We’re not saying dinner and a movie isn’t enough for you and your sweetie this Valentine’s Day. We’re just saying that these 10 cannabis-related products might just jazz things up when it’s time to head to the bedroom.
Let’s state the obvious first: If you’re going to imbibe in some cannabis fun with your guy or gal, make sure they’re clear on your intentions, willing, and legal, because Valentine’s Day is for love and intimacy. Not getting someone high without telling them the plan. Un-fun.
Secondly, this article discusses sensual, adult products that are described in a general way, but may be too graphic for some readers. Finally, please call ahead, because we can’t guarantee that the products will be at the dispensaries when you go.
Foria Sensual Enhancement Oils: Cannabis to sooth, well, pretty much everything down there without heavy psychoactive effects. “Explore” ($54 for 8) suppositories help stimulate gents, while “Pleasure” ($36) spray is designed for the ladies, creating a warming sensation. “Relief” suppositories are designed to help with monthly menstrual cramps. “Hand-crafted from the female ﬂower of the marijuana plant – one of the oldest known aphrodisiacs in the world,” says the website, foriapleasure.com. Peace in Medicine, 6771 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol.
AYA Vape Kit and Nectar: These classy pens are made for giving. Made with organic cannabis, with balanced, tasty terpenes that will wow first-timers and impress regular users. “Slumber” is an indica dominant blend, while “Awaken” kicks it up with OG Kush and Sour Diesel. An Emerald Report favorite. Organicann, 301 East, Todd Road, Santa Rosa
Sutra Sensuals: Cannabis infused massage oil with bright orange smell and warm feel on the skin. Made with orange, apricot seed, pomegranate and cannabis oils. Sonoma Patient Group: 2425 Cleveland Ave., #175, Santa Rosa.
Rose Geranium Body Oil, Om Edibles + Medicinals: A female-run collective in the North Bay makes bath soaks and body oils with THC for a relaxing effect. Peace in Medicine, 6771 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Satori: Wild dried strawberries covered in milk chocolate make eating weed a little less, well, weedy. The whole box has about 140mg, but suggested servings are 3 pieces, with about 3mg per piece. We’ve eaten a whole handful and barely felt an effect, but hey, it’s still tasty, and your results may vary. Sonoma Patient Group: 2425 Cleveland Ave., #175, Santa Rosa.
Defonce Chocolatier: With a focus on chocolate rather than just cannabis, these are high-end bars made with white chocolate, vanilla beans, matcha green tea, caramel, coffee and hazelnuts. Luxe packaging makes this a $20 candy bar for grown ups only. Approx. 180 mg per bar.
Whoopi and Maya “Savor”: Thick and a bit waxy, this is best for eating straight out of the classy jar, or spreading on your lover. Pace in Medicine, 1061 N. Dutton Ave., Santa Rosa.
Seven Strain Rainbow Tester Tower: We had weeks of fun playing with Organicann’s “Harvest Box” with 28 grams of 2016’s best of the harvest. Equally fun looking: Entinterra Solutions’ Rainbow tower with a lineup of seven classics including Black Lime Tangine, Blackberry Blue Blast and Blue Dream Tangie, $110. Etinterra Solutions Mobile Dispensary at the Bric Hive, 753-4068.
Bhang Mouth Spray: Stay minty and fresh for your sweetie with a quick squirt of these discrete sublingual sprays. THC Spray has 300mg per bottle, so use mindfully. Mercy Wellness, 7950 Redwood Dr., Cotati.
