On Sunday, September 10, 2017, the most elite and influential people in the cannabis industry joined at The Majestic in Downtown Los Angeles to celebrate the inaugural DOPE Industry Awards, presented by Pearl 2o. DOPE Magazine brought this illustrious event to the golden coast, and it’s safe to say the cannabis event sphere won’t ever be the same. The elevated black-tie affair, hosted by Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, featured an impressively well-dressed crowd, live music from house band Philly K., complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a celebration of Southern California’s biggest stars!
The presenters were a veritable who’s who of SoCal Cannabis, as well as stars from DOPE’s latest issues, including the Seventh Letter’s Chaz Bojórquez, Saber and G1. Winners took home custom crystal trophies fit for the likes of major industry taste makers. Attendees received curated gift bags featuring cannabis swag and goodies, generously donated by supporting sponsors THC Design, Canndescent, Root Sciences, FlavRx, Third Eye Agency, Hollyweed North and personal-sized bottles of presenting sponsor Pearl 2o’s one-of-a-kind liquid emulsion—just to name a few items! An event to remember, the SoCal DOPE Industry Awards set the tone for the future of cannabis events in Southern California.
