Editors Note: Last week, on an unseasonably warm December evening, Sensi magazine took home top honors in the Publication of the Year category of the 2017 Cannabis Business Awards. As our team took the stage in Seawell Ballroom in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, I looked around the room in awe: a sea of newly minted entrepreneurs, leaders from across all spectrums of this industry, from activists and advocates to dispensary owners and MVPs, all decked out and dapper. Just 10 years ago, most of the people in the room would have been considered fugitives from the law just for operating the successful businesses they are today. It’s a whole new world we live in, and our future is looking pretty bright right now.

For the first issue in 2018, we decided to focus on the future, in part because of the “New Year, New You” mentality that’s so prevalent this time of year, but also because this month marks California’s march into the cannabis-is-legal-for-adult- use future. With this milestone moment in mind, Senior Editor Leland Rucker dives into the future of “high tech,” pun intentional.

Our dining editor, in his newly rebranded TasteBuds column, looks at the future of dining trends in the US and also sits down with a man best described as a futuristic Willie Wonka for his profile of the Inventing Room proprietors. Robyn Griggs Lawrence looks into the complicated, forward-thinking world of terpenes, and Ricardo Baca offers some hypotheticals about what cannabis use will look like in the coming years. 

If you’re in a resolution-making mindset right now, you’re not alone. The beginning of a year is a time to start afresh, to seek ways to improve oneself. Last year, Sensi dove into the many ways cannabis could help jumpstart your healthy lifestyle choices in a special report titled “New Year, New You.” Check it out in our archives if you’re so inclined. It’s got some great info about our favorite plant’s motivating powers. 

If you’re in Southern California this year, keep an eye out for local editions of Sensi, which expands its reach with three new markets in the Golden State this month. Join me in welcoming Sensi Los Angeles, Sensi Orange County, and Sensi San Diego to the family of publications that includes Sensi Denver/Boulder and Sensi Southern Colorado. We’re bringing our message about “The New Normal” to more markets around the country this year, and we’re pretty excited about what the future has in store. Buckle up, dive in, and come along with us.
