VIDEO | 5 minute Tips: How to Grind Weed

On Grinding your Cannabis Hey ya’ll! Check out today’s 5 Minute Tips topic: all about grinding + breaking apart weed. I remember, back in my teenaged-weed-use days, handling the stuff itself was something that I rarely did, it was always a job for the boys. So much so that as a clueless adult I would find myself needing to google all sorts of stupid crap: “How to roll a joint” “How to buy drugs”  “How to safely buy drugs… on Craigslist”  “How to smoke a joint without your apartment neighbors knowing” “How to put the weed in a pipe” So...

Why Use Pot? | A Rant About Why Parents Use Cannabis

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...

How to Smoke Weed Without the Smell

  Managing Smell in a Cannabis Friendly Home The question I get asked again and again, more than any other question, is some form of “how does your house not smell like cannabis??” From the house itself to my children’s school items, people want to know how I keep from stanking up everything. When I was a newbie stoner I was semi-paranoid about the smell. I would often smoke weed in the car with the BFF, and when it was time to pull ourselves out of a hot-boxed car, we would spray ourselves with Victoria Secret Body Spray. (Which...

How to use RAW pre-rolled Rolling Paper Cones or; The Easiest Possible Way to Roll a Joint

How to Use RAW Pre-Rolled Rolling Paper Cones (Because Moms Don’t Know How to Roll Joints) My history with joints and blunts has included everything from pages torn from a Bible to buying exotic wax and kief filled prerolls from legal dispensaries. I remember back in 2003, Googling “how to roll a joint” in my shitty Boston apartment. Somehow patching together a crinkly, spit upon wannabe joint. That was my last experience with weed for many years. Fast forward to today and I can buy a preroll down the street, or, as I have recently discovered, use a Raw rolling paper...

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...

Lazy and Depressed: The Plight of the Stoner

Does Frequent Marijuana Use Promote Depression? I had to laugh the other day when I had TWO conflicting headlines in my news feed: Marijuana Linked to Depression, and Pot Can Relieve Anxiety and Depression. So, which is it? Does marijuana help depression or does it cause it? If it makes us all so depressed why is the most commonly reported reason for marijuana use “stress relief”? Since I’ve started thestonermom.com I’ve received many emails from moms using cannabis to relax and keep a handle on their anxiety and depression, just like I do. Are we all wrong? Are we all making ourselves sicker? My Fight With Depression I have had a major depressive disorder since puberty. In my early 20’s I started dealing with anxiety attacks as well. In the past my anxiety could get so bad that I would be incapable of driving. Terror of the unknown would ruin many attempts to get out and do stuff. My depression was equally debilitating. A despair that would make me lash out. A hollow feeling in my stomach of complete meaninglessness. I would have depressive episodes that would leave me in bed with the door locked, crying silent tears as I stared out into nothingness. Shortly after the birth of my first child I went on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications. They work wonders and my anxiety problems have been gone for...

Q&A: How do you keep the room from stanking?

A recent question from a reader: How do you control the smell of marijuana in the house?  The Stoner Mom doesn’t mess around when it comes to a stinky house. I have too many playdates and little ones running around to have a house that smells like potheads live here. Fortunately for me, my house is big and airy, so it’s pretty easy to air out quickly. Here are some techniques for controlling the smell of your secret mommy deeds:   1. Use a vaporizer. Gosh, I swear if more moms knew about vaping the amount of stoned moms in Colorado...

“I’m a typical suburban millennial with no drug buying experience. How do I buy pot?”

Look. Buying pot is not something the average housewife knows how to do. Today I’m going to tell you what to expect, what to say, what to do and you can file the information away for the day you are ready to use it. Let’s begin. Recreational Marijuana and Medical Marijuana  Determine why you want to buy pot. Is there a medical issue you are trying to treat? Are you looking to spice things up in the bedroom? Trying a new approach for handling anxiety? Maybe you want pot to celebrate a special occasion or accomplishment. Depending on your reason you will see whether you are a...

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...

Q&A: What should a stoner mom’s smoking schedule look like?

Here’s a great question from a reader: I am a first time mom to a 14 month old baby girl. I also like to vaporize. How do you feel about medicating in the morning, not to get so stoned where you can’t do anything, but just enough to handle anxiety and enjoy the day. Do you think this is wrong to do? Do you like to smoke after kids go to sleep or do you sometimes do it during the daytime? Would love to hear your response on this. I always feel so guilty about smoking weed and taking...

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...

Wake and bake

Wake and bake: the best way to start the day Morning y’all. Let me describe my favorite morning ritual, one I get to play out on the weekends. No alarm, I wake up by my exceedingly handsome husband placing a cup of coffee on my bedside table. Sometimes his youngest (girl, aged 2) is with him so I hear adorable toddler banter.  Other times it is just him, and he takes the moment to squeeze me in inappropriate places. Both scenarios are quite enjoyable. Anyhow, he leaves to tend to the children and I am free to grab the bong stashed...
