May 10th, 2019

Your Mom Deserves the Comfort of Cannabis

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, you might be wondering, ”What do I give the woman in my life who gave it all?”

Well, not to worry, your buds at Berkeley Patients Group are here to help. Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide highlights effective products that offer relaxation, rejuvenation, and relief — everything your mom deserves.

Particularly popular among parents are products that contain CBD, one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. The less psychoactive counterpart to THC, CBD offers a plethora of health benefits such as relieving anxiety, aiding sleep, promoting an overall sense of calm, and so much more.

Moms who shop at BPG love CBD, and enjoy topicals, teas, vape pens, bath soaks, and low dose edibles because they offer medicinal benefits and predictable effects.

To make our favorite mom-products more accessible to all, we teamed up with a few of our top-selling brands this Mother’s Day weekend. Save money (and mom) with discounts on Beboe, Kikoko, Satori, OM and Whoopi & Maya from May 10-12 at Berkeley Patients Group.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Berkeley Patients Group is partnering with women-led cannabis brands to support the health, development and achievement of our womxn community members.

Four organizations that offer direct services to womxn in the Bay Area will receive funding and awareness through our campaign. During select dates in March, $2 from every sale of supporting brand partner’s products will be donated to a local nonprofit.

Last month, in just two weeks, we raised over $6,000 for Heart 2 Heart, Kingmakers of Oakland, Black Men Speak and the Rafiki Wellness Coalition in our campaign.

We’re hoping that, with your help, we can raise $15,000 for the Women’s Cancer Resource Center, the Women’s Daytime Drop-in Center, Supernova Women and the Women’s Therapy Center.
