#598878 Do you get a bigger 'rush' with a bigger tolerance?

Posted by wai on 03 April 2012 - 04:49 PM in Hot Talk

I know that the brain releases endorphis when you eat something spicy but I can't figure out if the endorphin release is from the percieved pain or from something like a physical reaction between the capsaisin and pain receptors. I find that I enjoy peppers more with a high tolerance but it could be either because I'm not distracted from taste with pain or if I get a bigger endorphin rush. Any thoughts on how building up a tolerance affects your experience?
