If you are a regular marijuana user, you might have encountered a case of munchies every now and then. This is particularly common among products with high THC content. We have listed our best late-night munchies for you to snack on. These are easy to make and will surely satisfy your late-night cravings.
How Does Marijuana Cause The Munchies?
Cannabis products with THC affect your body physiologically. THC is the compound responsible for triggering your body to eat. THC stimulates the endocannabinoid system which then stimulates the production of ghrelin – the hunger hormone.
Aside from that, the THC also binds to the olfactory bulb which affects the way you taste or smell food. Food becomes more appetizing and seeming fulfilling. Every bite seems tastier and smells better than it ordinarily does. Your brain thinks you are hungry, even if you are not.
Stoner Food To Try
Raw cookie dough is the perfect solution for sweet tooth cravings. These are better than normal cookies since they tend to dry up your already dry mouth. You may whip up your own batch and store it in the fridge or you can buy ready-made dough in the store. The best part is that you can customize this to fit your liking. Add some chocolate chips, nuts, or even caramel drizzle to make it an interesting snack.
Spam And Cheese Ramen
This is a simple, three-ingredient recipe that will leave your savory taste buds happy. Take your pack of ramen noodles and slightly break up the contents. Sprinkle the spice and vegetable packets into the cup. Add as many Spam and cheese chunks as you want.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and then add some into your cup of ramen. Let this sit for three minutes, stir, and enjoy.
Could anything be more satisfying than a juicy and greasy burger? Any burger would do for as long as it is loaded with a juicy patty, some vegetables, cheese, and delicious buns. This would also go well with a serving of fries since carbs are helpful in sobering up.
Popcorn is another great example of stoner food. It is low-calorie so you can munch on a lot if you are worried about gaining weight. It is also very easy to prepare. Popcorn can be seasoned with savory or sweet flavors, depending on your preferences.
Any carb-loaded food is appreciated by weed users so pizza will be something that could satiate you. Its greasy and juicy texture is guaranteed to make your taste buds and tummy happy. It might be hard to make an entire pizza on your own so you could always order one. There are also ready-made pizza rolls that you can just pop into the oven for a few minutes. And remember: the cheesier, the better.
Doritos come in a wide array of flavors and you can eat these on your own or with a delicious dip. The crunchy texture and savory explosion of flavors make this a delicious companion on your trip to getting “high.” These are also great movie snack options if you plan to watch a trippy film while you are consuming marijuana.
Combos are great snacks all-around, but you will especially appreciate them when you are high. These snacks have such a unique flavor combination. The pretzel tubes are stuffed with buffalo blue cheese and pepperoni pizza crackers.
Overall, you can eat anything for as long as they are filling. Sign up for a subscription at MonthLeaf and get your monthly supply of marijuana. They would go perfectly with the snacks we listed above.
