Mangoes and Marijuana
At first glance, it may seem like mango has nothing to do with marijuana, on the contrary, other than being jam packed with nutrients, eating mangoes happens to be one of the best ways to enhance the effect of marijuana.
“Mangoes and Marijuana is a match made in heaven!” Why? Because it has been scientifically provento make your cannabis hit you faster, stronger and it also makes the high last longer.
How does eating a mango assist your green?
Mangoes contain a terpene called β-Myrcene. Terpenes are the compounds that give things like mangoes, pine, your dank bud their distinctive odour. Myrcene is also found in hops, bay leaves, eucalyptus,and it is one of the most common terpenes in cannabis strains according to this Swiss study.
β-Myrcene has some very special properties, including lowering the resistance across the blood to brain barrier (BBR). This makes cross the BBR easier for β-Myrcene and other chemicals, in our case it’s THC, β-Myrcene makes THC take effect more quickly. Moreover, β-Myrcene has been shown to increase the maximum saturation level of the cannabinoid receptors, allowing for a greater maximum psychoactive effect.
Fun fact Thingy:β-Myrcene is known to be anti-tumour, anti-inflammatory. It is also used to treat insomnia, and spasms, pain.
That’s not all mangoes are good for, eating magoes:
- Prevents Cancer (A true partner for cannabis, it seems)
- Boosts the immunity system
- Improves digestion
- Promotes health sex
- Improves you eye health
Here’s how you can make the best out of the mango and marijuana combination:
According to Steep Hill Labs, a marijuana testing company, you should eat a fresh mango about 45 minutes before you plan on getting high for maximal benefits. However, this enhancing effect won’t always work for everybody, mangoes have been shown to have varied Myrcene content. We recommend going for the most fresh and ripe mango you can find, but there’s no sure-fire way of knowing, you may fail a couple of times before it actually happens.
If you’re planning a session to put you to sleep, we recommend using mangoes with milk, milk makes your high more mellow. A mango shake will be just the thing to take your late-night sessions to the next level.
For the Indian stoners, consider this a sign. It’s mango season, go out and buy some mangoes, try it. The least you’ll get is the delicious nutrients of the mangoes.
Writers note: “For “research” purposes, I did it.Fortunately enough, my first trial was a success. Being the impatient guy I am, I waited exactly 45 minutes after eating a mango. The first bowl was normal but mid-way through the second bowl it hit me, and it hit me hard. It was not like smoking up for the first time or anything, but it definitely was stronger and it lasted a lot longer for me.”
