Best Exotic Snacks When You Get the Delta 9 Munchies
Delta 9 THC is the most sought-after cannabinoid of all-time. How come? Well, because of its powerful high along with its various potential benefits. The key intoxicant in weed, delta 9 also exists in the hemp plant, albeit in trace levels, and can be extracted from hemp to offer a legal way to savor those uplifting yet blissful psychoactive effects.
Another thing that delta 9 is known for is the munchies. If you’ve ever gotten high off of cannabis, then you’re almost definitely familiar with that sudden urge to snack on whatever you can get your hands on. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce our catalog of Exotic Snacks, which offers a carefully curated variety of sweet as well as savory snacks, plus beverages, that come from international markets. These exotic snacks capture the things that we crave when we’re high. So, ELYXR has made it more convenient than ever to grab your favorite Delta 9 products and tasty munchies at the same time.
What are “The Munchies” and When Do They Kick in?
When we talk about “the munchies,” we mean that big increase in appetite that results from consuming most cannabinoids in cannabis. Usually, when we get the munchies, we crave sweet or savory snacks, and we find that we can down a whole bag of chips or box of cookies in one sitting, easily.
So, why do we get the munchies? It’s because of how certain cannabinoids interact with serotonin receptors. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter in the brain that we largely associate with mood – it’s kinda recognized as the “happy” chemical. But, when serotonin increases, so can our appetite, which explains why we can get a sudden hit of cravings when we’re under the influence of these hemp derivatives.
Just how much the munchies take over and when they do depends on several variables such as the strain type used in that said hemp-infused product (even certain terpenes can enhance this effect), a product’s milligram strength, the dosage amount, and simply the manner in which your body utilizes cannabinoids.
Another factor is the delivery method. That’s right, the product type/delivery method determines how and when delta 9 THC reaches peak levels in the bloodstream:
- Vapes: The munchies usually kick in within 45-60 minutes after inhalation.
- Flower: The munchies usually kick in within 45-60 minutes after inhalation.
- Dabs: The munchies usually kick in within 30-45 minutes after inhalation.
- 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.
These Exotic Snacks Were Practically Made for a Delta 9 High
Now, let’s take a look at the best exotic snacks at ELYXR for when those THC munchies start to hit. While ultimately, each person’s tastes and preferences are different, we’ve had the pleasure of sampling all of these delicious treats, and can confidently say that these awesome snacks hit the spot on a whole different level.
Oreo’s are never a bad idea when you’re craving something sweet – and let’s be honest, most of us can easily kill a whole bag in one sitting, especially when we’re high – but these Oreo’s offer a flavor profile that you won’t find at the local supermarket. Sold in China, this flavor offers a delicious combo of white and dark chocolate creams, in a “half and half” style, to really satisfy the sweet tooth with an iconic duo of flavor.
Another way to satisfy that sweet tooth is with these Skittles Gummies, which again come from the Asian sweets market. We’ve all had Skittles, but never like this. Each bag contains an assortment of fruit flavors, which are a little less sugary than what we’re used to here, with a surprising creaminess in each gummy that’s so addictive, you’ll likely want to finish the entire bag in one shot. The fruit flavors are surprising, to keep your palate totally engaged each time you pop a gummy into your mouth.
One thing we’re certain of is you’ve never had potato chips like these before. From the Chinese market, these Lay’s Limited Edition Chips really deliver in terms of creativity, and we totally get that they don’t sound remotely appetizing to a number of you. But, give them a chance – the ultra-savory, umami-like octopus flavor is to die for, in our humble opinion, and it’s not nearly as off-putting as it may sound. We’re pretty sure that any fan of Chinese cuisine will fall head-over-heels for this one-of-a-kind Lay’s flavor profile.
#4: Oreo 5 Star
Yet another Oreo product has made its way onto our list, this time acting as a collab between Oreo and Cadbury, with the latter being the iconic chocolate company that mainly exists in the UK – the same company responsible for the iconic Crème Eggs. Oreo 5 Star is another stroke of genius, offering up a delicious milk chocolate bar filled with Oreo cookies and cream, and elevated with a layer of rich and gooey caramel.
Nestle’s Shark Wafer Bites are another Chinese product, consisting of ultra-crisp wafer biscuits layered with deliciously rich fillings. There are three flavors available – Chocolate, Milk, and Cheese – and we’re pretty much obsessed with Cheese, which offers a fairly sharp cheddar flavor along with light-as-air wafers, to provide a combo that’s irresistible in terms of both taste and texture.
Let’s talk about another off-kilter chips flavor that really works – these Chili Lemon Crab Pringles from the Chinese market. This offers yet another umami taste that really satisfies when you’re stoned and those munchies kick in. The crab is deeply savory with a super subtle touch of sweetness, and the chili and lemon flavors are extremely complementary rather than overpowering in their own right.
Kinder’s Creamy Milky and Crunchy offers up a one-of-a-kind sweet treat that you’ll savor when you’re high on delta 9. It consists of a chocolate shell filled with crispy puffed rice and a creamy and sweet milky filling. It’s pure decadence in a little package, and it comes with a spoon as a nice bonus.
