The Best Pot Strains For Moms

Does Your Mama Got Problems? I can help. Mother’s have a unique set of challenges when it comes to getting through the day. If you’re a working mom then life is a never-ending struggle to manipulate time and learn to live with the inherent pain that comes with leaving kids during the day. Stay-at-home mothers have many of the same time struggles, but with the added bonus of little people screaming in their faces all hours of the day. Marijuana can help with the most mundane of ailments. One of my favorite uses is to treat the awful symptoms of...

Needle in the Hay: Cannabis, Elliott Smith, and Depression

Cannabis and Depression: Why this means something to me. For most of my life I have experienced dark “spells”. It’s a major depressive disorder, but when I was younger I didn’t know that. The spells would always start with me fixating on a single thought, like a scratch on a record. My eyes go foggy, seeing and not seeing. As the thought repeats, again and again, I physically feel a weight draping over my body, like a weighted blanket. The weight is pain. It’s crying, screaming, rage. But it’s silent. It occurs only in my head, and while it’s...

Why Use Pot?

A Rant about Why Parents Use Cannabis In my capacity as The Stoner Mom I receive a lot of judgement from people who have zero cannabis education. Like, none. So I get why other parents, especially mothers, refuse to come out of the cannabis closet. People are dicks and assume a plethora of things based on their evenings watching Fox news with their hands in their pants. I’d like to say this clearly to those people; your preconceptions based on your ancient, public school drug education program does NOT QUALIFY YOU TO SPEAK OUT AS TO WHY EDUCATED ADULTS USE...

Things to do Stoned: Mom Edition

What do you do stoned anyway? I recently asked my YouTube subscribers, why they chose cannabis. Among the many lovely answers was this popular refrain; weed just makes everything better! And it’s true! For someone who has never used cannabis, I guess it would be difficult to understand why stoners have no problem walking around stoned all day. I mean, most people understand why it can be fun to be drunk, but no one wants to be drunk all day every day. How would you function? How would you appreciate and experience the world around you? For a newbie, being...

How Cannabis Enhances my Sex Life

Let’s go on a date My idea of the perfect night. We stay in, the house is child free, he drinks too much, I get very high, and then, sex. Crazy-Amazing sex. One of the greatest joys in life is getting stoned and getting busy. If this is something you have yet to experience, I urge you to hop on board (no pun intended). To have Crazy-Amazing sex and then eat amazing food is basically the best night ever. When the marriage bed leaves something to be desired, I may suggest cannabis, sex, and food. In that order. Cannabis...

Veterans Day

  Marijuana IS Medicine Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance. -George Bernard Shaw Happy Veterans day stoners! This is the day when I encourage stoners to give a veteran a joint. I think that’s a pretty awesome way to brighten someone’s day, don’t you? There are a lot of reasons veterans deserve the right to access cannabis. It’s a healthy treatment for a variety of medical issues, but sadly this is still not public knowledge, making medical users feel ashamed of their medication. With the DEA Chief in the news, singling out every American that...

Weed For Beginners: The Basics Behind Getting Stoned

Every Stoner Has To Start Somewhere The purpose of this blog is to shine the spotlight on a silent demographic: the stay-at-home, suburban, stoner-mom (and dad!) set. Marijuana use for the middle-aged and middle-class is quickly shedding any taboo status. I believe more and more moms on the sidelines at soccer practice will be willing to admit that a discreet bong rip is often preferable to the socially accepted glass(es) of wine. And I’m not alone in believing this. Marijuana is legal in some form or another in 23 states and the District of Columbia. On a federal level, legislature has...

Weed Can Make You A Better Mom

What if I told you smoking weed can make you a better parent? It’s no secret I believe that pot gives mothers super powers, and I know what I’m talking about. Having done the parenting thing both ways (stick up ass method and stoner mom method) I speak as a stoned authority on this. A Jolt of Energy to Rival your Favorite Cappuccino Getting stoned along with our morning stimulant is a first world luxury. There is nothing as soothing, calming, and yet energizing, as a morning combo of pot and coffee. One of my earliest discoveries in the stoner world...

There’s THC in this Milk: Pot and the Breastfeeding Mom

Here’s a familiar refrain; studies on marijuana using mothers and their breastfed babies are few and far between. Like pot and pregnancy, there are some things people just don’t want to touch. Perhaps decriminalization would have an impact on the availability of studies, and we could ditch the archaic Nancy Reagan Bullshit of the 1980’s and move into the future. Or not. Whatever. Breastfeeding- I’m a fan Without totally outing myself, I will say that I am somewhat of a closeted hippie. I like hippie things, hippie ideals, hippie principles. But moving past “hippie” we get to the idea...

Pot and the Pregnant Mom

When I started researching for this post I truly expected to find mountains of evidence supporting that marijuana use during pregnancy harms the fetus. What I found was considerably less frightening and non-conclusive. Here’s what I’ve learned. Today the BFF asked me if I knew then what I know now, would I use pot while pregnant? Fortunately, my morning sickness for all pregnancies was relatively minor and short-term. Additionally, during both of my pregnancies my hormone changes actually lessened my depression significantly. I had yet to be diagnosed with depression so was not using antidepressants. At the time of my...

Veterans Day

Veterans Deserve Accessible Cannabis More than Most It’s Veterans Day, when we honor those who have served the US Forces during peacetime and war. It’s an important holiday, steeped in tradition and federally recognized, unlike say, marijuana legalization. Our Veterans are important to us. We do hear the stories of VA inadequacies, a senate who cuts VA spending, the homeless veteran population (decreasing every year but still an issue), and tragically, the difficulty for veterans in accessing  mental health care. Veteran’s who have been in combat have a higher likelihood for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and statistics show that about...

Eight Easy Ways to be a Responsible Stoner Parent

Responsible Stoner? Not an Oxymoron. Amendment 64 gave us the right to blaze up for pleasure in addition to medical reasons,  in our homes. That includes *gasp* caregivers of children. Sometimes known as parents. Colorado parents rejoice, but only in a private non-showy way, because the legality of the stuff does NOT make you immune to reports to DHS (Denver Human Services). Before you protest, think about any child abuse case featuring alcohol abuse and then agree that having strict child protection measures in place is an asset to a community. Just like your stupid guns in Walmart, your right to...
