Family-owned Ocean Cannabis Co. joins Petalfast’s accelerator program to supercharge growth across the state
Irvine, Calif. (July 29, 2021) — Petalfast Inc. today announces the addition of Ocean Cannabis Co., a family-owned legacy cannabis company with a focus on quality products, good vibes and saving the world’s oceans. Petalfast, a full-spectrum sales accelerator and marketing agency for the cannabis industry, blends decades of experience in adult beverage, consumer packaged goods and cannabis to deliver sales and market-ing solutions to established and up-and-coming cannabis brands in California and beyond.
Founded in 2013 by couple Mary and Patrick Ersig, who have been working in the cannabis space in since the early 1990s, Ocean Cannabis Co. is a socially and environmentally conscious company that offers a full line of premium cannabis products including their “Discreet” vape carts, THCa diamond crystals, and live resin diamond-infused vape carts.
Today, the Ersigs, working alongside their adult children, are building Ocean Cannabis Co. into a world-class brand with the goal of making a positive difference in the world. By sourcing all product packaging from 100% reclaimed and recycled ocean plastic, each purchase of an Ocean Cannabis product recovers the equivalent of 15 straws or one water bottle’s worth of reclaimed plastic from our oceans. The Ersigs’ goal is to remove more than 10 tons of plastic from the ocean in 2021. They like to say they want to “smoke the ocean clean, one vape at a time.”
“After hearing Mary and Patrick’s story, I knew right away that Ocean Cannabis was a perfect fit for us,” said Petalfast CEO Jason Vegotsky. “They have an authentic story and great quality products at an accessible price, and their environmental focus resonates with a ton of consumers. This is an exciting brand and we look forward to the success we’ll deliver together.”
Since its founding as the first-of-its-kind full spectrum sales and marketing agency for the cannabis industry, Petalfast has built a diverse portfolio of brands, highlighting the creative product offerings available in the cannabis space while helping those brands build greater success. The accelerator portfolio approach is a key differentiator for Petalfast, significantly changing the way a cannabis brand can launch, scale, and establish itself in the market.
“We’re thrilled about what we’ve been able to do as a family-run business so far,” said Patrick Ersig. “We know that so many people care about enjoying good quality cannabis while also saving the oceans and our planet. It’s the perfect combination and Petalfast is the right choice for us to share our mission with more people across the state.”
