Why Mangoes Should Be Every Chic Stoner’s Fav Food
One of the downfalls of being a regular pot smoker is that you have to deal with the munchies from time to time.
No matter what or how I’m smoking, I tend to keep fruit and low cal things on hand in case every time I smoke a new strain. You never know when a tsunami of hunger can strike.
But one of my fav foods has always been mango, especially after smoking.
It tastes so f*cking juicy, and considering it’s fruit, it’s good for you too. However, there actually might be another reason why I tend to gravitate towards mango when high.
That’s because mango can actually increase your high, and the proof is in the science.
Myrcene is the specific name of the terpene in mango that gives it that delicious smell.
But wtf is a myrcene? They are little aromatic carbon molecules that produce certain smells. Think of it as a type of essential oil, and myrcene is also found in the marijuana plant. It’s responsible for creating the certain aromas of marijuana, like pine, berry or pineapple.
On a cellular level, myrcene increases the ability of your body to absorb certain things, like cannabinoids. So basically, the potency of the pot, when combined with myrcene from mango, is increased.
So not only is mango good for you and delish af, it’s also lit!
But in order to get the most optimal high, you should eat a ripe mango 45 minutes before smoking. You can even eat mango after smoking if you have the munchies, and it will still increase your high.
