Valentine’s Day is in a few days and we’re all searching for great gift ideas. Cannabis products can be a great alternative for those over the age of 21, especially if you are planning an at-home celebration.
Edible cannabis is a great alternative to smoking, as it provides a longer and more sustained effect. It’s easy to control the dose you consume, and the variety of products make it a fun way to experience cannabis.
Before giving any of these products a try, we offer a few tips.
If you’ve never used cannabis before, begin with a small dose of THC (2.5 mg is a good start) and wait for two hours for the full effects before consuming more.
If you’ve never used cannabis products before and you’re concerned about consuming too much, consider having a CBD product on hand. High-concentration CBD products can counteract the psychoactive effects of THC, mellowing out the experience.
Effects for THC edibles usually last four to six hours, but can last much longer. Don’t plan on driving or operating heavy machinery.
And finally, each cannabis product will offer a different effect. For the purpose of Valentine’s Day fun, products that offer a “body high” will be the best options.
Jolie Fleur Blanc or Pink
Celebrations of any kind always call for bubbly. Jolie Fleur Blanc is an alcohol-free, cannabis-infused beverage that will feel like you’re drinking champagne, but without the hangover. Each bottle offers 10 mg THC, perfect for sharing with your lover.
Rickett, the brewer, describes their Blanc as “aromas of green apples, ripe pear flavors, and hints of lemot. It’s light but dry and leaves you with a refreshing light cannabis finish.” Sounds delicious. Their Pink has a balance of sweet and tart raspberry flavors, but with a dry finish.
From The Earth currently has a 10% off sale on all Rickett products until Valentine’s Day.
Hi-Fi Hops Reverb by Lagunitas
If your partner has a preference for brewskies, this Lagunitas product is a great option. This beverage might be alcohol-free, but it still packs a strong punch at 10mg of THC per serving. Lagunitas describes it as “a hoppy sparkling water that drinks like a beer. You’ll get all of the fruity and tropical notes from the hops, but without all the other things that weigh you down.”

Releaf Milk Chocolate by Papa & Barkley
There’s no such thing as Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Papa & Barkley is expanding their product line with their 100 mg chocolate bar that will satisfy any sweet tooth. This milk chocolate bar is made with non-GMO and 84% Fair Trade Certified ingredients, and is soy free. Each serving offers a comfortable 5 mg of THC.
As mentioned earlier, Valentine’s Day activities call for products that provide that “body high.” But consuming edibles is not the only way to achieve those heightened physical sensations.
Our skin is our largest organ in our body and it’s capable of absorbing cannabis molecules through the endocannabinoid system. This means that topical cannabis products can be a great choice for those looking for a full-body experience.
Some of these products also offer minimal psychoactive effects. That’s particularly helpful if you have already consumed an edible. You’ll be able to control your experience without consuming too much.
Here are some great topicals to try this Valentine’s Day.
