For those of you who live in a country that allows you to smoke Cannabis legally, you might have noticed that one of the many things that happen to you when you are stoned, is that you get the giggles?
This is generally evoked from something silly, either from a movie, or perhaps a daft noise that a friend makes. Generally, it can be something small that sets you off and you get caught laughing uncontrollably.
Like a yawn, it can be contagious and before you know it the whole room is in fits of laughter over very little.
Laughing is one of the best medicines as they say, so this is another benefit to Cannabis that is often over-looked.
After extensive research (by me), and hours spent down at the local library, sifting through medical journals and encyclopedia’s, I finally found some answers on Google ;-) (I’m allowed to use humour and smiley faces in this post about laughter, ok! ;-)
So, it is thought that the reason is to do with increased production of dopamine and serotonin, the happy neurotransmitters that elevate mood. There is continuing research on-going but for now this is the long and short of it.
This appears to be subjective and there is no definitive answer. It can sometimes boil down to who you’re with and what setting you’re in. That all said, perhaps you have a strain that makes you laugh more than others. We’d love to hear about it. Either drop it in comments below or jump on this Quora post I have put out there and help us come up with an answer:
With laws relaxing, people are now open to getting high on TV (for research purposes of course). Take a look at this clip from YouTube where a stoned CNN reporter caught the giggles (or the grins as some other people call it). Hilarious.
So there we have it. We can add laughter as a benefit of Cannabis, to the extensive list of other benefits - which can be things like; pain relief, asthma help, anxiety reduction, relief from arthritis, treatment of Crohn's disease, decreasing Parkinson's tremours and has been known to decrease cancer cell growth. (Why is this plant still illegal again)?
