I wan’t to thank the hosts of The Chat, well the three out of four who took the time to educate themselves on cannabis as well as the article posted by TODAY.
I along with the moms I know do not use cannabis to deal with our kids!! I chose cannabis at twenty-four over pharmaceuticals. In return I am 80lbs lighter, not in a constant dull pain, not up for two days at a time, not walking into walls or worried about becoming dependent. That is the way narcotics/pharmas work on me. Cannabis gives me the ability to focus on my children instead of myself and my health. Making a good mom an even better healthier mom. I look forward to clearing this up more in a Q&A this coming soon LIVE on The Cannavist Mom.

That is not to knock those they do work for. Make it known that cannabis is a legitimate option helping moms medicinally as well as giving them a safer way to wind down recreationally.
“Mommy needs a joint should be just a socially acceptable as mommy needs a glass of wine” & Mommy also needs some relief for legitimate medical problems.
