What is a euphoric high?

Euphoria ( /juːˈf?ːri?/ ( listen)) is an affective state in which a person experiences pleasure or excitement and intense feelings of well-being and happiness. Certain drugs, many of which are addictive, can cause euphoria, which at least partially motivates their recreational use.

So, what can cause euphoria?

Exercise also causes feelings of euphoria when the body depletes its glycogen stores and then releases endorphins. Drugs that cause feelings of euphoria frequently act directly on dopamine levels. Manic states brought about by bipolar or cyclothymia often cause periods of euphoria followed by feelings of depression.

What are the 4 types of drugs?

The different drug types include the following:
  • Depressants. Drugs that suppress or slow the activity of the brain and nerves, acting directly on the central nervous system to create a calming or sedating effect.
  • Stimulants.
  • Hallucinogens.
  • Opioids.
  • Inhalants.
  • Cannabis.
  • New psychoactive substances (NPS).
