What does eating a mango before a smoke sesh actually do?
The terpene that is present in mangos is myrcene and myrcene works on the same receptors as cannabinoids do. When the two (cannabinoids, myrcene) team up on the receptor, they create the ultimate smackdown. This allows cannabinoids and myrcene to create what is called the entourage effect, which impacts the psychoactive effects. Mangos were shown to shorten the onset, increase the duration, and amplify the effects felt by the high.
Not to mention the benefits of mangos themselves! Mango’s have shown to be greatly beneficial for our digestive health. One study stated that mangos are such a powerful anti-oxidant and help reduce inflammation in our gut that is commonly associated with colon, rectal cancer, Inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, anti-diabetic effects, and is a powerful anticancer.
