It's that special time of year again, nestled between the whirlwind of the holidays and the refreshing onset of spring. There's this one date on the calendar that absolutely no one can ignore: Valentine's Day.
People usually find themselves in one of two boats: happily coupled up or boldly solo. Of course, there are those who are content in their singleness or those who are less thrilled in their relationships, but those aren't the typical narratives. Here at The Blvd, however, we share one common bond, transcending our relationship statuses: our love for cannabis.
This guide is for everyone, whether you're single, in a relationship, or navigating the complicated waters of a 'situationship' (we've all been there, right?). We're here to ensure your Valentine's Day is as lit as your favorite strain. Get ready for the lowdown on the top cannabis products for a blissful buzz, our hand-picked weed-centric date ideas, and the perfect Mary-Jane-inspired gifts for your significant other. Let's make this V-Day one to remember, with a little help from our green friend.
Valentine’s Day is all about love and good vibes, so we’ve put together a list of our favorite strains to amplify those feelings. Even if you’re flying solo this V-Day, it’s still your day! Self-care is important, too, so we suggest showing yourself a little love and trying out one or more of these fabulous strains:
Green Crack (aka Cush): Snoop Dogg named this popular strain for its energetic, uplifting effects. It’s Sativa-heavy and the perfect strain for a wake-and-bake to start your day. The cerebral high won’t cloud up your mind, but you’ll be feeling happy and focused all day long.
Laughing Buddha: Another Sativa-dominant hybrid, this strain is sure to give you the giggles. The citrus terpenes are easy on the tastebuds, and this is a perfect strain for both solo dates and social gatherings (did somebody say Gal-entine’s Day?).
Black Diamond: A more Indica-heavy strain, Black Diamond is also sure to give you the giggles. This strain is better suited for a chill night in with a movie and snacks—eventually, you might notice a bit of couch-lock going on, so get comfy!
Now that you have some ideas for what to smoke, it’s time to figure out what to do when you smoke. Whether you’re with a significant other, group of friends, or kickin’ it solo, these date ideas are for you!
Go out to eat. I know, it’s traditional, but sometimes it really is nice to go out to a restaurant and have a sit-down meal. Make sure you schedule a ride with Uber, Lyft, or find another safe option, since driving high is super irresponsible. Eating out while high, however, can be extra fun especially if you have the giggles. Plus, this can also satiate all your cravings—just be sure to make a reservation, since Valentine's Day is a busy time in the restaurant industry! Pro-tip: go out to eat at the end of the night! If you go out too early you’ll end up stuffed, and all you’ll want to do is go home and veg out on the couch (and maybe knock boots with your significant other). Make the most of the evening by doing something before dinner, and then getting food, then going home.
Play some sports or exercise. This one might sound a little unconventional, but working out while high can be a really fun experience. Try something new, like dance or boxing, coupled with an easygoing body high. Or, if you’re a runner, try smoking before hitting the pavement. Couples’ yoga can also be really enjoyable. However, don’t try anything crazy while high, like heavy lifting, operating heavy machinery, or driving.
Watch a movie. Another basic one, but sometimes all we want to do at the end of a long day is sit back, relax, and watch something funny (or cheesy). You can order takeout to satisfy the munchies, wear your comfiest pajamas, and watch your favorite movie. You’ll find that smoking beforehand really enhances the experience.
Play a game. Games like Clue, Pictionary, and Life are way more fun when you’re stoned, as long as you can think straight. If you’re with a group of bachelors or bachelorettes on Valentine's Day, this is a great option. Playing charades while baked can be really fun, too, or even a puzzle.
Tour a weed farm. This one is more accessible to folks in the western U.S., but booking a tour of a weed farm can be not only educational but a lot of fun. You can learn about the inner workings of the farm, how weed is processed from flower to product, and some farms have an onsite dispensary. Check out local listing for tour-able farms for date night (or be bold and go solo! You could meet your special someone).
If your Valentine is a smoker, you might be wondering what to get them. Purchasing the perfect V-Day gift can be stressful, we know (is this too sentimental? Not sentimental enough? Too expensive, or not expensive enough? Ugh!). That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the perfect products you can get your smokin-hot Valentine, regardless of your price range.
Chocolate-Covered CBD Gummies. These adorable gummies are a safe, budget-friendly option. They’re cute, Valentine’s-Day themed, and organic and vegan. If these don’t float your boat, however, Greater Goods has a ton of yummy products to choose from.
CBD Lube. If you wanna spice things up a bit this V-Day (or any day, really), consider purchasing this all-natural CBD Lube.
Custom Lighter. A custom lighter is a great, practical idea if your partner isn’t into the more traditional V-Day gifts. You can have it personalized with a variety of messages or designs, and it’s a great budget option, too.
Weed Bouquet. If you want to splurge, consider a weed bouquet. They’re pretty pricey, but you and your partner can enjoy its effects together, or you can savor it solo. If you ration your bouquet, it’ll also last a while, so consider it an investment!
Weed-Themed V-Day Cards. If you want to keep things a bit more low-key, a weed-themed card is lighthearted and budget-friendly. Plus, by purchasing off Etsy, you’re supporting a small business. There are hundreds to choose from, and there's one that's just right for your Valentine.
And finally, of course, 421Store Merch. If you really love your significant other, you’ll get them some MonroeBlvd merchandise! We offer apparel, smoking accessories, CBD products, and even hemp roast coffee. As a token of our appreciation for love, use the promo code ‘20off’ to receive 20% off your entire order.
And that, folks, is 421Blvd’s stoner-themed guide to V-Day. We hope you have a lovely day of love, be it with friends, a partner, or on your own.
Stay chill, stay happy, and stay toasty.
