Personal preferences on shows we watch is subjective; like your favorite strain, everyone has different taste in things to watch. The following is a compilation of my favorite binge-worthy cannabis related shows. Roll up, pop an edible, gather some snacks, and get comfy to tune into these shows!
This documentary dives deep into the relationship and impact popular culture has had on cannabis in the United States. Experts in the cannabis and music industries recount their experiences. Experts like Snoop Dog, B-Real, Steven Hagar, and Damian Marley talk about their role in cannabis and how it has impacted their individual careers. As well as talk about how cannabis has been negatively stigmatized since the start of the ‘war on drugs’. Grass is Greener is an informative show to watch while you smoke or eat an edible. This show airs on Hulu.
Now, this is a series by Netflix, first I would like to disclose that Disjointed portrays some negative stereotypes of stoners and shows inaccuracies in what you are allowed and not allowed to do in a dispensary. So, if you watch this show, take it light-heartedly. For example, throughout the show you can see employees and customers smoking in the dispensary on the sales floor, that is not something you can do in Colorado dispensaries. “Commercials” appear on screen in between segments and are quite comical. The show also touches on topics that I think need to be talked more about, like veterans using cannabis to help them manage their PTSD. As well as other taboo topics that I think are important to talk about. For example, one of the characters on the show dropped out of medical school and now works full time as a budtender and is afraid of what her traditional and conservative family will think and say when they find out. The show also talks about activism and social justice surrounding cannabis.
