Smoking weed could make you “a better mom”
Since cannabis aka weed was legalised, Canadian women are challenging norms and rejecting stigmas around parenting and the consumption of the herb.
A group of women, moms especially have come out to say that they will not hide anymore because they are enjoying the benefits and wish to educate others.
“People are not informed. They still think that when we use cannabis, we sit in front of our television eating pizza like teenagers,” Cyr says.
“When I consume cannabis, I do housework, I play with my children. I am more patient with my children, more present. It helps me to be a better mother, a better person.”
The women even congregate in a facebook group that includes “entrepreneurs, psychologists, models, photographers … they are women from all walks of life,” said “ganja yoga” instructor Cynthia Petrin, herself a member.
“I’m expected to work full time. I’m expected to be with my kids full time. I’m expected to have a clean house. I’m expected to have my bills paid on time. I’m expected to have my winter tires on on time,” one mom says.
“I have so much on my shoulders — I am only one person. The cannabis allows me to accomplish my daily tasks so much better!” another acknowledges.
