Netflix sold its own weed strains to make binging terrible shows more enjoyable
If you love pot, you've probably tried watching Netflix's new series about a California weed dispensary named "Disjointed" — and quickly exited out of it after the fifth misplaced laugh track.
To further wrangle in hip young consumers with it, however, Netflix dropped 10 weed strains to coincide with the show's release last week, each crafted to be smoked while binge watching a particular series.
"Sillier shows may be more indica dominant," the press release states, "while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate.”
Take “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later,” for instance. The team suggests blowing your mind out to the Camp Firewood strain, “a very chill indica.”
Or maybe you like “Bojack Horseman”? For that the company suggests Prickly Muffin: “When you smoke this, it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day.”
“Arrested Development” inspired Banana Stand Kush, which is recommended for a “big yellow joint” — and “Chelsea” is woooonderful with Vodkush, for the “advanced botanist.”
Not one to get popped by the long arm of the law — why take risks when you're worth over $70 billion like Netflix is? — the streaming giant made the exact point in press materials that it’s not taking any money from the sales of the products, that they're for promotional purposes only. Sneaky.
You wanted legal weed, you got it. Welcome to the new normal.
