Mother’s Day is swiftly approaching and it’s worth noting that there has been an increasing trend of moms turning to cannabis for either wellness or to unwind after a long day. At Highland Cannabis, we firmly believe that canna-moms, or at least the canna-curious moms, deserve some love too, so we offer a diverse range of products to make gifting cannabis a truly special experience. Gone are the days of handmade macaroni art projects, so put down the glue and put your lighters up: it’s time to elevate your gift-giving game with personalized cannabis accessories and weed products from Highland Cannabis that your mom will cherish and enjoy.
Mom’s Enjoy Pot, Too
I know, it might seem hard to believe, but mom’s do enjoy weed, too. In fact, more women are learning the benefits of cannabis consumption and how that can promote overall wellness. We spoke to Shauna Levy last month about how more women are getting involved in cannabis, and how it can be beneficial. Beyond cannabis being a natural option for pain relief, it can also be helpful in helping reduce anxiety.
Beyond THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, other cannabinoids deserve some shine as well. From CBD, to CBG and CBN – each of these cannabinoids work together to create the entourage effect, that can help reduce feelings of stress and help with other conditions like menopause and hormonal imbalances for women.
Even if your mom isn’t into using cannabis for the health benefits, it’s pretty cool that your mom can light up. And she deserves the best of the best to enhance her experience.
Canna-Relief: The Gift of Calm and Relaxation with Weed
For the moms who are wondering: Does CBD take away stress? Our answer depends, there are many cannabis products and cannabis accessories that can help with relaxation and stress relief.
When it comes to cannabis strains, indica-dominant varieties are renowned for their relaxing and sedative effects, making them ideal for those seeking relief from stress or insomnia. To understand the effects of cannabis, it’s important to know about which terpenes to look for.
Terpenes for Cannabis Moms
At Highland, we believe that knowledge is key. Here we’ve broken down some of the most common terpenes that would be beneficial for your canna-enthusiast or canna-curious mom. Try looking for some of these terpenes that are high in stress-relieving terpenes:
This is one of the most abundant terpenes found in cannabis and is also found in other plants, such as hops and mangoes. Myrcene is known for its sedative properties and can help to promote relaxation and sleep.
This floral-scented terpene is commonly found in lavender and is well-known for its calming and soothing effects.
This citrusy terpene is found in the rinds of citrus fruits and is known for its uplifting and mood-enhancing effects.
This spicy terpene is found in black pepper and is known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
By choosing cannabis products that are high in these stress-relieving terpenes, your mom can sit back and really relax! While we can’t make any claims on what strains are best for your mental health, the best thing you can do is try these terpenes, go slow, and start low.

Mom and Pop: Cannabis-Infused Edibles and Beverages
Okay, let’s say your mom isn’t a big fan of smoking, but she still loves dabbling into some edibles. The world of edibles allows for more people to enjoy cannabis in a more discreet way, while also not having to inhale anything. Plus edibles have a longer lasting effect on the body which is desired by people looking for pain relief.
Here are a few of our favourite cannabis-infused drinks and edibles that are available for your mom this Mother’s Day at Highland:
The Mango Passionfruit Sparkling Beverage is a delicious and refreshing treat with just the right balance of sweetness and tart fruit flavours. Each contains 10mg of CBD and small amounts of THC, providing a perfect dose for a relaxing day.
For tea lovers, the Mint Tea 3-pack is a perfect gift. Made with natural and organic ingredients, each biodegradable pyramid sachet contains 10mg of CBD and small amounts of THC, delivering a calming and soothing experience with every sip.
If your mom has a sweet tooth, the Blood Orange Soft Chews and Cherry Lime Gummies are sure to satisfy her cravings. The Blood Orange Soft Chews are vegan and made with fresh CBD isolate, offering a refreshing blood orange flavour with each bite.
The Cherry Lime Gummies come in a sour-then-sweet soft chew with a dual-flavoured blend of cherry and lime.
The Gift of a Cannabis-Experience
A CBD-infused bath can help to soothe sore muscles and promote relaxation for a mom-on-the-go, while cannabis-infused beverages can provide a fun and social way to unwind after a long day. Our recommendations here can be used to curate a cannabis gift basket, incorporating these items along with other marijuana accessories available at our dispensary in Kitchener.
Cannabis Spa Day For Mom
Relax with the three pack bath bomb set from Stewart Farms. Featuring Bubba Kush, Chocolate Hashberry, and Blue Dream, this pack of bath bombs is the perfect way to give your mom a relaxing spa experience in the comfort of her own tub.
If your mom is more of a body scrub person and less of a bath bomb type of gal, treat her to a natural exfoliating body scrub that gently buffs away dry skin while adding moisture. It’s crafted with natural ingredients making it a great option for your mom and will have her feeling refreshed.
To keep your mom feeling rejuvenated, consider giving the gift of luxurious cannabis skincare with Pura Earth’s Japanese Cedar Bud CBD Face Cream. This cream combines pure CBD and Japanese cedar bud extract to provide the skin with deep moisture and nourishment.
CBD Mocktails Featuring Tinctures
If your mom isn’t a fan of the cannabis-infused drinks that come ready-made, we recommend adding a little bit of this oil to a mocktail for that ultimate vacation experience that your mom deserves this Mothers’ day.
Madge and Mercer’s MM — 001 La Calma Lemongrass Ginger CBD Oil is a custom-formulated oil designed for women’s wellness and self-care routines by Shauna Levy. The oil is made with an advanced extraction process that separates CBD and THC to create a precise ratio of terpenes, which are the essential oils that give plants their aroma and flavour. If your mom is particular about the taste of oils, this one is infused with lemongrass and ginger extracts, which add a tasty complement to the oil.
