Leafly Staff Picks: Cannabis Strains and Products for Cozy Fall Days
Fall is here, and many of us are waving goodbye to summer with smiling, pumpkin spice-stained faces stuffed into scarves. The new season not only inspires a change in wardrobe, but often a change in our stash boxes. These cannabis strains and products are known to fuel the cozy feels as the days get darker, leaves turn, and rain speckles the sidewalks outside. So load up, snuggle up, and smoke up, because fall is finally here.
1. Jack Herer
Sativa-dominant Jack Herer is a strain for all seasons, but this sweet, pine-scented bud is especially well-suited for autumn. The warm, spicy flavor fills the body with a comfy, cozy sensation throughout every limb while wrapping the mind in a blissful blanket. And for those mourning the loss of long summer days, Jack Herer offers a comforting hand to help pull you from low moods.
2. Infused Syrups
What’s better than a hot drink on a windy fall morning? Cannabis-infused hot drinks, obviously. Infused syrups are hitting the market with ferocity, blessing our mugs with the gift of enhanced flavor and effect. Add Craft Elixirs’ CBD Ginger to your green tea for feelings of clean relaxation that lets you stay productive and stress-free, or find an infused maple syrup to add to your morning latte. Or, simply make infused syrup yourself by following this recipe.
3. Agent Orange
With an invigorating citrus flavor that warms both mind and body, Agent Orange is a versatile hybrid strain that perfectly accompanies hobbies both relaxing and active. Take Agent Orange out on an autumn hike and watch as its euphoric veil enhances the red, yellow, and orange colors around you. Puff on this one while stuck inside on a rainy day, giving yourself permission to relax with some video games or a new show. Agent Orange also brings out the best flavors in chai tea, a hot toddy, or a cinnamon hot chocolate.
4. Pre-Rolled Joints
Few pleasures match the feeling of walking through an orange-hued forest with a joint in-hand. Whether you never learned how to roll a joint or feel pressured to spend every available second appreciating the fleeting colors of fall, pre-rolls make a convenient mobile choice. Numerous pre-roll options await you, but my favorite remains the Saints variety pack from Seattle Green Bud. (More Leafly staff favorites can be found here.)
5. Vanilla Kush
Vanilla Kush is a cozy indica staple that delivers autumn vibes with a toasty vanilla flavor that sits underneath warm, earthy overtones. Bringing a gentle euphoric hum to the mind while letting muscles sink like dead weight into blankets, use this indica to cozy up with a book or movie, or let it guide you into a well-deserved nap on a rainy weekend.
6. Infused Bath Bombs
As temperatures drop outside, the urge to dip into a steaming bathtub gets hard to fight. Light a few candles, turn on some relaxing music, and sink into a hot spring sizzling with cannabis. You can take a lovely cannabis-infused bath thanks to magical bath soaks like those from Cannabis Basics, Mary Jane’s Medicinals, and other favorites. Does your local dispensary not carry bath products? Just make your own bath bombs with this recipe.
