The Best Movies To Watch While Stoned

You have bought your cannabis from your chosen dispensary. You may have grown your cannabis, ideally from 2Fast4Buds, and now you are smoking it. Sometimes when you get high you can zone out and do nothing at all, other times you may be eating 3,4,5 bags of sweets randomly in the middle of the day but more times than not you will probably be looking for a good movie to watch.

Some people argue that movies are actually better when you are stoned, whether you are a deep thinker, love a good laugh or want to reflect more deeply on the realities of the world, we have selected a range of movies which we believe are a cut above the rest to watch when you are stoned.

Dude, Where’s My Car? (2002)

Dude, Where’s My Car? Came out in 2002 and stars Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott and quickly became the generation’s stoner comedy, with two of the generations most loveable doofuses.

Roommates Jesse and Chester are both extremely loveable but have a few screws loose. They are stoners and both work as pizza delivery men. They wake up one morning with very little recollection of what they did the night before due to being high and wasted and also that Jesse’s car is missing. They decide the best way to find the car is to get into the mindset of the night before and to get wasted again to try and find the car. It is a very lighthearted film and full of laughs which is the perfect watch for when you’re stoned.

Pineapple Express (2008)

Pineapple Express came out in 2008 and stars James Franco and Seth Rogan. The plot starts when a cannabis dealer and his server witness the murder of their boss and they need to run from the mobsters in the midst of lots of ‘Pineapplie Express’ which is the newest drug on the market for stoners in the area. A classic movie in the stoner genre and keeps to the story of the genre but is able to subvert away from the rules of tradition too. A true classic to pop on the TV whilst you’re high.

Scary Movie (2000)

If you are a horror movie fan but you want something a little bit more light hearted this movie is quite literally the best of both worlds. Including a spin off of all of your favourite movies this movie really is full of laughs.

Out in 2000 and starring Anna Faris, Marlon Wayans, Jon Abrahams and many many more stars. The film was so successful that they actually made 4 more! If you enjoyed the first one this means you have plenty more to watch to fill your evening perfectly. Get your popcorn ready.

Ted (2012)

Ted came out in 2012 and stars Mark Whalberg, Seth MacFarlane and of course Mila Kunis. People say that magic is not real but you have to believe in a little bit of magic when you watch Ted. One day a little boy is laying in bed with his teddy bear and wishes that he could talk, the next day the little boy wakes up and his teddy bear is alive. Eventually everyone grows up, this means Ted too.

This film is absolutely hilarious and one of a kind. If you enjoy it there is also a second movie too. This boundary pushing humour will make you laugh the whole way through and is the perfect lighthearted film to watch while smoking.

21 Jump Street (2012)

2012 was the year of the stoner genre as it also gave us 21 Jump Street, The hilarious comedy starring Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube. The story follows Jenko and Schmidt who are rookie cops, paired together to go back to high school to find the source of a dangerous drug. The two make many mistakes, make friends with the wrong people but will they threaten the operation all together. This light hearted action comedy will keep you gripped to the edge of your seat whilst also leaving you in tears of laughter.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (2009)

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs came out in 2009 and both the first movie and the second movie are so much fun! You may think that because they are animated that it is for children but this couldn’t be further from the truth, many people who smoke weed have said it is the best film to watch whilst high.

The film is about a scientist Flint Lockwood whose inventions never really seem to go to plan. His community goes into crisis because the local sardine cannery is shut down and this inspires Flint to have a go at his latest invention and low and behold it goes wrong but this time something amazing happens. Food starts falling from the sky (We know the dream right?) This brings in a huge amount of tourists to the area and it seems that Flint has saved the day, but there is more to the story which you will have to watch to find out! No spoilers here.

Our Planet (2019)

Okay okay, so technically not a movie but we couldn’t leave Our Planet off the list. The world is amazing in so many ways but watching Our Planet whilst high makes everything 10 times better and 10 times more out of this world. Voiced by David Attenborough this TV mini series is very relaxing to watch whilst high.

Our Planet is a documentary which focuses on the diverse habitats of the world around us from the depths of the remote Arctic to the deep oceans which are mostly unexplored to the vast and beautiful landscapes of Africa. Explore the world from the comfort of your home.

The Cornetto Trilogy: Hot Fuzz (2007), Shaun of the Dead (2004) & The World’s End (2013)

We could not finish this list without The famous Cornetto Trilogy. These films are brilliant for so many different reasons and are the perfect selection of films to watch whilst you get stoned. A comedy, a comedy horror and an action comedy all starring the talented Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. You could watch these films back to back and feel a range of emotions whilst high.
