Vancouver mother opens pot website specifically designed for women
With the legalization of marijuana scheduled to come into effect on Oct. 17, a Vancouver mom has created an online cannabis guide aimed at women.
“[It’s for] people who are new to the industry, haven’t used cannabis before, don’t know what to do, so I am teaching them how,” said Shannon Chiarenza of Weed Mama.
Chiarenza says she wants to dispel the stigma many feel about using pot and show it as an alternative to a glass of wine.
“I think women look down on women, especially moms, who use something like that because it’s this idea that it’s a drug and that it’s illegal and that they have this whole stoner mentality.”
Chiarenza says with legalization, people will no longer be limited to what she calls “mystery weed” from a dealer.
She plans on reviewing the different types of pot to help people choose the best cannabis for them.
