Mother’s Day Cannabis Gift Guide

By Danyal Swan April 17, 2024
Mother's Day Cannabis Gift Guide

Mother is a verb. It's something you do. Not just who you are.

Mother's Day is a special time when we show love and appreciation to all the amazing moms out there, and we're not talking just biological or adopted moms. These incredible individuals devote their time, love, and energy to something outside themselves, and it's important to recognize and celebrate their efforts. 

While all of the above is absolutely true, it's also true that Mother's Day seems to creep up more quickly each year. If you agree and your mom is a cannamom, stop scouring the internet for the "best gifts for mom," because we have you covered with our last-minute Mother's Day Cannabis Gift Guide for the holiday, her birthday, or even as a random show of your appreciation. And if you are a cannamom yourself, think of this as a curated list of products with you in mind. But first... 

What is a CannaMom?

Cannamoms, gangja moms, or marijuana mommas are just as they sound: a mom that uses cannabis.

It's well understood that cannabis has a host of soothing properties, including, but not limited to pain relief, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, easing GI issues, preventing seizures, and more. With these perks in mind, it's not hard to see why thousands of Americans have adopted cannabis into their routine (outpacing those that identify as cigarette smokers, according to a recent poll), moms included.

A quick Google search of cannamoms will give you a host of reasons why they've explored the plant:

  • Increased patience with their children
  • Ability to focus more fully on engaging with their children (ability to let go of stresses and be present)
  • Ease aches and pains from carrying and playing with their children, carrying diaper bags, etc.
  • Overall mental health

Regardless of the reason, the anecdotal evidence of cannabis' ability to support mothers is telling. And remember - cannabis use looks different to everyone. To one cannamom, it could be a 5 mg edible to take the edge off. For another, it could be a joint before bed to ease stress, pain, or simply for "me time."

The Cannamoms Gift Guide

In states where cannabis is recreationally legal, gifting cannabis is a breeze; simply purchase, wrap, and watch your giftee enjoy! In medical markets, though, only medical cannabis patients can purchase product, and they can only purchase cannabis for themself (unless they are a caregiver) - so medical cannamoms, treat yo self. And, whether med or rec, always remember to keep cannabis out of reach of children!

Now that we've gotten the compliance details out of the way, here are our go-to products to thank and soothe any cannamom on Mother's Day, and any other day for that matter:

Avexia Lavender Bath Soak

This soak was made with maximum relaxation in mind. Infused with 100 mg THC, the Avexia Lavender Bath Soak combines cannabinoids with Epsom salt, a natural supplement used for muscle relaxation, and soothing, calming lavender extract.

A massive perk to this cannabis product is that there are no psychoactive effects produced. Because THC is fat-soluble, it has no way of penetrating your bloodstream - there's too much skin in the way. Instead, your skin benefits from the cannabinoids, providing localized pain relief that, when paired with Epsom salt, has no comparison. Trust us - you're going to want to snag two, one for you and one for mom!

Here's what others have to say about this topical:

I used it in a steam sauna and let me tell you it works. I felt like I was wrapped up in a tingling blanket of warmth and comfort that had me so relaxed I was ready for bed and was able to get some good sleep. 

- Reviewer l****d

This was one of the most relaxing baths I have ever taken! The lavender scent was so calming and the oils and salts made my skin very smooth. I would buy again for sure! 

- Reviewer j****b 

10/10 highly recommend for a relaxing evening. Whether if you’re a physically active person or just has a long week of work. 

- Reviewer g****3 

Used about a fourth with some regular epsom salt. I felt so chill and any pain was going away. I did not want to get out and I liked it so much that I threw some more in and got in a second time lol.

Flower(s)

Flowers don't have to be roses – in fact, we'd wager some cannamoms prefer they not be! Why not gift mom with a strain that is uniquely her. With the incredible differences between strains, from scent to color to flavor profile, you can find one that speaks to her personality, or, of course, gift her with a feeling you want her to feel. If you're feeling extra creative, why not whip up a canna-bouquet for her while you're at it.

Available in Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, and New Jersey for medical and recreational purchase, and in Arkansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia for medical purchase only. Shop flower now

Cannabis Accessories

No, we aren't talking pot print earrings or handbags. Cannabis has its own suite of accessories tailored to specific products or even interests! Here are a few we have our eyes on:

  • Rose wraps or cones. These unique papers and wraps are either made from rose petals themselves, or papers that have been infused with rose extract. The papers emit a soft, floral scent when burning along with your flower.
  • A centerpiece-worthy piece. Obviously, this would need to be kept out of reach of children, but smoking apparatuses can make for a standout piece of decor. We love the wave of crystal pipes in Etsy for the crystal cannamoms out there!
  • An intricate dab tool. For the macrodosing cannamoms, why not zhush up their dab setup? Dab tools come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, and more often than not, a decorative handle. Why not seek out one with her favorite animal, birthstone, or even her favorite flower encased in resin?

Happy Mother's Day to All the Moms!
