The Sisters of the Valley are not nuns in the true sense of the word. They have no real religious affiliations, but they do follow monastic traditions. This means that they do not get married, they refer to each other as sister, etc.
For those who don’t know, there are two basic chemicals in cannabis that have an effect, CBD and THC. THC is what causes the typical “high” that everyone associates with smoking marijuana. The other, CBD, does not have as many psychoactive side effects. It however does show great promise as far as chronic pain relief goes.
These sisters sell tinctures, oils, and salves. They are based in Merced, Ca. and they grow everything themselves.
The following is straight from their homepage:
“The Sisters sustain their farm operations and their compassionate activism by making products for the people in a spiritual environment. They respect the breadth and depth of the gifts of Mother Earth and work hard to bridge the gap between her and her suffering people.
The Sisters prepare all of their products during moon cycles, inspired by ancient wisdom. They are activists on a mission to empower people to heal themselves.”
