Sisters? Yeah, but expand your mind here. Yes they call each other sister. They wear habits. But some habits aren’t what you would expect. Based in Northern California, these women are running a business that promotes the healing aspects of CBD.
Owner, Sister Kate is a former consultant and single mother of three. In 2009, she founded a non-profit Cannabis collective. Terminal patients had access to plant-based medicine and teas she developed. In 2014, she launched the first line of products for Sisters of the Valley. Their website offers an extensive selection of products. The work from planting to getting ready for retail sales is based on the cycles of the moon.
Sisters and CBD
CBD is typically used for alleviating chronic pain. I absolutely can identify with the aches and pains that come from inflammation. From ankles to fingers, it’s not fun. CBD oils have been a great help. Many also report relief from insomnia, anxiety and depression when using CBD products. The sisters have found a way to help others and win in the emerging cannabis market.
On the Sister’s website, you can buy CBD infused salves, oils, capsules, teas and soaps. They recently launched a mushroom product. Suggested as a coffee alternative, the 17 ingredient powder, also claims to assist with mood stabilization. In 2019, sales hit 1.2 million.
Not affiliated with a church but they believe in living in community, living spiritually and being women about their business. They say it is a nod to the Beguines. Beguines, began in the Middle Ages. They were women that lived, worked and prayed together as sisters. It sounds like they may have been the really early version of Girl Boss or Boss Lady as they lived successfully independent from any male influence or interruption.
