How to Pair the ‘Cats’ Movie with Cannabis

We asked the experts about the purr-fect puff to enhance the viewing experience

Ever wonder what Taylor Swift and Jason Derulo would look like as sexy, dancing, singing human-feline hybrids? The Cats movie, in theaters December 20, promises that and more. Judging by the trailer, the new film is a visual spectacle that could frighten or entertain you, depending on your tolerance for CGI’d cat humanoids. Either way, cannabis might enhance the experience. Here are some recommendations from local dispensaries.

California Alternative Caregivers

“If I can afford a Diamond preroll, I will see the movie!” says Matthew at California Alternative Caregivers Venice. “It is just the right amount of too much to enjoy something like Cats.” $18 each.

Downtown Patient Group

If the trailer creeped you out, Pascual at Downtown Patient Group, suggests smoking a hybrid called Sweet Thang. It “gives you a happy feeling,” he says, “and won’t make you paranoid.” $35 for an eighth of an ounce.

California Cannabis Melrose

It might be best to not be entirely present when you view the movie. Marco at California Cannabis Melrose recommends the hybrid Crucial Candy. “It’s strong,” he says. “It’s going to zone you out.” $50 for 3.5 grams.
