Spicing things up in the bedroom takes more than just setting the right mood sometimes. Getting into the right mindset to have some good old-fashioned bedroom fun can be a daunting task if you have a lot on your mind or are battling chronic pain. Thankfully, cannabis can help you take the edge off and improve your ability to communication with your partner better inside and outside the bedroom. The aphrodisiac effect of cannabis works wonders in the bedroom, adding to your excitement with your partner which can even cascade into other facets of your life.
Be a More Open and Communicative Partner With Cannabis
The mood elevating effects of cannabis have been shown to help individuals overcome their daily stress load and give them the opportunity to be a more humorous partner. It can help you relax and become more outgoing with your partner due to its relaxing qualities. If you’re constantly dwelling on your chronic pain, cannabis can help to alleviate that pain while also working to ease any stress that you’ve been ruminating over in your daily life.
If you normally have a sunny disposition on life and the best intentions, but feel blue, cannabis can help to get you out of a rut and help you become the happy partner that you are trying to be. By balancing your mood and lessening your pain symptoms, it can work wonders on your relationship with your partner. This alleviation of pain and stress for one partner will alleviate the same anxiety that the supporting partner has been experiencing, thereby promoting a sense of calm for both parties. This residual effect of cannabis can be invaluable to your relationship and free you from your unconscious shell to become a more open and communicative partner.
Tackling Daily Responsibilities with Ease
If you’re at the stage in your relationship where you’re living with your partner, you will inevitably need to do your share of household chores on top of your other daily responsibilities (work, bills, pets, etc.). When you’re living together, things like dishes, laundry, and chores are going to make up a lot of the time you spend together as a couple. If you’re not able to tackle your share of the chores, it can lead to stress and tension between you and your partner.
Cannabis can be the solution you’re looking for if you find that you can never muster the energy or motivation to do your chores. It can make doing chores fun by opening your mind to different ways to fold laundry, stack dishes, mow the lawn, wash the windows, or other dreaded mundane chores. Doing your share of the chores and showing that you’re having fun in the process will show your partner that you care about holding up your end of the bargain with chores to make more quality time with them. What you two choose to do with this newfound quality time is completely up to you, but one thing you could do is…
Perform Your Best in the Bedroom
Giving it your all in the bedroom may be easier said than done if you have a mental block, pain, or just lack the energy or motivation to put any motion in the ocean. This is where cannabis comes in handy. A recent study found that simultaneous marijuana use (male and female partners reported use at the same hour) increased the likelihood of an intimate experience for both men and women. Furthermore, the U.S. National Survey of Family Growth studied more than 50,000 people in 2017 and found that cannabis users have sex more often than non-users.
Cannabis has been shown to ease performance anxiety in both genders, elevate levels of arousal, and bring a whole new level of excitement to your bedroom. It also appears to improve sex for women as it positively affects their sexual experiences by increasing their ability to have satisfying orgasms. If you plan to toke up before taking a roll in the hay with your partner, make sure to pay attention to your strain, dosage, and timing. If you take too much, it may cause sedation paranoia which can take attention away from your partner. Try to find what works best to help relax you and make you more open to sensations and less inhibited with your body. Fight the urge to super stoned once you start because if you go that route, you won’t be able to concentrate on your partner and connect with them in the bedroom.
