An uncanny mixture: god, alcohol and even cannabis

“On a farm in Merced, California, nuns from the Sisters of the Valley, show their devotion to healing through medicinal products made from their own marijuana crop.”

Sister Kate Meeusen founded the non-aligned religious order in 2015. While dressed in Catholic habits, the group’s spiritual practices are derived from what they call “ancient wisdom”. “We ask ourselves, ‘what would our ancient mothers do?’ when we have dilemmas or decisions to make. That’s our guiding principle,” explains Ms Meeusen. The group’s beliefs form the core of their business practices. Production follows the lunar cycle. The women pray and meditate while preparing the recipes in the abbey kitchen.
