Best food to eat while high

Do you remember back in college, where you’d get high partly just to see what munchie inventions you could come up with? Sometimes we miss those days and the miraculous creations we were only able to create thanks to marijuana.

Knowing you can’t turn back the munchie time clock, what do you do going forward? You’re not done smoking weed, or else you wouldn’t be reading this article.

So, with some help from science and the internet, what is the best food to eat while high? It turns out there’s a lot.

Maybe that’s because we all have different taste buds, but probably it’s because we only have a semi-stocked kitchen.

Learn what to satisfy your munchie-cravings within the guide below!


If you don’t forget about your nachos and burn the house down, they’re perfect for eating while you’re high. When using anything but a microwave high, we recommend you use a high sativa blend or at least have a roommate home.

That said, what’s better than nachos? They’re crunchy and salty, like tiny tacos that you can zoom into your mouth. We’ll give you a second to giggle at that image.

You can put whatever you have in the fridge on nachos. Got some random olives from that time you thought you were fancy and made a cheese plate? Throw them on there. Grab whatever cheese you have in the fridge and make sure you add more than you feel like you need.

Pro tip: make one layer of chips, then put a layer of cheese, and then repeat. This way you get a nacho toppings kind of lasagna.

Add hot Cheetos, tomatoes, and an avocado if you’re feeling healthy. Throw it in the oven (microwave works in a pinch, but the chips will get chewy) and let the cheese melt.

When it comes out, stop yourself from burning your mouth while you top with some sour cream and salsa.

Now you have all those different textures, the saltiness, the cheesiness, the warm nachos, and cold sour cream, dig in. Don’t forget to turn the oven off before you go eat and pass out on the couch!

Rice Crispy Treats

Rice crispy treats are delicious, but to be honest, they suck to make at home. Yes, they’re better and stickier, but it’s a nightmare to clean.

The prepacked ones are better and come in multi-packs at Costco or Sams. Ask around and see if one of your friends has a membership.

These days the flavors are fancy. You’ve got chocolate, candy mix-ins, numerous cereal flavors, and more. It’s a little over the top, but opening that blue package and biting into that crispy exterior is worth it.

If you’re out and about, places like Cheba Hut make their own rice crispy versions. Their Captn’ Crunch version is amazing and easily stashes in your bag.

They even wrap their treats in saran wrap so you won’t make noise opening it when you’re supposed to be listening.

If you want to try out this delicious treat, your local dispensary probably sells their own laced rice crispy version. Just make sure you don’t confuse the one you eat to get high and the one you eat when you’re already high!


No, it’s not just because you have some around the house. Cereal delivers the sweetness, creaminess, and crunch you need to create the perfect mix of textures for your high tongue. If you have the resources, mix a few kinds.

Be strategic. If you have some healthy, not so sweet stuff, throw a handful of sweet pieces in. You’ll get a surprise in every few bites. If you’re really high, you’ll forget what the sweet stuff is and have to look into the bowl, then you’ll laugh at yourself.

Hey, it’s a good life!


These little candies are surprisingly juicy. They’re small and easy to throw in your pockets if you don’t want to get up off the couch.

The motion of unwrapping each one keeps your brain semi-engaged, so take that, people who say weed lowers your functioning.

We recommend you put some in a bowl where you can see them and start with those but throw some in your pocket. When you’re sad the original bowl is empty and remember about the ones in your pockets, it’ll be pure bliss.

Beef Jerky

Some stoners swear by beef jerky when they’re high. They say the unusual mix of dry and greasy is exactly what they’re looking for.

The taste of beef jerky fills your whole mouth and it has protein, so it may quench your munchies. It’s high in sodium, but not the most unhealthy food on this list.

The good stuff is a little cost prohibitive, but the good news is when you buy some it’ll keep, so you can stash it around the house.


Depending on the type of high you have, delivery food can be the best or most terrifying thing.

We’re all for ordering food and opening the door to a surprise plate of steamy goodness, but if you’re already paranoid, that delivery doorbell may make your anxiety spike.

You know yourself when you smoke. Order wisely.

The Best Food to Eat While High

Honestly, there is no one perfect food to eat while you’re high. If you smoke weed a lot and find yourself craving something you don’t have, write it down on a piece of paper for sober you to find.

That sober you can buy it before your next sesh, so you’ll have something to look forward to. The best food to eat while high is the kind you have at home. Be safe and don’t drive stoned!
