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

By Big Buddha

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 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 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 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.

    There seems to be a common misconception by a few posters in this forum that GMO farming has reduced the amount of herbicides sprayed on our corn, soy, wheat, and other major crops. (When in reality they have increased by over 400 million pounds since 1996)
    If you don’t believe it, here is the study that should convince you:
    It is based on USDA NASS as well as USDA ERS reports. This is not fringe science. It’s actual verified data presented (and peer reviewed) in the Journal of Environmental Science Europe, with the study conducted by Charles Benbrook, professor at Washington State University.
    Here’s a link to the study:

    Herbicide-resistant crop technology has led to a 239 million kilogram (527 million pound) increase in herbicide use in the United States between 1996 and 2011, while Bt crops have reduced insecticide applications by 56 million kilograms (123 million pounds). Overall, pesticide use increased by an estimated 183 million kgs (404 million pounds), or about 7%.

    Contrary to often-repeated claims that today’s genetically-engineered crops have, and are reducing pesticide use, the spread of glyphosate-resistant weeds in herbicide-resistant weed management systems has brought about substantial increases in the number and volume of herbicides applied. If new genetically engineered forms of corn and soybeans tolerant of 2,4-D are approved, the volume of 2,4-D sprayed could drive herbicide usage upward by another approximate 50%. The magnitude of increases in herbicide use on herbicide-resistant hectares has dwarfed the reduction in insecticide use on Bt crops over the past 16 years, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

    Hmmm is this just the health food lobby trying to trick stoners?

    • ty

      How dare they trick is into eating something we should’ve already been eating

    This does work.. I do it on occasion but it slightly alters the high making them more smooth and mellow and doesn’t just straight amplify the high. And it’s not just Mango. It’s high in mango but almost any citrus fruit has a very mild similar effect. Only thing I will point out is that you want a ripe mango. Most sold in stores are technically not ripe. They are usually two to three weeks from being ripe, left out at room temp.. They should be a little soft to the touch and not solid and you should be able to smell the mango through the skin and when cut it should be very juicy… As far as cutting one up, there are guides you can look up online for that.

    Mango Bellini – two cups mango chunks blended with two limes worth of juice, add a bottle of champagne . Stir , and enjoy.

    I don’t care about GMOs. I just ate spaghetti out of the can. Can we get back on topic. Does anyone have any links that seem reliable, please? It’s hard to find good sources on this topic.

    If no one responds, I’ll just buy a mango and try it and let you guys know my experience soon :)

  • Kieta

  • Dredge

    There’s a product called kannibliss that is made with mangos they sell it in Denver it’s supposed to make you higher and I heard the lady at the dispensary talk about how good it was. Oh and alot of starships and other headshops sell it in most states.

    has anyone tried pure myrcene? amazon has it and prolly most health food stores. the only number i’ve seen said that 0.5% occuring naturally in pot would be a high value. for a 1000mg joint that would be 5mg, a drop is roughly 50mg so 1/10 of a drop per joint for a ‘natural’ concentration – not much.

    how much myrcene in a mango? the only numbers i could find were for the herb thyme which can contain 40% myrcene. so if you eat a gram of thyme you could get 400mg myrcene. amazons 1oz bottle would be 28g pure myrcene for about $15.

    here are the kannibliss ingredients from
    (notice more pure myrcene than actual mango :-)

    Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCL) Proprietary Blend 658mg: 5 Hydroxy
    L-Tryptophan, Kanna Root Extract, Quercetim, Beta Myrecene, Hops
    Extract, Lemongrass Extract, L-Theanine, Mango Fruit Extract, Magnesium

    Melatonin, Other Ingredients: Filtered water, Citric Acid, Natural
    Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Bensoate, Sucralose, FD&C Yellow

    cheers everyone

  • JGarcia

    Just ate a mangoe, 45 mins ago – going to catch a buzz now – will report back on my findings…

    • JGarcia

      hmmm..actually, it maybe true. Kind of a more intense experience, feel a bit more…numb? There are so many variables that go into measuring the effectiveness, type of weed, time of day, how your feeling, etc etc – but…so far so good. Going to play my new SG guitar now;-)

  • sll1965

    Don’t let the government know or they will outlaw mangoes and throw
    you in jail for growing them.

    • T-dog

      Lmao right?! Smh. Yeah me and my boyfriend tried this and it definitely helps alot! We eat the actual fruit though. I think getting mango juice or a pre-made smoothie isn’t the same. ;) ….happy smoking!

  • 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.



    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.

    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


    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.

    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.

  • https://twitter.com/Moirraines Moirrainefortruth

    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.

    You need education – you will believe anything that fits into your mindset, not facts.

  • Moirraine

    You wouldn’t know pain from anger if it hit you in your gut.

    You are angry – angry that others can voice their opinions which may be against some insane values you hold that have no basis in fact.

    I am not angry – I am in massive pain from tumors. Go back into your cave and let us all know when you decide to be civil.

  • Jordan Philip

    And we want to hear about your tumours because you think we care? People get tumours all the time, it’s nothing special, nothing to spread all over the place or to feel proud over when you add it to the end of a statement or even to boast about as a response to an argument. ‘Hey guys look at me, I have a tumour so I’m automatically right about everything I say.’

  • mo

    All you seem to do is rant about having tumors while insulting others and their opinions voiced. Perhaps the growth of those tumors are starting to eat away at your common sense nodes.

  • leonffs

    And you will believe anything you read on the damn internet. What is your education? You sound like the same idiotic suburban moms that share foodbabe articles on facebook that have no fucking idea what they’re talking about when it comes to the scientific method.

  • mo

    Yes, food is 100% responsible for all your disease and discomfort. You really should just stop eating food.

  • mo

    You got all those great things AND still got all these illnesses?

    You want to feel better? Get rid of what you can’t really see, like oxygen.

  • Tigernan Quinn

    And all you do is attack poster after poster. I hope you get the help you clearly need.
