Pot Foods Perfect for the Munchies

The New Craze in Cooking 1 of 9

Gone are the days of just flour and sugar as the main ingredients in baking. In some circles, kitchen enthusiasts have instituted leafy green marijuana -- or cannabis -- as a way to flavor food and provide some mind-altering entertainment at the same time.

Eating weed is a different high than smoking it; some even report a stronger buzz compared to hitting a joint or bong. It's a great alternative to smoking it because no one will be able to smell the pot on your clothes or breath. For those who don't like the taste of marijuana, cooking certain recipes can provide the desired effects without the overwhelming taste.

One main difference to keep in mind when eating pot is that, in food, the "buzz" will take much longer to fully kick in - usually about an hour.
