Moms do countless things to make our lives better and easier. They would throw themselves in front of a train for their kids and grandkids. Everything they do makes us want to help them as well. Perhaps mom just needs some relaxation – a little Zen in her life. Maybe she doesn’t sleep well. Or perhaps she is in pain. If your mom suffers from any of these, she may benefit from CBD or THC.
If you think Mom is ready for something new, see our suggestions below. CBD is a great tool in the fight against stress, discomfort, and sleepless nights. CBD might be the perfect gift to help your mom feel appreciated and get some much-needed relaxation.
Unfortunately, getting Mom to try something for her own benefit is sometimes difficult. She may be resistant to suggestions from the kids, has an objection to anything cannabis based because of misconceptions, or she just never slows down enough to take care of herself. If this is the case with our mom, see below for ideas that may help Mom be more amenable to some CBD-infused relaxation or pain relief.
A Few Tips for Choosing the Right Product
CBD Topicals do not enter the bloodstream and are safe for everyone to use so long as there are no allergies to any ingredients. These are often the best choices for beginners with discomfort. Topicals penetrate only the local tissue and are perfect for sore joints and muscles. More extreme or widespread symptoms may require ingestion. See our full blog article on topicals. If Mom is on the blood thinners coumadin or warfarin, she should speak to her physician before beginning any ingestible CBD. These use the same liver pathway that CBD does and may slow the metabolism of the medications. Need a sugar free option? Choose capsules, water soluble powder, or CBD oils. Gummies typically contain 1-3g of sugar each.
CBD for Busy Moms
Relaxation and Stress Relief:
We have all seen or been there – mom single handedly dealing with work, housework, carpooling for the kids, picking up the groceries and making breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the whole crew. Most moms seem superhuman. All the responsibility Mom creates a lot of stress. CBD might help mom find some peace in the chaos. Research shows CBD supports the body’s natural stress response and soothes tension.

For Moms Who Toss and Turn at Night
Moms certainly deserve a good night’s rest. With everything they have on their minds and in their calendar, quality sleep can be hard to come by. CBD helps improve sleep quality for many by helping the body relax. Better rest can help mom wake up refreshed and better able to face her day.

CBD for Reducing Inflammation and Discomfort
Lugging groceries, kids, pets, laundry, dishes, and cupcakes for the office around can put mom’s body under a lot of stress. Aches and pains are the natural result of a busy and stressful life. This is especially true as we get older. Studies show that CBD has great potential to ease discomfort and tension. This may make it a perfect addition to any mother’s bag or medicine cabinet. Whether it is joint discomfort, muscle soreness, or a stiff back that troubles her, CBD may help.

CBD for Emotional and Mood Support
Life is stressful for all of us. Since Moms worry about the whole family, that stress can be multiplied. This can take a toll on her mood and emotional well-being. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system. That system, in turn, plays a key role in regulating emotions. If you or your mom struggles with keeping her emotions under control, CBD may be able to help. For chronic anxious feelings, regular dosing is most effective.
Top choices for stabilizing mood:
Soft gels – Easy to take and offering a sugar free option, these vegan soft gels are perfect for moms who need an effortless option.
De-Stress Gummies by Enjoy Hemp – Combine the power of mushrooms and CBD for help with balancing mood.
CBD for Help with Menopause
One of the many “joys” of aging is that transitional time known as menopause. I once heard it referred to as “Puberty’s evil older sister.” Hot flashes, sleep disturbances, moods swings, and just generally feeling like a crazy person can all be part of it. CBD may help with some of these symptoms, help calm the mood, and assist with relaxation.
Xula makes a phenomenal herbal and CBD blend to address many of the other concerns as well. It is called “Moon-a-pause” and is an in-store favorite.
A Summary of the CBD Options
Now that you have seen the wide variety of concerns that cannabis products might can address for Mom, there are many options. From the luxury of relieving creams to yummy edibles, there is a CBD solution for almost any mom. Below is some general information about the options.
CBD topicals (creams, balms, lotions)
Topicals are often the best way to turn mom into a fan of CBD. Results are almost immediate (5-10 minutes) and there is no learning curve (just apply where it hurts). All moms deserve a bit of comfort. CBD topicals are a soothing gift that can help ease tension and discomfort. Whether she suffers from post-workout soreness or just the everyday strain being a mom, topicals will help her feel refreshed in no time.
CBD Oil Tinctures
CBD oils are versatile and can be taken sublingually (best absorption), added to her favorite beverage, or even added to her favorite meal. Dosage is easy to vary and oils are perfect for the “start low / go slow” method for finding her ideal dose. CBD oils offer a simple and effective way for your mom to enjoy the many benefits of CBD.
CBD and THC Edibles (Gummies and Candies)
If mom enjoys sweets, CBD edibles are a perfect choice. From gummies that taste like a tropical getaway to luxurious chocolates that melt in her mouth, these treats make it easy and enjoyable to get her daily dose of CBD. And for moms who enjoy beverages and smoothies, water soluble powder is an easy way to enhance any favorite drink. There are even THC options.
Every mom deserves the best in life. When aches, pains, stress, and sleeplessness zap the joy out of life – consider the gift of CBD!
