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.

Growing up in the northeastern US apples are a huge thing. Not so much in Utah. So happy we were apple to plant this McIntosh tree in our yard. Although, I still dream of Cortlands but they don’t grow around here so happy to have what I have and our McIntosh tree is in full bloom!

    • What better way to spend #earthday2018 than working with “weeds” in our backyard?
::
Creating tinctures, infusions, chips, and more.
::
Weed is an interesting word. In reality a plant is just a plant. However, we add labels to plants. Yet, I am finding many of the “weeds” in the backyard are the most potent healing plants and packed with vitamins and minerals.
::
Working with nettle and purple deadnettle today.

    • Perspective is key. Have you ever thought about how you would experience the world from another’s point of view?
::
I watched the most massive worm make it’s way across the garden the other day and wondered...
:
What is the world like from the worm’s point of view?
:
I have spent a bunch of time in conversations lately being asked about my stances on several issues.
::
I find myself telling people - the answer is nuanced. As there often isn’t a black or white answer. As our culture continues to change, so do many beliefs. But that’s a humanist view.
::
What if we started to try to look at the world from another species point of view? How would our opinions change?

    • Sights around the yard as spring is starting to pop. My mom once told me late season snow actually helps add nitrogen to the plants. Not sure if it’s true but I can say after the on and off snow the last two weeks everything looks great and super green around the yard.
::
Just call it springtime magic or magick 😌
