The Perfect Terpenes For You and Your Date This Valentine's Day

Whether you have plans for a five-star restaurant or your dirty couch and Netflix, make sure you have the best possible cannabis that will compliment your romantic night.

Is that expensive restaurant going to break the bank?

Be prepared with some OG Kush to guarantee your date doesn’t get the munchies.

Want to avoid “couch lock”? Then I recommend Sour Diesel instead of Skywalker OG for your next trip.

These different effects on your body are caused by a chemical in cannabis called Terpenes. There’s over 200 of them and they can be found in other products as well.

The different smells, tastes, and physical effects that you notice from smoking cannabis are because of terpenes. Knowing what terpenes produce which effects can maximize your cannabis consumption experience and minimize any unwanted reactions this Valentine’s Day.

Three of the most commonly found terpenes are Limonene, Myrcene, and Humulene and they are all guaranteed to elevate your night.

Bubba Kush

Netflix and Chill

So you’ve decided to save the candlelit dinner for a more special occasion, opted for the couch, and your favorite show instead. Make sure you don’t fall asleep early with Limonene; a terpene known to relieve stress but not glue you to the couch. Strains like Sour Diesel, Super Lemon Haze and Bubba Kush will give you the perfect high for your night in.


Effects: Elevated Mood and Stress Relief

Aroma: Citrus/Lemon

Also Found In: Citrus Rinds and Peppermint

Picnic on Mount Everest

You’ve been dating your partner for a month now and somehow finished 5 seasons of Greys Anatomy together. Looks like it’s time to switch things up a bit for Valentine’s Day. A picnic on the beach seems like the best bet to impress so you head out, grocery list in hand and buy everything you need. But what strain of cannabis do you choose for your night?

Strains with high levels of Myrcene create a sedating effect that enhances THC’s psychoactive effects. Strains such as Green Crack, Alien OG, and Northern Lights have high levels of Myrcene, causing the infamous “couchlock effect.” You and your valentine will both feel relaxed, elevated, and secluded; as if you’re having a picnic 29,000 meters above sea level.


Effects: Sedating, Relaxing and Enhances THC’s Pyschoactivity

Aroma: Musk/Herbal

Also Found In: Mango, Thyme and Bay Leaves

Breaking the Bank

It’s Valentine’s Day and your partner really enjoys the finer things in life so you make reservations for dinner at the best restaurant you can find. Before you go and pick up your date, however, you stop by your local dispensary and ask the budtender what strain would be best for your night - you want to go somewhere nice, but you don’t want to break the bank with a $300 dinner.

Without hesitation, they recommend Girl Scout Cookies, Sour Diesel, and OG Kush. These strains all contain the terpene Humulene, which can actually suppress one’s appetite. Additionally, Humulene is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor health benefits.

Consuming strains with humulene for your romantic night out will keep you and your date happy and elevated without the munchies breaking your bank.


Effects: Relaxing, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Tumor

Aroma: Hoppy, Piny

Also Found In: Hopps, Clove, Basil



Consumers often underestimate the effect terpenes have on your desired effects when consuming cannabis.

Having knowledge of which terpenes produce what effect can maximize your cannabis consumption experience positively and minimizes any chance of an unwanted high for you and your date this Valentine’s Day.
