Best Strain for Killing Eve
Killing Eve explores the interaction of three fierce women. We’re obsessed! The 4th and final season (sigh) of this witty whirlwind by Phoebe Waller-Bridge is airing now. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) is a savvy British intelligence officer who dreams of being a spy. Villanelle, played brilliantly by Jodie Comer, is a charismatic assassin with a serious flare for fashion. Fiona Shaw rounds out our trio as Eve’s morally ambiguous boss. When she tasks Eve with capturing Villanelle, she rescues her from endless days of unfulfilling analysis. But Eve and Villanelle quickly develop a mutual obsession—by turns murderous and moonstruck. Always visually stunning and never predictable, this is binge-watching at its finest.
Killer Queen Effects
Characters as complex as those served up by Waller-Bridge deserve a very special strain. Killer Queen is the best strain for this type of show for more than its name. Villanelle is quite literally a killer queen. The strain itself is an energizing, uplifting, and thought-provoking hybrid. It has more of a tropical flavor and earthy, herbal tones. For a strain that will give you the energy you need to focus, Killer Queen is the best. To watch a show like Killing Eve, you’ll want to feel energized and engaged.
Best Strain for Thelma and Louise
For this classic, you’re gonna want to grab your bestie and some popcorn. You may not be able to road trip with this iconic duo, but BC RoadKill is one of the best strains to get you traveling along with this intense, car-chase-filled flick. In Thelma and Louise, best friends (Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon) ditch the drudgery of their daily lives to hit the road together. But a simple weekend escape quickly morphs into a life-and-death run from the police caused by a flirtation turned bad. And these two take that to the extreme. This classic is complete with supporting turns from Harvey Keitel and the scene-stealing performance that turned Brad Pitt into a star. When it was released, back in 1991, it caused a firestorm of cultural fury over how the two women leads took full control of their lives. Watch it now and marvel at how far we’ve come!
BC Roadkill Effects
BC Roadkill is a hybrid strain known for its energizing and euphoric high. For a fast-paced, action and adventure film like Thelma and Louise, you’ll want this kind of uplifting strain. It’s one of the best strains for getting in a giggly mood. So it’ll keep your spirits up even when our heroines are in the tightest spots. Don’t let the name of this strain deter you. While it’s known to have a skunky aroma, its effects are anything but stinky. People find that BC Roadkill is one of the best strains for a relaxing, trance-like high.
Best Strain for Yellowjackets
If you haven’t gotten around to streaming Yellowjackets yet, hold onto your pipe and grab your Honey Banana. Warning: this series is highly addictive! This psychological thriller/coming-of-age drama took 2021 by storm. How’s this for a hook? A plane carrying a high school soccer team crashes deep in the Canadian wilderness. The timeline shifts back and forth between the secrets of the surviving women and the depravity they descended into in order to make it out of the woods alive (in a word, cannibalism). The series is a tour de force of intense performances by the likes of Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis, Tawny Cypress, and Melanie Lynskey. Get ready for a deliciously sinister tale of their days in the wilderness and the scars they still bear from it 25 years later.
Honey Banana Effects
Although this series is anything but saccharine, Honey Banana is definitely the best strain for watching Yellowjackets. While it’s known for being sweet, it’s still got that sting! The flower, itself, can be sticky to the touch like honey, too. Some people report that this hybrid also smells distinctly of banana. Honey Banana can cause a full-body invigorating buzz and feelings of cerebral euphoria. It’s the ideal high for a guilty pleasure like Yellowjackets—euphoric, uplifting, and relaxing. It’s also one of the best strains if you’re looking for cannabis with psychotropic effects. It’ll keep you relaxed even while the hatchet falls.
Best Strain for A League of Their Own
You’ve probably seen A League of Their Own at least once. So you already know that our heroines are the champion Peaches. This 1992 classic shares the story of powerful women seizing their chance to earn a living as professional athletes during World War II. When most men were drafted, women were finally free to fill “masculine” roles—including baseball. The film’s killer ensemble includes Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Rosie O’Donnell, and a rare anti-hero from Tom Hanks. With heart and humor, the film explores how women conquer societal obstacles and achieve their full potential. Get ready to be inspired by feminine power, and perseverance.
Peaches and Cream Effects
The best strain to pair with a film that epitomizes feminine strength, is one that heightens emotions. Peaches and Cream is our strain of choice, and not just because of its name. This strain is fruity, but also spicy. Like our heroines on the Peaches, it might be sweet, but it packs a punch. Peaches and Cream is fantastic for an energizing pick-me-up anytime.
The Best Strain for Watchmen
HBO’s Watchmen is loosely inspired by the DC Comics graphic novel. The second season is supposed to drop soon. So it’s the perfect time to get caught up on the first. Watchmen is set in an alternate history in which the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre spawned massive societal change. That includes police officers, like our badass heroine, Regina King, who mask their identities to safeguard themselves, their families, and society at large. Meanwhile, evil geniuses compete for control of the world through fantastical technology. And superhero, Vision, seems to have left us to our own devices while racial tensions rise again. The plot’s driven by a white supremacist terrorist group trying to get their hands on a diary that holds the full truth of what happened in Tulsa.
Justice Joints Effects
We chose Justice Joints because, like Watchmen, they focus on the fraught racial history of the US. Justice Joints donates all their profits to Cannabis for Black Lives. This coalition works to support Black-owned businesses in the cannabis industry to make it a more fair and equitable industry. The strain in these joints is Miracle Alien Cookies. Justice Joints are also our pick of the best strain for Watchmen because it’s a hybrid that produces creative, happy, and uplifting effects. It creates the perfect mood for fantasy viewing.
The Best Strain for The Devil Wears Prada
Who doesn’t love the cult classic, The Devil Wears Prada? First of all, it stars Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and a hilarious Emily Blunt in her breakout performance. The movie follows idealistic nerd, Andie (Hathaway). Without appreciating the enormous opportunity, she lands a job assisting the most powerful woman in fashion. Of course, the film is based on the salacious bestseller written by one of Anna Wintour’s former assistants. And it’s chock full of fabulous fashion. While thoroughly entertaining, the film also explores the tough decisions women have to make as they navigate how to get ahead.
Blue Cheese Effects
For our money, Blue Cheese is the best strain to pair with such an iconic movie. The name references one of our favorite lines from Blunt’s acerbic character. She says, “For Paris, I’m on this new diet. Well, I don’t eat anything…and when I feel like I’m about to faint, I eat a cube of cheese.” Unlike Blunt’s character, though, this strain is both savory and sweet. It smells of berries and blue cheese. It’s best known for its relaxing and calming effects. The Devil Wears Prada is one of those great films you can watch over and over again. We like to queue it up to wind down at the end of the day. We think Blue Cheese is one of the best strains to induce relaxation without making you too sleepy.
