9 Epic Anime to Watch While High

Published on December 21, 2022

Best stoner anime Luffy

by Cyrus Grant

Gripping stories, great comedy, and super sick power-ups aren’t necessarily unique to anime, but Mama-be-damned if anime doesn’t just do it the best. 

If you’re like us and love a good anime when you’re high, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be going over our favorite anime to watch stoned, and where you can find each of these absolute banger shows.

So, get ready to get super high and go super Saiyan on the best anime for stoners.

One Piece

Where to Watch: Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll

What’s cooler than pirates? How about a young pirate named Luffy, who basically has Mr. Fantastic’s rubbery stretching ability because he ate some crazy-ass fruit? (If only the munchies I ate gave me superpowers.) When it comes to a great anime to watch while stoned, One Piece has it all. It’s funny, action-packed, and full of adventure. One Piece is notorious for having like a thousand episodes, which can feel a bit intimidating, but that’s why it’s solid stoned viewing. Pop it on, zone out a bit while watching a few episodes, and repeat.

What’s it about: The basic premise is Luffy, using the powers he gained from eating the Devil Fruit, assembles a crew as he quests for the legendary treasure known as One Piece, so that he can one day become the King of the Pirates. But, plenty of other pirates are after the same booty (hehe). Oh yeah — and there’s the minor inconvenience that whoever consumes a Devil Fruit loses the ability to swim. Not the greatest weakness to have when you’re living life on the high seas.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

Where to Watch: Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Amazon Prime Video

Hmmm, how to explain JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure…it’s uh, pretty fucking weird, but in a spectacular way. This is one you definitely have to watch to really get the vibe of, and once you do you’ll see why it’s even better high. Basically, imagine a bunch of anime characters that raided David Bowie’s closet and duke it out over multiple generations. Speaking of David Bowie, we have to shout out the creators of JoJo for working famous music groups into the characters’ names — Robert E. O. Speedwagon, Tonpetty, Esidisi, plus so many more — bravo to them. And fun fact, the Hi-Phi oil found in our Mini Mofoz and Yolo Shotz is inspired by Hi-Fi sound, so it’s no wonder we vibe with Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.  Anyway, back to the show, you’re just gonna have to trust us on this one.  

What’s it about: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure follows the wildly absurd Joestar family over multiple generations, as they use their unique psychic abilities and super strength to take on longstanding rivals (who are vampires for a bit) and other random bad guys. 

One Punch Man

Where to Watch: Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Amazon Prime Video

In a world full of powerful superheroes, monsters, and evil villains, one man exists who’s far more powerful than the rest…and it’s super boring for him. One Punch Man is the perfect anime if you love superpowers, lots of action, and just a comically overpowered main character. Like it’s literally comedy. The dude can beat anyone with a half-assed punch.

What’s it about: One Punch Man follows a man named Saitama, who despite being a super average-looking bald dude (it’s his signature feature — other than, you know, his ability to defeat any enemy in one punch), is by far the strongest living being on Earth. He achieved this one-of-a-kind strength simply by doing 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and running 10km (6.2 miles) every day for three years. While you would think his ability to end any fight in a single punch would put him at the top of the hero world, it turns out fighting is no fun when it isn’t really a fight, so he lazily takes care of business when necessary, but never when anyone seems to be paying attention.

Cowboy Bebop

Where to Watch: Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll

You know what’s cooler than a space western? A space western with an elite soundtrack. That pretty much explains Cowboy Bebop. This show is a classic, and like many of the others on this list, it has a great combination of action, comedy, and storytelling. What really makes this a stoner anime and sets it apart from all the others is the music. Between the action-packed visuals and the absolute audio bangers, this is an anime to get absolutely lost in when you’re baked.

What’s it about: Cowboy Bebop follows Spike Spiegel and a couple of his friends (including a bioengineered Welsh Corgi) as they make their way through space onboard their ship, the Bebop. Spike is essentially a space bounty hunter who travels the cosmos looking to take down outlaws as a way to escape his troubled past.

Princess Mononoke

Where to Watch: HBO Max

Ok this one is actually a movie rather than a show, but it would feel almost illegal to make an anime list that doesn’t include something made by Studio Ghibli. Princess Mononoke is an all-time anime classic, and a revolutionary accomplishment for hand-drawn animation. As with pretty much everything Studio Ghibli, this movie is a masterpiece and will have your stoned mind transfixed to the TV as you go through a stunning visual and emotional journey alongside the main characters.

What’s it about: While Princess Mononoke has some deep underlying messages that really need to be watched to fully appreciate, the basic premise is this: A young prince is afflicted with a curse while fighting a demonic boar, leading him to leave his village in search of a cure. On his journey he finds a war taking place between a town and the forest (like, the forest creatures are literally fighting the humans from the town). The conflict, however, isn’t as clear cut as you might think, as the townspeople and their leader have to make iron to protect the people of the village from outside threats, but happen to be harming the forest in the process. Obviously, the forest gods and creatures that live in the forest aren’t super stoked about their home being destroyed, leading to the conflict between them and the humans. 

The Dragon Ball Series

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll and Hulu (only part of the series appears on Hulu)

The Dragon Ball series is one of the most recognizable and beloved anime that exists. It makes the list not only because it’s a classic (the new shit goes hard too once you make it to Dragon Ball Super), but also because there’s no way Master Roshi isn’t sitting on his island just absolutely ripping bongs, blunts, vapes, THC shots, you name it. While Dragon Ball is solid to watch high, be warned, there is a lot of unnecessary screaming. Like, A LOT. 

