The Science Behind Mango and Weed Myth

Many people swear that weed and mango makes them higher for longer, but how does it actually work? Mangoes contain a nice little terpene called myrcene that interacts with THC in a specific way that we think you'll enjoy. There are many positive effects myrcene can have on the body, including increasing the maximum psychoactive effect received from THC. This is due to the increase of maximum saturation levels in your body's CB1 receptor. Myrcene is also known for its anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory effects, as well as its effectiveness to treat spasms, insomnia, and pain.


Eating a Mango Before You Smoke

There are a few different ways you can use the glorious power of the mango to your advantage. The first of which is by eating a mango before your smoke session. This will help to increase the level of intensity you experience from your high. Eat the mango before you smoke, during the smoke session, or after you smoke. No matter when you eat the mango, you’ll still get the myrcene in your body, which will help make your high stronger.

It can’t be mango-flavored juice or a mango-flavoured candy; it has to be real mango for you to get the myrcene effects.
