We’re learning something new about what happens when you combine a popular fruit with marijuana – And boy, is it sweet. Don’t grab your winter coat just yet, we’re about to get tropical with Marijuana and mango’s.
You Have to Try Marijuana and Mango’s
If you’re an avid toker, adopt mangos as your favorite fruit – Immediately. Many are starting to claim that the combo of eating a mango while medicating can lead to a faster, stronger, and longer lasting high. That’s right, the similarities in the chemical makeup of mangos and the marijuana flower produce an intensified, and more “high” feeling of, well, being high. Not only is this tricky to eat, but oh-so-tasty treat outright delicious, it contains Myrcene, the terpene responsible for giving mangos their unique smell. Where else do we find it? Cannabis. A recent Swiss study that examined 16 different strains of cannabis showed that Myrcene was the most common terpene found in each plant – Our main connection that begins to explain why mangos can get you up-up-and-away-higher.
To test the theory, it’s suggested that you find the ripest, ready to eat mango out there and indulge about 45 minutes before you plan to puff. Wow, that really is a good idea, isn’t it?
Does it work? There’s only one way to find out. I mean they’ve been using Myrcene rich plants for therapeutic purposes in Brazil for the longest time. They’ve shown to help as an anti-inflammatory, a natural sleep aid and even provide relief for those suffering from diabetes. Combining mango and cannabis has been shown to cut down the time it takes your body to absorb the THC from 7 seconds to only 4; which if you think about it, is kind of awesome. Regardless if you actually notice a difference in your high, mangos are the business, and actually pack some pretty amazing health benefits. Known for preventing cancer, improving digestion, lowering cholesterol and even helping you concentrate, this healthy fruit is worth the work it takes to peel and slice – Not to mention they make a mean smoothie.
