You can spend lots of money at fancy restaurants pairing wine or beer with food, or maybe you’re not a snobby foodie and what you really want tonight is to go grab the cheapest, most satisfying, fast food you can get your hands on! No thank you to wine and beer, what you really want is to smoke a nice big phatty. If you could only just figure out what weed strains go with the Big Mac you just bought. No problem. Below you will find some sick ideas on how to pair your favorite fast food with your favorite weed strains.
When you add your mild sauce to your quesalupa why not add some Kaia Kush too? For people who like spicy Jalapeños this is your go-to pairing strain. Kaia Kush is a hybrid of OG Kush and Super Silver Haze. If you like to add lime to your tacos you should try Super Lemon Haze. It’s a sativa hybrid of Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze with a citrus aroma and taste. Don’t forget to add a Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze to that. Oh. I almost forgot. Here’s the taco bell store locator.
Wendy’s just ain’t that bad. They even have square burgers. Think “herbs” when it comes to something as tasty as a Wendy’s burger and this is how you will want to pair it. For burgers you will want to try Chemdog, Super Lemon Haze or King’s Kush. King’s Kush is made with the genetics of OG Kush and it’s known to have a grape aroma with hints of lavender.
Need to get your dairy on? Why not try Cheese, an indica hybrid from the UK with genetics from Skunk #1. Pair this with your favorite dairy products like Dairy Queen shakes, sundaes and blizzards. If you like strawberry shakes look into a strain called Strawberry Haze.
Like weed with your coffee? Then try Himalaya Gold, a strain originating from Nepal and North India. This strain can more or less be found in Washington State. Hey, that’s where Starbucks started out! Anyway, it will go good with tea, coffee or cocoa. If you like coffee with your milk or just love frappuccinos then pair it with Cheese, the strain, instead.
Who likes Orange Chicken? Pair it with Kaia Kush. For Sesame Chicken try Neville’s Haze. For spicy dishes like Kung Pao or Black Pepper Chicken check out Lemon Skunk, Super Lemon Haze, Super Silver Haze, Neville’s Haze or White Widow as pairing options.
