10 best places to cure the munchies when you're high in Calgary

Apr 20 2023, 3:02 pm

You do not want to be thinking about the best places to get snacks when it’s too late.

It would be best if you had a game plan going in to not find yourself in the same predicament as Harold and Kumar.

Whether it’s 4/20 or just a regular day in your books, there’s no denying that cannabis and food go very, very well together.

It doesn’t matter if you’re smoking, vaping, or ingesting, you’ll probably get hungry on 4/20. Lucky for us, Calgary is filled with delicious spots to get some grub while you’re enjoying the effects of a little Mary Jane.

While there is no right or wrong choice in eating food while high in this city, these spots all have a chill and relaxed atmosphere with great food.

Here are the best places to get a cure for the munchies when you’re high in Calgary.

There are eight different massive 18-inch pies on the menu here, all made with fresh ingredients and homemade dough that crisps perfectly by the time it comes out. When the clock strikes 4:20, and you want pizza, this is the spot.
