Best 5 Cannabis Strains and Gifts for Mom

Best 5 Cannabis Strains and Gifts for Mom

Mother's Day will be here before you know it, and an increasingly popular gift for mom is cannabis. Whether your mom wants to have a little fun on the weekend after a long week, or she feels like it helps her sleep, weed could be the gift she's looking for this year.

Whether she likes to smoke sativa, indica, or hybrid, I've compiled my top 5 strains for mom for Mother's Day (or any day). If mom’s not a smoker–keep reading, I have non inhalable cannabis gift ideas for mom too!

Blue Dream

Blue Dream is one of the most popular sativa-dominant hybrid strains for a reason. It never disappoints. A cross of Blueberry and Haze, this legacy strain has a sweet taste and smell similar to blueberries. Famous for its daytime use, this is a great strain for moms that want to consume during the daytime hours.

Durban Poison

One of the all-time greats, Durban Poison is a sativa strain that was originally grown in South Africa. With creamy vanilla undertones and a hint of fruit, DP is one of the tastiest strains out there. Being nearly a 100% sativa strain, this one is a must for the mom on the go.

Granddaddy Purple

"The Purps" is on the other end of the spectrum from the other strains mentioned. A heavy indica noted for its beautiful purple hairs and resinous flowers, it's truly a gorgeous plant. A cross between Big Bud and Purple Urkel, GDP packs a strong punch and tastes like grape hard candy. Some people find this one to be more of a nighttime strain, but if you're asking me, I bet mom could get some use out of it any time.


One of the most popular "newer" strains, Runtz is a mix of Gelato 33 and Zkittles and has an eerily similar taste to the candy its name is inspired by. A hybrid strain, Runtz might be perfect for your mom right before she meets up with friends for brunch.

Maui Wowie

We all remember watching Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton sit around their coffee table in "9 to 5" smoking on a doobie, laughing it up when Jane Fonda's character asks Lily Tomlin "What is this called again?

Maui Wowie was the answer. It could also be the answer to what you gift your mom this Mother's Day! A sativa strain that is known to give you the giggles, this legendary strong is perfect for backyard chilling while you await a delicious meal.

What if Mom Doesn’t Like to Smoke?

Mom’s aren’t always into smoking. I get that, sometimes I’m not either. The good news for you (and for her) is, there are SO many other ways to consume cannabis. 

I’ve put together some top picks for mom that aren’t of the smokable persuasion.


Blazy Gummies

These are a delicious treat. Available in multiple flavors, at an affordable price these gummies will be a delight for mom. Check out the Boysenberry, Blue Raspberry, and Elderberry.


Shake That

These prerolls are made from full-flower and are available in indica, sativa, or hybrid. They are also super budget-friendly. So why buy mom one preroll when you can get her 2 (or 3 or 4)? 

Vape Cartridge / Batteries

With several vape cartridge brands and strains to choose from in indica, sativa, or hybrid at a variety of price points. Perfect Union offers such a wide-variety of vape carts that you are sure to find mom an enjoyable vaping experience for a very reasonable price. If mom wants to enjoy, while keeping things fairly inconspicuous--and calorie free--these are the way to go. 


If you’re unsure of what to get, going down the accessory rabbit hole is a must. Lighters, grinders, pipes, bongs, papers, and rolling trays are all readily available at a dispensary near you!

Please remember that these are only some of what is nearly an unlimited amount of choices for mom. But I think with this shortlist, you can't go wrong.