What’s it about: Dragon Ball follows Goku and his group of friends as they hunt for the seven Dragon Balls throughout the years to fulfill varying wishes. Goku is one of the few remaining Saiyans, a race of powerful warriors that have the ability to gain extreme power by pushing past their limits and gaining the ability to go super Saiyan (to ever-growing levels of powers throughout the show).

Space Dandy

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll and Hulu

Honestly, if we had to pick one anime on this list that truly counts as a “stoner anime,” it would probably have to be Space Dandy. This anime is more serialized, in that each episode doesn’t necessarily lead into the next, which honestly makes it even easier to throw on and just enjoy without being worried about what you might have missed. While it might not have much of a story, it still manages to grab your attention by being hilarious and weirdly fascinating (especially if you’re high).

What’s it about: Because it’s not super story-driven, and also because it’s a weird-ass trip, Space Dandy can be about a number of things. It follows the main character, Dandy, who is a pompadour-adorned alien hunter who often hangs out at a bar called BooBies with his sidekicks (a robot named QT and an alien cat named Meow).

Attack on Titan

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix (Netflix does not currently have all seasons)

Alright, this one is probably the least stoner-y of the anime featured on this list, but hot-damn if it isn’t just so amazing that you’ll want to watch this no matter what your current state of mind. Attack on Titan (often referred to as AoT) is a modern-day masterpiece, filled with epic action, stunning visuals, an amazing story, and more character deaths than Game of Thrones.

What’s it about: Without giving any spoilers, AoT is about a civilization that lives within a series of walls, built to keep out giant man-eating creatures known as titans. The main character, Eren Yeager, vows to join a dangerous titan fighting unit of the military after his mother is eaten by a titan in an attack during his childhood. The show then follows Eren and his comrades throughout the years, as the mysteries of their civilization and the titans come to light.

Mushishi

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll and Hulu

If this show were weed, it would be a top-tier indica. It’s relaxing, tranquil, and yet still impressively gripping. Unlike most of the other shows on here, Mushishi isn’t really a binge anime, but instead something you’ll want to experience slowly while your mind wanders off into an indica-induced state of relaxation.

What’s it about: Mushishi takes place roughly in 1800s Japan and follows the main character, Ginko, who has a unique ability to interact with supernatural creatures known as Mushi. While most humans aren’t able to see or interact with Mushi, these primitive creatures seem to serve no purpose and have no agendas other than to simply survive. While many can be fascinating, some, unfortunately, pose a threat to humans, forcing Ginko to use his unique ability to protect humans from any dangerous Mushi.

While these are some of our favorite anime to watch while high, the real list is infinitely long, as watching almost any top-tier anime can be an amazing stoned experience. (Though if you need more recommendations for what to watch while high, check out our favorite stoner cartoons.)

The Stoner’s Guide to Surviving Christmas

Published on December 1, 2022

stoner Christmas guide

You hear that distant ice cracking? It’s the sound of Mariah Carey being freed from her polar slumber to assault your eardrums every time you go to the grocery store for the next three months. And it sounds a whole lot like those cynical corpo-Santa commercials and the shrill sound of your Q-anon aunt at the holiday dinner you’re forced to attend.

But it ain’t all bad. Even if you don’t celebrate baby Jesus or Coca-Cola Santa, the holidays might just net you some downtime, lots of killer food, and a good excuse to show some love to the best people in your life. And we know just the way to turn all the shitty stuff into a wonderfully chill stoner Christmas for the ages — it all starts with a few puffs of that Jolly Green.     

The Two Strains of Christmas

OK, so technically sativa and indica are the two strains of, like, all the time. BUT, we find that the two main strains are really well suited to different seasonal activities in ways that are kinda perfect, elevating “oh please no,” to“bearable,” and all the way to “actually, I’m having a pretty good time right now.” 

Here’s how to optimize your 420 Christmas with a holiday date that’s always down.

Santa Sativa

Sativa strains like the sticky sweet Iced Lemonade you’ll find in our 1.6-gram infused pre-roll are kind of a “daytime high,” even if you smoke ‘em (or in the case of our YOLO Shotz, drink ‘em) at night. Sativa highs are bright and bold, stimulating your creativity and churning up feelings of straight-up euphoria. Because sativa is more energizing like that, it really lends itself to high-energy, hyper-colorful Christmastime events like

  • Christmas parties
  • Opening tons of presents
  • Christmas caroling
  • Ice skating
  • Touring wild Christmas light setups (we implore you to do this, trust us)  
  • Going to a holiday concert
  • Christmas dances
  • Watching Batman Returns or Bad Santa

Indica-ristmas Spirit

On the flip side, indica like that Big Block in our big ol’ hemp cone blunt can help encourage feelings of peace and relaxation, which you might just need as half your family gets wound up tighter than a gnat’s ass this December. 

Take advantage of indica’s de-stressing potential for

  • Pre-gaming family dinners with your conspiracy-buff cousins
  • Centering yourself while wrapping presents (good luck)
  • Reading nice Christmas stories to the little ones
  • Winding down with hot cider on Christmas Eve 
  • Ignoring everyone screaming about Starbucks cups
  • Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas and Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas

Make Meals (a Lot) Merrier

Even if you don’t like Christmas, there’s a pretty good chance you can find something to appreciate among the Christmas grub spread, whether it’s honey ham or that giant tin of different types of popcorn. (Pro tip: fight the munchies by mixing the caramel and cheese flavors.) 

You’ve celebrated Danksgiving, now it’s time to make Christmas food ascend to the next level with two key allies: cannabutter and Tough Mama’s Berry Crush Yolo Shotz.

