Fall is finally here, and it's arrived in typical fashion with stunning sights and periodically poor weather. Smoke these strains to invite some euphoria and relaxation into your autumn.

Can you feel it? That crisp, refreshing feeling in the air? That rich, earthy smell? The sound of dry leaves crunching underfoot? Autumn is here. The season when life begins to retreat and prepare for winter dormancy. It’s perhaps one of the more beautiful seasons. The sun stays low in the sky, igniting everything with a golden glow. The sunsets occur earlier, but man are they beautiful. It’s for these reasons, and countless others, that fall is such an amazing season to enjoy cannabis.

Whether you plan to smoke out in nature among the autumnal colours or indoors cuddled up next to the fireplace, these 10 cannabis strains are some of the best varieties to blaze during fall.

1. Monster Zkittlez By Zamnesia Seeds

Monster Zkittles (Zamnesia Seeds)

The flowers of Monster Zkittlez create a complex terpene profile that is responsible for the fruity and sweet flavours that rush across the taste buds when smoked. These gorgeous tastes can be harnessed in the kitchen to give extracts and edibles a delectable kick. What makes this lady so ideal for fall is her soothing and warming high.

Fuelled by indica genetics and an immense THC level of 22.5%, the high of Monster Zkittlez is snug and stoning—perfect for blazing whilst wrapped in blankets next to the fireplace. Indoor plants grow to a height of 90–150cm and pump out a good yield of up to 600g/m². Plants grown outdoors max out at a taller height of 190cm and produce 500–600g/plant.

2. Purple Punch By Barney's Farm

 Purple Punch (Barney's Farm)

Purple Punch is another spectacular autumn strain. This almost-pure indica contains 90% indica genetics and an astronomical THC level of 25%. This combo is enough to exert a stoning high that sends a wave of comfort and ease across the entire body.

Her delightful tastes and scents of apple pie and cherries just scream autumn. Her mature flowers boast shades of dark green, orange, purple, and yellow. This strain rewards growers with massive yields of up to 700g/m² indoors and 2kg/plant outdoors.

3. Ginger Punch Auto By Kannabia


Earthy and fruity tastes and a soothing body high that feels like a massage: Ginger Punch Auto is an excellent strain for the fall season. As autumn sets in, the change of seasons is exciting, but eventually the shorter days and colder weather can take their toll. Blaze up a joint or bowl of Ginger Punch Auto to boost the mood and take the edge off any low points.

Her rich flavour also makes a great addition to medicated pumpkin pie to ensure a long and restful night’s sleep. This easy-to-grow autoflower maintains a small size both indoors and outdoors, and has a short life cycle of 65 days. Indoor plants yield approximately 400g/m², while a single specimen grown under the open sky will yield up to 200g.

4. Royal Gorilla By Royal Queen Seeds

Royal Gorilla (Royal Queen Seeds)

Royal Gorilla is an outrageously potent, award-winning strain that harnesses the legendary genetic combo of Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel. This beast produces a seemingly impossible THC level of 27% and features a perfect split between indica and sativa. This means she can be enjoyed during a wake and bake on a chilly yet refreshing autumn morning, or during the evening next to a bonfire while gazing at the stars.

Her powerful high is augmented by tastes and scents of lemon and pine. Royal Gorilla is a productive strain. Indoors, she grows to a height of 90–160cm and yields up to 550g/m². Plants grown outdoors reach up to 170cm, and are each capable of delivering up to 600g come harvest time.

5. Kukulkan By Pyramid Seeds

Kukulkan (Pyramid Seeds)

If you were to ask a group of people what they believe the flavours of fall to be, it’s highly likely that at least some of them would say maple syrup—probably the Canucks, eh? The sweet, sugary, and rich tastes of this gooey substance are precisely the flavours produced by Kukulkan.

If you’re going to craft any sweet edibles this fall, make sure to infuse your cannabutter with the flowers of this strain. Not only do they taste great, but they provide a THC content of 20%. Kukulkan reaches a medium height both indoors and outdoors. Indoor plants will yield around 550g/m²; however, Kukulkan reaches her full potential outdoors, yielding up to 2kg/plant.

6. Key Lime Pie × Do-Si-Dos By Philosopher Seeds

Key Lime Pie x Do-Si-Dos (Philosopher Seeds)

If the name Key Lime Pie × Do-Si-Dos isn’t tempting enough to make this your autumn strain of choice, then a single smell of these flowers will set the decision in stone. The trichomes of this strain create a unique and potent terpene profile that generates a very specific taste of fruit pie.

Not only will this strain provide comforting flavours during autumn, the sedating indica high and THC level of 24% inject some serious relaxation into the evenings. Key Lime Pie x Do-Si-Dos produces medium harvests both indoors and outdoors after a bloom period of 60–65 days.

7. Lemon Power Haze By Zamnesia Seeds

Lemon Power Haze (Zamnesia Seeds)

Although indica-dominant strains provide some much needed therapy in fall, sativa-dominant strains like Lemon Power Haze are great for enhancing the mood and stoking the flames of motivation. It can be hard to get out of bed in fall when it’s still dark, but it’s nothing that a fresh cup of coffee and a large joint loaded with Lemon Power Haze can’t remedy.

This mighty sativa grows to a height of 90–130cm when cultivated indoors, yielding up to 450g/m² in this setting. Plants grown outdoors surge to a height of 180cm and are capable of yielding up to 500g/plant.

8. Gelato Sorbet By Dna Genetics

Gelato Sorbet (DNA Genetics)

Gelato Sorbet is an indica-dominant hybrid that features 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa. Her tasty parent strains are responsible for passing down potent flavours of citrus fruit and sweetness, and her genetic balance contributes to a mellow high fuelled by a medium THC content.

Whether you plan on spending the day cuddled up indoors or harvesting, hiking, or chopping wood outdoors, Gelato Sorbet will bring delicious flavours and a euphoric vibe to the table. You won’t need too much space to grow this strain. She reaches a medium height indoors and out, delivering up to 500g/m² indoors.

9. Sch’Lemon Cake By Big Buddha Seeds

Sch'Lemon Cake (Big Buddha Seeds)

Sch’lemon Cake is another sativa-dominant variety that can shine some seriously good vibes on the dark days of autumn. She’s the perfect smoke for those days when rain patters on the windows and you don’t feel like leaving the house. Instead, blaze up a blunt full of these flowers to catalyse a powerfully stimulating and creative high, and direct your energy toward writing, making music, or whatever your creative outlet is.

10. Grease Monkey By Phat Panda Seeds

Grease Monkey (Phat Panda)

If you fancy walking a different path when the bad weather arrives, then Grease Monkey will hold your hand and stroll along with you. A few hefty hits of this strain will immediately justify retreating from the rain and wind to curl up on the couch whilst enjoying a lazy body buzz. By sure to have a few slices of pumpkin pie at hand, as the high THC level will invite the munchies to the party.
