Cannabis serves many purposes for many activities: Whether it’s working out, getting work done, or working on your relationship, cannabis can heighten all these experiences and more. We’ve crafted three soundtracks for three kinds of stoned – keep reading to see what Spotify tracks we recommend for stoners!
Sweat it Out
If you don’t feel like mixing your weed with a group activity (though we have some great fitness classes to recommend), pop in your earbuds and listen to this playlist on the treadmill or the trail. Skip inhaling and ingest your cannabis instead, through many options ranging from powders to mix into your smoothie to nutritional edibles that pack a protein and cannabis punch.
“Paper Planes” by M.I.A.
Let the opening lyric “I fly like paper, get high like planes” be your guide as you launch into your exercise routine.
“Pass That Dutch” by Missy Elliot
Of course one of the most innovative rappers of all time would be cannabis-friendly. This catchy number features rhythmic clapping that makes you feel like you’re being cheered on during your workout. Plus, the lyrics “Pop that, pop that, jiggle that fat (ahh!) / Don’t stop, get it till ya clothes get wet” is a good reminder not to stop until you break a sweat.
“Broccoli” DRAM feat. Lil Yachty
One of the most fun songs about weed to come along in a while, with piano that will put a pep in your step. This song is a good reminder to eat and smoke your greens.
“Ganja Burn” by Nicki Minaj
A slower burn from Minaj than some of her more upbeat bangers, this one’s good for a light jog or hot yoga. Feel the burn in more ways than one.
“I Got Five on it” by Luniz
This nineties jam will get you through the final stretch. Take inspiration from it and share your workout and your weed with a friend.
“James Joint” by Rihanna
Listen to this while you cool down. It’s a slow burn you can stretch to, but if you want to use this time to light a joint, Rihanna wouldn’t judge. After all, she opens the song proclaiming, “I’d rather be smoking weed.”

Make a masterpiece
This playlist goes all in on odes to the creativity-enhancing wonder plant. Think of how many books, paintings, and, not to forget, songs have been created while the artist enjoyed a puff or two. Cannabis is made for mind expansion, so light up a joint, preferably a Purple Haze or Chemdawg strain, and let the creative juices flow.
“Sweet Leaf” by Black Sabbath
Take advice from the grandfathers of heavy metal, “Come on now, try it out.” If you’ve ever needed some introspection, consider Black Sabbath’s canna claim, “You introduced me to my mind.”
“Get High” by Brandy Clark
This is a perfect example of song as storytelling. Hopefully it will inspire you to tell a story–with words, paint, dance, etc.–that rings with as much authenticity and poignancy.
“White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane
Before they went eighties pop, these classic rockers’ knew what they were looking for down the rabbit hole, particularly something to “feed your head.” This is hands down the most playful take on cannabis in music. Let’s be honest, Lewis Carroll probably enjoyed a toke himself when dreaming up the world beyond the looking glass. Now, so can you.
“Might as Well Get Stoned” by Chris Stapleton
Nothing fuels art like a broken heart. And weed.
“Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix
If you’re going to smoke the strain, listen to the song. Perhaps Hendrix’s dream-inspired lyrics will paint a picture in your head worthy of being immortalized in art.
“Follow Your Arrow” by Kacey Musgraves
Every artist needs a reminder now and again that it’s good to be an individual. It also doesn’t hurt to hear a musician give you permission to “roll up the joint” when life gets too dull.
“Roll Me Up” by Willie Nelson, feat. Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson, & Jamey Johnson
The man, the myth, the legend. Willie Nelson has plenty of diddies about his favorite past time, but this one serves as his opus, the song to sing at his funeral whenever the great one is laid to rest. Every artist longs for a legacy, and Willie has playfully cemented his here, with help from another great artist-stoner, Snoop Dogg.

Cannabis is more fun when you share it with someone you love. Share a joint while taking a romantic stroll or consider bringing cannabis into the bedroom. There are a lot of cannabis-infused lube options out there for you and your partner to enjoy together.
“Kaya” by Bob Marley
When it’s raining outside and you want to feel good, reach for your “kaya” and touch the sky. A rainy day is the perfect excuse to stay in bed with your boo.
“Weed Instead of Roses” by Ashley Monroe
If you and your partner have been together for a long time, consider something more exciting to spice up your sex life. Scrap the teddy bears and boxes of chocolate and give her or him what they really want.
“Dooo it” by Miley Cyrus
A song about love and weed.
“Often” by The Weeknd
The sensual crooner sings about drugs about as much or more than he sings about sex. This one goes all in on references to both.
“Sleep With a Stranger” by Nikki Lane
Not every sexual encounter is about roses, romance, and eternal love. Sometimes you just want a little fun. “Tonight will be a good night to get a little stoned / So come on, baby, I don’t want to leave alone.”
“Got to Get You Into My Life” by The Beatles
It sounds like a love song, but the object of their affection is weed.
