Denver, Colorado – Oct. 16, 2018 /AxisWire/ Ascend Industries, LLC., a Colorado retail cannabis products manufacturing company, announces triumph at last month’s Denver-based 2018 THC Championship sponsored by HC Magazine. The premium cannabis oil company claimed notoriety within the recreational market in seven award categories, including First Place Best Overall Vape Cartridge.

“Recognized as a trusted resource for all things cannabis, HC Magazine’s THC Championship is a meaningful cannabis awards circuit that levitates category winners as the best of the best,” said Jim Biviano, Founder and Owner of Ascend Industries, LLC. “Contenders in all award categories are serious players, especially within the highly competitive concentrate product segment of the cannabis industry.”

At this year’s 7th annual event, more than 20 categories across flower, concentrates, edibles and CBD were assessed by a host of dedicated cannabis consumer judges. All categories, apart from edibles, were judged blind to remove any potential for brand biases. Category competitors were prohibited from sponsoring the competition.

Ascend Industries, LLC won the following THC Championship categories:

  • First Place Best Overall Vape Cartridge
  • Connoisseur’s Choice Vape Cartridge
  • People’s Choice Vape Cartridge
  • First Place Best Overall CBD Concentrate
  • Connoisseur’s Choice CBD Concentrate

  • Receiving the third highest overall score across all category entries

“Sweeping the most competitive and fastest growing category in cannabis has us feeling euphoric,” said Biviano. “Ascend set out to develop a vape cartridge as potent as a dab, yet with more single-strain terpene flavor than users have ever tasted before. Our hard work is recognized with this award and by being named the leader in this category.”
