After a long, hot summer, the weather is finally starting to cool off. Leaves are turning colors and neighborhoods are beginning to smell like fireplaces all thanks to the changing of the seasons.
To help you indulge in everything that is fall, we’ve come up with a list of our favorite cannabis strains for autumn, each carefully chosen to highlight the beauty of the season.
Child of Afghani landrace strains, Northern Lights is a favorite among many, known for its sweet, earthy flavor (with a hint of spice) and its super relaxing high. Northern Lights is an indica strain that will lull away all pain and help any insomniac sleep sound. Northern Lights is recommended for lazy evenings at home or a night under the stars watching a fire.
This sativa-dominant hybrid is great for anyone needing a pick-me-up. Featuring the pleasant flavors of pine and earth combined with a spicy, woody aroma, Jack Herer causes instant euphoria and may even inspire creativity. This strain is recommended for fall festivals and trips to the pumpkin patch as the high will make you feel motivated to create something spectacular.
Pink Lady features a sweet, piney flavor with hints of Rosemary and lemon. This sativa-dominant hybrid promotes energy which is good for daytime highs involving a stroll through the woods amongst the fallen leaves, but also tends to be rather relaxing when it comes to pain and nausea. For those who would prefer their weed to lull them into a high, pink lady is perfect for them. Just be careful not to consume too much as this is known to produce a “creeper” (slow onset) high that can last for multiple hours.
Headband has a strong peppery flavor on the inhale followed by a subtle pine finish on the exhale. The resulting high is very relaxed and euphoric with a tendency to create pressure behind the eyes and around the head (thus giving Headband its name) so proceed with caution if migraines are an issue. Headband is great for a lazy day watching the game or a pre-Thanksgiving feast toke.
Pepper and pine flavors accompany this sweet, skunk-smelling strain which was made popular thanks its unique, cheesy aroma and powerful head high. Cheese comes on hard and strong which results in a very relaxed, euphoric high and insatiable appetite. Cheese is especially good for entertaining thanks to its clear-headed, sociable high and relaxing body high.
Blackberry Kush is ideal for dessert pairings or evenings at home with a good book. Featuring flavors reminiscent of Blackberry pie and jet fuel, this indica-dominant strain will alleviate pain and lull you to sleep after a long day at work or gathering harvest.
LA Kush is a favorite along the west coast where it first originated. Featuring the subtle flavors of nuts and mint, this California-born hybrid is perfect for reducing stress, improving mood and inspiring creativity. Despite being predominantly indica, LA Kush is a great way to start your morning pain-free without compromising productivity.
With aromas similar to butterscotch and toffee and flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, this is a strain sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Acapulco Gold is great for pain, insomnia or just spacing out to some Netflix.
Blue Dream is a favorite for novice and seasoned smokers alike thanks to its pleasant Berry flavor and relaxing high. Said to work better than many over-the-counter pain medication, this hybrid melts away pain and discomfort and replaces it with a cool-headed cerebral high and full-on body high. Blue Dream has also been known to spark creativity so keep a pad of paper nearby in case your next big idea strikes soon.
Another sweet favorite that will surely have you craving dessert is Cherry Pie, a Durbin Poison and Granddaddy Purp hybrid that is both relaxing and inspiring at the same time. This strain is especially good for social gatherings as it will give everyone a perma-grin and an undeniable need to chit-chat. This strain hits hard and fast, and typically lasts for three hours or more.
It’s time to put away those summer strains because autumn is finally here. If you’d like to experience the beauties of the season through marijuana-shaded glasses, then try one of these 10 best strains for fall.
