Why is CBD So Popular Among Mums' Communities?

Mums – you've got to love them. Not only did they give us life (no big deal, eh?), but they also sacrifice so much for us without us even realising it. It is only as we start to get older that we slowly begin to realise how much our parents have done for us over the years and appreciate just how much of a struggle this probably was. 

So, when we get the opportunity to give a little back to our beloved mums, we should all be jumping at the chance – and what better way to help your mum relax and unwind than with a thoughtful CBD bundle?

In recent years, it has become clear that mums are overwhelmingly embracing the ever-growing popularity of CBD. Online forums, including the most well-known mum-targeted forum out there – Mumsnet – are filled with recommendations and success stories of mums who have integrated CBD wellness into their everyday lives for a multitude of reasons. 

But why exactly is CBD so popular among mothers?


Cannabidiol – CBD – has been credited with heralding a new age of cannabis wellness. This versatile cannabinoid has proven popular among people from all walks of life thanks to its long list of potential health benefits and lack of intoxicating effects. Its versatility means that it can be added to a huge range of products, such as CBD oils, gummies and drinks. All of this comes together to offer convenience, discretion, and a natural approach to health. 

CBD is considered a food supplement and, as such, is thought to promote a number of wellness benefits, including...

CBD Oils


It is important to note that clinical research into cannabidiol remains largely limited. This is due to several factors, including prohibition and its effects on cannabis research. Nevertheless, there is growing anecdotal (and some observational) evidence to suggest that CBD may be useful for reducing feelings of stress and anxiety – and if mum-focused forums are anything to go by, it is being used for exactly that. 

Furthermore, the results of a phase 2 clinical trial published in 2022 demonstrated that treatment with CBD was associated with improved anxiety symptoms. Following four weeks of treatment with CBD, participants reported “reduced anxiety as well as improvements in mood, sleep, quality of life, and measures reflecting their self-control and ability to think flexibly.”

Becoming a parent comes with a huge amount of love and happiness, but let’s face it – it's not all rainbows and sunshine. Any parent of young children will no doubt have experienced significant disruptions to their sleep – whether their child is sleeping well or not. In fact, age appears to generally have a negative effect on our sleep quality, with many people finding it more difficult to get to sleep and stay asleep as they get older. 

According to anecdotal reports, poor sleep is among the most popular reasons for using CBD products – and it isn’t just commercial consumers who are seeing benefits. For example, a 2017 literature review found that “preliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia.”

Anxiety and sleep interruptions are also common symptoms of menopause and perimenopause – an unavoidable part of getting older. However, it is again important to note that there are currently no clinical studies that have assessed the effects of CBD in people in experiencing menopause.


Nevertheless, the popularity of CBD products among mums only appears to be on the rise. With all that said and done, a thoughtfully curated CBD bundle could just be the perfect way to say thanks to your mum for everything they’ve done over the years. You can choose from our CBD oils bundle, CBD gummies bundle, or go all out and gift your mum the Goodrays Deluxe CBD Wellness Box.
