mangoes and marijuanaMangos Increase, Strengthen, And Even Lengthen The Euphoric Feelings Felt After Smoking Marijuana

By Big Buddha

Summary: The chemical compounds that have been found within mangos 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 well 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 mangos 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 mangos. This is why these types of plants 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 mangos have been properly digested and will have an effect.

What else is great about this interesting scientific fact is eating mangos 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.

    #funfact

    • Devin

      I’ll stick with Twinkies and potato chips. I have a feeling that in the future scientists will discover Twinkies also increase, strengthen, and even lengthen the euphoric feelings of Marijuana too lol

    ..the Reason for this “MostLikely” IS That Marijuana Is A Very Powerful Hallucinogen * More So Than Most People Are Aware, because it is Not Experienced as such in most people that SMOKE It ~ Burning It destroys the Cells / Molecules / that Combined with the THC Empower the Hallucinogenic Qualities of this “MasterConsciousness” (for those of you stuck in the “I need proof /science of Non-EXPERIENCE) ~ so Yes Lemon juice DOES Work, but lemons are so Potent You can’t get as much of a Terpene Dose with Lemon Juice as you can with Mango .. But Orange Juice Has Often been used for the Same Purpose With LSD .. And other citrus fruits/ juices. I tested this with Marijuana 20 some years ago, by just drinking orange juice and also eating an orange, and it Works! It brings on the Hallucinogenic Properties of Marijuana in A Faster and More concentrated Manner! ~ This works So Well, as a matter of fact, that I would Not Recomend Trying It To An Inexperienced User of Hallucinogens ~ That Includes Marijuana!!! ~

      Hallucinogen?

      Right. Whatever.

      • Jaynay

        Marijuana is classified as a mild hallucinogen. It isn’t the kind of “blow your mind” type of high, but still in the same category. Jay

        • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

          Those who purport that cannabis is a “hallucinogen” are not very educated at all.

          Oh and the guy below me? Must be drunk… These are the ones who are dangerous in our society, disordered thinking, destructive actions, murder, blackouts, pills added to liquor usually a very nasty combination and not a single “medical” use unless we run out of drugs to numb the body and mind.

          They can “classify” it all they want, but that’s not going to change the fact that the psychoactive properties are slim to none.

    GMO mangos will give you cancer over time just like any other plant soaked in Roundup Ready.

    Go Organic. Make it real.

    • ShaneJax

      Spread some more FUD please. Do you just make up your own facts? There are no GMO Mangos for sale anywhere in the world but nice try. Kind of difficult for a non existent thing to be a causation for anything except placebo effects, that and a idiot magnet.

        They exist. Hide your kids.

        GMOs do not give you cancer. They contribute to a lack of both biodiversity and sustainability in the food market. That’s why we rail against them. Know what you’re arguing for.

        • dfgdfg

          you know theres only been one study on humans about gmos? and it found they change our dna. making a claim either way is wrong: both of you are pseudoscientific. the only scientific answer is we dont know, and there is cause for alarm.

        • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

          You have no idea what “GMO” means in this context.

          We’ve been “modifiying” foods forever – we graft one plant onto another and make a stronger plant.

          GMO in THIS context is the addition of poisonous chemicals – the makeup of which has destroyed crops and soil and BEES worldwide.

          Roundup Ready and all the other poisons slathered onto our crops are destroying the good bacteria, good bugs and good anything – it kills all and doesn’t discriminated between good and bad – they just KILL.

      • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

        You really are a sicko.

        I am ill – as in very ill – and I have hot tumors all over and in my body.

        If you ever took antibiotics over time like most ear infection babies (ad nauseum) you are primed for an invasion of bacteria that will cause you more pain and suffering than you can possibly imagine.

        I’ve had an open spine – that’s more pain than most can handle – one must be put on a morphine drip to even TOUCH the pain and I have 3/4 of that pain in many areas of my body, spine and kidneys.

        Roundup Ready can’t be separated from the plant that grows in it.

        BPA in cans except Eden Foods – will destroy your immune system and your intestinal tract.

        Between the toxins and the antibiotics that 90% of all Americans consume, most are very likely to be in my position sooner or later.

        You need to learn about your own body and the toxins that jerks are putting into them without your knowledge, consent or care – pain isn’t fun.

    • charleston

      typical GMO alarmist. I eat organic, farmers market produce, and conventionally grown and they are all safe. it’s best to support your local economy and buy local etc. but non-organic food will not slowly give you cancer, that is just pseudo-science.

      • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

        Alarmist?

        You don’t have tumors that scream when eating anything that has toxins in it – I do.

      • I don’t know what to choose

        there is a HUGE difference between GMO and conventional/non-organic. conventionally grown produce can be sprayed with all sorts of industrial chemicals that are some how considered legal. ShaneJax below me says that there aren’t even any GMO mangoes. my girlfriend also claims there is a different taste. I’m guessing what the produce is grown in and with will result in a difference in the taste and nutritional value.

      • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

        “GMO” isn’t the problem, it’s the chemicals that keep those frankenstein foods “alive” that you can’t wash out and that WILL accumulate in your fat, muscle and bones.

