And we understand that navigating cannabis etiquette is crucial to ensure an unforgettable experience for both of you. This article will explore the dos and don’ts of navigating cannabis on a first date and provide tips on asking and communicating preferences respectfully.


Respect Boundaries

No matter what, boundaries are something to be respected above all else. But with cannabis, be extra transparent with yourself and your new date about your limits, and don’t try to push them. It is totally okay and normal for the two of you to have different tolerance levels. Before assuming your date’s comfort level with cannabis– talk about it. This communication will help set the foundation for a positive cannabis-enhanced experience.


Consider Consumption Methods

Choosing the right consumption method can be a fun activity for both of you! Picture this, you and your new bae taking a long romantic walk to the dispensary– now make it happen. Between pre-rolls, vapes, edibles, dermal patches, and cannabis-infused drinks, the options truly are unlimited. Consider where you will be spending your first date; in some cases, more discrete options. 


Open Communication

Before your date, talk about your favorite activities to partake in while smoking. That way, if the two of you prefer something more relaxing after smoking, you can find a drive-in movie or a picnic by the beach/park. Or if you like something more active, you can find an amusement park or go on a hike.


Navigating cannabis etiquette on a first date is about creating a positive and respectful experience for both partners. Respect boundaries, consider consumption methods, share responsibly, be mindful of dosage, practice responsible consumption, and maintain open communication. Incorporating these tips into your cannabis-enhanced first date allows you to create an enjoyable and memorable experience while setting the stage for a deeper connection.
