What to Stream on Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Amazon This June While High

May 31, 2019   10:00 am PST

You're home, you've smoked (or dabbed, or vaped, or edibled) and you're ready to stream something that will soothe, engage, and invigorate your stoney eyes and ears. Amidst the endless pool of content streaming options that is the Internet, Weedmaps News is offering a streamlined selection of stoney shows and movies to watch high, available on major streaming platforms in June 2019.

'I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson' — Netflix

What is it?

A new sketch comedy show from “Saturday Night Live” alum Tim Robinson, “I Think You Should Leave” made us laugh so hard after recommending it as a comedy sketch to watch while really stoned, that it deserves another mention. Robinson's brand of absurd, surreal, reverse-logic humor is on full display in each sketch (many of which were rejected sketches from Robinson's “SNL” days).

Why Watch High?

Most sketches beginning with one insufferable character slowly contaminating the rest of the sketch with their wild idiocy. It's a gleefully precise, yet anarchic format that's sure to click with stoned viewers.

Where and When to Watch

“I Think You Should Leave” premiered on Netflix back in April, but we'd be remiss if we didn't take the time to recommend the latest, greatest, and funniest high watch from the mammoth streaming service.  

'Vox Lux' — Hulu

What is it?

A criminally overlooked movie from 2018 that chronicles the extreme highs and lows of an aging pop star's life, starring Natalie Portman in one of her absolute finest (and surely dankest) performances to date.

Why Watch High?

In addition to the tour de force turn from Portman, Director Brady Corbet's hypnotic visual approach to the story, which brashly explores a shocking connection between celebrity and terrorism in America, makes “Vox Lux” a powerful hypersensory experience under the influence of a mild edible.

When and Where to Watch

“Vox Lux” is set to stream on Hulu on June 3, 2019.

'Black Mirror' Season 5  — Netflix

What is it?

Everyone's favorite sci-fi anthology series, specializing in unrelenting, nightmarish, “Twilight Zone”-esque dissections of all the technological anxieties that ail us in the 21st century.

Why Watch High?

Well into its massively successful run on Netflix, “Black Mirror” has built a sizable reputation for the type of trippy sci-fi ruminations (and gorgeously high production values) that the stoned mind is sure to devour like candy.

Where and When to Watch

“Black Mirror” 's fifth season is scheduled to debut on Netflix on June 5, 2019.

'A Star is Born' — HBO

What is it?

Bradley Cooper wrote, directed, and starred in this gorgeously executed, Oscar-nominated Hollywood vanity project. Lady Gaga slays as the titular rising star, a pop singer whose romance with Cooper's aging rock star sets the stage for this sweeping ode to the prestige, star-powered dramas of Hollywood's golden age.

Why watch high?

On the surface, “A Star is Born” may not sound like a stoner's ideal high-watch. But listen, Bradley Cooper directs the fuck out of this movie — taking what might have been a stale Oscar-bait musical and turning it into an intoxicating trip of vivid, dreamlike imagery and enrapturing performances from its stars (especially from Lady Gaga, whose one-in-a-million voice is on full display throughout the film's soundtrack). Best to smoke a bowl of your favorite hazy flower and take it all in.

When and Where to Watch

“A Star is Born” makes its streaming debut June 8, 2019 on HBONow.

'Vice' — Hulu

What is it?

The Oscar-contending gonzo-biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney, starring Christian Bale as the Vice himself, and directed by Adam McKay.

Why Watch High?

For our 2019 Weedmaps News Stoned Oscars, we awarded “Vice” the title of Screenplay Most Likely Written Under the Influence. Did McKay actually write the entire “Vice” screenplay while baked? We don't know. But the movie's wild, darkly comic structure does make it feel like a lively, entertaining political conversation you might have with your hip-stoner uncle during a sesh.

Where and When to Watch

Do a dab or two and check out “Vice” on Hulu starting June 10, 2019.

'Too Old to Die Young' — Amazon Prime

What is it?

A new series from Nicolas Winding Refn, director of such new-cult films as “Drive” and “Only God Forgives,” exploring the criminal underworld of a highly stylized, neon-drenched fantasy version of Los Angeles.  

Why Watch High?

Be forewarned: Refn's movies are highly divisive and typically ultra-violent, and his new series of 10, 90-minute episodes is sure to be a challenging (if not rewarding) endurance test. But from the looks of the show's Twitter campaign, “Too Old to Die Young” may also offer some intoxicating audiovisual catharsis for your next heavy binge-and-smoke sesh.

When and Where to Watch

For those of us who weren't lucky enough to attend the show's two-episode premiere at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, “Too Old to Die Young” is set to be streaming on Amazon Prime on June 14, 2019.

'Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse' — Netflix

Another winner from our 2019 Stoned Oscars, as well as our pick for the best superhero movie to watch high, “Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse” is an animated superhero flick from the guys who brought you “The Lego Movie.”  

Why Watch High?

“Spider-Verse” is a colorful, dimension-hopping, mind-melting comic book trip through a familiar pop-culture universe that practically begs to be experienced high.

Where and When to Watch

“Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse” is due to be streaming on Netflix on June 26, 2019.
