This Christmas time, along with the mistletoe and eggnog, get ready to indulge in some weed-friendly movies! From cult classics to award winners, this list has it all. So grab your favourite THC movie snacks and settle down for some quality stoner entertainment. These are the top six stoner movies to watch this holiday season.
1. The Nightmare Before Christmas
In a world where Halloween and Christmas collide, Jack Skellington – the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town – discovers Christmas Town but worries that it’s too scary for anyone to appreciate. To bring Christmas to his town and show that he is not just a fright-master, he decides to kidnap Santa Claus and take over Christmas.
This 1993 classic is great to watch while high not only for the nostalgia factor but the stop motion animation is simply spectacular. It really is Tim Burton at his best. This film is sweet, funny and his imagination is overwhelming. Dreamy (and sometimes creepy) visuals paired with all-star voice actors make this movie great to get you into the holiday spirit.
The Perfect Pairing: We recommend watching this movie after smoking a joint of some AAAA Indica, so you can feel the dreamy effects of this animated classic. Our Astro Pink sounds perfect for the occasion!
2. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
The world’s favourite stoner duo is back for another holiday adventure. After six years of being estranged and making friends with new people, Harold and Kumar are joined again after a mysterious Christmas package mishandling. Of course, the two stoners get in a whole lot of trouble along the way!
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is a must-be-seen for fans of this series. In true Harold and Kumar style, they will have you laughing from start to finish with their antics while also touching your heart with loveable characters. The movie shows how far these stoners have come from the first movie to now and how much they still care for each other.
The Perfect Pairing: We recommend smoking a joint of our energizing Sativa: Bruce Banner to get you into the holiday spirit and enhance your experience with this underrated comedy gem.
3. Home Alone
No Christmas movie list would be complete without a Home Alone movie. In this 1990 classic, Kevin McCallister is accidentally left behind when his family leaves for their Christmas vacation in Paris. After being tormented by a bully the next day and messing up the house with traps to stop him, Kevin locks himself in his room and prepares for another night of torture.
The next morning, Kevin wakes up to an old man in a Santa Claus costume at the foot of his bed, who he believes is his father. But it turns out that the “old man” was just one of Kevin’s traps, and now he has to face off against Sticky Bandits.
The Perfect Pairing: This must-watch holiday classic deserves a good hot chocolate and a nice hybrid. We recommend our Diamond OG, which is perfect for a wake-and-bake in your pyjamas to feel like a kid again!
Arguably one of Will Ferell’s best performances, Elf is another classic that deserves to be watched at least once or twice.
Buddy, an orphan, raised by Santa’s elves at the North Pole, leaves his home to find his father in New York City. There, he tries to spread Christmas cheer, but his constant childlike behaviour fails miserably. Eventually, Buddy is forced to face the truth that he is an elf. Will Ferrell’s comedic timing in this film is perfect, highlighting how versatile an actor he truly is. It has good messages for everyone about believing in yourself, even if the odds are stacked against you.
Scenes like Buddy going berserk inside a toy store, pretending to be an elf at the North Pole, and his imagination running wild are sure to make a well-baked stoner laugh.
The Perfect Pairing: We recommend being stoned all movie to appreciate the comedic value and originality. If you don’t smoke in your home, consider one of our marijuana vapes, so you can enjoy this funny movie without getting smoke everywhere.
5. The Matrix
Ok, so this one isn’t a traditional Christmas movie, but the long-awaited fourth installment of the franchise is coming this December 22nd. The Matrix is the perfect holiday movie to watch with cannabis. Intertwined within fascinating mythology, high-quality special effects and great fight scenes throughout, you can’t go wrong if you’re looking for a new Christmas movie to watch while being stoned.
Keanu Reeves is back as Neo, the movie’s central character, as he is now living a “normal” life.” That is until he starts experiencing strange memories and finds himself back inside the famed Matrix. The movie is sure to be trippy, psychedelic and mind-blowing, well worth a cannabis-fueled viewing.
If you haven’t seen the first three, you still have time! Roll up some good, and get to it!
The Perfect Pairing: While You can certainly enjoy the Matrix on cannabis, we actually recommend watching these cult films on Psilocybin Mushrooms. One or two grams should be more than enough to bend your mind and make you question the very fabric of reality for a few hours!
6. Die Hard
The Die Hard Christmas movie debate has been going on for a while now. Is John McClane(young Bruce Willis) kicking terrorist ass really spreading the joy of the holidays? Is his catchphrase “Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker” the most appropriate line to utter at a Christmas dinner?
It doesn’t matter. This movie is a classic and has earned its spot on America’s favourite Christmas movies list. John McClane is an off-duty New York City cop visiting his estranged wife and two children for Christmas. When twelve pitiless terrorists led by Hans Gruber seize control of the Nakatomi Plaza, a massive high-rise building in Los Angeles, McClane teams up with a man named Ellis and others to storm the tower and take back their freedom…with extreme prejudice.
This action classic is full of gunfire, explosions and John McClane being witty. The last part is especially important if you’re smoking while enjoying the movie.
The Perfect Pairing: The action-packed extravaganza deserves something with an electrifying THC content. Why not try our selection of cannabis concentrates. They come in various tastes and strengths, so you’ll find something that fits your style.
