Just as the title suggests: how do you talk to your kids about cannabis?
I’ll share some of my story: my mother and I recently sat down and had a rather frank discussion. She was brutally honest with me and shared that she had used cannabis regularly during the pregnancies of not only my brother and sister (who are both happy, brilliant, and successful adults today), but she also used it during my pregnancy as well.
Now I had long suspected that my ganja-loving mama had been puffing out during her pregnancy, but she had never confirmed it until recently. She has never really ceased her cannabis use, even to this day…and I couldn’t be happier or prouder of my mom! She is an amazing lady with the warmest heart…I absolutely love her and cherish every day I am gifted with her presence.
I help in the rearing of an 11 year old, and given that her mother and I are both in the cannabis industry, we are very conscious of the inextricable presence of cannabis in all our lives. We are always talking to her about responsible adult cannabis use and she is very understanding and intelligent…however very curious.
I want to know, how do other canna parents raise their kids? How do you approach the topic? Do you keep your green in the proverbial canna-closet? Do you have honest discussions? Do you even bring up the topic? A lot of time kids bring it up first…when did your kids bring up the subject? When is the right age to have the talk?
