There are more parents consuming cannabis than ever. In fact, the majority — 54% — of Americans who use cannabis are parents. And 30% are parents with children younger than 18.
Raising kids is hard work. And stressful. (Sure, sure, among all the rewarding moments.) Parents need to chill out sometimes, too, right? But it goes beyond that.
With legal recreational cannabis in California, moms can use cannabis to cut back on alcohol, soothe anxiety and pain, get some sleep, and make craft days with the kids (or time away from the kiddos) that much more fun.
At Caliva, we also talk to a lot of people interested in sharing the power of cannabis with their older parents, primarily to help them with pain, sleep problems or another medical condition.
So, while you, grown child, might not want to have that convo about cannabis with your mom, Caliva has news for you: Your mom might already shop here.
