Mangos increase your high (apparently)

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by andrewlang16, Aug 13, 2012.

  1. That's good to know man, thanks for sharing it.

    Would drinking mango juice or mixed tropical juice that contains mango do the same or similar then?
  2. They also make you poop a lot.

    Have fun on the bowl, hitting a bowl.
  3. ^ dafuq?

    as if mangoes weren't already one of the tastiest of them all, now this. fuckyea
  4. Thanks for sending link juice to a weedblog... 100002348th mango thread
  5. @footbag well obviously some people didn't know about it so I thought it was worth posting
  6. The pre-smoke mango thread comes up every few days! :smoke:

    There are hundreds more, these are just a few threads on the topic :)

    There are over 120 terpenes in cannabis, and myrcene is one that cannabis shares with mangoes, and in much higher
    concentration (especially in extracts) several other plants such as lemongrass and hops. Terpenes have analgesic,
    euphoric, anti-mutagenic/anti-cancer, anti-spasmodic, narcotic and sedative properties, all their own. They
    also assist cannabinoids in crossing the blood brain barrier, intensifying, and helping to regulate the experience.
    A single drop of hops or lemongrass extract can provide more myrcene than you'd consume after eating a half dozen
    mangoes, making it the more economical (but less tasty, or more overpowering :p ) choice. With lemongrass, you are
    also able to benefit medicinally from another terpene shared with cannabis; limonene. [​IMG]

    The below should help... just a few things I've posted in past threads (sorry if it repeats the above a bit!):


    For a much higher concentration of myrcene (the terpene in mangoes, responsible for the
    'enhanced effect' noticed by some), a more economic investment would be a bottle of hops
    , or lemongrass oil.

    These are generally found in organic shops, as simple flavoring elements and supplements,
    that normally would not be advertised or (well-)known for their beneficial anti-cancer/anti-mutagen,
    sedative, and cannabinoid-enhancing

    Fresh and homegrown cannabis, that has been properly cared for, should already be fairly loaded with myrcene.

    People will only notice the greatest amount of improvement, when this 'trick' is used in conjunction with older,
    lower-grade herb, where its terpene content has already diminished.

    Some lemongrass oils are up to 25% myrcene, and you get trace amounts of limonene (another
    terpene in cannabis), as well....

    A mango is healthy and tasty, but effect-wise, if it's the myrcene you're after, there are better options. [​IMG]

    There are terpenes that can benefit and enhance your life, as well the effect of your cannabis, in many plants...

    while cutting and manicuring freshly harvested cannabis. They are also responsible
    for police officers, claiming they get 'high' in the line of duty when clearing out a bust.
    It's in fact the terpenes that cause this feeling, not cannabinoids.

    Alpha-Pinene Is found in various trees and plants, including cannabis. "This terpene
    is at the highest level in the Super Silver Haze. So if you like pine-tree smelling and
    tasting weed, think of growing this strain, or use it for crossings."

    ***Limonene "is a cyclic terpene. It is a colourless liquid at room temperatures
    with an extremely strong smell of oranges." This is where many strains get their citrus
    orange, lemon flavors and odors from.

    Sabinene is found in high levels in many haze varieties.

    ***Myrcene, or β-myrcene, - THIS is the terpene available in some fruits and
    plants, including mangoes, that causes people to feel that eating mangoes before
    smoking, will get them 'higher', which is somewhat true, only if the myrcene levels
    are high enough, and not diluted by so much plant flesh. For a more reliable effect,
    simply sniff your preferably fresh bud the instant you break it open, and enjoy that
    nice fragrance, just prior to smoking it. True widow strains develop high levels of

    The fresher the herb, the more terpenes it likely has available. The terpenes are
    released so easily, that in some commercial bud they have often already mostly
    dissipated, before people have a chance to use the canna, in which case additional
    terpenes from fruit can help.

    10- 1.8-CINEOLE


    **** And about mango juice......

    I don't know the specifics pertaining to the juice in question, but for the most part store-bought and
    mango juices either will not work, or they will not work well.

    This is because they have often been heated or 'flash pasteurized' to the point that a large quantity of
    the heat-sensitive myrcene, the terpene which promotes the intensified effect, has dissipated.

    In the future, you can always buy a mango or two and puree them in your blender, or even by hand
    in a plastic bag [​IMG] You can 'drink' it as-is, or add a little of your favorite juice, or water.




    Or, you can go even a little further, and incorporate that puree into an edible canna recipe... Myrcene, intensifies cannabinoid cellular permeability.



    A CannAmbrosia Fruit Salad madewith tincture, is another way to benefit from the enhanced sensations, provided by additional terpenes in conjunction with your cannabinoids...


    (And edible drinkables [​IMG] )



    A tip - Simply enjoying an oil burner for aromatherapy, containing a blend of lemongrass, nutmeg and sandalwood oils WILL produce a more euphoric and narcotic sensation while smoking. Do NOT attempt to directly inhale the vapors produced by your heated essential oils, this is not healthy, nor is it necessary to benefit from the terpenes! Feel free to experiment with other essential oils to produce a variety of sensations, from relaxing, to energizing. [​IMG]


    Don't forget, MOST store-bought mango juices have been flash-pasteurized, even those cheaper bottles that
    don't mention how they were processed (those are often the worst)... this means that the majority of the terpene
    content you're looking for, is gone.

    Want a fresh, healthy mango drink, WITH a decent myrcene content? Save a few dollars on the over-priced, watered-
    down juice, and just buy a mango or two, and put them through your blender. [​IMG]

    And if you're smoking fresh, or properly cured home-grown.. don't expect a simple mango with the teeny tiny myrcene they
    have, to do much for you

    A mango is best for older, and over-dried commercial bud, that has already lost much of the myrcene content it once had.

    If your bud is decent at all, you're only likely to notice an increase in sensation if you use a better source for myrcene..

    Again, lemongrass oil/extracts and hops extracts are great. [​IMG]

    Anyhow... hope this helps! [​IMG] [​IMG]
