Netflix Has Released Its Own Weed Strains Named After Popular Shows

Despite some people thinking that 'Netflix and chill' might be synonymous with sexy time, the streaming service has a different kind of chill in mind.

To promote its new series Disjointed, which stars Kathy Bates, it's teamed up with a Los Angeles dispensary and invented Netflix inspired names for a range of cannabis products.

In a press release, the company says: "Each strain was cultivated with the specific shows in mind, designed to complement each title based on their tone. For example, sillier shows may be more indica dominant, while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate."

There's a strain called Poussey Riot in homage to Orange is the New Black and is described as for those 'kicking it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes'. Banana Stand Kush is derived from Arrested Development, while the Camp Firewood gets its name from Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later.

The other strains come from Bojack Horseman, Chelsea, Grace And Frankie, Lady Dynamite, Santa Clarita Diet, and Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return.

There are three strains, The Omega Strain, Eve's Bush, and Rutherford B. Haze, which serve as the centrepiece for the project as they're from new show Disjointed.

The original Netflix series follows Kathy Bates, who plays Ruth Whitefeather Feldman, who employs her son and others to run her LA weed dispensary.

The show is produced by Chuck Lorre (Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men) and CNN describes it as: "Disjointed brings the style of a traditional multi-camera comedy to the streaming service, complete with studio-audience laughter. But the writers also play with those conventions, such as incorporating commercial spoofs for pot-themed products, which is probably the cleverest recurring bit the show has to offer."

It was released on August 25 and Netflix has ordered 20 episodes. Unfortunately, today is the last day that you can pick up the Netflix inspired cannabis strains at the Alternative Herbal Health Services in West Hollywood, if you have a medical certificate.
