Wondering what to watch high this 4/20? Weedmaps News has got you covered. In this modern age of content overload, there's never a shortage of quality media to please your weed-enhanced senses, but sometimes it's hard to make a selection without getting lost in an endless scroll through all your overstuffed streaming queues.

Whether you're looking for some stoney shows and movies to watch high in April, or a hefty watchlist for your celebratory 4/20 couch lock, here are some lit picks available on major streaming platforms in April 2019.

'Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series' — Netflix

What is it?

If you saw the “Trailer Park Boys” series finale, you know it ended with Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, and the gang tripping on shrooms and turning into cartoons. This wasn't just a goof. “Trailer Park Boys” is coming back as an animated series.

Why watch high?

Do we really need to make a case for this one? A cartoon version of a classic stoner series speaks for itself.

Where and when to watch

“Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series” premiered on Netflix on March 31, 2019, — providing a pitch-perfect transition out of March and into the 4/20 season.

'Up in Smoke' — Amazon Prime and Hulu

What is it?

You know what it is: Cheech & Chong's 1978 landmark stoner comedy is the movie that both secured and expanded the cannabis corner of the pop culture map.

Why watch high?

“Up in Smoke” spawned a long line of movies that reveal hidden jokes and gemlike moments when you watched them with your “stoned goggles” on (“Dazed and Confused,” “The Big Lebowski,” the “Harold and Kumar” franchise, and most recently, “Inherent Vice,” to name a few). What better time than the month of 4/20 to revisit this mammoth (and still hilarious) progenitor of stoner media as we know it?

Where and when to watch

“Up in Smoke” will be available to stream on both Hulu and Amazon Prime on April 1, 2019.

'Pineapple Express' — Netflix

What is it?

The 2009 stoner/action-buddy comedy hybrid starring Seth Rogen and James Franco as a bumbling pair of stoners on the run.

Why watch high?

Every generation has their its comedy (or comedies, depending on how lit your particular generation was in their prime). “Pineapple Express” is the stoner comedy of the mid-to-late 2000s comedy scene ruled by Judd Apatow and crew. Eleven years later, some aspects of “Pineapple Express” may feel a little dated, but it remains a product of top-tier comedy talent at the height of their powers, and it's sure to provide some low-stakes, 420-friendly laughs.

Where and when to watch

“Pineapple Express” will be streaming on Netflix starting April 1, 2019.

'Into the Dark: I'm Just Fucking With You' — Hulu

What is it?

The latest entry in Hulu's monthly anthology series is produced by modern low-budget horror juggernaut Blumhouse Productions. Each feature-length episode is themed around a holiday from the month of its release. April's episode, aptly titled “I'm Just Fucking With You,” is centered around April Fool's Day.

Why watch high?

“I'm Just Fucking With You” 's premise, which subjects two siblings to a harrowing series of over-the-top practical jokes for one night in a strange motel, is the stuff paranoid weed fantasies are made of. If you're interested in subjecting your high senses to that sort of thing, this gorgeously neon-soaked terror ride may be prime entertainment for your 4/20 watchlist.

Where and when to watch

“Into the Dark: I'm Just Fucking With You” will hit Hulu April Fool's Day, 2019.

'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Part 2 — Netflix

What is it?

The second season of Netflix's smart, sexy, dark, poppy, and surprisingly metal take on the Archie comics series of the same name.

Why watch high?

“Sabrina” 's debut season was one of our favorite high binges of 2018, offering a gorgeously dank, spooky-stoney visual palette to go with all the teen drama and supernatural happenings. From the looks of the latest trailer, Season 2 will be cranking everything up to 11.

Where and when to watch

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2” will be available for your next couch-lock binge April 5, 2019.

'Deadpool 2' — HBO

What is it?

The sequel to the raunchy, ultraviolent, we-get-it-that-it's-R-rated superhero movie starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular Merc with a Mouth.  

Why watch high?

The last decade has given us plenty of great superhero movies to watch high (“Thor: Ragnarok,” “Doctor Strange,” both “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Vol. 2,” “The Lego Batman Movie,” “Aquaman,” and the first “Deadpool,” to name a few), and “Deadpool 2” certainly ranks high (pun only partially intended) among them.

Where and when to watch

“Deadpool 2” is currently available to stream on HBONow.

'Phantom Thread' — HBO

What is it?

Paul Thomas Anderson's weird, dark, funny, fever dream of a period-drama, starring Daniel Day-Lewis in his self-proclaimed final role as an eccentric 1950s London dressmaker who falls for a waitress played by Hollywood newcomer and remarkable scene-stealer Vicky Krieps. The romance that follows is equal parts dazzling, maddening, and bizarre.

Why watch high?

In the March 2019 streaming list, we included Anderson's “Inherent Vice” — a new stoner comedy classic — in our watch-while-lit-list. “Phantom Thread,” in many ways, is a far cry from “Inherent Vice.” But Anderson's sensual, hyper-sensory approach to the material arguably makes the film an even more visceral, immediate joy for the senses. If you're looking for some prestige lit-viewing to go with a few choice dabs this 4/20, “Phantom Thread” is the indulgence for you.

Where and when to watch

“Phantom Thread” is leaving HBO on April 30, 2019, so you've got all month to get lit and enjoy its strange, intoxicating pleasures.
