 How marijuana can improve your social skills

Do you feel lost? Disconnected from the social life and habits, you were so accustomed to? You're not alone. Millions feel the same way. The pandemic upended our routines and made life awkward at best. The pressures of social distancing and isolation of remote work with the lack of simple facial expressions and not seeing a smiling face due to the mask mandate. With these mandates now lifted, society needs to adapt again. We need to reconnect and get used to in-person communication, but l this can be awkward given the past two years of upheaval.  

But don't worry -- cannabis can help you restore social norms. Here are a few ways cannabis can improve your social skills.


Cannabis improves verbal episodic memory.

Cannabis improves verbal episodic memory.

A study published in ScienceDirect showed that CBD could enhance verbal episodic memory. Verbal episodic memory is the ability to recall what others have said. Obviously, this type of memory can help you in many ways, such as when you're desensitized to face-to-face social interaction. Working alone at home and interacting only with your computer every day, you may not be used to hearing and processing text in the same way you were pre-pandemic. You may need to spend a lot of time processing what someone has said, leading to awkward conversations with you struggling to keep up.

Now, this is where marijuana comes in.

Cannabidiol can increase your verbal episodic memory and help you process verbal communication faster without awkward pauses. This allows you to remember the previous conversation matter and be able to smoothly move to the next part of the conversation. 


Marijuana can improve your speech fluency.

When interacting with others, a conversation is usually divided into two parts.

There is a listening aspect and a communication aspect. Without them both, there would be no dialogue or connection between people. 

You have to master both to be someone other people want to interact with; Cannabis can be an effective support tool to help you achieve your goals.

Cannabis not only increases verbal episodic memory but also improves verbal fluency. Verbal episodic memory is the ability to recall words, and verbal fluency is the ability to produce words. You need both to connect with others easily. Basically, this is why many musical artists or writers may consume marijuana to get into their "flow" state, in which words flow easily. 

With marijuana, your ability to communicate will flow, and people will be surprised at how eloquently you can speak.


Marijuana reduces your anxiety.

Being afraid of what we say, how we act, how we look, and what other people think of us can result in us not wanting to interact with others. When this happens, it's called social anxiety. It can be debilitating and make us not want to interact with others, which can be very unhealthy because social interaction is a human need.

Marijuana can help relieve anxiety -- THC and CBD in marijuana can cross the blood-brain barrier and trigger changes in brain blood flow associated with anxiety. This change in blood flow effectively reduces anxiety and helps us stay calm, relaxed, and engaged.

Using marijuana will allow you to deal with your own tension while having a conversation.


Cannabis product use cases to improve social skills

Depending on the situation, there are several ways to use cannabis products to improve your social skills.

The best cannabis products for social skills are mixed THC/CBD oils or foods. The reason is that oil and food take longer to digest and are slowly processed in the bloodstream throughout the day. Therefore, this allows cannabis to work for a longer period of time. The advantage of cannabis oil or edibles is that, depending on the dose, you can continue with your daily routine without feeling intoxicated.

However, if it's a social event, party, or concert, you may want to have a smoke beforehand. Smoking or vaping will get the cannabinoids into the system as quickly as possible. Then, you're free to enjoy the even as you'll feel relaxed when socializing with reduced anxiety, and spending time with others won't be as awkward.
