Weed movies on netflix 2020

Packing a bowl, sitting back, and watching the best stoner movies on Netflix is one of the true pleasures in life, but finding something to stream can be an ordeal — especially if you’ve already smoked. We’ve all been there. Eyes glazed over and surrounded by snacks, we scroll endlessly through the offerings on Netflix. Until they get with the program and make weed movies on Netflix a real, searchable genre, we’ll have to do the hard work of parsing out the best content to enjoy through a smoky haze.

We decided to make things easier for you by rounding up a list of classic and more unorthodox movies to watch high on Netflix right now. For those looking for a longer love affair with their stoner streaming service, we didn’t stop at the best movies to watch while high on Netflix—we also found enough binge-worthy TV shows to warrant a Netflix weed series subgenre.

The list includes everything from cult stoner classics such as Planet Earth and Mac & Devin Go to High School to unintentionally weed-friendly TV series like The Great British Baking Show.

Browse the 10 best stoner movies and TV shows on Netflix below and let us know your favorite go-to weed companion in the comments.

Tidying Up With Marie Kondo

If you belong to the special breed of stoners who get weirdly productive while high, Netflix’s Tidying Up With Marie Kondo might help channel that Sativa-induced energy. The show is based on Kondo’s bestselling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and involves mass decluttering, with Kondo helping folks sift through piles of stuff they might want to keep or shed based on whether or not a thing “sparks joy.” The ideal Netflix weed show for when you’re sparking up some joy of your own.

Reincarnated

Take a trip to Jamaica and get high with the godfather of stoners, Snoop Dogg (or as this documentary introduces him, Snoop Lion). The film directed by Vice alum Andy Capper, follows the prolific musician’s explorations of reggae and Rastafari culture and transformation into Snoop Lion. The documentary delves into Snoop’s spiritual journey as well as his discovery of anew style of music, as he records his 12th studio album, and first reggae, record Reincarnated.

Kevin Hart: Irresponsible

There’s nothing like getting the giggles while baked out of your brain and we honestly can’t imagine a better time to enjoy stand-up comedy. Kevin Hart is always a safe bet for a chuckle, but expect side-splitting, roaring laughter while you’re high. In Irresponsible Hart hilariously talks about his personal and very public ups and downs, guaranteed to have you literally laughing out loud.

Our Planet

If you weren’t already aware of how perfect wildlife documentaries are as a Netflix weed show go-to, shame on you. Trust us, there’s nothing more engrossing than watching nature documentaries when you’re blazed. Seeing animals do anything in slow motion as your brain slows to a crawl is one of life’s greatest pleasures and David Attenborough’s soothing voice is an added bonus. Experience the planet’s natural beauty in spectacular scope with Our Planet, from the bluest oceans, to snowy mountain peaks and scorching deserts, you might even shed a tear.

American Vandal

American Vandal was Netflix’s most-watched show of 2017, and if you haven’t seen it, getting high is a good way to binge the whole season. The series takes place in a high school and revolves around a crime: 27 faculty cars are vandalized with phallic images, resulting in a witch hunt for the perpetrator. The mockumentary perfectly satirizes the true crime genre, and you’ll actually find yourself caught up in the burning question: who drew the dicks?

Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman

Kantaro: The Sweet Tooth Salaryman follows a Tokyo businessman (aka salaryman) who leads a double life, skiving off his day job to sample some of the city’s most indulgent desserts. But this is no regular food show, rather a mix of philosophical musings, office politics, and trippy sequences. Each episode is named after a Japanese dessert and features such glorious food photography that it’ll leave you drooling — munchies or not.

Mac & Devin Go to High School

Sometimes you just need to go with the classics and press play on one of the best stoner movies on Netflix. While Mac & Devin Go to High School is no Friday or Half Baked, it deserves a spot on your smoking watch list. The movie follows Snoop Dogg’s struggle to graduate from high school, assisted by a very fresh-faced Wiz Khalifa in his acting debut. The movie is classic stoner fare, with plenty of weed jokes and a particularly memorable dentist visit, not to mention a next-level soundtrack that gifted us the forever summer anthem “Young, Wild & Free.”

