Have you ever wondered: Why does Mary Jane make you laugh?
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 26 April, 2020
Do you notice that when you are at your best or are high, sharing with your friends or just enjoying a good time with your partner, your sense of humor changes and any reason makes you laugh?
This is due to the many ways cannabis cannabinoids interact with the brain, causing you to laugh.
While it is not unreasonable to say that cannabis changes the way we think, science has found that it doesn’t actually alter the structure of our brains. Instead, cannabis tickles the funny bone, increasing blood flow, stimulating neurotransmitter activity, and increasing reflex activity.
We clear you of doubts and explain WHY?
Firstly, the use of cannabis has been shown to increase the blood supply in certain areas of the brain. It is increased in the cerebellum, the right frontal lobe and the left temporal lobe. It is the right frontal lobe that is of particular interest, as research has shown that it is linked to the appreciation of mood, so it makes sense that stimulating this part of the brain would make us much more susceptible to laughter.
Secondly, the use of cannabis also stimulates the production and release of extra dopamine and endorphins. These chemicals make us feel fulfilled, satisfied and happy. Dopamine, in particular, is the neurotransmitter associated with the happiness and satisfaction we feel when we eat, fall in love, exercise, or just about anything else that is a rewarding experience.
Thirdly and finally, laughter is contagious, and when the two factors above are combined, it is very difficult for us to resist laughing as a reflex action. This effect is increased when you are smoking with other people. It is known as fatuous laughter, and it means laughing for no apparent reason, similar to how tickling makes us laugh, although there is nothing funny about it.
You know the 3 reasons why you laugh at your high or just laugh your jerk things.
The happiness of a good high gives you the best moments!
