Munchies by Vice News

Subscribers: 5M

With over 5 million subscribers, Munchies by Vice News is easily the most popular channel on this list. But, we can’t put it higher on our list because it’s not explicitly a cannabis YouTube channel. Instead, the channel highlights foods of various cultures — some of which have been infused with cannabis, and some not. So, you may get to enjoy weed-related content on the Munchies channel, but you can’t expect it from every video. Still, it’s a wonderful channel if you don’t mind making your mouth water while learning about some of the yummiest food across the world.
