Enjoying The Holidays With Weed
In the holidays we have all been faced with the challenges of a changing world. Many of us are unable to travel and see our family members, which can make the holidays seem more bleak. If you find yourself stuck at home during the holidays, either alone or with just your immediate family, it can sometimes be difficult to find things to do that will keep everyone’s attention or fill the void.
To help make your holidays a little more enjoyable, we thought you might be interested in some lesser known online activities you can do on your own or with your family. These activities can help you ward off holidays blues and keep everyone happy until the new year!
Have You Tried Google Stadia?
If you’re not a video game enthusiast, you may have missed out on this amazing new technology. If, on the other hand, you love video games and are on a tight budget, there may be a solution for you that you haven’t heard of yet.
Google Stadia is a cloud-based gaming platform that offers a wide range of gaming experiences, including premium AAA and indie games, in stunning 4k resolution without having to spend a fortune on a top-of-the-line gaming rig.
If you didn’t get a PlayStation 5 or a Series X for Christmas, don’t worry – you can still enjoy the power and convenience of Stadia. Just have a strong internet connection – and most of us do these days – and you can play the games in the Stadia library without any downloads, no updates, no installs of any kind. It’s truly revolutionary.
Many gamers have dismissed Stadia as a flawed service, but this is because they don’t understand how it works or what it is. In fact, the game library is expanding regularly, but it’s much smaller than on other platforms. And the titles that are available are of high quality. The future of Stadia is bright.
If you’re unhappy with Cyberpunk 2077’s performance on older consoles and PCs, try it on Stadia and see how amazing it is to play a detailed and visually rich game with no lag or problems. Other great Stadia titles include Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Destiny 2 – all of which are free to play.
Check Out Some Livestreams
If you’re not familiar with Twitch, then you’re missing out on some of the most entertaining and exciting gaming content out there. You can easily discover this trend by checking out twitch.tv, where gamers from all over the world broadcast their gameplay sessions live. Whether you’re a casual player or a hardcore enthusiast, Twitch is definitely worth a look!
There are countless thousands of gamers playing all sorts of video games, which is more than enough to keep anyone entertained. If you don’t find watching people play video games interesting, then you shouldn’t completely disregard Twitch.tv as a source of entertainment.
There’s a lot of streaming content to choose from, regardless of your interests. You can find streams featuring amazing art and music creation, as well as chats and always-on programming that’s new and exciting.
If you love a certain TV show, there are often dedicated streaming platforms that keep the show available all day and night. Some great examples include Futurama and the Most Extreme Elimination Challenge. There are many hidden gems out there that you may not be able to find on more mainstream platforms.
Looking ahead to 2020, we see that the platform is exploding with great content. Some of our favorite channels, including Cathode Cinema and Movie Passed, specialize in programming interesting and unique movies, TV specials and cinema clips you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

No matter what your music tastes are, you’re sure to find something you enjoy on these channels!
Watch Something Cerebral
We all enjoy a good mindless entertainment now and then, and there is no shame in getting lost in another Lord of the Rings or Star Wars marathon. However, if you find yourself flipping through all of the possible options and wondering what to do when you’re bored and high, it may be time to challenge yourself with something more complex and stimulating to the spirit and mind.
There’s no need to get too adventurous and start watching only subtitled foreign films – although doing so opens up a huge range of new cinematic possibilities! There are plenty of amazing, fascinating, and thought-provoking films that perfectly compliment the state of mind of being high and inside all day.
There’s a new Studio Ghibli movie available on Netflix and it’s perfect for adults who enjoy cannabis. These movies are full of intricate and imaginative storytelling that everyone can enjoy, no matter their age. If you’re new to Studio Ghibli movies, we recommend starting with Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke or Howl’s Moving Castle. All of these movies have excellent English voice casts, so you can watch them without ever having to subtitle.
If you’re not a fan of animation, or you’re already familiar with Miyazaki films on the opposite end of the spectrum, you’re in for a real treat with Quentin Tarantino’s movies. Almost all of his films are available on Canadian Netflix, and even if Once Upon a Time in Hollywood isn’t currently available, you’ll love his other films. If you’re a movie buff, you’ll love Quentin Tarantino’s films.
If you’re not a fan of Quentin Tarantino’s films, why not try some of Werner Herzog, Andrei Tarkovsky, or Akira Kurosawa? Any of these directors have extensive back catalogues of films that are sure to provide you with hours of entertainment.
If you’re looking for something to do while high on weed, you should definitely check out some great documentaries about psychology and the social sciences. BBC documentary filmmaker Adam Curtis has a unique and artistic style that makes his documentaries very weighty and thought-provoking, and they can be very enlightening and informative. If you’re interested in understanding how our culture and politics are shaped, or if you just want to see some really strange and surreal stuff, you should definitely check out Hypernormalisation, All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace, or The Century of the Self.
