With something for almost everyone, it’s almost a given that Netflix would have a bunch of weed-related movies, documentaries and shows. But due to the amount of content that can be streamed, it’s not always easy to find the said titles, which is why you should use this handy list for the next time you’re on the couch (and, hopefully, elevated).
1. Super High Me (2008)
As a green version of Super Size Me, this documentary by Doug Benson shows what happens to him after he consumes cannabis for 30 days, with results that might actually surprise you. Sure, the world has changed a lot in the decade since it was released, but Super High Me is a classic that will hold your attention (and, of course, have you laughing).
2. Dough (2016)
Sure, the synopsis sounds quite predictable but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work, as Dough is a funny and heartwarming comedy. Taking cues from Saving Grace, this British comedy tells the story of an old Jewish baker that is struggling to keep his business afloat, until he employs a young Muslim apprentice that drops cannabis in the dough, sending sales sky high.
3. Rolling Papers (2015)
With the legalization of weed in Colorado, the “green rush” began and The Denver Post was the major media outlet at the center of it all. The documentary chronicles how The Denver Post became the first newspaper to have first cannabis-centric section, with a dedicated editor and team of staff and freelance writers.
4. Half Baked (1998)
While it’s not universally loved, there is something about Half Baked, which continues to entertain – mostly to people who smoke, mind you. Written by Dave Chappelle and Neal Brennan, the co-creators of Chappelle’s Show, it’s safe to say that Half Baked is definitely your above-average stoner comedy.
5. Joe Rogan “Triggered” (2016)
Live from San Francisco, veteran comedian Joe Rogan comes right out and lets the audience know he’s “high as fuck” and that’s a good thing for them. The first five minutes of Rogan’s special are a must-see for anyone who has ingested an edible before and from there you’ll be hooked – guaranteed.
Coming soon: Disjointed (2017)
Disjointed is a soon-to-be-released Netflix sitcom, created by the sultan of sitcoms that is Chuck Lorre, which stars Kathy Bates (Misery) as the owner of a dispensary that is the center of the show. While the teaser for Disjointed dropped on 4/20, you’ll have to wait until August for the new series. This show looks set to be a huge smash, with a smart script that seamlessly blends cannabis facts and culture with the mainstream.
