Best Exotic Snacks When You Get the CBN Munchies
Cannabinol (CBN) has become the go-to hemp-derived cannabinoid for sleep, thanks to its ultra-soothing effects that lull many people to bed. Enjoyed on its own, it’s non intoxicating, but it’s also blended with delta 8 THC frequently as the two, when combined, can supercharge one another’s relaxation properties.
While CBN is largely associated with sleep, there’s another effect that it can be known for – increasing appetite, which can lead to the well-known “munchies”. Fortunately, ELYXR has introduced a collection of Exotic Snacks to tackle the munchies with flavor combos you just can’t find in U.S. supermarkets. Let’s take a look at the best exotic snacks in their collection for when those munchies hit.
What are “The Munchies” and When Do They Kick in?
The munchies” refers to that sudden increase in appetite that happens when we consume most cannabinoids in cannabis. Usually, when we get the munchies, what we want are sweet and/or savory snacks, and we find that we can down a whole bag of chips or box of cookies in one sitting, no problem.
The reason why we get the munchies is because of how certain cannabinoids interact with serotonin receptors. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter in the brain that we largely associate with mood – it’s sort of known as the “happy” hormone. But, an increase in serotonin also means an increase in appetite, which explains why we can get a sudden hit of cravings when we’re under the influence of these hemp derivatives.
Exactly how much the munchies hit you and when they kick in depends on a few things, like the strain of the product (even certain terpenes can enhance this effect), the strength of the product, the dosage amount, and simply the way in which your body uses cannabinoids. Another factor is the delivery method, which determines how and when CBN reaches peak levels in the blood:
- Gummies: The munchies usually kick in within about 3-4 hours after consumption.
- Tinctures: The munchies usually kick in within 90 minutes-2 hours after consumption.
- Vapes: The munchies usually kick in within 45-60 minutes after inhalation.
Best Snacks For Your CBN Munching Pleasure
Time to really take a look at the top exotic snacks that you will find at ELYXR for when the hunger pangs begin. A lot of it comes down to personal taste, but since we’ve had the luxury of sampling all of the snacks in the collection, we have a pretty good idea of which ones really hit the spot.
Let it be known that any fan of red velvet flavor needs to get their hands on this Chinese Chips Ahoy cookie flavor, which takes red velvet to a whole new conceptual level. The cookies are soft and chewy, with an ultra-moist red velvet cookie dough, baked to perfection and dotted with white chocolate chips. Dehydrated raspberries and blueberries add a surprising fruity element that complements the traditional red velvet flavor combo beautifully.
Thought Pringles was boring? Think again! This Chinese Pringles flavor may be unheard of in the states, but overseas, it’s a big hit. And, we can see why. The combination of spicy chilis, zesty lemon, and sweet, oceanic crab makes for a crave-worthy and complex blend of flavors, with neither the chilis nor the lemon being too overpowering. Seafood lovers don’t want to sleep on this exceptional release that hits the spot on a whole new level.
If you’re more in the mood for something refreshing to wash away cottonmouth, then this mouthwatering elixir is the way to go. Made by a legendary Taiwanese soft drink brand, it’s a special release that pays homage to an iconic cartoon character. The UI Goku Apple flavor offers the taste of crisp, smooth apples, which pairs beautifully with fizzy cola. Keep in mind that Asian sodas are typically less sweet than they are here in the United States, as American palates generally prefer more sugar. To us, that’s a good thing – the flavor is crisp, clean, and refreshing, to genuinely quench that thirst.
The KitKat Mini Bag is something of a novelty here in the US, but a very, very popular product on Asian markets. These miniature KitKat Bars are just like the OG ones that we’re used to over here, except the fillings are completely unique. And, how could you not pine for Banana Caramel, which offers a sweet and savory filling amidst rich milk chocolate and crispy wafers? The caramel has the gooey richness we all want, while the banana offers a level of sweetness that hits the spot.
Now, for those who want a punch of heat, we have something special – these Chinese Doritos, in the flavor “Hot and Spicy.” The name basically says it all – it’s the same Doritos recipe you know and love, but coated in a super-hot chili dust that elevates the spices to a level unheard of on the American market. We do recommend that you’ve a good spice tolerance if you are gonna partake, but otherwise, they’re pretty much addictive.
Sure, we’ve all had Skittles before – but these Skittles from the Asian candy market just hit different, since the flavor is Fruit Tea, which is completely unique from the flavors we’re used to. Fruit Tea takes on a mellower approach to a fruity candy, with the black tea notes offering a gentler type of sweetness, with almost creamy undertones. With a variety of flavors inside each bag, you will have no trouble consuming the whole thing in a single sitting.
Since we do associate CBN with nighttime, there’s something about indulging in these Matcha Fig Oreo’s that seems fitting. Matcha and fig makes for a delicate flavor combo, with the green tea notes reminding us of something we’d sip on while getting ready to unwind before bedtime. Ultra Thin Oreo Biscuits are crisper than their original counterparts, providing a snack that’s surprisingly elegant for the brand.
