Cannabis has become a common medication across the US thanks to its increasing acceptance among US citizens. Now cannabis access has become easier than ever to a point where you can get online and complete your 420 Evaluations in San Bernardino. Just ten minutes and you’ll receive your card.
But as access becomes easier, the consumption grows and so does the need to improve the experience. For medical patients, cannabis is the cure to their pain, lack of sleep, anxiety and alternative to ineffective medications. They are always searching for tips and tricks to make their high potent and also last as long as possible.
Well, thankfully this is something that can be achieved. How? Using food. Many of the foods have certain terpenes and chemicals that synergically react with cannabis and improve your overall cannabis experience. Here are some of the foods that you can include in your cannabis sessions.
I had to begin with the most commonly known natural enhancer of cannabis- mangoes. Most of you may already know or may have heard about it somewhere that mangoes can improve your cannabis high. This is because of the presence of a terpene called myrcene in the fruit. When you eat a mango before a session, the terpenes enter the bloodstream. After you consume cannabis, the terpenes react with the THC in cannabis and intensify the high and other therapeutic properties. It also makes the high last longer than it normally does.
Myrcene in itself has anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. When consumed with cannabis, these properties are only enhanced. In addition to this, myrcene is able to reduce the blood brain barrier on its own. So when you consume cannabis after having a mango, the cannabinoids are able to reach the brain faster and with more intensity.
Not only do these factors hold true when you eat a mango before consuming cannabis but also after a session. So you can use mangoes to relieve your munchies and to enhance your high.
If anxiety, depression, stress and emotional disorders are common with you then along with using cannabis, add sweet potatoes to your daily sessions. Apart from being delicious, sweet potatoes are a storehouse of healthy carbohydrates, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E which act together to regulate intense emotions and depression levels. This is possible because these nutrients have the ability to increase the production of serotonin in the body. It is well known that serotonin can develop happy feelings and reduce negative ones.
When combined with cannabis, the mood elevating properties also receive a boost and be more helpful in the treatment of depression.
Combine sweet potato and cannabis into an edible to enjoy the benefits. Bake some sweet potato fries and sprinkle with some sea salt and decarboxylated cannabis.
Many people crave chocolate and some find pleasure with it. Do you know why? The answer is cacao. Just like cannabis, cacao also contains some chemicals similar to the endocannabinoids produced in our body naturally. Anandamide, N-oleoylethanolamine and N-linoleoyl ethanolamine are some of these chemicals. And these chemicals produce a feeling similar to cannabis high or more like a ‘runner’s high’ after a vigorous workout.
Anandamide naturally occurs in your body too. It can deliver a feeling of pleasure and euphoric high just like cannabis. In addition to this, other chemicals found in chocolate can elevate its therapeutic properties like pain relief, appetite and mood. When you combine chocolate with cannabis, the intensity of the overall effects rise and you get a longer and better high. A side benefit of combining these two is that you can mask the strong flavor of cannabis.
You can make cannabis-infused chocolate at home too. Just remember to be very careful with the dose as edibles tend to deliver stronger effects. And considering that cannabis and chocolate enhance each other’s properties, sticking to the right dose is very important. Wither contact a professional for advice or practice microdose with the smallest amount.
Tea and cannabis go very well together. Not only in terms of taste but also in terms of effects. Tea of different types can increase the effects of cannabis on the body. This is because of the presence of catechins or antioxidants. These compounds react with the CB1 receptors of the body similar to the cannabinoids found in cannabis. By activating the receptors, these catechins lift up the mood and lower the level of stress. You can identify the difference with the feeling of relaxation that engulfs you after a sip of tea.
Cannabis will intensify these therapeutic effects and also enhance the euphoric feeling.
Green tea has the most amount of catechins because it is less processed compared to other teas. So it will be the best choice to combine with cannabis. You can also consider adding herbs to the tea like basil, sage, lemongrass and mint as they contain certain terpenes that will help prevent any side effects of cannabis like anxiety and also create an entourage effect to further improve your high.
Did you like broccoli as a kid? If not, then you will like it now. Because broccoli is one of those foods that can enhance your cannabis high. Now you wouldn’t mind munching on some boiled broccoli, would you?
Broccoli contains a terpene called β- caryophyllene. It has the ability to bind to the CB2 receptors and deliver the many therapeutic properties similar to cannabis. It can help reduce pain, act as an anti-inflammatory and also help deal with depression. But all these benefits can only be attained when combined with cannabis. So get yourself a bowl of boiled broccoli and pair it with your everyday cannabis session.
Nuts are something you can eat even without a cause. But if you do need one, how about the fact that they give you a better high? That’s right.
THC can get you high only in the presence of fats. And nuts are a storehouse of omega-3-fatty-acids. These fatty acids easily bind to the cannabinoids and get them past the blood brain barrier. This increases the onset time as well as the total duration of the high.
So get your shopping bag and fill your pantry with these foods. They will not only naturally improve your cannabis high but also prove to be the perfect healthy snack to relieve your munchies.
