I'm an avid dab pen user. I enjoy the convenience and potency afforded to me by the tank-like contraption, but soon after taking a few puffs, I'm overwhelmed with the munchies. Everyone experiences the effects of cannabis to a different degree, but most users report feeling intense hunger pangs for some decadent fare.
Some users may not even feel any food cravings, but for those that want to embrace the cheat-day concept, there are many dab pen munchies that will satisfy any appetite. Whether you prefer to eat healthy or want to treat yourself to a mouthwatering dessert, these dab pen munchies will keep you full and happy.

Quesadilla, Burritos, and Tacos
As a proud Mexican-American cannabis consumer, I can personally vouch for this match made in heaven. Mexican food, in general, can indulge any dab pen munchies. One of the easiest dab pen munchies to make is a simple quesadilla made with flour or corn tortillas and your choice of cheese. I'm partial to handmade flour tortillas (Trader Joe's makes good ones) and mozzarella along with some veggies (spinach, mushrooms, etc).
Just like a dab pen, tacos can provide nearly instant satisfaction. While they can vary in size, tacos are usually handheld morsels you can scarf down in a few bites. You can even try multiple tacos made with fish, carnitas, al pastor, and other parts of the animal that aren't typically used. If you're up for the challenge, make sure to give a tongue and tripe tacos a try.
Deep Dish, Thin Crust, and Pizza Rolls
Pizzas aren't the easiest snack to make but are worth the payoff. Make your own at home with the best (arguably) pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. This is not a sponsored post, but dab pen munchies and Trader Joe's go hand in hand. Add some pizza sauce and your favorite toppings. I go for a crispy crust pizza with artichoke hearts, black olives, mushrooms, and broccoli, but you can always keep it safe with a plain cheese pizza.
Skip driving while high and hit up a food delivery app if you want to enjoy your dab pen experience while watching a movie or just hanging out. If both of those options sound like an ordeal, make sure to stock up on pizza rolls/bites to be prepared. There's minimal clean-up and you can still enjoy the savory tomato and cheese pizza flavor.
Ramen, Sushi, and Pho
Asian cuisine is broad but extremely flavorful after a few puffs. With sushi, rice can be a filling option when its paired with fresh and soft fish meat like eel, salmon, or tuna. Make sushi on a date night or order out. Ramen and pho are the ideal treats during a rainy or cold day. Even on a hot day, they're scrumptious. They're usually flavored with a meat-based broth, but you can also get vegan options. I stick with the pork belly ramen and beef pho.
A sandwich is the quintessential cannabis snack. You can choose from the minimal-ingredient grilled cheese sandwich and add a bit of butter to amp up the flavor and crisp factor. For a sweeter treat, go for the peanut butter and jelly combination or peanut butter and banana. Another easy option is an avocado toast with Everything-But-The-Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe's. I like to use sourdough bread with nearly anything on top of it.
Quick 'N' Easy
Every person experiences the effects of dab pens differently. Some users have reported feeling overwhelming effects and the munchies. Pre-packaged foods are the usual suspects for the dab pen munchies. They can often be sugar-laden, but wholly enjoyable. When it comes to finding the right food for the dab pen munchies, preparation is key.
Popcorn's buttery and salty combination is a clear winner for a late night snack. Cereal and milk can also be easy to make. Not only is cereal a perfect option for people with a sweet tooth, but the milk can also quench your thirst. My personal favorite snack after vaping THC oil is cinnamon rolls.
It can be tempting to indulge in fast food and processed foods after taking a few puffs from your dab pen, but eating fruits and vegetables can also reduce your dab pen munchies. When you want to nibble on something, but you've already had too many Doritos, reach for hummus and carrots or celery. Healthy is subjective and I'm not a scientist, but apples and peanut butter can also be a creamy and delicious snack after vaping.
Fruit by itself is another easy fix, just make sure to wash it beforehand. Nuts like almonds, cashews, peanuts, and pistachios can be a good snack on-the-go if you're not too hungry. They're inexpensive and contain tons of vitamins and minerals.
These dab pen munchies cover a broad spread of culinary tastes. Cannabis users that know how to cook can turn to cannabis-inspired recipes to make their own concoction like rice crispy treats with Fruit Loops and Cinnamon Toast Crunch or peanut butter and jelly pancakes. The definition of dab pen munchies varies by person, but most users want something that's easy to make and delicious. Give these snacks a try anytime you want a rich and complex-tasting treat.
