5 Ways Cannabis Can Add Spice to Romance

Are you looking for a way to make your sex life more exciting? There's a good chance that you've already read about trying new things but we're thinking we might just have one of the best suggestions – cannabis. Whether it's a single night of passion or a way to add more spice to your relationship with your significant other, cannabis might be more than enough to do the trick!

We're not kidding – weed actually works for some people. The question is how it works and how you can make the most out of your weed to get the most satisfying results. What makes weed actually work? To answer that question, you have to understand what's in the weed and what it does to your body.

Meet your Cannabinoids

Before we get to the weed, you must first get to know your body. Your nervous system has a set of receptors known as the ECS or endocannabinoid system. The ECS has receptors that interact with cannabinoid: CB1 receptors are located in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, and other related body organs, while CB2 receptors are mostly found in the immune system and other cell tissues related to the immune system such as the thymus gland and spleen. The ECS uses cannabinoids to affect different functions of the body such as sleep, anxiety, appetite, and sensitivity to pain.

In addition to the human body, cannabinoids can also be found in the cannabis plant. In fact, there are 66 types of cannabinoids that can be found in a cannabis sativa plant. These compounds can be classified into several subclasses, and two of these stand out in particular: tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) and cannabidiols (CBD). When you consume cannabis, these two types of cannabinoids interact with your ECS, causing all sorts of effects, some of which are key to why weed can add spice to your romantic life.

1. Cannabis Starts You at a High Note

Depression can ruin more than just a romantic night. According to statistics, depression can even increase the chance of you and your partner breaking up. While some cases of deep depression require long-term management, light or moderate cases can be improved with a little bit of weed. Many cannabis consumers say that weed helps them get in the mood during events they would normally pass up on because they're too depressed or stressed to get into it. How does weed make this happen?

According to studies, one of the most common causes of depression is stress. When you're feeling down, your body produces fewer cannabinoids, wreaking havoc on your behavior, emotion, and even sense of judgment. Marijuana's abundant THC and CBD content compensates for the low cannabinoid production while also causing the signature relaxing effect often associated with getting high on hemp.

2. Cannabis Lets You Try Out More Positions

There are a lot of times when adding spice to romance means trying out new sexual positions. Unfortunately, some positions can be very difficult if you are suffering from muscle pain in certain parts of the body such as the arms, legs, and core. Even if you manage to get in position, the pain might be severe enough to limit your endurance, resulting in a (very) disappointed partner.

Medical marijuana has always been a popular choice for people suffering from migraine and those dealing with chronic muscle pain. The CBD in marijuana helps your muscles relax and relieves their tension, while the THC works on the nerves and reduces the amount of pain that you might feel. In short, cannabis gives you a lot more options in bed that you would normally not try out.

4. Consuming Cannabis is Fun

Romances are a lot spicier when both you and you partner are having fun. Getting high on cannabis is a pretty entertaining experience. It doesn't take a genius to conclude that getting high while doing it can be one of the most fun things you can do on a romantic night together.

Aside from the usual sensations associated with being high, one of THC's psychoactive effects can make you both feel more mentally active. Conversations just start flowing, and you find yourselves more easily entertained by even the littlest of things. You may also feel more inquisitive and start thinking of other ways to explore your sexuality. With cannabis, things become a lot more comfortable, and a lot more fun in general.

5. Cannabis Can Be a Couple Thing

Romance is a lot more fun if you can easily relate to your partner. That being said, one of the best ways to relate to your significant other is to share a common interest. This is one of the main things about consuming cannabis that goes beyond its physiological effects on your body – turning it into something a couple can bond over.

It's a simple concept - there's a lot going on about cannabis as a hobby AND as a culture. You can toke together, sure, but beyond that, there are things such as cultivation or conversations about which marijuana strains are better. You can even bond over something like collecting different pipes or bongs, or work together to figure out the latest cannabis cookies or brownies for your next session.

You don't need a Ph.D. in relationship matters or a sexual guru just to add spice to your romance. Sometimes, just a little bit of help from Mary Jane is more than enough to do the job.
