CannaBIZ Connection and Sensi Media Group Partner to Launch “Sensi Connects”

National Cannabis Business Platform Expands to Florida and Pennsylvania Cannabis Communities


GRAND HAVEN, Mich., June 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensi Media Group LLC, a leading pro-cannabis media company with lifestyle magazines in 15 markets coast to coast, and CannaBIZ Connection, a Michigan-based cannabis networking platform announced a partnership and the launch of Sensi Connects is an online community where business owners can connect and build relationships with other entrepreneurs and service providers in the cannabis industry nationwide. For now Michigan, Florida and Pennsylvania are the focus of the merger. Other states to be added in the near future.

“I am excited about this partnership and the opportunities it will bring to the businesses in the markets where we are expanding. I have had the honor of working closely with Sensi Media Group for the last 18 months and launched Sensi Magazine in Michigan in 2019. Together, we are going to help connect the industry nationally, in a state by state ongoing effort that will follow legalization wherever it happens,” said Jamie Cooper, Sensi Connects Managing Director.

The purpose of the partnership is to build communities around cannabis and cannabis businesses nationally—something that both Sensi and CannaBIZ Connection believe can be done through integrating the publication and the platform and hosting events that continue to bring the industry and its supporters together. With eleven states adopting adult-use cannabis and 35 with medical-only, the market for a business connection platform continues to grow.

“Jamie and the team have created a community that connects owners in a way that solves business challenges. Sensi is all about bringing would-be consumers and non-consumers together. We are thrilled to bring this platform into our Sensi ecosystem and pumped for the value we will be able to create for cannabis owners all around the country,” said Ron Kolb, Founder of Sensi Magazine.
