Episode 79 – Sister Kate of Sisters of the Valley – Creating CBD Products

Share

Sister Kate graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Business Education and then spent the first decade of her career working in project management in the credit card industry and the newly de-regulated telecom industry. At the age of thirty-three, she began her own consulting firm (Expert Business Solutions), and embarked on a journey that took her, as an analyst, into a specialization in newly de-regulating industries. Her consulting assignments took her as far away as Canada, England, the Netherlands and beyond, as Sister Kate helped clients open their businesses in those countries as well as in Germany, Sweden, and Denmark.

 

Sister Kate came to California after surviving a financially devastating divorce, and as a single mother of three children, found it impractical to continue her chosen career, as the amount of travel would have meant the children raised themselves. Instead, she looked to California’s most new and most interesting de-regulating market: the cannabis industry.

Sister Kate founded a non-profit cannabis collective in the Fall of 2009 and opened for business in 2010 (Caregrowers). After three years of serving local terminal patients, after developing teas and tinctures for the express reason of avoiding having the sick and dying risk torching themselves with fire and pipes, she decided to close that business and focused on developing a non-smokable product line that would reach more people. During the Harvest Moon of 2014, she developed her first line of products for the Sisters of the Valley. In January of 2015, she launched the business and the Sisters support themselves through the growing business of making and distributing CBD products.

Sister Kate has been called the “Weed Nun”, “Cannabis Nun”, and she and her order has been featured globally for their growing efforts and mission.

In light of CBD taking taken off the WADA banned list as of January 1, 2018, and at the same time current political and cultural movements on both ends, it seemed Sister Kate would be an interesting guest to talk about what CBD is and what it isn’t.

    • A huge part of summer adventures is the aftercare and recovery. Nothing is better than a soak in a cool pond in the shade after a scorching hot day in the sun.
::
Most of us think about fueling for our adventures but hot dry temps can zap me quickly of energy and depletes me. So a soak and a snack are critical!
::
Aftercare is fueling your recover with the same importance as fueling your run. @clifbar has been my favorite choice of bars for years. Yummy, organic, and the tart cherry fruit smoothie filled is my favorite of the new line! Just the right amount of sweet without too much. Fueling my body before, during, and after adventures!

    • The old saying goes... give a man a fish they will have a meal. Teach a man to fish and they will eat for the rest of their life...
🎣
I was so young when I learned to fish it’s just always been a part of my life. I sometimes take the skill for granted because it’s always been there.
🐟
Over the weekend I got to share this skill with a couple of my nephews and nieces.
🎣
One in particular is the only one in his family not into running and hiking. Reed is more into his card games Ukio (or something like that) and Pokémon and the tv series that go along with it.
🎣
A week or two before the family reunion Reed told his mom he wanted a fishing pole 🎣. His mom said try it first.
🐟
Well within minutes of his first cast he was hooked. Watching his face bring in his first trout was magical.
::
After he caught it he said “I hope I like the way it tastes!” His uncle helped him clean the fish and he ran it back down to the truck (it was a 2.5 mile hike up to the lake) cooked it up with his uncle and said “Yum” as he took his first bite.
::
The world has another fisherman and he talked about the experience the rest of the reunion. I am one proud aunt.

    • Five days of digital detox at my inlaws yearly family reunion. This year the family changed it up with a camping trip.
::
Five days in the mountains with no cell service. I didn’t take many photos but l’m a sucker for a sunrise photo with my dogs.
::
Walking away with over 25 miles of trails under my feet, a couple hours of fishing, teaching kids to fish (probably the highlight), high mountain lake swimming, and taking some alone time to do a 14 mile trail hike/run to get to see the sunrise at over 10,500 feet.
