This film has abled to offer a hilarious and at the same time, a horrifying glimpse into psychedelia and trust me, it can even make a sober person feel stoned.

This is a story about two friends who take a bit of something-something and then embark on a journey which is filled with things that you can just never expect to really even happen.

3. Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Another Keanu Reeves movie is here on the list, however, this one is from the time when movies like The Matrix were not in his lap. This is another buddy stoner film, which makes me wonder if the funda of a successful stoner movie is by making it a buddy movie too? Maybe, it’s. This one just takes the entire concept too far, as he and his buddy go traveling through time, the blankness all over his face made people marvel at his subtle acting.

2. Dazed and Confused

The Big Lebowski is said to be THE best movies to watch when you’re high, and one look at it and you’ll understand all the reasons behind it. This is a story about ‘The Dude’ and his journey as he battles through a case of mistaken identity. There is not a stoner in the world who does aspire to live more like The Dude, the role that will never escape Jeff Bridges. He’s super chill, a loyal friend, he is committed to fighting for his principles, and he knows a good rug when he sees one.

So, which one is your favourite?
