These Nuns Grow Weed To Heal The World

The “Sisters of the Valley” send out only organic products and no chemical alteration is done to any of the weed. Each jar that is sent out to a customer is prayed on before sending.

Marijuana sent out from their facility is used for back pain, migraines, and even some hangovers. However, the state of California is trying to make their enterprise illegal.

This new ban that the state is trying to pass won’t likely affect the “nuns” at all though. For one, God is on their side. Plus, the nuns plan to fight the ban with everything they have in them.
