3 min

Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned movie night? We at Zamnesia are here to make this time-tested stoner tradition even better by recommending a strain to go along with each of the major film genres. So cuddle up with a bong and a buddy and get ready to be immersed into another world.

Having a chill night every now and again is so necessary, especially when you're always on your toes. When it finally comes time to sit down and relax for the evening, there's nothing better to do than turn on a good movie, kick up your feet, and smoke a ton of bud.

Such an event calls for some serious decision making, though. Not only do you have to choose the right film, but also the perfect strain to go along with it. To lend a helping hand, we here at Zamnesia have compiled a list of the best weed strains to smoke per movie genre. That way, you can spend less time deciding and more time blazing.


Comedy - Kosher Kush

Comedy films revolve around laughter, lightheartedness, and amusement. With that said, if you want to laugh your ass off for hours upon hours, even at the lamest of comedies, then there's no better option than Kosher Kush. Kosher Kush by Reserva Privada is an award-winning indica hybrid that packs a mean punch.

In fact, she can contain as much as 22% THC. Her couch-locking abilities and her bursting sensations of euphoria are what makes her the ideal strain for this particular genre. By the time the comedy is over, you'll be balled up in the fetal position from laughing so hard.


Musical - Jamaican Pearl

Musicals are all about singing, dancing, and music in general. And for the most part, they are upbeat. When you're feeling in the mood for a musical, be sure to get lifted with the help of Jamaican Pearl. Jamaican Pearl by Sensi Seeds is a sativa-dominant hybrid that's loaded with potency and positive vibes, not to mention uplifting and cerebral effects.

Between her tropical aroma and her unique combo of sweet and sour flavors, she'll have you jamming in no time. All music is good music when you're smoking on Jamaican Pearl.


Drama - Blue Cheese

For the most part, this particular genre, which happens to be the largest of them all, focusses on crucial situations using realistic settings and characters. Throughout these movies, you get to see the characters develop and interact with one another quite frequently. If you decide on such a film, then you undoubtedly need a strain that'll relax you.

Look no further than Blue Cheese by Royal Queen Seeds, an indica that was created by crossing the well-known strain Cheese and the not-as-popular Blueberry. Not only does this mighty hybrid feature the same delicious flavors of her parents, but she also produces a delightful aroma that's both earthy and fruity. Blue Cheese will undoubtedly chill you out and push you back from the edge of your seat when your favorite drama starts getting too intense.


Horror - Ogre

Editor's Note: Unfortunately, we no longer carry Orge by Joint Doctor. We can, however, recommend Durban Poison for similar traits in terms of flavour and effects.

The goal of horror films is to, of course, terrorise you with a bunch of scary shit. But that's what makes them so exciting. You never know when someone or something is going to jump out at you. While watching a horror movie, you need a strain to calm you down.

Not to mention something to get rid of the paranoia and help you get some shut-eye once it's over. Ogre by the Joint Doctor is ideal for all of the above. In addition to relieving stress and anxiety, this indica-dominant hybrid will knock you out and throw you into a deep stoney sleep at the end of a exciting night.


Action - Green Crack

From beginning to end, action movies have a lot to offer. Some involve wild stunts and heroic rescues, while others feature unimaginable crises and never ending motion. If you're seeking an action-packed experience, then Green Crack by FastBuds is your best bet. This balanced hybrid will have you so pumped up and full of energy that you'll be ready for anything and everything.

During intense and exciting moments, Green Crack will have your eyes glued to the television, making you unable to focus on anything but what's right in front of you. Also, her crazy sweet taste and tangy, fruity aroma will pull your inner superhero directly out of you. After a couple of hits of Green Crack, you'll be ready to take over the world.


Adventure - Hawaii Maui Waui

Adventure films can easily be compared to action movies in that they are exciting and fun. For the most part, they involve exotic locations and out-of-the-ordinary stories and experiences. In case you're up for a little adventure yourself, spark up Hawaii Maui Waui by Nirvana. This sativa-dominant strain, with its island-inspired taste and tropical appearance is both inspiring and refreshing. Also, she holds just the right amount of potency.

Hawaii Maui Waui is all the treasure you need. But if ever you were to embark on a search for precious riches, she would keep you motivated and help you stay active without making you feel too stoned. Oh, and she'll eliminate any stress that comes along the way, ensuring you maintain a positive attitude throughout your journey.


Science Fiction - Alien OG

Sci-Fi films are not only imaginative, but also quasi-scientific, and often, bizarre. From aliens to strange villains, you never quite know what to expect. A Sci-Fi movie will keep those wheels turning, that's for sure. With that said, you need a strain that will further encourage you to think outside of the box while watching such a film. Alien OG by Cali Connection is perfect for doing just that.

With a THC content of up to 28%, she will have your mind soaring all over the place. And when you're overwhelmed from your mental vacation, Alien OG will relieve headaches, stress, and pain while providing upliftment. And a hefty dose of happiness to boot.


Historical - Malawi

The great thing about history is that there is no erasing it. So when you watch a historical film, most everything you see is a blast from the past. From war films to medieval romps, these movies are for folks who aren't afraid to face the facts, and want to learn a thing or two as well. If you choose this genre, then it only makes sense to smoke on a strain that's remained untouched over the course of history.

That would have to be Malawi by ACE Seeds, a pure sativa landrace strain that's highly powerful. Since she's known to produce a wild, psychedelic high lasting up to four hours, Malawi is better off being packed into a bowl belonging to a true cannabis connoisseur. Brave rookies should puff with caution.
