Every year, Cannavist Magazine honours the best in the CBD and health and wellness industries throughout the world with a collection of 19 prestigious awards. These awards, and indeed, the Cannavist brand itself is both a tastemaker and industry expert in the CBD sphere. The appearance of eight Poko group products indicates the level of recognition these two brands are earning.


This isn’t the first time the Irish-owned CBD cosmetics firm has received recognition from experts in both the beauty and the CBD sectors. Poko Skincare is quickly acquiring a reputation for producing high-quality products that consumers enjoy implementing into their beauty and skincare routine.

The Dundalk-based firm has won numerous honours since it started out.

Key Takeaways

Two of our flagship brands are gaining industry recognition for their output, long may this continue. Not only does it reflect the fact that the Poko group’s brands are building a stellar reputation with industry peers, but it’s also an own goal in terms of branding, content marketing and new customer acquisition for the respective brands.

At present, the Poko group team is working hard to gain traction on this slew of awards with new content and social media campaigns and competitions that capitalise on this recognition. The Cannavist award winners announcement is coming up just in time for Christmas and the Poko award winners will be announced this coming February ensuring lots of exposure over the upcoming months. The messaging that both these Poko brands are widely nominated for industry awards is of course, something that will be strongly incorporated in future marketing outreach.
