The Sisters of The Valley, or Sisters of CBD, came to the surface through a short news article. The Sisters were being called the “Weed Nuns” by VICE and “Sister Act-ivists” by others. They are always photographed wearing traditional habit style clothes and are completely surrounded by lush, green cannabis plants. Their grow was in danger when a proposed ban on marijuana came up and they weren’t sure they’d be able to continue providing CBD rich products to those in need.
They became media darlings overnight.
Now, for the record, they are not ACTUALLY nuns. Not really. The Sisters share their thoughts about their practice on their webpage saying:
“The Sisters of the Valley are not affiliated with any traditional earthly religion. The Sisters’ spiritual practices support the process of making medicine. We respect the breadth and depth of the gifts of Mother Earth, working to bridge the gap between Her and her suffering people.
The Sisters prepare all medicines during moon cycles, according to ancient wisdom. We are activists who are on a mission to heal the world.”
So, you know, they aren’t the typical nuns you think of, you know, the ones who live in a convent and never marry because they are married to the guy upstairs. They are more like…cool nuns…who believe the Earth provides a ton of natural resources to medicate the sick – one of which is cannabis. And also they want to make that medicine and help you get some.
If you spend some time to take a closer look into the Sisters and it is quite easy to see that they really are doing a lot of good. Their etsy store has 30 pages of mostly 5 star reviews of their products, thanking the Sisters. One happy customer reports:
“It’s everything I have dreamed of. This is the only oil I know of that is strong enough without going to the dispensaries. My pain level has dramatically decreased I’m moving around more and being more physical like I’m ten years younger. No headaches since starting this.”
