These tips should help you find a happy medium in no time.
Falling in love with someone who doesn’t approve of your cannabis use can be a sticky situation, and those conversations can either be incredibly beneficial or leave you swiping through Tinder.
Most of us have been there before; if your partner isn’t happy with your cannabis habits, here are some helpful tips on jumping that hurdle, keeping your partner happy, and continuing your cannabis use without a screaming match.
When you end up dating someone who’s not so fond of your cannabis use, chances are they’re worried about your lung health. If that’s not the case and they’re worried about your mental health and possible risk of addiction, listen to their reasoning for why they hate to see you use weed.
Perhaps your family has a past with addiction, and your partner is simply looking out for you. Acknowledging and understanding your partner’s concerns is essential to help you get to the core of the issue; why do you use cannabis?

This brings us to our next point. Find out exactly why cannabis use helps you and why you choose to use it. Cannabis is legal for medical use in 38 states, and whether you’re a recreational or medical user, there’s no denying that the plant offers valued and positive health benefits.
If you’re prone to anxiety, stress, and depression, explain that to your partner and allow them to see your vulnerable side, this may open their mind to other reasons people use the plant.
As noted above, a compromise tends to help most relationships when one party isn’t fond of cannabis consumption. Maybe your partner doesn’t mind you smoking but is worried about how much money you’re spending on weed. Or maybe they don’t want to see you smoking at all.
We suggest you have a conversation about how both of you can find a happy medium, whether that’s consuming edibles over smoking, reducing how much you smoke, etc.
