How does marijuana works, makes you high:

The chemical substance responsible for getting you high is cannabinoids found in the flower of cannabis plant. cannabis is known to produce at least 140 types of cannnabinoids but cannabinoids that actually makes you high is called as “tetrahydrocannabinol” or THC.

In simple terms when you smoke weed, smoke goes into your lungs and airsacs present on the lungs absorb all the chemicals present on smoke. THC absorbed by the lungs is mixed into the blood which came from heart to take oxygen in lungs . when this blood returns to heart it is spread throughout the body. THC thus inhaled spread on body through blood circulatory syytem fair quickly and reaches the brain. In short ,In brain there are receptor present which recives the THC and you immediately get the feeling of high. These receptors are actually for reciving compound called endocanabinoids which the body produce itself. The endocanabinoid system is involved in several functions like stress, food intake , metabolism, pain etc. when endocanaboid system recives the THC it alters the neurotransmitter , change the perception of reality.
