Getting high on weekends, or any day of the week, is more fun and enjoyable when coupled with some activity. While some prefer bringing out the inner chef in them after a doobie (because anything tastes good by that point), others love to have fun conversations. Movies can be definitely attributed as one of the go to activity of stoners. Instead of zoning out on our phones, which many stoners end up doing, watching a good movie can truly enhance the experience of being high. But what is the best genre of movies to watch high?
Although the genres can differ largely according to one’s tastes, comedies and mild thriller films are what is preferred by the majority of stoners. Getting high can enhance the humour content of comedies, and good thrillers can have the “blow the mind” effect. Movies which are largely violent and of the horror genre are not recommended as it could lead to a bad trip.
Movies always work the charm in having a good stoned experience. Therefore we have listed 25 movies on Netflix which would be awesome to watch high.
Caution- This is not a ranked list, it is simply a suggestive take to aid you in picking a movie to watch while you grab onto some munchies.
