What’s a better pairing than cannabis and the cinema? So far this year, the silver screen has offered a number of movies worth watching. And even better, the rest of the year’s film prospects look promising. Though these releases can be enjoyed sober, some are made all the more entertaining by the effects of Mary Jane. These are the top  2018 movies to watch while high.

1. Isle of Dogs

Wes Andersen does it again with this delightful stop-motion claymation feature. Released in March, this dystopian film set in Japan features a familiar cast of voices: Bill Murray, Brian Cranston, Frances McDormand, and Jeff Goldblum. The film has received some criticism about cultural appropriation. If you’re high enough, the lovable faces of the animated pooches may make you forget their lifelike forms are being given the human ability to think and speak. Which, like the humans that create them, means they’ll inevitably screw up.

2. Black Panther

This anticipated movie offers intense action scenes where a king defends his African nation of Wakanda and its powerful resource, vibranium. Stocked with talented actors and gorgeous futuristic, tradition-inspired costuming, this movie depiction of a Marvel comic does it right. King T’Challa’s suit will even be on display at the Smithsonian soon. Getting high before this film isn’t key to enjoying it, but it does amplify the experience of seeing the beautiful, technologically-advanced Wakanda. It also may make the emotional fight scenes easier to handle.

3. A Quiet Place

Normally getting high makes one want to crank the tunes. Watching A Quiet Place will have the opposite effect. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt must protect their family in a dystopic future where any sound they make alerts killer monsters. Relying on body language rather than dialogue to tell the story, the lack of conversation and sound submerges the viewer into a different sensory state than a normal high. Not to mention, the intensity of some of the suspenseful scenes will have the audience wanting to scream—but like the characters, feel unable to do so. The suspenseful silence will provide a totally different high.

4. Slenderman

This horror film set to be released in August is based on the notorious Slenderman, a fictional character created in the dark bowels of the internet. So, of course, it had to make the list of movies to watch while high. This character has compelled a few real-life crimes, such as the 2014 stabbing of a 12-year-old girl by her friends in Wisconsin. An HBO documentary covered the case, but this film will provide a fictional narrative featuring the creepy character. Warning: if you’re paranoid and prone to becoming violent for the sake of a fake creature, maybe this isn’t the one to smoke before. After all, the girls from Wisconsin weren’t the only ones to fall under his persuasive spell, only to wreak havoc.

5. Bohemian Rhapsody

Following the wild lifestyle of Freddie Mercury and Queen, this biopic promises to make for a fantastic pairing with some ganja. Light up before going to this in theaters, and there’s a strong risk of singing along to the hits. Perhaps you’ll end up crooning to “Killer Queen”, “We Are the Champions”, and of course, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Maybe, if you’re a big enough fan or if you’ve timed your high just right before watching, you’ll find yourself doing that stomp-stomp-clap move to “We Will Rock You.” Just be aware you may not make friends with theater-goers around you.

6. The Franchises: Solo: A Star Wars Story and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Putting these two films together seems appropriate considering most fans of these franchises have lost some love for these childhood narratives. Never fear. Getting high before watching any of the new Star Wars or Jurassic movies will make you forget that Disney and Universal Studios have sabotaged the fantastical worlds you grew up with. As far as movies to watch while high go, these ones almost require being high. It helps with accepting the very harsh truth that these films will never live up to the films you loved as a kid.

7. Mowgli

Coming out in October, this half-animated picture tells the story of the protagonist of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. With the proper daytime high, this children’s story could be made even more epic. Kick back and watch Mowgli follow and talk to the lovable characters Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther. No matter what, be sure to recognize that if you leave the movie still stoned and animals are talking to you, you may need to find a way to come down.

8. Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

What’s better than cartoons and cannabis? Not much, except maybe watching those same cartoons on a giant theater with movie munchies in your lap. Certainly, any animated film would do the trick. But Teen Titans offers adult humor from the mouths of engaging cartoon characters. Get baked early in the morning and enjoy this flick as a cheap matinee. It’ll be a lot like Saturday morning cartoons, but on a higher level.

9. Mortal Engines

Based on the series written by Philip Reeves, this movie will focus on a future London with a steam-punk aesthetic. Viewing that urban-rural divide through a dystopic lens, this movie is one of the more intellectual movies to watch while high. The film literally has roving cities on wheels consume smaller towns in their paths. Coming out in December, this film promises action, adventure, and thrilling cinematic scenes that will only look more visually appealing after some ganja.

10. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Though part of the Harry Potter franchise, this film makes the list of movies to watch while high because it features a young Dumbledore played by Jude Law. J.K. Rowling herself has stated the wizard reached the ripe age of 150 before his death. So imagining this classic sage character in his youth might have proved difficult without this casting. Enjoy the magic of the wizarding world after toking. Maybe it’ll be easier to imagine Jude Law with a floor-sweeping, graying beard.

