CBD love is in the air! The 2020 Valentine’s Day celebrations started early at Ojai Energetics with the wedding bells of CEO and Founder Will Kleidon saying “I do” to his bride, Caroline, last week. After the two walked down the aisle and formalized their love for each other, the CBD experience was sprinkled throughout the event from a food menu infused with CBD to beverages with a splash of Ojai Energetics elixir.
Inspired by the Love of CBD
We decided to catch up with our friends, family, partners, and media to find out what their favorite Valentine’s day tips, gifts, and advice might be starting with the father and futurist of CBD himself. Kleidon spent his honeymoon in Hawaii (off the grid) and came back with this advice for Valentine’s Day.
- Enjoy meals together – even better with some CBD drinks.
- Spend quality time together without electronics.
- Share five things (or more) that you appreciate and love about each other.
- Laugh with each other.
- Treat yourself to CBD massage.
Whether you’re treating yourself, celebrating with your best friends, or having a special evening with your significant other, we dug deep for expert opinions from Ojai Energetics lovers on the best Valentine’s Day ideas and gifts to keep in mind this holiday, as well as every other day, to keep the love alive!
Valentine’s Day and Every Day Flow
Sometimes you need to get into the flow. We caught up with best selling author and flow expert Steven Kotler on his tips.
When doing what we most love transforms us into the best possible version of ourselves and that version hints at even greater future possibilities, the urge to explore those possibilities becomes feverish compulsion. Intrinsic motivation goes through the roof. Thus, flow becomes an alternative path to mastery, sans the misery.” – @kotler.steven –
For all the Valentine’s Day futurists in the crowd, check out Kotler’s latest book, The Future is Faster Than You Think. It’s a blueprint on how our world will change as a response to the next ten years of rapid technology disruption.
Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas
Avoid the long lines at fancy restaurants by planning ahead with reservations or simply cooking at home.
Always plan ahead, not just the night before. Reservations for restaurants fill up very quickly. Don’t settle for last-minute plans. – Tanner Tinoco, Ojai Energetics Executive Team
You’re sure to impress your date if you opt for cooking at home. You can make things like homemade pizza from scratch, steak, and veggies, or craft pasta. You can even incorporate the creamy taste of the tropics by using CBD coconut oil in your dinner recipe.
Speaking of CBD Coconut oil, one of our new friends Ryan Wells who is taking Ojai Energetics to the next mindfulness level in his newly launched brand Into The Well with the mantra of living authentically by balancing the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual for sustainable well-being.
“I keep discovering how diverse coconut oil can be. The number of ways it’s used in cooking and foods is amazing; adding texture, smoothness, and enjoyment. The uses for CBD coconut oil go well beyond what you put in your mouth, which I recently discovered, and Valentine’s could be an ideal time to explore alternative applications for such an incredible oil, especially enhanced with CBD,” said Wells.
Valentine’s Day Get Away or Staycation
Valentine’s Day is on a Friday this year! There’s nothing better than date night with your loved one on a Friday. Take your Valentine’s date night to the next level with a staycation.
Maybe surprise your partner with a gift and a nice dinner (out or at home) on Feb 13th. Most people will be shocked. After all, who the hell celebrates before the actual date?
Well, that can be you!
As an added bonus: also avoid long waits at restaurants and other hot venues like the movies — if you decide to go for an early celebration.
Plan for a nice night in with a fun movie or two to watch. Make it a late night… Hanging out with your partner for hours is an awesome way to connect (or re-connect), as you get to experience all kinds of moments, from euphoria, excitement, and loads of chatting, to moments of silence where you can appreciate their company and nothing else. – Javier Hasse, Author of the book Start Your Own Cannabis Business (Entrepreneur Press 2018), which hit the #1 Best Seller spot on Amazon, as well as a cannabis-focused, award-winning reporter for Entrepreneur Magazine, CNN, Forbes, MSN, CNBC, Yahoo, MarketWatch, the Houston Chronicle, The Street, Nasdaq, Morningstar, Playboy, Benzinga, MERRY JANE, High Times, Leafly, DOPE Magazine, and many others.
Thomas Hicks, Chief Growth Officer at Ojai Energetics agrees with the thought of a love nest night in and staycation with your lover to help with some bonding.
If you haven’t already, use this day to practice your listening skills, both ways. Remember why you came together and talk about the positives you have with each other. – Thomas Hicks, Chief Growth Officer at Ojai Energetics
If you opt for a night in, you can take the opportunity to relax together. You can power up your dinner cocktail with a dropper of water-soluble CBD oil to feel some relaxation, or simply put the dropper under your tongue. If you’re in the mood to relax and get sensual, give your loved on a probably much-needed massage with a topical CBD gel infused with hemp and some of nature’s most powerful herbs.
Steven Eugene Kuhn, the founder of Quality of Life Services, believes in really getting away and says every
Mom should get four days in a natural spa retreat with all the bells and whistles while Daddy takes care of the kids. Yes, please!
Don’t forget the CBD massage and facial to top it off for the ultimate body, mind and soul experience.
Relax and Focus: Valentine’s Day CBD Experiences
We caught up with Wellness Mama celebrity podcaster Katie Wells after she interviewed Will Kleidon and asked her to unpack her favorite CBD tip for Valentine’s or Galentine’s day experience ideas.
“On Valentine’s Day, or any day, I like to custom-curate where the cannabinoids are going in the body and essentially get into the mood I want. For example, I like inhaling lavender essential oil along with taking the perfect honey dose of the Ojai Essentials CBD oil. This gets me into a relaxation mode. If you want to shake it up a bit, in the morning or when hitting an afternoon lull, try inhaling some peppermint essential oil along with taking your optimized honey dose of Ojai Energetics CBD for a more focused and alert impact,” Wells said.
In case you need a Valentine’s Day checklist, the Wellness Mama, also co-founder of Wellnesse, has the perfect step by step process in planning the perfect date night on Valentine’s Day including ideas ranging from hiking, cooking, massaging and painting.
Valentine’s Day Gifts
With none of the psychotropic effects of THC, CBD is reported to deliver relief from small ailments. Sometimes we tend to lose touch with peace and balance, so what better Valentine’s Day gift to give to your loved one than a CBD starter pack for them to tap into true relaxation? There’s no better time to reap the benefits of CBD. Your partner will thank you for giving them this healthy, effective solution to everyday stressors.
Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Ojai Energetics! ❤️
