If Christmas trees aren’t the only plant on your mind right now, you’re not alone. The holiday season is one of the busiest times of year for cannabis businesses, as more and more studies are showing THC can reduce anxiety, depression, stress, and other issues that may come up with all the shopping, cooking, and long stretches of family time that come with this season.
To take a break from all the madness, you may, like many, find yourself curled up on the couch, popping an edible.
Don’t move—we’ve got you covered.
Holiday movies are a perfect companion to a yuletide buzz. We compiled some popular stoner flicks that will get you in the mood to celebrate the season your favorite way.
The Night Before (2015)
Isaac, Chris, and Ethan have been celebrating Christmas Eve together for the past ten years. As their mid-thirties approach, they decide to kick off a new chapter of adulthood with one last festive night out in NYC.
It’s safe to say that Seth Rogen and stoner flicks go together like milk and cookies, and The Night Before is no exception. This shenanigan-filled tale is relatable yet wacky, taking you on a whimsical ride.
Paying tribute to Christmas classics like “Home Alone” and “A Christmas Carol,” this is a holiday go-to if you’re looking for the quintessential canna-comedy.
Arguably one of his best performances to date, Will Farrell stars as Buddy the Elf in this feel-good holiday classic.
After mistakenly getting sent to the north pole as a baby, Buddy is raised among the elves. Now, well into adulthood, he realizes that something is amiss and heads to New York City to look for his father.
Though there’s no reference to cannabis in the movie, the hilarious and heartwarming insanity that ensues makes Elf one of the best movies to watch high.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
The “Dude” is as cool as Christmas itself in this cult-classic stoner film. Played by Jeff Bridges, Lebowski perfectly captures the essence of what it means to be a stoner.
The Dude’s laid-back attitude painted against a backdrop of misadventures makes “The Big Lebowski” one of the best stoner movies and a joyride from start to finish.
No matter how bad things get, the dude “abides” with a joint and White Russian in hand. And what more fitting way to ring in the 2021 holiday season than to watch someone else venturing around town in their bathrobe and slippers all day?
