The global cannabis market, currently valued at over $9.1 billion (as of 2020), is also helping to facilitate and accelerate poor health behaviors, leading to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, aging, and the risk of cancer.
Disrupt Magazine sat down with Lisa Tollner, co-founder and CMO of Sensi, who stresses the importance of consumers knowing which gummies are healthier to consume, taking into consideration low-sugar, Omega3, and vegan options.
“Sugar is a silent killer in today’s processed foods, contributing to a myriad of health issues,” Tollner explains. “Starting with a vegan, plant-based pectin was the first obvious choice.”
Tollner, who has spent over 30-years in global branding and new product development, launched Sensi in 2012 with her husband in an effort to help Tollner’s mother with debilitating pain from 35-years as a CCY/ICU nurse.
After two years of research, experimentation, and networking with early cannabis pioneers, Tollner and her husband took their findings and developed Sensi Chews, which now encompasses a family of nine cannabis-infused edibles. Sensi, according to Tollner, was the first edible to voluntarily lab test for potency and purity.
