Do mangoes increase marijuana high?
Based on my own experience, smoking pot increases food enjoyment and the number of times I eat each day. But I didn’t know before that mangoes can actually enhance and lengthen a stoner’s weed high.
From The Weed Blog:
The chemical compounds that have been found within mangoes have been discovered by science to be able to increase, strengthen, and even lengthen the euphoric feelings felt after smoking marijuana. This is great news for the marijuana community for both recreational smokers and medicinal smokers as they both now have a healthy alternative snack to turn towards during their munchies.
The chemical compound known as myrcene terpenes, which is most often used for fragrances, can be found within cannabis and marijuana as well as many other various plants such as lemon grass, hops, and of course mangoes.
This is why these types of plants of such rare and unique types of odors and aromas. Once ingested the chemical compound, or myrcene terpenes, assists the psychoactive substance THC by allowing it to pass through the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) at much faster speeds with much more efficiency. The time it takes for the THC to have an effect on the brain after inhalation is roughly seven seconds however, by eating a mango up to one hour prior to smoking the time it takes for THC to reach the brain and have an effect could be cut in half. As well as the length of the high and its time duration could be up to twice as long.
After reading the post from TWB, I lighted up a fattie, smoked the sh*t, and devoured five ripe mangoes instead of french fries. The euphoric feelings I felt are much more intense (from my calculation about 20% higher ). But don’t just take my word for it, try it yourself.
