July 22nd is National Creme Brûlée Day, National Day of the Cowboy, National Penuche Fudge Day, and National Hammock Day. But that’s not all. There’s one more sweet holiday on July 22nd. On this day, it’s time to mango tango and celebrate your love of mangoes, for July 22 is Mango Day! There are all kinds of reasons to love the mango, especially if you love cannabis. Cannabis and mangoes go hand-in-hand together thanks to the terpene myrcene.
Myrcene is the most abundant terpene found in cannabis. It is also the dominant terpene found in mangoes. Mango has loaned its name to a variety of different cannabis strains. These strains all have flavor and aroma profiles that are reminiscent of mango. When cannabis and myrcene are paired together, this dynamic duo is a powerhouse of performance for the body. Before we explore different ways to celebrate the mango, let’s take a closer look at mangos, myrcene, and cannabis.
A Closer Look: Cannabis and Mangoes
Mango and cannabis may go hand-in-hand, but what exactly is a mango? A mango is appropriately considered a summer stone fruit. Not because you eat them and get stoned, not because you eat them when you get stoned; they’re called stone fruit because of the large pit in the center. Cherries, peaches, plums, nectarines, and apricots are also considered summer stone fruits.
The most common mango sold in stores across America is the Tommy Atkins mango, a mildly sweet, large fruit with firm, orange flesh and a blushing red peel with green and yellow undertones.
Mango.org says, “Mangos were first grown in India over 5,000 years ago.” India still leads the world in the production of mangos today, cultivating a whopping estimate of “24.7 million tons of mangos annually.” Mangos grown in America come from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, California, or Florida because they must have a tropical environment to thrive. Instead of the ever-so-popular Tommy Atkins mango, the next time you’re at the store buying mangoes, look for the bean-shaped yellow honey mango. The word from Martha Stewart is, “The honey mango variety is prized for its creamy, sweet taste and velvety texture; it is considered one of the finest types of mangoes.”

Potential Benefits of Myrcene
CannaCon says, “Myrcene is the most common terpene found in cannabis and can make up as much as 65% of the total terpene profile in some strains.” In theory, the myrcene in mangoes helps carry more cannabinoids like THC past the blood-brain barrier. This causes cannabinoid receptors throughout the endocannabinoid system to absorb higher levels of cannabinoids resulting in more intense and longer effects. Munch down on sweet mangos alongside your cannabis, and experience fuller effects.
Mango Cannabis Strains to Try
When it comes to cannabis and mangoes, the two are known to go together like peanut butter and jelly, Kool-aide, and sugar, or like Snoop and Martha. In fact, they go so well together that the name mango is used in several cannabis strains.
