Ready to talk to your kids and teens about cannabis,



How to Talk to Your Children About Cannabis is a powerful, science-backed online class that gives you everything you need to have honest, balanced conversations about cannabis with your kids and teens.



Are you unsure of how to talk to your kids and teens about cannabis?  

You’re not alone. 

You want to open up and have age-appropriate, science-informed conversations with your kids about cannabis. 

You want to help your children understand that cannabis isn’t a gateway drug but a powerful medicine. But we can’t ignore the downsides - especially for the developing brain.

Talking with kids and teenagers can be hard for parents, teachers, and medical professionals alike.


That's because there are many challenges:

  • You worry that talking about the subject could lead to drug experimentation or perceived acceptance of cannabis use.

  • You want kids and teens to have the facts, but there is so much conflicting information out there.

  • You may worry that you’ll give your children the wrong information or send confusing messages about the plant.

  • Explaining cannabis to a 7-year-old is different than explaining it to a 17-year-old.

  • It’s hard to deliver information that could keep children safe in a way that doesn’t make you sound like the D.A.R.E. program. 

  • There is a stigma associated with cannabis use that further complicates conversations on the subject.

But we HAVE to talk to our children about this plant for so many reasons.


  • Maybe you're a cannabis user, and you're concerned about what your children know and think about your use.

  • Maybe your child needs cannabis as a medicine, but you don't know how to explain it.

  • Maybe you're nervous that your teen is misusing cannabis.

  • Maybe you know that talking with your kids about all the tough subjects is the right thing to do, but you need a guide to navigate the cannabis conversation.

The fact is, as legalization sweeps the globe, more and more children will have knowledge about and access to cannabis. 

Plus, over the past 10 years, so many new products and ways to consume cannabis have been released on the market, and they are not all safe for adults and children alike.

As parents, it is our job to explain it in a way that makes sense.


But HOW?

After all, the information out there on the internet is conflicting, confusing, and often not helpful. 

We know fear-mongering doesn't work and schools certainly aren't teaching all the facts about the plant.


We can help.

Kelly and I are both trained teachers and cannabis educators. But we are also parents, and we've had "the conversation" with our children. Actually, many conversations.

And these conversations are more important now than ever as our kids have more access to cannabis (and some pretty scary cannabis products) than ever before.


You don’t want to lie to them about the dangers of cannabis - like you were lied to - but you don’t want to give the impression that “it’s all good.” We know firsthand that walking that line is challenging. Like many complex topics we want to explain to our kids, it’s not just a one-and-done conversation. 

Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about what to say, how to say it, or when.

We've taken our combined 25 of experience and resources and have created an online class that will arm you with our best tools and tips for talking to your kids and teens about cannabis.


​You don’t need to know anything about cannabis or have unlimited time. It will only take you an hour to watch the videos, and then you can dig through the extensive Resource Guide, which is packed full of tips, books, websites, cannabis physician services, and more. We even give you conversation prompts tailored for different developmental stages so you have what you need no matter the age of your children.



In this comprehensive online class, you’ll receive guidance on teaching children and teenagers about cannabis. 

You’ll have a clear understanding of

  • the cannabis plant from a science-informed perspective

  • this plant’s role as a medicine for kids and adults

  • cannabis’ effects on young people’s development 

  • harm-reduction strategies for teens already using cannabis

  • how to have the conversation with your child

You will feel more confident about having this conversation with kids, teens, and even other parents.


Your children will feel safe discussing these issues with you because of your newfound knowledge and abilities to communicate them effectively. 

In fact, some of our lessons are designed to be watched by the whole family, so you can let us do the heavy lifting.
