The Sisters of the Valley have developed a market for remedies made with Marijuana, but now they are facing a shut-down after Etsy withdrew their shop from online.
The Sisters of the Valley are a sisterhood based in Merced, California who are not Catholic nor are they religious in any traditional sense, yet they consider themselves nuns.
Sister Kate, aka Christine Meeusen, and Sister Darcy, aka Darcy Johnson - do not pretend to have not profited from the enterprise.
"We had a dream of living a simple life, making our medicines on a quiet farm, in a spiritual environment, and being self-sustaining," they explain on a GoFundMe site set up to raise funds to help save their business.
"We worked toward that goal and just as the New Year began, we had a steady income from the store sales and a farmette to occupy."
An additional threat comes from the California municipalities considering a cultivation ban that would make the nun's business illegal.
"We make CBD oil, which takes away seizures and a million other things," Sister Kate told ABC.
"It's very high in demand from cancer patients right now. And we make a salve that's a multi-purpose salve, but we found out it cures migraines, hangovers, earaches, toothaches and diaper rash."
