Many stoner couples claim that the quality and happiness of their relationship is intensified by their third lover— Mary Jane.
In fact, the healing powers of cannabis go beyond treatments for insomnia and other chronic pain, according to a new study that suggests that cannabis is actually correlated to happier relationships.
Do couples that smoke together, stay together?
The University of Buffalo School of Public Health found, in their study published in the journal Psychology of Addictive Behaviours, that married couples who smoked weed together were less likely to become violent towards each other.
Researchers note, however, that marijuana’s physical effect on the brain is not the only factor, as couples who toke together most likely have a common set of values and hang out with similar types of people.
We came up with 5 reasons why weed can help a relationship:
1. You’ll have better sex.
Studies have shown that marijuana can amplify sexual pleasure, and who doesn’t want that, right? Great sex is a solid indicator of a great relationship. Why not try it out and smoke a doobie together after sex if you want to keep your intimate senses intensified and feel the ultimate post-climax relaxation. If the whole point of sex is to pleasure your best lover, why not extend those feelings of intimate bonding and make each other happier and healthier.
2. You’ll fight less.
Weed is known to make you forget things, so it’s a lot easier not to sweat the small stuff that might cause you to pick a fight. Marijuana’s anti-anxiety properties can be key in allowing couples to focus on what matters: Having fun together and enjoying each others company.
3. You’ll enjoy your time together.
You can eat edibles and watch movies on your couch. You can snuggle in a cozy hotbox zone. You can roll up and go on a hiking adventure. You can just relax enough to enjoy pure happiness together. You can have amazing sex. You can be each other’s hypemen. You can worry less. And that might just make both of you a lot happier and better to be around. Thank you cannabis!
4. You will be more active.
Typical out dated stoner logic says smoking weed will make you lazy and put you on your ass, but studies now show that cannabis is actually part of an active and healthy lifestyle. Activity is a key ingredient in facilitating the release of natural endorphins in your body, and cannabis has been shown to increase that release.
5. You’ll make a deeper connection.
Couples who use cannabis in their everyday life say that their lives are a lot more laid back and easier. That’s because marijuana is known to activate your endocannabinoid system, which stimulates your appetite, pain-sensation, memory, and mood. If you find your perfect product or dose, weed can really help you connect with your partner on a whole different level.
