That wiki page is wrong. The Bene Gesserit didn't use Water of Life; they mainly used something called "the Truthsayer drug". They didn't use spice at all until relatively recently at the time of the start of Dune, and their use of it is still at that point not widely known.
In the confrontation scene at the end of the book, Paul says:
"There are other poisons the Reverend Mothers can use for their tricks, but once they've used the spice liquor, the others no longer work."
The glossary at the end of the book only says this for Reverend Mother:
REVEREND MOTHER: originally, a proctor of the Bene Gesserit, one who has transformed an "illuminating poison" within her body, raising herself to a higher state of awareness. Title adopted by Fremen for their own religious leaders who accomplished a similar "illumination".
The Fremen RMs copied the Bene Gesserit ritual, using their own poison, Water of Life. The BG didn't use the spice originally, but adopted because of its greater power.
(Also note that it's repeatedly described as impossible to breed sandworms off-planet; the secret is only discovered at the end of Heretics of Dune.)