Say what you will, but Xmas is like the X Games of baked goods. Whether you go the DIY route or buy it premade, butter infused with cannabis oil turns delicious treats into full-on experiences. Work it into Christmas classics like gingerbread, sugar cookies, brownie brittle, fruit cake, rum cake, peanut butter buckeyes, or (extra) sticky toffee pudding and you’ll just about guarantee some Christmas cheer.

On the Christmas cocktail side, one little $15 bottle of Berry Crush Yolo Shotz makes the Christmas party way better — you’ll get 20 canna-cocktails with 5mg of THC each outta that naughty little boy, and the berry flavor suits the season. We recommend a Cranberry sauce cocktail — here’s how to make it:

  • Fill a rocks glass with ice
  • Add 2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce and 1 1 serving of Berry Crush to a rocks glass
  • Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lemon wedge

Couple sips of that and you might just change your mind about the holidays.

Dankify Your Decor

Why go red and green when you can just go green? Ditch the nutcrackers and creepy animatronic reindeer in favor of some merry-juana themed decor. Make it a stoner Christmas — make it your Christmas — with decor that celebrates your love of leaf:

  • Extra Large Cannabis Wreath by 3rd Street Inn ($46.99) to let the whole neighborhood know it’s about to be a 420 Christmas on these streets.
  • Weed Gift Wrap by Unblushing ($5) because the holiday calls for a different type of rolling paper.
  • Etsy’s selection of weed-themed ornaments (Varies) so you can hang up a bulb that says “Happy Holi-Daze” or a gingerbread man smoking a fat one all while supporting indie artists.
  • Cannabis Light Set by Kurt Adler ($27.99) to light up your holiday while you light up…other stuff.
  • The Rainbow Cannabis Christmas Stocking by Discrete Unlimited ($19.99) because it looks sick and offers a not-subtle hint about the kind of stocking stuffers you really want.
  • The Original Weed Christmas Tree ($329.99) if you just want to go completely extra this Christmas.

Green Up Your Gifts

Getting stuff is cool, and giving stuff is even better. It’s a great way to show someone how much you love them without having to pay a therapist to tell you how to do that without making it weird. Don’t let crusty traditions keep you from infusing your gifting with a big touch of ganja. 

Here’s what’s on Tough Mama’s Official Stoner’s Wishlist this year:

  • Light-Up Merry Kushmas Ugly Christmas Sweater ($59.99) that’s guaranteed to be used every time your giftee inevitably gets invited to one of those f**king sweater parties.
  • Weed and Cobras Deck by Roger Skateboards ($60) so they think of you every time they kickflip (it says “20% skateboarding, 80% weed and cobras” and we agree). 
  • Kind Buds Candle ($8.99) because it’s always good for Grinches to keep a few cheap oh-shit-I-forgot gifts, especially ones that smell like cannabis.
  • High Art: The Definitive Guide to Getting Cultured With Cannabis by Robert Lambrechts and Estefanio Holtz ($15.99) because it finally answers the question, “Is there an edible that will help me understand Cubism?”
  • Weed Men’s and Women’s Crew Socks by Aksels ($14.99) so that you can finally make the gift of socks into something cool.
  • Mini Mofoz by Tough Mama ($32.50) to fill your friends’ stockings with up to 40%THC in an incredibly cute (but still tough) form factor. 

For people who aren’t feeling the holiday vibes, the trick to surviving Christmas is finding ways to inject the things that define you into a time of year that feels like it just doesn’t get you. Think of it like making a playlist in a genre that you don’t love — with a little digging, you’re gonna find enough deep cuts to put together a tracklist you can dance to. 

And like a much hairier Elf on the Shelf, Tough Mama’s here to help you dig deep down into that spot where you keep your long-lost holiday cheer. Just take a few deep breaths and exhale all that smoke like a jolly little Christmas chimney.

30 Best Stoner Names for Your Pet, Baby, Boat, Bong…Whatever

Published on November 18, 2022

best stoner names

by Cyrus Grant

Names are how we make ourselves distinguishable from others. They’re how you can go to the store and pick out some Tough Mama weed and know you got some good shit. They’re also just fun to give out to random things around the house. Whether you’re naming a baby, a pet, a plant, a bong, a boat, or whatever the hell you feel like, these are the perfect stoner names.

Weed and Slang Inspired Names 

  • MaryJane – An obvious classic. If it’s good enough for Spider-Man’s love interest, it’s good enough for your daughter…or bong…or whatever.
  • Reefer – Reefer? I barely know ‘er. Okay, but for real, a great stoner name.
  • Bud – Might seem generic to some crowds, but those who love bud will love Bud.
  • Flower – You’ll have some plausible hippie deniability with this one, but between us, we know which flower you’re talking about.
  • Doobie – It sounds cute and is weed related. Not really any more that needs to be said.
  • Herb – Who knew an old-man name was actually just a subtle stoner name?
  • Blaze – Maybe douchey, maybe awesome, definitely a stoner.
  • Green – Not all names have to be creative. If you like smoking green, make it a name.
  • Indica – For any laid-back and mellow person, pet, or item you’re trying to name.
  • Sativa – A perfect name for the more energetic and uplifting people/things in your life.
  • Kief – Sounds like a normal(ish) name, but it’s the precious little trichome powder slowly collecting at the bottom of your grinder.
  • Ganja – You’re not fooling anyone with this name, but it’s honestly beautiful.

