Santa Barbara-based cannabis information source SBVerde has released a new video on the impact of the pandemic on the industry, Black Lives Matter and how the community has shown support and help.
“Our video also prominently features some well-known local cannabis entrepreneurs, including Graham Farrar, Autumn Shelton (and family), as well as Sara Rotman,” SBVerde officials said.

Meanwhile, another South Coast cannabis information resource, KopSun, has decided to cease operation, according to one of its top officials, Tina Frontado, who has worked with the organization for the past four years.
“Due to current times and after much consideration, we have decided to bring our work with KopSun to a close,” Frontado wrote. “It has been a distinct privilege to help change the culture and conversation around cannabis in our local community and beyond.”
For almost four years, KopSun has shed light on cannabis through online and in-person education. “Together, we have helped to normalize cannabis as medicine and put it on the map in Santa Barbara County, which has resulted in thousands of supporters and followers to our platforms,” Frontado said.
“There is still much work to be done to champion the benefits of cannabis and share valuable knowledge about its responsible use,” she said.
KopSun’s magazine, “Cannabis by the Sea,” still will be published under the leadership of Bie & Bie Productions. KopSun partner Amy Orozco will serve as editor.
“Our online platforms along with our emails at kopsun.com will remain live for the next 12 months, but our classes will no longer be offered,” Frontado said.
