Comedy and cannabis were made for each other. The laughter and euphoria they provide has a tremendous impact on our brain chemistry, improving our mood, erasing stress and lifting depression. A positive outlook can even impact your rate of healing and recovery. As the old adage says, “laughter is the best medicine.”
Comedy movies are a great way to destress after a hard day or recover from a bad mood. These classic comedies are classic in terms of release date but also because they can be watched again and again with no loss of entertainment. Here are five no-risk comedies that pair perfectly with cannabis that you can enjoy with friends or alone!
- Ghostbusters (1984): No 80’s comedy movie list would be complete without the original, groundbreaking Ghostbusters. Perfectly cast and infinitely quotable, this comedy classic will induce laughter even after repeated viewings. If you haven’t seen the original Ghostbusters or it’s been a while, dust it off and see why this film took America by storm in the 80’s!
- Better Off Dead (1985): If you’re a fan of absurdist comedy and teen romance, Better Off Dead cannot be missed! With John Cusack in the lead, this strangely hilarious comedy is laughs from beginning to end. You’ll be quoting it for weeks to come.
- Vacation (1983): The original Vacation movie withstands the test of time and still delivers the comedy. Road trips and family vacations are a part of many people’s childhoods. You’ll definitely be able to relate to the trials and tribulations faced by Chevy Chase and his fabulous co-stars! This movie will leave you laughing and feeling a bit nostalgic for those family vacations.
- A Fish Called Wanda (1988): For fans of British humor and heist movies, A Fish Called Wanda was an instant classic. The all-star cast creates one of the funniest crime movies of a generation. Witty, smart dialogue is what makes this movie stand out!
- Ruthless People (1986): A black comedy about murder and kidnapping, this classic movie stars 80’s powerhouse comedy duo Bette Midler and Danny DeVito. It perfectly captures the culture of the 1980s, both a bit silly and tasteless, but it’s a fun flashback!
