If you're swiping through your dating apps in hopes of finding a friendly suitor to spark some love today, there are a few things you should consider before you ask them to burn. First things first: Do you even want to get high with them?
Best all-encompassing service
To answer this question, you should do some introspective pondering about why you like to smoke weed, says Molly PecklerCEO of Highly Devoteda cannabis-friendly coaching and matchmaking firm. Maybe you smoke recreationally before you go out, and like to be high in social scenarios.
Perhaps you smoke pot every night to fall asleep, because it makes you lethargic. Or you could be someone who really loves smoking and will only be with someone else who smokes, too.
More from sex & relationships
Figure that out first, then take your potential partner's pulse on their weed use. Mention a weed-positive story that you read recently ahemlike, Did you know that some weed strains are deed to make people orgasm better? Or, slightly less sexually explicit, Did you hear those stories about how cannabis is being used to treat epilepsy?
There's a good chance that, from there, you'll jump into a conversation about your own weed habits. If you like to smoke, just be honest about it with your potential partner, because there's nothing embarrassing about smoking weedshe says. Once you get over the stigma, according to Peckler, weed could potentially bring you closer to your partner particularly in the sex department if you both enjoy it.
Our top 11 picks
If your date is a planned sex date, weed can absolutely make it way better for some people, since it's an aphrodisiac, Peckler says. There are even some lubes with marijuana in them that can also enhance your experience, and the orgasm-weed-strain-thing is also true. A lovely romantic gesture might be to bring a t to your date, Peckler says — but again, make sure you're partner is into smoking weed first.
If you're worried about getting too high with your new partner, you could also try a vape pen she suggests hmbldtwhich has set dosages and an interface that makes it clear what kind of high you're going to getbecause they tend to give you a more subtle high.
You could also share an edible, she says. But some people do get paranoid and weird when they're high, in which case you should just be smart about which strain of weed you're smoking and how much you're smoking. So if you know that smoking sativa strains make you very chatty and creativebut indica strains make you become part of your sofa, go for the one that you know will make you comfortable with another person.
60 marijuana, weed, and pick up lines
And if it's your first time smoking, you might not want to do it on a first date, Peckler says. It's also better if you smoke together and make it an activity, rather than show up high on a first date with no warning.
Even if you don't have access to fancy weed products because you live in a prohibition statesmoking is an activity that a lot of people find fun, and being high might be the push you need to feel more relaxed on a first date that would otherwise make you shook. If you want to smoke on a first date, you do you — just make sure you've planned somewhere delish to go tend to your munchies afterwards. Refinery29 in no way encourages illegal activity and would like to remind its readers that marijuana usage continues to be an offense under Federal Law, regardless of state marijuana laws.
