Cannabis users show higher levels of empathy

Rewrite in english this title Cannabis users appear to be more empathetic

A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience Research found that people who regularly use cannabis tend to better understand the emotions of others.

This was apparent from psychological assessments. Brain scans also showed that the anterior cingulate cortex of cannabis users, a region generally affected by cannabis use and linked to empathy, had stronger connectivity with brain regions associated with sensing others’ emotional states in one’s own body.

The study involved 85 regular users and 51 non-users who underwent psychometric testing. A subgroup of 46 users and 34 non-users underwent an MRI examination.

Cannabis and social interactions

“These results open an exciting new window to investigate the potential effects of cannabis in supporting treatments for conditions involving deficits in social interactions, such as sociopathy, social anxiety, and avoidant personality disorder, among others,” said co. -author Victor Olalde-Mathieu, PhD, of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
