Foods to elevate your smoke sesh
annabis is already an amazing plant. But like many things in life, you can make a good thing even better. While growing your cannabis plant with the abby automated grow box, pairing it with fruit can be a great way to make the most of it. Try pairing your next smoke session with one of these to help get you higher!
Mango is arguably the most popular fruit to be paired with cannabis. Eating the fruit about 30-45 minutes before smoking (or eating) will help you feel its effects more intensely. However, it can also be done shortly before or during your smoke sesh if you’re short on time.
The reason mango is so popular is because it contains myrcene, a terpene that reacts with THC. (Terpenes are essential oils that give foods and plants their fragrance.) Myrcene is safe and is also naturally present in lemon grass, bay leaves, hops and eucalyptus.
Try these ways to consume:
Fresh Mango Juice
Nuts contain high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, which gives cannabinoids something to hang onto and, as a result, your high kicks in faster AND stronger.
Eat some of your favorite nuts before your next smoke session and get ready to feel the high in a brand new way!
Herbs And Spices
Thyme, sage, and bay leaves all contain the terpene pinene. Similar to the effects of eating nuts, pinene can speed up the onset of your high and increase its intensity.
Interestingly, if you find yourself too high, other herbs can help bring you back down, such as lemon thyme, lemon basil, lemon grass. They each contain limonene, which can counteract anxiety and stress brought on by cannabis. Inhaling the scent of black pepper can also help calm you down (just be careful to inhale slowly and deeply and not too quickly, or else you might get a nose full of pepper).
Black And Green Tea
Black and green tea can elevate your cannabis experience as well. They contain an antioxidant called catechin that binds with receptors in the brain, called B1 receptors, to bring on many of the feelings associated with cannabis, including rest, relaxation and de-stressing. Combining the two makes for a wonderful and elevated experience.
Believe it or not, if you want to feel the full effect of the greens you are smoking, then enjoy more of the greens you should be eating. Broccoli contains beta-caryophyllene, a terpene that binds to your CB2 receptors like many other cannabinoids. Eating Broccoli is recommended before smoking an indica. A few ounces can produce some wonderfully blissful results.