Celebrity Inspired Names

  • Spicoli – After the infamous Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Pick this name for whatever needs some laid-back surf stoner vibes.
  • Bob – Anything Marley related is going to be auto-associated with weed. Bob is subtle, but between Marley, Dylan, and Ross, Bob is a certified stoner name.
  • Ziggy – You could honestly pick any of Bob’s kids’ names, but Ziggy just feels more stoner-y than the rest.
  • Cheech and Chong – Twins, cats, your two favorite smoking pieces. They are the perfect stoner names for anything that comes in pairs.
  • Snoop – After the one and only D-O-Double G, Snoop is a stoner icon, which makes his name a solid stoner name to choose for anything.
  • Willie – After yet another stoner legend, Willie Nelson, this is another name that can pass as a more subtle stoner name.
  • Scooby and Shaggy – For any duo that is destined to love Scooby Snacks. Or any snack, really.
  • Ricky Williams – Anyone who puts up crazy numbers in a professional sport and also drops the quote, “I got high, and forgot I wasn’t supposed to get high” deserves to have someone or something named after them.
  • Janis – While male celebrities might dominate the famous stoner lists, Janis Joplin is more than worthy of being considered when it comes to giving out stoner names.
  • Puff – You’re allowed to be a bit of a Bogart in the circle if your name is literally “Puff.”
  • Smokey – Smokey the Bear wants you to prevent forest fires. But with a name like Smokey, there’s no way you don’t burn something. Save the forests, burn some weed.
  • Wiz – A modern-day marijuana icon, Wiz Khalifa
  • Herodotus – Super deep cut, Herodotus was an ancient Greek philosopher who was writing about getting high back in 440 B.C..

Boat Themed Names (‘cuz boats need good stoner names too)

  • Sea Weed – Get it? Seaweed, Sea WEED? Yeah, you get it.
  • WeedyMcWeedFace – Everybody loves BoatyMcBoatFace. So, why not give it a nice weed-themed spin?
  • High Seas – Fun fact, the high seas are any saltwater that isn’t within a territory or state. Alternatively, it’s anytime you’re high on a boat.
  • Bong Water – Can you put ocean water in a bong? Probably, yeah.
  • Wake ‘n Bake – What do you call the little waves a boat makes? A wake. What do you do when you wake up? Bake. Run with the idea.

Now get out there and give your baby/pet/plant/boat/literally anything you want, a great stoner name. And next time you’re in the dispensary or online looking for high-quality weed that doesn’t mess around, look for the name Tough Mama.

11 Best Stoner Cartoons to Watch While High

Published on October 11, 2022

best stoner cartoons

by Cyrus Grant

Whoever says cartoons are for kids is 1) super lame, and 2) has probably never sat back in their PJs and watched cartoons while stoned out of their minds. Tough Mama doesn’t listen to the haters, and neither should you. So, today we’re giving you a list of the best adult cartoons to watch while high.

Warner Bros

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Watch on Adult Swim and HBO Max

Hmmm how to describe Aqua Teen Hunger Force…. Well, basically, three sentient fast-food items live together and they…do stuff? Honestly, the show doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but for some reason, it’s exactly what you need if your stoned-out brain wants to watch a cartoon. Don’t question it, just let Meatwad, Master Shake, and Frylock lead you on a nonsensical cartoon adventure.

Disclaimer: Watching this show while high will more than likely bring about cravings for milkshakes and fries. Plan accordingly and stock up on some of your favorite munchies.

IMDb

Rick and Morty

Watch on Adult Swim, HBO Max, and Hulu

Rick and Morty need no introduction. It’s one of the most popular shows around, and for good reason. It’s fast-paced, full of trippy adventures, funny, and surprisingly deep. Whether you just want a good high laugh, or you want a show that can provoke thoughts and feelings, you can’t go wrong with Rick and Morty

Just try and stay away from the weird gatekeeping “high IQ” fandom that unfortunately follows the show around like it’s some sort of Mensa-only club. Little do they know you can be high as a kite and still fully grasp the show.

South Park

South Park

Watch on Comedy Central and HBO Max

It’s a classic, and yet it’s still modern. South Park is one of the few shows that has been able to ever-expand its relevancy, and we’re totally here for it. From the old episodes to the new specials, South Park continues to push the boundaries of what you can put on TV. While you can’t actually spark up some Tegridy Farms weed (yet) and watch this show, we’re happy to let you know that Tough Mama’s pre-rolls and vape carts are top-notch and will get you plenty high for your cartoon-watching endeavors.

Adult Swim via Vulture

Smiling Friends

Watch on Adult Swim and HBO Max

The newest show to make our list, Smiling Friends is about two charity employees who just want to bring smiles and happiness into the world. While it doesn’t always go as planned for them in their little TV universe, it will bring a smile to your face when you’re watching this show high on your couch.

IMDb

Futurama

Watch on Hulu

A cartoon blast from the past, set in the distant future, Futurama is just a straight-up good show no matter how sober or stoned you are. Although many of the characters are outcasts in the future, they totally belong on your TV next time you want to get baked and watch cartoons.

Rotten Tomatoes

Robot Chicken

Watch on Adult Swim and HBO Max

Robot Chicken can best be described as an unhinged stop-motion sketch comedy series that often tackles pop culture references and parodies famous franchises. It’s really one of those shows that must have been made for stoners, in that it’s nearly impossible to watch when sober, but completely fascinating when you’re faded.

Wikipedia

The Big Lez Show

Watch on YouTube

Okay, not gonna lie to you about this one. It’s super Australian and there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have no idea what the hell is happening. But Tough Mama be damned if it isn’t just inexplicably hilarious when you’re baked. There are so many selling points, but the pack of stoner sasquatches just resonates with us for some reason (okay maybe we just love big furry stoners, it’s kinda our thing).

Oh, and don’t be deterred by the clear lack of production budget, it’s worth all the pixels and more.

IMDb

Beavis and Butt-Head

Watch on Paramount+

While Beavis and Butt-Head technically never did drugs in the show, there’s no doubt they bring big stoner energy. Like, who else just goes around laughing at everything? Anyways, there’s a proper way to watch this show, and it’s super stoned. 

