Fall is literally around the corner! Soon, the leaves will change colors, the pumpkin patches and similar lattes will become abundant, and granny’s homemade apple cider will fill the house with love and seasonal joy. For cannabis consumers, this is the season to prepare the fresh new harvest yielded from ‘Croptober.’ This means there will be freshly-picked cannabis for the smoking (not literally, of course.) Here are five strains everyone should experience this Fall:
First up this Fall is Blue Hawaiian. This strain is a fusion of the intense Blueberry and legendary Hawaiian Sativa. This fusion has yielded a strain that boasts 17% THC per gram. Upon inhalation, this strain gives off a fruity aroma thanks to the Blueberry featuring a citrus (or even a banana) undertone. Consumers praise Blue Hawaiian for its calming and mildly energizing high. If you are in search of a cozy strain that snuggles up with this Fall, Blue Hawaiian may be the answer.
Sour Diesel is a strain that quite frankly does not need an introduction but definitely deserves it. The beginnings for Sour Diesel are a bit murky. However, most cannabis researchers think Sour Diesel is the offspring of Super Skunk &Chemdawg 1991. This cozy strain brings an intense 20% THC. Sour Diesel provides an aroma extremely similar to diesel gas and pine-like undertones. This is how the strain gained its moniker. When consuming Sour Diesel, this strain provides a litany of effects. This strain offers uplifting cerebral effects as well as powerful body effects. This is the kind of balance that is needed for those crispy apple cider nights.
Another strain you ought to enjoy this Fall is Jamaican Dream. This strain is a cannabis Sativa strain that is known for its ability to unload overwhelming cerebral and euphoric effects. Jamaican Dream is bred using ancient yet outstanding Jamaican agricultural techniques. This process creates buds that are full of citrus, cinnamon notes, and tropical flavors. The terpene profile would pair reasonably well with a cup of hot chocolate or apple cider aside from the firepit. Additionally, this Cannabis Sativa-dominant strain can provide creativity on those Autumn days. Be sure to roll up some Jamaican Dream as soon as the leaves begin to change colors!
We know: we come back to this strain a lot. We can’t help it; Chocolope is a staff favorite and pairs perfect with hayride nights. Amidst the cannabis boom of the 2000s, this strain came to rise. Chocolope is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain that is a fusion of the strains Chocolate Thai and Cannalope Haze. When analyzing the aroma of Chocolope, it reveals earthy and sweet tones. Smokers of Chocolope believe that the strain often gives off a fragrance similar to that of a freshly brewed cup of hot chocolate. Thanks to its genetics, this strain produces a respectable amount of THCV. This is one of the cannabinoids responsible for uplifting mood as well as providing substantial amounts of energy. Consider bowling up some Chocolope the next time you brew that big, cozy mug of hot chocolate with the mini marshmallows stuffed to the edge.
Super Lemon Haze
Closing out the strains to try this Fall is the mythic strain Super Lemon Haze. This Sativa-dominant hybrid is a cross between Lemon Skunk and the mysterious Sativa Super Silver Haze. The smell associated with Super Lemon Haze is comparable to that is a basket of freshly-picked lemons. Super Lemon Haze also hosts minor sweet undertones. This strain might not replace Granny’s homemade cider, but it is surely worth a bowl or two this Fall!
