We've done all the thinking for you this Valentines Day.

It’s that time of year again — you’re either making sweet plans for your special someone or flying solo and considering a night of self-care and a much-needed hard reset. Are you feeling yourself? Found love with someone else? Crushing hard on your neighbor? Giddy about your solitude? Whatever love looks like for you, we all absolutely deserve it this year. 

So tuck yourself in and check out our splurge-worthy ideas for turning the light down low and getting intimate. 


A Cozy Night In 

This is the set-up for when you’re looking to unplug and decompress.

A few drops, or hell, a couple of droppers full — there’s no such thing as too much in our eyes — of our PM Formula sublingual tincture will have you melting away in no time. This artfully crafted botanical combination is the perfect end to a long day. Featuring 900mg of THC-free, highly concentrated hemp extract, hops, sweet orange, and roman chamomile.

While you’re waiting for Yuyo’s plants to work their magic, it's time to run a warm bath with Palermo Replenishing Salt Soak with Himalayan Pink + Dead Sea Salts. This calming blend combines healing herbal extracts with Magnesium-rich salts to relax and destress the body. Promote balance and boost mood with this dreamy blend of jasmine, sambac absolute + geranium oil.

Top off this relaxing soak with a Boy Smells Slow Burn Candle by Kacey Musgraves. The “scent-iment” of Slow Burn is about pausing along the way to relax and enjoy exactly where you are right now, and we couldn't agree more. This sultry candle smells of incense, black pepper, and guaiac wood with an undertone of burning embers. So as Kacey would say: Take your time, let the world turn.

Date Night (or Day) at Home

With yourself, your pet, or your favorite human. Or have a date day. What is time anyway? Grab a bottle of our AM Formula to recenter yourself and bring the focus back on you. Blended with 300mg of THC-free, highly concentrated hemp extract, ashwagandha, lemon, and peppermint. The AM Formula is zippy, refreshing, and versatile. 


There has been a lot to drink about over the past 11 months, but maybe you’re looking for a lighter, herbaceous, and uplifting option to your cocktail hour. We love having Kin Euphorics High Rhode as an alcohol-free option. Grounded in an herbaceous palate, Kin High Rhode has notes of earthy florals, tart citrus, and warming spice. Mix with juices, sodas, and a few drops of that AM Formula over soda water. 


So you’ve got your cocktail prepared and snacks on hand. But your night isn’t complete without the entertainment. We love the Belcourt Theatre’s Virtual Cinema! The Belcourt, Nashville’s longtime independent cinema, has taken social distancing seriously by moving their showings to a virtual platform. For $10-$12, you can support a Nashville arthouse theatre and see some hard-to-find titles and thought-provoking new releases for a cozy night in.

The Magic of Terpenes

What makes cannabis and other botanicals so effective when combined together? It's the terpenes they share. If you’ve been a cannabis lover or CBD user, it’s more than likely you’ve come across the term terpenes — to put it simply, they’re the tastes and smells of plants, foods and oils that we enjoy — which have their own therapeutic and beneficial qualities. The best-known terpene is Linalool, which is most often found in lavender — and even more often used as a sleep aid. We’re defining some of the incredible terpenes found in our formulations below, to help you make...

What's In The Bottle?

  The hemp industry is booming. Finding the best products has become more complex as hemp businesses multiply by the 100s daily. Finally, pulling the trigger and purchasing your first bottle of CBD only to feel like nothing is happening and you’ve wasted your money is enough to turn anyone off the plant entirely. As mammals, we all have cannabis receptors also known as the endocannabinoid system in the biz. The endocannabinoid system is a nerve signaling system throughout the human body that helps maintain physiological, emotional, and cognitive stability. With that said, it’s extremely unlikely that someone feels nothing...