A small warning — if you happen to watch any of the episodes where Beavis turns into “Cornholio,” there’s a good chance you’ll be walking around the rest of the day with your hands up and your shirt over your head. If you know you know.

Rotten Tomatoes

Mr. Pickles

Watch on Adult Swim and HBO Max

Mr. Pickles is, how should we say this…uhh, really fucked up. Like, satanic, murderous border collie levels of fucked up. It’s honestly kinda terrifying, BUT, it’s absolutely gripping when you’re high. If you have a dark sense of humor, you’ll no doubt find it super funny. 

Heads up, probably not a show for you if you’re prone to weird/bad dreams. But again, for those out there with slightly twisted minds, you’re welcome.

Rotten Tomatoes

The Boondocks

Watch on Adult Swim and HBO Max

Full of comedy, action, and ever-relevant social commentary, The Boondocks is a great show no matter what your current headspace is. It follows two black boys who move with their grandad to a predominantly white neighborhood, leading to a view of American culture that the show makes funny while also providing a clear critique of society.

If you haven’t watched it, you should. And feel free to spark up for an extra kick of entertainment.

IMDb

Disenchantment

Watch on Netflix

Similar to Futurama (more so in art style than content) but set in medieval times, Disenchantment has a magical feel to it, especially if you’re high. The pacing can get a bit weird, but when you’re stoned the fantastical setting is really what you’re there for. Enjoy the magic, and throw this on when you just need a cartoon that’s fun to look at. 

That wraps up our list of the best stoner cartoons to watch while high. Next time some Tough Mama products get you where you’re trying to go, pop on one of these cartoons and just soak it all in.

Best Weed Games to Play at Your Next Party

Published on October 4, 2022

best weed games

by Dan Ketchum

From the dawn of man — or at least from the dawn of ganja — weed has been totally inseparable from parties. And, look, we’re cool with zaza-powered late-night examinations of deep philosophy and the music-enhancing power of a huge blunt (until Devin busts out the acoustic guitar again, no one asked for that DEVIN). But why should booze have exclusive rights to the type of party games that elevate the vibe from a schmooze into a rager? Not on Mama’s watch.

So we’re making an official Tough Mama Declaration, right here, right now: smoking games are the new drinking games. End of story. Let the stoner games begin with this collection of new classics.

Medusa 🐍👁️

Here’s a true classic starter, like basically the beer pong of weed games. In case you didn’t go to school or ever see the stoner masterpiece Clash of the Titans (get on that Ray Harryhausen trip, son), 

Medusa is a mythological hottie with snakes for hair who turns people to stone when they look her in the eye. So in this game, everyone has their own joint (shorties like our Mini Mofoz fit the bill perfectly) and they sit in a circle facing inward. Everybody puts their head down, and on the count of three, raises those heads up to stare at another random player. If you’re making eye contact with someone else, yell “MEDUSA” — whoever says it last has to take a hit.  

Ganjenga 🧱😵

This twist on the party icon Jenga comes rec’d by Leafbuyer, and like regular Jenga, it’s great for a small get-together or for pulling a group aside at a bigger gathering. So you’re gonna need a Jenga set, a Sharpie, and, uh, weed. Obviously. Plus the willingness to ruin — or some might say, improve — that Jenga set.

It takes a little prep, but before the party, you’ll write rules on some or all of the blocks. Your choice. Stuff like “1 hit” to take one hit, “2 hits” to take a double rip, “eyes closed” to take your next turn blind, “leftie” to use your non-dominant hand next turn, “shotz” to take a Yolo Shotz sip. Whatever your weed-addled brain can come up with is fair game.  

Strip Choker 🃏👙🩲

This is strip poker, but with weed. Get a big-assed Infused Hemp Cone Blunt and get in a circle with your friends and friends-with-benefits. You’ll want to be very, very comfy friends; for real, make sure everyone’s 1,000% OK with this beforehand — sexual liberation is great but don’t be a creep. 

With that out of the way, everyone takes a big hit at the same time. First one to cough or exhale loses a single piece of clothing, and so on. Like that cheap Venice Boardwalk tee says: shit happens when you party naked. So let’s make shit happen.  

Don’t Smoke and Drive 🚭🎮

OK, smoking and driving isn’t as deadly as drinking and driving, but it’s time to retrofit the classic Mario Kart-powered drinking game “Don’t Drink and Drive” into the next classic weed game. 

Each player starts with a shorty, like Tough Mama’s .85-gram Mini Mofoz. That shorty must be fully smoked before crossing the finish line of a regular, four-player, three-lap race, but the catch is you cannot touch the controller and the joint at the same time. You must fully put that controller down when you’re smoking and you can only grab it again when the joint’s on the table. Suck it, chess, this is the real strategy game.  

It’s-a me, high as f**k.  

What’s in the Box? 📦😱💨

OK, think of this one like Fear Factor, but all you need is a cardboard box and some stuff that you probably already have around the house. Just cut a hand-sized hole in the box, which conceals a bowl full of something that feels as vile, weird, or surprising as possible. The game runner’s job is to switch out the bowl every round. Go for stuff like peeled boiled tomatoes, super cold ice cubes, slimy expired mushrooms, pudding with chunks of other food in it, wet tortilla chips, chicken livers, your exceptionally chill cat, however creepy or shocking you want to get. The touchers have to stay stone-cold stoic; any reaction equals a mandatory puff. Ideal for a Halloween bash or just the tough guys at the party with something to prove. 

