I've been doing that long before I understood why.
I've always loved strong sour foods. I never knew the reason is because they help with anxiety and in my case I salivate like a bulldog which helps my throat. All the pollen in the area dries out my throat fast.
I'll eat incredibly spicy food to achieve a high that knocks out negative emotions and depression very effectively.
I've always loved mangoes. Turns out the antipsychotic effects of myrcene might be why.
I hate or love foods based solely on a combination of taste, texture, and effects.
A large amount of citric acid for example provides me with a high like feeling, so who knows what's up there.
I haven't read that paper in awhile, so once I found it I linked it. I'm lucky in that I'm sensitive to aromatherapy. I can diffuse essential oils to get high. If I use a good amount of peppermint oil for example I'm stuck in my couch with a smile all day.
Apparently I'm a natural interpener thanks to my super sensitive sense of smell as I can feel the effects of a strain if I'm able to get a good whiff of the profile without smoking or vaping it at all.
