Everyone has their own unique relationship to the cannabis plant, but if you’re in a relationship, the frequency with which your partner uses cannabis can have an effect on you. If you think your partner uses cannabis too heavily (or could benefit to use it more), talking to them about it might be a tough conversation. On the one hand, you don’t want to be accusatory or prescriptive, and on the other, you want them to have a healthy relationship to weed.

Before you broach the topic, ask yourself some questions to determine if it’s appropriate to bring up.

How do you think your partner’s cannabis consumption might be interfering with your relationship?

Do you find it difficult to connect when your partner is too high? Do they prefer to spend time smoking alone than with you? Do they avoid responsibilities when they’re high and does that frustrate you?

Is your partner accomplishing their goals?

Is cannabis helping them be creative, or is it a crutch? Are they productive when they’re high, or should they cut back to evenings and weekends? Is cannabis improving their life?
