The chemicals in peppercorns and lemons help a person relax by creating an effect similar to that produced by CBD. There is some scientific evidence to support this.
As previously reported, peppercorns contain terpenes (aromatic compounds found in many plants) that are able to interact with the terpenes in cannabis. Peppercorn terpenes, pinene and caryophyllene, are known to reduce the psychoactive tendencies of THC and are reported to help alleviate reactions such as anxiety and paranoia.
Other high terpene foods include mangoes, which some people use when consuming cannabis because they claim they produce a stronger high.
Cannabis is a mysterious compound. While it has been around for centuries, the complexities of the plant are now beginning to understand how the way it works with the endocannabinoid systems and whether or not it interacts with other elements that humans ingest.
