It would seem that marijuana and nuns, by definition, cannot have anything in common. But not in California. The Valley Sisters have their own small medical cannabis business, which, unlike prayers, saves not the soul, but the body.
For those who are indignant and outraged, it will be useful to know that there are at least two active elements in marijuana - tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the psychotropic effect, and cannabidiol (CBD), which is responsible for the relaxed state of a person. Each strain of cannabis has a different ratio of THC to CBD, and if the first is significantly higher, this strain is considered a recreational, that is, essentially a fun drug.
"Sisters of the Valley"(The Sisters of the Valley) grows the second type of cannabis, which is dominated by CBD. These varieties of marijuana do not bring euphoria, but they make life much easier for a person suffering from various diseases. For example, medical marijuana relieves chronic pain (in the back or joints), migraines, significantly reduce the number of epileptic seizures, help people suffering from arthritis, and even help people diagnosed with cancer.
The nuns themselves say that their product is completely natural, and unlike pharmaceuticals, it has no side effects on the body. Of course, not everyone agrees with this point of view. In California, such a business is legal, and the sisters themselves received all the necessary licenses. However, the municipality of the town in which they are located sees a threat to the public. "There is no place for marijuana in our city!" - says the mayor. "While it's legal, we don't want to see cannabis plants next to our kids."
In fact, the "hemp hemp" is a modest three-room house on the outskirts of the city near the railway station. There, Sister Kate and Sister Darcy fiddle with cannabis pots every day. After the "spikelets" are ripe, the sisters make an essence of them, which is then added to ointments, creams, edible products, and drinks.
In fact, the nuns, of course, are not real. The idea for such an image came to Kate after the absurd local law was approved, according to which pizza was a vegetable. "Well, if pizza is a vegetable, then I'm a nun," the girl decided. This is how the idea of today's business was born, which, although it is not a problem-free, but, as everyone who is involved in it is sure, has a great future.
In the Netherlands, not only medical marijuana is allowed, but also recreational marijuana, which is considered a "soft drug." It is not surprising that it is in this country that the Marijuana Festival is held annually, within the framework of which Cannabis cup… I must say that not all visitors live in consciousness until the end of the festival, however, not all the judges of the cup either.
