No matter what your plans may be for Mother’s Day, if you’re a mom, or you have one you're making plans for, and you’re a cannabis enthusiast, then you’re likely already on the hunt for the perfect strains to celebrate the big holiday. Moms do some of the toughest work there is, rearing the next generation to come, and we want to show our appreciation for these special ladies, by covering some of the best weed strains on the market for them.

Choosing a strain for special occasions like Mother’s Day could be the best idea ever because then you’ll see that the kind of strain matters just as much as a personal preference or state of mind, but starting with a name isn’t always ideal, as they don’t often reveal much about the effects of different weed strains. One example of this is the Blue Dream strain, which sounds like a perfect lullaby, and yet it’s known to be one of the most uplifting and laughter-inducing ones out there.

Weed strains that are perfect for Mother’s Day

Since each Mother’s Day brings a whole new set of experiences and emotions, ramping up in a slow effect that’s controlled by time, we’re going to cover everything from strains that will help you to laze around and get a good night’s sleep, to those that will keep you motivated and energized for hours, so that you can get everything that you planned done, without feeling completely exhausted afterward.


These weed strains will make you tingle from head to toe as they envelop you in a soothing hug that leaves you calm and comfortable, but they won’t quite put you down for the count, which makes them perfect for first thing in the morning when you want to laze about, or later in the evening while you binge on Netflix and snacks, or read a really good book.
