Did you just finish off a joint or a fat bong rip and forgot to stock up on the snacks? Or are you on a road trip and remembered to pack the dank weed but not the papers and lighter? We’ve all been there, the vibes are flowing and all is well until that stoner moment hits and you realize you are out of the essentials. Here’s a checklist of items that are completely random yet (mostly) necessary to have the perfect smoke sesh.
Best stoner snacks
The first thing you should do in a convenience store: go straight to the snacks. If you’re already high, you need to focus on this mission since fulfilling your munchie cravings are a top priority. What are you in the mood for? Sweet, sour, salty, all of the above? Grab a few of the following and you can never go wrong.
Best potato chips
There’s something about the salty, crunchy crisp goodness when eating potato chips, so grab a bag or two of your favorite flavors! A Classic Lays, sour cream and onion Pringles, or Bugles are a few great options - you’ve haven’t fully lived if you’ve never put Bugles on each of your fingertips while high out of your mind.
Best munchie candy
You don’t need much direction here since everyone has a favorite candy: Snickers, Sour Patch Kids, M&Ms, the list goes on! We do suggest doubling up on your faves for a late-night munchie snack later on. Pro tip: put a few candy bars in the fridge for an hour or two and enjoy a chilled, sweet treat.
Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter cookies all hit different when some ganja is in your system and most convenience stores have a wide variety of cookies to choose from. Mix it up depending on your mood, but carefully make your selection to compliment what’s next! Cookies are great to combine with pretty much everything so you can’t go wrong, really.
As essential munchie meal is ice cream, there is no doubt about it! The cold and creamy deliciousness hitting the back of your throat after you just took a beast of a bong rip is really something else. The best creations come from being high, like Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream with some Nutter Butter throughout. Thank us later!
When you’re finished with the munchies mission, the next task is to stock up on smoking supplies. Every stoner should buy in bulk to avoid these types of situations, but it happens and it calls for a plan of action. Similar to remembering your phone, wallet, and keys, as a stoner, it is important to remember the weed, papers, and a lighter. But there are other little nick-nacks you can pick up at a convenience store to make your smoke sessions even more lit!
Weed grinders, rolling papers and lighters
If you didn’t pick up a cheap weed grinder beforehand, convenience stores usually have grinders available although you’ll be paying a lot more. But when in a pinch, what can you do? Grab the cheapest grinder you can and remind yourself to plan ahead next time, it pays off!
Same for rolling papers and lighters, you should check out the $4.20 Store for a variety of choices from joint papers to wraps. It is also easier to get smoking filters through an online headshop since many convenience stores do not carry rolling papers with filters included. However, convenience stores are your best bet for finding all of your smoke supplies in one place and at the last minute. Grab yourself a three-pack of lighters, some rolling papers or cigarillos if you’re feeling feisty, and you are well on your way to having a stoner success story!
