What is Myrcene?
Myrcene is a chemical element in both mangoes and marijuana, which is why these two are a good flavor match. Urban legend has it that if you eat mangoes about 20 minutes before smoking it will intesify the high. We can't say we've personally noticed this, but mangoes and marijuana usually do make a good culinary flavor match-up.
