A wise man once told me, “There’s nothing better in life than smoking weed,” and I’ll add to that: “There’s nothing better in life than eating after smoking weed.” The notorious “munchies” afflicts nearly every stoner, turning them into an omnivorous machine, devouring every cupcake, Doritos, and week-old Chinese food in their path.
There’s actual research that shows cannabis stimulates appetite while removing the hormone that makes you feel full. While we caution temperance—I’ve had friends vomit after stuffing their face with too much food—eating is one of the great pleasures that the Weed Gods have given us. Indica weed, particularly, is great to pair with eating. Here are the 7 best foods to eat while high.
There’s few things better than smoking a joint and biting down into a steaming hot Chipotle burrito.
Because we know how weed gives you a bottomless stomach, the“Chipotle Hack” to getting the most bang for your buck is to order a burrito bowl, ask for a tortilla on the side, and order chips. You’ll get a ton of food in the bowl itself—half of which you can roll with the tortilla to make a burrito. Then, dip the chips in the remaining bowl. Finally, order online to save yourself the mind-numbing wait in the line.
Ramen is great stoner food: it’s quick, easy to make, and tasty. The real stoners out there will make two ramen packages at once and drain the soup a bit—this will give you, literally, “oodles of noodles” to chow down on.
Skittles, sour straws, gummies—pick your poison. I used to live in New York City, where my roommate and I would cop a dutch and sour straws from our local bodega every night.
PRO-TIP: If you’re smoking a blunt or joint, hold the candy in your mouth while you inhale, giving your hit a nice flavor as it goes down. This works particularly well for sour candies.
Nothing like eating Taco Bell, Arby’s, or of course, White Castle, when you’re stoned out of your mind. Order a combo meal and savor the trifecta of salt, sugar, and mystery meat specifically designed by corporate overlords to be as addictive as humanly possible.
Cereal is definitely one of the best foods to eat while high. Munchies can make you want to eat forever, and a box of cereal and jug of milk can give you ten-plus bowls of sugary goodness. Recommended brands: Fruity Pebbles, Cap’n Crunch, Reese’s Puffs.
No words necessary here. Ice cream—great for breakups, dates, and family outings—is also one of the best foods to eat while high.
For a true “Stoner Achievement,” eat cannabis-flavored ice cream, or visit a Cannabis Creamery.
Most of the aforementioned items are either straight-up unhealthy, like Taco Bell, or gluttonous, like Chipotle. We know there’s a sub-sect of “healthy stoners”—those of you health-nuts who like to do yoga and tantra after smoking. For you guys, fruit is the way to go.
Marijuana can make you savor taste, sight, and sound more, and fruits will surely awaken you to the deliciousness of God’s creation. We guarantee you’ll be marveling at how damn good it tastes. Recommended fruits: peaches, watermelon, and mangoes.
