Super High Me


Super High Me is a documentary featuring comedian Doug Benson. Benson documents his consumption of cannabis for 30 days. Before experimenting, Benson goes through a cleansing process and undergoes a series of medical tests prior to and after smoking marijuana for 30 days. Benson interviews various doctors, medical marijuana activists, patients, politicians, and owners of medical marijuana dispensaries to weigh the pros and cons of marijuana. Benson then begins to take note of various occurrences from both his month of sobriety and his month of being constantly high.

Among these experiments, Benson took the SATs, a Psychic ESP test, and recorded his weight and sperm count. While sober, he lost two pounds, scored a 980 out of 1600 on the SAT’s, one out of 25 in the Psychic ESP test, and had a sperm count of 21 million per milliliter. Some of these numbers changed after Benson smoked marijuana for 30 consecutive days. After taking the same tests, Benson’s SAT score increased to 1030. While his verbal score appeared to have improved, the score on the mathematical aspect of the SATs was reduced.

In the ESP test, Benson scores seven out of 25. Contrary to claims that marijuana reduces sperm count, Benson’s sperm count increased to 32 million per milliliter. Benson’s greatest change was his weight. During his “high” month, Benson managed to gain a total of eight pounds. Benson believed that after his 30 day experiment, he would perhaps be tired of smoking marijuana continuously.

Instead, he decided to continue smoking on a casual basis. Benson’s physicians concluded that the effects of Benson’s health while smoking marijuana were inconsequential.

Super High Me was originated by a joke Benson made during a stand-up routine. The movie is based on Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me”, which documents Spurlock eating nothing but McDonald’s for 30 consecutive days.
