Listening to epically good music while high on really great cannabis can be a transcendental experience. You find deeper meaning in the lyrics and develop a new appreciation for everything from chords to composition. Some music is especially well suited to enjoying with cannabis. It’s probably safe to say the majority of rock composed in the 1970s was done so under great clouds of pot smoke. These classic rock albums have been enjoyed by stoned people for nearly 50 years! If you haven’t heard them all, get them on your playlist! If it’s been awhile, spark up a doobie, brother and time travel to one of the greatest periods of music history!
The Wall, Pink Floyd: This album and the accompanying movie were one of the cornerstones of 1970s drug culture. It was insisted that you be on some kind of substance in order to enjoy it, be that LSD or THC. Whether you enjoy the album alone or as part of the rock opera, The Wall is captivating from start to finish.
Hotel California, The Eagles: Best known for its title track, Hotel California was a massive hit for The Eagles. The album explores themes and concepts that relate to California (and the perception of California), celebrity and excess. It produced several top chart hits in addition to Hotel California.
Led Zeppelin IV: Perhaps the most widely known album from rock legends Led Zeppelin, this untitled album is a stoner staple. Classic tracks like “Black Dog” and “Stairway to Heaven” have made this one of the best-selling albums of all time. Pair it with some of today’s potent cannabis and enjoy some great rock storytelling.
Toys in the Attic, Aerosmith: A powerful and moving album, Toys in the Attic produced some of Aerosmith’s best known hit and remains their most commercially successful album. Sweet Emotion and Walk This Way, as well as the title track, make this an engaging album to really enjoy while high.
Paranoid, Black Sabbath: Listen to this album and remember how amazing Black Sabbath truly was. One of the most influential albums of the era, Paranoid contains classics like Iron Man and War Pigs. This is the perfect album for today’s political climate. Smoke a bowl and enjoy some heavy metal’s best guitar riffs of all time.
