Mangos Can Drastically Improve Your High If Consumed 90 Minutes Prior To Medicating

Although it hasn’t been proven by scientific fact, recent trends have discovered that there’s a fruit that might unlock marijuana’s true untapped potential — mangos. Again, while there hasn’t been any studies conducted regarding mangos and marijuana use, marijuana smokers have recently been consuming a mango just about an hour before lighting up in hopes of boosting their high.
While I reiterate that this is not set in stone, apparently eating fresh mangos or even drinking a fresh mango smoothie one hour prior to smoking will have a dramatic effect on your high. This is because a chemical compound known as myrcene terpenes – which is most often used for fragrances as an essential oil – can be found within cannabis as well other plants such as lemon grass, hops and, of course, mangos. This compound is responsible for dramatically increasing the euphoric feelings felt by marijuana and could even play a beneficial role in allowing medical marijuana patients to ease their pain even more than they did before.
Cannabis is known to already contain more than 100 terpene molecules, all of which are responsible for affecting THC’s effect on the brain. However most interesting is that marijuana contains the myrcene terpenes more than any other kind of molecule. So in turn, it does make sense that if you were to eat a mango that is rich in myrcenes, you would have the ability to potentially improve the high associated with low-quality buds or even enhance the high-quality bud that you already have with an extra kick.
(Above: While marijuana smokers used to utilize oranges and other fruits packed with vitamin C to enhance their high, it seems as if there is now one major solution: mangos! Eating a mango just about an hour-and-a-half before medicating can drastically increase the high that you experience.)
Myrcene is also responsible for allowing THC to pass through the blood brain barrier on a much faster basis. On average, it is said to take THC around seven seconds to reach the brain after inhaling, but if you were to eat a mango or drink a fresh mango smoothie just about 90 minutes before toking, you could potentially take that amount of time and split in half. Who would’ve thought fruit could really improve your high, right? While many believe in the power of vitamin C to increase a high, this really brings fruit into a new perspective.
Mangos are also been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers, as well as lower a patient’s cholesterol, clear up their skin and promote eye health. Looks like it’s about time you got your hands on some mangos.
