Without a doubt, there’s no bigger flex for a cannabis connoisseur than creating an amazingly good new weed strain and getting to name it according to their properties, their effects, or how funny those monikers would be. And of course, spooky names are not the exception; most of them are kind of tongue-in-cheek, but also serve as pretty good indicators of what their high is like. In no particular order, we’ll present our favorites right here:
A predominantly Indica marijuana strain, boasting a composition of 70 percent Indica and 30 percent Sativa. Its striking appearance features lush foliage with a medley of colors, ranging from vibrant green to subtle shades of yellow and purple. The buds are generously coated in trichomes, giving them a dense texture. With a moderate to high THC content, Ghost OG has a robust aroma with hints of lemon and citrus. The flavor profile is equally great, combining Kush, lime, and sweet notes, delivering a potent and euphoric high. It tends to stimulate the appetite, inspiring cravings for a variety of snacks, which is perfect for Halloween, and it’s amazingly effective against anxiety, stress, and even chronic pains, including arthritis, headaches, and back pain.
Another predominantly Indica hybrid, but with an impressive 90% Indica and 10% Sativa genetic blend. Fanatics often describe the high induced by Zombie OG as an almost immediate rush of euphoria, starting with a mentally relieving head high, followed by a heavy body, inducing a profound chill (hence its name). Eventually you can even fall into a deep and peaceful sleep, so take that into account.
However, despite its potency, this strain offers a surprisingly delicate aroma reminiscent of earthy lavender and pine, with a flavor profile combining sweet, earthy, and floral notes with a piney undertone. Its buds are characterized by their compact, dense, spade-shaped appearance, adorned with bright neon green hues, dark orange hairs, and a generous layer of sugary white trichomes and sticky resin.
Frankenstein starts with an unexpectedly delightful aroma similar to mango, while its flavor profile has a hint of sweet citrus upon exhalation. The strain's buds are small, pebble-shaped, densely packed neon green nugs, adorned with fiery orange hairs and patches of frosty minty light green leaves.
This is a strain that has earned the acclaim of the cannabis community for its extraordinary potency, showcasing a THC content that hovers between 18-22%, maybe more. While the precise lineage of Frankenstein remains a well-kept secret among breeders (but probably is around 80% Indica and 20% Sativa), it is believed to be a descendant of OG Kush and several other strains that fuel ongoing debates.
Of course, the effects of Frankie feel like transforming into the monster—sedated yet active, with some sense of lethargy and an insatiable case of the munchies. Users might start with some euphoria that swiftly becomes a relaxed high, offering relief from stress. As the high unfolds, it leads to an introspective mindset. Thanks to these effects, Frankenstein can be particularly effective in addressing chronic pain, anxiety, stress, arthritis, and appetite loss.
Yup, a killer strain, alright. But don’t worry, hitting the Ripper will not transform you into an urban legend or anything of the sort, but instead offer a gradual high ideal for creativity and problem-solving. Combined with a generous boost of energy and a sense of relaxation, Jack the Ripper is commonly used to alleviate depression and anxiety, although it has also shown effectiveness in managing conditions like PTSD, migraines, and PMS. But is it good? Well, Jackie boasts a citrusy lemon flavor and an earthy aroma. Its THC content typically averages below 15%, so while it may not be the most potent strain around, it’s perfect to chill with some friends without losing yourself to the high.
A rare hybrid with a genetic makeup of 60% sativa and 40% indica. This enthralling strain is the result of a complex breeding process involving SFV OG Kush, Chem D, and Cinderella 99. The result is a mesmerizing flavor with the potential to alleviate aches and pains. Witches Weed boasts a flavor profile featuring a sweet honey and sage taste, complemented by subtle floral undertones. The aroma is equally great, exuding a sweet and mild scent of fresh herbs and sage with rich floral notes.
The magic of Witches Weed, however, lies in its effects. A euphoric and uplifting experience enveloping mind and body awaits you. Within moments of your last hit, your body will succumb to a soothing tingling sensation, gently ushering you into a state of mild couch-lock and sparking a minor case of the munchies. Thanks to its exceptionally high average THC content of 29%, Witches Weed is often used to manage various conditions, including chronic pain, depression, fatigue, stress, and anxiety. Witches Weed's buds are compact and heart-shaped, with a light green hue, somewhat translucent amber hairs, and a generous coating of tiny crystal trichomes that match its magical aura.
