When you think of the best weed movies you could possibly watch, whether alone or with friends, some pretty cliche comedies likely come to mind; Pineapple Express, Half Baked, Cheech and Chong. Not saying these films aren’t great and classic, but this list presents some more unusual high choices. When you’re high, your mind is often being taken on a journey.
Marijuana can make you think and feel even deeper than you have before, and best of all the types of realizations, or should I say hi-deas that you can have while baked, are endless. Therefore, what better time to watch a movie that accurately pairs with your favorite strains of weed. For a stoner, there’s truly nothing better than having a great movie to watch watching a movie that gives you some brilliant epiphany, while hitting that beloved bull or munching away on a delicious brownie.
So, grab some ganja and get ready to journey into the land of…
4 surprisingly great movies to watch while you’re stoned.
1. This Is Spinal Tap
Okay, this is probably one of the more mindless movies on the list, but Spinal Tap truly is a completely underrated stoner’s classic. What better way to generate some laughs then listening to a bunch of British musicians bicker with one another, each possessing their own unique accent. Plus, who can forget the classic lines of “it goes up to eleven”, or the way in which things just spontaneously combust. This movie is sure to bring humor to anyone’s night, especially the night of a pure stoner. Our favorite weed to pair this movie up with?
Xanadu, one of the most uplifting Sativa strain highs you’ll ever experience.
This strain will increase your energy and make you super giggly, a perfect combination with the dorky humor of Spinal Tap.
2. The Grand Budapest Hotel
A Wes Anderson classic. A director with the skill and ability to create a visual journey with the use of his set design, color schemes, color grading and attention to detail. This movie has so much to focus on, while yet still being a tastefully filmed and scripted quirky comedy.
The reefer we recommend for this sense enhancing movie is Space Queen. This strain of cannabis has an uplifting and creative high, perfect for observing and paying attention to details, especially those strategically placed in a movie by Wes Anderson and his crew.
3. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
A stellar and sci-fi oriented movie, based on the classic novel by Douglas Adams. This title has a strong cult following. On top of being a movie with dedicated fanatics, it’s a wonderful film to bake to. Filled with mind boggling moments where you are questioning ‘what really is reality?’, yet still having unique and odd moments of comedy, this is truly a different film, one that will test your brain, especially when you are high. The strain we recommend for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a euphoric one, known as Alchemy. It’s a brilliantly balanced hybrid, with an energizing yet dreamy blaze.
This film is possibly one of the more melancholy ones on this list, but the unique filmography of this movie is simply phenomenal. With scenes shot around the UK, the landscape and use of this naturally gloomy weather is impeccable. This is a coming of age style romantic strange comedy, but it’s not simply made for younger generations. Rather, due to the complexity of this film and its various levels of depth, it truly could appeal to all age ranges. The strain that would be best for this type of film is one we adore called G.O.A.T. It’s a relaxing hybrid that keeps you focused and content, the perfect qualities for watching a film such as Submarine.
So, the next time you’re ready for a stoner’s movie night in, grab one of these perfectly unusual high films, and prepare to gain a new perspective and a new insight into life. Most of all, try and hunt down some of the cannabis strains recommended. Although some of them are a little less popular than most strains on the market, the types mentioned above will truly enhance your viewing experience, for they are specifically tailored for these types of movies. Although marijuana has many benefits, it can have some negative effects as well, so proper discernment should be practiced when consuming marijuana products, and the user is solely responsible for his or her own usage.
