I admit it: I love Cheez Whiz, Froot Loops and Oreos as much a the next person … especially after smoking weed. But getting the munchies does not mean you have to snarf down a bunch of junk food, especially in the summer.
As we roll into August, it’s a great time to combine cannabis with your favorite summer fruit. Nothing tastes better on a hot August night than a chilled slice of watermelon or a handful of cherries.
Add these some delicious seasonal fruits to your shopping cart the next time you’re at the corner grocery:
For most of us, cannabis causes the munchies and dry mouth. Watermelon is great for both. Not only does the fruit provide enough sugar to satisfy your sweet tooth, it is 91 percent water. For those who suffer cotton mouth, watermelon is the perfect antidote.
If you’re not careful, you may mindlessly eat an entire basket of cherries while intoxicated. The best advice is to put a serving or two in a bowl and leaving the rest of the cherries in the kitchen. A serving of cherries is about 10-12. Cherries are 82 percent water, so it will help with dry mouth.
Mangoes and marijuana are the perfect together. Not only will you treat yourself with a taste of the tropics, mangoes will lengthen the euphoric feelings felt after smoking or vaping marijuana. Eating the tropical fruit 45 minutes or so before a cannabis session will allow the THC to absorb into your body quicker and the high will stay with you longer. For some, the intoxicating feeling will be slightly more intense.

Stone fruit and cannabis are a great combo. Peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums … it doesn’t really matter. This is the time of year when these fruits are at peak availability. Stock up on some stone fruit and have them on hand when you, well, get stoned.
You’ll feel like you’re on a tropical island when you combine cannabis with pineapple. The sweet, juicy, messy fruit works perfectly with marijuana: lots of sugar to satisfy the sweet cravings and loaded with water to keep your mouth happy.
Yes, technically, avocado is a fruit. The versatile avocado can be used to make guacamole, or toss some in a salad or spread some on toast.
