Spooky season is upon us! It’s finally that time of the year when we get into the act of putting up the scariest performance and costumes. The holiday is filled with lots of smoke, candies, and chocolate, with plenty of opportunities for you to indulge in the wild side of the holiday. If you're up for it – and we know you are – here are some of the best Halloween weed strains to indulge in this creepy season.

We have to tell you, though, not everyone reacts to weed in the same way. How your body reacts to weed is largely dependent on your endocannabinoid system, and no two systems are the same. 

Halloween Weed Strains

Zombie OG

Let's start things off with this aptly named strain. No, it won't transform you into a flesh-eating undead, but with a THC content of 17%, this very potent indica is just the right spooky strain to get into the spirit of the season. This cross between OG Kush and Blackberry has an earthy aroma accompanied by a sleepy effect. Due to its strong sedative effects, you will be too calm and relaxed to do any frenzied zombie work. Watch out for the munchies: this is where your zombie skills come in handy when you hit the kitchen in search of food. It's best to have this at night after a day of Halloween festivities. 

Phantom OG

Hit this strain if you want to make the meanest, baddest Halloween costumes and props on the block. Its dominant characteristics are heightened energy and creativity, followed by a gradual descent into relaxation and sleepiness. With that creative burst of energy, you'll be flowing with inspiration for Halloween ideas. Just like the name, this one will make you feel like a phantom, light and weightless, as you glide all over the place in a euphoric haze. At first, you will feel a euphoria that will induce a dreamy state of mind and fixated concentration. Over time, euphoria will fade into relaxation and sleepiness. Its aroma is a rich blend of pine and lemon with subtle accents of menthol. Users have reported it is effective for helping with insomnia, pain, loss of appetite, and arthritis.

Ghost Train Haze 

Fasten your seat belts and brace yourselves; Halloween is about to get wild! Ghost Train Haze is a cross between Ghost OG and Neville's Wreck. This spooky strain delivers a potent THC dose of 18% and has been used to help with pain, depression, and loss of appetite. It is sure to lift whatever clouds are hanging about and free up your mind to engage in the Halloween fun carousel. A word of caution though, go easy on this one if you're a beginner or have a low tolerance. 

Jack The Ripper

This strain is a sativa-indica hybrid, but its sativa parent dominates its characteristics. Most users prefer it because it can deliver a heady dose of euphoria without the manic energy characteristic of sativa strains. This strain is a cross of a clone of Jack's Cleaner and a male variation of Space Queen known as Space Dude. It can help treat depression, anorexia, stress, and chronic pain. Its effects include euphoria, calm, and focus. It has a distinct lemon taste with notes of pine and citrus.

Monster Cookies

Surprise! Girl Scout Cookies and Granddaddy Purple had a baby: Monster Cookies. If you want a less exuberant and more chilled-out Halloween experience, this is the spooky strain for you. Its indica effects deliver a high that relaxes the mind and body and will leave you zoned out. It gets its aroma from its parent, granddaddy purple, top notes of grape and berry. It has been used to treat muscle spasms, chronic pain, and nausea.

Hell Fire OG

Don't mind the name; this spooky strain is more likely to pull you heavenwards. With an average THC content of 20%, it hits hard and fast. It was first grown in California, a cross product between the indica SFV OG Kush and the hybrid OG Kush. Given its high THC levels and the euphoria it comes with, it is a favorite of veterans seeking that high top note. Its aroma is reminiscent of that signature OG smell of lemon diesel and earthy spice. People turn to this strain to relieve stress, pain, and depression.

Halloween Weed Strains

Death Star

Bred from a potent cross of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel, this strain packs more punch than its indica ancestry suggests. At first, the effects set in slowly, like finding a landing spot for its starship in your mind. With time, you'll enter a state of relaxed euphoria where all the troubles in your mind float away, leaving you in the soothing cuddles of the Death star. The aroma is a pungent skunky sweet smell. It helps relieve pain, anxiety, and stress.


Your Halloween weed plans are not complete without this sedative, hunger-inducing, 80%-indica strain. Frankenstein's potent THC levels average between 18%-22%, and it delivers a high that will leave you feeling relaxed, happy, and sleepy. The deep relaxation it induces means you'll be unlikely to be on monster duties on Halloween; you'll prefer the heady company of your mind. It smells like citrus and mangoes and helps with stress, pain, and anxiety.

Candy Kush

Whether you're tricking or treating, Candy Kush is a veritable member of the Halloween weed gang. It is a balanced hybrid of OG Kush, and Trainwreck and its effects can swing between sativa or indica depending on how much you consume and how you consume it. People know of Candy Kush for its legendary munchies; watch this one to make sure it doesn't transform you into a ravenous zombie raising the kitchen in search of a bite. The aroma is subtle, sweet, and sugary, and it will help with stress relief, pain and anxiety.
