Studies have shown over the years that cannabis use can actually improve the bonds of your relationship, whether it’s improving your sex life, or just helping the two of you get along better. Not to mention it makes cooking a meal together a lot more fun. But guys, gals, and enby pals, what do you do when your partner hates weed? How do you even begin to deal with that?
Be Respectful of Their Beliefs!
First and foremost, if your partner hates weed, you need to be respectful of their beliefs. A huge part of a relationship is supposed to be mutual respect for one another, otherwise there really isn’t much of a point to the two of you staying together, is there?
So, how do you best show your respect for your partner’s beliefs, while still remaining true to your sativa loving self? The best thing to do is not rub your love of the plant in your partner’s face. You should avoid doing things like smoking or vaping in front of them, unless of course they say it’s okay. This is especially the case if your partner is sensitive to the smell, or even allergic. Surely you can manage toking up in the other room? Relationships are all about compromise.
It is important that you respect your partner’s beliefs, but it is just as important that they respect yours as well. Compromise is a part of any good relationship should not be expected to compromise the person that you are. Your partner does not have the right or ability to ban you outright from smoking weed. You are after all, a grown ass adult and old enough to make your own decisions, especially when it comes to things you’re putting in your body!
See If You Can Reach an Understanding!
What is the reason your partner hates weed? Did they have a bad experience smoking it one time? There was that story she told about eating too many edibles that one time. How could you forget about that story? She loves telling that story to people at parties and it’s gotten to the point where you could tell the story yourself, you’ve heard it so many times! If this sounds like the situation that you are in, you may stand a good chance of converting your reluctant partner from the dark side. Explain that things have changed a lot since the first time they tried eating edibles (or however they tried cannabis). Stress that edibles and other such things now have to adhere to very strict safety regulations and everything is packaged into very precise doses. You just might make some headway! Remember though, respect those beliefs! Some people are just not meant to try cannabis and that is okay!
If Nothing Else…You Might Have to Break Up
I’m not saying that you should break off your relationship, but if you are not able to come to any sort of compromise or understanding, it might be time to call it quits. Do you really want to spend your free time arguing about smoking weed all the time? Wouldn’t you rather just smoke it all day? You could start by trying to find someone who wants to share your bong with you.
