Talk about Netflix & CHILL
The popular streaming video service, netflix is selling unique strains of marijuana using the titles of their original productions.
The strains of weed are inspired by comedies such as “Orange is the New Black,” “Lady Dynamite,” and “Bojack Horseman.”
Netflix said each flavor was
“cultivated with the specific shows in mind, designed to complement each title based on their tone.”
They will be sold at a pop-up shop in West Hollywood.
The promotional stunt is intended to promote “Disjointed,” a new Netflix show about a woman who opens a marijuana dispensary.
Have you seen it ?
Three of the strains — the Omega Strain, Eve’s Bush, and Rutherford B. Haze — are inspired by “Disjointed,” from “The Big Bang Theory” creator Chuck Lorre. The show’s premiere Friday coincides with the first day of the pop-up shop.
Peyotea 73, an “uplifting sativa hybrid,” was created with “Grace and Frankie” in mind, and Sassafrass OG, with “the power of one thousand pug snorts,” is inspired by “Lady Dynamite.” The last three strains include Baka Bile, “to really ramp up your appetite” and from “Santa Clarita Diet”; “Poussey Riot,” “for kicking it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes” from “Orange Is The New Black;” and “Moon 13,” “not too strong, so you can ‘keep your sanity, no robot friends required,’” from “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”
Due to federal regulations, the strains will not be available for mail-order purchase. Instead, they’ll be for sale at a West Hollywood pop-up shop at Alternative Health Herbal Services this Friday to Sunday. Those with qualifying medical conditions requiring cannabis use (in possession of a medcard), will be able to purchase the branded strains at Ruth’s Alternative Caring, where you can let out your inner stoner. Open for business this weekend in Los Angeles (7828 Santa Monica Blvd).”
Netflix made the point in its press materials that it’s not profiting off the sales of the product, which are for promotional purposes.
