After consuming marijuana over a period of time you may notice that you just are not getting the same euphoric feeling. This is because your tolerance for marijuana has built up. Luckily for the long time user there are many ways to help you find your optimum high once again. These tricks include eating food (which is perfect since you have the munchies anyway).
A great way to make the effects of your marijuana high become more intense and to last longer is to eat a ripe mango about an hour before consuming cannabis. It may seem a bit too odd to be true but there is science behind doing this. In a study conducted by the Swiss Federal Research Station for Agroecology and Agriculture the contents of steam distilled marijuana essential oil was analyzed. It was found that the most abundant terpene was myrcene. Myrcene is also abundant in mangoes and it is what gives it its sweet aroma. So, when mangoes are eaten before a smoke session then myrcene will enter the bloodstream and it will bind with the different cannabinoid receptors. This will allow chemicals like THC to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily so that your high feels higher and lasts longer.
A more common way to boost your high is crossfading. Yes, this is an actual term used for combining alcohol and marijuana. A study conducted by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry found that if you consume alcohol and then smoke marijuana it will cause the level of THC in your plasma to increase and intensify your high. The reason for this is because alcohol opens up blood vessels in your digestive system, thus, helping THC become absorbed. This is a very effective way to boost your high, however, you should know your limits because a common effect of mixing these two is greening out. You could start to feel nauseous as the room begins to spin around you. Also never attempt to drive after hitting this combo, but as long as you’re at home surrounded by couches and fluffy pillows feel free to test your limits.
Hate waiting so long for the effects
If you’re into marijuana edibles but hate waiting so long for the effects to set in then consume nuts with your edibles. Next time you’re baking a batch of hash brownies then throw some walnuts into your batter. Nuts contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which binds to cannabinoids and aid them through the blood-brain barrier. This will help the THC to hit you quicker and to feel the effects longer.
While you are baking a batch of walnut hash brownies you can increase the time you feel the high even higher than before by adding some chunks of dark chocolate in there. Isn’t all this talk about chocolate walnut brownies just make your mouth water? The cacao in dark chocolate contains substances that are close to anandamide, which is you brain’s bliss chemical. Anandamide is a naturally occurring substance made by brain cells and they mimic the mental effects of cannabis. This brain chemical binds and activates the same receptors that are activated by THC. Basically, when you eat dark chocolate with marijuana then your high will last longer.
Next time that cottonmouth hits you after a smoking session make a cup of tea instead of reaching for some water. Black and green tea contains catechin, an antioxidant that binds with th CB1 receptors in your brain. It will help you to relax and get into a happy mood without taking your high over the top. It’s a great way to intensify your high, however, it won’t make it last longer. For your convenience you can do one better by making some marijuana tea; that way you have a two in one!
