Smoking Parents – A Closer Look at Parents Who Toke Weed

Published: May 6, 2024

Welcome to the era of Pot Parenting! Gone are the days of wine o’clock; it’s time to pass the joint and skip the after-bedtime booze when you’re looking to unwind. Parenting is a rollercoaster of emotions and challenges, and sometimes we need a little help to get through those long nights of common colds, common core math homework that most of us don’t understand, the endless fundraising goals, travel teams, and everything in between. So, let’s dive into the world of parents who toke and explore how cannabis can be seamlessly integrated into the wonderful chaos of raising kids.

A New Kind of Parenting Journey

Becoming a parent doesn’t mean bidding farewell to your inner coolness. In fact, it’s an opportunity to redefine what it means to be a “cool mom” or “cool dad.” Enter the world of pot parents, where cannabis culture meets parenting prowess. It’s all about breaking the stigma and embracing the joy of parenthood while enjoying a little bit of your own broccoli.

Adult recreational cannabis use is legal in 21 U.S. states, and the marijuana industry represents almost $100 billion of the national economy in 2023. According to a recent YouGov poll, 52% of American adults have tried cannabis. The breakdown of age groups who use cannabis is surprising.

A whopping 63% of adults from ages 45 to 64 reported that they tried cannabis, making this the largest age demographic. The second highest age group is people who are 64 and older, with 54% reporting cannabis use, followed by ages 30-44. Only 37% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 say they’ve tried cannabis. 

Depending on your age, you most likely have a parent – or grandparent –  who smokes weed, or you might be the parent who likes to puff. Cannabis culture is ripe with dads and moms who smoke weed and use cannabis products for a variety of reasons. Weed moms may be referred to as cannamoms, and they represent a large portion of parents who toke.

Wine O’Clock to Weed O’Clock

Let’s face it: parenting can be hard; it’s a beautiful journey filled with love, laughter, and the occasional meltdown (from both parents and kids). If you are feeling like you might be ready to say goodbye to that groggy-wine-feeling in the morning drop-off line and hello to the soothing embrace of cannabis then it might be time for weed o’clock to replace wine o’clock. It’s about finding that perfect balance of having to be “on” as a parent and space to unwind, all while being present for those precious moments with your little ones. 

Keeping Cannabis Safe and Secure

As responsible parents, safety is always a top priority. So, when it comes to storing your cannabis, it’s essential to keep it out of reach of children and pets. Invest in lockable storage containers or stash bags to ensure your cannabis is securely tucked away somewhere that your kids and pets can’t access. Remember, curiosity can get the best of little explorers, so take the necessary precautions to keep your weed away from curious kids and wagging tails. 

Incorporating Cannabis into Kid-Filled Lives

Now that we’ve covered the basics of cannabis safety let’s explore some fun ways to incorporate the well-being properties of cannabis into your parenting routine. From infused bath bombs for a relaxing soak after a long day to CBD-infused snacks for a little mid-afternoon stress relief, the possibilities may be endless. Get creative and experiment with different ways to incorporate cannabis into your self-care routine because, let’s face it, parenting is a full-time job, and you deserve a little TLC, too.

As you continue or begin your cannabis journey, it may be beneficial to set and track your consumption goals. What is the right dosage of cannabis you need to meet your goals, and what method of consumption makes the most sense so that you are still able to be present as a parent? 

Being a parent is an incredible journey filled with ups, downs, and everything in between. But amidst the chaos, it’s essential to remember to take care of yourself too. So, whether you’re a seasoned weed mom or dad or someone curious about incorporating cannabis into your parenting routine, remember that it’s all about finding what works best for you and your family. Here’s to breaking the stigma, embracing cannabis culture, and being kick-ass parents who also happen to enjoy a little green now and then. Cheers to Cannamoms and Smoking Moms everywhere!
