Southern California is one of those places dreamers flock to. With the cool of Hollywood to the relaxed vibe extending to the very edge of San Diego, our coastlines, mountain ridges, art, diversity, food (so much food!), and open mindedness is why we all stay. As a native Angeleno, I’ve watched this gorgeous region transform over the decades. With a reinvigorated sense of energy, the heart and soul of the beautiful Southern California ideal is coming back to life. That life is visible in everything from the design to restored architecture, restaurants popping up faster than you can say “I’m hungry”, city tourism seeing a hearty surge in foot traffic, sustainability now second nature, and of course, the evolution of cannabis in our everyday lives.
Whether I am working in film or writing and editing, the stories unfolding here every second of every day are ones worth telling. That’s where I come in! I want to share intriguing stories, encourage you to explore everything there is to offer, and be a part of changing the way people view not just cannabis users, but those curious about the lesser known uses for it. In other words, this is an adventure and we’re all going on it together.
This is my very first issue as an Editor for Sensi and from the onset, it’s been exciting as well as a process of discovery. As someone with a background in lifestyle and culture, the world of cannabis is one I’m learning to appreciate. It’s a world the vast majority of us are only now beginning to truly understand and my goal is to make this “new normal” actually feel genuinely normal. That said, the pages of this July issue are about one simple thing: EXPLORATION.
Through learning about what is happening from Los Angeles to San Diego, to giving new meaning to the term “wellness,” and delving into the cultural phenomena that makes up where we live, this month I encourage you all to get curious. There are some incredible events happening all throughout this state, a healthy dose of activism, a welcomed invitation to get outside, a call to embrace one another, and of course, doing so with open minds. This is the beginning of something beautiful and I’m honored to be a part of it. So, that’s it—Hi! Lovely meeting you.
