Which Cannabis Strains Should You Enjoy With Your Partner on Valentine's Day?
Cannabis is already known as a powerful aphrodisiac, but it's particularly suited to Valentine’s Day. There are marijuana strains that can brighten any dull love life and give your lover’s holiday an extra kick this year. Regardless if you’re spending the pink and red holiday with your partner, friends, family, pets, or just yourself, any one of these strains is a sure pickup. Relax and get romantic. Unwind and ease your mind. For first-time smokers or veteran connoisseurs, there is something for everyone.
Cannabis and Sex: Why Should You Consume on Valentine's Day?
A 2020 study published in the journal Sexual Medicine showed that women who consume cannabis found their sexual experiences to be more satisfying overall when they used marijuana than when they didn't. Reports within the study found that cannabis use was associated with improved sexual desire, more lubrication, and heightened arousal and orgasm. An earlier study, by the International Society for Sexual Medicine in 2019, surveyed both men and women who consumed cannabis before or during sexual activity; 73 percent of the respondents said that they believe cannabis improved their experiences every time. The science suggests that because many people use cannabis to relieve anxiety, their bodies are then more relaxed and responsive to touch when it's time for intimacy.
Valentine's Day would be a perfect time to test this theory for yourself. Whether you're into smoking weed from the same joint together, indulging in chocolate cannabis edibles, or trying out some THC-infused pleasure oils, the quickest way to the heart is to feel the love.
Valentine's Day Traditions with a Cannabis Twist
You can honor Valentine's Day traditions with a cannabis spin outside the bedroom too. Put a new twist on classics like flowers and chocolates with cannabis flower and chocolate edibles. (These are particularly good if you're doing a friends' get-together for Valentine's Day, or honoring the modern tradition of Galentine's Day on February 13th.) Most of the strains below are available in multiple delivery methods. Look for infused chocolate bars and cookies, portable vape devices, or pre-roll packs. Anything that's fun-size and ready to go will mean extra fun for your sweet day!
