The fall weather is upon us, and what better way to spend a crisp autumn afternoon than puffing on a joint of your favorite seasonal strain? Oh, you didn’t realize there was such a thing as a “seasonal” strain? Well, much like a refreshing Oktoberfest lager, there are several different high-quality cannabis strains that are perfect to smoke in the cool months of autumn. So put the pumpkin spice lattes down for just a second and come check out the top 1o strains to smoke this fall.
10. Blue Dream
There is no better way to kick off this list then with a staple strain of every cannabis enthusiast: Blue Dream.
Blue Dream is a sativa-dominant hybrid that has proven to be one of the most popular strains amongst the West Coast. A cross between Blueberry, an indica, and Haze, a sativa, Blue Dream invigorates the user with a cerebral high, while also providing a relaxed, indica-induced body high.
Smoking some Blue Dream is the perfect way to relax during the cozy autumn weather, while also giving you the energy to go out and experience the abundance of readily-available fall activities. Apple picking will never be the same again.
9. Jack Frost
As the name suggests, Jack Frost is a perfect strain as the cold weather moves in and things start getting a little frosty. A descendant of Jack Herer, this strain will give you great-tasting buds and will produce energizing, uplifting and inspiring cerebral highs. And with frosty, trichome-covered flowers, you know Jack Frost packs a punch.
8. Northern Lights
Northern Lights is another staple among serious cannabis heads, and it also happens to be one of the dankest strains to smoke during in the early stages of fall weather.
This strain provides its users with a super-relaxing high and is great to smoke on a lazy autumn evening. It contains an earthy flavor with just a hint of spice that will most certainly remind you of the fall, no matter what time of year you’re smoking it.
7. Tahoe O.G.
Tahoe O.G. might not be as well-known as those first two strains, but it’s nonetheless a great strain for relaxing at home or outdoors.
The strain is a cross between OG Kush and SFV OG and provides its users with a relaxing, body high perfect for the fall weather. Once you light up some Tahoe and take a whiff of its spicy, citrusy scent, you’ll instantly understand why this strain made the cut for our top autumn strains.
Ewok, the winner of the 2013 Cannabis Cup for Best Hybrid, provides the perfect blend of a euphoric head buzz, and an easy-going body high. All of this makes it one of the most perfect strains to smoke this fall.
After smoking some Ewok, you’ll initially experience a concentrated cerebral high, before slowly transitioning into a lazier, couch high. Take a few hits, go outside and rake some leaves, then come back inside and enjoy the tail end of your high with some serious R&R.
5. Jack Herer
Jack Herer is a sativa-dominant hybrid that is sure to spark some creativity. You’ll receive a euphoric head-high after smoking this one, and it’s a great pick-me-up for those who like to stay active in the cool fall weather.
It’s also great to smoke before curling up with a great book or finally getting around to writing that short story of yours. The spicy, woody aroma is also certain to remind the user of the crisp fall weather, so why not take a few puffs when the leaves turn?
4. Blackberry Kush
Blackberry Kush is another indica-dominant strain that is perfect for the cozy autumn weather. A cross between Afghani and the classic Blackberry strains, this kush will have you on your tush.
It is sure to provide users with an intense body high, and most likely a case of the munchies. So if you’re looking for something to smoke before chowing down on some Thanksgiving leftovers, Blackberry Kush should be a no-brainer.
3. Maple Leaf Indica
Another strain originating from the Afghani line, Maple Leaf Indica can be considered one of the best strains to smoke this fall. The effects of Maple Leaf Indica create a calming body buzz, perfect for hanging out and watching a movie, or just listening to some music.
2. Jack Skellington
This strain is named after our favorite Halloween Town hero, Jack Skellington. What better way to celebrate his legacy than by smoking the bud that was named in his honor?
A mix between Killer Queen and Jack The Ripper, Jack Skellington induces a euphoric, yet calming high in the user. The strain is also known to reduce anxiety and stress, and even treat mood disorders.
So if that seasonal depression starts creeping up on you early this yer, smoke some Jack Skellington to embrace the changing of the leaves.
Cookies—formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies—is one of the most popular hybrids on the market and is a great way to usher in the autumn weather. A cross between Durban Poison and O.G. Kush, Cookies will give the user a strong sense of euphoria, while also providing a psychedelic body high.
This makes it perfect for going out for a classic fall activity like pumpkin picking or just relaxing at home eating an entire box of Girl Scout cookies (which also happen to go on sale in the fall). However you do it, this is definitely one of the best strains to smoke this fall.
