Burning question we’ve been asking for ages — why does society make the cliche of the boozy mom acceptable, but raises its brow in silent judgement when a mom’s chosen method of relaxation involves cannabis instead? Sure, current federal classifications of cannabis are part of it, but what’s the excuse in all of the states with legal cannabis use?
We honestly don’t know the answer, but we can say this — moms have a hard job, and one lousy day or recognition and gratitude every year isn’t nearly enough. So this year, treat your mom to something special. Whether that’s a massage or spa day, flowers or chocolates, or something designed to help your mom relax in a less traditional way, you know your mom is worth it. And we happen to have a few suggestions if your mom is open to trying something new.
If your mom unwinds in the evening with a treat, she may love the idea of something that will help her relax and set the stage for better sleep. Enter a decadent infused chocolate, delicious infused stroopwafel, infused fruit chew, or bedtime gummy. Our shelves are loaded with delectable edibles, and our budtenders are happy to made recommendations about the best products for your mom.
Remember to share a few best practices — your mom should follow all directions to the letter and if she’s new to cannabis, remind her to start low and go slow. Half or even quarter doses can be best at first.
Does your mom ever mention sore knees or knuckles, or maybe an aching back? A soothing balm infused with cannabis is a thoughtful gift to help her address various skin, joint or muscle issues. A little balm can be just what she needs after a hike, some gardening, or a busy day on her feet. We’ll personally recommend KYND’s Balm or the workhorse from Nordic Goddess — both work wonders!
Sublingual tinctures come in a few different varieties, and they’re a fast, discreet, precise way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis. Tinctures work well to calm headaches, general aches and pains, or even just for relaxing. A dose in a bedtime cup of tea or added to a morning smoothie can be a game changer.
A Little Reminder
It can be intimidating to try cannabis products for the first time (or the first time in a long time). If your mom is anxious or apprehensive about the idea of trying cannabis, be patient and understanding. Start by explaining the benefits of cannabis and how it might help specific symptoms or conditions. And consider suggesting a visit to MYNT for a chat with an experienced budtender — it can go a long way in alleviating all her concerns.
Either way, do what you can to make sure your mom has a great Mother's Day. You know she deserves it!
