5 Things That Can Enhance Your Cannabis High
The more often you consume marijuana, you may notice that your tolerance level increases and the effects are not as intense as they used to be. If you are looking to enhance your cannabis high, there are a few things that can potentially help you to boost your buzz!
1. Mangoes Mangoes contain Myrcene, which is a terpene also found in cannabis. It’s contents can act as a muscle relaxer, painkiller, stress reliever, and can help with inflammation. Myrcene plays a part in the distribution of THC as it helps it travel to your brain faster. By consuming mango about 30 to 45 minutes before consuming cannabis, it can have a faster onset and increase the duration of its effects.
2. Dark Chocolate Chocolate is already a treat itself that many like to indulge. But combining chocolate with cannabis can provide a more joyous experience. Dark chocolate specifically, contains high contents of anandamide, which is a chemical that produces a state of pleasure. The anandamide in dark chocolate can take a long time to break down in your body and this can prolong the effects of marijuana. It is recommended to use dark chocolate that is 72% cocoa or higher, as it will give additional antioxidant effects.
3. Healthy Fats Just about any heated substance that contains fat with marijuana will help distribute THC into your bloodstream. This is because cannabinoids and fats are both hydrophobic, therefore the THC molecules willingly dissolve in lipids when they’re heated together. One of the most common sources of using healthy fats and marijuana is with Cannabutter, as it can easily be added to a variety of foods and add additional flavor. Consuming marijuana through edibles will lengthen the duration and strengthen your high. 4. Omega-3's Cannabinoids from marijuana activate the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a system of neurotransmitters that controls a number of functions in the body such as sleep, mood, and stress responses. When the ECS is not balanced, the functions it controls are less effective. However, Omega-3’s plays a vital role in maintaining the ECS as they feed off of the fatty acids, making the system’s functions work more efficiently. Therefore, increasing your intake of omega-3’s can allow marijuana to process easier and enhance the effects. 5. Tea Green and black teas contain an antioxidant called catechin. Catechin can bind with Cannabinoid receptor type 1 in our brains which can lead to feelings of calmness and relaxation. When consuming tea with marijuana it can help decrease stress levels, while increasing your mood and the euphoric feeling from cannabis. Before trying any of these methods, it's important to take into consideration your cannabis tolerance. Those who are beginners or have a lower tolerance should start slow so you do not exceed your limit. Remember that using too much cannabis can cause unpleasant effects.
