In this rough-and-tumble world of medical marijuana, where government corruption, ill-informed science, and propaganda is rife, it is easy to forget about the important things in life. Like good food, nice buds, and, of course, romance!
And while it’s sometimes too easy to get wrapped up in the mundane things in life, like work, school, or just falling into a rut, taking some time with a significant other can be just the thing to have you feeling refreshed. Whether you’re staying in this year or planning a special day out of the house this year, we’re here to provide you with some much-needed inspiration this year.
Here are some suggestions for couples who can enjoy cannabis together that are fun, unique, and might be just the thing for you and your date this year!
1. Take a Cannabis cooking class
If food be the music of love, then gorge on. Or something like that.
Edibles are bigger than ever nowadays, and learning how to make your favorite dishes with the proper cannabis dosage is essential to getting the most out of your medicine. Thankfully, a whole industry of cannabis-infused cooking has come into vogue as a result.
And while you can likely find an in-person class to sign up for in a recreational legal state near you, like this super fun Puff, Pass, and Bake class in Denver, we’re going to provide some options you can enjoy from the comfort of your own kitchen.
In today’s digital age the internet is always a resource to utilize. You can order a cannabis cookbook of your own, full of step-by-step recipes for crafting delicious cannabis-infused food or even scouring YouTube for a delicious recipe that tickles your fancy, like these awesome THC-infused tacos.
On top of being a great couple activity that requires teamwork, communication, and patience with a tasty payoff at the end, cooking is a valuable life skill. You can never go wrong with stepping up your culinary game and being able to show your date your kitchen flair is an added bonus.
After all, cooking is a great mix of methodical science and artistic creativity, giving you the chance to show off both sides of your brain! The act of learning together and applying your skills – perhaps in a duo or teamwork setting – also gives you the chance to bond and get closer to one another.
If that doesn’t work out or cooking isn’t really your thing, maybe grab an edible or two from your local dispensary and turn on a Netflix and enjoy a show like Cooked with Cannabis instead. Nothing wrong with kicking back and living by proxy every now and then, right?

2. A Weekend Away
Quite simple, really. Find a place with lots of nice natural scenery, book a hotel or nice home to stay in, and spend a nice, romantic weekend together where you get to do all the above on your own time! Especially these days when everyone has been cooped up in their houses for so long, getting out of the house together might be just what the doctor ordered.
With just a quick search on a site like Air BNB will give you a comprehensive list of lovely places you can use as your own for a few days. The best part is that if you’re looking for somewhere isolated and away from the hustle and bustle of a big city, you can find it. Maybe you’re looking for a lakeside cabin? Or a gorgeous rural property where the neighbors are acres away. In most cases, finding a rental that suits your needs is easy and at a decent price point.
You can easily pack up your medicine and bring it along with you for your weekend away, giving you a chance to recharge your batteries with your loved one in a private, safe, and, most importantly, new space than where we’ve spent the last few months in lockdown. That could be just what you need to send the sparks flying this Valentine’s Day!
3. Crafting Some Cannabis-Infused Cocktails
It’s so important, to find a way to spice things up without going out. For obvious reasons, keeping you and your date safe and healthy in 2021 is just as important as having a good time in the first place!
So, if you and your date are missing going out and grabbing drinks together, maybe try to replicate that experience in your living room. You can even add a fun new wrinkle into the mix by infusing those drinks with cannabis!
All you need are some basic ingredients, some booze of your choice, and your favorite strains of cannabis on hand. If you want to make things even easier than having to decarb or cook any of your cannabis, grab a THC or CBD extract or a tincture so you can just pour, mix, and sip for even less work.
While the idea of a cannabis-infused drink might sound overly complicated, in reality, it’s as simple and easy as cooking cannabis-infused food is. Like we mentioned above, the internet is always your friend. You can find simple and delicious cocktail recipes and mixes with just a few strokes of the keyboard into Google!
A delicious milkshake full of both booze and weed? What a way to make this Valentine’s Day in one to remember for years to come!
4. A Cannabis-Inspired Movie Marathon
While we’ve already broken down some of the most iconic and catchy songs about cannabis here at Leafwell before, there are lots of other media that those who love cannabis can enjoy from the comfort of their homes.
There’s no shortage of quality streaming services these days, and most times, you can find something great to watch as long as you’re willing to put in the work to find it! Great cannabis-centric shows like High Maintenance on HBO, Disjointed and ‘Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner’ on Netflix, and programs like ‘Bong Appetit’ and ‘Weediquette’ from Viceland. If you’re looking for a show to binge watch from beginning to end with that special someone, you should consider classic shows involving cannabis like ‘That 70s Show,’ ‘Weeds,’ or ‘Broad City.’
If you’re looking for a movie instead of a show, thankfully there’s a wealth of fantastic cinematic classics made by and for cannabis lovers. Classics like ‘Pineapple Express,’ ‘Friday,’ ‘Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle,’ ‘The Big Lebowski,’ ‘Dazed & Confused,’ ‘Up in Smoke,’ and ‘Half Baked,’ are all easy to find either on streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, or can be cheaply rented via Amazon’s streaming platform to enjoy.
Especially these days, when staying in is the safest option for you and your loved one, watching a great show or movie while enjoying cannabis of any type is always a great option.
5. Set Up a DIY Spa Day
As cannabis-infused products have exploded in popularity, particularly CBD products, we’ve seen the beauty industry taking notice. We recently highlighted the benefits of CBD for skincare here at Leafwell and, since going to the spa these days can be expensive, you should take the time to bring the spa to you and your significant other this year!
You can purchase cannabis-infused bath bombs, bath salts, body washes, and oils that can make for a relaxing and refreshing experience with just a bath and full body massage, something nobody in the history of the world has even turned down from their significant other.
With times as stressful as they are today, doesn’t a relaxing shoulder massage or a couple’s soak in a CBD-infused bath sound fantastic? It’s got everything you need for a successful Valentine’s Day. Skin-to-skin contact with your loved one, relaxation galore, and quality time with your partner. That’s about as good as it gets, if you ask us, especially in a time when there’s more to stress out about than ever!
