You just sit down, spark your lighter, and light up, then it hits you, “the munchies”. The active ingredient in marijuana, THC, heightens our sensitivity to smell which then leads to cravings and again, “the munchies”. Everyone knows the most delicious, quick, and easy “munchie” is fast food, which dates way back. When McDonald’s first started in 1955, the menu only offered nine items, including their 15-cent burger. Burger King opened the year before in 1954 but didn’t introduce the Whopper until 1957, and it’s been on the menu ever since. Now, these are just two of our go-to “munchies”, but luckily there’s an endless supply (and demand) of fast food “munchies”.
