For many of us, deciding what to make each day for lunch or dinner can feel boring and repetitive, and once we’re stoned, it’s really easy to be lazy and reach for sugar-filled pre-packaged snacks for temporary fuel, but what if we told you that your daily menu could be designed to enhance all of the feeling and sensations that you feel from getting high?

Can food truly enhance the experience of getting high?

Have you ever taken a bite out of a strawberry and felt a tingle go all the way from the tips of your toes to the top of your head, or drank a bit too much caffeine only to be overwhelmed with what seems like vibrations? These are natural responses to various stimuli like food, and these feelings can be manipulated to work to enhance a buzz, as long as you’re munching on the right things along the way.

1. Mangos

Mango juice is one of the most ideal stoners treats out there because it’s potent and wild tasting and seems to be pretty good at making a high last longer while also enhancing its intensity. To enjoy the effects, you can indulge in pure ripe fruit chunks or go for the gold and turn your mango into a juice for a supercharged boosting drink. Unfortunately, the effects don’t seem so strong once the fruit’s been cooked, so stick to raw options whenever possible.

2. Broccoli

Broccoli might not be the most appetizing food on this list, but if you use cannabis to combat inflammation, then this one might be the perfect choice for you. This green vegetable in its raw form contains terpenes that work well when combined with cannabinoid from cannabis to significantly reduce inflammation, depression, and pain. So even though it might not be something that you crave when you’re getting high, broccoli paired with some dip could be the ultimate way to enhance your buzz.

3. Tea

Tea is full of caffeine which can have powerful mind-altering effects when taken in high amounts, but it is also filled to the brim with potent antioxidants that interact with cannabinoids which can help to soothe any anxiety or stress that you may have so that you can more thoroughly enjoy your high. Herbal tea though quite mellow in its effects is the most recommended, but any types of prepared tea combined with cannabis, including iced tea and steaming hot steeped tea, will leave you feeling extra stoned.


4. Nuts

Nuts are one of the best things to munch on when you’re stoned because we tend to eat them slowly and they’re filled with protein and nutrients that are great for our health, but did you know that they can also help to enhance a high? Nuts are full of healthy fats, which can help you to absorb more of the THC from cannabis at a faster rate, which will ultimately provide a sufficiently enhanced blend of effects when you get stoned. Almost any kind of nut will work, and all you’ll need is a handful of them to see a major difference in how you feel, plus you’ll be avoiding the munchies.

5. Sweet potatoes

Some cannabis consumers find that when they’re getting high, they end up dwelling on negative feelings or problems, which can leave them feeling more down than before they started. Since most of us toke to get rid of these negative sensations, it can be frustrating, but sweet potatoes might be the solution to avoiding this annoying problem. You see, sweet potatoes are filled with the perfect concoction of vitamins to trigger a natural release of serotonin in the brain, a chemical that can improve your mood and help you to combat uncomfortable feelings when you’re getting stoned.

How stoned could food possibly make you?

Getting high with cannabis produces a variety of different experiences based on the type, the environment you’re in, your tolerance level, and what you eat, but no matter which food you choose, you aren’t likely to be taken to somewhere out of this world as a result. Eating the right snacks can certainly enhance a high, but it cannot replace it, and you aren’t going to amplify your buzz by any crazy amount, so it’s important to keep your expectations in check while you experiment with these cannabis mysteries.
