So, let’s talk about V DAY. Cannabis and sex have been hot bed buddies for ages. Whether you’re single and like to mingle, in a relationship, threesome, or want to dedicate a night to self-love (or heck, how about the whole week, month, and your entire lifetime?), here are some products that can get things lit by having you feel more sensations in your body, playful, relaxed, creative, connected, and attuned to your senses. Turn on!

Just remember to keep an eye on alcohol consumption—anything more than a glass of bubbles can be a little dicey, especially with edibles. Why not just dedicate the night to a cannabis high? It’s plenty of fun on its own. And beginners, start with 2.5mg and see how that feels—the last thing you want is to be paranoid on date night.

Through mymilligram’s partnership with Sava, you can get your order easily delivered right to your door, which is much better than trying to find a sad bouquet of roses last-minute at Safeway. Thanks for supporting this female-owned company through your orders (and mymilligram!).

Love Potion No. 7 from Humboldt Apothecary is a tincture formulated for pleasure (including damiana), and you can determine exactly how much you want to consume, from 3mg to more (like some good foreplay: go slow, start low). My friend loved it at a recent party, it’s a fun way to start the evening.

Juna’s Jade drops always make me feel sensual as they softly awaken my senses…

Split a sachet of Kikoko’s Sensuali-Tea (it’s potent, so don’t drink the entire thing yourself, because if you’re too high, you may not feel so connected…or hot). You can even steep a sachet and split in a cocktail.

A friend turned me on to the dosist Arouse vape pen, and I gotta say, that formulation is FUN. It makes me frisky and giggly. It’s not my favorite taste as far as vapes go, but the effect is right on. Dosist also makes a Passion pen, which is designed to have a euphoric effect. Since the vapes are pre-dosed at 2.25mg (they vibrate when you’ve reached your dose), you don’t have to worry about getting tooooo high off one hit, and you can re-up as desired (but keep an eye on that, keep it to two or three hits max in an hour if you’re semi-experienced). You can get 50-dose or 200-dose pens on Sava.

Dial up the sensation with some Quiver sensual oil from HerbaBuena (you can also put some on in the beginning of your evening/before your date to get some hot heat and sensation going—it’s like an espresso for your lady parts, vroom). And if you’re practicing safe sex, Quim Rock’s brand-spanking-new Oh Yes! serum is latex-safe! Yes! Yes yes yes! (Be sure to read their product use info since I haven’t done a review yet. These products are more effective on women, but gents, let me know if you have any input!)

Chocolate is pretty much a given on Valentine’s Day (and every day, who are we kidding), and you have all kinds to choose from on Sava, from Lulu’s Botanicals Chocolates (she makes both an Arouse and Love chocolate, but I haven’t tried them), and I find Somatik’s Sparks goji berries relax me beautifully (I love them before a massage)—or you can perk up after a long day at work with their Sparks coffee beans. You can also feed your honey some Satori CBD-rich wild strawberries or almonds without getting too high. 

And if you just want to unwind, have a spoonful of Om Edibles CBD Raw Sipping Cacao, which is full of antioxidants and CBD (with barely a smidge of any THC at all—and if you happen to get too high from something else you consumed or smoked, this can help bring you back down).

Nothing says self-love like indulging in a long bath (and when someone draws a bath for you, ahhh, divine), and Om makes some lovely Epsom mineral soaks, which will not get you high, but you’ll feel relaxed and happy after a bath. (And smell gorgeous.) You can enjoy rose and geranium, or the athletic formula after sex (heh), while lavender will take the day’s stresses away (and the tightness in your shoulders).

Speaking of tight shoulders (an excellent place to start with some touch): give your partner a rubdown with Om’s body oil. Or give yourself a full-body oil worship session. Do it all.

Hey tigress, did you get a little crazy last night, and in the morning too? Some next-day care after a night of sex, condoms, toys, and more with Cosmic View’s Viva La V! can help get things back in balance. Nothing says happy V Day like a happy vag.

Much love to you…allllll of you!
