In other words, is there a chemical impact caused by THC which could be activating neural correlates in the insular cortex (ic) of the brain?

The increase in the sensory activating system-dopamine caused by THC as seen in previous researches (doi: 10.1038/nature20153) can be damaging the neural correlates between regions of the brain associated with feelings.

The IC is not the only part of the brain that contributes to feelings, the hypothalamus and the brainstem do, however, the addictive behavior of individuals is mainly caused by problems to the ic.
