Do Mangoes Get You Higher?

I always have a hard time taking the “science of getting stoned” very seriously.  If a scientist wants to find out the most efficient way to get stoned, he’s probably not smart enough to be figuring out the cure for cancer.  But some half baked researchers have studied the effects of mangoes and getting stoned, check out the results.

I’ve always thought being a scientist would suck.  Unless of course you are the kind of scientist who just smokes weed and eats mangoes all day, because that would be pretty awesome.  Luckily, there are scientists who did just that, and found that smoking weed and eating mangoes gets you higher than smoking weed alone. has an article on the findings,

Mangoes, Lemon grass, and other less-common plants also contain high amounts of this chemical. Myrcene is believed to aid the potency of the marijuana high by allowing the psychoactive chemicals found in cannabis, namely THC, to cross the blood-brain barrier more efficiently.

I don’t know if I’m buying this,  because I thought that Chocolate Lucky Charms got you high.  It turned out I was high and just eating a bunch of Chocolate Lucky Charms, but it still made me skeptical of food getting you higher.

Hopefully this guy is high
