Cannabis is synonymous with the munchies. When people consume cannabis, they usually end up developing an appetite. Typically, the vision of this is someone smoking or a few people smoking together enjoying some bud. They laugh and have fun for a little while before ultimately ending up with a case of the munchies. The munchies are a part of the Cannabis culture that has fueled many early morning and late-night food runs. Unfortunately, many of these munchy runs can lead to eating food or foods that may be unhealthy. All right, let’s face it, almost all of the foods you buy hen you have the munchies are potentially unhealthy.
Change it Up For A Healthy Alternative
Instead of reaching for your typical snacks if they’re junk foods try something a little different. Try munching out on fresh vegetables and fruits. They will help hydrate you and are a great healthy alternative to junk food. Some fruits might even help your buzz stick around a little longer. Fruits like mango are known to be rich in the terpene Myrcene. This particular terpene is known to help increase the longevity of the effects of cannabis. When shopping try to plan ahead and buy healthier snack alternatives for next time the munchies hit.
Another great alternative is to grab a healthy meal to prepare beforehand. You can either cook prior to blazing, or you can blaze first and then display your culinary expertise while you’re in elevated chef mode. Sometimes the elevated experience produces attention to detail making your meal not only delicious but potentially a little healthier too.
Eat Before You Consume
Another great way to help your body consume more healthy foods when you consume cannabis is to eat healthier meals ahead of time. If you know you’re going to consume several times throughout the day, start with a balanced breakfast. By doing this, you will give your body the calories it’s craving when the munchies kick in and avoid eating unhealthy food later in the day.
Unfortunately, there is no way to make unhealthy food healthy, but there are many different ways to enjoy healthier alternatives. Try exploring something new the next time you get the munchies. Remember to stay hydrated because cannabis doesn’t work as well when the body is not hydrated.
