Sister Kate

Sister Kate

Sister Kate was a consultant, who helped clients open businesses in newly deregulating industries around the world. But after a divorce, and as a newly single mother with three children, she was forced to give up this career and move to Central Valley, California. While there, Sister Kate created work and leadership opportunities for women like herself. In 2009, she founded a non-profit cannabis collective and opened for business in 2010. Here, she served cannabidiol medicine to local terminal patients, so they could experience its healing effects without needing to smoke it. In 2014, Sister Kate developed a line of products that were safe, non-addictive and non-psychoactive and then founded the Sisters of the Valley. Their small farm is now a worldwide organization and is today cultivating, extracting and distributing CBD products with sales of over $1 million a year.
