Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Cannabis-Loving Moms in CanadaLeafly Canada StaffMay 9, 2019
With cannabis now legal across Canada, the tradition of gifting Mom flowers on Mother’s Day could take on a whole new meaning. Whether she’s down to toke with her adult children or looking for some solitary R&R, we’ve rounded up a few alternatives to tulips.
Editors note: Special thanks to The Friendly Stranger for helping us showcase some of our favourite Canadian-made makers.
The Canna-Curious Mom
Fun, practical accessories like a geometric pipe, colourful cube grinder and durable stash bag are among the fresh, femme-friendly cannabis accessories that are in full bloom this spring. Meanwhile, chic, smell-proof storage containers and heavy concrete rolling trays provide a solid foundation to share the how-tos of rolling a joint with the woman who taught you how to use a fork.
Strain and product recommendation: If you’re set on buying flowers for Mom, consider a balanced strain like Altavie’s Harmonic or Liiv’s Yin & Yang. For those looking for a discrete, non-smokable option, consider discreet and convenient cannabis softgels like Penelope from Tweed.
The Old School G-Ma
Looking to gift your grandma with cannabis accessories that deserve pride of place alongside the Royal Doulton? These smoking haute cannabis accessories are too pretty to hide away; My Bud Vase doubles as a bong and a vessel for cut flowers, while, toile-printed cones and a shiny brass grinder are mint picks for that special lady in your life.
Strain and product recommendation: For a woman interested in non-intoxicating cannabis products, pick a high-cbd strain like Aurora’s Temple or consider while Mom’s seeking a moment of well-deserved rest and relaxation might enjoy Solei’s Unplug Oil.
The Kitchen-Saavy Mom
If the matriarch in your family rules the kitchen, consider introducing cannabis in a setting where she feels most comfortable. Cookbooks and cooking journals offer a way to explore cannabis through cuisine and a pretty floral dugout is a pretty good option for a quick puff while the oven preheats. For those that toke together, add a sense of occasion and a chance to bond by setting the scene with gilded teacups or a handcrafted ceramic bong.
Strain and product recommendation: East Coast kitchen parties might benefit from a sweet and nutty strain like The Optimist from femme-friendly grower Eve & Co., while Chocolope, from Whistler Cannabis Co. on the West Coast, is a delicious pairing to share over a spot of tea.
