Fashion Mamas and hmbldt Are Normalizing Cannabis-Based Therapy for Mothers

This month, we announced our public advocacy of cannabis as a wellness remedy, and were pleasantly surprised by the outpouring of supportive comments, DMs, and emails regarding an otherwise controversial topic.
In California, medical marijuana is legal pursuant to Proposition 215 in 1996 and Senate Bill 420, and in the November 2016 election, voters passed an amendment legalizing recreational use of marijuana. Given its legal soundness here in LA and the fact that — let's face it — more people are utilizing cannabis around you than you think, including (gasp!) moms, we're proud to be the first mother community (outside of cannabis-focused groups) to outwardly promote its many benefits. Cannabis-based health and wellness company hmbldt is our first partner in this category.
hmbldt hosted a beautiful happy hour for our mamas at a showroom that houses fellow advocate, jewelry designer Jacquie Aiche, and the event featured an educational tasting of the six different formulas for their revolutionary dose pen, which was voted one of Time Magazine's Top 25 Inventions of 2016. We love that each of these safe formulas cater to a different need that speak to busy mamas like us, from the beginner-friendly "Calm" — a high-CBD formula that harnesses the anti-anxiety properties of CBD coupled with the calming effects of myrcene and the balancing influences of beta-caryophyllene and limonene — to the stronger "Arouse" — a THC-forward formula designed to relax your mind and body using a precise terpene blend featuring linalool and farnesene, to help you feel aroused and enhance your excitement naturally. It's like having a glass of wine without the hangover.
Thank you hmbldt for an incredible experience, and much love to our members for being the most accepting and supportive women we know. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any specific questions about cannabis-based therapy. You're not alone, mama. (And if this isn't your thang, that's cool too!)
