As they try to find the lost vehicle, they run into some oddball characters and discover hints about their wild night. Some of the insane things they do include stealing cash from a stripper and getting chased by a pack of wild ostriches. 

4. Scary Movie

Let’s be honest. When you’re stoned and in the mood for some horror, it needs to have some humor, so you don’t kill your buzz. If you’re trying to enjoy a spooky winter holiday, the nostalgia of this flick is perfect for your festive celebration. 

Scary Movie is the ultimate stoner horror movie with everything from exaggerated Matrix fight scenes, damsels in distress, and plenty of stereotypical teenagers. It’s a rollercoaster of horror, comedy, and drama.

5. The Marijuana Show

Who wants to be a marijuana millionaire? This series is a good show to watch when you’re high. It helps prospective entrepreneurs succeed in the cannabis industry with a massive cash injection. 

The Marijuana Show is one of the great stoner shows for those wanting to enter the weed market. Hosts Wendy and Karen were voted as the Top 50 Most Important Women in the Cannabis Industry.

It’s different from typical weed shows. This series breaks the lazy-stoner stereotype by showing the grit it takes to enter and succeed in the marijuana industry.

6. Pineapple Express 

Directed by David Gordon Green, Pineapple Express is a must-watch stoner action flick written by two of Hollywood’s funniest stars, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

The plot revolves around process server Dale Denton played by Rogen, and an airhead pot dealer Saul Silver played by James Franco. Dale accidentally witnesses a murder and drops his blunt filled with a strain only Saul had at that time. 

Things take a darker turn from that point, with the unlikely pair being the target of the murderers. This movie is filled to the brim with potheads, big blunts, exciting cannabis strains, and hair-standing action.

7. Cooked with Cannabis

Imagine if Hell’s Kitchen was held by stoners. Cooked with Cannabis is one of the good TV shows to watch while high. It’s a chilled-out cooking series where chefs compete for a $10,000 prize. They create an array of unique infused dishes to wow a panel of weed-loving judges. 

Co-hosts Kelis and Leather Storrs walk you through the California show as chefs deliver educational content about each strain of THC or CBD extract they use. 

Cooked with Cannabis is packed with stoner puns, jokes, and tips on creating weed-infused dishes. If you’re prone to getting the munchies, grab some snacks while enjoying this delicious show. 

8. Sausage Party 

You know those times when you have the munchies, but you don’t want to keep stuffing your face? Guilt-trip yourself into fighting hunger with this adult-animated movie. It’s about groceries that think humans are gods who pick them for a divine purpose.

Frank, a sausage, his hot dog roll girlfriend Brenda, and a few others go on a mission to discover the truth about what the gods do with them. When they learn their true purpose is to be eaten, they’re horrified and start fighting back. 

Towards the end, the movie becomes a bloodbath between food and humans. It’s hilarious, and the animated gore is unique and entertaining. This flick is extremely raunchy, considering the multiple sexual innuendos and the fact that the groceries have an orgy at the end.
