It’s 4/20 and if you’re anything like us, you’re going to be making the most out of this day. Because, obviously. But you know what’s going to make it all the better? Besides an endless table of pizza, White Castle, and whatever else you can shove quickly down your gullet without choking? Preserving that sweet, sweet high.
Luckily we’re here to tell you how to do it — through foods.
It’s science people, don’t question it. Elite Daily just unveiled a list of five foods that are scientifically proven to enhance your high when smoking weed. Start munching.
Thanks to the vitamins found in sweet potatoes (primarily E and B), eating them increases the level of serotonin production in your brain, putting you in a better mood. When paired with bud, you’ll feel reaaaalllyyy happy. Not to mention, sweet potatoes are delicious, so it’s a win-win.
The Omega 3 fatty acids found in a bag of nuts bind with the cannabinoids found in weed so your high will hit you at a faster rate. If you can’t see why this is awesome, reread it.
Eat broccoli before you hit the bong if you want to feel extra mellowed out. With high levels of terpene that bind together with cannabinoids in marijuana, you’ll be fighting depression in more ways than one. Hell yeah!
Beer & Tea
According to a recent study from Clinical Chemistry, people who are drinking and smoking at the same time had a much higher blood THC level. For those not looking to get that f*cked up, drinking tea gives a similar, less intense feeling.
Eating a mango or drinking mango juice an hour before you smoke will apparently strengthen your high. According to Elite Daily,
I’ve tried it before myself and it definitely works.
Unlike most other fruits, mangoes contain myrcene terpenes, which is also found in cannabis and binds together in your bloodstream to give you a true bang for your buck. This is great for people who can afford more mangoes than weed.
Thank you mangoes!
