When you’re going out with someone for a while, it’s a team effort to keep the flame burning. And while it takes work, it should also be fun!
Cannabis is on the rise as a therapeutic aid for couples, whether it be to decompress, reconnect, or amp up the good vibes. It’s not a new trend either; relationships with cannabis go back as far as Tantric Indian rituals over 3,000 years ago.
Strains like Love Potion that are well-known for enhancing intimacy. Girl Scout Cookies and Trainwreck have passion-producing benefits that go beyond a basic body buzz.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why couples are adding cannabis to their relationships.
If you feel your relationship may have lost some of its spark, don’t give up. Cannabis could help improve your connection with your S.O. and bring those intense moments back. Weed activates your endocannabinoid system, and this controls your memory, mood, and appetite, among other things. The couple that blazes together, stays together…at least until one of you gets up to quench those pasties.
Given that you’re in a relationship with your partner, we take it they already make you belly laugh at the best of times. Let’s get all scientific for a minute here: laughter releases the chemicals in your brain (endorphins) responsible for feeling good. Getting high with your other half can make the simplest things seem hilarious and the more difficult things seem less serious.
If you and your other half have been looking for a way to spice things up in the bedroom and take your sex life to new heights, the answer could be in rolling up before getting down. A lot of people claim that cannabis helps heighten their awareness of touching their partners, and allows them to feel as though sex is better and longer-lasting.
Promotes better health
Chronic pain or illness can put a strain on any relationship, especially if it prevents you from being physical. Adding a floral strain to your wellness routine can help alleviate pain symptoms, allowing you to get back to your frisky self.
Leads to fewer fights
Does anyone really like having heated arguments? We think not. Both you and your partner just feel terrible afterwards so there’s literally no point in arguing over whose turn it is to take out the recycling or who left stale milk in the fridge. Since cannabis might help reduce anxiety, it can help you both mellow out and focus on the simple, easy-to-enjoy things in life (like chips and dip).
Chill time gets better
When both of you are working busy schedules, things can get in the way of that quality time you should be spending together. Life happens. That’s why you’ll want to make the time you spend together count. Smoking cannabis as a couple in your downtime can help take the edge of everyday stresses and allow you to both have fun whether you’re playing video games, going for an evening stroll, or listening to music together.
