Does Marijuana effect dopamine?
    #8908741 - 09/10/08 09:08 PM (5 years, 11 months ago)

I'm a long time toker but still haven't figured this answer out.

I've read some articles that say marijuana releases dopamine and I know the main part of getting high happens because of the cannaboids or wtvr attaching to your cells.

I don't have the link right now but I remember reading an article that said that small doses of marijuana can reduce depression and smoking large amounts can have the opposite effect and actually increase it.

I know some might dismiss this , but it kind of makes sense, on days when I don't over blaze I feel happier kind of but when I have huge ganja sessions, I feel burnt out and kinda lazy after (even as a daily toker) but for that reason this kind of makes sense to me, and don't get me wrong I still love blazing non stop every now and then.

To sum it all up, does marijuana have an effect on dopamine levels?

THC does release dopamine indirectly as you're undertaking a behavior that's pleasurable, which thereby activates the reward pathway in your nucleus accumbens.

I don't think this is enough to explain the burnt-out sensation after smoking large amounts of ganja, though.

No,

from what I understand dopamine release doesn't play a role with THC, the Anandamide neurotransmitters do.
