Halloween is right around the corner. Once again, it’s crept up on us (sneaky-beaky-like).
Cannabis won’t have you seeing ghosts, but you might feel levitated. No zombies around, but couchlock sure can make you seem like one. Dressed-up princesses and dragons might make an appearance at your door, but you’ll be shooting fire out of your mouth with a joint.
While you might be stressing about your Halloween costume or filling your pantry with candy for trick and treating, there’s one thing we here at Delta Munchies have under control: the best strains for the season.
When it comes to finding your favorite strains, you might already have some in mind. Still, why not widen your horizons?
Some like them as sweet as mango, others prefer skunky strains, some are into the spicy, and others into the creamy. Whatever you prefer, we suggest celebrating one of our favorite festivities with one of these spooky strains.
Scary Cherry OG Strain
We’re starting off strong with Scary Cherry OG. This indica-dominant hybrid boasts 60% indica and 40% sativa, giving you a nice balance between relaxation and energy with a little more emphasis on the calm feeling you’re looking for.
This strain is the lovechild of Cherry Sauce and Night Terror OG, which are Halloween-y strains in their own right.
The scent is like walking into a wooded forest with hints of pine, herbs, and spices. This might be because the main terpene is pinene.
Your mind will be racing with euphoria, while your body sinks into itself to allow yourself to relax physically and go into your memory palace. After a while, you’ll feel relaxed through and through, ready to go trick and treating.
Ghost Train Haze Strain
For hardcore sativa lovers, the train is arriving at the station. Ghost Train Haze is the result of a cross between Ghost OG and Neville’s Wreck, and it certainly makes you feel like you’ve been hit by a train.
One of the most hard-hitting sativas out there, Ghost Train Haze will knock out any bad thoughts and replace them with a hefty dose of the munchies, which isn’t bad considering how much Halloween candy you probably have laying around.
For those prone to anxiety and paranoia – consider trying a less potent sativa, a hybrid, or an indica. For those who want a super-boost of energy and euphoria, take the train to wonderland with this terpene-packed strain.
Spooky Sunset Strain
We’re just getting started with the spookiness. Say hello to Spooky Sunset, another indica-dominant hybrid that’s a cross between Ghost OG and Sunset Sherbet.
Nighttime is when the paranormal comes out to play, and this strain is best for those late hours. It’ll turn your mysterious brain into mush and let your skeleton take a day off. For those insomniacs out there, Spooky Sunset is the way to go.
The aroma is reminiscent of a warm autumn bonfire, with pine and skunk and just a hint of fruity honey and citrus.
Spooky Sunset is packed with the terpene myrcene, which will undoubtedly have you feeling like a ghost levitating through the house and give your body and mind a moment to disconnect and just relax.
Jack the Ripper Strain
Do true crime documentaries lull you to sleep and give you a sense of peace? First off, there’s a little psycho in you, and we like that.
Secondly, we have an inkling that you’ll love Jack the Ripper. This sativa-dominant strain is visually intense, making it a great option for appreciating all the creative costumes you’ll be seeing at your Halloween party or showing up at your door begging for treats.
You’ll feel energized and uplifted, with creativity at a high and all problems forgotten in the dust. The terpinolene has a fascinating complex aroma and taste that compares to no other and will have you pondering what exactly it is.
Witches Weed Strain
If you’re really in the mood to be put under a spell – Witches Weed will do it for you.
Although sativa-dominant, this witchy strain also has a relaxing effect, and users report a physical and mental buzz that’ll put you at ease but have you on your feet.
What’s better than getting on a broomstick and heading into the night sky? Flying high after a joint of Witches Weed, duh.
Scary Larry Strain
Scary Larry isn’t actually scary – he’s a whole lot of fun!
This strain is known by many names, most commonly Larry OG. But for our purposes, let’s stick to Scary Larry.
This strain is a member of the famous ocean-grown strain family, hailing from the west coast and gaining popularity everywhere.
This well-balanced hybrid will give your mind and body a buzz, but still, allow you to be social and productive.
You’ll feel creative enough to finally put together your Halloween costume and probably come down with a case of the munchies (good thing Halloween candy is everywhere, huh?).
It wouldn’t really be a Halloween strain without mentioning one of the world’s most famous spooky characters: Frankenstein’s monster.
The Frankenstein strain has long been a favorite for indica-lovers, due to its potency and effectiveness at lulling you to sleep and putting you in a deep state of relaxation.
Although this might not be the strain you’ll want to reach for if you’ve got stuff to get done, it’s a great option for horror movie marathons and ordering in your favorite food. Not for the faint of heart, this indica will give you that famous “couchlock.”
Kandy Kush Strain
If your favorite thing about Halloween is the abundance of sweet treats, Kandy Kush is the way to go.
This well-balanced hybrid combines two of California’s classic strains: OG Kush and Trainwreck.
As the name suggests, the aroma and flavor are reminiscent of sweet childhood nostalgia. Think candy corn and red licorice with a touch of citrus.
