Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 02, 2015
The stars appear to be in alignment for romantics, retailers and cannabis consumers this upcoming Valentines Day.
The holiday falls on a Saturday this year. Meanwhile, the National Retail Federation (NRF) says a strengthening economy means consumers will be spending more on that special someone this Valentines, compared to previous years.
And according to Ryan Fox, CEO and founder of Denvers Grass Station dispensary, that combination is great news for people looking for special Valentines gifts that go beyond the old-school ties, flowers and candy.
Here in Colorado this is the second Valentines to take place with legalized recreational marijuana for adults in effect, he says. Last year, Valentines came too soon after legalization for us to notice any particular sales impact.
But this year, he notes, we have consumers who already feel comfortable purchasing marijuana as a holiday gift, and who enjoy the novelty of giving legal cannabis to friends and family so we expect larger-than-usual sales in the days leading up to Valentines.
Along with cannabis-themed apparel, a wide variety of marijuana edibles and its critically-acclaimed strains of cannabis, The Grass Station is offering a Valentines Day special on EVOS, a natural, THC-infused intimate lubricant thats designed to take lovers to new highs.Consumers buying EVOS in the days leading up to Valentines can purchase a second bottle for half-price.
Valentines Day has also become one of the top holidays for retailers, with the NRF predicting the average consumer will spend over $ 142 on Valentines gifts, meals and special nights-out celebrations this year.
And in states where legal recreational cannabis is available, marijuana like a good bottle of wine — is becoming a traditional gift for people who want to celebrate Valentines with their loved ones, and who might be planning a special night at home.
