Mother’s Day is just around the corner and let’s face it — the typical gift of flowers is just boring. Your mom deserves a better flower.
Given the recent leaps in cannabis legalization, there’s a good possibility your mom enjoys toking up, or at the very least, is open to the possibility. So, this Mother’s Day, consider giving your mom the gift of weed.
Whether it’s a lotion to ease some aches and pains or a nice vape to help bring your mom’s toking into this century, check out the list below for some gift inspiration this Mother’s Day.
CDB-only edibles are the perfect way to introduce anyone who may be apprehensive trying cannabis.
These gummdrops from Lord Jones lack THC, the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that so many associate with the plant. However, each candy contains 20mg of cannabidiol, better known as CBD. Like THC, CBD is an extract that’s found in cannabis, and many claim it carries some of the same benefits as its fun cousin, but without the high.
Given the fact that it won’t get you stoned, this is the perfect gift for someone that’s just entering into the wonderful world of cannabis. Also, who doesn’t like candy?
For a more relaxing vibe, consider gifting mom a nice bath bomb, with weed, of course.
In states where weed is legal, you can pick up a bath bomb that contains both CBD and THC. But, if you live in a location that’s not so pot-friendly, you can pick up one of these CBD-only bath bombs to help mom relax after a long day of dealing with your petty crap.
According to Kush Queen, the bombs are designed to “rejuvenate both mind and body,” and who doesn’t need that?

If mom is ready to make her foray into some more psychedelic pot products, tinctures are a great place to start. Remind her, though, that any time you’re ingesting THC you need to take it slow and keep the dosage low. Edibles can take hours to kick in, and the peak can take another few hours. Here’s a handy guide to edibles if you or mom are diving in for the first time.
Papa & Barkley’s relief tinctures are perfect for taking the edge off without taking a journey, as they contain just 1mg of THC at a ratio of 1:30 against CBD. With a dosage this low, mom may feel a little something, but won’t be begging you to turn on “Stairway to Heaven.” (Obviously, everyone reacts differently to cannabis, and some moms really like Led Zeppelin.)
Papa & Barkley also offers a 3:1 ratio, for someone looking for a little more of a kick.
Sadly, it appears this product is only available in California, but there are plenty of CBD-only tinctures out there for people who live in lame states.
Simply put, the best part about the PAX Era is that it’s so easy to use, you can’t mess it up.
While the PAX 3 remains one of the best vaporizers in the world of cannabis, its younger brother, the PAX Era, deserves an honorable mention, and would make a perfect no-hassle gift for mom.
The wide world of vaporizing various forms of cannabis can be a bit overwhelming, so if you’re looking for something without a ton of frills, buttons, and options, the Era is a perfect gift. Simply pop on a cartridge pre-loaded with your favorite cannabis oil, and you’re good to go.
Obviously, this gift is only available where recreational cannabis sales are legal.
Everyone’s got their own aches and pains, and what better way to help ease the discomfort than getting your joints a little high?
Apothecanna’s Extra Strength Relieving Body Cream is said to “relieve stubborn aches and stiff joints” with its mix of arnica, peppermint, juniper, and of course, cannabis.
While the $60 price tag is a little steep, the lotion landed itself on High Times’ 10 Best Topicals of 2017 for its ease of use on deep muscle and tissue pain.
Chances are, mom’s first introduction to weed was through a joint, and there’s nothing wrong with the classics.
Rolling a joint, however, takes a bit of skill. Sure, you can buy your mom a preloaded cone, but if she’s a regular smoker that can get pretty expensive. Thankfully, these handy joint rollers are incredibly cheap to buy, and produce a solid Seth Rogen-approved cigarette nearly every single time.
While you’re at it, you may as well pick up some rolling papers (and a fat sack) for mom.
There are endless options out there when it comes to rolling papers, but you really can’t go wrong with the classic Raw or Zig-Zags.
Golden Bell Herb Grinder
While you may like the smell of cannabis, nobody wants the sticky icky all over their fingertips, and we’re guessing your mom probably feels the same.
So, if you are going down the joint route, it’s a good idea to pickup a herb grinder as well. It saves time, it saves weed, and it’s much easier on the hands. This model is available for $7.99 on Amazon, but if you’re willing to spend $11.99 you can get a variety of different colors, including rose gold.
If mom prefers flower over concentrates, but prefers vaping over smoking, a flower vape such as the Firefly 2 is the perfect solution to her very specific cannabis needs.
The Firefly 2 is extremely easy to use, it’s completely portable for those on the go, and comes in a variety of different colors. It just makes sense, which is exactly what you want in a handheld vape, especially with that price tag.
The Firefly 2 can also works with concentrates, just in case mom ever wants to venture into some harder stuff.
