As more and more states legalize cannabis, the industry is growing rapidly. What was once a small-scale industry is now becoming a multi-billion dollar one. This growth is attracting investors, entrepreneurs, and businesses of all types. What’s driving this trend? Some point to the potential for large profits, while others highlight the positive social impact of legalization. Whatever the reasons may be, it’s clear that marijuana is attracting people from all walks of life, and online headshops like Smoke Cartel are the latest trend in the industry. These shops offer a wide variety of products that will allow you to get elevated in ways you never imagined. From bongs and bubblers to flowers and concentrates, there’s something for everyone at an online headshop.
Weed and movies have always been a popular combination. There’s something about smoking a joint and then popping in a DVD, or finding something new on Netflix, that just seems to work. If you’re looking for some good movie recommendations to watch after smoking weed, look no further.
This list has something for everyone, from stoner comedies to mind-bending dramas, these films will keep you entertained all night long. So, roll up a fatty, put on your favorite movie, and enjoy!
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
If you’re in the mood for a movie that accurately depicts space flight, has one of the best atmospheres created in a film, and doesn’t contain a lot of dialogue, then 2001: A Space Odyssey is perfect for you.
The film is about mankind trying to find out its origins, but it’s not alone and has the help of an intelligent supercomputer H.A.L. 9000. As Neil deGrasse Tyson once said “the universe is under no obligation to make sense to you”, but maybe it will while stoned, watching this movie.
Pineapple Express (2008)
The next movie on this list is probably one of the most iconic stoner films of the last few years, Pineapple Express. The humor in this movie is funny enough sober, but when stoned, it’s even better and more relatable.
The film follows Dale, a process server, who has to escape from a murderous drug lord. He isn’t doing this alone, he has to work with his drug dealer, Saul. This is a must-see if you’re in the mood for an evening full of laughs.
Kung Fu Hustle (2004)
What happens if you take the classic kung fu movies that have people flying across a room, and combine it with essentially borderline superpowers and ridiculous humor? You get Kung Fu Hustle.
The movie follows the events that take place in a small neighborhood after a notorious gang takes things a step too far in order to show the residents that they’re in control. Amidst the ridiculous antics, special effects, and satire, you can’t help but feel good throughout.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Another cult classic that you absolutely have to watch while lighting one up is Pulp Fiction. The movie is ranked as the 10th greatest movie ever, and starring Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, just to name a few of the big stars involved, its no surprise.
Without giving too much of the plot away, the film follows the lives of a boxer, two mobsters, two low-level criminals, and a gangster’s wife, as their lives intertwine.
There’s just something about watching an animated film while stoned that makes it even better, and one film that doesn’t fail to impress is Tangled. When you realize that the artists wanted to actually make the film look like watercolors, it gets even better.
If the movie feels familiar while watching it, that’s because it’s a rendition of Rapunzel, who escapes from her overcontrolling mother, and goes on an adventure with the charming thief Flynn.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)
Another animated movie that will keep you entertained for the better part of your high is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and when this movie was released, it was everywhere. There’s just something endearing about watching someone try until they succeed, kind of.
The movie follows an inventor named Flint Lockwood who finally creates something that makes him popular, until it backfires, and he has to save the day.
The Matrix (1999)
Probably one of the most iconic movies in the world, and the best movie to watch while stoned, is The Matrix. The movie stars Keanu Reeves as Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, and Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus.
The plot of the movie alone should make you understand why it’s a stoner’s favorite; Neo discovers that his life is a simulation and has to help a small group of survivors overcome an all-powerful cyber-intelligence.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
The final movie on this list is another animation that also delves into questions of the universe. This isn’t your typical Spider-Man, and the art style that is used in the movie is beautiful and reminiscent of classic comic books.
The movie follows teenager Miles Morales, as he becomes the new Spider-Man, at least in his universe, and has to team up with other web crawlers to save all universes.
