Getting the giggles is one of the more enjoyable outcomes of getting high. We have compiled the top 5 cannabis strains known for boosting your mood and inducing some serious giggle episodes.

The giggles are without question one of the best outcomes of getting high from some good quality cannabis flowers. Have you ever been sitting around with your friends, passing joints and hitting bongs, only for one person to make a joke that results in seemingly endless laughter? This sensation seems to be contagious, an eruption of giggles that causes fellow stoners in the room to grip their torsos and fall off the couch in a fit of comedy.

But why exactly does cannabis have this effect? Well, there appear to be multiple factors influencing this phenomenon. For one, cannabis has been shown to enhance blood flow to certain areas of the brain including the cerebellum, right frontal lobe and left temporal lobe. It just so happens that the right frontal lobe is associated with appreciation of humour. Could this be the link between cannabis consumption and the giggles?

Giggle Areas Of The Brain


Other reasons why cannabis may cause this boost in laughter is due to neurotransmitter release. Every smoker is aware of the lift in mood that cannabis is capable of creating, due in part to the production of endorphins and dopamine. These neurotransmitters are associated with feelings of happiness, increased mood, reward and satisfaction. It is easy to see how cannabis could incite outbursts of laughter when taking this into consideration.

Cannabis is also associated with reductions in stress and anxiety. It could be this relaxing and chilled-out effect that manages to get people in the mood for laughing, expanding their perception of humour.

If you are smoking with the aim of relaxing and having a good laugh, consider lighting up one of the strains below to stimulate a glorious fit of the giggles.
