I taught my mom how to buy cannabis for Mother’s Day

Each year for Mother’s Day, I typically take my mom out to brunch, and then we spend the day together outside enjoying the spring weather. I still plan to do that this year, but first I wanted to try something new. So I took my mom to a dispensary to buy cannabis with her for the first time.

My mom has been to a dispensary once or twice before, but has never really had a great experience or found the answers she was looking for. Because of that, she usually just asks me to pick up something “like what I got last time.”

I know a lot of people struggle to understand the modern cannabis landscape, and a trip to the dispensary can be a bit daunting if you don’t know what you’re looking for or how to ask for it. I also know the frustration of getting a bad budtender or having the wrong products recommended.

So, I figured I would introduce my mom to one of my favorite dispensaries in Seattle, Fweedom. Their staff is helpful and awesome, plus they have a great selection of products. I knew my mom would find something that works well for her, and hopefully she’ll feel more comfortable shopping for cannabis products.

Watch the full video to see how it went and what she ended up getting to celebrate her day.
