If you smoke marijuana than you know that it can send you into a fit of uncontrollable giggles, energize you, sedate you, and even make you hungry. The thing is that not all weed strains are created equally, so the majority of those listed side effects are not exactly consistent across various cannabis products. Laughter is based on the social aspect of conversation and is very rarely induced by something funny. Scientists and researchers firmly believe that humans laughing predates any other form of language that we are aware of. It is a happy sensation that triggers the release of chemicals that stimulate the brain. Though we seem to know a lot about why laughter might exist (as an ancient form of communication), we aren’t sure why some marijuana strains are more likely to induce a fit of giggles instead of a slumber. So far there are a few theories that are believed to impact how different weed strains will interact with an individual.
8. Blue Diesel
BLD is an Indica dominant hybrid weed strain that is a cross between Blue Dieseland NYC Diesel. This one provides a long lasting and uplifting high that is known to make users laugh uncontrollably without any sedative sensations to bring you down. The taste and aroma is a deep rich berry flavor with a hint of diesel fuel.
1. Kali Dog
This Sativa dominant hybrid is a cross between SourDiesel and OG Kush with a perfect hint of Indica that provides the most uplifting effects. It contains a taste and aroma that is citrus and is often comparedto lemon.
Chemdawg is used by many famous artists and musicians for its unique and uplifting effects that help to stimulate creativity. This even 50/50 hybrid is a cross between OG Kush and Sour Dieselwhich are two other laugh-inducing strains. The taste and aroma is a light earthy and piney profile.
Every human being is equipped with an endocannabinoid system that will interact and process cannabinoids that are introduced to the body. That system is responsible for communicating with and processing the cannabinoids that our bodies naturally produce to elevate and regulate our mood by releasing chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin. Consuming marijuana will have that same effect as it interacts with the brain to make you feel good.

Knowing that laughter is contagious and that cannabis consumption is largely a communal activity, it makes sense that when you and your friends are getting high together, you’ll be more likely to catch the laugh bug if your friends have it, too. It’s one of those one-person-laughs-so-everyone-else-laughs sort of things.
W hile there are many “stoner stereotypes” that are obviously false (that stoners are lazy, for example. The cannabis industry alone has disproven that one), there are some descriptions of stoners that are absolutely true. One of which is that they love to laugh and will do so often.
But what is it about a stoned brain that makes it so easy to “have a laugh” (which is what the Beatles used to call “getting high”)? The answer could be due to a number of factors.
If you’ve ever felt like you have a little comedian in your head cracking jokes while you’re high, you’re not alone. Many of us notice a humorous twist on mundane tasks after consuming some of that “wacky tobaccy,” which can likely be linked to a phenomenon called “Detached Perspective,” or an ability to see the world from an altered perspective. This term, coined by authors Potter and Dan Joy, suggests cannabis allows us to interpret our surroundings and experiences differently than we normally would, thus encouraging us to see the world in a very Mitch Hedberg sort of way.

Anyone who’s ever been high or even been around someone who is high knows just how easily laughter can come to a stoned mind. And though science is vague in regards to why exactly that is, many speculate a number of factors including more abstract thinking patterns, increased dopamine production and reduced sensitivity to negative stimuli. But whatever the reason is that marijuana makes us laugh, I’d say the side-effect is well-worth having.
It happens primarily in the right hemisphere of the brain (where cognitive processes like perceiving sarcasm or understanding poetry occur) which seems to get an extra helping of blood-flow during a cannabis high. This is likely one reason cannabis improves creativity for many people but may also be the cause of the sudden giggle fest you and your friends are having, too.
Another theory that could explain why marijuana makes people laugh is the fact that cannabis improves the mood of most of its users. This euphoric effect is one of the most common reasons people choose to consume cannabis and is a natural precursor to a good time. When someone consumes a mood-elevating substance (or exercises or successfully completes a daunting task), our brains release dopamine, or the “feel good” hormone. When we feel good, laughter comes much easier. This is also why cannabis can help treat depression and reduce pain perception in many consumers.
