It’s no accident that most edibles are chocolate based. Dark chocolate contains serotonin and tryptophan which promotes happiness naturally. For extreme bliss, make your next batch of edibles with cocoa of 70 – 85% for the most benefits.

MANGOES

Mangoes are downright delicious. As it turns out they can fast track your high, as well as extend it. Yes please! Because they contain a terpene called myrcene, they have something in common with cannabis. Try eating a mango (or smoothie) an hour before you get high. It will have prepared your cannabinoid receptors so you are ready for lift off.

NUTS

This already healthy snack is about to get more appealing. Nuts contain omega-3 fatty acid. This healthy fat binds to cannabinoids which help get them travel through your system faster. Go for walnuts as they pack the highest punch of omega-3.

If there was ever was a reason to eat your vegetables, this is it! Broccoli contains high levels of another terpene called beta-caryophyllene. It will bind to CB2 receptors in the same way cannabinoids do. This can reduce inflammation and relieve pain, allowing you to go fully mellow.

TEA

Green and black tea contain catechin, an antioxidant that binds to your CB1 and CB2 receptors. This can help you chill out and better enjoy your high. It could help you curb those munchies too.

COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil contains way more saturated fat than butter. This makes it the perfect base for your edibles. In the same amount of simmering time, the coconut oil will be more potent than butter. Not to mention that it’s got a bundle of health benefits and is versatile for cooking or baking.
