If you haven’t realized it already, let me enlighten you: Your mom is the coolest person you will ever meet. Anything you do (within reason), she’s probably done; any question you have she has an answer for. And any novel experimentation you’ve done with weed, she’s way ahead of you. How far we’ve come!
And your mom, being the enlightened, well-versed tastemaker that she is, deserves far more than any product recommendation we could make. But we did our best to curate a national wish list of ways you can say thank you. Last year was all about bath bombs, and we’re back with even more potent, aromatic options to help your mom take the night off. Moms need effervescence and cannabinoids that work best for her, no matter where she lives.
And just a reminder, because your mom will always ask the questions you never knew you needed answers to, these are topical products. Ergo, they aren’t going to induce a high from smoking, vaping, or edibles. In fact, if she wants to, she could roll up her favorite strain, break a gummy off, or hit a nice, (ideally) solventless vape while soaking without any adverse effects.
OM Love Balm
It’s not just the TikTok kids that love skincare. OM has made its name by creating holistic products that fill niches we didn’t know we needed—their bath salts and bombs are some of the best on the market, just check their (dozens of) awards. But what about when the bath is over? Their Love Balm is a uniquely formulated topical with shea butter, a combined 520 mg of THC and CBD, and calendula that works for the face just as well as other erogenous zones.
Proof face and body serums
The proof is in the epidermis. Proof has gained a reputation for its insanely strong tinctures (2000 mg of THC, anyone?), but they also know that cannabinoids work well on the outside as well. Their oil-based body serum has a whopping 500 mg THC and 100 mg CBD; you can add it to any non-infused bath products of your choice, or apply to damp skin after bathing for inflammation and wrinkle relief. The face serum has a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD, and works great alone or mixed with a moisturizer of mom’s choice.
High Desert Pure Soak and Fizz bath salts
High Desert Pure has stepped their bath game up. Their bath bombs are a well-loved fizzing ball of self-care, but there are some days our bodies need a little more than that. Their Soak & Fizz bath salts pack a combined 400 mg of cannabinoids THC and CBD into each bottle for a deeply soothing afternoon of mom staying off her feet. It comes in scents like White Lavender and Citrus Snow. If your mom wants to kick up a notch, given she won’t have any chores to attend to, they also offer a Transdermal Roller Ball. Unlike the bath salts, this 1:1 THC:CBD oil-based topical will penetrate deeply enough to enter the bloodstream and induce some stony feelings.
Avexia Lavender Bath Soak
Under the Verano umbrella comes Avexia, a brand that takes aim at the body’s aches and pains from the inside and out. They’ve loaded up their Lavender Bath Soak epsom bath salts with 100 mg of THC, luscious and skin-friendly oils, and aloe vera. Help mom beat the heat and find her happy place, which is wherever her regular responsibilities are not.
Nové Rose luxury bath salts
Oooh, mama like. Nové not only thought of how to maximize bath time, but also the perfect treat to go with it. They specialize in artisanal chocolates and bath salts, the star being the Rose THC+CBD Bath Salts with 100 mg of each for the rec version; registered medical patients can score its 500 mg version. And of course, it smells like the same bouquet you’re getting for mom, right?
Ceres Garden infused bath salts
Ceres Garden and their Bath Salts understand women. They have multiple formulas in all their topicals to address different needs, even for different times of the month. For mom, we recommend either the Relax or Moon Cycle salts (if you know, you know) for a decadent dip of essential oils, cannabinoids and not having to deal with any family drama or decision-making. Kudos if you pair it with a foot rub afterwards.
District Cannabis infused soaks
District Cannabis does flower first, but that doesn’t mean they can’t appreciate everything the plant can do. If your mom just wants to soak in peace, District’s Infused Bath Soaks will inspire her to get in, lay down, and zone out for as long as she wants. They carry classic scents like lavender, eucalyptus, mint, citrus, and an unscented version if mom wants to play potion master and add some aromatics of her own.
And that’s some national picks for mom care in 2023. Every state has its own options—so just click on over to the Leafly topicals section and put some THC on it.