The Great British Baking Show

If you smoked a bit too much and are getting paranoid, what you need is the sheer wholesomeness and low-stakes entertainment of The Great British Baking Show. The series puts a group of amateur bakers to the test as they vie for the title of best amateur baker. As you can tell from the trailer above, there’s sharp criticism, drama, and lots and lots of delicious baked goods, so we recommend having some snacks handy.

The Circle

Reality TV is binge-worthy under normal circumstances, The Circle is especially addictive — The Circle while high? Out of this world. Delve deep into your paranoia and weed-infused conspiracy theories while watching the show which is equal parts Big Brother and Catfish. The trippy and all-too-real series features contestants who live in an apartment but never see each other, live virtual lives and judge each other on social media.

Ultimate Beastmaster

While Ultimate Beastmaster is 100 percent not aimed at stoners, there’s no escaping the simple fact that it’s the best TV show to watch while high once you’ve exhausted the robust catalog of stoner movies on Netflix. Firstly, it’s created by Sylvester Stallone, which is reason enough to watch. Secondly, it follows over-enthusiastic athletes as they attempt to pass an over-the-top obstacle course called “The Beast” in the hope of being crowned “The Beastmaster.” The entire series is ridiculous, but once blazed, it levels up to a fall-on-the-floor-laughing viewing experience — trust us.

8. Cooked with Cannabis

Who among us hasn’t lost an afternoon staring at a cooking show, imagining what every dish tastes like? Netflix’s Cooked with Cannabis, hosted by “Milkshake” singer-turned-chef Kelis and cannabis cuisine expert Leather Storrs, adds a competitive edge to the art of weed cuisine as three guest chefs compete for a $10,000 prize. It’s a little low on stakes at times, but is a generally enjoyable watch with plenty of mouth-watering creations to gaze at.

7. Floor Is Lava

Witness strangers yeeting themselves into oblivion with one of Netflix’s best reality shows of the year. Floor Is Lava is exactly the show it sounds like, turning the beloved living room game into a full-scale obstacle course with a cash prize at the finish line.

6. The Speed Cubers

Few things are as charming as watching hobbyists celebrate their unique interests and tremendous talents. In just 40 minutes, Netflix’s The Speed Cubers introduces its audience to the mind-blowing world of competitive speed-cubing and finds a compelling, character-driven narrative at its core. Inspirational yet goofy, this short film offers an excellent bit of comfort content.

5. Maniac

Patrick Somerville’s limited series is without question the most thematically heavy title on this list. So if you want to keep things on the lighter side, make Maniac your last choice. That said, this compelling story of a friendship forged from an interdimensional drug trial is an excellent pick if you’re seeking something visually complex and narratively mind-bendy. Jonah Hill and Emma Stone give astounding performances that are both multidimensional and captivating.

4. Have A Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics

Let’s be honest: The best time to hear someone talk about being high is when you are also high. Sting, Sarah Silverman, Nick Offerman, A$AP Rocky, and more share their experiences with psychedelics in this bizarre documentary from Donick Cary. Funny and thoughtful, Have A Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics offers equal parts entertainment and insight. As Sting puts it, “I don’t think psychedelics are the answer to the world’s problems. But they could be a start.”

3. Midnight Gospel

Duncan Trussell and Pendleton Ward’s The Midnight Gospel is one of many stellar adult cartoons to enjoy while high. Tuca and Bertie, Big Mouth, BoJack Horseman, they’re all great. Still, The Midnight Gospel goes further, farther, and faster in terms of visual interest, existential themes, and hypnotizing soundscapes. If you haven’t watched it yet, buckle up and prepare to be changed.

2. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Look, we don’t put Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on practically every list we curate because we “want” to. We put Scott Pilgrim vs. The World on practically every list we curate because we have to. Edgar Wright’s 2010 triumph combines comic book aesthetics with video game pacing and superhero styling for a truly epic Canadian love story. It’s great to watch whenever, but extra great when you’re open to a “convenient subspace highway running through your head.”

1. John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City

Watching any comedy special you love is a great option for entertaining yourself while high — and Netflix does have a mountain of options to choose from on that front. (Seriously, here’s 24 of the best.) That said, John Mulaney’s 2018 special Kid Georgeous at Radio City will always hold the #1 spot in our humor loving hearts. “There’s a HORSE. In the HOSPITAL.
