Let’s face it; flowers and cards are for last year’s moms. As more and more states roll out their own regulated cannabis markets, you no longer have to rely on traditional Mother’s Day gifts to honor the woman who brought you into this world.
If you’ve got a cool mom who loves cannabis (and yes, that does make her cool), here are some gift ideas that go above and beyond Hallmark sentiments.
Get a CBD Massage in Colorado
Moms have it harder than most of us, and not just because they’re overworked while trying to raise their young children. Oh no, today’s moms are also overworked raising adult children who can’t seem to find their independence.
What your overworked mom really needs is to be whisked away to Colorado for a true “Rocky Mountain High.” Cannabis-infused massage therapy is big business these days, and you’ll find plenty of spa treatments that will help your mom forget her troubles this Mother’s Day. Plus, the CBD oils and lotions used in these treatments are designed to relieve pain and stress, rather than get you high. It’s important that mom knows that ahead of time, so she can’t accuse you of withholding the facts like you did when it came to your report cards and relationships.
Bring Home a Gift Basket of Spa Essentials
Colorado a little too far for mom to travel? No worries, you can bring the best of CBD-infused massage therapy home in a gift basket. Start with the body and skincare essentials from California’s own Humble Flower Co. The brainchild of founder and CEO Thea Wayne, Humble Flower Co. is a high-end natural skin care startup that just happens to produce some of the finest spa-quality oils and lotions that hydrate the skin while providing topical relief from pain, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, and other ailments. Humble’s Essentials Collection of 200MG CBD Soothing Lotion, Body & Face Oil, and Relief Balm would put a smile on mom’s face, and you can even throw in a cannabis bath bomb to round out the basket.
Pick a Discreet, Yet Stylish Vape Pen
The mom that loves to accessorize prefers a vape pen that looks good without attracting too much attention. The Beboe lineup of vape pens does the trick here. Products such as the Beboe Besties — billed as “part candy, part vape, and cute AF” – are the perfect treat for mom to enjoy at brunch or the spa. Even better, if mom lives in California you can have it delivered straight to her door.
Something for the Sweet Tooth
A heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Check. A creamy chocolate egg for Easter? Check. Mom is used to enjoying sweets on special occasions, so why should this day be any different? World Cannabis Cup favorite Altai Brands serves up a perfectly balanced confection in its 10mg Dulce De Leche Bon Bons and Sea Salt Caramel Bon Bons. The California cannabis brand – co-founded by hospitality veteran Rob Weakley — is also famous for its bite-sized 10mg chocolate coins, which you can slip into mom’s change purse. And if you want to say “Thank you” for all the times mom made you cookies, you can treat her to The Original Pot Co. line of cannabis-infused cookies in Chocolate Chip, Double Fudge, and Macadamia Nut flavors. They’re so close to homemade she’ll think you baked them from her own recipe.
Homemade Gifts Always Warm the Heart
Remember how much mom loved that ceramic mug you made for her in the third grade? Mother’s Day is the perfect time to get your creative juices flowing again and design a cannabis-themed gift that mom will cherish even more. Earrings, clothing, and even a marijuana-infused meal can make the perfect DIY gift. If you’re having trouble coming up with your own idea, you can always search through sites like Etsy and Pinterest for inspiration.
