How to Gift Your Grandma Cannabis: BPG’s Holiday Guide

December 18th, 2019

Cannabis use among seniors is rising, with nearly 15% of US adults, 60 and older reported using cannabis in the past year. 

9% of seniors have tried both CBD and THC for health-related reasons, and 51% of those that have been attempting it reported having an improved quality of life afterward.

At Berkeley Patients Group, seniors are one of our most beloved patient groups: they offer wisdom, humor, and a unique perspective on life, and they enjoy many of the benefits that cannabis offers. 

Because we see firsthand the power of cannabis to improve seniors’ lives, we created this guide for gifting cannabis to the seasoned soul you love–just in time for the holidays.

This list contains pro-tips and top-picks selected by our consultants, so you don’t have to stress over how and what to give– you’ll be wrapping up relief, sleep, and tranquility in one package!

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.

BPG’s Wellness Guide for 2019

February 7th, 2019

For most of us, achieving better health is a New Year’s resolution in 2019 (and, let’s be honest, has been almost every year).

Wellness is a journey that requires balancing the physical, emotional, and spiritual facets of your life. It can be challenging, but we believe in you, and we’re here to help!

Making small changes to your daily regimen allows you to work towards your goals, one step at a time, without feeling overwhelmed.

Each week, introduce one new adjustment and focus on accomplishing it every day. If it’s a task, assign a time when you will complete it. Ultimately, you will transform each task into a habit.

If you miss a day or make a mistake, don’t worry. Change takes time, and wellness is not rigid, it’s fluid. Thank yourself for making the commitment to your health and make a promise that you will do better tomorrow.

Meditating in the morning, joining a group fitness class, adding more vegetables to your diet, or drinking eight cups of water per day are a just few adjustments you can make towards a more balanced lifestyle.
