Green Queen Kristin Murr-Sloat of AlpinStash
This week we are talking with Kristin Murr-Sloat of AlpinStash. AlpinStash is a licensed Colorado-based company known for healthy and beautiful cannabis cultivated using all-natural methods. Small-batch, grown-with-love, hand-trimmed and glass-cured to perfection, AlpinStash is a leader in the craft cannabis movement.
With two years of commercial cannabis bakery experience and a desire to continue paving her way in the emerging cannabis industry, Murr joined AlpinStash, handling logistics and cultivating cannabis along with her husband and AlpinStash co-owner Danny Murr-Sloat. Over the years, the couple have brought their vision of helping people access the highest quality cannabis possible to life.
Today, Murr’s also a proud, pro-cannabis mom. Which is something we highly [no pun intended... okay maybe] support. With our own canna-mom on the team Jade, it is pro-cannabis moms like Kristin that help continue to destigmatize and push forward.
Cannabis has helped more people in my life, including myself, than I can count. I have witnessed it replacing harmful addictive substances in many people's lives as well as contributing to their weight loss, pain relief, insomnia and inflammation... to name a few. It amazes me that there is a negative stigma attached in so many places still.
What are you passionate about?
This year has been hard for everyone and focusing on what you believe in and feel passionately about is more important than ever. I feel extremely lucky to have a healthy family and close knit group of friends and support network, we are all passionate about loving and supporting one another. Equality for women, BIPOC and LGBTQ communities is at the top of my list. I’ve never understood why it’s so hard for some people to allow everyone the same rights and experiences in life. I realize I am saying this as a white woman and a person of privilege in many ways, so I can only speak to my own experiences.
What does authenticity mean to you?
It’s honesty about who you are and the ability to listen and admit when you are wrong. No one is perfect, but often people are afraid to admit that. It’s hard to listen to other’s ideas and opinions when they don't align with your own, but it’s also very important to the evolution of our thinking. This is crucial in business — we believe in taking everyones opinions and ideas into account before making big decisions.
What makes you authentic?
I’ve always been told that I have the type of personality that you either love or hate, there’s rarely a situation where I fall into the “meh” category. I think this is because I am brutally honest and blunt. You always know where you stand with me and how I feel. This is my greatest attribute and also my biggest fault (in my opinion).
What is your mission in life?
This question has so many levels and is difficult for me to answer. My first and most important mission is to live a long healthy and happy life with my husband and son. I want to continue to co-run and expand AlpinStash while using this platform to help educate and destigmatize cannabis. As a new mom
