Cannabis has been legal for four months now and there’s an important factor to address: media consumption while you’re high is a totally different experience than being sober or drunk. Maybe it’s your first time trying it, and you’d like to know how to have a great experience while laying across the couch with a bag of chips on the floor. Or maybe you’re a long-time cannabis connoisseur looking for some suggestions you haven’t seen before. Either way, here are some suggestions for great media experiences while you’re legally high. And I promise, no Seth Rogen.

Reggie Watts: Spatial (2016)

Reggie Watts’ unique form of musical comedy is an experience. If you enjoy comedy, rhythm and cool mouth noises, definitely give this a watch. At the end you might feel like you were transported into a different dimension and are now waking up in reality once again.

Broad City

This show starring Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson is truly a high show for everyone. They’re high half the time anyway. What could be more satisfying than feeling like you’re running around New York with them, but from your couch?

Hackers (1995)

Hackers is a truly intense film that often lacks discernible plot. If you want to watch one of the best ill-informed films about technology, this is it. Also, Angelina Jolie plays a cool hacker lady.

I will never be beautiful enough to make us beautiful together by Mira Gonzalez

I definitely believe in poetry as being the best high reading material. Gonzalez, a cannabis consumer herself, wrote this poetry book full of relatable and simultaneously ridiculous ideas. It’s truly a high read if you like introspection.

Getting Doug With High

This podcast hosted by comedian Doug Benson will make you feel like you are in the same room as Doug Benson and his guests. They get high, you get high, you’re basically all together on the same podcast. I especially recommend the episode with Aubrey Plaza and Alia Shawkat.
