With Love, From Hi-Class: 2021 Valentine’s Treats

Looking for a last minute gift to show some love? Here’s our top 4 picks for February 14th

The Boss Bath Bomb by Eve & Co

Since Valentine’s falls on a Sunday this year, it means we can partake in a little me-time. The Boss Bath Bomb is handmade in Strathroy, Ontario by Eve & Co, a female-led company.  Made with high-quality ingredients including citrusy essential oils like grapefruit, sweet orange and lemon, it’s giving us a fresh, invigorating vibe. The bath bomb contains 100mg of CBD and THC (full spectrum cannabis distillate). Simply fill the tub with water at your desired temperature, and drop the bath bomb in! Though it does give the water a gorgeous blue tint, rest assured you won’t end up looking like a sexy smurf.

To add to your luxurious soak, grab yourself a copy of Jerry Seinfeld’s latest book, “Is This Anything?” to induce some bathtime hilarity – we highly recommend.

Balance Topical by Solei

Solei continues to offer up a vast array of thoughtful cannabis products, all originating at their sunlight-drenched greenhouses in Leamington, Ontario. This rich body cream is super moisturizing with a fruity orange scent and contains a 1:1 ratio of CBD and THC. If you’re new to the topical game, it’s important to note that you cannot get high from the application of the product to your skin, even if it contains THC. Lathering our winter-dry skin with a nourishing cream like this is the best type of self-love.

 BC Black Cherry by Flowr

A dozen red roses is always a great go-to, but this flower will rival any bouquet. We’d be remiss if we didn’t include flowers on our list, and this beauty is well deserving. Using Black Cherry Pie and Purple Punch genetics, this indica-dominant cultivar has a high THC level. With deep plum coloured leaves and glistening orange pistils, it’s a sight to behold. The aromas will remind you of freshly baked pastries, and that’s never a bad thing on Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a (non-infused) sweet treat of your own, grab a raspberry croissant or deluxe doughnut from Gouter Patisserie just up the street. Let’s just say we’ve sampled one (or ten!)

 Drift No. 450 Chocolate Rooibos Tea by Haven St.

If you’re looking for a delicately flavoured tea and a refined experience, this is the answer. Drift No.40 Chocolate Rooibos Tea is a light, fruity tea paired with rich chocolate notes. If you’re unfamiliar with rooibos, it’s a caffeine-free tea that’s derived from the leaves of a South African plant and it has a distinctive earthy flavour. It contains 10 mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD and is sold in convenient single packets and the tea bags are even biodegradable and compostable – let’s give the earth a little love today too, right?
