We all expect to feel some severity of the munchies after a ‘puff, puff, pass’ session with friends. When you get high, the THC interacts with the CB1 receptors in your endocannabinoid system (ECS) responsible for taste and smell. It also triggers a hormone in the stomach called ghrelin, which regulates appetite. This is why, after a smoking session, everything tastes amazing and you’re suddenly starving, too. Here’s the very best munchie food, for when you’re feeling buzzed to be in the kitchen, or when you’re glued to the sofa in a weed-induced stupor.
I’m Feeling Creative and Want to Cook Something!
Just ripped a bong and now you have a carb craving that only tortillas can fix? The best thing about wrapping ingredients inside bread is you’re limited only by your imagination – especially when you’re high. Cheese and black beans are a must. Steak, avocado, mushrooms, potatoes, pizza ingredients, shrimp, or BBQ sauce are delectable extras.
A staple of the stoner’s repertoire, ramen can be adapted to suit how adventurous you’re feeling. Maybe you just want to add boiling water and a flavor packet. But if you’d like to take your stoned longing for noodles further, add in eggs, shiitake mushrooms, pork belly, tofu, or king prawns, along with your favorite sauce and vegetables.
No munchies list would be complete without mentioning brownies. And whilst we can fully understand the allure of chocolate, it’s time to think bigger. Up your brownie game by adding caramel, coconut flakes, popcorn, M&Ms, cheesecake, or peanut butter. The real challenge will be choosing from Delish’s 56 outrageous brownie recipes when you’re high as a kite.
I’m Too Baked – Let Me at the Cupboard Snacks
Cereal at any time of the day isn’t only for students – stoners revel in its crunchy, sugary goodness too. If you’re looking to stock your cupboard with the best munchie food that won’t run out when you’re high, a few packets of cereal will fit the bill. Froot Loops, Cocoa Puffs, Frosted Flakes, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch… There’s enough choice out there for any tastes. Just add milk!
What’s the best way to satisfy both your sweet and creamy cravings? Ice cream! Most people opt for a trusted brand like Ben & Jerry’s – especially as they stock so many flavors and are available to buy almost everywhere. If you really want to indulge your sweet tooth, top with a spoonful of Nutella (another munchie favorite food).
Sometimes you’re not feeling the sugar, and you need something that’s savory but enjoyable in large servings. The salt content in chips is one reason we keep coming back for more, and this is only amplified with a case of the munchies. Kettle Brand has a whole host of interesting flavors, including Korean Barbeque and Spicy Queso. Those bags of chips that claim they’re for sharing? We don’t think so!
