The spiritual Sisters of the Valley grow medical marijuana in California. They use it to make lotions, tinctures and other products. Although they wear habits and modern clothing, the sisters have no official connection to the Catholic Church.
Photographer Shaughn Crawford said the art in the sisters' house was a fascinating mix of Catholic items and tchotchkes that hint at cannabis culture.
The sisters grow potent varieties of medical marijuana they say are rich in cannabidiols, the chemicals thought to reduce nausea, suppress seizures, lower inflammation and help with anxiety and depression.
