Being a mom is HARD!
It requires patience, presence, tremendous mental, emotional and physical resilience and the ability to set our own needs and desires aside while we raise good humans.
Cannabis helps! But not every mom has a community around her that accepts and understands her choice to use cannabis to support her motherhood journey.
And even if you do have a great cannamom community at home, sometimes you just need to get away and remember who you are without your kids.
And that’s why we created the Cannamom Retreat.
Come relax and unwind on the farm.
Let us cook for you and clean up after you. Enjoy great company and great cannabis. Sleep in your luxurious bed and arise to bend and blaze yoga while your delicious breakfast magically appears, cooked and ready right after class.
Have a river adventure with lots of time to just breathe in the silence and feel the flow taking you right to where you want to be, with just the right amount of exciting rapids.
Enjoy a sound bath under the milky way, CBD self care massages and facials, time to reflect and collect yourself, pelvic floor pilates, and tons of support for wherever you are at on your journey. All in sisterhood with our favorite plant, cannabis.
So, get that childcare lined up! This retreat is just for you.
You can reserve a single occupancy tent all to yourself, or bring your cannamom bestie and share a double occupancy tent with her!
Tight on funds? There is a lower priced option if you would like to bring your own tent to set up. There are also a few work trade options if you have cooking, cleaning or photography skills. Contact us to inquire.

Yes, this retreat is just for Moms of humans. We focus a lot on the challenges of parenting and the roles cannabis plays in mothering. Anyone who identifies as female and is a parent is welcome and encouraged to attend. If you are not a mom of a human but would love to experience the offerings on this retreat, check out the Emerald Triangle Revealed Tour, our glamping vacations, or you could even plan a retreat similar to this for your group of friends!
No, this retreat is for moms to have some time on their own, away from their families. While we hope one day to allow people over 21 to visit the farm, currently the laws are pretty restrictive on this, so get your child care lined up and come remember what it’s like to have time for yourself.
We can certainly try. You can book the double occupancy rate and request a tent mate connection. If we are unable to find someone who would also like a tent mate, you will be upgraded to a single occupancy and will need to pay the single occupancy rate.
Absolutely, our chef has an amazing ability to deal with all kinds of different diets. All of the food we serve is organic and there are always meat and veggie options at all meals. We do source as much of the food we serve locally from our farm and other local farms, so some vegan and gluten free options may require an additional fee as those foods are not produced locally. Let us know your needs and we will make a plan!
Airport transport can be arranged for an additional fee. There are only a few flights into and out of the California Redwood Coast-Humboldt County Airport (ACV) each day, so it is very likely that all of the retreat participants will be on the same flights and we will be able to coordinate picking everyone up at the same time to keep the cost low, hopefully around $100 for the round trip. It is about a 75 minute drive to the farm from the airport.
