Marijuana already contains more than 100 terpene molecules that are responsible for affecting THC in the brain and giving highs their ebbs and flows. But marijuana contains the myrcene terpene more than any other kind.

“I don’t know the answer and the reason we don’t know the answer is because our government in its infinite wisdom didn’t permit any research in this area for many years,” said Christopher Hudalla, chief scientific officer at ProVerde Labs.
“In many cases we are just starting to do this research.”http://www.salon.com/2014/07/11/why_growing_numbers_of_pot_smokers_eat_mango_before_lighting_up_partner/
