Best Songs to Listen to While High


Creating a mood before a smoke sesh not only boosts the atmosphere but the overall vibe of your high. Whether you enjoy sitting around a fire pit in your yard, finding a scenic overlook, or simply sparking up on your couch, music always adds that extra somethin’ to make your sesh go from chill to super chill. While there are countless songs about weed, celebrating our favorite leafy green plant in almost every genre, not all are created equal — so what are the best songs to listen to while high? 

Next time you’re sprucing up your space to enjoy a joint among friends, or sitting down after a long day of work with your dab rig, set up a Bluetooth speaker and play some of these tunes to experience the optimal, stoner-approved smoke session. Maybe it will get your creative juices flowing, maybe they’ll lull you into a peaceful sleep, or maybe you’ll find the ultimate playlist to pair with that fancy live rosin cart you just purchased. Whatever vibe you’re trying to accomplish, there’s a stoner song for you. Here’s a list of the top 10 stoner songs (and a solid music playlist for cannabis) to listen to while you’re high.

A music playlist for cannabis consumption

1. I Love You Mary Jane by Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill (1993)

Listen to this classic on The Ode to Marijuana playlist by Weed Times and enjoy the sounds of Cypress Hill, the band behind songs about weed like “Dr. Green Thumb” and “Hits from the Bong”. If it was in the original “Friday” (1995), you know it’s one of the best songs to listen to while high.

2. 2AM by Slightly Stoopid (2007)

A song that debuted on their album, “Chronchitis” it’s no surprise that the people behind Slightly Stoopid are ganja-loving stoners. Their music offers dreamy tropical sounds paired with brass instruments and funky rhythms. 

3. Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath (1971)

Though the song supposedly references an Irish cigarette brand, the opening “cough” and heavy tones are perfect for the smoker that enjoys something a bit more rock and roll than jam and funk.

4. Pass that Dutch by Missy Elliott (2003)

A 2000’s classic, Missy Elliott’s “Pass That Dutch” has made it on almost every stoner playlist out there. 

5. Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die by Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson and Jamey Johnson (2012)

Willie Nelson is arguably one of the most well-known cannabis advocates out there. This fun and light-hearted song would be the perfect addition to a backyard smoke sesh or BBQ.

6. More by Flying Lotus ft. Anderson Paak (2019)

If you’re looking for something modern and chill, don’t sleep on anything featuring Anderson Paak. This song by Flying Lotus is the perfect addition to any playlist, stoner or not. Listen to this and more musical gems on Ganjapreneurs playlist, High Productivity

7. Solitude is Bliss by Tame Impala (2010)

Featured on Spotify playlist, Stoner Tracks for Everyone, Tame Impala blends modern sounds with vibey, interesting melodies. It may not be what you think of as a stoner song, but that’s just because you don’t know music like we do.

8. The Wind Cries Mary by Jimi Hendrix (1967)

Immerse yourself in the sounds of the Summer of Love with this iconic Jimi Hendrix song from his famed album, Are You Experienced?

9. Theme from the Bottom by Phish (1996)

A jam band classic with a true cult following, Phish creates music inspired by elements from nature; think tunes that elicit feelings of being under water or floating in the breeze, all packaged and delivered by way of a funky, psychedelic alternative rock band. “Theme from the Bottom” is a classic from their album, Billy Breathes.

10. Spin it Faster by Ben Harper & Ziggy Marley (2021)

A beautiful, real-time reggae beat brings together reggae royalty Ziggy Marley and Ben Harper. The song is a quintessential summertime hit that rounds out our list of best songs to listen to while high.

Choosing a weed playlist that’s right for you is a personal decision. Much like the strains you choose or the smoking accessories you purchase, songs about weed should be carefully curated. There isn’t any one genre that fits the “stoner” demographic. Today, more than 25% of the U.S. population are openly cannabis consumers, according to New Frontier Data. That means that people from all walks of life are enjoying the herb.
