Netflix Launched Weed Strains Named After 'Arrested Development,' 'Bojack Horseman' And Other Shows

The streaming service Netflix entered the cannabis industry last weekend by releasing 'The Netflix Collection' -- a line of 10 special strains named after their best original shows.

"Each strain was cultivated with the specific shows in mind, designed to complement each title based on their tone," Netflix reps said in a press release. "For example, sillier shows may be more indica dominant, while dramedies will be more sativa dominant to help the more powerful scenes resonate."

And the strains were given special names based on the shows like 'Banana Stand Kush' (named after the Bluth family's refreshment venue in 'Arrested Development'), 'Prickly Muffin' (named after a first season episode of 'Bojack Horseman') and 'Poussey Riot' (in honor of 'Orange is the New Black').

The strains were released last weekend at West Hollywood's Alternative Herbal Health Services dispensary to promote the series premiere of 'Disjointed' -- a cannabis comedy starring Kathy Bates as a dispensary owner. But they've since gone up in smoke. The 'Netflix Collection' was a limited-offer, so if you missed out last weekend, you might not get a chance to puff on these herbal homages to your favorite shows.

Then again, with legalization gaining momentum across the country, it wouldn't be surprising if you saw these strains on sale one day in your local cannabis dispensary. Just don't expect your budtender to be Kathy Bates.