11. 306 Hollywood

Following two siblings as they excavate the entirety of their late grandmother’s house, this documentary proclaims itself to be a “magical realist documentary”. Rummaging through their granny’s interesting collections of things will likely remind the viewer of episodes of Hoarders. But the protagonists’ granny’s objects have more whimsy. This film does intriguing work probing the question of what our objects mean and how they matter when we leave them behind after death. Not only will getting high help deal with watching this mourning family, but it will further enhance exploring the myriad of odd objects in a collector’s home.

12. Operation Odessa

Often the Discovery channel or other nature documentaries provide stoned viewers the absorbing reality entertainment they want. But certain movies to watch while high depend on a more human reality. That’s definitely the case when it comes to this documentary that follows three friends who take on the ambitious adventure. These real characters hustle the Russian mob, the Cali cartel, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. This epic gangster movie provides true-crime intensity only made more intense when high on cannabis. Since it’s out on Showtime, it makes for a perfect in-home smoke session and viewing.

13. Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist

Sometimes a good high just demands great visuals. This documentary makes the list of movies to watch while high exactly for that reason. Light up and discover the multitude of outfits worn and made by punk icon and activist Dame Vivienne Westwood. As the ex-partner of Sex Pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren, she defined British fashion for the last 40 years. Truly, she served as a trend-setter, wearing some of the most iconic looks. Maybe with the appropriate amount of marijuana, viewers will feel inspired to don their own rebellious outfits.

14. Suspiria

This modern remake of the 1977 horror film stars Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson. Playing the role of a dancer who relocates to Berlin to attend a prestigious dance academy, Johnson unearths something evil in the academy. Sinister and suspenseful, this movie pairs well with marijuana. Just a little will keep viewers on the edge of their seat as she comes psychologically undone in this new environment. Scheduled for release in November, this movie promises some serious heebee-jeebies.

Movies To Watch While High in 2018

Whether there’s still time to catch one of these in the theaters, or they’re an upcoming release, any of these films makes for a great movie to watch while high. Some, like Ocean’s 8, didn’t make this list, but they feature characters enjoying Mary Jane just the same. Maybe plan to take an edible at the beginning of Slenderman or Suspiria. There’s a always chance the high hits right when the movie starts getting intense. Or enjoy the childlike feeling that comes when enjoying a film like Teen Titans Go! To the Movies or Mowgli. Maybe instead, enjoy a powerful sativa before submerging into action-packed movies like Black Panther and Mortal Engines. No matter your viewing pleasure, cannabis and the silver screen go as perfectly together as popcorn and the movies.

1. What is CBD? What is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.

CBD oil is a cannabis oil (whether derived from marijuana or industrial hemp, as the word cannabis is the latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Our CBD products and extracts are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” since they typically contain much more than just CBD. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana, but is the genus name, and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD and hemp extracts is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.

2. If a hemp extract is 40% cannabinoids, what’s the other 60%? What’s in your hemp extracts besides the naturally occurring cannabinoids?

Our Kentucky hemp extracts contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, etc.. In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our agricultural hemp extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phyto-chemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.

3. What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different genetic profile though. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. organic hemp seedsTypically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, newer industrial hemp varieties in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and higher yields of cannabinoids and terpenes, such as our Kentucky hemp we’re now using!

99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances, and only a trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil, since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis.

In the USA the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP — The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

4. Are hemp derived cannabinoids such as CBD as good as CBD from marijuana?

The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. Most marijuana has a very low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile (like CBD, CBC, CBG), so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable for anything besides THC. Marijuana is usually very high in THC (gives people the high) but usually very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

Nowadays in the USA, many farmers are growing industrial hemp flowers that are just as beautiful, odor-producing, and terpene rich as the best marijuana strains, such as our partnered farmers in Kentucky.

5. Why don’t you source your Hemp and CBD from within Colorado?

colorado growing operationWe feel that the hemp program in Kentucky is more well suited for our company in regards to growing hemp, and that because it’s 100% compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill (and the 2016 Agricultural Appropriations Act), procuring it from there is perfectly legal at the federal level. Kentucky’s ecology is perfect for hemp just as it is for tobacco. The growing season is longer than in Colorado, and the soil is richer, so the quality of the hemp and the yields are better.

6. What’s the percentage of cannabinoids and CBD in your product?

Our raw extracts have varying percentages of cannabinoid and cannabidiol (CBD) content, the range being 10%-99%. Each product has a unique formulation and uses varying ratios of our extract types. Our CBD Isolate is over 99% pure CBD.

7. What is the best method of use?

For our dietary supplements we can only recommend them for internal consumption. Our CBD isolate is for research purposes only. If you don’t like the flavor of the oil supplements, you can mix with something sweet like apple sauce or honey to cut through the flavor.

