If there’s one true pairing better than wine and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, then it’s Netflix and weed. And because the universe is a place that occasionally blesses us with rare moments of kindness, this perfect pairing just got better. It’s official: Netflix weed strains based on your favorite original content from the streaming service is now here. #Blessed, are we not?
Netflix Weed Strains for Your Favorite Netflix Shows
The launch of these Netflix weed strains is essentially a marketing ploy to hype up the service’s latest entry, a cannabis-centric comedy titled Disjointed, which dropped early Friday morning. Created by Two-and-a-Half Men producer Chuck Lorre, Disjointed stars veteran Kathy Bates as a pot activist who runs a cannabis dispensary in L.A., along with a supporting slew of “budtenders,” one of whom is her son.
While the show hasn’t received much acclaim from critics, its PR campaign is definitely on-brand. Named “the Netflix Collection,” each of the strains is based on and matched with an original Netflix series (and before you even ask, Iron Fist is not included in the lineup). Disjointed is the only show with three strains attached to its name: the Omega Strain, Eve’s Bush, and Rutherford B. Haze.
As for the other pairings, each product is designed with fans in mind, touting insider jokes and winks towards famous quotes even a casual fan will recognize. For example? Arrested Development’s Banana Stand Kush is recommended for “a big yellow joint.” (And if you didn’t immediately yell “THERE’S MONEY IN THE BANANA STAND” after reading that, what kind of monster are you?)
Here are the other shows with their matching strains, listed in parentheses, that are launching this weekend:
- Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (Camp Firewood)
- Bojack Horseman (Prickly Muffin)
- Arrested Development (Banana Stand Kush)
- Chelsea (Vodkush)
- Grace And Frankie (Peyotea 73)
- Lady Dynamite (Sassafrass OG)
- Santa Clarita Diet (Baka Bile)
- Orange Is The New Black (Poussey Riot)
- Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (Moon 13)
However, tailoring each strain to fit a show goes further than that. According to The A.V. Club, “sillier shows may be more indica dominant, while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate.” Now that’s some fan service.
Final Hit: Netflix Weed Strains Based On Your Favorite Shows Are Here…For Now
Because life is unfair, there’s one small catch to this amazing cannabis line launch: it’s for one weekend only. Starting today, Angelenos can head over to a pop-up event hosted by Alternative Herbal Health Services. Assuming that these Netflix weed strains won’t immediately sell out, the pop-up is slated to end on Sunday, August 27. So hurry up and grab your favorite Netflix weed strains before they disappear.
