It might be cliché, but it is worth repeating. As attributed to Augusten Burroughs—“When you have your health, you have everything. When you do not have your health, nothing else matters at all.”
While relationships, careers, family, and friends are significant, one’s own health should be our priority. Think about flying—passengers are instructed to place the oxygen mask over their own mouth before assisting anyone else. Individual health and wellness should be at the top of everyone’s list.
However, this doesn’t mean that perfect health is always achievable. People are imperfect, and many suffer from injuries, diseases, and disabilities. Thankfully there’s medicinal cannabis, including doses of THC and CBD, that help without resorting to opiates.
Medical marijuana was legalized in Nevada in 2000, but it wasn’t easily accessible until June 12, 2013, when Governor Brian Sandoval signed the laws allowing commercial distribution of medicinal cannabis. The first medical marijuana dispensary opened on July 31, 2015 in Sparks, Nevada—435 miles northwest of Las Vegas. It wasn’t very convenient for Southern Nevadans (with the largest population of the state) to make that seven-hour trip.
Fortunately, there have been dramatic changes in laws and attitudes. Legalization of cannabis is one reason Las Vegas is becoming a medical destination. including helping the hospitality industry here to boom even more. With a hospitality economy, Southern Nevada offers many ways to maximize wellness and improve health. This issue of Sensi explores those methods.
While embracing a pro-cannabis attitude, Sensi is part of the mainstream, reaching out with a collective goal of being an integral part of creating a better Southern Nevada for everyone.
As always, thank you for being part of the Sensi family. It’s an honor to share our stories and discoveries with you.
Yours in the new normal,
