Also, famous by the name ‘The Sisters of the Valley’, California’s self-proclaimed “weed nuns,” are on a mission to heal and empower women with their cannabis products.
These nuns, call marijuana their Holy Trinity, and use strains of marijuana with low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, to treat their patients.
They own a farm in Merced, in the Central Valley of California, where they grow and produce marijuana. They are a seven member family and believe that they do not belong to any order of the Catholic Church.
The founder of this cannabis convent is a 58-year-old Sister Kate, who initiated this sisterhood in 2014. They turn the humps and stains into balm and ointments which they say have the power to improve health and wellbeing. The weed nuns say that they make their products in a spiritual environment and prepare medications during moon cycles.
Although their practice is mostly supported, Sister Kate says that they also get a lot of hate calls.
“We’ve gotten a few hate calls but by and far the Catholics understand what we’re doing.”
“The minute they look beneath the surface and see we are dealing with cancer patients and are serious women on a serious mission, they don’t really hold any grudge against us,” she added.
The sisters’ healing business is still technically illegal as it marijuana is legalized in India but not at a federal level.
She also said that the local authorities are watching them closely and they have to spend a lot of their earnings on security.
All these sisters refer themselves as nuns because they are there to heal the sick.
