January 22, 2016, Denver, CO—The Industrial Hemp Research Foundation has elected Ron Kolb, founder and CEO of Sensi Media Group, to its Board of Directors. Ron brings almost twenty years of experience in media, strategic growth, and leadership. Most recently, he founded Sensi Media Group, publisher of Sensi Magazine. Sensi is a lifestyle publication with a pro-cannabis approach and two specific goals: to chronicle the new normal and to shift the culture.

David Bush, president of the Industrial Hemp Research Foundation, made the announcement this week. He said: “The Industrial Hemp Research Foundation is very pleased to form strategic partnerships with the business community. We are excited to have access to the skills, knowledge, and business-savvy of the Sensi Media team to bring our public outreach to the next level.” 

Of his appointment to the board, Ron Kolb said: “Partnering with the Industrial Hemp Research Foundation is great for Sensi. It provides an opportunity for us to tell the full story surrounding cannabis. The IHRF team is doing great work with state universities, driving research in several exciting areas. Our readers will have a firsthand look at the impact hemp is making on their local economies.”


Sensi Media Group is the publisher of Sensi Magazine, a new cannabis lifestyle magazine with a fresh approach and two specific goals: to chronicle the new normal and to shift the culture. The first magazine will launch in the Denver/Boulder market in April 2016. Prior to Sensi, founder Ron Kolb helped build Best Version Media, the fastest-growing privately held media company in America. The Sensi team is built around definitive leaders in every category of media, including the former editor of the Robb Report and a New York Times best-selling author; the former editorial director of Haute Living New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco; the founding editor of Boulder Weekly; multiple magazine-of-the-year award winners, and other award-winning talent.


The Industrial Hemp Research Foundation is dedicated to supporting industrial hemp research at institutions of higher education in Colorado.  Our efforts will raise public awareness of the many known and potential applications of industrial hemp.  We aim to improve knowledge about industrial hemp and the creation of new technologies and products, promote economic development, improve living standards, safeguard the environment and enhance the quality of life for all people.
