Described as a cannabis information and health resource, KopSun is akin to a personal consultant for the cannabis lifestyle. The new venture provides in-depth information on cannabis, its health benefits, consumer products, industry news, pertinent legal matters, and a portal for purchasing curated inventory.
Leigh-Anne Anderson, Tina Fanucchi-Frontado and Amy Marie Orozco—all Carpinterians—formed KopSun as a means to embrace the cannabis lifestyle in an educated and informed manner. They also saw KopSun as a way to leverage Carpinteria’s reputation for greenhouse-cultivated cannabis. “Powered by the cleanest available environmental practices and often coupled with generations of hand-me-down Old World agricultural experience from the Netherlands,” the three said in a press statement.
KopSun’s current focus on its “Leaf Learning” component serves two purposes. One, it is building a strong foundation of knowledgeable clients who demand top-shelf products. Two, it allows the company to sow the seeds of its commitment to the local community. Complimentary Leaf Learning sessions are open to adults, and Leaf Learning can be adapted for middle and high school students.
“We’ve been overwhelmed with the community’s acceptance and support of KopSun. There is a large interest in cannabis, and our Leaf Learning education forums have answered a lot of questions and erased so many misgivings and fears,” said Fanucchi-Frontado, KopSun CEO and founder. “Our goal is simply to provide the tools and information, so people become confident and empowered to make the smartest choice for themselves.”
Additionally, the three business partners have pooled combined talents of publicity and media to provide public relations and marketing services for a variety of cannabis-related businesses in the area.
Anderson, Fanucchi-Frontado and Orozco will be in Carpinteria’s Holiday Spirit Parade on Dec. 8, when KopSun will celebrate the town’s agricultural roots with its entry of a vintage tractor and flatbed trailer.
