The Idea

Cannabis Sensei started in 2020 with a simple idea. I wanted to make the wide world of cannabis easier to understand by providing accurate information and advice, whether you’re a beginner or a connoisseur.

The Beginning

It all began in high school—in 2005 to be precise—when I smoked my very first joint. Now, this is just some teenagers having some fun…however, over time cannabis has become a full-blown passion of mine. 

From tasting different strains in California, Canada, or Amsterdam, to growing it myself, it’s been more than a decade that this passion of mine has been expanding.

The Mission

I decided to create this website as a passion project first and foremost; however, with this newfound interest in the world of cannabis, it’s become imperative for me to provide the most accurate information I possibly can whether it has to do with strain reviews, growing equipment, or just news articles. 

If you have any questions about our content, you can contact us here.

My team of writers and myself have made a commitment to make sure that every piece of information here is thoroughly researched and professionally written. Nowadays, with new cannabis products popping up every day, Cannabis Sensei will help you filter through all the clutter. 

Our motto: For cannabis enthusiasts, by cannabis enthusiasts.
