Why You Will This Guide
Recently, a member of my Well With Cannabis Community shyly asked me, “but what is a cannamom?”
Canna-moms and canna-dads are dedicated parents who promote safe cannabis use to care for themselves and their loved ones.
While we once lived in the shadows, afraid of judgment and in fear of legal repercussions, we are now taking a stand in the emerging cannabis industry.
This guide will provide insight into how you can use cannabis to help with many aspects of parenting, including physical and mental well-being and quality time spent with family and friends.
Read on to also discover how you can be a part of a bigger movement that is working towards advocating for greater acceptance of cannabis use among parents in society today.
Note: for this article, any reference to a cannamom will apply to canna-dads, canna-parents, canna-grandparents, etc. Label yourself as you see fit – or not!

What is a Cannamom
You’ve likely heard the term “wine moms,” you know, a mom who always has a glass of wine in her hand at the end of a long day.
A cannabis mom is like a wine mom – but just a little bit better 😉
Cannamoms are parents passionate about advocating for the use of cannabis to care for their loved ones and themselves.
They are leading the charge for the successful and safe integration of cannabis into healthy, holistic health routines.
What sets us apart is our commitment to safe, responsible, and effective cannabis use, as well as our dedication to educating other parents on the power of cannabis.
We are devoted to creating an environment where parents feel comfortable talking openly about using cannabis, as well as providing resources on how to use them safely and responsibly.
We play an important role in helping open doors that wouldn’t be accessible without them, ensuring safe access to the life-changing powers of this plant.
My mission as a cannamom is to enable and empower moms and dads like you, creating a safe space within my community less lonely and more enjoyable.
Understanding the Benefits of Cannabis
We know that cannabis offers multiple benefits for various symptoms related to anything from general wellness to chronic illness and pain.
Now, we make it our mission to bring attention to these therapeutic benefits so that members of all families get the opportunity to access better options for themselves and their loved ones.
From improved sleep quality to symptom relief from conditions like anxiety or migraine headaches, the positive effects are making an impact on the daily lives of parents across the world.
Understanding the many benefits of cannabis is key to becoming an informed advocate and contributor within our communities.
Recreational vs. Medicinal Cannabis
Cannabis has been used both recreationally and medicinally for centuries, despite prohibition.
Recreational cannabis consumption is intended mostly for enjoyment, though it can offer some physical relief and mental health support.
Its use comes with more emphasis on its effects rather than the medicinal benefits — bringing attention to how it makes the user feel.
Meanwhile, using cannabis for medicinal purposes takes a distinctly pragmatic approach that focuses on using cannabis to treat a range of symptoms.
Cannamoms are passionate about giving people the right to use this powerful plant however they choose, whether or not it involves a medical diagnosis.
While many women blame themselves, feel guilt and shame, or label themselves as “bad moms” for using cannabis recreationally, I want to assure you that you are not a bad parent for choosing to use plant medicine.
Cannabis is a Parenting Tool
As I often say on my podcast, cannabis is a powerful tool in the parenting toolbelt.
While it affects us all differently, those who have found their sweet spot know that plant medicine can help us be better parents.
Parents who use cannabis as a tool report that it enables them to be more patient and understanding with themselves, their children, and their spouses.
With more patience, we can foster better relationships with our children, strengthen our bonds, return to playfulness, and grow together as a family.
Cannabis can help to bridge the gap between us as the parent and them as the child by allowing for a greater degree of emotional connection and understanding.
This helps me respond to my children in a more calm and more appropriate way, allowing me to avoid lashing out in anger, snapping, or yelling.
As a result, we feel less guilt and regret associated with parenting while being able to provide the best care possible – it’s a win-win!
Cannamoms Stand Up For Their Families
As the heart of the cannabis revolution, we provide a vital support network for families seeking to use cannabis as a wellness tool.
From the everyday use of cannabis to using cannabis during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or for postpartum depression, we advocate for all types of use.
We know this option can relieve suffering, reduce harm, and increase wellness, which is why it is so important for our families to have access to safe products.
We also share stories of success, uniting communities towards a common goal: increased access to safe and effective cannabis options for ourselves and our children.
