Did you know that eating certain foods will get you higher after smoking?
A healthy diet will do your body good. However, it might surprise you that eating nutrient-rich foods isn’t only beneficial for your health. If you’re a cannabis user (which you probably are), you’ll be glad to know that certain foods can be good for your stash too!
Today, Chronic Haze is bringing you six foods that enhance your high. Try eating these after your next sesh!
You’ve probably already heard this before, but we’ll say it again for the new kids: eating mangoes after smoking gets you higher!
Mangoes contain a terpene called myrcene, which promotes feelings of relaxation and sedation in users. It takes some time for the terpene to enter your system after consuming it, and its presence can help carry cannabinoids through the blood-brain barrier more easily. With that in mind, try eating mangoes around 30 minutes before you smoke to make the most of the effects.
How about some greens with your green? In addition to being a superfood, broccoli is one of the foods that can enhance your high!
Broccoli contains the terpene beta-caryophyllene, which helps relieves symptoms of anxiety and depression. In some cases, this terpene can help relieve feelings of a cannabis high (see: black peppercorns). But it’s also a terpene present in cannabis strains, and can contribute to a certain type of high. If you’re looking for the latter, eat your broccoli before your next sesh. It might not be your fave munchies, but it just might become it.
An essential for hikers and hippies everywhere, nuts are a great snack. They contain protein and other essential vitamins, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are good for your brain and heart. Also, they help you get higher.
Remember, cannabinoids are fat-soluble. The presence of a fat-like substance makes them easier for your body to absorb. Omega-3 fatty acids are no different. They’ll get the THC through the blood-brain barrier faster, making you feel higher quicker. Snack on them throughout your high to make the most of the fatty acids,
Eggs have a lot in common with nuts, at least in this case. They’re a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. You already know where we’re going with this.
Eggs are an easy way to make the most of high-enhancing foods. They’re easily worked into your meal plan and you can eat them at the start of your day. Also, their high protein levels make them a must if you’re trying to put on muscle. There are already known benefits to mixing cannabis and exercise, and eggs are a great way to supplement them.
Sweet potatoes are complex carbohydrates, which have been found to increase the production of serotonin, the mood-boosting neurotransmitter. They also contain vitamin B6, which is known to regulate mood as well.
These traits make sweet potatoes a great way of setting the right foundation for your high. Try some sweet potato fries before your next sesh. It might just put you in a good spot.
Ok, so this one’s not as healthy as the others. But who doesn’t enjoy some chocolate every now and then?
Chocolate, particularly dark chocolate, also contains a cannabinoid called anandamide. This cannabinoid causes feelings of bliss in those who consume it, making it the perfect snack to have alongside your cannabis. The anandamide will easily synergize with the cannabinoids of your cannabis, allowing you to have the sweetest high possible.
And if you’re looking to really get high from your chocolate, try these Shatter Bars by Euphoria Extractions. Though, you probably won’t wanna get any higher after eating these.
