Originally from Germany, then lived in Paris for 15 years before finally setting roots in New York. She had a successful career in marketing and advertising before becoming an artisanal jam maker.
Katharina developed neuropathy, sometimes called peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord (called peripheral nerves) or from a malfunctioning nervous system.
Neuropathy often causes weakness, pain, and numbness– usually in your hands and feet but it can affect other areas of your body. It can also manifest as a burning, stabbing, or electric shock sensation.
Katharina’s neuropathy affects her hands, neck, and can affect other areas of her body. Her chronic condition forced her to experience persistent pain on a daily basis.
She tried many ways to ease her neuropathic pain. Eventually, she worked with her doctor and settled on a combination of prescription medicine and CBD therapy to reduce pain and discomfort.
Katharina grew up in rural Germany. Her family had a sprawling country garden. Her fondest memories are picking vine-ripened berries with her family. Her grandmother and mother turned the freshly picked berries into jams and jellies.
It’s no surprise that after a successful career in marketing and advertising, she started her own jam-making company. Katharina is the owner of K’s European Jam, LLC – an artisanal line of preserves she makes in Bronx, New York.
Growing up in a garden and being close to nature, it’s also no surprise that she sought natural remedies to accompany her wellness transformation.
Katharina uses a variety of methods in her CBD therapy routine. I am honored to help her along her journey.
“I use the CBD Ginger Tincture in the morning with my coffee to get the days started relaxed and symptom-free,” she says.
In the evenings, she uses Extra Strength CBD Pain Cream by massaging it into her hands and neck.
“I also couldn’t live without Jenny’s pain cream which I use on my painful hands and tense neck.“

“The CBD coconut oil is in my bathroom– I slather it all over my body, as a natural solution for dry skin,” says Katharina. She incorporates a CBD bath bomb as part of her self-care routine– her “in-home spa moment”.
We should all take a cue from Katharina and incorporate more self-care moments– especially during these difficult times.
She reports her CBD therapy routine helps her in many aspects of her life, including exercise, concentration, relaxation, and pain relief.
“Jenny’s products take my pain away, make me feel relaxed, and help me enjoy life. It’s that simple.”
Katharina is sort-of a CBD therapy advocate now.
“There are so many reasons why CBD can help, and I am trying to pass that knowledge on to anyone I know.” – Katharina W.
Katharina lives in Harlem with her husband. Their daughter is a sophomore in college residing in Washington, D.C.
When she’s not turning out perfect jams and preserves, you’ll catch her baking or concocting chocolate creations. She is always deep-diving into new ingredient combinations and new flavor profiles.
Thank you, Katharina, for sharing your story with the Jenny’s Loves Me Community!
In hemp and happiness,
