabs, Zamnesia had to get in on the action. But how well did we do? Read on to find out all about it.

Often referred to as the Oscars of the cannabis world, the 2024 International Cannabis Awards (ICA) ceremony took place in the historic La Llotja de Mar, also known as the Barcelona Stock Exchange, on the 13th of March. Here, representatives from the world's leading cannabis companies gathered from all over the globe to see if they could take home the coveted prize in their category. As you might have guessed by this point, Zamnesia was also nominated! With that said, allow us to bring you up to speed on the results of this year's ceremony.

What are the International Cannabis Awards?

What Are The International Cannabis Awards?

While we've provided an overview of what the event entails, why is it such a big deal in the cannabis industry? Born out of Northern California, and spearheaded by Dani Walton, a highly accomplished and well-respected cannabis entrepreneur, the International Cannabis Awards are all about honouring leaders and innovators in our industry. Partnering with big European companies such as Planta Sur and BBG Projects, the ceremony is one of the cannabis industry’s biggest media events, and anybody who's anybody is sure to make an appearance.

This year, the event took place in La Llotja de Mar, playing host to loads of top industry professionals and cannabis enthusiasts. Complete with its unique green carpet, main and interview stages, and included dinner and drinks, let's just say this was one cannabis party you didn't want to miss out on. The event was also live-streamed, so if you couldn't make it personally, you could still keep track of the action!

Best Online Seed Shop 2024: Zamnesia

Now, here's the big news. Not only was Zamnesia nominated for the Best Online Seed Shop of 2024, but we actually took home the prize! Winning this category feels like a huge achievement for us. It is always noteworthy when we receive a coveted award like this. As a company that strives to deliver high-quality products and customer service, this prize is the icing on the cake and validates what we do every single day. However, we couldn't have done it alone. It's our loyal customers that are truly responsible for this win, and we couldn't be more grateful. So thank you!

But as with all awards we receive, the hard work doesn't end there; it's certainly not a case of “job done”. It's great to be recognised, but it also pushes Zamnesia to continue to be the best in our field. However, that's not to say that we didn't enjoy our name being announced; there were definitely some big celebrations throughout the night as Zammi and co made the most of Barcelona and its many offerings. We'll most certainly be back to check out the International Cannabis Awards in 2025, that's for sure.
