Cannabis and Food Pairings: 5 Best Cannabis Pairings
When it comes to choosing the right snacks and meal options there’s nothing better than finding cannabis and food pairings. The term “munchies” was given the connotative meaning of the hunger you feel after using cannabis in a study from 1971.
In 1971 Charles T. Tart studied the effects of marijuana and wrote a book titled On Being Stoned: A Psychological Study of Marijuana Intoxication. With his research, the munchies became a part of the world of marijuana and the concept of pairing food with cannabis came into being.
This blog post will help you next time you have the munchies. These five cannabis and food pairings will hit the spot.
5. CBD and Comfort Food
The CBD definition, in a loose sense, is a derivative of cannabis that is designed to help you relax and feel comfortable. What better to pair CBD with than comfort foods? Whatever your favorite comfort food is will pair perfectly with CBD. If you’re looking for suggestions, pasta, soup or stew, bread-based dishes, or breakfast foods are a good place to start.
4. Sparkling Water Edibles and Healthy Snacks
Plain sparkling water is best paired with light snacks. It’s no surprise that sparkling water edibles are well suited to pair with healthy snacks. The right snacks depend on the flavor you prefer in your sparkling water. Some options to test out are kale chips, edamame, roasted chickpeas, trail mix, hummus and veggies to dip, and boutique potato chips.
3. Chocolate Edibles with Wine and Cheese
Chocolate, wine, and cheese is a killer combination. When you eat a chocolate edible sometimes the munchies kick in right away and you feel compelled to have more of the chocolate. Avoid that by having a cheese board and wine ready to go. Red wine is often the best option, but white wine can work with a lighter chocolate choice.
2. Pre-Rolls and Pizza
One of the best benefits of pre-rolls is their ease of use. All you need is a lighter and you’re good to go. Pizza is the food that meets that level of ease head-on. All you have to do is order pizza, or pop a frozen pizza in the oven. With so many pizza toppings available you can match the strain of any pre-roll.
1. Pineapple Express and Brownies
Speaking of matching foods to specific strains, there’s one strain that has a high level of fame: pineapple express. Made famous by the 2008 Seth Rogen film of the same name, pineapple express is a top tier strain choice. It’s rich, tropical flavor profile lends itself to a brownie treat. You can even top your brownies with caramelized pineapple for an extra dash of sweet.
