Curaleaf, a leading international provider of consumer products in cannabis, has been named on the second annual TIME100 Most Influential Companies list – an extension of the annual TIME100 list of the world’s most influential people – that highlights 100 companies making an extraordinary impact around the world.
To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations from every sector – ranging from health care and entertainment to transportation and technology – from its editors and correspondents around the world, as well as from industry experts. TIME editors then evaluated each one on key factors including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership and success.
Curaleaf’s inclusion on the TIME100 Most Influential Companies list is an acknowledgment of the Company’s vision to advance the cannabis industry and lead the world in cannabis education, accessibility, and customer satisfaction with high-quality products backed by science. The award comes at an inflection point for the industry as proposed cannabis legislation reform once again makes its way through Washington this week, and states like New York and New Jersey move toward opening the adult use market as a result of voter demand.
“Being recognized as one of the world’s most influential companies by TIME is further confirmation that our work is breaking down the stigma of the plant, building an equitable and exciting industry, launching innovative new products for a wide consumer base and tangibly supporting the communities that we serve,” said Joe Bayern, CEO of Curaleaf US. “We are humbled and honored to be included alongside change-making companies that are revolutionizing their industries as well. As the only cannabis company included on this list, we hold a unique responsibility in shaping and leading our industry for continued success in the future.”
