List Rules Vote up the best movies to watch on LSD.

It's actually not terribly difficult to identify the best documentary movies to watch on LSD. While some documentaries are politically charged, many simply cover obscure and fascinating subject materials that are sure to engage the tripping mind - bonus points if the film is also visually engaging! It's all here for you to peruse. Perhaps you find yourself home after a night out at the club and are looking for something low key and pretty to help you come down. Or maybe you find yourself introspective and want to visit other realities from the comfort of your own couch. 

Whatever you crave, below you'll find a list of documentary films to watch when you're high! Want to see Werner Herzog's journey into a cave containing some of the oldest paintings in human history? Or maybe you'd rather chill out with a couple of episodes of the visually pleasing Planet Earth. All these films contain beautiful scenery from around the world, mind stretching information, and sometimes a bit of both. 

So put down your glow sticks and get ready to relax. Browse the list below and vote up the best movies to watch on LSD.
