There are two kinds of autumn people. The first are those who love going out to enjoy the cooler weather and fall season colors. The second are those who love to stay in and bask in the warmth (and perhaps indulge in a cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate).
If you’re more of the latter, you probably have your essentials ready to go: a sweater, maybe a scarf, your worn-in sweatpants, a soft pair of socks, and fluffy blankets, just to name a few. If you want to up the ante, you can always get in touch with your trusted marijuana dispensary for quality buds that make you feel warm and relaxed. Here are some strains you can try for chillin’ at home this fall:
Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze or SLH is a high-THC strain that will transport you back to the early days of summer. From its citrusy aroma to its potent effects, one puff of a Super Lemon Haze joint will make you feel warm and happy for hours.
This award-winning flower, which is a cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze, also has a tart and mildly sweet taste. Coupled with its pleasant aroma, SLH is guaranteed to improve your mood, wash away pain, and even whet your appetite. If you’re the type who loves movie nights or gaming sessions with friends, SLH should definitely be a mainstay in your stash.
Are you the type to feel gloomy when the weather’s cold? Get your positive vibes back with a dose of Maui Wowie! Perhaps because it’s grown in the rich volcanic soil of Maui, Hawaii, Maui Wowie has the zesty, tropical aroma of pineapples and citrus. This strain also gives you a huge blast of energy, which is perfect for house parties; frequent users also note that it increases creativity.
What’s great about Maui Wowie (also sometimes spelled Waui) is that it has about 8% indica in its profile. Thus, you can also enjoy benefits such as pain relief and a boost in your appetite.
Tahoe OG Kush
Tahoe OG Kush is one of the OG stay-at-home strains. It’s strong, fast-acting, and refreshing, giving you a full-body high that makes you feel you’re wrapped in a soft, thick blanket. If your jam during autumn is staying in and curling up in your bed for some sleep, Tahoe OG Kush is the perfect companion.
When it comes to taste, Tahoe OG Kush is earthy with hints of pine, slightly lemony, and reminiscent of rain. It’s definitely one of those “atmospheric” strains that’s great for setting the ambience and evoking certain moods, like the simple comfort of home.
A hybrid OG Kush and Banana Kush, Banana OG boasts a high THC level of up to 25%. With a large enough dose, you’ll definitely feel relaxed and euphoric enough to make you flop down onto your bed and sleep for hours. The sweet smell of ripe bananas might make you peckish, though, so make sure to time your consumption to make the most of its effects.
Banana OG is also great if you’re feeling the autumn (or winter) blues. The key is to get your dosage right so you’ll get a mellow buzz that relaxes your body but keeps your mind alert. This combination of effects is great for combating stress, anxiety, and depression.
Jack Herer, also called JH or Premium Jack, is a popular all-season strain. What makes it excellent during the fall is that it can counteract the chilly, lethargic weather with warm, clear-headed relaxation. It used to be mainly a medical-grade variant, but JH has since become one of the most well-known cultivars around the world.
Scent-wise, Jack Herer is a definite delight. It starts with floral notes and hints of citrus, with a touch of spiciness. When smoked, the flowers give off a sage-y herbal aroma. The lingering smell is also quite pleasant, similar to pepper-y but floral potpourri.
For the perfect balance of relaxation and euphoria, you can get your cannabis kick from Sour Tsunami. It’s a hybrid with high sativa content, but with enough indica in it to give you a buzz. It’s also a great solution for stress and insomnia; if you want a good night’s sleep without being couch-locked, Sour Tsunami is a good bet.
When it comes to aroma and flavor, Sour Tsunami shares characteristics of its parents: Sour Diesel and NYC Diesel. Expect to get hints of earthiness, with bitter-sour diesel notes and a tiny bit of sweetness. It’s an odd combination that somehow works to make you feel happy and comforted!
Finally, there’s Burkle. This powerful indica-dominant strain is the perfect companion for when you’re alone and want to sleep the day away. Burkle has a full-body effect as well as a pleasant taste: earthy peppermint, spicy licorice, and hints of berry. When you take a puff of Burkle, you’re guaranteed to have a lazy, warm day of relaxing and forgetting about stress.
To be honest, there doesn’t need to be a special occasion or season to use cannabis. That said, there are certain strains that are more suited for different kinds of weather. Try these above-mentioned strains this fall for that warm feelings and happy vibes all throughout the fall and beyond.
