There’s something wonderful about listening to music while you’re stoned. For many of us, smoking weed can change music from a simple auditory enjoyment to a full-body experience. Whether it’s ambient tunes or stoner classics, we’ve compiled a list of the best songs to listen to while high with a little something for everyone.
Smoke Weed Everyday - Snoop Dogg
The only artist to feature twice on this weed-smoking playlist, Snoop always delivers the right vibes for getting high. His original ode to the chronic has become the ultimate stoner anthem and has also been sampled in countless bass-boosted versions.
Bowl for Two - The Expendables
When it’s “time to unwind,” you can’t go wrong with The Expendables’ reggae-rock sound. “Bowl for Two” is the perfect soundtrack for when you and your best bud or significant other are kicking back and sharing a bowl.
Silvia - Miike Snow
If you’re smoking solo and feeling creative, Miike Snow’s pop-electronic track “Silvia” off their self-titled debut album is an excellent accompaniment. Its ultimately chill psychedelic vibes are ideal for letting your thoughts wander and getting the creative juices flowing.
Blueberry Yum Yum - Ludacris
Luda’s smooth rap about the famed strain of the same name, Blueberry Yum Yum lyrically sums up the experience of getting high on really good weed. Just like the buzzy and heady strain for which it was named, this song is great for a wake and bake.
Tubthumping - Chumbawumba
There’s no denying it: this 1997 cult hit gets people hyped. Perfect for a gathering with old friends, this song is so ingrained in many of us, it’s nearly impossible not to sing along.
Mary Jane Shoes - Fergie
Well known for her poppy and upbeat songs like “Fergalicious” and “Glamorous,” Fergie’s “Mary Jane Shoes” is a deeply personal and lightly veiled ode to ganja. Her soulful voice draws the listener in with the soothing lyrics: “the whole world feels a little bit brighter, my heavy steps get a little bit lighter” then drops a rock-heavy surprise ending.
Come Around - Collie Buddz
Sitting around waiting for the plug all day? When “finally the herbs come around,” this is the perfect song for kicking back and having a smoke.
Hits from the Bong - Cypress Hill
Cypress Hill makes it hard to pick just one, but “Hits From the Bong” is obviously the ideal choice for taking a fat rip from your favorite water pipe.
Ganja Dub - Sukh Knight
Ganja and dubstep have always been a match made in heaven, and Sukh Knight creates a hybrid of the two with funky beats and a monologue on the virtues of the natural herb.
In the Cut - Wiz Khalifa
Wiz is an icon in the cannabis world, and he has dedicated many tracks to weed. If you’re enjoying some Kush and Orange Juice first thing in the morning, you can’t go wrong with “In the Cut,” which features the lyrics: “Wake up, bake up, gotta get my cake up.”
Put Your Records On - Ritt Momney
Ritt Momney serves up an atmospheric and silky-smooth cover of Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Put Your Records On” and invites you to go ahead and let your hair down.
Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath
It turns out that the pioneers of heavy metal are also big fans of cannabis. There’s nothing quite like getting high to Ozzy’s sweet nothings about that sweet leaf:
“You introduced me, to my mind….And left me wanting, you and your kind…You gave to me a new belief...and soon the world will love you sweet leaf”
Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi
Kid Cudi has amassed several hits that make reference to cannabis, including “Marijuana” and “Day N’ Nite” but his mega-hit “Pursuit of Happiness” is one of the best songs to listen to while high. Its upbeat refrain, laced with a touch of melancholy, strikes the perfect chord at 2AM on summer nights.
Electric Love - BØRNS
With its sweetly serenading lyrics and intoxicating melodies, this song creates the perfect backdrop for getting high with your significant other or even your secret crush.
I Love You - Mike Love
If you’re looking for great vibes in your smoke session, you can’t beat Mike Love. The Hawaii-born reggae singer showers you in positivity with his song dedicated to a love for all creation. It’s the musical equivalent of getting wrapped in a warm and fuzzy blanket.
Goose - No Seeds
This song is perfect for smoking weed because it’s essentially a catalog of dank strains.
Blunt Blowin - Lil Wayne
When you hear the familiar sound of a lighter flick in the first few seconds of the song, you know Weezy is about to spit some lyrical fire littered with the analogy, profanity, and drug references. Aptly named, this song pairs well with a fat blunt.
One Love - Bob Marley
It wouldn’t be a stoner playlist without at least one entry from the legendary Bob Marley. This song is CLASSIC. STONER. VIBES.
Stoned - Smash Mouth
“I’m getting stoned, and what’s wrong with that?” Smash Mouth lends its era-defining sound to a song about wanting to be left alone while getting high.
Legalize it - Peter Tosh
One of the original members of the Wailers, along with Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh offers his take on cannabis with his lyrics, “legalize it and don’t criticise it,” which still rings true today.
My Medicine - Snoop Dogg ft. Willie Nelson
It’s hard to think of anything better to listen to while smoking weed than a country/rap crossover of two stoner icons: Snoop and Willie Nelson. The official music video features Snoop in full country Western regalia that can’t be missed.
Sober - Childish Gambino
If you’re in your feelings, Childish Gambino has a smooth voice, airy melodies, and a surprising beat drop to instantly put you in the right frame of mind for getting “so high.”
Paper Planes - MIA
Another infectious jam, MIA invites you to sing along, or at least imitate a series of gunshots and cash register noises.
Post Malone - White Iverson
Post Malone may be the best thing we never knew we needed in the last decade, and White Iverson gives you the ideal tunes to sway to while getting high.
Too High - Lil Dicky
Lil Dicky is known for his hilarious and irreverent raps, and “Too High” certainly does not disappoint. Although this song is probably not ideal when you’re feeling too high, it is a perfect description of what it feels like to get totally wrecked on a super loud strain.
Strawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles
One of the Beatles’ greatest triumphs, this song’s chill and psychedelic vibe is almost scientifically formulated for getting high.
