Just as fireworks are synonymous with the Fourth of July in the United States, so too are chocolates and Valentine’s Day. In fact, leading up to February 14, Americans typically buy about 58 million pounds of chocolates. Now, what if you gave cannabis-infused chocolates to your Valentine? Your Valentine’s Night might just be filled with a different kind of fireworks…
Chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac food since the time of Aztecs. Chocolate contains two chemicals that are linked to arousal, tryptophan, one of the building blocks of serotonin, a brain chemical involved in arousal, and phenylethylamine, a stimulant related to amphetamines which is released in the brain when people fall in love.
While the amount of these two chemicals in a piece of chocolate isn’t significant enough to cause a significant change in brain chemistry, the aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate are probably more psychological than physical.
Psychological or not, if giving your partner chocolate on Valentine’s Day ignites desire in your partner and puts them “in the mood” and more open to romance, why not try it?
Cannabis has a reputation of heightening your senses and letting you lose yourself in the moment, and what better time to welcome that than Valentine’s Day with your special someone?
“Cannabis and its sexual effects are a hot topic,” says Three Wells Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Deborah Malka, “with some proponents claiming aphrodisiac-like effects. What we know to be true is that cannabinoids and endocannabinoids interact with the hormones and neurotransmitters that affect sexual behavior.”
Now combine cannabis and chocolate. You may have a recipe for a passionate, romantic night.
