Gift your loved one a different kind of flower this February 14th

February 14, 2024, will be the sixth Valentine’s Day since cannabis legalization came into effect in Canada in 2018.

If you and your partner share a love of the herb, you should try to make your night together this year truly dreamy.

The best part is you don’t have to buy expensive jewelry or shell out for a fancy restaurant meal to show them how much you really care.

All you have to do to be a true cannabis Casanova is follow these five easy steps.

1) Show Them you Care with Fun Edibles

Valentine’s chocolates are so cliché.

The red, heart-shaped box with a bow around it usually contains bonbons so low-grade you be forgiven for suspecting they’re melted-down leftovers from unsold Halloween treats.

Here’s a Valentine’s hack: Go to your local dollar store and buy the cheapest, tackiest heart-shaped box of chocolates you can find.

Then empty out the crappy chocolates and replace them with an assortment of legal cannabis confectionaries from your local retail store.

If you prefer to make your own, there are some great edibles cookbooks out there with cannabis-infused recipes for everything from marshmallows to chocolates to gummies.

Whether you’re making your own or buying from a shop, follow the recipes and/or dosing recommendations closely (or risk ruining your night!).

Take things slow! Remember, edibles can take quite a while to kick in (easily an hour or more) so don’t make the rookie mistake of thinking they’re not working and eating more than the recipe recommends.

For adults only: It’s also, of course, super-important to make sure you don’t leave a tempting box of edibles anywhere a young person can get their hands on them!

2) Sow the Seeds of Love

The edibles you and your lover just ate will, as mentioned, probably take an hour or more to fully kick in.

Which gives you two some quality time to do something together that symbolizes your ever-growing love for one another.

February 14th happens to be the perfect date to start cannabis seeds in anticipation of the outdoor growing season.

Now that there are more than 20 cultivar options for buying legal seeds, you can order a four-pack of your favourite strain ahead of your special night.

You can even pre-germinate them so they’re ready to put into soil that evening.

Decorate some grow-pots together to express your budding romance.

Then fill them with your chosen growing medium, transplant the germinated seeds, water them, and get them under lights.

By the time the summer arrives, you’ll have some solid seedlings.

When you put them outside around the beginning of June they should start growing like, well, a weed.

Once they’re ready in late September/October you can harvest the dank fruits of your passion while reminiscing on the fun-filled evening you spent together back in f-f-f-frozen February!

Here’s a couple of quick tips: Choose feminized seeds to avoid having to identify and delete males later, and if you’d like to grow Autoflowering seeds, start those in May, not February.

3) Create Your Own CBD Spa

Once your seeds are planted and your edibles start to take effect, it’s time to truly pamper your partner.

CBD oil massages are all the rage at trendy New York City spas, but there’s no need to travel to the Big Apple to experience one.

A quick search of your favourite online retail menu should provide you with lots of options for CBD topicals (like creams, oils, and lotions).

The Ontario Cannabis Store lists over 60 CBD topicals available right now in the province.

The list is a great place to start for ideas, with everything from bath bombs, face masks, beard oil, massage lotion, and multiple options for CBD lubricant.  

4) Nothing says I love you like Gorilla Berry

You’ve pulled out all the stops so far.

Your magic night wouldn’t be complete without enjoying some high-quality flower together.

Whether it’s already your daily go-to, or you’ve been looking for an excuse to try it for the first time, GreenSeal’s Gorilla Berry is the perfect indica to enjoy together as a romantic nightcap.

5) Order in Pizza!

Now that you’ve enjoyed cannabis in several romantic formats, there’s only one thing left to do to make it the perfect night.

Heart Pizza

You don’t need to go out to a fancy restaurant.

If you’re like most cannabis-loving couples, ordering-in your favourite pizza is about as good as it gets when you’re in such a blissful state.

Let someone else do the cooking and use the time to enjoy each other’s company.

Just make sure you’re decent when the delivery person comes to the door!

Canna-Be Your Valentine?

Celebrating Valentine’s Day with plain old chocolates or dumb roses is so 2018.

Now that legalization is here, make the most of all the opportunities for good, clean, cannabis-fueled romance.

Do you have any (non-x-rated) ideas for cannabis couples celebrating Valentine’s together?
