As all stoners know, one of the major side effects of smoking marijuana is succumbing to the ravenous nature of the munchies. It is a phenomenon that people tend to have mixed feelings about. Some people hate the amount it makes them eat, while others savour it, and enjoy the feast it brings on.
For some cannabis consumers, the “munchies,” is an unwanted side effect that can lead to overeating, but for many medical marijuana patients, it provides necessary relief from symptoms like nausea and a lack of appetite.
So here are five strains that will get the job done, you can get the seeds below.
Critical Kush, as the name suggests, is the coming together of Critical Mass and Hindu Kush, with a bit of Skunk #1 thrown in for good measure. The result is a potent indica dominant strain that never fails to induce the munchies. To top it all off, Critical Kush produces very generous yields of some very aromatic and pungent bud. The THC content is roughly 18%, and has a moderate CBD content to go with it.
This sweet indica-dominant hybrid has a berry-like taste perfect as a pre-game to that second (or third) helping of apple pie. When it comes to strains to stimulate your appetite, this one is notorious for giving users the munchies so be prepared to eat your weight in casserole and turkey. We feel a serious food coma coming on.
Goo is a fairly heavy indica, so don’t test this strain unless you’re prepared for a strong dose of relaxation with your appetite boost. It also offers relief from painful muscle spasms, making it a good choice for spasticity or for those who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders.
A descendant of the infamous Girl Scout Cookies, not only will this indica keep your belly rumbling but it will also make sure you’re nice and relaxed for the inevitable family questioning every holiday seems to entail. Be careful though, this strain is sure to help you have a nice long nap in front of the football so make sure you bag the comfiest spot on the couch.
The only sativa on this list, Blue Dream is a sure winner. Its high THC content will keep you stress and anxiety free, a must when there are so many family members around. It’s also a great strain for treating nausea, perfect if you’re not feeling so hot after all the food you’ve eaten or the holiday beverages you’ve consumed.
