For some of us, smoking weed is all about eating. If I were, to be honest, I’d say that life is all about eating.
But through smoking weed, I actually found a way to make it better.
We know that the chances of this being the same for you are pretty high. So we decided that we had to do an article about the best munchie food you can find to pair your 420 celebrations with.
The Strain: Sour Lifter
Lifer strains are known as an extremely potent variety that needs to be treated with respect. Sour Lifter comes with notes of juicy berries, grapes, and a lemony aftertaste that combines perfectly with the diesel-like aroma that Lifter strains bring to the table. Sour Lifter is a Sativa-dominant strain, which makes Herb’s Sour Lifter flower bud even more special as it is a Sativa-dominant strain with a low THC profile.
A CBD heavy strain that will make you feel lively and energized. Because the CBD content is right up there, this flower bud provides just the right amount of relaxation you look for in a daytime strain. Meaning, you’ll feel relaxed but not sleepy or groggy.
To Munch On: Sour Patch Kids
Sour Patch Kids have been around for as long as I can remember, and even though I’m not a fan of gummies and candies that much, I definitely eat them when I’m smoking. For some reason, smoking is a bit harder on my throat than it is on most of my friends. So a nice sweet and sour candy always seems soothing. Not to mention that the combination of sweet and sour works great for me because it doesn’t feel as overwhelming as munching on candy with a singular sweet profile.
The Strain: Sour Diesel
Sour Diesel has a tangy & fruity flavor to it and a diesel-like scent. The smoke itself provides euphoric, relaxed, and energized effects that feel pretty powerful. Some people claim to feel focused with Sour Diesel, but that’s not an experience I can vouch for. I have, however, felt very creative when consuming this strain. Both head high and body high are extremely potent with this one, which is more than expected, regarding that THC levels can scale up to the high 20%s.
To Munch On: Pepperoni Pizza
Safe to say I’m biased on this one. I kind of have a thing for a classic slice of greasy pepperoni pizza. Which would explain why I eat more than I should when smoking weed. Because Sour Diesel seems to spark up an appetite in me, a large Pepperoni Pizza is what I usually fall back on. Plus, this means I’ll have a couple of slices leftover for breakfast later on that week.

The Strain: Berry Pie
Described as the perfect combination between focus and euphoria, which kind of makes sense. But in my personal experience focus and euphoria are easy to match, it’s just a question of knowing how to dose and b balance your THC intake. Which is something you’ll want to be wary of with an extra potent flower bud like Berry Pie from Cookies.
With this strain, you’ll benefit from an uplifting mood boost and a kick of creativity that will help you pummel through a day full of chores. As it usually happens (at least for me) with strong strains, expect to feel a craving or two. Which is something you should definitely expect from Berry Pie as THC levels can reach up to 20% or more.
To Munch On: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
I know I said I’m not a big fan of sugar, but doughnuts deserve a spot on this list because they’re not ONLY sugar. I find Krispy Kreme Dougnuts to be the perfect decadent delight I need to feast on when the high is getting a bit out of hand. There’s just something about the doughiness of a perfect pastry that makes it the go-to treat for when I get realhigh. Also, you can go with something that’s not all that sweet like a Honey Bacon Doughnut, which is a personal munchie favorite for me.

The Strain: Strawberry Lemonade
A tarty Sativa flower with THC levels that can scale up to the 25% mark. Meaning, you’re in for a real trip. The jolt of energy and giggly effects I get from this flower is the main reason why I purchase it. Perhaps my favorite 420 strain to smoke with friends because it makes for a great conversational high. Although the body high is extreme, you will also feel energized and focused, so there’s no real risk of becoming a couch potato, at least not immediately.
To Munch On: Burgers & Fries
There’s just something appealing about a juicy burger and a side of large fries. I can’t explain what it is, but it just makes sense as a munchies election. Strawberry Lemonade has been known to give you an appetite, so you might as well be prepared for it. The good thing is that burgers and fries are accessible, so if the munchies are hitting hard, you can double up without really leaving a dent in your bank account.

The Strain: Wonka Bars
In many cases, people start smoking weed more than they used to before because they’re trying to find a reliable substitute for booze. I personally stopped drinking booze because it just didn’t feel physically pleasant to do so anymore, while weed did. Wonka Bars is the perfect strain to substitute for booze. You’ll find yourself zoning out into your own little world but by doing so you’ll also feel in a way better mood. Wonka Bars is all about euphoria and relaxation, and the high levels of THC that sit around the 20% mark will also make your taste buds a lot more sensitive to flavors.
To Munch On: Chocolate Bars
Classic chocolate bars like Twix, Snickers, and Milky Ways are always a great product to keep in your cupboard if you’re a frequent weed smoker. We thought a proper pairing to Wonka Bars would be, yet another bar. The good thing about chocolate bars is that you have hundreds to choose from and they’re all easy to find at any corner store or gas station.
