The Weed Nuns Are the Build-A-Bear of Pot Religion

The Sisters of the Valley is a medical marijuana cultivator and business run completely by nuns. Founded by Sister Kate, who compares what they’re doing to Build-A-Bear, “We are like building our own religion… and we’re doing it together. We are trying to combine three things - spirituality, activism, and service to the people.” Just like sisters, the nuns pray, work, and live together while running their cannabis business in a number of departments. The Sisters’ most popular product is their CBD Salve, a multi-purpose topical that alleviates pain and promotes health, “The Salve is a topical, you put it on anywhere you’re hurting, or if you have a burn… I’ll just put a little bit on, I don’t need that much for a burn, and the next day it won’t even be there.” The Sisters have set themselves apart from other cultivators by bringing back the ancient practice of combining spirituality with cannabis.


Academy Award winning filmmaker Spike Jonze has been tapped by the upscale cannabis producer and retailer MedMen to direct a short film on cannabis history. There are few details available about Jonze's cannabis focused short film for the California-based dispensary chain. However, Jesse Williams of 'Grey's Anatomy' fame is slated to appear in the film and shooting has already begun in LA, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
