What food makes you higher?

Some stoners may opt for chicken and chips or other munchies while under the influence, yet there are some appetising alternatives than can enhance your high.

Here's a list of foods that can take your high to the next level:

Broccoli

 

Weed’s distant cousin contains high levels of terpenes (beta-caryophyllene) that bind with cannabinoids to help with bodily pain management and depression.

 

Nuts

 

Nuts contain high levels of fatty acids (Omega-3) which aid cannabinoids through the blood-brain barrier. These healthy fats can help you become high quicker and stay high much longer.

 

Mango

 

Mangoes also contain terpenes- in particular, mycrene is thought to strengthen and lengthen your high by helping cannabinoids through the blood-brain barrier.

 

Try some mangoes an hour before a smoke session. 

 

Tea

 

Black and green teas contain an antioxidant (catechin) that can bind with cannabinoid receptors in the brain to cause a feeling of relaxation. Alongside cannabis, tea can lift your mood, increase feelings of euphoria and decrease stress.

 

Sweet Potatoes

 

Sweet potatoes contain vitamins that help the brain to produce serotonin, a chemical that helps to regulate anxiety, happiness and mood.

 

If you tend to have negative thoughts when high, sweet potato might be the food for you.
