Lest you think we’re just way too into weed, there’s legit proof that incorporating cannabis into your love life isn’t as fringe as you might think. According to the delivery platform Eaze, 2017 was a watershed year for increasing normalization and social acceptance of cannabis use, with Valentine’s Day coming in fourth place as the most popular holiday to purchase some herb.
Noted in Eaze’s “State of Cannabis” report, all major holidays over the past year saw an increase in online marijuana orders, but especially “among those shared with loved ones like Valentine’s Day,” calling this data evidence that society’s attitudes towards marijuana are changing. So it’s not at all weird to get your girlfriend that fancy vaporizer she’s been wanting as a Valentine’s Day gift — in fact, you’re a trendsetter!
As part of this wave of mainstream acceptance, more people are discovering that cannabis can be used as a tool for enhanced communication and sensuality within an intimate relationship. Sex educator Ashley Manta has pioneered the idea of using cannabis as a therapeutic sexual aid with her brand of Cannasexual coaching, garnering tons of media attention for promoting the idea that weed is not only an awesome aphrodisiac, but also a way to deepen lasting connections and work out intimacy issues. As a sign of how impactful these effects can be, even cannabis-themed weddings are on the rise, with events like the Cannabis Wedding Expo springing up to help couples integrate the plant into their ceremonies and receptions in various ways.
Added together, all of these trends point to an incredible potential for cannabis to change your relationships, but first you’ve got to impress that 420-friendly cutie with something they’ll cherish. Obviously, cannabis makes a great gift, with a natural perfume that’s better than any bottled fragrance, and a collection of glittering resin that rivals diamonds any day. Infused into chocolate or lotions, THC offers a surprising twist to this fun, sexy holiday with its own relaxing, euphoric effects, so think beyond bouquets this year!
With this in mind, set a sexy intention for Valentine’s Day this year by creating a romantic mood for an enjoyable elevated experience. Add a sensual spin with cannabis, and check out these 10 unique gift ideas.
