hether you’re a marijuana-loving mom or a busy parent working in the cannabis industry, literature can be a great resource for learning and teaching others. Two new books provide education and resources for navigating the worlds of cannabis and parenting. Weed Mom: The Canna-Curious Woman’s Guide to Healthier Relaxation, Happier Parenting, and Chilling TF Out by Danielle Simone Brand serves as a guide for incorporating cannabis into family life to relax, destress, and improve social interactions.
The book teaches cannabis essentials like the basics of THC and CBD, tips and tricks for cannabis use, and how to microdose. As cannabis use becomes more common, the book helps you navigate sharing with family and friends using helpful talking points.
For kids looking to understand their parents’ cannabis careers and explain it to their friends, Kids of Cannabis: My Mom & Dad Work in Cannabis by Brian Sekandi is a helpful resource. It tells the story of three kids—Jack, Charlotte, and Bruce—whose parents work in the fast-growing cannabis CBD industry. Cannabis stigma kept these kids from telling their friends what their parents do for work until the arrival of this book.
