THC kicks your metabolism into high gear for a short time – so it’s no surprise that ‘The Munchies” is a phenomenon associated with cannabis users.
We’ve all been there. You’re just settling in after a nice joint, or a few rips off the bong or oil rig. You’re just getting comfy, marathoning a new show – when it hits. The hunger. The only issue is – there’s nothing in the house. Nothing “snacky”. No chips, candy, fruit – nothing microwaveable. Nothing crunchy, salty or sweet. So now you need to walk down to the store or call somebody – what are you going to get?
Even the worst pizza is still pretty goddamned good. Especially if it’s late, and you just have to answer the door to get a crispy, chewy cheesy box full of one of the worlds best snacks. There’s few better stoner foods than a classic pizza from one of your favourite spots. I’m partial to a classic pepperoni myself – no need to complicate things too much – but I’ve tried just about everything from “Poutine pizza” to a “Big Pickle Pizza” and they’ve all been at least worth trying.
Fast enough to just grab and eat, but tasty enough to convince yourself it’s a meal – even if you don’t go all out with the toppings. Nachos are always a safe bet to curb the hunger of just about any group of smokers. Just take note of who can’t handle hot peppers or olives, either for their sake – or so you know not to invite them over anymore.
The easiest, crunchiest snack with the widest variety – Chips are the classic ‘Munchies’. Hostess potato chips even used to have a campaign about the Munchies back in the 80’s and 90’s before lays bought them out, featuring three little monsters. Everybody who’s reading this has definitely polished off an entire family sized bag and then questioned their life choices. It’ sOK – we’ve all been there.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth you have a huge selection of treats at even the lowliest of gas stations. From classic 5 cent hot lips, to starburst, runts, taffy and all kinds of other stuff your dentist hates – candy definitely tastes better when you’re blitzed. Of course the Candies you’re eating could be what’s causing the munchies in the first place.
Everybody likes chocolate – be we’ve all got our favourites. Milk chocolate creations, dark chocolate, crunchy bars, caramel filled, or packed with nuts. For some people there’s just no substitute for chocolate.
These are the most common stoner snacks – but we all have something that someone else might consider unusual, gross or just flat out bizarre – but I’m always open to suggestions. Leave a comment below with your oddest snack!
