Just when you thought Netflix and chill couldn’t get any better, Netflix has taken your hibernation station nek level with its custom weed strains.
Last weekend at the Alternative Herbal Health Services event in West Hollywood, the ‘Netflix Collection’ of marijuana made its debut. Sadly, Netflix’s quality kush won’t be for sale online. To purchase this iconic weed collection, a medical marijuana card is needed. The best bit? Netflix won’t even be profiting from their supply.
“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,” said the press release published by the online streaming service.
Netflix has also paired their weed with some pretty amusing names. Fittingly, the Orange is the New Black strain is sold in a orange jar, named “Poussey Riot” after its beloved character. The strain is intended for “kicking it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes.”
While as the Arrested Development strain ‘Banana Stand Kush,’ is perfect for rolling in a “big yellow joint.” Other specialty strains are inspired by Bojack Horseman, Lady Dynamite, Grace and Frankie and Santa Clarita Diet, which seeks to “really ramp up your appetite.”
Netflix’s latest business venture also conveniently comes at the same time as their latest original show release, Disjointed (pun very much intended). Starring Kathy Bates, the show follows the protagonist as an owner of a medical marijuana dispensary. Serving as inspiration for the pop-up event Netflix’s weed was sold at, the company have released three strains especially based on the show.
Although their marijuana is currently only available in the US, who knows how successful this could be for Netflix across the world in other countries where marijuana is legal.
