Fall is weed lovers season. Notably for beautifully colored leaves decorating the streets, cooler temperatures, and Halloween is right around the corner. More importantly, for one night only, we dress up in badass outfits and parade our otherwise spiritless streets, collecting absurd amounts of free candy. Make this a night to celebrate for the rest of your life with our list of costumes, products, and pass times for all you spooky stoners out there.
There’s no such thing as Halloween without a costume. For years we’ve seen some potheads go above and beyond wrapping themselves in earth-toned blankets, wearing a green hat, and calling it a day. Although, that is an awesome blunt costume, here are some of our more creative favorites for stoner-themed Halloween getups:
The Zig-Zag Man - If you’ve got a beard, or means of acquiring a fake one, you’re still pretty much golden. Toss on a bright orange beanie and roll up a doink and you’ll immediately bear a striking resemblance to our furry friend on the cover of Zig-Zag rolling papers.
The Dude - Boxers? Check. White tee? Check. Sandals? Check. Bathrobe? Alright, maybe you need to go buy a bathrobe - but Jeff Bridges aka "The Dude" from 1998 film The Big Lebowski is just about the easiest costume you can throw together. Especially if you’re looking to pay homage to one of the biggest pot figureheads in pop culture… or I guess, "pot culture".
Pothead - If dad jokes were a costume, they’d be this one. Fetch a medium-sized pot from your kitchen and plop it on your head sideways like a douchey baseball cap. Voila! You’re a pothead and it’s perfect.
Jay & Silent Bob - This one’s for all the couples out there, and it doesn’t take much. One of you wears yellow, and hopefully has blonde hair, and the other one completely shuts up for the rest of the night. Boom. Jay & Silent Bob, known for their signature stoner roles in just about any of Kevin Smith’s films. The couple are an easy duo to play and a surefire way to strike up half of a conversation at just about any Halloween party.
Now that you’ve got your costume figured out, let’s make your Halloween more 420-friendly with a cannabis twist:
Here’s our list of 5 strains for you try out this Halloween season:
Ghost OG - An indica dominant strain with hints of Afghan Kush.
Black Widow - A sativa dominant strain to creatively stimulate and relax the brain.
Zombie Kush - Lavender Kush and Amnesia mix with Bubba Kush to create this indica.
Jack The Ripper - A powerful Lemon Haze sativa named after the famed killer.
Durban Poison - An intense body-high, this sativa is known to give people the creeps.
Last but not least, we’re going to teach you how to make your very own pumpkin bong! Once you’ve picked your poison and acquired a pumpkin, all you really need is a drill bit and whatever stem piece you want to use for your pipe.
First, carve out a narrow hole through the center of your pumpkin for your stem to fit nice and tightly. Then, carve out a smaller hole for your carb on the side of the pumpkin that also goes through to the middle.
Next, you need to create a hole suitable for a mouthpiece of sorts. Once your stem is in place, you can take whatever weed you’ve got and fire up!
And there you have it! You’re dressed, you’ve got some kickass weed, and a festive means of smoking it. Now you’re ready for a night of trick-or-treating and a quick trip to the haunted house provided sativas haven't worn off.
