Some social distancing and restrictions are starting to lift and with that we can actually go out in public. Restaurants are opening back up, theaters, and bars are slowly coming back to life. So with easing of restrictions you’re finally able to go out for a night on the town with your partner, or meetup with a new prospect. Almost a quarter of adults in Canada use cannabis from time to time so the likelihood you’ll find someone who partakes is pretty high.
Our best bud, weed, is one of the most used and most abundant aphrodisiacs in history – A little bit can help things flow, break down inhibitions and allow you to loosen up and have a laugh without disabling your awareness of your surroundings and incapacitating you like other social lubricants can. Here’s a little guide to help you have a fantastic date night with a little help from Walter. Now of course tolerances vary wildly – you’ll both need to have a good handle on how much cannabis you use, and if this is a new relationship – it’s probably a good idea to take the time to talk about boundaries before you smoke together. Nobody wants to feel or be taken advantage of, and nobody wants to feel like they hurt someone else unknowingly – so before things perhaps get a little blurry – maybe have a quick talk.
We’re also making the assumption that should you follow this guide – you’ll either be walking or have a sober/safe method of transportation. We’re looking to have a fun time, not endanger ourselves or anyone else!
Whether you’re meeting someone new or going out with your spouse, you want to be your most charming self. For me that means being well rested, pain free and alert, with a mild sativa buzz. I like a bit of sativa tincture to give me that buzz, a small boost of energy and to quell the aches of age. This is going to be different for everyone of course – the LAST thing you want for a first impression or night out is being paranoid – so maybe a nice energizing tea is all you need. Take some time to prep your treats for the rest of the evening and get in a positive headspace.
Before a meal a good indica helps grow your appetite. Walter’s always had a knack for picking out the finest indicas around. Have a look at the reviews on some of the different strains and you should be able to find one that fits your budget. If you see pink kush in the cheap 25’s section don’t sleep on it, grab it right away.
Have a small-ish joint ready. Not TOO much – you don’t want to overdo it and disappear in your own thoughts or cause your date to do the same. Balancing it out with a few hauls off of a CBD filled distillate pen will help take the edge off if you think you may have overdone it a little bit.
Ideally you’ll want to choose a quiet spot with a chill vibe and great food. Don’t overdo it with your meal -especially if it’s something heavy like pasta or red meat. You don’t want to be stuffed and unable to move before the night really gets going. Make sure to leave a little room for dessert.
I recommend a Long Beach Cookie or Canna Co Cookie. Split it up how you both decide is best. You’ve just eaten so it’s going to take longer to kick in. Sometimes up to two hours before you start feeling it. The THC will get your heart rate to rise a bit, blood flow to increase, and make every touch feel electric. Again, everyone is going to handle things differently, some people just don’t handle edibles well, and some prefer them. Plan accordingly.
An evening walk now that summer is here is a perfect excuse for a bit of conversation, and a real treat. I like to roll a nice oil joint with cherry oil, but distillate will do in a pinch. We’ve also got some tasty prerolls coated in Hash oil, then rolled in kief from West Coast Smoke Company. Caviar is a nice hybrid blend that will leave you both with a smile on your face. If you want to show off a bit with something a little fancier and your date is as chronic as the rest of us try an ENDO Cannagar. Rolled with BCs finest craft cannabis and coated in some of the tastiest shatter out there it’s sure to impress.
Once you and your partner are in for the evening – use some cannabis infused coconut oil – (you can make you own by mixing 1 cup of coconut oil, warmed up, with a ¼ syringe of Golden Goo Distilllate and mixing until the distillate completely dissolves) to give your partner a warming massage. This mixture will increase bloodflow wherever you rub it and is safe to use anywhere.
It makes for a fantastic lube that offers up an increase in sensitivity for women, which can lead to earth shattering results. Ladies having a hard time getting over the finish line or even dealing with decreased libido from medications; coconut weed lube could be just what you need to get the most out of your sex life. The only real downside with coconut oil weed lube is it’s not compatible with latex condoms – it might cause them to weaken and break so keep that in mind before you put it everywhere.
