Nothing beats hanging with your person and getting a little high. So why not use Valentine's Day as an opportunity to get creative and celebrate your love your way? With marijuana becoming legal in more states than ever, there are plenty of ways to celebrate with a 420-friendly twist.
Below, check out our favorite cannabis-friendly date ideas to surprise your sweetheart this Valentine's Day.
1. Smoke & Paint
Spend the night flexing your artistic muscles together. Gather some supplies like canvases, paints, brushes—and a few joints—and get to work. You can find a tutorial to follow and see who can make the most creative masterpiece, or you can work on the same project together, letting your imaginations take the lead.
To really get those creative juices flowing, opt for Sativa-dominant strains and specific, terpene-rich cannabis oils that pair well with artistic endeavors. Here are the best types of cannabis for unleashing your inner artist:
- Kali Mist
- Jack Herer
- Space Queen
2. Feed Each Other THC Chocolates
Skip the traditional Valentine’s Day box of chocolates and get adventurous with some THC-infused treats. If you live in a state where cannabis edibles are legal, try making your own edible creations or pick up some pre-made goodies at your local dispensary. Chocolate truffles, cookies, brownies, and gummies are all popular sweet treats that can be enhanced with THC.
If you're up for experimenting in the kitchen, just be aware of your dosage. Always start with a low dose (less than 5 mg) and monitor the effects before taking more.
3. Draw A Relaxing CBD Bath
Nothing says "I love you" like treating your S.O. to a luxurious soak. Pick up some CBD bath bombs infused with essential oils like lavender or rosemary, then light some candles and put on some relaxing music for the ultimate romantic night in.
CBD is the perfect way to chill out without getting stoned—but if you want to add a little THC to the mix, you can always bring some pre-rolls to the tub. Bubble baths and blunts sounds like a pretty perfect Valentine's Day to us.
4. Surprise Them With 'Flowers'
A bouquet of roses is a V-Day staple. But if you want to surprise your Valentine with a unique arrangement, why not opt for a bouquet of cannabis flowers instead? You can visit your local dispensary to find beautifully colored blooms (like Purple Punch or Blue Dream). Then pick up some wrapping paper, ribbons, and other decorations to create a special gift they won't forget.
If your partner is more of a chocolates person, you could get one of those heart-shaped boxes and replace the caramel candies with buds. Just make sure you save the chocolates for later!
5. Have A Cannabis-Infused Spa Day
You don't have to throw down a bunch of dough at some high-end spa to enjoy all the benefits of relaxation. With a little creativity, you can turn your living room into an oasis of peace and tranquility—and cannabis-infused self-care products are the perfect additive.
Create an indulgent and cozy experience at home with some cannabis-infused massage oil or lotion. Spread out a blanket on the floor, light some candles, play soft music and get to massaging. It won't be long before you both feel like you've been transported to a five-star spa.
6. Host A Private 420-Friendly Wine Tasting
Wine and weed pair together like peanut butter and jelly. There may not be many cannabis wineries yet, but you can still put together a fun and festive tasting night for two from the comfort of your own home. Order a couple of bottles of THC- or CBD-spiked vino—like Rebel Coast, SAKA, or Rickett Brewing—and get ready to enjoy the night.
If you'd rather smoke your THC than drink it, then head to your local dispensary to pick out some cannabis strains that pair well with certain wines. Lighter weed strains pair well with white wines, while heavy varieties are best with darker reds. For an extra romantic touch, you can also create a cheese plate to devour when those munchies inevitably hit.
7. Stoned Movie Marathon
Getting high and watching a movie is a classic date night for good reason—it's the perfect way to kick back and enjoy each other's company. Spend some time curating the perfect mix of stoner-approved romantic comedies, like Knocked Up, We're The Millers, Half-Baked, and Comet.
Or, if you want to stay away from comedies, you can always snuggle up with a rom-dram like Her or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And no movie night is complete without snacks, so don't forget to stock up on your favorite snacks.
To Sum It Up
Valentine's Day is the perfect time to experiment with cannabis-friendly activities. From cooking up an infused feast to taking a relaxing bath with CBD bombs, there are plenty of unique ways to celebrate your love this year with a little bit of weed. So get creative, light up a joint, and enjoy the most romantic day of the year.
