 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Breaking the Stigma: Cannabis Use and Parenthood

As the proud owner of a cannabis dispensary and a woman without children, I've often found myself pondering the complex and often stigmatized relationship between cannabis use and parenthood. It's a subject that touches the lives of many, yet remains largely unspoken. Today, I want to shed light on this topic, challenging the misconceptions and fears that surround it.

The Stigma Surrounding Cannabis Use and Parenthood

It's no secret that cannabis has a long history of stigma attached to it. Despite the growing acceptance of cannabis for both medical and recreational use in many places, parents who choose to consume cannabis still face unwarranted judgment and discrimination. This stigma is particularly suffocating for women who may be considering starting a family but fear the societal consequences of openly using cannabis.

The Fear of Judgment

One of the most significant barriers that deter women from becoming parents while using cannabis is the fear of judgment. Society often perceives cannabis users as irresponsible, unfit parents. But let's dispel that myth right now. Responsible cannabis use and effective parenting are not mutually exclusive.

Responsible Cannabis Use

Being a responsible cannabis user involves making informed choices, consuming in moderation, and prioritizing the safety and well-being of yourself and those around you. This is no different from responsible alcohol use or any other legal substance. When parents approach cannabis with the same level of responsibility they apply to other aspects of their lives, it should not be a cause for concern.

Navigating the Stigma

Breaking down the stigma around cannabis use and parenthood can be a daunting task, but it is necessary for progress. Here are a few strategies to help parents confront and combat the stigma:
1. Education: Knowledge is power. Educate yourself and others about the science, benefits, and risks associated with cannabis use. When you have accurate information, you can confidently challenge misconceptions.

2. Open Conversations: Engage in open and honest conversations with your friends, family, and peers about your cannabis use. Share your experiences and let them see that responsible cannabis use doesn't make you a bad parent.

3. Support Groups: Seek out support groups or online communities where parents who use cannabis can connect, share their stories, and provide each other with emotional support.
4. Advocate for Change: Get involved in advocacy efforts to reform cannabis laws and policies, ensuring that they are fair and just. Advocate for a more compassionate and understanding society.
5. Lead by Example: As a parent who uses cannabis responsibly, you can serve as a role model for others. Your actions can help break the stigma and encourage more open conversations.


The fear of judgment should never be a reason for anyone to forgo the joys of parenthood. Cannabis use does not define your ability to be a loving, responsible parent. It's time to challenge the outdated stereotypes and prejudices that surround cannabis and parenthood.
As we move towards a more accepting and informed society, let's ensure that all parents, regardless of their cannabis use, receive the support, understanding, and respect they deserve. Parenthood and cannabis can coexist harmoniously when approached with care, responsibility, and love.
