10 Ways Weed Can Improve Your Relationships

A couple that smokes together, stays together.

We all know that smoking weed can have myriad health benefits, but did you know it can help improve your relationship with your better half? Lets look at the ways smoking weed can assist your emotional, sexual and psychological life with your partner. Here are some tips.

Cannabis Opens Doors to Deep Conversations

When was the last time you had a truly deep conversation about anything with anyone? Today, people are more intimate with their phone screens or computers than other people and having deep conversations is almost non-existent. Couples who have deep conversations always have more meaningful relationships because they find some common ground on how to solve their problems.

Couples who smoke together find themselves having more time devoted to talking with each other about various aspects of their relationship and this strengthens their bond.

Cannabis Helps You Enjoy Food Together

Weed almost always gives you the 'munchies.' Suddenly, normal food starts smelling and tasting much better. There is a science behind this but we won't go into the details here. Just know that the brain is cheated to make you think that you are still hungry even when you are full, and glands are released to make you enjoy the flavors and smells of food.

Enjoy munching away on these foods with your partner. Just be wary of what you gobble down if you are checking your weight.

Cannabis Can Contribute to Better Sex

Smoking weed improves arousal and heightens your sense of physical sensation. When partners are smoking together, there are fewer inhibitions allowing them to to relax and enjoy each other a little more. Better sex results.

Cannabis Generally Makes You Happy

Smoking weed tends to put people in a good mood. People will find numerous ways to have fun when they are high and this will lead to a generally happy life. Happy people are able to start, grow and maintain meaningful and healthy relationships. You want to see your partner happy all the time and this could be a good starting place.

Cannabis Alleviates Stress and Anxiety

Some of the primary conditions people use marijuana to manage are stress, anxiety, and paranoia. When people are stressed out, they are bound to push this stress and anxiety onto the people closest to them creating points of agony, disagreements, arguments and even fighting. Break-ups have been recorded following such stressful instances.

Avoid being stressed out by smoking some weed with your partner. You will both be willing to sit and talk about what could be causing your anxiety and possibly find some common ground.

Increased Openness and Trust

Relationships thrive on the basis of trust and openness. If one partner doesn't trust the other, or if they're hiding something from them, the relationship will not last. Smoking weed allows you to have these deep and open conversations that increase the level of awareness and openness with one another. In turn, this creates some level of trust that is the glue that holds your relationship together.

Allows You to Get Along Together and With Other People

Smoking weed has a very calming and mellow effect on you and this allows you to get along with almost everybody. I will put a disclaimer here and state that this effect might not be the same for everyone and it depends on the kind of strain used. Mellow people are more enjoyable to be around and they are the heart of the party. They are understanding and willing to listen to their partners and others, strengthening the bond of love and trust they have already created. Smokers find that they find love among themselves easily because they are also open to give and receive.

Makes Chilling Out Fun

Just want to chill out and have some quality time with your partner? Have some weed together. Smoking weed relaxes the mind and allows you to have some fun together. There are various ways you can chill out and make the best out of an evening. Invite friends over for games and movies. Get some snacks and chill out the right way!

Have a Good Laugh

Smoking weed releases endorphins, something known as 'the feel good chemical.' This goes a long way in bringing much-needed laughter into your life. Humor is a great component in any relationship and a couple that laughs together finds ways to stay together. You know that weed decreases your pain and boosts the level of wellness and happiness in your life. It is time to be hilarious.

Have Pleasurable Moments and Experiences

Simple things in life are what determines whether one is happy or not. For instance, the capacity to take a walk, go on a hike, watch a movie, play a game or just hang out with your partner is a precious moment. Many people crave these kinds of moments. Find some time, light up a bud, stay indoors and just enjoy each other's company. You will cherish that moment.

There is no exhausting what kind of ways people can find love, happiness, and gratification in their relationship after they smoke weed. It's up to you and your partner to find out what clicks for you and enjoy a nice, healthy and fun, weed-filled relationship.

Cannabis for Beginners - What is an indica?


Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
