Motherhood is a challenge no matter how you slice it, but when you add the cannabis plant and the pandemic to the mix....well, you've unleashed a whole new set of challenges wrought with stigmas, misleading propaganda and a serious lack of research. Emerald chats with three of the industry's leading CannaMoms to learn more about their journeys and how they're supporting one another during this dynamic time. Jessica, Loriel and Kristin will explore issues surrounding social equity, balancing parenthood with entrepreneurship, and more, as well as share valuable advice on how to emerge in this budding space.

Loriel Alegrete, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder at 40 Tons
Loriel Alegrete is Chief Executive Officer at 40 Tons, a Black, woman-owned premium cannabis, clothing, and accessories brand from Los Angeles, California. Loriel oversees macro strategy and strategic partnerships between other brands and advocacy groups and organizations. Representing those impacted by the system — cannabis prisoners, victims of the war on drugs, their families and loved ones — while a booming billion dollar industry flourishes across the globe, 40 Tons was founded by the very legacy operators who’ve helped build the cannabis industry during the course of battle. Loriel stands for the strong women of the world powering through the challenges of loved ones behind bars due to cannabis. In her teens, Loriel’s brother was arrested for being an accessory to murder, leaving her to help care for the family and support her brother in prison through his sentence. Later, drawing from a background in organizational leadership and marketing, Loriel helped champion the formation of 40 Tons after enduring her husband Anthony Alegrete’s multiple incarcerations, including a sentence along with lifelong friend Corvain Cooper. With fewer strikes against him, Anthony’s sentence was less harsh than Corvain’s, who received life without parole. Upon Anthony’s release, as cannabis laws began to relax across the U.S., Loriel and Anthony began their advocacy efforts to free Corvain. Eventually, this led to Corvain’s release through a grant of executive clemency from Donald Trump in his final days as President of The United States of America in 2021. It took the hard work of many individuals and organizations, including the entire 40 Tons team, to help break Corvain free. Loriel holds a degree from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, in Los Angeles, California, and is the co-founder of Jump For Joy, a community outreach for children facing obesity in Las Vegas. Loriel has worked to support the Jewish Holocaust population, and also to help feed the homeless. In addition to running 40 Tons, Loriel is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in nursing and is an advisor to Marijuana Matters. Just because someone carries it well, doesn’t mean it isn’t heavy.

Kristin Murr-Sloat, Co-owner at AlpinStash
Kristin Murr-Sloat was born and raised in Colorado where she grew up playing hockey. After sustaining a back injury, she began the typical regimen of OTC and pharmaceutical pain remedies. It wasn’t until Murr tried cannabis that she noticed immediate relief. 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. 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.
