Top 10 Movies to Watch While High
What’s the ultimate purpose of consuming weed? It’s about having a pleasant experience for the body and mind. It’s mostly about relaxing and focusing your mind on something other than worries. Cannabis does have such power. So if you really want to focus on a good movie without thinking of anything else, smoking some weed beforehand might be a good idea.
The most important thing to remember is that cannabis is good for you when consumed in moderation. Anything above the proper dose will cause side effects that aren’t pleasant. The other important thing is that you should choose the right movies to watch while high. We can help with that!
Top 10 Movies: What to Watch Stoned?
1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Some movies are meant to be watched when you’re high. Make sure you have some candy nearby! When you combine weed with colorful sweets on the screen, hunger is inevitable! This movie is smarter, funnier, and more realistic when you’re under the pleasant influence of cannabis. Some of the scenes (especially the ones in the beginning) might make you emotional. But then Johnny Depp appears and makes everything fun… and weird!
2. The Lego Movie (2014)
If you’re looking for fun things to watch when high, this is a perfect choice. Admit it: you used to imagine your Legos come to life when you were a child. This movie plays with that idea, and weed makes it more realistic than ever. Plus, The Lego Movie has too many jokes that you could easily miss out on without a sharp focus (which you’ll with the right strain of weed).
3. The Fountain (2006)
Some movies are too complex to understand with your usual, unfocused mind. The Fountain gains a whole other dimension with weed. You start understanding Aronofsky’s hints on mortality, the meaning of life, and absurdity.
4. The Matrix (1999)
Under normal circumstances, The Matrix might look like the coolest action movie you’ve ever seen. When you get deeper, you realize that it’s deeply philosophical and closer to reality than you assumed. Cannabis helps you grasp that deeper meaning.
5. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
This is one of those movies that one could only watch when high. Being taken into an alternate reality is not easy when you’re not focused. With some Sativa-dominant weed, you’ll understand the dystopian message that Anthony Burgess meant to send through the novel. It’s about the duality of human nature, which can go both ways. We all have a dose of Alex deep inside. The question is: how well do we keep it under control?
6. Ted (2012)
How about a teddy bear who loves some Mary Jane? Ted is one of those classics we can’t ignore when listing good high movies! It’s even funnier when you’re high and you watch it with friends. Ted is really stupid at times, but its satirical vibe makes it smart.
7. Oblivion (2013)
Apocalyptic scenes are so disturbing when you’re really focused on the idea the movie is trying to present. You’ve already imagined something similar, and now you’re absorbing the scenes as the most realistic thing you’ve ever seen. Oblivion deserves a position on this list not only because of those scenes, but also because of the massive plot twist at the end.
8. The Big Lebowski (1998)
Okay; did you really think we’d leave out The Dude from this list? The crazy scenes depict your own life to some extent. You’ll definitely remember some of the situations that made you think: what the hell is going on here? His Dudeness confirms: we’ve all been there, Dude!
The movie’s characters may be shallow and silly. But the overall intellectual humor of the movie presents ideas about pacifism and nihilism. Behind all that laughter and silliness, it’s actually a philosophical film.
9. Inception (2010)
Watching Inception when you’re completely sober is such a waste. A balanced strain will make your mind more lucid, and it will help you understand its plot in a much better way. Christopher Nolan respects your intelligence, and he relies on you to be smart enough to understand Inception. You’ll love him for that.
10. Fight Club (1999)
The hype around Fight Club might have made the movie mainstream, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t watch it. It’s one of those films that impress you so much by the end that you’ll reconstruct the entire story and set a date to watch it again. The twist makes this movie enjoyable to watch countless times.
Hey; it might even inspire you to write. What’s the message of Fight Club? Is it about self-loathing and analyzing what failures of human beings we are?
The Right Strain and the Right Movie? That’s a Winning Combination!
You need a different mood for each movie on the list above. In most cases, you’ll need a Sativa-dominant strain that keeps your mind focused and sharp. But you want it to be balanced with some Indica in its composition, so you can stay calm and relaxed while watching the movie. Get informed about your weed! Then, start choosing movies to watch. You’ll like the experience so much that you won’t end it with a single movie night.
