Seasoned marijuana users know that the more they smoke, the more their tolerance builds and the harder it is to stay high.

Here are 5 of them.

A lot of users claim that having some mango or mango juice an hour before consuming marijuana is a magic trick for a really intense high. This delicious fruit contains myrcene terpenes, which are also present in cannabis. These compounds bind to each other and magic happens. They also make for a pretty healthy treat, which is good for the munchies.
