Best Munchies is well-documented to stoner lore. The psychoactive component in cannabis, THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS controls many of the body’s functions such as sleep, mood, sexual activity, and appetite. Research shows that a hormone is secreted in the stomach and increases appetite when THC communicates with the ECS. This means that THC can be a strong appetite stimulant. This also means that if you consume weed it is essential to be prepared.
Don’t find yourself digging through a pack of stale cereal, a little forethought before your next stoner session will be the difference between you wallowing in self-hate and your high resulting in a virtuous crescendo with its own food high. Here are some of the best munchies to have on hand while stoned.
- Cookie dough
- Cinnamon Rolls
- Cheez Wiz
- Ice cream
- Chocolate brownies
- Mozzarella sticks
If you chose to indulge in Uber Eats there are a number of options at your fingertips. In my experience, the cheesier the better, which means the late-night menu at Taco Bell has lots of options. If you have a more discerning palate and the forethought to cook, whip yourself up some cheesy deliciousness like some homemade pizza, or a turned-up grilled cheese. Experiment with unique cheese selections like brie, goat, or camembert, and interesting additions like apples, kimchi, grilled onions, or bacon.
Best Munchies are for when you can whip up some queso, a delicious burrito, fancy nachos, or you can take a page out of Action Bronson’s book and grill a rib-eye, layer it on to some delicious bread, and your favorite condiments for an amazing butcher sandwich. Here’s a novel idea for those of you who consider cold pizza some of the best munchies, french toast your pizza. That’s right, take leftover pizza and bathe it in some eggs and milk, and panfry it for some unexpected savory goodness. One note, you’re going to want to leave out the cinnamon and maple syrup for this version.
If sweets are your jam there’s nothing that a fresh tray of brownies won’t fix, or some warm chocolate chip cookies. Another idea is; you can put that stale cereal to good use and toss it into some fantastic cereal marshmallow treats, or an amazing stoner sundae. If all else fails, whip cream straight from the can, can be the perfect antidote to stoner sweet tooth cravings. The thing to remember about stoner cravings is that they’re temporary. You don’t have to indulge in them every time, but when you do, treat yourself to something delicious.
