It’s time for L.A. Weekly’s Third Annual Weed, Sex, and Chocolate Guide in honor of Valentine’s Day 2022.
Lockdown is over, champions! Valentine’s Day is back in play with the world basically open, and after two years of reasonable excuses about COVID-19, now it’s going to look like you never want to get laid again.
Fear not, we have just the right lineup of drugs and chocolate to help you make the most of conquering your fears and finding a Tinder Valentine!
Om Bath Bombs
In a world of bath bombs filled with hemp CBD from the Chinese Mongolian border, one of the most award-winning companies in cannabis is here to save the day. Om Edibles makes its best-in-class bath bomb with Feeling Frosty hash. There is twice as much THC as Epsom salts in the formulation. Om said that’s so you can actually feel them, but they don’t get you high like taking a hit of weed or an edible. It’s more deep relaxation of your mind and body while also offering pain relief, dermatological relief, and an added beauty benefit. Each bath bomb contains 50 MG of THC, and there also is a CBN version.
Glass House Brands x Marcus Malone Sweater
The sweater is a collab with Mission Green to bring awareness to the social injustice surrounding cannabis convictions. They also hope to spotlight the case of Parker Coleman who is currently incarcerated for the past 10 years for a nonviolent cannabis conviction. The wider theme of the project focuses on the experience of cannabis being a love language in itself, in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Hypewolf Your Highness
One of our favorite farms is teaming up with L.A.’s hypest delivery service to make sure your Valentine’s Day is as loud as possible, even if you’re spending it alone. The Wolfsbane drop features a stunning pairing of Kush Mints and Animal Cookies that we expect to hold up with all the exciting new strains dropping all over the city. But you won’t have to wait in some crazy line for this one! It just shows up at your house!
We’re total punch believers here at L.A. Weekly, as we noted in our profile piece on the brand last summer. But since our chat in August, they’ve gone on to release a new flavor that checks all of the Valentine’s Day boxes, with strawberry chocolate on top of a crunchy chocolate chip cookie base. Thankfully the 100mgs are packed into a manageable size, so you should have no trouble eating two of them like the universe intended.
Buddy’s Chocolate Haus
If it’s Valentine’s Day in L.A., then you know we’re giving a plug to the city’s most award-winning weeds chocolate. While Buddy’s didn’t win The Emerald Cup last year, they had more spots in the top 10 than anyone. And we get it, it feels like going from a convenience store to whole foods compared to some of the other chocolate available out there.
Longtime cannabis curator G-Putt is bringing his own flower line to shelves for the masses. He’s been a regular in circles with hitters for a while, so it’s no surprise the cannabis he’s launching his brand with is up to the task of coming out of the gate strong. The first offering we saw was a fantastic pairing of True OG and Gelato 41; we expect more hitters to come from the line soon.
San Diego Farmers Cup Valentine’s Day Edible Contest
If you feel like a trip south, the San Diego Farmers Cup team is putting on the most stacked edible contest we’ve seen so far in 2022. Head to Cookies Mission Valley on Saturday between noon and 4 p.m., to get your hands on a box and enjoy the onsite festivities they’ll be having in honor of the occasion.
