>>582617037 >eating mango before you smoke weed will increase the high 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.
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.
>>582618090 Mangos: Contain myrcene, its effects are listed here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3165946/ Lemongrass: myrcene once more, see above Peppercorns: Contain pinene, its effects are listed in the same article as the mangos Ginseng: I discovered this one by chance, but it seems that the active compounds in ginseng are differen lysophosphatidic acids, that have an effect on receptors that alter the activity of the cannabinoid receptors, which is what cannabis predominately works on. I think this is why it affects the high so much, but I am not entirely sure. (http://retrogenics.homestead.com/Ginseng__Pharmacology_1999.pdf) Passionflower: Acts on different receptors to give a relaxing and somewhat sedating effect. It has MAOI properties, which means it inhibits the body's ability to metabolize neurotransmitters, which are responsible for all kinds of sensations and feelings. I think this is how it boosts cannabis' effects. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20382514 and http://www.zamnesia.com/blog-passionflower-the-great-enhancer-n360) Raw cacao: Is said to contain MAOIs as well, but I have only heard this from word of mouth. Could be a placebo, but it works for me, so I have no sources on this. Nutmeg: Gives very MDMA-like effects because the two active chemicals in nutmeg (myristicin and elemicin) are actually precursors to MMDA (almost the same thing) and mescaline. I think nutmeg itself doesn't do anything for the high itself, but the feeling from nutmeg itself has great synergy with the high. You can look up the mechanisms of action of those two compounds anywhere :)
>>582619223 leave it to a pothead to not even understand his own arguments you said a few people had posted "the science" I asked you to show me more than one person who has posted "the science" you don't have to look at anyone else's research, you just have to explain why you said a few people have posted something, when there's clearly only one person who's posted something
>>582618418 been reading the nih link it says myrcene is a sedative, so that may increase the sedative effects of pot it doesn't make any conclusions even in the conclusion section, it says further studies may prove or disprove it it's essentially saying "if you take a sedative with pot, there's a chance that you might be more sedated than taking pot alone" bravo, potheads
it certainly doesn't say that anything, including myrcene, "increases" any effects of pot
>>582619932 you don't have to tend on me, but you should strive to sound like a rational person who understands the difference between "one" and "a few" but that's up to you, maybe you're happy being dumb, idk
