Well, the explanation is quite simple. Because we have cannabinoids in our brains, and marijuana is largely made up of cannabinoids, it interrupts the neurological process that is happening in the brain. Neurons are what are responsible for thoughts, and cannabinoids are usually responsible for turning off this process after a neuron is fired. That basically means that when you smoke weed, neurons are firing in your brain like crazy, and your thoughts can become rapid and amplified.

If you have a crazy or anxious thought, it can be extremely hard to let go of it. This is because under the effect of marijuana, the thought is magnified. It can have the opposite effect on others because of a different balance of cannabinoids in their brains.
