How do we know that pot has finally gone mainstream? We know because now even Netflix has their own variety of strains. Netflix issued a press release this week and in doing so announced to the world that it would be developing its own line of 12 marijuana strains with names taken from ten of their most popular shows. Despite the spotty legal status of cannabis throughout North America, the move by family friendly Netflix marks a new era for marijuana acceptance by mainstream companies.
If you want a sample of Netflix’s new bud, you need to be in Hollywood California this weekend at Alternative Health Herbal Services. In promotion for the new season of their marijuana-centric show Disjointed, the public will be able to make purchases of the new strains starting Friday through the end of the weekend. Netflix’s strains are medicinal only, so only California med patients will be eligible to buy.
Netflix foray into the cannabis world, even if it is only a short time promotion, is a bold step that sends a clear message to other mainstream companies: the time for marijuana acceptance is now.
The names of some of the strains should sound familiar to fans of Netflix original series. Disjointed has three of its own strains including Eve’s Bush, The Omega Strain, and Rutherford B Haze.
Instead of naming all 12 strains, we figured it would be best to list them below. (credit adweek.com)
