Sisters of the Valley is a medical cannabis company in California’s Central Valley that is completely run by nuns. The founder, Sister Kate, created the company to erase the negative stigma surrounding the plant and to provide jobs for women who believe in marijuana’s healing powers. In 2016, the Sisters earned roughly $750,000 in sales, but they haven’t been profitable since a lot of their money is currently tied up in credit card processing and banking. The sisters’ livelihood is also constantly being threatened by local and federal governments, so they’re currently in the process of purchasing a foreclosed home in Merced County.
