Life is busy and it can be hard to catch a break when it seems like all you're doing is bouncing from work to social obligations to sleep. That's why there's something special about having the chance to relax, smoke fat weed, and unwind by watching a great show while baked. But when time is short, you don't want to waste what few hours you have on shows that aren't top-notch television masterpieces. Lucky for you, we here at Leafbuyer already got high and watched (too much) TV to save our readers the hassle of doing it themselves.

From comedies to science fiction and fantasy to everything in between, this list of the best shows to binge watch high has something for everyone. Whether you're a picky couple who can never decide what to watch, a friend group that's already too stoned to choose, or a solitary stoner looking for a new favorite show, we have you covered!

Cartoon

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Whether you're 5, 15, or 25+, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a cartoon worth binge watching high. Add some weed into the mix and you're in for a binge watch that will make you laugh, cry, then laugh again through your tears. While this show is only four seasons long, it still packs in enough episodes to be binge-worthy. And if you still feel like you haven't had enough of the Avatar world when you're done, just head on over to the sequel: The Legend of Korra!

As for the Avatar: The Last Airbender movie (what movie?), our suggestion is to skip it entirely. But if you're dedicated to ruining a perfectly good show (like the movie director already did) for yourself then we can't stop you.

Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo may be a show for kids, but that doesn't mean this cartoon can't be enjoyed by an adult on weed. Just look at Shaggy, the obvious stoner of the gang who can't seem to get over his munchies and his dog, Scooby Doo, who is equally obsessed with Scooby Snacks. This lighthearted mystery cartoon series is great for light but engaging binge-watching while high. And that's not to mention the nostalgic aspect of Scooby Doo for anyone who watched the show as a kid.

Comedy

How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother gets a bad rap sometimes, but with good writing and better acting, it deserves more credit. Every episode guarantees at least one hard laugh and a life lesson or two along the way. Whether you're a student or professional, man or woman, single or in a relationship, How I Met Your Mother has a jewel of wisdom for you! And even if you don't feel like learning a life lesson while binging a comedy, the stoner jokes littered throughout the whole show are bound to make you laugh.

All you need to do is smoke some weed (or a sandwich, as the show would say) and get settled in for nine seasons of comedy perfect for marathoning while high. Just be prepared for the occasional heart-wrencher here and there since even the funniest of comedies need lows to highlight the highs!

The Good Place

If you're looking for a wacky comedy to binge watch high with a storyline to match, The Good Place is the show for you! Set in the afterlife with a ton of odd but lovable characters, The Good Place is great for a high binge. Every scenario is more ridiculous than the last and the entire show is one big mind twist! So, get yourself some strong weed and some time free to marathon this show — you won't regret it.

By the end of the second season, you might not know which way is up but that doesn't mean you'll love this kooky show any less. Watching The Good Place while high is an experience any comedy-lover simply shouldn't miss. Two seasons may not be a binge to some, but that's for you to decide. And since this show is so odd, you may decide another watch through is necessary for the full effect.

Cooking

Cooking on High

Is there a better show to binge watch high than one about cooking with weed? Cooking on High can be found on Netflix, making it easy to access for anyone with an account (or anyone who knows the password to someone else's account). Watch talented chefs cook with cannabis to produce gourmet dishes beyond most chef's dreams! Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two about cooking with weed yourself. And even if you don't, that doesn't mean Cooking on High will be any less entertaining. So, light up and get ready for a fun cooking show unlike any other.

The Great British Baking Show

Do you like getting baked, baking, and British television? If so, The Great British Baking Show is the show for you! This competitive cooking show has all of the skill and none of the drama associated with more American televised cooking competitions. The episodes are full of fun banter and baking batter and you'll be hard pressed to find a better cooking show to binge watch high. The contestants cook every kind of baked good under the sun, both savory and sweet.

So, don't skip out on this classic show when deciding your next weekend binge marathon. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two that'll help you the next time you're in your own kitchen. And even if the producers of The Great British Baking Show didn't intend to help a bunch of stoners get better at baking edibles, that was indeed the end result. This show keeps you entertained and teaches you how to make better edibles to boot — there's no losing with this show!

