The Best Simpsons Episodes And Their Ideal Strains


So watching The Simpsons and smoking weed definitely go well together. I’ve been a big fan of The Simpsons since I was a kid, I used to watch the new episode come out weekly with my family and it was my favourite ritual. It was also the only time we ate in front of the TV so it felt extra special. As a millennial who grew up with early Simpsons, I think it’s pretty safe to say that I won’t be putting any episodes into this list from beyond season 9. If you also happen to be a fan of The Simpsons and smoking weed then I hope I do you proud. Here are some of the episodes most widely agreed to be the best and the perfect strains to go with them. 


You Only Move Twice


I have to start with one of my absolute favourite episodes, You Only Move Twice featuring the fantastic Hank Scorpio. This episode has all the classic dry and weird comedy of The Simpsons alongside the slightly strange twist of Homer accidentally working for a straight-up supervillain. This episode also has some of the very best bits, many of which were actually improvised by the actor playing Hank Scorpio. The famous hammock district bit was almost completely improvised. Since this episode has a good number of bizarre jokes, plenty of plot, and a distinctly wacky plotline I think we need a real giggle strain. Laughing Buddha is a fantastic strain for watching comedy. It has an energetic effect that is also uplifting and guaranteed to make you feel generally happy. It is pretty powerful with a THC level of 22% and has actual won an award or two. Laughing Buddha grows well indoors or in a greenhouse and has a flowering time of 70 – 75 days. 


Cape Feare

Another absolute classic based on the film Cape Fear and featuring everyone’s favourite villain, Sideshow Bob. This is potentially a slightly more intellectual episode what with the dulcet tones of Kelsey Grammar singing the score of the H.M.S Pinafore. Also being based on a classic film, well a remake of a classic film, means you could benefit from being a little sharper so you can spot all the references. For these reasons, I reckon that Lemon Cake is the best option as its effect is cerebral, uplifting and creative. It is also great for snacking along to watching cartoons, or for anyone suffering from nausea, stress and lack of appetite. Lemon Cake has a THC level of 23% and is Sativa dominant. It has a flowering time of 63 – 70 days and can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. 


The Mysterious Voyage Of Our Homer


This episode is by far one of the trippiest episodes of the Simpsons. In it, Homer attends a chilli cook-off and eats a pepper so spicy that it causes him to run screaming to the laughter of the other attendees. As a result, he drinks wax and proceeds to shove a number of these chilis down his throat. This in turn causes him to hallucinate for the rest of the episode. It is essentially a peyote fever dream which features Johnny Cash as the space coyote. For such a trippy episode we of course need a trippy strain. So I am recommending LSD a strain that took its name from the hallucinogenic drug. This strain is cerebral, powerful and psychedelic which makes it perfect for enjoying the weird and wonderful animation in this episode. LSD has a THC level of 25% and is Indica dominant. It is an award winner and will knock the socks off even the most seasoned smoker. LSD has a flowering time of 60 – 65 days and can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. 


A Fish Called Selma 


This episode features the fantastic Troy McClure who you may remember from such episodes as A Streetcar Named Marge, Homer Alone, and Lisa The Vegetarian. In this episode, it comes out that Troy has some peculiar proclivities towards marine life resulting in one of my favourite Simpsons exchanges of all time. 


“I thought you said Troy McClure was dead.”

“No, I said he sleeps with the fishes.” 


In order to deal with the public hearing about his, as he puts it, “sexual abnormality” his agent decides he needs to get married. Of course, he ends up marrying Marge’s sister Selma. This episode is not only bizarre and hilarious but oddly uplifting when Selma decides she wants to find true love instead of bringing a baby into a sham celebrity marriage. I think in order to truly enjoy this episode, and the fantastic Planet of the Apes musical number, we need an uplifting strain. Super Silver Sour Diesel Haze seems like the absolute perfect strain for this episode. It is uplifting, high energy, powerful and stimulating. It is famous for its excellent parentage as well as its deliciously lemony flavour and scent. As may be expected this strain is predominantly Sativa but it does have a nice little splash of Indica in there to round it all out. This strain has a flowering time of 70 – 84 days and can be grown indoors or outdoors. 


Homer At The Bat


Finally let’s squeeze in a real classic, and for many a true turning point in the early Simpsons episodes. This episode brings in a variety of guest stars who are written in so perfectly that you don’t have to know the first thing about baseball to enjoy them. It has a real And Then There Were None vibe as each professional player falls to some bizarre fate, except Darrel Strawberry who is playing Homer’s position. Again I’d recommend something a little whacky to fully enjoy the vaguely nonsensical aspects of this episode. Durban Poison has an energetic and slightly trippy effect that is perfect for bringing out the amazingly weird humour of this episode. This strain has a flowering time of 8 – 9 weeks and can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse.
