Will Eating Mangoes Enhance a Cannabis High? How the Fruit Helps Smoking Marijuana's Effects
- Ad -

On top of being high in fiber, low in fat and full of vitamins, mangoes have anecdotal abilities that can enhance the ‘high’ effects of cannabis. If you are thus looking to intensify your cannabis experience, eating a mango before smoking could be all you need.

The theory is that by eating a fresh mango about one hour before smoking marijuana, the smoking effects will be intensified. It is also believed that eating a mango can make the buzz come quicker, and last it longer than usual.

How Mangoes Could Enhance the Cannabis High

A 2018 study shows that Mangoes contain higher levels of a terpene known as Myrcene. Myrcene enters the bloodstream after eating mangoes, just as THC does after smoking. When the two interact, Myrcene enhances the ‘high’ effects of THC.

With this, it does not matter whether you take a mango before or after eating – you will experience similar results.

Anecdotal evidence shows that the prolonged high that arises from combining the two causes a calm and mellow feeling.

The number of mangoes you need to take for you to feel this effect will be subject to factors such as your body weight. The quantity of Myrcene in one mango depends on where the mango was grown, how ripe the mango is, and how long ago it was picked.

Another paper by the British Journal of Pharmacology shows that Myrcene has anti-inflammatory effects that heighten when combined with CBD. This paper also shows that Myrcene can be analgesic and cause sedation after interacting with THC. Cannabis too contains Myrcene but in small amounts. Due to the sedative properties of Myrcene, it can lead to the ‘couch lock’ that many cannabis smokers experience.

Wrap Up

With the evidence at hand, it is clear that combining mangoes with cannabis can create a stronger and longer buzz. The science behind the sedative effects of Myrcene when mixed with THC also adds weight to these claims.

However, there is still a need for more research on the effects of myrcene and cannabis interactions.

Denis is one of the most experienced researchers for reviews we have with years of experience in writing about CBD products. He will be one of the most viewed authors due to his own thrill in sharing what he is learning about cannabidiol and supplement use. With a goal of providing clarity within the budding CBD oil industry, Denis will be spending much of the year going through a catalogue of cannabis oil companies in the near future.
