But wait what is marijuana?

Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mix of dried, crumbled parts from the marijuana plant. Some people get addicted to marijuana after using it for a while.

Most of us have heard of cannabinoids, those are the chemical compounds present in marijuana that provide the effects our bodies feel when ingest cannabis. As the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis continues to spread in the present days. And though active compounds known as cannabinoids have been hogging the limelight, there’s another category of compounds that are yet to be similarly appreciated by consumers and chemists alike.

Those are nothing terpenes, but terpenes which are belongs to family of cannabinoid-like compounds. Among the 20,000 different terpenes that have so far been identified in nature, 200 have been found within the cannabis plant it self.

Terpenes play a major role in the plant’s myriad healing properties. Indeed, current studies are revealing that they provide quite the banquet of therapeutic services, as well as being a building block within the cannabis plant.

Out of these terpenes myrcene is found to be the most abundant terpene. Myrcene can be found in any number of plants and fruits and grains, and it is definitely in one of the most popular fruits on the planet: it is none other than the king of fruits i.e., Mango. Myrcene is responsible for giving mangoes their unique smell.

Let me explain you here about an interesting fact about mangoes, myrcene, marijuana combination

An interesting experiment was done with the mango and cannabis that produced some notable and practical results.

Eating fresh mangos or even drinking a fresh mango smoothie 45 minutes prior to smoking will dramatically increase the toking effect felt by marijuana and help medical marijuana patients to ease their pain. This is because a chemical compound known as myrcene terpene. Those who have experienced increased highs as a result of eating mangoes suggest that the absorption time of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was cut from 7 seconds to just 4. As a result THC can induce hallucinations, change thinking and cause delusions. On average, the effects last about two hours, and kick in 10 to 30 minutes after ingestion.

But mangoes are by no means the only myrcene-containing substances. The key terpene is also found in apricots, hops, lemon grass, the bay tree (from which bay rum is made), parsley, verbena, and wild thyme. And that leads to an interesting question just begging for field research: If mangoes get you higher on pot, wouldn't these other items do so, too?
