Urban legend says that eating a mango before ingesting cannabis can strengthen the medicine's effects. Most cannabis consumers agree that this legend holds some truth — this is most likely because of the terpene found in both mangoes and several cannabis strains, Myrcene. This terpene has been known to treat spasms, inflammation and insomnia. Myrcene increases the permeability of cell membranes, allowing for the effects of cannabis to set in faster and stronger. Mangoes are already delicious and packed with vitamins — they're even better when paired with cannabis.
