Sisters of the Valley: Elegant Photos of the ‘Nuns’ That Grow High-CBD Cannabis

Published on April 4, 2016 · Last updated July 28, 2020

In January, we brought you the story of the “Sisters of the Valley,” a group of self-described nuns in Merced, Calif., on a mission to produce high-CBD products for ailing patients. Sister Kate and Sister Darcey grow high-CBD cannabis plants in the garage of their shared home. Their line of products is available to patients through their website.

Professional photographers Shaughn Crawford and John DuBois visited the sisters in their Central California home to document the work they’re doing to help patients. This elegant series features the “nuns” themselves, their garden, and the processes by which they make their products: trimming, extracting, refining, and packaging. Take a look below to see some of the highlights yourself, and check out the full series on the photographers’ website.
