5 Ways Smoking Marijuana Can Make You A Better Parent

We don’t normally associate parents with smoking marijuana, and when we do, we think of them hiding it like a deep dark secret they never share with anyone, least of all their kids. Times are changing and so is the world. Wouldn’t it be awesome if parents and their kids were open about the things that they enjoy and had the ability to share that with each other? Who says that’s impossible?

Here are 5 reasons why smoking marijuana can help you pave your way onto becoming a better parent:

Marijuana is a very malleable drug, capable of affecting you in different ways. Depending on your mood and the time of day it will produce drastically different reactions. Many people vouch for their morning smoke, claiming that it gives them much more energy than coffee. Sativas are known for producing very energizing and creative highs; take advantage of them.

Be The “Cool” Parent

For real. Your kids are going to be super proud that their parents are in tune with their youthful side and that they don’t care what other parents think. Marijuana will also help you be more relaxed and will give you some perspective for those moments when you’re super stressed or angry.

Marijuana makes you joyful and giggly, which is something that you don’t associate with “old people.” It also relaxes you and makes you less uptight, which your kids will love. All of these traits will make you a more understanding and welcoming parent, someone who they’ll turn to when they need some advice or simply want to have a conversation. 

Sleep Peacefully
