Many people who have family members or friends who take cannabis, wonder, “What does it feel like to be high?” Although the experience varies among individuals, most cannabis connoisseurs described their cannabis experience as “euphoria”. 

“Euphoria” can be a very abstract term, we have interviewed many cannabis lovers and they were able to provide us with more exact explanations about the “euphoria”: 

  • It reminded me of the time I was in love for the first time when I was in school. It’s like a fist ripped through my chest and gripped my heart - Mike T. 
  • Similar feelings of physical and emotional pleasure from a perfect sex!  - Stephanie A. 
  • It is like I have made it to the marathon finish line. It’s an incredible uplifted and happy feeling  - Jay D. 
  • The happiness of living in the moment and forgetting everything else. - Victor W.

As for how the “euphoria” is produced, there are currently two main explanations:

  1. The reward mechanism from the brain - dopamine;
  2. The endocannabinoid system.

Many articles attributed this “euphoria” come from the release of dopamine. However, there is not much research to support this theory. More research has found that the endocannabinoid system can better explain where the “euphoria” comes from.

Shortly after scientists discovered THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in cannabis, they found a chemical similar to THC structure in the human brain. It is called endocannabinoids.  “Anandamide”, a part of the endocannabinoids system, is taken from a Sanskrit word “Ananda” meaning “joy, bliss, delight”. It enables the endocannabinoids system to control human perception of happiness, so it is also known as the “bliss molecule”. Given that THC and Anandamide share similar properties, consuming cannabis by smoking, or vaping creates similar effects within seconds.  When we feel love, enjoy food, do yoga or after a long run, our body will also release the anandamide and therefore experiencing the “euphoria”. That well explained the responses listed earlier. 

Based on the research, the “euphoria” is coming from our daily mood adjustment mechanism, instead of the dopamine release. The “euphoria” generated by cannabis has very low low risk for physical or psychological addiction. 

If you want to enter the state of euphoria through cannabis, we have few tips for new users. First, pick the right cannabis strain for you. Second, adjust your mood before consuming cannabis - give yourself a safe and comfortable environment so you can completely relax yourself. Last, if you are a first-time user, start from a small amount. It won’t get you high, but it can maintain your beautiful emotion for a good amount of time. It has great benefits for reducing stress from daily work and life.
