Netflix Teamed Up With A Pot Dispensary To Create 12 Weed Strains Based On Its Shows

They sold so much that this is likely to be the start of something.

Netflix knows its customer — or, more specifically, the streaming service knows who to target in promotional efforts for its upcoming weed-centric comedy “Disjointed.” Partnering with a creative branding company, Carrot, and a West Hollywood pot dispensary, Alternative Herbal Health Services, the company curated a dozen different strains of weed that ostensibly pair well with its programmatic offerings.

Now, co-branding weed — even in the lax jurisdiction of West Hollywood, California — is a dicey proposition for an international multibillion-dollar media company. So Netflix took pains to maintain an arm’s-length relationship, insistent, according to Ad Week, that it didn’t touch the finished product and assigned a team of lawyers to ensure that this particular brand of corporate drug-pushing was all aboveboard.

It seems they did a decent job of walking the line, because Netflix is still streaming after offering the following co-branded strains of pot:

If you, for whatever reason, happen to indulge in marijuana and don’t find a product above that speaks to your personal tastes, then … maybe it’s time you stopped being so picky about your pot.

There’s no word on expanding the offerings beyond the West Hollywood AHHS dispensary, but if sales to date are any indication, this partnership has legs. The dispensary moved 27 pounds (432 ounces) of Netflix-themed weed just last weekend. That’s 432 times about $360 an ounce retail (assuming people are buying smaller quantities marked up and larger quantities discounted) for a possible weekend take of over $155,000.

The big takeaway from this story? If your conscience can handle it, get in the dispensary business as soon as you possibly can.

President Trump's appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland was a mixed bag.

The theme of the event was climate change, but Trump chose to use his 30 minutes of speaking time to brag about the "spectacular" U.S. economy and encouraged world leaders to invest in America.

He didn't mention climate change once.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

The Australian bushfires have claimed 27 human lives, an estimated 1 billion animals are feared dead, and thousands of properties have been completely decimated.
