What To Eat When High On Weed? | Best Takeout Food

Estimated 6-minute read

You’ve heard about the top munchies to get ready for 4/20, as well as ten healthy munchies and the best homemade snacks for weed munchies. But what if you don’t feel like cooking or have no time to go to the supermarket for supplies? Worry not; I’ve compiled another list of best delivery and takeout food to eat while high.

Whether you’re getting it delivered to your home or picking it up at the restaurant, be sure to do it before your smoking session, so everything goes smoothly. 


Reminder of what are weed munchies:

Back in 2014, a group of European neuroscientists from the University of Bordeaux in France researched about this topic. After several different testing on mice, they concluded that cannabis might make you eat more food after consuming it simply because THC makes you smell and taste more acutely. 

In other words, THC will most likely increase your sense of smell, and the better the increased scent is, the bigger your appetite will be. That’s the munchies explained, and when they hit, you want to make sure you’re prepared. 


Here’s a compilation of meals to eat when you get the weed munchies:

 

Noodles 

Did you know the oldest evidence of noodles we have was from 4,000 years ago in China? According to Wikipedia, back in 2005, a team of archaeologists found an earthenware bowl made out of clay that contained 4000-year-old noodles. The noodles found at the Laija archaeological site were said to resemble lamian, a type of Chinese noodle.

More than 4,000 years later, here we are still consuming this Chinese plate, and now almost every single city has a restaurant that serves this delicious meal. While being high, the combination of sweet and salty ingredients will make you swoon. 

Sidenote: Don’t forget to chew the noodles thoroughly; you don’t want to choke on them while being high.


Pizza

The all-time favorite, am I right? 

The history of pizza goes way back to antiquity when several ancient cultures produced flatbread. As we know it today, modern pizza is most likely connected to flatbread, which evolved from similar flatbread dishes in Naples, Italy, in the late 18th or early 19th century.

Part of the beauty of pizza is that it offers a massive range of choices, from toppings to types of cheese and sauces. Some pizza places will let you create your own meal by selecting the ingredients you want. Why not try that out? 


Mac & Cheese 

According to Smithsonian Magazine, mac & cheese was introduced to the USA by Thomas Jefferson, who, as a president, served macaroni and cheese at an 1802 state dinner. Jefferson has a record that he fell in love with fashionable pasta dishes that were served there while in France, so he brought back a couple of recipes and a pasta machine to North America.

Nowadays, mac & cheese is considered comfort food. It usually goes as a side dish, but if you mix it with other ingredients like chicken wings or vegetables, it could become a meal worth savoring. 

 

Tacos

Tacos are a Mexican origin dish that has been popularized all around the world. Long before the Spanish arrived in America, indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico used freshly made, soft, flat corn tortillas and ate them with fillings like fish.

Today, a taco is made with a great variety of fillings like beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, cheese, you name it! When you’re about to eat your tacos while riding your high, don’t forget to put cilantro, chopped onion, lime, or a seasoning of your choice. They will taste even better.


Burgers

There’s a dispute about hamburgers being originated in Germany or in the United States, and there are many claims of invention too. However, one true thing is that burgers have become a global food that’s served with different variations, depending on the country’s culinary traditions.

It doesn’t matter where you are; takeout burgers will always be a tasty choice that contrasts perfectly with meat, cheese, sauces, and a delicious bun. Of course, there are always vegetarian and vegan options for those who prefer; I encourage you to research a little bit and see what’s available in your city.


Chicken wings 

The origin of chicken wings is often debated, but it all goes back to Buffalo, New York, with the Bellissimo family, who owned a bar in 1964. At the time, chicken wings were inexpensive and undesirable, primarily used for stock or soup; now, look at how much that has changed.

From crispy buffalo chicken wings to vegetarian cauliflower buffalo wings, this is a perfect option to calm your munchies down. 

 

French fries 

Listen, I know this is more like a snack, but I recommend ordering elaborate fries like artichoke and parmesan, fries with tiny bacon bits, or even chili fries… You can thank me later.

And just to add a little bit of history, courtesy of Wikipedia: There’s also a dispute about french fries’ origins, with Belgium claiming to have invented french fries, not France. Nonetheless, the Belgian food historian Pierre Leclercq has traced the history of the french fry and asserts that "it is clear that fries are of French origin." However, the Belgian standpoint claims that the term “french fries” is a “French gastronomic hegemony”, where the Belgium cuisine was assimilated to France because of both countries' shared language and geographic proximity. 

An interesting topic to talk about amongst your stoner friends while eating some tasty french fries.

 

Burritos

Fun fact: “burrito” means “little donkey” in Spanish. (Isn’t it cute?)

According to Wikipedia, the name “burrito,” as applied to the dish, possibly derives from the tendency for burritos to contain many different things, similar to how a donkey would be able to carry a large burden.

Burritos are often filled with beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, cheese, and other condiments like sauce, guacamole, or cream. Is your mouth watering a little bit? I know mine is.

I urge you to find a takeout burrito place and eat it while you’re high; the savory mix of ingredients will make your mind explode. 

 

Kebabs

It is a flavorful cooked meal that originated in Middle Eastern cuisines; each country gives its dish little variations. You may also know this meal as shish kebab, gyro, or even doner kebab since this dish has become very popular worldwide.

Kebabs consist of cut-up meat sometimes paired with vegetables, falafel, and other accompaniments. According to Wikipedia, the traditional meat for kebabs is often lamb, but regional recipes may include beef, goat, chicken, fish, and sometimes pork due to religious prohibitions.

High or not high, kebabs are already a mouthwatering meal; imagine how delicious it can be when you’re stoned.


There you have it! Nine full meals to calm your munchies down when you’re not feeling like snacking or cooking yourself. 

Remember to look at restaurant options and order your meal before starting your smoking session. Make sure you plan it out while you’re sober, whether you want to pick it up or have it delivered to your house.


Happy eating!
