Dinner by candlelight, roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, and champagne — isn’t that all a little passé for the modern lovers’? While traditional gifts have their purpose, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, couples want to be unique. If you’ve done the “candy and roses” thing for the past several years, then it’s definitely time to break the tradition and go the unconventional route.
Replace the average box of chocolates with medicated chocolate bars, or spice things up in the bedroom with some cannabis-infused lubricant. Doesn’t matter if it’s you’re first Valentine’s or 50th – We’ve put together the ultimate ganja gift guide to help you score that special something for your sweetheart.
Girl or Guy, you can’t go wrong with this choice, and you won’t feel like you’ve wasted your money by throwing away dead roses in a week. Pack a bowl, spark up some passion and let us play Cupid.
Sativas can be a difficult addition to the bedroom because of their tendency to turn a person’s focus inward. Likewise, heavy indicas can cause lethargy which can make it difficult to accomplish much other than a good night’s sleep. Therefore, if cannabis will prelude anything intimate, 60/40 hybrids like Canndescent Connect or the Urbn Legend Lemon Peel are HIGHLY recommended.
Spark sensuality this Valentines with Canndescent Connect 410. Full of vegetal fragrance similar to a loose leaf tea. These dense nugs are interspersed with orange hairs and covered in trichomes. The high from this strain is indeed mellow, making it perfect for winding down to an evening of connection and rejuvenation.
COTC x URBN LEGEND Lemon Peel (Lemon G Phenotype) is another budtender favorite. This infamous Lemon G clone has spawned some of the most flavorful lemon peel hybrids to date. Bred by Archive Seed Bank, this new Urbn Legends x COTC collab is for the true heads looking to hunt for the best of the best. If you’re wanting a happy, euphoric, relaxing kind of high then this strain is for you!
Keep it classic but add a little twist with cannabis-infused chocolates and sweet treats. The Venice Cookie Co. makes decadent chocolate bars that come in a variety of flavors like milk chocolate, white, chocolate, salted caramel, chocolate covered pretzels and more.
If you’re introducing your honey to the world of edibles or testing the waters on a first date be sure to play it safe by micro dosing. Slugworth’s Sour Mota Melons, (watermelon flavored gummy candies) are a fan favorite for beginners. Each Mota Melon is perfectly dosed at 5mg, so we recommend they start with one then wait a couple hours before eating more until they find the right dose. With hardly any medicinal taste these sweet and sour candies are perfect for a day of mellow relaxation.
Looking for something more unique? Mind Tricks toffee is a new creation combining the decadence of handmade confections with the potency of C02 extracted cannabis oil. A collaboration between Jetty Extracts and Sweetbricks, this delectable edible is the perfect hit of both naughty and nice. The sugary, crunchy texture of the toffee is cut by the creamy chocolate and finished with the toasted flavor of the graham cracker. In between it all there’s little bites of marshmallows and bonfire smoke infused sea salt. Now that’s some serious indulgence!
Sweet relief – Many people think of cannabis solely as a method for getting high, but it’s 2018 and we’re here to change that perception. Cannabis infused oils, lotions, balms, and bath soaks are all the new rage. Show your significant other just how much you care by giving them the gift of wellness.
Have a couples massage scheduled? Or maybe you’re playing masseuse! Bring some Tree Lotion with you and experience a “Ganjassage.” A massage with cannabis infused lotion increases your relaxation and helps soothe any muscle aches or pains. Tree Lotion has been known to make the effects of the massage last longer- so you can feel the impact on your body well after the massage is over.
This next recommendation makes a great gift for any occasion, but you should probably go ahead and grab one of these for Valentine’s. Papa and Barkley’s Releaf™Soak is just what your loved one needs to relax. Once they feel the healing power of cannabis mixed with the therapeutic properties of salts and essential oils they’ll feel so rejuvenated you might just get lucky after!
Some say alcohol and cannabis don’t mix. Those people are just doing it wrong. Booze before bud, head hits thud, but bud before booze is a breezy cruise. Blend together and you get some badass cannabis cocktails. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day we wanted to get a little creative by crafting up a canna-cocktail of our own.
