Don’t go hungry this October. Make these stoner-appropriate snacks instead.
It’s that spooky time of year again, when your neighbor’s little goblins are working your last nerve (mostly because you ate all the candy you bought for trick-or-treaters), and your late-night cravings are more insatiable than ever.
Halloween and stoner munchies are basically the equivalent of zombies and brains, or peanut butter and jelly, so why not make your munchies a little more magical this year with some devilishly delicious, cannabis-infused snack recipes that are perfect for satisfying those late-night cravings during Halloween movie marathons? So channel your inner Guy Fieri (we kid, we kid…maybe channel Martha and Snoop instead) and get to cooking up some weed-filled snacks.
