Munchie-inducing strains perfect for Thanksgiving

Carolyn BerkNovember 24, 2021

The day before Thanksgiving is one of the most popular times to buy weed, earning it the name Green Wednesday. In fact, in 2020 it was the biggest sales day of the entire year! 

It makes sense that weed would pair perfectly with a celebration that's all about feasting with family and friends. If you're especially looking forward to the food portion of the holiday, then there's a canna-copia of strains that can elevate your culinary experience. 

Enjoying these munchie-sparking strains this Thanksgiving can help you feel even more grateful - especially for weed!


Jilly Bean

Jilly Bean is known for its fruity flavor and ability to heighten senses - including taste. But this sativa is also great if you're feeling particularly patriotic. Its breeder, MzJill, is known for supporting veteran-related causes, including a naming a strain in honor of her father, a Vietnam War vet. 


Jilly Bean is a slightly sativa-dominant strain, deriving from Space Queen crossed with Orange Skunk. This sweet and citrusy flower starts off with a euphoric sativa-like buzz and mellows out into a relaxed feeling more reminiscent of its indica roots.

Durban Poison

Just the scent of Durban Poison may leave you drooling. A spicy and sweet candy scent proceeds an earthy flavor reminiscent of a campfire. Many people who have tried this strain say it left them in a ravenous state. In fact, this trait of Durban Poison makes it a popular aid for nausea or lack of appetite. 


Durban Poison is a highly potent and treasured cannabis sativa strain from the South African city of Durban. This beautiful flower has large resin glands that create a strong, yet productive, high. Newcomers beware: With testing generally revealing around 25% THC content, Durban Poison can pack a serious punch.


Sample some Stardawg and you'll be like a dog anxiously waiting for a meal. Along with its ability to stimulate your stomach, this strain can provide a rush of invigoration and joy. If you want to be discreet during your gathering, keep in mind that this strain is particularly pungent and should be stored in a sealed container.  


StarDawg is a sativa-dominant strain bred in the Bay Area by crossing ChemDawg 4 and the powerfully stimulating TresDawg. The result is a super-powered strain with THC percentages ranging anywhere from 16-22%.


Banana Kush

The indica-leaning hybrid Banana Kush will help you appreciate not just the meal, but also the folks you're sharing with. People who have tried it say it made them feel talkative, giggly, and all-around social while relishing pure relaxation. 


Why are people going bananas for Banana Kush? This Indica-leaning hybrid provides bunches of benefits that many find quite a-peeling.

Peanut Butter Breath

Nothing motivates the munchies quite like Peanut Butter Breath!  This hybrid is notorious for its whopping potency and the furious force of hunger it inspires. Be prepared to pig out after a puff of Peanut Butter Breath. 


Peanut Butter Breath is an indica-dominant hybrid that despite its nutty name, does not have an overpowering peanut taste – it's more earthy with a hint of pine. This night time strain is best suited for unwinding at home, watching a movie. After about two hours, the indica-dominance really takes over, in the form of ravenous munchies.

Miracle Alien Cookie (MAC)

You'll be craving much more than cookies after sampling this strain! Fans of MAC say it provides a balanced high that will have you chill yet completely present to enjoy every minute of your meal. 


Miracle Alien Cookies (MAC) may sound like an abstruse dessert whipped up on an episode of the Great Intergalactic Baking Show. In reality, this balanced hybrid strain may be more familiar than you'd expect.


Black D.O.G.

If a powerful food coma doesn't leave you immobile, then Black D.O.G. definitely will. This indica usually leaves people glued to the couch in a full body melt. As this high wears on, you may feel ready to slide into sleepiness. 


Looking to flop down into comfort after a rough dog-eat-dog kind of day? Then the indica strain Black D.O.G. may become your new best friend! 

Chocolate OG

Need a second wind to help you gobble down dessert? Chocolate OG is a delicious delight that may blast you away with THC levels that can reach up to 30%!


If you want to treat yourself at the end of the day, you can't do better than indulging in a bowl of Chocolate OG. This heavy and heavenly indica will leave you luxuriating in a full mind and body melt as you drift into a deep, delicious slumber.


The indica NF1 can increase your senses and leave you both peckish and peacefully pensive. Although it may promote tranquil vibes, this strain isn't known for being particularly sedating, sparing you the embarrassment of accidentally snoozing and snoring on the sofa. 


NF1 is a hybrid with some very well-known parents—Northern Lights and Chemdawg. This strain brings together the piney scent of Northern Lights with the diesel aroma of Chemdawg. This cultivar offers long-lasting physical relaxation with some mental uplift.