Power Hour ⏰🍃

Elegant in its simplicity, beautifully dumb in its stoner-ness, Power Hour keeps the party flowing by keeping everyone higher than a giraffe’s ass for as long as you want. All you need is a (loud) timer. Set that timer for whatever interval you want — let’s say an hour for light stoners, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less for Tough Mama hardasses. Every time the alarm goes off, everyone has to take a toke (or a sip of Yolo Shotz).  

Or, if you don’t want to kill the vibe with a morning-shift PTSD-triggering alarm, take your drag or your weed-infused shot every time a new song shuffles onto the playlist

Bonus Round😮‍💨🍹🎉

Here’s something beautiful, a Tough Mama party hack if you will: with a communal bowl of Yolo Shotz Party Punch, you can make any old-school drinking game into a new-school stoner game. Just replace the booze with a weed-infused punchy cocktail shot

For a punch bowl that serves about 40 shots with 2.5mg of THC in each shot, you can make a ginger-cran version a little something like this, served over ice:

  • 3 cups of cranberry juice
  • Two 12-oz. bottles of ginger beer
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • Two shots of fresh lime juice
  • One Tough Mama Tropical Punch Yolo Shotz (100mg)
  • A hefty sprinkle of ginger sugar
  • Orange and lemon slices floating in the bowl  

Remember, a recommended normal Yolo Shotz serving is about 5mg of THC, so scale the recipe for how hard your group wants to go, or consider serving Yolo Shotz on their own so partiers can control the dosage individually. Once you’ve got a comfy dosage sorted, you’ve got a versatile smoking game companion. Beer pong? Take a shot when you get scored on. Quarters? Same deal. Kings Cup? You get the idea. For the best stoner games turnout, remember to be safe, get turnt, go hard, and be excellent to each other. Next up: the hunger games, because you will most definitely have the munchies.

Published on September 20, 2022

When you come to Tough Mama’s house for Halloween, you’re guaranteed all treats, no tricks. But before making it to your next Halloween costume party, you’re going to have to go through the annual struggle of picking out the perfect costume (don’t even get Mama started on finding gorilla-sized costumes). So, we wanted to help out and give the people some sweet stoner costume ideas everyone is going to love.

Let’s jump right in!

Straight Up Weed Costumes

Pot Head

They say you can be anything you want if you really put your mind to it. This Halloween put your head in a pot and be…well, a pothead. And while you’re at it, might as well fully commit and have some Tough Mama pre-rolls on deck.

Bong Costume

For the DIY showstoppers out there, becoming a human bong is a surefire way to be the life of the party. Not to mention it’ll be pretty cool to see a giant bong hitting a regular-size bong at some point during the day/night. Some bong on bong action — we’re here for it.

Bag of Weed

What’s better than a bag of weed? Yup, a GIANT bag of weed. We’d recommend filling the costume with grass trimmings or something and bringing a separate giant bag of weed for ease of access.

Solo Character Costumes

Tough Mama

We had to start out with the legend herself — Tough Mama — because who wouldn’t want to be a skateboarding gorilla stocked with grade A weed?

Towelie (South Park)

“You wanna get high?” — Yes Towelie, we do. Just make sure you can back up the offer if you show up to a party quoting everyone’s favorite weed-smoking personified South Park towel.

The Dude (The Big Lebowski) 

No stoner Halloween party is complete without an appearance from the Dude (or multiple the Dudes, probably). The Big Lebowski character is an iconic stoner figure (and the movie is a firm favorite in our list of best movies to watch while high), and if the Dude abides, so should you.

weed costume spicoli

Spicoli (Fast Times at Ridgemont High)

If you have jeans, a button-up, and a bagel, congrats, your next stoner costume is ready to go. Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a wave riding, pizza ordering, stoner legend. Just remember the lesson Mr. Hand taught Spicoli before you show up to the party — whether it’s pizza or weed, make sure you bring enough to share.

weed costume argyle
 Pinterest

Argyle (Stranger Things)

Argyle might be new to our hearts, but he’s an instant stoner icon, and a perfect source of stoner costume inspiration. Get yourself some 80’s print pants, a pizza shirt, and a visor, and you’re ready to go. Pizza and weed are optional…but highly encouraged.

weed costume michelle dazed and confused
Pinterest

Michelle (Dazed and Confused)

If you’re looking for a more feminine stoner to dress up as for your next party, Michelle from Dazed and Confused is serving up the perfect 70’s stoner queen vibes. All you need are Some 70’s style denim pants, a purple tube top, a fringed vest, and a big colorful necklace. Bonus points if you can play some soothing tunes on a guitar.

Couple and Group Costumes

weed costume lighter and joint
Pinterest

Lighter and Joint

Pick your favorite partner in crime and make your way to the party dressed as a lighter and a joint. Truly a match made in heaven. (Tough Tip: If you find yourself without a lighter in life, try out Tough Mama’s vape carts for some flame-free fun.)

weed costume cheech and chong
Pinterest

Cheech and Chong

If you’re looking for an easy and iconic duos costume, look no further than the legendary Cheech and Chong costume. And if you really want to nail down the details, try and recreate the facial hair…oh, and just be super high the whole time.

weed costume friday
Pinterest

Smokey and Craig (Friday)

If “you ain’t got shit to do” other than go to a stoner costume party, Smokey and Craig might be the perfect movie character inspiration. Just try and avoid racking up debts to dangerous drug dealers. In fact, skip the drug dealer and come straight to Tough Mama.

weed costume super troopers
Imgur

Super Troopers

The idea of having a bunch of state troopers roll up to your stoner Halloween party sounds like a total buzzkill. But, there’s an exception if those state troopers are actually just a group in Super Troopers costumes. Just try and turn a blind eye to anyone “smoking the reefer” (that includes yourself).

