Carpinteria-based Kop Sun LLC will present the company’s free monthly “Leaf Learning” session from 5 to 6 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Carpinteria Woman’s Club, 1059 Vallecito Road.
The session will include a panel of industry experts such as Dr. Margaret Peterson, Dr. Connie McLaughlin-Miley , Liz Rogan and Autumn Shelton.
The 60-minute presentation is a guide to the health and well-being applications of cannabis, Kop sun officials said. It will teach how and why cannabis works, the conditions and illnesses it helps remedy, along with dosing and legalities.
Also to be discussed will be the difference between hemp and marijuana, the endocannabinoid system, how CBD and THC differ, dosing options and methods.
Kop Sun founder Tina Fanucchi-Frontado is one of the women at the forefront of the cannabis movement in California. She is described as an unyielding proponent of cannabis.
Fanucchi-Frontado lost her brother to AIDS in 1994, her mother to cancer in 2006 and her father in 2016. She was a lead caregiver in all three cases.
When her father’s sleep and anti-anxiety medications were making him miserable, she started dosing him with medical marijuana edibles. She said relief came without all the sickening side effects of the pharmaceuticals.
