Katharine Marinaro, a second generation Californian, has always been rooted in health and wellness. Living in Malibu for 25 years and growing her own vegetables and herbs, she has always believed in leading a sustainable lifestyle. She has also been using natural products and eating organic since 1980, a time before natural food stores were on every corner. After reading “The Emperor Wears No Clothes’”, Katharine discovered the miracle of the hemp plant and was completely fascinated. She believes Mother Nature put this amazing plant on Earth for a reason. It is the only plant that can feed you, clothe you, and heal you. Katharine’s career began in the fashion world, when she attended the Fashion Institute in LA and spans over 30 years. She worked on branding for Urban Outfitters, Juicy, and French Connection, to name a few. She then designed her first line Madison Brown, which appeared in major retailers such as Barney’s New York, Neiman Marcus, and Fred Segal. In 2017, she embarked on a new journey into wellness and beauty and CBD+ Nature was created. Katharine’s mission is to provide a natural alternative to healing and redirect our natural inclination to reach for the medicine cabinet and over-the-counter products – known to severely disrupt our body’s homeostasis. Instead, CBD+ Nature reaches for Mother Nature’s pantry to create and formulate intentional products that can heal and balance your brain+body+soul.
