By February 23, 2021April 26th, 2022No Comments

Fewer things are more satisfying than sinking into the couch with your favorite cannabis strain and enjoying a lazy day of TV and munchies. Grab some healthy snacks made with your favorite cannabis strains. Don’t forget to pour yourself some water to keep from getting cotton-mouth, then get ready for a couch-locked movie marathon with our People’s pairings of marijuana and movies.

The Best Marijuana Movies for Your Night In

When it comes to cannabis, there are plenty of inaccurate Hollywood depictions. Reefer Madness, an accidentally hilarious anti-marijuana PSA, comes to mind. That being said, there’s a wealth of fantastic films out there too, and we want to make sure that you’re starting with some of the best. After all, high-quality cannabis flower goes best with a high-quality movie.

1. The Big Lebowski

There’s nothing The Dude loves more than smoking weed—except, perhaps, a well-mixed White Russian. Stock up on pre-rolls and try to match his rate, or keep it cool with the People’s twist on the White Russian: our Hollywood Black Tie cannabis cocktail. This tasty drink combines espresso, Thai tea, and THC for an alcohol-free experience that’s perfect for watching this classic Coen Brothers movie. The Dude abides!

2. Dazed and Confused

Set in 1972, this movie is more than alright, alright? (Alright.) This coming-of-age film involves a bunch of kids smoking pot for the first time, a creepy Matthew McConaughey, and an all’s-well-that-ends-well finale. Sit back, light up your favorite cannabis flower, and you’ll be L-I-V-I-N. We recommend an OG for those back-in-the-day vibes and classic flavors. Heavy OG from Cali Fresh, perhaps?

3. Pineapple Express

Named after the classic strain of cannabis, Pineapple Express is an action movie that’s all about what happens when ordinary men land in extraordinary circumstances. Co-stars Seth Rogen and James Franco have a natural chemistry that’s dynamic and fun to watch, and the emotional scenes hit hard—almost as hard as the strain itself. Enjoy this flick with a cartridge of pure Pineapple Express from vape brand STIIIZY. You’re in the jungle now, baby.

4. Superbad

Set on the night of a high school graduation, Superbad is a movie about a crazy 24-hour period that involves bumbling cops trying to party with kids, terrible freestyle rapping, irresponsible drunkenness, and many failed attempts to buy illicit substances. Enjoy watching a young Jonah Hill crack wise with his best friend in the world, played by Michael Cera. The film is loosely based off of real world events from the life of cannabis entrepreneur and actor Seth Rogen. The party scenes aren’t complete without a little party of your own, so pop your favorite cannabis edible before the movie starts. It’ll kick in at the perfect time.

5. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle

Fast food cravings are real, and when the munchies hit, main characters Harold and Kumar feel compelled to visit White Castle. One problem: it’s not there. They flounder from a rock to a hard place through the night, eventually getting the chance to eat at their favorite burger joint—but only after suffering head trauma, saving a stranger’s life, being carjacked, punching a police officer, and going through a few other wild hijinks. It’s a crazy ride, best paired with a powerful live resin cart or live resin weed gummies. For a challenge, try to match your cannabis consumption to that of the titular characters. Good luck!

How to Watch Weed Movies Responsibly

When you know you’ll be toking up for this movie night, make sure that you’re doing it at home, or that you can get a designated driver who can take you where you need to go. Harold and Kumar may have driven around the city after smoking cannabis, but we don’t advise anyone to do so in real life. Have snacks and water on hand and within reach so that even if you’re totally couch-locked, you’ll be able to stay hydrated and satisfy your munchies.

Where to Find Cannabis for Your Weed Movie Night

The best weed movies should be paired with the very best cannabis. People’s has it all, from delicious edibles to potent flower. Plan ahead by placing an Express Order online and picking it up at our Orange County dispensary, or get free weed delivery straight to your door. When you don’t have to leave the house, you can wear whatever you want—so if you’re channeling The Dude today and chilling in a bathrobe and pants, that’s totally fine. We’re all about making it easy, and we look forward to delivering you a good time soon.
