In beginners guide, Strains, Womens Healthby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

Mom’s who use cannabis are relaxed moms, not bad moms

In parenting, Self Careby Weed Mama2 Comments

The greatest, most wonderful, most lovely, shout it from the rooftops things cannabis does for me is its ability to cancel the day, turn off the noise and leave me present and serene. Mama gets a vacation, maybe not a physical one but a much needed mental one. When I’m with the kids and I use a bit of cannabis (microdosing) helps to calm my frazzled nerves so I don’t snap at the kids. Fear …

CBD & THC work best together

In Cannabanoids, CBD, THCby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

These two things perfectly complement each other. THC seems to boost, or enhance the effects of CBD and CBD tones down the effects of THC. In fact, recent studies have found that the cannabinoids work better together, known as the entourage effect.

The absurdity and the hypocrisy around the packaging laws for cannabis in Canada

In Cannabis, Productsby Weed Mama1 Comment

Imagine that’s how your bottle of wine looked, like it’s rubbing alcohol and should be kept in a medicine cabinet or under the sink with the other toxic substances, plastered with warning labels. Isn’t that atrocious? (The warning label you see in the picture is one used on cannabis packaging with the word cannabis switched to alcohol).

In Cannabis, educationby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

My entire website is to celebrate this wonder plant and the many ways it can help people, however I think it’s important to also talk about the risks.
