Cannabis is a hot topic in popular culture, one that extends to the television and movie industry. It’s been a long time since Weeds went off the air, but a whole host of new shows have taken its place. From cooking competitions to sit-coms, it seems producers can’t churn out the shows fast enough. Wondering which ones to watch? Here are five of the top shows to check out!
If you love documentaries, this is the cannabis show for you. Host Krishna Andavolu explores several themes in this well-produced show, including lifestyle, science, business and politics. Episodes have included topics like parents and pot, cannabis and Christianity and usage in major league football.
A show for cannabis-loving foodies, Abdullah Saeed hosts dinner parties with notable chefs preparing cannabis-infused food with an emphasis on international cuisine. If you’re looking for meal ideas, infused or not, give this show a chance.
Based on a popular comedic web series, this new offering from HBO follows the exploits of a cannabis deliveryman and his eccentric Brooklyn clients.
Although not specifically focused on cannabis, Broad City features two weed-loving women in their 20s and their friends in New York City. Cannabis is featured throughout the show and takes center stage in several episodes. If you love sharp, quirky comedy, don’t miss this show!
Not all shows about cannabis are great. You can go ahead and skip Netflix’s poorly reviewed and recently canceled Disjointed. Even with the incredible actor Kathy Bates in the lead role, the show was savaged by critics who found the pothead stereotypes tired, the plots outlandish and jokes predictable.
