Cannabis is moving towards accessibility to the masses. The masses include your mama.
Cute, balanced, and eclectic products that contain both THC and cannabidiol (CBD) are a great way to show Mom you care about her wellness and health, and that you think she's cool (because she is). Plus, they are easier to find than ever.
Here are 10 mom-friendly cannabis items on the market if you're looking to give the gift of weed this Mother's Day (and beyond):
1. Symphony Bath Bombs from Coda Signature
If they're good enough for Lady Gaga and Meryl Streep, they're good enough for Mom. After getting included in the “Everyone Wins” gift bags for Academy Award nominees in February 2019, Coda Signature, the luxe cannabis brand currently on shelves in Colorado, will soon be available in California. Its 3-pack of bath bombs is decadent, indeed. Each bath bomb contains 15 milligrams of CBD and 15 milligrams of THC; the scents are “Calm” with lavender and cedarwood; “Balance” with patchouli and rose geranium; and “Uplift” with grapefruit, black pepper, and rosemary.

Honey is a lovely way to introduce Mom to the benefits of THC. It's easy to dose and a convenient addition to any cupboard. It goes great with tea.

And Honey Pot's 100 milligram bottles can last quite a while.
7. Go Dark Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans by 1906
Colorado's 1906 delivers in quality, consistency and stunning packaging in its “Go” dark chocolate-covered coffee beans.

Made with Strava coffee beans and a sativa-like strain, these beans could be great for small doses before doing daily activities, such as working out and gardening.
8. Herbal Bliss Bath Salts from Life Flower
Super-decadent and $40 a jar, just a spoonful of Herbal Bliss goes a long way.
