"Just how Brand becomes one of weed’s most knowledgeable and ardent crusaders is a story you’ll have to follow in the book, but that she’s been to hell and back — with cannabis riding shotgun — makes her wisdom all the more hard-won and reliable. This is an honest, unapologetic book for real women."
– Melinda Misuraca, Project CBD

"In Weed Mom, Danielle Simone Brand demystifies the modern cannabis world for parents who’d like to explore medicinal options—or just have a little fun—without screwing up. She breaks down the latest in cannabis science, history, social justice, and legal concerns in a nonjudgmental and entertaining way. Brand is refreshingly frank about sticky topics like overuse, how to talk to kids about cannabis, and what to do when things go wrong. She also includes an incredibly useful buying guide for those (like me) who feel overwhelmed by the dizzying array of specialized products on the market today."
– Alia Volz, author of Home Baked: My Mom, Marijuana, and the Stoning of San Francisco
"From basic cannabis education, to understanding how cannabis can benefit the older adults in your life, this book covers it all—giving canna-curious women a roadmap to understanding and talking about cannabis in an entirely new light. But where Weed Mom really initiates a new conversation is around the topic of explaining cannabis use to your kids; this is a valuable chapter every cannabis consuming parent ought to consider, and Brand’s insight is comprehensive and on-point."
