Lots Of Americans Plan To Use Or Give Cannabis For Valentine’s Day
It seems people’s attitudes toward weed really are changing and new research reveals just how much. Forget the roses, a different kind of “flower” is becoming more popular for Valentine’s Day this year, as 61% of American adults plan to incorporate cannabis into their holiday plans.
According to a new study of 963 U.S. adults over 21:
- 37% say they’d be happy to get cannabis as a gift for Valentine’s Day.
- Many folks will be giving or using pot with their partner for Valentine’s Day and 19-million adults will be skipping the alcohol and using cannabis instead.
- Nearly one in four adults believe cannabis improves their sexual performance.
- Men are more likely than women to bring marijuana into their Valentine’s Day plans, 66% of men versus 57% of women.
- Gen Z and millennials are more likely than Gen X and baby boomers to include cannabis in their holiday, 70% compared to 57%.
- Surprisingly, parents are more likely to use or give pot than their child-free peers.
Sex therapist Ashley Manta has an idea why moms and dads are more into giving or using cannabis for Valentine’s Day than those who don’t have kids. “When I work with parents in my coaching practice, one of their most common areas of concern is struggling to shift out of parent-brain and into partner-brain,” she explains. “Parents are still people in a relationship, and the relationship has connection needs that benefit from intentional effort and prioritization.”
