It is quite possible that you may like the ideas and choose one to enhance your high. So, if you are deciding to call friends over a cannabis shesh, you will need a lot of munchies. Remember that food is all about flavor, aroma, and deliciousness. Plus as soon you pair food with the magical substance, the high will only get better. Are you ready?

Mango – The king of fruits
How do you eat mangoes? Do you cut it in pieces or make a shake out of it? I am sure everybody has their own way of having mangoes. But did you know that mangoes are filled with myrcene? Myrcene is a terpene responsible for the aroma and flavor in your food. Just like if you sit to wonder where does lemon gets it citrusy flavor or aroma from? It is the terpene that does the magic, and out of the thousands of terpenes, myrcene is one of them.
The matter of the fact is that myrcene is not only present in mangoes but also in cannabis strains. The other fact about myrcene is that it will make you high and that high will last longer than expected. And if you are looking for a long-lasting high mangoes after or before a cannabis session might do the job.
Additionally, eating a mango pre-smoking session will work quite effectively but most people are of the view that taking a mango two hours before a cannabis session is best for a good high. But always remember that the tolerance level for each individual is different. So, make sure you are aware of your capacity.
It is a scientifically proven fact that nuts are filled with Omega – 3 fatty acids. The fatty acids have the ability to bind with the cannabinoids which, in turn, helps them get through the blood-brain barrier. Thus, with fatty substances in the body, you will experience a high that is on point and accurate at the same time. Now, if you are looking for a food item to enhance your cannabis high, this might be the right choice for you. While you prepare your strain for the smoking session, grab a packet of nuts and gulp a handful to make the session even better.
Nuts are the best choice because they help get a person high by acting on the healthy fats. Not only this but they have several health benefits too. For example, nuts are very good for people with cardiovascular problems. So if you have cashews or walnuts rich in antioxidants before or after consuming marijuana, you will definitely experience an advanced level high.
Before we get into the advantages of green tea and how it will help you get a good high. Here’s what you need to know. THC is a component of the cannabis plant and it is the only compound that directly interacts with CB1 receptors. CBD is another major compound of the marijuana plant but it mostly interacts with CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. This is why THC-rich strains give you a high. Now that you know this piece of information, let’s talk about green tea.
Green tea is packed with catechins. Catechins are phenolic compounds, which help in the process of antioxidation. Green tea is not processed and the originality allows it to have a maximum no of catechins. It is also the reason behind the relaxation people get after having green tea. Similarly, THC rich strains also have the ability to give a calming effect. The combination of both these similarities will help you get a high that you are looking forward for.
If we talk about the role of green tea with cannabis. The role is that of lowering the stress levels, boosting the mood, and creating a decent euphoria. In fact, you can always pair a good THC strain with green tea you might not even find the need to add sugar.
Every food item mentioned in this post has something to do with the nutritive value. Because at the end of the day the food items that I mention here contains nutrition or certain compound that helps you enhance the high. So, if we discuss the properties of sweet potatoes, you will discover that it is packed with carbohydrates and Vitamin B. Both the components are known for increasing the production of serotonin in the brain. This means that your mood will be quickly boosted after having sweet potatoes.
So, how will it work in tandem with marijuana? It is simple, Sweet potatoes are low in protein and fat. This, in turn, will work best with your favorite cannabis strain because consuming carbohydrates and protein will lessen the production of serotonin. Whereas sweet potato will enhance your mood and you will enjoy the high for a maximum period of time.
My mom always tricked me into eating greens. I so hated the look of the color that I would detest it until I realized that it is actually good for my health. So here comes broccoli, a vegetable that is packed with caryophyllene. Another terpene that binds to the CB2 receptor and is found in the cannabis plant too. Though a bite into broccoli won’t do the magic. You have to at least have a bowl filled with broccoli pre or post cannabis consuming session. A bowl will definitely help you get the desired result. And even if you hate broccoli it might be a fun way to introduce it into your life.
Broccoli for the cannabis high that you need. Sounds good to me. Try yours and let us know in the comment section below if it worked for you.