8. What’s the ideal serving size for me, and how often should I take it?

There is no easy answer to this. Our starting recommended serving size is 15 drops but we generally recommend experimenting to see what feels best to you. Some prefer 5 drops, some prefer over 50 drops per day.

9. What is the safety of your hemp extracts? Are there negative side effects?

Hemp is considered by many to be generally safe. We’ve never seen or heard of any significant or negative CBD Oil Extractside effects in our years in the industry. That said, we can’t rule them out. Please consult with your physician before using any dietary supplement including Hemp extract supplements.

10. Which of your CBD and hemp products should I get?

As a company who sells various dietary and food supplements, we can’t suggest any of our products for the prevention, treatment or cure of any disease or ailment.

When considering our different dietary hemp products, know that they all come in two strengths. Our Original Hemp blends (Classic Hemp Blend, Hemp Complete, Brainpower oil, & Signature Blend) all have 250+mg of cannabinoids per fluid ounce, and our concentrated blends have 1,500+mg per fluid ounce, six times the potency of our traditional oils. We’ve found that sometimes less is more, but nevertheless, some people like to take very large serving sizes of our hemp extracts.

The main difference between the four Original Blends is the additional herbal ingredients besides hemp. We suggest you research the separate components of each blend to determine which product may be most appealing to add to your dietary regimen. If you know it’s solely the hemp extract that you are looking for, with no additional ingredients, then Classic Hemp Blend or Classic Hemp 6x is what you’re looking for.

For dabbing and vaporizing or for research you can try our CBD Isolate.


11. Why do people use Hemp Extracts and CBD? What are the benefits and uses of CBD?

In accordance with federal regulations we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplement products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.

12. Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a high-CBD hemp extract?

Hemp Oil For Dogs

Hemp Oil For Dogs

Absolutely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our CO2 hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a supercritical CO2 extraction of the hemp plant itself, not the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be a great nutritive food, but it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts do have.

13. Do I need to move to Colorado to get your Hemp Extracts and CBD? Where do you ship?

No. We actually source our hemp from Kentucky, as it’s legal to ship across state lines. Many people are under the impression that the only way to acquire hemp extracts and CBD for themselves or a loved one is to move to Colorado or another cannabis-friendly state. Many major news outlets are misinformed and are unfortunately spreading the idea that you can only get CBD oil in the states where medical marijuana has been legalized. This is simply not the case though. Because our extracts comes from hemp instead of marijuana, we can and do ship to all fifty states, and no medical marijuana card is needed. There are some exceptions, like with Indiana, Missouri and South Dakota we can’t sell our concentrated products due to state legislation.

We also ship to Japan, Australia, the EU, Switzerland, and Brazil. For all EU orders contact our exclusive distributor thereCannawell.

14. Is your Hemp Extract Oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?

Not quite. Ours are from hemp and RSHO is usually using marijuana, a different form of cannabis than industrial hemp. Our industrial hemp extracts are more standardized and will usually have a much higher content of non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through his method will usually have a much higher THC content, as it’s typically marijuana that is used for RSHO.†

Generally speaking, most marijuana producers and sellers (especially on the black market) don’t test for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC, CBD and other cannabinoid content of the final oil is always varying greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays.

15. Where do you source your hemp and CBD from?

We have partners in Kentucky who grew a dedicated plot for us this year (2016) which is being used in our products now. mjna message boardWe also currently source from Europe but we’ll be changing that soon.

16. What kind of testing/analysis is performed on your products?

We have an industry leading quality control system, and we have third party laboratories analyze all of our hemp extracts and our final products for cannabinoid potency, heavy metals, bacterial and microbial life, mycotoxins (fungus), and pesticides.

17. What is CO2 extraction? What’s the difference between subcritical and supercritical CO2 extractions?

CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract phyto-chemicals (such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method, and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method in the world.

Many hemp and CBD companies boast about their supercritical CO2 extractions, but that’s actually only one (and perhaps an inferior) method of using a CO2 extraction machine. There are also subcritical CO2 extractions, and ‘mid-critical’, a general range between subcritical and supercritical. Subcritical (low temp, low pressure) CO2 extractions take more time and produce smaller yields than super-critical, but they retain the essential oils, terpenes, and other sensitive chemicals within the plant. Supercritical, on the other hand, is a high pressure and high temperature process that damages most terpenes and heat sensitive chemicals, but can extract much larger molecules such as lipids (omega 3 and 6), chlorophyll, and waxes. A truly full-spectrum CO2 extract includes first performing a subcritical extraction, separating the extracted oil, and then extracting the same plant material using supercritical pressure, and then homogenizing both oil extracts into one. In the essential oil industry, an extract made using this specific process is referred to as a CO2 Total.

18. What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

“The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia

There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “peace”).

For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
