WHY COUPLES WHO TOKE TOGETHER, STAY TOGETHER:
How to Have A Happy Herb-Infused Relationship

Isn’t it mind-blowing that approximately two-thirds of couples end up splitting nowadays? Perhaps a little herbal bonding over the peace pipe could help.

It’s true — toking can do more than ease anxiety and give you the giggles. In addition to leading to more fun in the bedroom, the habit can help a budding romance blossom and lead to deeper understanding.

Before we dive into the ways a touch of herbal delight helps keep the love alive, here's a quick list of couples activities that complement a couples sesh:

1. Pick a theme and dive into a movie marathon
2. Take a stroll through the neighborhood
3. Go for a hike to get the endorphines flowing
4. Try a new restaurant for a flavorful adventure
5. Make your own herbal recipes at home

It lowers anxiety levels

It's easy to let the stress of life's other obligations seep into your relationship. How many times have you been stressed out and taken that frustration out on your significant other? While it happens often in many relationships, it doesn’t have to be the norm. “Waking and baking” on weekend mornings and dabbing with your partner before bedtime can help both of you relax and squeeze in a laugh before drifting off to sleep.

Imagine going on a hike, passing the vape pen with your hunny. Most likely, you couldn’t help but tune into the chirping of the birds, the unhurried way water trickles down the mountain, and the feel of sunshine kissing your skin.

Now, consider how fun and carefree you’d be vaping at home, perhaps with the popular Volcano vaporizer over a Netflix binge with your significant other. In the moment, it feels as if your worries can wash away knowing you can always come home with your loved one at your side.

When we take time to luxuriate in the present, stress levels decrease. When both parties are calm and collected, it becomes easier to communicate and see the other person's point of view.

It Spurs Deep Conversation

One of the unique effects of consuming dry herb is its ability to propel conversation. Ingruiging convos are bound to get bubbling as you pass a Marley Naturals Bubbler.

Rather than gossip about drama at work or make small talk about the weather, bond over topics like where you want to travel, whether we'll see people living on Mars in our lifetime, what values are most important in a person.

The answers to such questions are likely to have you and your loved one on the same page, building trust and mutual appreciation for each other's minds.

A common interest also keeps the conversation flowing over cool pipes, new vape technology, and all the innovative industries now booming.

You and Your Partner Will Fight Less

No one likes to fight — especially with their significant other. Fortunately, this ritual you two can bond over is her to help...

According to this study, a steady stream of flowers is directly correlated to happier marriages. Researchers studied over 600 couples for this project also found that partners who toke together have less violent relationships.

Why would getting baked improve a relationship? Though there is no definitive answer to this question, some theorize it is because those who prefer botanical healing/self-care/routines tend to be happier people, in general. Furthermore, they tend to be more in touch with their emotions. As a result of both of these factors (and possibly, many more), they are less “reactive” in the face of conflict.

Rather than erupt at their partner when accused of something (such as forgetting to take out the trash), they will consider their significant other's point of view, accept their role in the discussion, and participate in a resolution.

It Leads to More Pleasurable Experiences

One of the reasons so many people are unhappy in their relationship is because they were taught to desire and appreciate “things,” rather than people, opportunities, and experiences. It’s hard to break out of this mentality, but a certain flower helps with this.

After inhaling a dab from this bee-themed rig, your attention will be brought to the present. Unencumbered by to-do lists and self-doubt, you may focus on the tasks — and playful adventures — at hand.

Whether you decide to re-watch Game of Thrones with your lover, spend the night at a concert, or go on a spontaneous road trip, you can be assured the night will be a fun one. When you’re in a peaceful, positive mindset, every experience is more pleasurable.

It Propels Personal Growth

Everyone has problems. And when you bring two people with problems together, there will undoubtedly be fights. But fights aren’t always a bad thing. In fact, sometimes, they reveal what you need to work on to be a better person and lover.

Before a conflict arises, consider hitting a bong with your partner to reduce stress. Then, take time to meditate on your own, either in stillness or perhaps while doing an activity (such as walking, hiking, or jogging).

You may be surprised to find that your brain works differently and that it is easier to piece together the puzzle of “you” — and maybe even your significant other. From a place of empathy, consider how you were conditioned from a young age to behave the way you do, and how your upbringing or personal convictions affect your relationship. Then, apply that wisdom to strengthen your relationship.

Be open and honest with your partner, and trust them to do the same.

It Makes You Both Happier

Happiness, you say? Yes, this is a “side effect” of implementing natural herbs into your regime.

Relying on nature’s goodness is proven to benefit post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain, as well as combat depression. Plus, holistic remedies are non-habit forming and boast fewer side effects than what is typically recommended.

With fewer issues and the freedom to explore the world with your partner, how could either of you not be happy?

Toking makes date nights more fun

It Makes Date Nights More Fun

Buh-bye, boring date nights. Hello, escape rooms and cross-country travels. While you and your partner may not be ready to pack everything you own into an RV and hit the road, chances are if you toke, your evenings out and in are more creative than others'.

This is because waxy extracts tend to make people more creative. Some nights, you and your partner may want to put on a TEDx Talk while you complete a puzzle. Other days, you and your hunny may want to take a picnic to the top of a mountain.

There are limitless ways to enjoy life. Couples who toke together are well-acquainted with this fact.

Toking together sparks fun conversations

It’s a Conversation Starter

Have you ever been at a party or mixer and run out of small talk? Rest assured, the conversation will not stay quiet when you mention that you and your partner de-stress with sweet-scented flower.

All of a sudden, you may find that people bombard you both with questions, such as “Which products should I use?” After sharing your depth of knowledge, you would go on to mention that you and your love adore Sherlock Pipes (they’re so fun, why not!).

Surprised by the attention yet elated with the stimulating conversation, it’s possible you and your lover would feel closer than ever (and far less bored).

Puffing with DopeBoo products makes you more resiliant

It Makes You More Resilient

Relationships are strengthened when there is something to bond over. Bounce back from a rough spot with a puff from the peace pipe. This tends to help you exhale the tension and inhale the love. As a way of sitting together through the hard feelings, an herbal routine between lovers is likely to bring you closer and let you appreciate how far you've come.

Puffing together will make you a power couple

It Might Even Make You a Power Couple

Because waxy extracts enhance creativity, couples who are highly motivated may excel in the workplace.

Just imagine how fresh and alive you'd feel delighting over each other's accomplishments with a big inhale from the Battleship Water Pipe. Perhaps you and your partner could follow it with some light yoga or a refreshing walk. In a calm yet focused state, you'd feel so motivated to check off your entire to-do list.

After kicking butt at work all day, nothing would feel better than inhaling a high quality herbal blend through a high quality vape to satisfy your relationship's top shelf standards.

Life is better when you and your significant other are in a good place. While there is more to maintaining a happy relationship than toking, dabbing, or vaping, it’s a good place to start if you’re having trouble communicating or seeing eye-to-eye.