Bonus: Meme Costumes

It’s no secret at this point — Mama loves memes. So, as not to upset her (and also because who doesn’t love a good meme) we’re throwing in some bonus costumes that turn you into your favorite meme. 

“Aight Imma Head Out”

When there’s only reggie weed at the party.

Confused Cat at Dinner

Them – “All of the kief keeps falling off the pre-roll!”

Me – *Super high off Tough Mama’s robot-infused pre-roll that doesn’t have that problem*

Dancing Disco Kid

When the Tough Mama sativa pre-roll kicks in and it’s just you and the vibes.

That wraps up our best stoner costumes for your next weed-themed Halloween party. But, before we let you go, another little Tough Tip: if you don’t have the time or energy to commit to a kickass costume, just show up to the party with some Tough Mama weed, and people will be just as stoked.

Let us know if you end up trying out any of these costumes at your next party, and definitely tag us in any pictures you post of them!

Dumb Shit to Do While High

Published on July 19, 2022

things to do while high

by Dan Ketchum

The science don’t lie – weed doesn’t just give you the munchies and make memes funnier, it can legit lower your inhibitions, and with less inhibition comes more freedom to try new things, things that might’ve been a little tough in the pre-YOLO SHOTZ world you were living in. 

Look, we’re not saying that you should learn to drive a tractor or fly a hang glider when you’re higher than a giraffe’s ass, but that little push into a less guarded state of mind can definitely open you up to some new possibilities, ranging from extra dumb fun to “hey, this could actually change my life for the better.”  Need some ideas? Here are 10 Tough Mama-approved things to do while high.

1. Grind It Out

Sometimes, it’s hard to learn shit when everyone’s watching. Lucky for you, the skatepark is usually a place where you’ll be in the company of stoners, and cannabis naturally has a tendency to lower stress levels and ease anxious feelings. Plus, skating is just one of the best things to do while high, period.

So try that thing you were too nervous to bust out before. If you’re just getting your Vans wet, you’re high enough to try a basic ollie or some manuals. If you’re feeling like Rodney Mullen, let go and try that laser flip, backside tailslide, or impossible. It isn’t actually impossible – trust the weed.

If you’re in LA and looking for a place to skate, you can check out Tough Mama’s favorite skateparks in the city.

2. Make a Meet Cute

Asking someone out at the grocery store without being a total creep is on, like, every single human’s bucket list, right? If it’s on yours, ease your mind with a hit of indica and start the conversation with a nice simple compliment about munchie choices before you toss in a gentle coffee invite. Or just buy them a Lunchable. You got this.

2. Slip Into Greatness

Two words: Jell-o slip-n-slide. The hyphens make that two words. OK, two compound words? Whatever.

A little baby soap makes slip-n-slides extra slippy, but pile on tubs of Jell-o to add color and a big dash of “why the f**k not?” Stack up some YOLO SHOTZ at the end to make it a race to a gelatin-covered pot of gold.

3. Just…Fingerpaint

Wine and paint nites are some Applebee’s type of shit, but fingerpainting? Why did we ever stop? Because we grew up? Fingerpainting rules, you know it rules, and it sucks that you grew out of it. Toke up and break out those acrylics, let’s paint this thing like it’s a prog rock album cover from 1986.

4. Get Internet Famous 

Wondering how to become a YouTuber? Get high. Yeah, there’s a lot more work to it than that, like video editing, understanding algorithms, networking, and, uh, talent, but you’ll never chase your dreams if you don’t do one thing: start. Try your own take on Zackass, powered by bud and your best buds. Start that weird TikTok recipe trend you’ve been sitting on for months. Stream some of those bonkers-ass indie games that only you have discovered – a little toke always makes the first steps that much easier.

5. Eat Too Much (Sorta) Cheese

The iconic Leaning Tower of Cheeza from Goof Troop left a mark on every kid adjacent to the ‘90s. All you need is a whole sleeve of Ritz crackers, “glue” those shits together with the edible adhesive of your choice (deli slices, more cheese?), and then cover the whole thing in Cheez Whiz till you can’t see a single cracker. Share with your friends – Pauly Shore would want you to.

6. Master the Dungeon

Sometimes, something feeling like it’s tough is only tough because you don’t think it fits your image, but you’ve always really wanted to try it. Don’t tell me you’ve never wanted to pretend to be a lizard wizard. Dungeons & Dragons has been cool since the first season of Stranger Things, and fantasy worlds have been a thing for stoners since your dad got into Lord of the Rings and Led Zeppelin. Take the plunge, and make sure your campaign gets as weird as possible.

7. Say the Thing

We’re not saying you need to confess your undying affection to anyone (though, now that we think about it, we did already suggest that you ask out a stranger) or admit to a murder or anything. But if there’s a kinda awkward little convo you’ve been wanting to have with your person, doing it when you’re both feeling preeeettttty gooooood is probably the best way to do it. Or, ya know, just tell your friends you love ‘em.

8. Stare at a Jellyfish

Here’s the tough part: you’re probably gonna have to get on the freeway. (Mama’s rules: always get high after you arrive at your destination. Don’t be stupid.) But despite its rep, weed can be good for cutting through procrastination, because it’s like your friend who just says, “f**k it, let’s go.” So go. Because, seriously, have you ever stared at a jellyfish when you’re super high? For a long-assed time? It’s like gazing into the spirit of an alien. You will transcend.

9. Get Naked

You already know sex is better high, but we’re going deeper: go to a nude beach with your crew. Let it all flop out in the wind. Remind yourselves that you’re all just human after all. It’s a real bonding experience that’s much easier if you’re a little stoned – just keep an eye out for Tough Mama while you’re there. Technically, she’s always nekkid.

