The Cannavist Mom

PhotoGrid_1492499495103Hey I’m Kaycee, I am 30 years old, always barefoot, always cursing, happily married to the man of my dreams and mom of three beautifully amazing children; and the step-mom to a step-son who grew in my heart. I was born and raised in Southern California implanted to Central California as an adult.

 A little background but shocker to most I was anti-cannabis until I was 24 years old. Thought it was definitely “the devils lettuce” (rolls eyes now). I was taken away from my parents by DCFS for drugs at the age of five along with my two younger sisters and my older sister. My sisters and I were lucky enough to be fostered by our grandmothers; my older sister going to our maternal grandmother and my two younger sisters and I going to our paternal. I had a decent childhood. I was able to have a relationship with my parents though remaining in my grandmother’s care until eighteen years old. I grew up thinking cannabis actually deserved to be a scheduled one DRUG. Everything and everyone around me told me cannabis was terrible and definitely a gateway drug to ruining your life. I even threatened to leave my ex-husband if he did it while married with children (rolls eyes again).

CannavistMom002ReadySmall-1Now here I am THE CANNAVIST MOM. The man I am lucky enough to call husband (Ant as referred to in blogs) has been a cannabis chooser since he was a teen for anxiety as well as choosing it recreationally as an adult over alcohol. He has always been a responsible cannabis user. He showed me in the first few weeks that I was completely wrong when it came to the cannabis plant. Five years ago I nixed pharmaceuticals for pain and tried cannabis for the first time and never looked back. Now I choose cannabis for many reasons both medicinally and recreationally and guess what IT HAS MADE ME A BETTER MOM . For that reason, I have set out to say that ” Mommy needs a joint should be just as socially acceptable as mommy needs a glass of wine! ”
