A group of self-ordained “cannabis nuns” in California could be the first to set up a faction in New Zealand.

The nuns are located in the Central Valley, close to the town of Merced. Not only is this destination known for being the source of more than half of the United States’ fruit, nuts, and vegetables but also, the fertile lands have been chosen by the Sisters of the Valley for cultivating and harvesting their own cannabis plants.

With their crops, from which they extract cannabis oil, the Sisters of the Valley want to heal and empower females around the world.

Since they began selling cannabis products in January 2015, they saw their highest turnover last year, at $750,000.

A little bit about the sisterhood cannabis operation

Sister Kate is not your average nun.

Aside from being one of the Sisters of the Valley in California, she is also in charge of a non-religious sisterhood cannabis operation.

At the age of 58, Sister Kate strives to launch a faction of the sisterhood in New Zealand.

“Cannabis is like honey, local is best. We don’t want our products traveling, we don’t want to burn fossil fuels to make our products,” Sister Kate said proudly.

“We know for sure that our ancient mothers and mother earth are not happy about fossil fuels being burned,” she continued.

A strain of hemp with low-THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content is grown by the sisters, who produce medicinal products using the plant, before shipping it worldwide. 

The majority of the products (which include THC-infused lotions and tinctures) sold by the cannabis sisterhood is delivered to Canada, Australia, and England.

Interestingly, the sisterhood beginnings can be traced back to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The tight-knit group of “activist sisters” are not part of any order of the Catholic church and affirm that they are working together in a world that has “run amok.”

The cannabis sisterhood are making up to $3,000 daily.

Sister Kate describes herself as a “pot-loving feminist with a white robe.”

She claims that the nuns want to lead a lifestyle just like the Beguines once did. The Beguines were pre-Christian nuns who resided in medieval Europe fortresses. 

“We believe that if we’re going to stop the damage to the planet and the people we have to reach back to ancient ways,” Sister Kate told RadioLIVE.

“We’re plant medicine women, it just happens that this is the newest deregulating business on the planet which makes it a great opportunity for women and women-owned businesses,” she said.

The sisterhood cannabis operation won’t let Trump stand in their way response to President Donald Trump’s threats to pull the plug on cannabis legalization (which has happened on more than one occasion), Sister Kate claims that Trump has “put a fire under our butts to get launched in another country.”

“Our response to Trump is Canada,” Kate went on to say.

Keen to launch an operation in Canada sometime in the near future, the group will also begin producing pot-based products in New Zealand soon.

“Women are going to start making our products in New Zealand, but instead of putting CBD, for right now they’ll put arnica,” revealed Sister Kate, who plans to send a postcard to the Government for every product sold.

Detailed on the postcards will be information pertaining to the benefits of the active cannabis compound contained in the sisterhood products – Cannabidiol (CBD) – and why it ought to be legalized.
