I listened to CTRL off an edible once and I literally floated off my couch. I cried seven times. It took me 2 hours to finish the album because I had Broken Clocks on repeat for an hour straight.
+infinity for CTRL off the gummy
Mercurial World by Magdalena Bay is an experience when baked, to say the least
came here to reccomend this album as well. The trio of Follow the Leader, Domino, and Dreamcatching are legendary
When the bass kicks in as soon as Follow The Leader starts uhhhggggghh
Ray of Light by Madonna
i’m actually trying it on shrooms this wednesday. it’s so spiritual
OMG i listen to trance and house music on shrooms and I am lifted to a higher state of life... i need to listen to ROL next time!!!!!!!!!!!
Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves if you want a really relaxed, laidback experience
I was thinking this but then I realized Oh What A World would probably make me cry harder than I ever have
Shrines by Purity Ring. It's actually what got me into PR.
ooo great pick
Utraviolence for me
i remember the first time i ever smoked i listened to UV in full and starting singing Pretty When You Cry out loud and my neighbors probably heard. the song had me in a TRANCE
First 5 / 6 tracks to this are insane
Flipside almost gave a psychosis seizure. It was an otherworldly experience to say the least.
Galore - Oklou
Hyper Romance - Jadu Heart
Forevher - Shura
Mercurial World - Magdalena Bay
These albums just seem to hit the spot whenever I’m smoking… All great albums too
Adore Jadu Heart!
A lot of Shoegaze and Dream Pop sounds absolutely insane when high.
Loveless by my bloody valentine is an album with so many layers and when stoned every single one sounds crazy. Sometimes may be one of the greatest songs while high ever it’s amazing.
Also Heaven Or Las Vegas by the Cocteau Twins feels like you’re standing on the surface of the sun. The album is normally bright, but when you’re high it’s amazing
florence & the machine’s first 2 albums are so rich and vibrant with the grand orchestral sounds and dark fairytale lyrics and incredible vocals. super atmospheric
a lot of twigs’ work (up to & including magdalene) is incredible whilst high. the production and vocals are so haunting and clear, feeling all the textures is really engaging and the emotions are so raw
I’m stoned a lot of the time haha but those are my go-to for atmospheric listening
The psychedelic harp on Ceremonials really hits stoned ears perfectly.
Any of clams casinos instrumentals tapes or Miley Cyrus and her dead petz
You're so cute in your space boots, Space Dude
Came here to say Dead Petz
A Beginner's Mind - Sufjan Stevens
American Head - The Flaming Lips
Stand For Myself - Yola
Lana really does it for me as well.
My personal favorites:
\-Ultraviolence by Lana Del Rey
\-Self-Titled by Beyonce
\-My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West
\-Ray of Light by Madonna
\-The Velvet Rope by Janet Jackson
\-Honey by Robyn
\-Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves (especially if daytime/morning)
\-Anything by Tame Impala (definitely Currents)
\-Wildheart by Miguel
\-House of Balloons mixtape by The Weeknd
Grimes' Halfaxa is heavenly. Lorde's Solar Power is a vibe. And Willow's Ardipithecus is unique.
Anti by Rihanna is even better when high
Beyonce's Homecoming was incredible but I had to turn it off bc once it got to Feelin Myself/Flawless Remix it was so intense I started crying lol
very much looking forward to eating too many edibles and listening to Renaissance
lmaoo literally me except i was crying in the field... feeling myself has a special place in my heart so i pretty much climaxed seeing it performed live
I usually get bored quickly with live albums/documentaries when I’m stoned but I could not turn Homecoming off.
Renaissance is a very nice album to get zooted to. Especially if you're energetic while high, like I am.
Haven’t gotten high in years but I remember once I was smoking with my roommate and I got a weird sudden urge to listen to lucozade by zayn Malik and so I went to my room and listened to it on repeat. Something about it was so magical. I probably had listened to that song twice before that and I’ve probably listened to it once since then. Can’t even remember how the song goes
> I got a weird sudden urge to listen to lucozade by zayn Malik
Holy crap I had the same experience with this song. There's a couple good songs from that album to listen to high.
As a sidenote, the pillowtalk video on acid is an experience.
Reflektor or Neon Bible by Arcade Fire.
Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming by M83.
And Ultraviolence, NFR, or Honeymoon Lana Del Rey
MGMT - Oracular Spectacular is my go to
One of my favorites is Pure Heroine by Lorde.