    • steve-o-imawileboy

      Organtic mangoes are more likely to cary deadly parasites because theyre not soaked in that delicious Roundup Ready. Oh and not to mention the taste exactly the same and Organtic costs way more… here, Penn and teller will drop some some knowledge on your on your head for you.

      • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

        What a freaking liar.

        First, there is no proof that a SINGLE mango is grown in Roundup Ready (my comment above is a cautionary one, not any admission or thought that mangos are in that category, there are enough foods that ARE…)

        Organisms?

        You EAT organisms every single day that keep you HEALTHY to counter the things that you eat that are DANGEROUS to your cells.

        Sad that people like you drag others into your lies.

        Wash your darn food… give me a break.

    • slfheinn

      Well, that’s why you smoke weed. To destroy cancer xD

      • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

        It doesn’t destroy what I have.

        Cancer may be an end product of lupus or sarcoidosis and even sleep apnea and many other conditions, but I don’t have that yet according to those who believe they are medical experts – medicine is falling apart in this country and people seem not to care.

        I am not a hippy.

        I have lupus, sarcoidosis, sleep apnea (not fat – there are two “types” I have both) and many more conditions that destroyed my immune system.

        Calling anyone names is part and parcel for those who can’t and won’t understand science.

  • Jefferey Burnside

    I tried dried and not much of a difference they say fresh and I agree I think they lose the chemical in the drying process.

    “This is why these types of plants of such rare and unique types of odors and aromas.” I found that part especially enlightening.

  • Jessica Makowski

    Like Orange juice or oranges vitamin C w lsd intensified highs

  • Bleh

    I drank like 1/8 of a bottle of naked juice – green machine – and I was fucking blasted to the moon. I’ve smoked like 20 times before, so I have some tolerance but even with tolerance and the weed being schwag to mid, the mangoes and possibly some other ingredients in the juice 100% contributed to a high that was double to triple the normal experience.

  • Ho Lee Fuk

    Cool, now mangoes are going to be commercialized. We’ll soon have mangoes in rap videos.

  • Kym

    This article was very interesting… but it was the comments that really got me… Moirrainefortruth, I truly hope you get better and feel well… the idiots (Thomas Wilkerson, Kalous & Matthew) can go to hell… where ignorance can be bliss… dumbasses… a mind is a terrible to waste as it is, you guys just epitomize the saying…

  • ShaneJax

    Like I said. Idiot magnet. There doesn’t appear to be any gmo mango’s in field trials much less in production anywhere in the world. So el whiny el sicko one do you have any evidence there are gmo mango’s in the food supply? Here are two effectively anti gmo databases and neither of them mention mango’s as a product that have any gmo crops anywhere.

    http://www.gmo-compass.org/eng/database/plants/53.mango.html

    http://cera-gmc.org/index.php?action=gm_crop_database

    So please provide a source that there are GMO mangos in the marketplace or even in a field trial… oh wait, you can’t because there aren’t any… But carry on ignorantly spazzing at someone online while either completely ignoring the truth that was said or just having too little intellect to understand basic points.

  • insaf adelyah

    YOU ARE CORRECT! I lived in the US and had stomach issues. I went overseas and lived in an agrarian society where chemical pesticides are expensive to use. So people use natural methods to eliminate pests. My stomach issues were gone for the entire time I was there – 10 years nearly. Now back in the US and gastro issues rearing its ugly head again. I try to eat healthy with 7 servings at least of veggies and fruits. but I am not so sure these aren’t the reasons for the decline in my health back on US soil. It’s one step forward and two steps back for humanity with the crud profiteers running corporations and killing people for a bigger yacht!

    Stay organic and get a ten stage filter for your water AND

    AND

    Get a sprite shower filter to remove chlorine from your shower.

    Yes, you can use your handheld shower handle after the filter – I do.

    You want to feel better? Get rid of what you can’t really see but your body can surely feel.

    I am in pain 24/7 but it’s far worse when I don’t stay away from toxins and bad water.

    Bingo.

    Calling me a hippie up there in the comments above you is part and parcel of the “education” we are accepting from those who do not care and will not care about those who are harmed by the chemicals our “leaders” allow in foods that they won’t touch with a ten foot pole.

    Mentions mangos – hello, please wake the heck up.
    Whether they are using Roundup Ready or not, any “conventional” foods are now suspect on what they DO use to “keep pests away” – and any substance that a plant is grown IN can NOT be washed OUT or OFF.

    The flesh of a plant is much like a human, once it ingests whatever it is fed, it becomes PART of the plant.

    Organic isn’t the “best” it’s the “cleanest” – the “best” would be God sending food that man can’t contaminated.

    Growing your own indoors or under controlled circumstances such as a greenhouse are equally safe as you control the food’s composite – and with worm tea, I haven’t had bugs, disease nor funguses on the BAG GROWN tomatoes I set out almost a month ago from seedlings.

    Nothing but worm tea and 10 stage filtered water… pretty cheap investment for a healthier diet and all plants can thrive on so little there is no reason NOT to grow your own food where you can.
