With an estimated 30,000 cannabis enthusiasts descending on Santa Rosa for the annual Emerald Cup there’s bound to be a munchie rush come late afternoon. Maybe sooner, since things kick off pretty early at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. And while there will be plenty to nibble at the event, we’ve put together a dream list of toker snacks both obvious and not-so-obvious that are BiteClub recommended.

First off, a little science lesson about eating when high. Stoners know that “Oh my god this is the absolute best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life” feeling that comes after downing a bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, but it turns out there’s some serious physiological voodoo going on in your brain that makes it almost impossible to ignore them. According to a 2014 study by the French National Institute of Health, THC (the stuff in marijuana that makes you “high”) binds to olfactory receptors in your brain, making food smell and taste really, really good. Not just any food, mind you, because no amount of cannabis will make lima beans taste good. Typically it’s food that’s high in fat, sugar and salt, aka junk food.

So, here’s a delicious list from Biteclub and our BiteClub Facebook audience. Because whether you imbibe in the kind herb, or just get hungry reading my columns, it’s always snack-o-clock somewhere.

A word on where to find these items: Most are available at any grocery store or 7-11. Trader Joe’s gets a special call out because it’s a munchie wonderland. Obviously, not all of these recommended snacks will be easy to get hold of if you’ve already partaken, so our best advice is either to plan ahead, grab a sober friend or call a taxi. Safety first, friends.