Lana is great you’re right, I’ve had spiritual experiences listening to NFR stoned.
Oil of Every Pearl by Sophie is fantastic too, although it gets a bit scary at Pretending. Good kind of scary though, like how God is scary.
Omg, I just remembered a post someone made a long time ago about jumpscares in songs and a dude said that he was getting stoned listening to Dealer by Lana and the sudden screams and bawls made him snap out of his journey FAST lmaooo 🤣🤣🤣
all of Lana’s music is just meant for stoners but for me the spiritual experience is with Honeymoon. the album does things to my soul and takes me places, it’s insane. i have synesthesia too so the visuals i get with it are insane yet it’s such a calming listen.
I am stoned right now!

Love this, highly recommend albums with high levels of production and multiple different components. When I get Hugh I slay on my couch with some good speakers blaring many songs but I rec these albums:
Arca - Kick iii, Bjork - Homogenic, St. Vincent - Daddy’s Home, Roisin Murphy - Rosin Machine, and new Beyoncé was also insane too
ARTPOP and anything by Khruangbin
Madonna - confessions on the dancefloor !!!!
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is my go-to when high. I feel like that's the way it was intended to be listened to
I would really like to see a list of this by year, starting at 1965 through to the present day
Solar Power - Lorde.
Perfect vibes for just lying back in the grass on a sunny day baked.
Urban Flora from Galamatias and Alina Baraz is incredible while high
folklore, solar power, ctrl, golden hour, positions, jaguar, charli, ungodly hour, blonde, while we wait, norman fucking rockwell
Number 1 Angel - Charli XCX ep any song by her is good but specifically Dreamer off that EP. I was so high and that song just hit different hearing all the notes beats and chords... miss girl is a hyper pop queen!
Dopesmoker by Sleep will get you transcending.
Also, anything by King Crimson. You'll thank me later.
DJ Sabrina the teenage DJ - Makin’ Magic II
Golden Hour and anything by Tash Sultana
I'm surprised no one has said Motomami?!
[Woody supremacy 😭😭❤️I had an out of body experience please try this](https://music.apple.com/us/album/woody-single/1631377603)
Titanic rising by Weyes Blood and Preacher's Daughter by Ethel Cain, Inbred too.
Magdalene only clicked with me when I was stoned, and after that it’s been one of my favourite albums of all time. Home With You specifically, the outro is so gorgeous.
Others I had a really good experience with are Ray of Light, How I’m Feeling Now and Titanic Rising.
I also think that any song/album you love sounds good/better stoned. It’s going to vary person to person 😊
I prefer hip-hop in such scenarios. Love Travis Scott's Astro world and rodeo.
Dont know if its considered a Pop album, but if youre into Horroresque music then The Weeknd's Kissland is a great choice. There are these layers where you can hear windchimes, subtle screams, distorted vocals that get elevated when youre stoned.
Speak For Yourself by Imogen Heap. ACTUALLY anything by Imogen Heap.
I listened to VHS - Kawai Sprite on the afterglow of shrooms and I remember intricately visualizing the music.
Also traitor and driver’s license off SOUR are INSANE.
Disney’s Fantasia soundtrack.
sling by clairo made me feel so calm and relaxed it was a very pleasant experience
My friend said “Pet Sounds” by Beach Boys is the way to go 🏄♀️ 😎
Honestly I’m high right now and I’m digging Renaissance. The groovy beats sound SO good while high. It’s loud but quiet at the same time and feels luxurious, it’s SO perfect. However when I’m not high the only song I want to listen to is alien superstar. I only really like it when I’m high
Daddy’s Home by St. Vincent
kate bush's aerial. but it was even better high on shrooms at the beach. unmatched, really.
def beyonce's new album. that hits different. SZA & frank ocean's discography. does not matter which era. & kali uchis's discography too. i love my stoned artists
Trip by Jhene Aiko
Once Twice Melody by Beach House
Jhene Aiko’s “Trip” album
Cape God by Allie X
I don't use anymore but Radiohead was always the BEST while stoned... all of the complex pieces of their music just seemed to lock into place while stoned. "Open the Floodgates" and "Free in the Knowledge" from their new side project The Smile album would be particularly nice.
FutureSex / LoveSound
My favorite album to listen to when high is Taylor swift's folklore album
Planet 9 by Rose McGowan