Drama

Breaking Bad

What television-loving stoner hasn't seen this masterpiece of a dramatic show, complete with Bryan Cranston, tons of drugs, and just enough explosions to keep it interesting? Breaking Bad is great to binge while high because it's easy to understand, even if you're blazed beyond comprehension.

Smoke some weed, order a pizza, and watch the downward spiral of our favorite protagonist as he goes from good to bad to worse. By the end, you won't know who to root for — especially if you're high! But between the shootouts and meth labs, you'll find great character development and even a pizza thrown onto a rooftop in a fit of rage. There's something for everybody in Breaking Bad, especially stoned TV enthusiasts.

Handmaid's Tale

Not everyone can handle dark drama shows while well and truly baked, but if you have the stomach to marathon a dystopian show while high then certainly give this show a try. Everything from the cinematography to the acting is spot on, and the storyline isn't too complex to follow while stoned.

And if you feel paranoid watching Handmaid's Tale high, then it probably isn't the weed that's giving you the heebie-jeebies. This book turned into a show is creepy, compelling, and absolutely captivating to any audience, high or sober! But again, if you don't think you can handle watching an endless stream of dystopian nightmare scenarios while stoned then Handmaid's Tale just isn't for you. Everyone else, enjoy your stoned television binge!

Reality

Queer Eye

Queer Eye is perfect for the weed-loving reality TV fans out there, especially those who would enjoy watching five gay men changing peoples' bad lifestyle habits. From the way the contestants dress, decorate their homes, and even the way they think, these men are on a mission to improve every aspect of their lives.

Reality TV isn't for everyone, but with a little weed and some time to binge, Queer Eye can melt even the hardest stoner heart. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two from the hosts of the show! At the very least, you can laugh along with their crazy life-improvement adventures while sitting at home, high as a kite.

You vs. Wild

On the opposite end of the Reality TV spectrum, you can consume fat weed and join Bear Grylls on an interactive adventure series where you call the shots. This show is great to binge watch while high because it isn't just something you sit back and absorb — it's an interactive adventure with absolutely no real-life consequences! So, don't worry about being too high to face that alligator; Bear Grylls will do it for you on You vs. Wild.

Stoner

That '70s Show

You can't mention stoner television without giving at least an honorable mention to That '70s Show. Most stoners out there can relate to the main characters as they get high, defy authority, and have a blast while doing it. There isn't much of a difference between teen rebellion now and in the '70s, though the weed at least is stronger today!

For an even more authentic experience, look for strains from the '70s era to smoke along with this classic stoner show. You can smoke, binge-watch, and repeat until you remember every line (even while baked). If you like weed and comedy, you can't go wrong binge watching That '70s Show.

Wilfred

Wilfred is a stoner comedy with a seriously dark streak — perfect for any stoner with a slightly morbid sense of humor. Follow the weed-loving main character through his odd friendship with his attractive, taken neighbor's dog who just so happens to look and speak like a human (but only to him). If that isn't weird enough for all you weed-lovers out there, then wait and watch; there's more!

With Elijah Wood as our stoner protagonist, it's hard not to enjoy this well-put-together piece of binge-worthy television. But for anyone who doesn't enjoy dark humor, Wilfred probably isn't for you (high or not).

Science Fiction and Fantasy

Game of Thrones

Some might argue that Game of Thrones is too complicated to binge watch high, but I beg to differ. Sure, there's a pretty steep learning curve of names, places, and plots in the beginning, but once you're into this adults-only fantasy, then weed only adds to the experience. Casual and hardcore fantasy fans alike can toke to this epic fantasy tale.

With eight seasons worth of material and super long episodes to match, you won't run out of entertainment anytime soon. Get high and get invested in what just might be the most gripping fantasy TV show of all time.

Stranger Things

Stranger Things is an amazing show to mow through after getting baked. In fact, you could probably binge watch an entire season in a day or two. You'll love the retro setting, the oddly talented child actors, and the second season just as much as the first (which is rare).

You'll fall in love with the whole cast of characters, from kids to adults and protagonists to antagonists. Even the monsters are cute! And while Strangers Things is a fantastic show sober, high, or anything in between, a little weed certainly can't hurt in making this show even more entertaining. Even those out there who aren't fans of science fiction can't help but enjoy this instant classic of a television show.
