Brilliant fall colors have replaced summer greens, seasonal produce overflows from roadside stands, and every possible product is now available in pumpkin spice flavor, from Pop Tarts to dog treats to Jell-O (seriously).
Honestly, most cannabis strains are lovely year-round, but there are a certain few that seem particularly tailor-made to autumnal vibes and the season’s pursuits. Search out one or all of our seven picks below, then get out there and live your best fall life to the fullest.
Aroma and flavor | Berries, dirt, and gasoline—like pulling up in an old pickup truck at a farmers market.
Experience | Joyous and giggly, with a tension-melting body high.
What you need it for | Riding shotgun on a foliage-chasing day drive with your best friends.
Intake | Flower vape.
Aroma and flavor | Fresh-juiced citrus with a spritz of skunk.
Experience | Floats the mind up into clouds of creativity, even as the body basks in a high like autumnal sunshine.
What you need it for | DIYing the greatest Halloween costume of all time.
Intake | A goldilocks dab (carefully scooped to juuust the right size).
Aroma and flavor | Skunky and pungent, but far from unpleasant.
Experience | Begins with a tingling in the head, and slowly spreads down in a wave of warmth to your fingertips and toes.
What you need it for | A crisp, frosty early-morning walk (with or without a pup).
Intake | Hand-rolled joint.
Aroma and flavor | Notes of citrus zest and brown sugar.
What you need it for | Hiking in any (or every) weather.
Intake | Pack of half-gram joints to take on the trail.
Aroma and flavor | Felled logs meet fresh-cut flowers.
Experience | Tricky to find, but even tougher to put down once you’ve got it. The high is pure euphoria, wrapped up in energy and excitement.
What you need it for | An afternoon at the pumpkin patch, preferably complete with hay rides and a really good corn maze.
Intake | Concentrate if you can get it, flower if you can’t.
Aroma and flavor | Tangy tart cherries in pastry crust, with a subtle pop of peppercorn.
Experience | Wedding season may be ending, but Wedding Cake (also known as Pink Cookies) season is just beginning. This rising star strain has GSC and Cherry Pie lineage, which explains how it got all the good happy-uplifting-euphoria genes.
What you need it for | Keeping warm in a fall sweater on a cool afternoon…perhaps with help from a pot of apple cider on the stove?
Intake | Tincture (poured into your cider).
Aroma and flavor | Earthy and mineral.

What you need it for | Your every fall dinner party, from September potlucks to Friendsgiving.
Intake | Load a bowl big enough to share (greens to whoever brought the pumpkin pie).
