Don’t you hate it when you’re all ready to Netflix and chill and then you can’t decide what you want to watch? Matching the movie or show to the vibe is truly an overlooked skill. Sure, you’ve heard Ozarks is good but maybe it’s too heavy for the stoned vibe you have going on. And maybe you have you already finished the top Netflix shows like Tiger King and Avatar the Last Airbender. You could always rewatch the Office again but maybe you want to switch it up for once? Damn, there’s so many options to stream and finding stoner movies on Netflix only gets harder once we’re buzzed.
We (the experts of all things stoners and Netflix content) are here to give you a good overview of the best stoner movies on Netflix. Whether you’re by yourself or with your Tinder date, avoid the mindless scrolling and awkward silences and so you can focus on chilling.
We’ve even broken up these stoner movies on Netflix into 4 categories for you: Raunchy, Lighthearted, Educational, and Stand Up. Pick your vibe and then pick a flick.
This parody of the most famous scary movies is honestly a classic at this point. It’s got stupidity, early 2000 and late 1990 references, and Anna Ferris. What more could you want? It will give you easy laughs and a huge dose of nostalgia. Warning: You’re in for some cringey flashback moments as they yell “WAZZUP."
Do you want more dumbasses and more gore? How about more Canada? Of course you do. As far as stoner movies go, that's the formula for success. Tucker and Dale vs Evil is for you. Getting stoned with your friends and laughing at these bumbling idiots trying to avoid murdering their unexpected guests almost seems like a stoner rite of passage at this point.
In one of the best stoner movies on Netflix, a talking joint named Slowburn guides you through the antics of Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg pretending to be high school students.
Slowburn takes ample pauses for smoke breaks but warns you in the first five minutes: “If you’re unfortunate right now and don’t have any weed, I’m sorry. But please. Stop this movie right now. It just won’t work. You can’t watch this shit without no weed. Just stop.” Listen to the joint. He speaks the truth.
This one may not be a movie, but honestly what's a Netflix queue without any sitcoms? This is for my friends who like a sitcom that they can tune in and out of. Did you stop paying attention for 10 minutes so you could play Candy Crush? No worries, just jump back in and you’ll still enjoy it. Plot is less important than short jokes and funny stoner moments in smoke circles and trying to act sober around parents. Plus, this show has too many relatable munchie moments to count
This movie is fun, heartwarming, and beautiful to look at. No mentions of marijuana in this one, but the shifting art styles, ample colors, and funny writing make this one of the best stoner movies on Netflix. Don’t be intimidated or feel out of the loop if you haven’t seen the other Marvel or Spiderman movies. This movie is great for those stoners who really wanna watch something and feel good about it afterwards.
This one is so good that it is known as “the Netflix weed documentary.” Fab 5 Freddy directs this documentary about the racialized history of marijuana in the United States. This documentary is enlightening, exploring the sad reality of inequality with entertaining interviews from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill and Killer Mike. It connects the history of what we’re smoking to the histories of jazz, hip hop, and systemic racism.
Have you ever watched Iron Chef, Master Chef, or Beat Bobby Flay and thought to yourself, “Man, I wish there was a show like this but for weed food.” Okay, honestly, I have never thought that. But apparently someone did that and here it is: a weed cooking show. In this reality tv show, chefs compete to make the best meals out of cannabis. These contestants will make your budget peanut butter firecrackers look like nothing next to their beautiful (and potent!) meals. I'm gonna go eat my stale brownies in shame now.
While this episode doesn’t focus solely on cannabis, it’s a great dive into relationships with drugs. In this episode of Chelsea Handler’s series, she sits down with Willie Nelson to talk about his marijuana business, has a gourmet high-dosed cannabis meal with her comedian friends, and goes to Peru to try a spiritual hallucinogenic ayahuasca ritual. There's laughs, neuroscientists, and vomit. Really an all over experience that I highly recommend.
As stated when you see G.O.A.T.s beasting in their natural habitat, "The Champ is Here!" It's crazy how he gets better with each special. I was in my mid-twenties when the Chapelle show was poppin', was so sad to see it go. Though it ceased, the outcome was well worth it. He has created 3 specials, all places on Netflix. This last one was performed in Atlanta, GA and cover various topics, including: politics, guns in America, and celebrity scandals. Can't wait to see him live.
If anyone has the honor of making a career as a professional stoner, I think Pete Davidson may be wearing that crown. This SNL cast member has always been vocal about his love of weed and it shines through in this stand up act. In this special, Davidson tells jokes about his breakup being on the front page of Vogue, Louis C.K. throwing him under the bus for smoking weed, mushrooms helping him speak baby, and how much he loves living with his mom.
You probably already know him from his comedy career or his role on another stoner favorite, Broad City on Hulu. In this special, Hannibal Buress gives a solid 67 minutes of laughs from Minneapolis. He talks about how he’s in the long con to get famous just so he doesn’t need to use his ID anymore and getting bugged about not being famous enough while trying to enjoy a meal at Denny’s.
