60 Shows on Netflix That Chronic TV Bingers Should Try Watching While High
Don’t ask us why some shows are infinitely better when you’re smoking weed, because we don’t have an answer. What we do know, however, is that some series on Netflix are basically made for watching while high, like “Somebody Feed Phil,” “The Great British Baking Show,” “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” and “Easy-Bake Battle.” Animated shows like “Big Mouth,” “BoJack Horseman,” “F Is For Family,” and “Tuca & Bertie” are also great to watch when you’re stoned.
Don’t get us wrong – all these shows are just as fantastic sober. But when you mix them with weed, you’re even more likely to get your mind blown (or some serious high munchies). We’ve put together a list of shows available to stream on Netflix that pair perfectly with cannabis, so next time you decide to Netflix and blaze, be sure to binge one of these. And if you’re in the mood for a movie, definitely check out “How High 2,” “Mac & Devin Go to High School,” “Always Be My Maybe,” “Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics,” or “The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience.”
