The Netflix Collection, cannabis strains with names based on characters and themes from the streaming platform’s shows, were available over the weekend at the Alternative Herbal Health pop-up in West Hollywood, California, the Guardian reports. The products were available only to medical cannabis cardholders and Netflix did not profit from the sales.
Some of the strain names included in the line-up were Poussey Riot, from “Orange is the New Black;” Banana Stand Kush, taken from “Arrested Development;” Peyote 73, inspired by “Grace and Frankie;” Moon 13, for “Mystery Science Theater 3000; and Prickly Muffin, from “Bojack Horseman.”
Three of the 10 strains were available from the new Chuck Lorre-created comedy “Disjointed,” which is set in a dispensary and stars Kathy Bates. “Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later,” “Chelsea,” “Lady Dynamine,” and “Santa Clarita Diet” were also represented in the product line.
“Each strain was cultivated with the specific shows in mind, designed to complement each title based on their tone,” a press release stated, noting that Poussey Riot was for “kicking it with somebody talking, and making mad stupid jokes.”
“For example, sillier shows may be more indica dominant, while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate.”
