“Netflix and Chill” might be code for you-know-what, but if you wanted to take it literally, Netflix is partnering with the perfect company to help make it happen.
The streaming service has developed its own strains of cannabis that are themed to match up with some of their original programming.
If you have even a tertiary understanding of marijuana laws in the United States, you know this isn’t something anyone will be able to order over the internet or mail. If you want in on the green, you’ll have to show up at Alternative Herbal Health Services in West Hollywood between August 25 through August 27.
Dubbed The Netflix Collection, “each strain was cultivated with the specific shows in mind, designed to complement each title based on their tone. For example, sillier shows may be more indica dominant, while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate.”
The specific reason for the pop-up event is to promote Netflix’s new Chuck Lorre sitcom Disjointed, which stars Kathy Bates as the owner of a marijuana dispensary. One can only wonder how many lame weed jokes are en route from the mind behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory. We’ll find out soon enough as the show premiered today.
As for the other show-specific strains, they are:
- Camp Firewood, inspired by Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (“a very chill indica”)
- Prickly Muffin, inspired by Bojack Horseman (“When you smoke this, it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day.”)
- Vodkush, inspired by Chelsea (for the “advanced botanist”)
- Peyotea 73, inspired by Grace And Frankie (an “uplifting sativa hybrid”)
- Sassafrass OG, inspired by Lady Dynamite (“the power of one thousand pug snorts”)
- Baka Bile, inspired by Santa Clarita Diet (to “really ramp up your appetite”)
- Poussey Riot, inspired by Orange Is The New Black (“for kicking it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes”)
- Moon 13, inspired by Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return (not too strong, so you can “keep your sanity, no robot friends required”)
- And finally Banana Stand Kush, inspired by Arrested Development (recommended for a “big yellow joint”)
Alas, there’s no strain for Stranger Things, which seems like exactly the kind of show that could use it. Then again, we understand why they probably want to stay away from promoting weed alongside a show starring a bunch of kids, even if it also has some really weird stuff going on.
