What Marijuana Actually Does To Your Brain Proves Humans And THC Are Kind Of Made For Each Other

Smoking weed has a number of side effects, from making smokers feel euphoric, relaxed, and even hungry. But what marijuana does to your brain specifically is more complicated than just taking a few puffs and listening to Incubus.

The feeling of being high is one of the more natural drug interactions that the body can have. There are specific neurotransmitters in the brain that are receptors for the active ingredient in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Once it is smoked, marijuana binds to cell receptors in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which amazingly covers, not just the brain, but the entire body.

Your brain on marijuana is a curious thing, and the science behind its interactions with the body is widely misunderstood. So read on to discover some of the little-known facts about pot, and its effect on the mind.
