What is Mom Weed and Why We Need It

*Disclaimer: do not use cannabis while pregnant or nursing. While Dockside Cannabis has well-educated staff members and we are proud to employ several state-certified MMCs (medical marijuana consultants), we are not medical professionals. All suggestions are recommended based on anecdotal evidence only, and are not to be considered as prescriptive advice. Keep out of reach of children and store all cannabis products in a secure location.

The internet is telling us weed moms are the new wine moms. So what does it mean to identify as a weed mom or to consume mom weed? Is it a new strain? Not yet. Is it only for moms? Of course not! There are already a few books out there about ‘mom weed’ so let’s dive into this new phenomenon. 

As legalization expands across the United States, more moms are finding the knowledge to safely balance cannabis consumption and parenting. Not a weed mom? Don’t worry, it can also be a way to describe your consumption habits, even if you don’t identify as a mom at all. 

Mom weed can be a whole catalogue of strains that assist productivity, relaxation, and anything to necessitate a more positive parenting experience. And you don’t have to be a mom to reap the benefits! Mom weed is versatile. It can be weed to help you get through your to-do list and it can be weed that helps you unwind. Check out some products that are mom weed approved.

*Just a note, cannabis can be consumed in many different ways and the products we’re suggesting are not just limited to flower:

Low key night in? The kids are asleep and it’s a good time for some self-care. Try out Hindu Kush by Puffin Farm. This heavy landrace strain will melt your woes away.


Weed to help you get through your everyday tasks? Try the strain Gilda from Raven Grass. Much like this strain’s namesake comedienne, this flower is sure to leave a smile on your face! Bolster your spirit and quiet your mind with this functional yet relaxing strain.


Ditch the wine and try Happy Apple Sparkling Cider. Made with Washington apples! Can be served hot or chilled. If you’re looking for a daytime option, try CBD Wild Sides in 20:1 Blackberry Lemonade and 1:1 Peach.


Trying to get some much-needed sleep? Try Beauty Sleep by Green Revolution or Deep Sleep by Fairwinds. If you prefer a pillow mint, Mr Moxey’s Dream Mints are flavored with real lavender and peppermint essential oils and infused with CBD, THC, and CBN to provide deep relaxation.




And let’s not forget about the weed dog moms out there! Fairwinds Companion Tincture is super versatile and the bacon flavor makes a great addition to any tomato-based drink. Companion tincture is also available in chicken flavor for the feline types!

Try Swifts 1:1 Chocolate Covered Caramels. Milk Duds wish they could be this fun.  Each piece has 10mg THC and 10mg CBD, so you snack and unwind!
