Cannabis & Food Pairing

Cannabis Pairing – Best Food and Cannabis Combinations

As laws concerning cannabis have started to relax, times are easier for stoners as well as those who use cannabis for medicinal purposes. With the legalization of marijuana in several parts of the world gaining traction, interest in the plant is also growing, and many wonder how you can best enjoy cannabis.

It is often said that food tastes better when you are high, and this is actually true. The THC component in cannabis binds itself to the endo-cannabinoid receptors in the brain, leading to an enhanced sense of smell, which further leads to increased appetite. It is because of this that munchies taste extra good when you are high. Here are some of the best food and cannabis combinations that will make your taste buds explode with flavor. These foods taste splendid when you have cannabis in your system.

·Cookies and cream

Whether you have cookies and cream as an ice-cream/milkshake or have cookies and cream separately, they taste extremely good while you are under the influence of cannabis. It can make you feel satisfied and relaxed and is great for any time of the day. If this is too sweet for your liking, you can add tomato soup to the mix. It might sound odd, but the tangy taste of the soup will balance the sugary sweetness of the cookies and cream.

·Nachos

Nachos are another great option when it comes to munchies. The cheese, the spice, the saltiness, or whatever taste you get depending on your topping will definitely enhance your experience. You can either enjoy your nachos while watching a movie alone or if you're friends, you can munch on it while playing poker or board games.

·Indian food

Indian food is a great food option for right after you have smoked up. It is already so full of flavor, but this gets enhanced with cannabis in your system. Whether it’s curry, Aloo Gobi or Dal Makhani, it will definitely satisfy your hunger. Many stoners prefer vegetable dishes over non-veg ones.

·Chocolate

 Chocolate has a component known as tryptophan, an amino acid that induces the release of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin, known as the feel-good hormone, makes us happy and relaxed. This is exactly why chocolate makes such a good cannabis snack because the combination of serotonin release in the brain and THC (the psychoactive component of cannabis) makes us feel extremely good.
