The psychoactive effects of cannabis can be wonderful. Sometimes even the most mundane activities are improved after consuming marijuana – movies are better, social activities more fun, dreary household chores suddenly become tolerable. And when it comes to romance… let’s just say that marijuana can offer a fantastic boost!
Of course, if you’re in an unhealthy relationship, you shouldn’t rely upon cannabis to improve or even save it. However, if you’ve found yourself in a hum-drum romantic routine, you may find that marijuana can help you in the following ways.
1. It’s a great anxiety reducer.
Anxiety can affect every part of life. When we feel anxious or tense, we are significantly less able to handle daily stressors in a calm, healthy, and loving way. We become irritable, less prone to affection, and unwilling to engage in intimate activity. If you find yourself becoming distant from your partner or quick to arguments due to stresses from work or elsewhere, using marijuana (whether you smoke, vape, or consume edibles) may help you relax, and enjoy your partner’s company.
However, it’s important to remember that marijuana shouldn’t be used as a crutch. If you are experiencing significant stress that interferes with your quality of life or your health, the best solution is to seek assistance from a mental health professional.
2. It can help lower inhibitions.
Not only can marijuana help relax you, it can lower some of the emotional barriers preventing you from trying new things. Whether it’s going on a spontaneous weekend getaway, or trying something new in the bedroom, you may find that you are more willing to participate in activities that you might ordinarily reject due to feelings of self-consciousness.
3. It can improve your sex life!
Not only can marijuana help you enthusiastically open up to new experiences, it can make those experiences incredible – and that includes sex. Cannabis has effective, natural aphrodisiac properties. Cannabinoid compounds influence our pleasure receptors and can stimulate the CB1 receptor, which regulates arousal and ecstasy.
If you want to see first-hand how marijuana might improve your love life, it’s important to experiment with different strains, as different strains activate different receptors. While you may have some reservations about using marijuana as a relationship enhancer, if you find that cannabis use helps the two of you to become less judgmental, more aroused, and happier in each other’s company, then the experiment will have been a smashing success!
