Okay, we’re pretty sure you don’t need to be convinced that the munchies are real anymore, right? (Though if you’re at all curious, the science behind eating high is pretty darn fascinating.) Instead, let’s focus on a more immediate question: What are some great places to eat while stoned? We’re not talking about junk food, either. At Have a Heart, we think cannabis is just one element in a healthy, happy and engaged lifestyle. So just like we don’t think lunch should be a bag of chips and a soda, we’re all about treating your body—and your mind—to healthful, fun and nourishing food. Check out 5 of our favorite Bothell places to eat while stoned. 5 Favorite Bothell Places to Eat While Stoned We think eating high can be a deeply stimulating and satisfying experience, so why waste it on empty calories?

Bamboo House 22910 Bothell Everett Hwy #103A Bothell, WA 98021 (425) 485-6737 This rather generic-looking Vietnamese joint may not look particularly promising, but don’t be deceived. You’ll find zingy, refreshing takes on one of our absolute favorite cuisines here, from rich, aromatic pho—the beef-and-noodle that may be Vietnam’s most famous culinary export—to cooling salads, springy and crunchy rice-paper rolls, and a few surprises. Bamboo House comes highly recommended for the high among us. Korea House 20615 Bothell Everett Hwy B Bothell, WA 98012 (425) 486-8866 If some Asian cuisines—Vietnamese and Japanese, for a start—are notable for their subtlety, Korean is the exact opposite.

7 Fun Seattle Spring Events to Go to When You’re High

Seattle is a beautiful and vibrant city with a rich culture and only a short 17 minute drive from Skyway, WA.  There are plenty of activities to do from sipping on your favorite beer at a small brewery to cheering on the Seahawks as the 13th man at CenturyLink field. Spring is upon us, which means we’re shedding our winter coats and have the opportunity to experience the great festivals that the pacific northwest has to offer.  The following events are some we think you would particularly enjoy after taking some time to relax with Mary Jane. These 7 fun places to go to when you’re high will make for some memorable experiences. Vegfest (April 7-8) Whether you’re a seasoned vegetarian, a beginner, or just curios, Vegfest has something for you.  Tickets are only $9.00 and this gives you access to a slew vegetarian dishes crafted by cooks from around the country.  Not only will you get to taste the food, but you’ll get to learn how to make it. The Seattle Pancakes & Booze Art Show (April 28) You read the heading to this, right?  Pancakes.  Booze.  Art.  The combination of these three treasures is deadly.  You can expect art from 50-150 local artisans and music by local DJ’s and musicians.  Live body painting is a staple of this event, so even you can become art. We don’t recommend combining booze with cannabis, so take in the delicious pancakes to satisfy your munchies and get your art on.
