Of course, there is more to cannabis than just psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the higher the cannabinoid count, the stronger the potency. This is due to the entourage effect, a synergy of cannabinoids working together to boost efficacy of each. The more cannabis compounds in a strain, the more effective it is, both medicinally and recreationally.
As such, some strains might come with Halloween-perfect effects:
1. Deadhead OG

Not for the faint of heart, for the bravest of brave only, Bloodwalker is the ideal strain for mingling with otherworldly creatures at Halloween. This Sativa-dominant hybrid inspires lengthy beach walks under moonlit stars, but do not let it fool you: Bloodwalker soon turns you into one yourself, whether vampire, werewolf, or whatever today’s identity, leaving you sleepy after several tumultuously fun blissful hours.
Fortunately, cannabis delivery is widely and easily available throughout California. A quick Google search for “weed delivery near me” will show you who services the Santa Monica area. You can find all of these strains and more online, and at this late stage, have them arrive at your door in 45 minutes, likely less. However, research first. Not all have licenses. Not all are safety compliant. Not all are even real.
