From the very start, Sensi has been on a mission of spreading what we like to call “the new normal” in the post-prohibition age, as cannabis continues its march into the mainstream. The Better Homes & Gardens version of a cannabis mag, if you will. In the almost three years since we published our first issue, we’ve watched the old stigmas be broken, the walls come down, and people’s condemnation turned to curiosity turned in some cases to connoisseur.
No more was this more apparent to me than when I was visiting my dad in northern Florida for the holidays. In Wakulla County, which is south of Tallahassee on the Gulf, he runs a pickleball league—and if you don’t know what that is, you should head to issuu.com/sensimediagroup and read the Denver/Boulder edition from June 2018, or you can just picture a sport that I like to call “tennis for the AARP crowd.”
Most of the participants in the league are in their 60s or 70s. It’s great exercise, socialization, community building—wonderful, really. And what was even more wonderful is that my dad apparently brags to anyone who will listen that he has a daughter working in “weed”. During the three-hour league session, I was approached by a dozen of his contemporaries, one by one, each shyly and quietly whispering their questions about cannabis—especially CBD, which they’ve heard is good for all things that will ail them.
The message is getting through. The stigma is dropping, even in the most conservative parts of the country. And Sensi is very proud of whatever small part its helped play in that roll.
Sensi took home “Publication of the Year” in the 2018 Cannabis Business Awards in Colorado, and this month, the magazine is up for accolades in both the New England Cannabis Awards (Best News/Information Source and Top Cannabis Event categories) and the Las Vegas Cannabis Awards. We’re incredibly honored by the nominations, and we appreciate the support we get from our readers and our communities. Together, we will continue our march until the New Normal is just as normal as can be. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
