The thing about smoking weed is that it tends to make us hungry even when we don’t really need the extra calories, and that is the perfect time to whip out a handy list of healthy snacks that will fill you up without packing on extra pounds. If that’s what you’re after, then this just might be the list for you, as it includes some of the best snacks that money can buy with a hearty dose of CBD to boot.

1. Fruit salad

Fruit salad has got to be one of the simplest and best snacks on this list because you can use any combination that you like and come up with a new treat every single time. To make it, all you need it 1 cup of your preferred fruit per person, and then use 1 tablespoon of a sweet cannabis-infused oil like coconut to coat each piece before tossing it in the called for juices and serving. It’s cold, it’s delicious and easy to personalize, so it doesn’t get much better than this.

2. Lettuce wraps

Lettuce wraps are all the rage now that so many people are trying to cut gluten out of their diet, and they taste delicious either warm or cold, which is an added bonus if you're looking for a snack that packs up easily when you’re on the go, and making this CBD infused version is easy. All you need is large lettuce leaves, some ground beef that’s been carefully browned under low heat with a fair dose of CBD oil mixed in, then add in all of your favourite toppings like sour cream, tomato, dressing or cheese, and then this snack idea will be complete.

3. Yogurt

Yogurt is one of the best snacks out there if you want something really simple, and most don’t realize how easy it is to infuse this light snack with a bit of CBD. All you need is a rice-sized portion of distillate or ½ teaspoon per yogurt cup of cannabis oil, and with a quick mix, your healthy hearty snack will be ready for you to enjoy. For the best taste, use a thicker yogurt like Greek and top it with a fresh layer of fruit that will pack a nice hit of vitamins to the mix.


4. Sweet potato chips

Some would argue over the healthiness of this snack idea, but if you’re using the purest, most sensible ingredients, it’s a low-calorie option that will hit the spot when you’re hungry without hurting your waistline. To infuse these delicious morsels, you’ll need to start before they’re baked. Normally, you’d coat the chips in oil before tossing them in the oven, but this time, you’ll want to add a small amount of CBD oil to the mix, and then use a brush to apply it for even dosing.

5. Deviled eggs

Last but not least is one of the most incredible snack ideas where you can have everything ready and waiting for you in the fridge if you boil a few eggs in advance for when you might want some. All you need is 1 hard-boiled egg, a few drops of CBD oil, ½ teaspoon of mayonnaise, and a dash of spices like paprika, or salt and pepper, and in a matter of minutes, you’ll have a heart-healthy snack that comes with all of the benefits of CBD in just a couple of bites.

Once you’ve mastered these snack ideas, you’ll be ready to take your skills to the next level by incorporating the lesson that you learned by infused each dish into other incredible recipes that might require a bit more experience in the kitchen. The options are limitless so you can switch it up to sweeter snack ideas or healthier alternatives to suit any mood.
