Whether she’s taking on the day by checking off her to-do list or kicking up her feet for a day of relaxation, there’s a dank gift for every cannabis-loving mom on Mother’s Day — Because nothing says "I love you, mom" like flower and chocolate!

We love moms who love cannabis — from the matriarch who can out-smoke the entire family, to the microdosing momma, the nightcap smoker, or the mom who’s just dipping her toes back into enjoying cannabis — and every type of cannabis-loving mom in between. 

This Mother’s Day, make sure she’s stocked up on all the weed she could possibly need! If you’re commuting in or out of Boston ahead of Mother’s Day, remember that our Framingham recreational and medical cannabis dispensary is just off the Mass Pike and I90 — a perfect opportunity to stop by. In addition to our Mother’s Day IHP chocolate bar and PRJ bundle (available starting Friday, May 6th while supplies last), we’ve rounded up five ideas for how to incorporate mom’s favorite flower and elevate her day this Mother’s Day.

For The Mom Who Loves Chocolate 

It’s ancient knowledge that moms love chocolate. If the mom in your life likes her chocolate with a side of cannabis and homemade goodies, there’s no easier cannabis-infused chocolate recipe than these chocolate-covered canna-bananas! (Plus, you score extra points for making her a cannabis infused edible from scratch).

What you’ll need

  • Small skewers or popsicle sticks
  • 1 whole Ripe banana slice into 1/2 inch wheels
  • 1 IHP Chocolate Bar 
  • Chocolate sprinkles or finely chopped nuts, for topping

Directions:

  • Line a baking sheet with silicone mats or parchment paper and set it aside. Then break your cannabis-infused chocolate bar into small pieces and melt them on the stove or microwave to create a chocolate dip. Stir constantly. Be sure not to burn your canna-chocolate!
  • Dip your banana slices (strawberries or pretzels work too!) into the canna-chocolate, making sure each slice is fully coated.
  • Place your canna-bananas on parchment paper or silicone mats. 
  • Gently poke each slice with a small skewer or popsicle stick.
  • Dust with sprinkles of choice. 
  • Allow the chocolate to set, about 10 minutes. Indulge with mom immediately or store for up to 3 days in the freezer. Enjoy!

Our IHP Chocolate bars are 100mg (20 pieces, 5mg each) of cannabis infused chocolate. Try melting one square at a time for exact dosage, or melt the whole bar for easy dipping. Choose between milk chocolate or dark chocolate (which is also vegan!) and get ready to take chocolate-dipped fruit to higher levels.

For The Mom Who Deserves a Spa Day

(Hint: That’s all of them!) Make her cannabis infused bath salts. It’s surprisingly easy, and a mom that’s on her feet all day, or one who just wants to enjoy a lazy Sunday, is sure to appreciate a DIY gift that lets her immerse herself in her favorite flower. Note that cannabis infused bath products may help keep skin smooth, and even treat skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and dandruff, but there is no evidence that they have psychoactive effects — so feel free to pair this spa day gift with an indica-dominant VSPR disposable (like Grandaddy Purple). Vapes mean no ashes, no lingering scent, and no clean up needed!

What you’ll need

  • Epsom salts
  • Cannabis oil - There are a ton of great recipes for how to make your own cannabis infused coconut oil online. We followed this recipe from Leafly. 
  • Essential oils - We like lavender, peppermint, and eucalyptus.
  • Dried flowers - We like dried lavender and chamomile
  • Glass jar and lid

Directions:

  • Add 700g of epsom salts to your glass jar.
  • Add 14g of cannabis oil to the jar and stir.
  • Repeat until the salts are evenly coated, but not wet.
  • Add your mom’s favorite essential oils — somewhere between 20-40 drops should do it.
  • Add your mom’s favorite dried flowers, and stir.
  • Allow the mix to settle for an hour or two before using.
  • Use 170–350g per bath and soak for at least 20 minutes to get the full benefits.

For The Mom Who Just Wants to Chill

Flowers are the classic Mother’s Day surprise — so get mom a pre-roll she can easily spark and smoke. A nice, strong indica (like our Perch Harvests Zkittlez or GG4 strains) is the perfect bud for the mom who just wants to spend the day on the couch with takeout from her favorite spot. Caryophyllene is the dominant terpene in both of these strains, and this specific terpene can bring pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects to Mom’s high. 

Pro tip: pick up a multi-pack of our Perch Harvests PRJs to show Mom you can anticipate her needs. Save her time and energy running to the dispensary or rolling her own.

For The Outdoorsy Mom

It’s time we get Mom off of Facebook and show her the best hiking in Massachusetts. We recommend starting with our perfectly dosed 5 mg IHP Fruit Chews, then picking a path! Not a gummy gal? Choose another low dose treat like Levia’s yummy cannabis-infused seltzers (with natural flavors, zero sugar, zero calories and just 5 mg of THC in each 12 oz can). From the Skyline Trail Loop in the Middlesex Fells to Mount Greylock — there are plenty of hiking trails with beautiful waterfalls, mountains, and even ocean views for trekkers of all levels. Remember to start low and go slow with edibles!

For The Mom Who Deserves a Shopping Spree

(Again — that’s all of them!) Let Mom choose her own adventure and let her shop until she drops. If she’s down for a visit to your favorite recreational and medical cannabis dispensary in Massachusetts, stop by one of our locations in Framingham, Hudson, or Pittsfield and let Mom take advantage of our Mother’s Day Bundle: Pick up any Perch PRJ & IHP Chocolate Bar for $29. 

Let our knowledgeable and friendly associates assist Mom in finding whatever she’s in the mood for, and help Mom get the cannabis she needs to take on the day this Mother’s Day!
