Mother’s Day is a time to show the woman who raised you how much you appreciate her. Though an everyday “I love you” is always welcome, having a dedicated 24 hours to all things motherhood lets you go all out in a big way.
Sure, you can take the “self-made coupon book” route, or—for cannabis-friendly moms—consider a day of cannabis infused treats, gifts, and experiences for a Mother’s Day she’ll never forget.
Below, check out our guide to the best Mother’s Day ever—infused with a little cannabis. (Free hug coupons not included.)
