Netflix Weed

Netflix is mixing business with pleasure by releasing their own line of show-inspired marijuana strains. To help promote its new pot-themed show Disjointed, Netflix has joined forces with a California dispensary to release a series of marijuana strains named after some of its most beloved series.

According to a press release obtained by Variety, the streaming giant teamed up with a West Hollywood, Calif., dispensary to brand weed after some of their more popular series'. For example, sillier shows may be more indicia dominant, while dramas will be more Sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate.

Disjointed

The Omega Strain, Eve's Bush, and Rutherford B. Haze are each named for "Disjointed" - the stoner comedy with which Netflix aligned the release of their marijuana variations. While others were named after the likes of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (Camp Firewood), Bojack Horseman (Prickly Muffin), Arrested Development (Banana Stand Kush), and Chelsea (Vodkush).

Additionally, strains were named in connection to Grace and Frankie (Peyote 73), Lady Dynamite (Sassafrass OG), Santa Clarita Diet (Baka Bile), Orange is the New Black (Poussey Riot), and Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (Moon 13). 

The streaming service is keen to point out that they took no profit from the sale of the weed strains, but intended them merely as promotional items. The pop-up dispensary ended up selling over a hundred jars of the special marijuana, or roughly a pound of weed, Adweek reports

Disjointed is available on Netflix now.
