Best Cannabis Cocktails to Try on Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re celebrating with a new love, long-term significant-other, or your BFF, you want to make Valentine’s Day special. In addition to the traditional celebration, level-up your holiday reverie with these cannabis cocktails. They make great gift ideas for weed lovers.

How high you’ll get from these weed drinks depends on how much THC is infused in the alcohol. For homemade infusions, the amount of THC can vary. For newbies to cannabis products, go easy with the drinks. It may take several hours before you feel the effects of the weed. The best beverage on our list, if you want the essences of cannabis and not the high, is the Dramatis Personae. As the recipe stands, the only THC is used to smoke the glass.

You can find weed products for your Valentine’s Day cocktails at your local cannabis shop.
