Time to get spooky! With Halloween fast approaching, there are various ways to celebrate. From watching a marathon of horror movies to going to parties, cannabis enthusiasts are excited to elevate whichever experience. However, you want to choose the right strains when shopping for cannabis flowers. After all, you want to have a good time and no frights this Halloween from your ganja. Check out these top four strains to see which suits your Halloween plans the best!
There is a reason why this strain is aptly named Zombie Kush! A few puffs of this indica strain will have you feeling like the walking dead. Don’t expect to do much if you go with this strain! You will certainly feel at ease that nothing will spook you, but you can expect it will have you longing for your bed. Avoid this strain if you plan on spending a long time at a Halloween party because it’s guaranteed to make you want to leave early – unless that’s what you want!
Since it’s a Kush strain, you can expect to inhale a blend of pine, earth, and peppered florals with some citrus notes from its smoke. If you plan on getting this strain, you can get the most out of it by having a more low-key Halloween. A simple night of snacks alongside watching lots of horror movies is the perfect way to enjoy Zombie Kush.
Do you still want to be among the living when you toke next? If so, you can find it with Jack the Ripper! Instead of becoming a couch potato like with Zombie Kush’s indica dominance, this strain brings more balance as a hybrid between sativa and indica. This strain can hit the sweet spot for the right amount of CBD and THC levels, as it’s known to have a calming effect and bring feelings of euphoria and focus. It’s the perfect strain if you will be out and about on Halloween night.
Get the most out of it by having a smoke session before a haunted house or even a Halloween campfire. From its makeup, it will keep you active and energetic during a haunted house, which will have you laughing and having a good time instead of screaming in terror from paranoia like some sativa strains. If enjoyed among friends swapping scary campfire stories, you can expect a distinct lemon taste with notes of pine and citrus to complement the atmosphere. Despite the murderous name, this strain brings an all-around good experience!
Not everyone has great experiences with strains with high THC. It’s an understandable concern to avoid inducing anxiety or paranoia within themselves by smoking certain cannabis flowers. Thankfully, there is a strain that will feel good without frightening you this Halloween. That strain is Painkiller XL. Like Jack the Ripper, this strain is a more sativa-dominant hybrid and brings uplifting and euphoric effects.
However, the profile for Painkiller XL is a lot more balanced than Jack the Ripper. How so? Despite being 75% sativa and 25% indica, it has an equal ratio of 9% for CBD and THC. Unlike Jack the Ripper, this strain isn’t as earthy. On the contrary, Painkiller XL has a fruity taste with a hint of lemon. It will make whatever Halloween party sweeter.
Some assume you can’t have a good time on Halloween without getting high. Contrary to that, you don’t need to have cannabis flowers with high THC to enjoy yourself. You can still feel good even with a high CBD content strain. A strain that perfectly encapsulates that is Harlequin. As a sativa dominant strain, you get the best of both worlds of having a clear mind while receiving energetic and uplifting effects.
You don’t have to worry about any onset of paranoia, and it won’t keep you sedated to the point where you will never leave your couch. Beyond how it keeps a good vibe, Harlequin has a great taste to it as well. A smoke session with this strain will bring up a fairly diverse flavour profile of earthy musk to sweet mango.
It’s a strain that will ensure you have a great night out on Halloween, as it’s sure to please anyone – from veteran stoners to new cannabis smokers. In this case, Harlequin is a rather solid choice for whatever Halloween activities you might have planned – whether you go to a house party or an event. However, you may want to keep hydrated at some point in the night since it can induce some cottonmouth.
There is so much you can do on Halloween. Hopefully, this list of strains makes it easier to find the right one for whatever you choose to get up to on Halloween night!
