If you’ve ever read a relationship book, asked a friend, or even just googled “keys to a happy relationship” you probably know that healthy communication, togetherness, and loyalty are some of the keys to a long lasting relationship. There’s no shortage of tools, strategies, and qualified mental health professionals available to help you achieve this goal. However, amongst the love languages, principles, and guides, there’s one tool that’s constantly overlooked, and that’s cannabis.
Cannabis is good for relationships. Relationships take work, and it’s work that never ends. Prioritizing a relationship gets more complicated and nuanced with time as you accumulate other responsibilities and priorities, and even gets taken for granted as time goes on. In a world that expects people to balance career, kids, house work, house plants, extended family, and pets, managing all of that can feel more urgent than connecting with your person. However, what better way to reconnect than getting lit with the one you love?
If you have kids and they’re heading back to school, or you can’t remember the last time you went on a date, or if 2020 just wasn’t what you expected and you want a reset (because honestly, who got exactly what they thought they would out of this year?) it might be time to set up a smoke night for you and the boo.
There are many ways cannabis can bring you closer with the one you love. Cannabis is a truth serum, and I mean that in the best way possible. Used properly, cannabis is a tool to stimulate openness and conversation with your partner. Sitting outside with your feet in the grass divulging your oldest and newest thoughts is a bonding experience that can only be enhanced by herbal stimulation. One of my favorite things about cannabis is the way it expands mental and emotional boundaries, which can lead to intimate conversations you can’t have with anyone else. Having that kind of no boundaries intimacy with a partner is bound to make you feel more connected. If you’ve been experiencing blockage due to tension or all out fights, some herb might be the verbal stimulus about what’s holding you back.
Weed makes you horny, and sex is good for relationships. If you used to get high and cuddle all day back at the start of the relationship and now you never do, cannabis is the perfect gateway back to the early days. If you never have, it can be a new experience that brings you closer together. Cannabis encourages relaxation and enhances sexual feelings, which is a good combination for a couple wanting to stick together. It’s a known herbal aphrodisiac and libido booster, and sex is a bonding activity that’s good at any age or life stage. A little bit of weed can only make it better.
Cannabis stops time. Couchlock is an inconvenient way to spend on appointment filled day, but what’s the problem if it’s your date day? Send the kids to a baby sitter, fire up a potent Indica and enjoy the feeling of being together with no responsibilities. And best of all, getting lifted together enhances trust. Because if you can smoke together, you can trust each other. Trust is at the center of every healthy relationship and without it, chances of a happy relationship are slim to none. Cannabis isn’t a cure-all, but it can be a bridge to open communication, intimacy, and honesty in relationships.
