Spending time chuckling lifts you up and science confirms it is good for you. Studies confirm laughter is good for you and has a clear impact on the physical and mental state of mind.  For some people, and at times most people, laughter doesn’t come near enough. Science confirms it is important and marijuana helps it come more naturally.

The good thing with laughter is it has short and long term benefits.  Some of the immediate perks includes the cooling down your stress response resulting ingood, relaxed feeling and lower blood pressure. This also stimulates circulation and aids muscle relaxation, both of which can help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress.

Longer term effects are even more beneficial.  Negative thoughts manifest into chemical reactions that can affect your body by bringing more stress into your system and decreasing your immunity. By contrast, positive thoughts can actually release neuropeptides that help fight stress and potentially more-serious illnesses.

Laughter may ease pain by causing the body to produce its own natural painkillers.  Additionally many people experience depression, sometimes due to chronic illnesses. Laughter can help lessen your stress, depression and anxiety and may make you feel happier.

The “imagine” of stoners usually involve laughing and giggling. THC, the primary psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, can increase dopamine transmission. The boost in dopamine production increase the euphoric and happy feeling, leading to spontaneous and robust laughter sessions.

Spontaneous laughter differs significantly from self-induced laughter. The former refers to “genuine” or unforced laughter, often in response to a stimulus, whereas the latter describes laughter that is simulated de novo. Spontaneous laughter is often associated with positive mood, whereas simulated laughter is primarily physical and is not necessarily associated with positive emotions or feelings.
