Increases activity in the brain

Depending on the balance of THC and CBD in your cannabis strain, it will affect your levels of serotonin, dopamine and hippocampus. All these affect your mood and trigger your relaxation. And research suggests that receptor activation by plant-derived cannabinoids can promote hippocampal neurogenesis, or the regrowth of neurons. In this sense, they prepare you to appreciate and open up to broader sensory experiences. This interruption forces music listeners to record thoughts at a different rate than normal, preventing you from anticipating them and helping them to enjoy the music note to note.