10. Bonus: Get More High

OK, this one’s not really that tough. Or dumb. Or wild. But, uh, we think you should probably be more high right now and we can help.

Mama’s Picks: The 12 Best Movies to Watch High

best movies to watch high

by Cyrus Grant

There really is something special about getting super stoned, throwing on a movie, and just getting lost in the screen. The toughest part is usually picking a movie, so today Tough Mama is helping out with some of the best movies to watch high.

So, grab a Tough Mama pre-roll or vape cartridge, dim the lights, and get ready to hit play.

best movies to watch high Grandma's Boy
20th Century Studios

Grandma’s Boy (2006)

A movie about a video game developer who has to move in with his grandma, Grandma’s Boy has solidified itself as a stoner cult classic. With no shortage of super stoned moments, Grandma’s Boy has some instantly recognizable scenes, including one where the main character and his weed dealer smoke a mega joint and play video games with a chimpanzee (or at least they think they are playing, the TV isn’t even on). We don’t know any chimpanzees with joints you can smoke with, but we do happen to know a gorilla that sells strong-ass pre-rolls.

best movies to watch high Jackass Forever
Paramount Pictures Studio

Jackass Forever (2022)

America’s favorite jackasses have returned to give us more of the stunts, skits, and pranks we all love. We recommend watching any of the Jackass movies while stoned, but Jackass Forever gets the feature because it’s new, and also because Rachel Wolfson shows what it means to be a certified Tough Mama (she lets a freaking scorpion sting her in the face…multiple times). 

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high harold and kumar go to white castle
New Line Cinema

Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)

The first of many stoner buddy films on this list, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is about, well, Harold and Kumar going to White Castle (a burger joint, for those unfamiliar). The premise is pretty simple, two buds get super high and need to cure their munchies, but their trip quickly turns into a gnarly adventure with Neil Patrick Harris (played by Neil Patrick Harris).

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high super troopers
Fox Searchlight Pictures

Super Troopers (2001)

Super Troopers is about Vermont state troopers that straight up have nothing to do other than goof around and prank people, basically. The movie is full of dumb pranks, police rivalries, marijuana smugglers, and hilarious jokes. These troopers are a guaranteed good time, just don’t let them catch you littering and smoking the reefer. 

While we can’t help you with the littering part (it’s pretty easy, just don’t litter), we can recommend Tough Mama’s YOLO SHOTZ if you’re looking for a serious high without the smoke. Just be careful, taking the whole thing at once might leave you feeling like a Vermont state trooper tricked you into eating a whole bag of weed. Oh, and also don’t consume and drive!

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high dazed and confused
Gramercy Pictures

Dazed and Confused (1993)

A movie that’s more than just “alright, alright, alright,” Dazed and Confused is about small-town Texas teenagers trying to find fun in the 1970s. If you’re looking for a movie to watch next time you get stoned, there’s a “fiesta in the making” by clicking play on this classic.

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high pineapple express
Sony Pictures Releasing

Pineapple Express (2008)

Probably the most notable modern stoner film, Pineapple Express is so good they literally named a cannabis strain after it! (Seriously, it didn’t exist before the movie). Another stoner buddy movie, Pineapple Express is about a man and his drug dealer fighting for their lives after getting wrapped up in some serious business, all while constantly baked.

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high the big lebowski
Gramercy Pictures

The Big Lebowski (1998)

The Dude is iconic, and the Dude abides. The Big Lebowski is a movie about a man that loves bowling, white Russians, and his rug that tied the room together. Kidnapping, ransoms, and a crazy friend all try to harsh his mellow, but somehow the Dude always takes it easy with what we’d guess is some really good weed. 

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high friday
New Line Cinema

Friday (1995)

Taking place on one crazy Friday, this movie stars Ice Cube and Chris Tucker, who have to quickly scrounge together some money after smoking $200 worth of their dealer’s weed. Next time some weed knocks you the fuck out, pop on Friday and enjoy the show. We also suggest skipping the dealer and just going straight to Tough Mama for the hook-up.

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high everything, everywhere, all at once
A24

Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

Everything Everywhere All at Once is a movie that can’t adequately be described in words. It’s funny, emotional, full of action, and downright trippy. It explores the concept of a multiverse, including a universe where people have hotdogs for fingers. The movie is fantastic, but experiencing it while high will send you to a different universe…or possibly dozens of universes. Just don’t stare into the bagel!

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high how high
Universal Pictures

How High (2001)

Ever smoked possessed weed that lets you see a ghost who helps you cheat on tests and get into Harvard? Yeah, neither have we, but if that sounds interesting, then How High is the movie for you to watch the next time you’re stoned. It even features Ben Franklin’s “liberty bong,” which is pretty much just a huge cannon-bong hybrid, and we’re here for it.

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high cheech & chong's up in smoke
Paramount Pictures

Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke (1978)

Cheech and Chong are the OG stoner buddies, so a list of stoner movies has to include the iconic duo. Up in Smoke is their first movie and the grandfather to all subsequent weed comedies. Just two men who love to smoke, getting into a series of shenanigans. This one is an oldie but goodie, and a great option for your next high movie viewing party. 

Where to watch.

best movies to watch high tony hawk: until the wheels fall off
HBO

Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off

Bonus recommendation for Tony Hawk’s new documentary on HBO. This documentary provides a look into skateboarding’s biggest icon, Tony Hawk, including a window into all the ramps, tricks, and slams that turned Hawk into a legend. It might not feature weed like most of the other recommendations on here, but damn if it isn’t fascinating to watch sober or stoned!

Watch on HBO.

Let us know how you enjoy the movies, and feel free to throw in some of your favorite suggestions. And remember, Tough Mama’s got your back when it’s movie time and you’re looking to get properly baked.
