4 Ways Cannabis Improved My Love Life
Your friendly 4/20 life coach has some advice
If you haven't heard already, there's a new marijuana movement growing. And unlike the stoner culture associated with words like weed or pot-nicknames its members prefer not to use in an effort to elevate the conversation around cannabis-this community is all about exploring ways the plant can help you live a healthier life-from deepening your detox to relieving pain and anxiety to combatting PMS, and even taking your runner's high to new heights. (Something I've seen firsthand, as a Harvard Business School grad-turned-founder of Cannabis Feminism.)
Cannabis can also help when it comes to matters of the heart, says Molly Peckler, a 4/20-friendly life coach and dating expert who encourages people to use the herb as a confidence booster in the bedroom and beyond.
Specifically, Peckler says there are four ways cannabis has improved her love life-and could potentially improve yours, too.
1. It makes me a way more sensitive partner
"Cannabis broadens my perspective and allows me to be more compassionate and empathetic toward my husband. I'm a lot more logical and rational, rather than controlled by my emotions."
2. I've become more open to experimenting
"Using cannabis with [my husband] gives me the courage get out of our routine and try new things."
