Nuns Defy Marijuana Cultivation Ban in Californian Town and Grow the Plant to Heal the Sick [Video]

Two self-proclaimed nuns from the city of Merced in the state of California, have defied a ban on cultivation of Marijuana in the city, growing the plant for medical purpose.





The women, Sister Kate and Sister Darcy describe themselves as nuns. Just to be clear, they are not affiliated to the Roman Catholic Church. They are self-proclaimed spiritual nuns.
The nuns say they are on a mission to grow marijuana to heal the sick. They have named themselves “Sisters of the Valley.”
According to the sisters, the marijuana they grow has low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary mind-altering ingredient found in the marijuana plant. Sister Kate says the marijuana they grow doesn’t let users experience the ‘high’.
“It’s about honoring the people honoring the wisdom. Our products have less than 0.3% THC. Our medicine is medicine, and it is non-psychoactive. We’re dealing with what is actually hemp but really we advocate for whole plant legalization,” the self-proclaimed nun said.

RT English News reported that the nuns follow their own ‘holy trinity’. Their holy trinity includes honoring Mother Earth; honoring the people, through making medicine and healing; and their progressive activism. The nuns are said to have dedicated a portion of their week to “the good fight” for the poor people around them.
Kate said the low levels of THC in their marijuana allows them to mail their marijuana infused oils and creams all over the world. They make a good living out of their products. The nuns reveal they make up to $1,000 a day through online marketing of their product. They clarify that their business is not cash only. They work legally with banks.
