You can still be a responsible and loving parent and consume cannabis. In fact, many parents think that their cannabis use makes them a more doting and attentive parent. I know that in my case, using cannabis does wonders for my patience!
If you’re a parent who uses cannabis medicinally, you have no choice but to use cannabis while you’re taking care of your kids. Your cannabis use does not make you a bad parent in and of itself. It’s how you consume your cannabis that matters. So, how do you consume cannabis safely around your kids?
Do Not Smoke Around Them
You should already know this, but it should always be said. Do not smoke around your kids. Hopefully you are not doing this. If your favorite method of consumption is smoking flower, then you should leave the room when you plan on lighting up. Go out on the back deck. Anywhere they can’t smell it or inhale it themselves.
Keep All Edibles Locked Up and Out of Reach
Edibles are great, but they are also very attractive to children because they look like delicious snacks. Edibles come as cookies, gummy candy, chips, all things that children love. Obviously if children get into these things they can become very sick and even end up having to go to the hospital. I strongly advise getting a good lockbox that you can keep all of your goodies in. If you don’t want to get a lockbox, try those child proof bags you get from the dispensary. Keep them up high and somewhere out of sight.
Try Tinctures Instead
If you are looking for an alternative to smoking flower or taking edibles, there are a couple options at your disposal. You can try using cannabis tinctures. Tinctures are infused liquids that contain THC, CBD, or both. They are much stronger than smoking flower and are very popular with medical users. Best of all, tinctures are not nearly as attractive to children as edibles are, so if your kid happens to come across your tincture, they will probably leave it alone. Still, make sure to keep your tinctures out of reach of the little ones!
There’s Also Vaping
Vaping is also a great alternative to smoking and edibles. Vaping is virtually odorless and requires less of a fuss than loading a bowl. Smoking is great, but if you live in a house with kids there’s not a lot you can do to make sure that they don’t inhale some of that smoke, even if you go into a separate room! Fortunately, with vaping, you don’t have to worry about all of that.
Remember that you can still be an attentive and loving parent when consuming cannabis. The key is to make sure that you are consuming safely around your kids. Their safety is vitally important!
