Cannabis and Intimacy - How Medical Marijuana Can Make this Your Hottest Winter Ever
As temperatures begin to drop and the new year looms, many singles are looking for a partner to keep them warm for the duration of winter - it’s called cuffing season for a reason! Those already in established relationships may find themselves in need of something to rekindle their passion.
Whether you’re looking for something new or to spice up a long term relationship, a Missouri medical marijuana card may be the spark (pun intended) that lights love’s flame. Cannabis has properties that can increase libido and sexual pleasure, reduce performance anxiety, and allow you to focus on your partner.
Marijuana Can Make Getting a Date Easier
I am one of those people who always had a difficult time getting the confidence to ask someone out. When I finally did get a date, my anxiety caused me to second guess myself the entire night, taking me out of the moment, which often made it difficult for me to connect with my date. This didn’t lead to a lot of second dates, which lowered my confidence even more. It’s a vicious cycle.
If you’re anything like me, you should know cannabis could be the key to improving your confidence and allowing you to stay in the moment while out with a romantic interest. Marijuana is known to ease anxiety and increase focus, helping you to be more outgoing when it comes to getting a date, and more relaxed and focused when you are out with someone.
In a nutshell, cannabis can help you feel better, which makes you think better. It helps you to be yourself and focus on the person you’re with.
Marijuana Increases the Likelihood of Intimacy
A recent profile in Marijuana Moment details a study that suggests marijuana consumption increased the likelihood of an intimate moment between romantic partners. The chances of this were even higher when both partners used cannabis. An “intimate moment” sometimes means sex, but can also include a loving interaction, such as cuddling, or a meaningful conversation such as as a heart-to-heart talk.
Marijuana Can Make Sex Better
This winter, the weather outside may be cold, but the inside of your bedroom should be hot. Medical marijuana might provide the very spark you are looking for. A recent study published in the journal Sexual Medicine indicates that marijuana use leads to more frequent and more satisfying orgasms.
The study participants, most of which were women, reported cannabis use before sex made them more than two times as likely to have an orgasm. If that’s not a ringing endorsement to get your medical card, I don’t know what is.
When it Comes to Cannabis and Sex - Communication is Key
It’s important for you and your partner to have a frank discussion about cannabis use when it comes to your sex life. This goes for whether or not just one of you is getting high or if medical marijuana is something all partners are partaking in. It’s important to make sure you’re on the same page.
Before introducing cannabis to your bedroom routine, discuss how marijuana makes you feel, both before and during sex. Cannabis affects people differently, so it’s important to talk about boundaries beforehand and check in throughout your intimate experience in case you or your partner's needs have changed.
Discussing your fantasies, what is on or off-limits, and your expectations ahead of time will allow you to focus on each other and know what each of you wants out of the experience. Have a plan in advance in case someone’s needs change. If one of you finds they have gotten too high, have a plan and take proper steps to take care of each other. If you set those expectations ahead of time, you’ll know how to make sure your partner is getting what they need, and that’s what true intimacy is all about.
Tips for Adding Marijuana To Your Love Life
Cannabis and romance? This could be the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Here are some tips to add cannabis to your love life:
Make a Cannabis-Infused Meal Together
Few things set a romantic mood like preparing a meal together. Light some candles, put on some romantic music, and prepare a dish together. There are several great recipe books filled with delicious meals that mix cannabis with cuisine. My favorite is The Cannabis Kitchen Cookbook by Robyn Griggs Lawrence.
Get in the Tub
Taking a bath with your partner is already a romantic activity. Consider taking things up a notch by stopping by a dispensary for some cannabis-infused oils to add to the tub. Combine them with CBD bath bombs to enhance the experience.
Netflix and Chill
Enjoy a movie together. Get high, dim the lights, and pop some popcorn. Then, snuggle up under a big blanket and just relax, enjoy the flick, and let cannabis take the pressure off.
Two Words - Gourmet Chocolate
Well, three words - Gourmet Chocolate Edibles. Kansas City’s world famous chocolatier, Christopher Elbow, is known for making delicious high-end artisan chocolates. He recently entered the cannabis industry, and is making gourmet chocolate edibles that are available at select dispensaries throughout the state. Next time you have a special occasion, surprise your partner with THC-infused chocolates that will knock their socks off.
Give a Gift To the Cannabis Lover Who Stole Your Heart
If you have an anniversary or special occasion coming up, or simply want the marijuana lover in your life to know how special they are to you, consider getting them something meaningful that will enhance their marijuana experience.
DID YOU KNOW? - There are dating apps just for cannabis users.
That’s right. If you’re looking for a partner that is 420-friendly, and don’t want to sift through profiles and then wait for the right time to bring cannabis up during an email or text exchange, you are in luck.
There are several apps and dating services exclusively dedicated to connecting cannabis consumers with each other for romantic relationships and casual connections. Among the most popular are My 420 Mate, 420 Singles, and High There.
