Marijuana can make everything better if you know what strain, dose, and setting to choose. A lot of consumers just love playing video games or watching some great movies after they roll up a joint or bake some edibles. Why? Because cannabis can make good moments excellent. The horrors are scarier, the comedies are funnier, and melodramas are more romantic. Indie films are becoming more creative, and documentaries are easier-to-understand. But which of the hundreds strains to choose to turn watching a movie into the euphoric experience? Well, let us find out.

What Effects a Good Strain for Watching Movies Should Produce?

This question is very difficult to answer. The thing is it depends on plenty of factors and circumstances. To narrow the search, just ask yourself the following questions:

Do I want to watch a drama, comedy, thriller, etc.?
Do I want to watch it alone or with my friends?
When do I want to watch it, in the middle of the day or maybe in the evening?
What effect would I like to feel, energy or relaxation?

There are tons of great strains for watching a movie. You can choose an energetic one, the laugh-inducing machine, a strain that will make you creative and focused, and so on. Still, though the number of possible effects and characteristics is overwhelming, there are some top strains, which are considered the best when it comes to watching movies.

1. Blue Diesel

Basic characteristics of Blue Diesel (Blue City Diesel or New Blue Diesel):

THC – 16 – 19%
CBD – 0.49 – 0.34%
Terpenes – Pinene, Ocimene, Phellandrene
Hybrid
Energetic, Aroused, Talkative

Blue Diesel has famous parents. They are still popular Blueberry and NYC Diesel gave birth to this hybrid, and their offspring is even better than parents, at least when it comes to movies. It is a great relaxing strain, which, however, will not make you hungry or sleepy. Moreover, this is definitely the daytime strain, so avoid consuming it late in the evening. The best thing about Blue Diesel is that it takes all the worst things away. It will rid you of pain, nausea, mind and body tension without bringing anxiety and/or paranoia. This is the pure body high, and you will be able to enjoy it to the fullest when watching a movie and feeling that smooth mind high, too.

2. Black Diamond

Basic characteristics of Black Diamond:

THC – 16.7 – 20.7%
CBD – 0.02 – 0.22%
Terpenes – Linalool, Caryophyllene, Camphene
Indica
Euphoric, Giggly, Energetic

If you are thinking that “this one might be a good option,” we have the only message for you, and it goes like this: “Just buy more snacks.” You will definitely need a lot of food, more than you usually eat when watching TV. This earthy, musky strain that tastes like red wine is pretty strong: it will not only make you giggle all the time but also make you hungrier than you have ever been. Still, these are not the only things you need to know about Black Diamond. It is used both for medicinal and recreational purposes. Moreover, it is considered medical rather than recreational strain because it helps people with bipolar, patients suffering from pain or insomnia, as well as consumers who want to get rid of stress. At the same time, it is one of the best recreational strains ever, and it is just ideal for watching a good comedy.

3. Alice In Wonderland

Basic characteristics of Alice In Wonderland:

THC – 18 – 21%
CBD – 0.35 – 1.09%
Terpenes – Bisabolol, Valencene, Ocimene
Sativa
Giggly, Uplifted, Energetic

As you can see, this is a new strain (you will also find some more new strains below). Though …

Will Missouri Legalize Cannabis? Amendment 3 Suffers Another Attack This Time by State NAACP

Cannabis legalization efforts in Missouri are under attack once again, this time by The Missouri State Conference of the NAACP.

What Happened

The Missouri NAACP, breaking with chapters in the St. Louis area is urging its members to vote against Amendment 3 on the Nov. 8 ballot, reported the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch.

The group announced Thursday that it believes recreational marijuana legalization, as it is proposed under Amendment 3, would prevent minorities from entering the cannabis industry. 

“Marijuana possession should not be a constitutional crime. Additionally, for years now, Black people, other minorities, and people who have been criminalized by marijuana laws in the past have been unable to enter the medical marijuana market,” the Missouri NAACP wrote. “That is not right. In an effort to prevent the permanent exclusion of minorities from the cannabis industry in the state of Missouri, the NAACP calls upon every voter to reject the criminalization of marijuana possession, de facto racist regulation of the cannabis market, and the wool being pulled over our eyes by the supporters of Amendment 3.”

Under Amendment 3, the first “comprehensive” cannabis business licenses would be provided to existing medical marijuana companies. 

The state’s chapter highlighted that the amendment “does not increase the number of available full market licenses” and claims that giving “micro” business licenses to disadvantaged groups makes a “very limited” program. 

According to Nimrod “Rod” Chapel Jr., president of the Missouri NAACP, members agreed last week …
