Not only are mangoes high in Vitamin
C, they could be the secret to unlocking marijuana’s true potential.
Summary: 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.
Lately it seems that both the science
community and the marijuana community have been falling into the same category.
This is great news for both medical marijuana patients and recreational
marijuana smokers alike! Of course it’s common knowledge that medical marijuana
does exist and that it is a great natural remedy for aches, pains, and various
ailments. And of course recreational marijuana smokers do enjoy the euphoric
feelings of the herbal supplement as opposed to the feelings of intoxication
caused by alcohol or liquor. So naturally marijuana is a safe alternative to
most sinful pleasures as it is a perfect organic solution to the stresses and
pains of life. So here is a little secret that the science community has
recently discovered for the marijuana community: Eating fresh mangoes or even
drinking a fresh mango smoothie one hour prior to smoking will dramatically increase
the euphoric feelings felt by marijuana and help medical marijuana patients to
ease their pain even more so.
This is because a 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
are 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.
Individuals who have eaten a mango,
digested it, and then smoked have also noted that the euphoric feelings felt by
marijuana are alarmingly much more intense. This is perfect for medical
marijuana patients who would like an increased amount of pain relief or for
recreational marijuana smokers who just want to get even higher than before. It
is important to also note the different speeds in metabolism for those who are
attempting to try this experiment. This is because individuals who have faster
metabolisms may need to ingest a bit more than those who do not have as fast of
a metabolism as well as individuals with slower metabolisms may need to ingest
a mango or mango smoothie up to an hour and a half prior to smoking. This will
help ensure that the myrcene terpenes found within mangoes have been properly
digested and will have an effect.
What else is great about this
interesting scientific fact is eating mangoes is another great way for the
human body to receive additional amounts of vitamins and nutrition and it helps
individuals avoid eating foods that are high in cholesterol or trans fats.
Eating too many fatty foods when the ‘munchies’ occur can be harmful and even
detrimental to an individual’s health. So be sure to stay healthy and to eat
healthy whether smoking marijuana recreationally or medicinally.
