Unless you grew up in Jamaica or on a commune, it may not have occurred to you to include cannabis on the list of “things to get mom for Mother’s Day.”
But it seems that roses aren’t the only popular flower for Mother’s Day. In case you couldn’t decode that, we’re talking about marijuana.
In fact, according to a data analytics service provider for the cannabis industry, last year’s marijuana sales on Mothers Day weekend were higher than average weekend sales.
Yep. A lot of folks opted to celebrate Mother’s Day with cannabis gifts last year.
Why Not Celebrate Mother’s Day with Cannabis Gifts?
Of course, the increased sales on that particular weekend may have been due in small part to the fact that not everybody is excited to spend an entire Sunday with their mother. And cannabis helps soften that blow.
We get it.
Still, as the cannabis culture continues to expand and gain acceptance, more and more people – mothers included – are embracing the many health benefits of all things cannabis.
So if you live in a state where recreational marijuana is now legal, you have the option to share the love with your mom.
Whether she’s a newbie, a hardcore card-carrying weed lover, or somewhere in between, we’ve got a few gift-giving ideas to get you started.
1. Build a Spa Package
High (no pun intended) on the list of top sellers last year were personal care products.
This includes things like CBD and THC infused bath salts, soaks and scrubs. And sales for infused topicals on Mothers Day weekend last year? Triple its typical market share.
Personal care products and topicals are ideal for everyone. Partially because they’re particularly “unscary” for those new to the cannabis experience.
You could, for example, build your own topicals spa package for your mom. Toss in some bath salts, a nice soak and an infused topical cream that will help ease some of the aches and pains of everyday life.
Throw in a massage and you can give her the complete package.
2. Make Her Cannabis-Infused Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
If your mom is a little more experienced in the cannabis arena, then nothing says Mother’s Day like chocolate-covered strawberries.
Cannabis-infused, that is. Here’s a pretty simple recipe for cannabis-infused chocolate-covered strawberries:
What You’ll Need:
1 tablespoon canna-coconut oil
3/4 cup chocolate chips
6 strawberries with stems
What You Do:
- In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, stir together the chocolate chips and coconut oil.
- Microwave on high for 30 seconds, then remove and stir.
- Continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second intervals until the mixture is melted and smooth. Let it sit until it reaches room temperature.
- Dip the berries into the melted mixture and set them on parchment paper. Let stand at least 30 minutes.
Please note that eating just one strawberry will count as a light dose of medicine.
So if your mom is new to edibles, it’s REALLY IMPORTANT that she wait 30-60 minutes after consuming just one special strawberry so that she can effectively measure the effects.
3. Teach Her to Make Her Own Edibles
If your mom is already showing interest in edibles, give her the chance to dabble in the cannabis culinary arts.
There are a wealth of great cookbooks that contain recipes for everything from basic cannabutter to infused sauces, cookies and brownies.
Of course, some cookbooks are more complicated than others. So depending on your mother’s experience with cannabis – and with the kitchen – pick accordingly.
4. Get Her a Convection Vaporizer
If your mom is already a cannabis connoisseur, consider getting her some quality marijuana and then splurging on a portable convection vaporizer for her.
The benefit of this sort of vaporizer is that it uses convection heat to activate the cannabinoids – rather than scorching or charring cannabis on a hot plate as is done in conductive heating.
When vaping this way, it means your mom won’t be inhaling anything other than pure, activated marijuana vapor.
And since it’s considered one of the healthiest products on the market, maybe she’ll even let you borrow it sometime.
