Couples may have differing perspectives on medical cannabis and the roles it serves in their lives.  

It is important to realize that not everyone that uses medical cannabis has the same experience, so greet your spouse’s skepticism with understanding and a desire to educate. 

Currently, medicinal cannabis is legal in 35 U.S. states, with California being a pioneer of the industry since 1996. Millions have already been certified, with that number increasing each year, and with more patients comes a more researched and refined medical marijuana program.   

When discussing medical cannabis with your spouse, put into context how it can improve your quality of life. Communicate ways in which medical cannabis supplements lifestyle changes or improvements you plan to make, such as sleep, stress, or diet. Ensure your significant other that this will become a balanced part of your routine. 

If your spouse fears you are not treating your body with respect, be sure to communicate the benefits of medical marijuana that first appealed to you.  Doing so can help him or her understand how it can improve your quality of life, and therefore both of yours.  Use this opportunity to make a positive change in your lives together. Additionally, products sold at state-regulated dispensaries are both legal and consistent in quality, so their safety is not something to worry about.
