Mother’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Gifts For Moms Who Love Vaping

AKAMother’s Little Helpers-by the Rolling Stones is in the Public Domain. The BEST gifts for Moms. That’s the gift list that I want to put together. Just returning from the Hall of Flowers, I was privy to some of the finest cannabis flowers in the world, shown to me in all forms, from vaporizers (The Ghost comes to mind), to the ever cleverly designed Puffco Peak, there was something for everyone at The Hall of Flowers. Perhaps the greatest element of this B2B event was the opportunity to openly consume our cannabis, without fear of arrest. That stigma alone is my motivating force behind the use of vape pens. They are non antagonistic. They don’t shout: I’m smoking a joint. They are designed for pleasure, some with added terpenes for taste and aromatics, still others are the exemplification of class and comfort against your lips. I was charmed by so many, but I only have room for eleven, so here goes. Moms Little Helper indeed.

Why You Should Know The Initiative & The Commune Founder Amy Margolis

Amy Margolis, a prominent 17 year practicing attorney and founder of the Oregon Cannabis Association, is an uncompromising go-getter. A deeply entrepreneurial attorney who’s made a career focusing on the Pacific Northwest (and beyond) cannabis space, Margolis is whip smart and uncompromisingly concise. She has dedicated her career in helping her clients and the industry as a whole navigate through the brave new world of cannabis legalization— a very new direction, one that is certainly not the divorce, tax, real estate or the multitude of legal careers she could have followed. Amy is a famed cannabis lawyer and she’s darned good at what she does. That’s only a very small part of what Amy has accomplished in her young life in Portland, Oregon, though. She recently announced the launch of both The Commune and The Initiative to ensure that the cannabis industry remains the most progressive and balanced emerging industry yet.

You’d be hard pressed to find an authority figure when it comes to cannabis cocktails. But Warren Bobrow, the author of Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics, doesn’t think that’s because the combination is a bad idea. He should know — he literally wrote the book on the subject. He’s a strong believer in a good cannabis cocktail. It’s just that everyone else (other than a few brave bar owners) is too scared to tackle the subject.

“I don’t think anyone has had the nerve to do it, nor have they found a publisher to take that type of risk,” Bobrow tells me over the phone, chuckling. “This is not a big lucrative project. I wish it was, but there’s so much preconceived stuff about it.”
