Halloween will always be popular among children of all ages. It’s the time of year to see people in strange costumes and houses dripping with fantastic decorations. Sure, Halloween is supposed to be scary, but it’s mostly about treats, not tricks. Most people just want to have fun.
It’s the perfect environment for a little spooky cannabis.
We did a lot of research to find the best weed for this season. Here are the top weed strains we think will boost the Halloween experience for almost any cannabis enthusiast. See if you agree with our choices.
Spooktacular Halloween Weed Strains
Among cannabis connoisseurs, many prefer Sativa at this time of year for its ability to expand the creative mind. A good Sativa blast is sure to foster a finer appreciation for the unusual and bizarre.
But some prefer Indica. They enjoy the mellow, relaxing effect, which might help smooth jump scares for the jittery.
Great weed comes in hybrid strains too. Hybrids may provide a more well-rounded experience for some consumers.
Stepping out of a cloud of apple-scented smoke strides Blissful Wizard. This hybrid runs around 50% Sativa/Indica and offers strong benefits associated with both strains.
Blissful Wizard promotes creativity. It’s euphoric and fosters happiness and laughter, making it a perfect weed for Halloween parties. It can also be very relaxing. With an average THC content of around 34%, Blissful Wizard can cast a strong couch-lock spell. Make sure to have Halloween treats within easy reach.
Another powerful flower with a 50% Sativa/Indica balance, Alien OG has an earthy scent with hints of citrus. With a high-end of 28% THC content, this Halloween weed strain may average less THC than Blissful Wizard, but you probably won’t notice. Aches and pains fade under its alien attack.
Alien OG is a good strain to consume if you plan to sit on the porch and hand out treats. It’s a stony weed, capable of abducting your wits. If you’re handing out full bars, watch out for little goblins coming around twice!
A dark green Indica with around 20% THC content, Dark Devil’s nefarious effects can keep the mangiest demons in line. Its fruity, light diesel taste is somewhat earthy.
While Dark Devil is an Indica, it can work on the mind like a Sativa. It can give users a feeling of heightened perceptions and energy as it relaxes the body. This devil is a soothing and creatively motivating Halloween weed.
Classic Indica effects like couch-lock are possible with Dark Devil. Don’t commit the Sin of Gluttony, or you might get glued in place.
Northern Lights is a classic Indica strain known for heightening perception. It is an established strain with roots that go back to the 1980s. Today its potent genes can be found in dozens of highly regarded hybrids.
In general, all Northern Lights hybrids are good for spooktacular settings. They lend a feeling of relaxation and enhance the senses, qualities you want in a good Halloween weed strain.
Don’t forget Northern Lights is an Indica. Its relaxing qualities won’t help if you have to flee an ax-wielding maniac or find your way out of a corn maze.
Green Crack is a Sativa-dominant Northern Lights hybrid. Its tight green buds are covered with orange hairs and frosted with THC-loaded trichomes.
Green Crack is musky-smelling, with an average THC content of around 17%. It’s a euphoric Halloween weed that positively influences creativity, laughter, and conversations. This weed is a good choice for midday smoking when you don’t want to get bogged down.
This 75-95% Indica dominant hybrid tastes like cereal.
Frankenberry is a perennial favorite for those who can get it this time of year. The buds are tight, ranging in color from purple to dark green, with orange hairs. The aroma is fruity and earthy.
Frankenberry offers a relaxing and soothing smoke with a THC content of 20% or lower, making it mild enough for all-day smoking. A blast or two of this Halloween weed strain will have you thinking of cereal. Three or four hits might have you walking like a monster.
Black Widow is a Brazilian hybrid, 60% Indica and 40% Sativa. It is a potent weed, often used for hash production. THC content can be as high as 28%, giving this spider a powerful psychoactive bite.
The Indica content makes Black Widow a notoriously relaxing smoke. It’s a good Halloween weed for events or tasks where you can sit down, like going on hayrides or monitoring murderous animatronics.
Zombie Kush is an award-winning classic that’s been around for more than a decade. Every year it stumbles forth and looks for brains. If you’re lucky, some will stumble into your neighborhood.
Zombie Kush is an Indica-dominant (80%) hybrid. It is known to be a very relaxing strain. THC content runs an average of 13%, making it suitable for people with low THC tolerance or who are trying weed for the first time. It has a piney, earthy aroma with hints of citrus.
Another 50/50 Sativa/Indica hybrid, Killer Queen is a milder weed with a THC content of 15-16%.
The Sativa in Killer Queen makes this Halloween weed strain energizing. It can fire up creative tendencies, or motivate you for a walk around the block.
Killer Queen’s Indica component soothes and relaxes. This strain offers less danger of couch-lock than many other 50/50 hybrids, but be careful. She can still be a monster.
