Super High Me documents the comedian Doug Benson avoiding alcohol and cannabis for a cleansing period of 30 days , and then smoking and otherwise consuming cannabis every day for 30 days in a row.
Benson said that the conception of the film originated with a joke in his stand-up act, asking, "If there's a movie called Super Size Me about a guy who ate McDonald's every day, why couldn't there be this movie called Super High Me, where I smoke pot every day?" He shared the joke with friend and filmmaker Michael Blieden, who saw potential in producing a film.
The film also includes interviews with marijuana activists, dispensary owners, politicians and patients who are part of the medical marijuana movement.
