Mangoes and summertime pair together perfectly! One of the reasons is because mangoes are in season throughout the summer. But here's another pairing that you may not be aware of...mangoes and hemp! Mangoes are high in Myrcene, a terpene that can also be found in hemp/cannabis. For most people, myrcene provides a relaxed, calming effect. When you consume mangoes along with your hemp you are enhancing the therapeutic effects and some say accelerating the onset of those benefits.
