New Products Made for Marijuana Moms

In states where weed is now legal, many moms are fighting back against nausea and postpartum depression with various new cannabis products such as sublingual spray and ingestibles according to an article by The Atlantic. Sublingual sprays are sprayed under the tongue, and the effects generally kick in within a minute. The dosage is small and doesn’t last long, leading many moms to view it as a better option when they need to be productive or around their children.

These new micro-dose products are helping mothers feel more comfortable about their decision to try cannabis and open up to other moms, sharing their experiences and educating others on the benefits. If you’re interested in learning more, check out cannabis education resources or join other marijuana moms at a local event.

RESOURCES FOR MOMS

Nevada Education Funded by Marijuana?

In just six months since Nevada legalized cannabis they have collected over $30 million in taxes for the state, surpassing Colorado. Nevada plans to use these funds to strengthen their education systems, inspiring other states to consider legalization in order to decrease financial deficits. Will what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas when it comes to legalization? Sin city may have just set a new precedent for the cannabis industry letting the numbers speak for themselves.

Getting Rid of Pain without the Pills

Americans consume 80% of the world’s pain killers. Why are we using addictive pills over the healing powers of a natural plant? Recent studies have shown that cannabis was able to reduce opioid use by 77% in patients, and completely replace antidepressants, sleep aides, anti-anxiety, and migraine medicines.
