Marijuana has a rich history in film as a distraction that derails the action, a main plot point, or the only thing that gets protagonists out of bed in the morning… to get a bag of Doritos, then get back into bed.
Filmmakers have gotten creative over the years, coming up with their own imaginative strains of Mary Jane that are either the best, worst or most bizarre thing ever. Here are five of our favorites, based only on their portrayal because there’s no way for us to have actually tried them, man.
1. Pineapple Express from Pineapple Express
We’re starting with the obvious, which is rumored to be “like God’s vagina.” It certainly has an impressive family tree, and is actually very scientific…but we won’t go into it right now.
2. Strawberry Cough from Children of Men
We would ingest just about anything handed to us by a high, long-haired Michael Caine, so the fact that this strain makes your cough taste like strawberries is an unnecessary but welcomed bonus.
3. Alabama Kush from Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
Sure, former U.S. President George W. Bush gets high, but that doesn’t make him a hypocriticizer. And Alabama Kush is only the finest, after all.
4. Maui Wowie from Half Baked
Upon entering a room full of Maui Wowie, Dave Chappelle nearly achieves orgasm and starts speaking Spanish. Tropical or not, that’s strong, brah.
5. Brown Bomber from Grandma’s Boy
Actually, we’re going to pass on Brown Bomber: we prefer our underwear clean. Don’t let us stop you, though.
