Holy Smoke: Cannabis Growing ‘Nuns’ Defy Law In California

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community
Two weed growing nuns from California have defied cannabis cultivation and commerce laws and continue to grow their own plants for medical resale.

The Sisters of the Valley say that their herbs heal and state laws do not apply to them.

The two nuns make non-psychedelic potent cannabis oil and tincture that heals the body and settles the mind (after the body is settled).

Cannabinoids go to work augmenting the body’ main systems, especially the immune system, taking a huge burden off the mind.

Cannabis RT reports:

Despite a ban on cannabis cultivation in the town of Mercad, the Sisters of the Valley ‘nuns’ continue to grow their plants.

This ban does not apply to us and so we’ve been operating straight through it,” they told RT.

Sister Darcey and Sister Kate have been growing marijuana and creating cannabidiol (CBD)-infused products for three years.

They claim their marijuana has low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which gives the ‘high’ effect associated with marijuana.

Our medicine is medicine, and it is non-psychoactive,” they explained. “We’re dealing with what is actually hemp but really we advocate for whole plant legalization.


However, the ‘nuns’ are not the traditionally religious kind but rather ‘spiritual’.

They follow their own ‘holy trinity’ which includes honoring mother earth, honoring the people through making medicine and healing, and their progressive activism.

The nuns dedicate a portion of their week to “the good fight” for the poor people around them.


CannabisThe Sisters of the Valley’s CBD salve was designed to provide arthritis pain relief, but users report it prevents migraines, toothaches and earaches.

The sisters say a prayer over each bottle before it is sent to customers, but the holy salve doesn’t come cheap, at $95 for eight ounces, and the CBD oil costs $85 for two ounces.Cannabis

Sister Kate told ABC that she makes about $1,000 a day, but that she works legally with banks.Cannabis

In states where medical marijuana is legal, there has been a 25 percent drop in painkiller related deaths, according to a 2015 study by University of Pennsylvania and John Hopkins researchers in JAMA Internal Medicine journal.Cannabis
