Being single on one the most romantic holidays of the year, Valentine’s Day, can be a real drag
or some of us still hanging out in the singles pool. And while it may seem easy to get down in
the dumps around this time, here are some tips for making sure to take good care of yourself on
this day of love. If you find yourself single this Valentine’s Day, fear not, because it’s not all
about the romance.
If you’ve got the afternoon free, beat the rush, and treat yourself to a fancy lunch somewhere, or
meet up with a friend if you’re not the only single folk you know. If outdoors are more your
speed, spend a little time meditating in a park, and envisioning all the great things you love
about you. And then treat yourself to a picnic of some of your favorite foods, and maybe even a
few tokes while you take in the beauty of nature.
Spark up, and head to a movie. Buy tickets ahead of time so you can bypass the teller at most
theaters, and I like to eat a low dose edible to maintain my buzz while watching a flick. Then you
can pig out on all the popcorn and munchies you want, and you’ll be too enthralled in the feature
to worry about much. Oh, and if you get paranoid in public about people knowing you’re high, in
my experience they only know if they’re a little high too, so embrace the theater experience,
and drift off into cinematic bliss.
Pamper yourself with an infused spa treatment at home. Light some candles, slather on this
easy hemp avocado face mask, roll a heady joint, and spend the evening in an infused bubble
bath, taking in some tokes, and letting the world go. Make sure the ambiance is right with some
low key tunes, and light some incense or add a few drops of essential oil to your bath to
enhance your aromatherapy experience. Check out this CBD bath soak made with lavender
from Ambary Gardens for a heightened level of relaxation.

Plan a smoke sesh with some other single friends. Have everyone bring snacks or something to
sip on, and plan a few board games, or pick out some anti-Valentine’s Day cinema like some of
these classics. You can Netflix and chill in a more literal, friends only sense, and make it comfy,
casual, and more fun than sitting in an overcrowded restaurant eating a prix fixe meal with some
date you recently swiped right on in last minute desperation.

Make sure to buy yourself plenty of flowers, like the weed kind, and maybe a beautiful bouquet
of your favorite buds too. Save some moolah by checking out the floral section at your local
grocer, and get creative with what’s leftover. You might find a love for your new hobby of floral
arrangements, or you might just get a pretty bunch of flowers to enjoy. I like to smoke a joint of
something uplifting and more sativa dominant to help the creative juices flow; I usually smoke
heavy citrus and tangie strains to get an out of-the- box focus for new projects.
Hopefully, these spark some ideas about how to enjoy this couple-y holiday in a more fun, plant-
enhanced way. If the single Valentine’s Day blues do start to get to you, watch this video and
teach yourself how to make a homemade gravity bong, and make sure you have plenty of girl
scout cookies stocked up because it’s that time of year. Above all this Valentine’s Day, just
remember that you are loved. Loving yourself, and taking care of the one person who’s always
going to be there, you, is one of the most evocative things you can do.
