Top 12 Cannabis Strains to try during the Fall Season
Oh fall, that wonderful time of year when the leaves turn bright orange and red and scatter the streets with their color. The air is crisp and the wind is starting to blow a little more. It’s time for pumpkins, hot drinks by the fire, and nice big bowl! Now that the weather is cooling down, it is the perfect time to toke up by the fireplace or enjoy a joint with your nearest and dearest. Call me basic, but I’ve done some research and put together the top 12 recommended strains that are perfect for your Fall smoke sessions!
1. Cherry Pie – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
Cherry Pie is a hybrid strain whose parents are the infamous Granddaddy Purple and Durban Poison. The name alone just screams fall, doesn’t it? This beautiful cannabis smells of cherry pie, which is where it got its name. It has red-orange hairs among its purple-tinged leaves adding a little fall color to it all. The flavor is fruity with just a hint of earthiness. It draws upon the indica and sativa elements of each of its parent strains to balance into a harmonious hybrid. It’s the perfect strain to give you an uplifted, optimistic feeling while relieving anxiety. Stress and the winter blues melt away like ice cream on pie. Creativity also sets in with this cannabis, making it great for baking cookies, or pumpkin carving!
2. Tahoe OG Kush – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
This is one of my personal favorites. Tahoe OG Kush is an indica-dominant strain perfect for cold days spent inside. The smell is piney and earthy with just a hint of lemon in it. It’s downright refreshing. The buds are bright green with a frosting of trichomes. The flavor is full pine with a smooth finish. This strain is best smoked on a day you plan on staying home. Its indica-heavy effects will leave you with full-body relaxation. The sativa side also provides a good dose of euphoria to elevate your mood. You’ll be left with tingles in your toes and big dreams from this one. Perfect for cold days spent curled up inside with a book.
3. Jack Frost – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
The very name hearkens to the season changing from warm to cool. Jack Frost is an incredible hybrid. Its parent strains include Jack Herer, White Widow, and Northern Lights (which is on my list as #5). This cannabis gets its name from the excessive frostiness of its buds. It smells of pine and lemon, a fresh smell like after a snowstorm. The effects of Jack Frost are hard-hitting. It’s high in THC, usually testing at around 22%! It’s an energetic strain, providing mental stimulation. This cannabis gives a full body high and a cerebral high leaving you stoney all over. Some say it makes them feel like cuddling! So grab a cozy blanket and go on that hay ride.
4. Monster Cookies – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
Ready to get spooky this halloween? Monster Cookies is a great strain for just that. A cross between Grand Daddy Purple and Girl Scout Cookies, this indica strain is a hard hitter. It has purple and green buds making it look a little monster-like. And the trichomes it’s covered in are like the silver tint to a witch’s hair. Its smell is grapey and earthy true to its Grand Daddy Purple parent. It tastes dank and smooth and the effects are intense. Full body relaxation and even sleep can result from toking up this treasure. So be careful how much you choose to smoke or it might turn you into a zombie. I would recommend this strain for those dark, stormy nights full of horror films and popcorn.
5. White Widow – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
White Widow is a classic strain that has graced the coffee houses of Amsterdam since the early 1990’s. Its name alone inspires some awe: White Widow. Almost like it’s the name of a classic film. It’s a hybrid strain made from a Brazilian sativa landrace and a South Indian indica. Drawing on both parents, the strain packs a creative punch while easing mental stress. The buds are white with a heavy coating of crystal trichomes. Hence its name. It smells of pine and earth and has a little bit of a dank flavor. This is an active strain, one that will make your mind and body feel ready to take on the world! Try it next time the fog from outside goes to your head.
6. Northern Lights – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
There’s nothing like a clear winter night to see the stars. Northern Lights is a wonderful strain with parentage of Afghani and Thai landrace strains. It’s a pure indica, no hybrid here. Its buds are a dark green color with occasional purple hues and a constellation-like splattering of crystals. Northern Lights is best used at night due to its relaxing qualities. Patients will feel completely at ease in both mind and body. It can be used to combat restlessness and fend off the evening chills. It’s the perfect strain for catching some much needed hibernation. Try it next time you’re wrapped up in bed and ready to take off to dreamland.
7. Dutch Treat – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
Dutch Treat is another treasure from the coffee houses of Amsterdam. It’s a classic strain you can find almost anywhere. Considered a hybrid, it has mostly sativa qualities and is quite cerebral. The buds are bright green and dense with a fair amount of yummy trichomes. This strain of cannabis smells of fruit and a hint of pine. Its smoke is sweet and not overly harsh on the inhale. Taking a hit is followed by a rush of euphoric and optimistic feelings that leave you smiling and content. It’s a great pain reliever, one that won’t make you overly sleepy or foggy. Which is perfect for those winter-time aches. It’s uplifting qualities will also help if you find yourself missing sunnier days.
8. Banana Kush – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
Is there anything like fresh baked banana bread in the fall? I think not! Well this season try the weed strain equivalent. Banana Kush is not only great cannabis, it also smells and tastes faintly of banana bread. Yum! A cross of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze, it’s an indica-dominant hybrid. Dark green and sticky, the buds of Banana Kush are beautiful to behold. It smells, as I mentioned, of banana bread and even tastes a bit like it! Not only is it delicious, it will lift your mood better that any baked good ever could. This strain is an ultimate giggle producer, prepared to battle blues and put some pep in your step. So next holiday party have yourself a little Banana Kush beforehand. You’ll be happy you did!
9. Snowcap – Top Marijuana Strains For Fall
Snowcap is a sativa-dominant hybrid cross between Humboldt Snow and an unnamed haze. It’s covered in a white dusting of trichomes, which might be a reason for its lovely name.

On Halloween night how could you smoke anything but Ghost OG? This phenotype of OG Kush is scary good. It’s a balanced hybrid meaning it has an even amount of indica and sativa effects. A high-functioning strain, this one won’t weigh you down. You’ll feel light as a wraith! Ghost OG gives a mild physical relaxation, but nothing that will knock you out for the night.
