Many people enjoy consuming cannabis while throwing back a few alcoholic beverages. But what’s actually happening when you get high and drunk at the same time? You feel lit, of course. However, there’s a little more to it than that. Although alcohol can indeed increase your high, it can also cause some serious health problems. Be sure to check out the video by AsapScience to learn what happens when you get drunk and high at the same time.
Chances are you have consumed cannabis at least a time or two while drinking alcohol. But have you ever thought about what happens when you’re drunk and high at the same time?
In general, alcohol affects your central nervous system by changing how your neurons communicate. Moreover, it suppresses the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate and increases the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA.
As a result, you are unable to process information as quickly and appear to be more “slow.”
On the other hand, cannabis contains THC, which acts on the brain’s cannabinoid receptors and causes some neurons in the brain to continuously fire, which removes their average refractory period and magnifies your imagination.
Since both cannabis and alcohol inhibit glutamate transmission, which plays a vital role in your learning process, combining the two can cause poor memory.
However, cannabis and alcohol will make you feel lit. In fact, studies show that after taking two shots, the THC levels in participant’s blood plasma were double in comparison to those that were high with a placebo drink.
In other words, alcohol makes you higher.
