What’s the Story Behind Spooky Weed Names


When it comes to naming cannabis strains, anything is permitted as extended as the name is catchy, informative, and not offensive.

The name of a cannabis strain is ordinarily attempting to clarify any of the following:

  • the impact you are about to really feel (e.g.Sweet Dreams), 
  • the spot of origin (Durban Poison), 
  • genetic background (Berry White), 
  • the appear of the weed (Purple Cush), 
  • aroma (Sour Diesel), 
  • celebrity name (Charlie Sheen), 

Irrespective of whether they are aiming at some distinct strain trait or they are basically conveying a mishmash of their unrelated thoughts, the breeders use their creativity or sense of humor to come up with a exclusive name for their “cannabis child”.

And to be frank, a superior smoking session can spark a lot of “interesting” tips. This is evident when you verify some of the strain names on line.

To assistance you get into the excellent Halloween mood, I decided to make a list of some of the spookiest weed strain names.

I also incorporated a couple of films and music ideas, scary stories about history’s most notorious serial killers, creepy spiders, sharks, black flowers.

So, apart from spooky weed, you will discover a handful of other exciting items on this list that will hopefully assistance you practical experience Halloween the ideal way.

Killer Queen 

Freddie Mercury does not appear at all scary singing and dancing in fur and pantyhose to Queen’s hit song (it is truly seriously pleasing to the eye), so the Killer Queen strain is much more most likely a reference to Elizabeth Báthory.

Elizabeth was a 16th century Hungarian noblewoman and “the most prolific female murderer,” as cited by the Guinness Globe Records.

It has been reported that she killed up to 650 young girls and bathed in their blood to preserve her beauty and youth. Due to the fact of this vampiric activities, she is generally portrayed as a female version of Vlad III Dracula, the most well-known vampire on the planet.

But do not be concerned, when you smoke Killer Queen, you will not really feel the sudden urge to drink human blood. Rather the contrary, this thrilling hybrid of G13 and Cinderella 99 will give you uplifting and cerebral ride that will assistance you via the operating day.

Be cautious, even though, as it is seriously robust and it instantly hits you in the forehead. Possibly its impact could ideal be described by Freddie’s lyrics from the aforementioned song: “She’s assured to blow your thoughts!”

Black Dahlia

Black dahlia strain

Black Dahlia is a wonderful dark red flower (technically not black) that symbolizes betrayal and dishonesty.

It is also a nickname posthumously offered to Elizabeth Quick, 1 of America’s most well-known unsolved murders by this date. The 22-year old woman’s physique was discovered brutally severed in half and totally drained of blood.

Due to the brutal nature and mystery that nonetheless surrounds this murder case, The Black Dahlia has been the topic of various books and films.

The strain, on the other hand, is not common amongst a wider cannabis audience, but has a compact base of fans and devotees who appreciate its Indica dominant impact.

This hybrid is a mixture of Black Cherry Soda and Querkle, and has a distinctive “black as night” colour.

Black Dahlia delivers a robust sedative impact which is established to be an outstanding therapy for discomfort and insomnia. 

Black Widow

Black widow strain

An additional scary female reference, only this time we speak about spiders.

Black Widow female spiders are notorious for their shiny black look and tendency to consume their mates soon after sexual intercourse.

But these horrifying female spiders are not just hazardous to their mates. Their venom is reported to be 15 occasions stronger than 1 of a rattlesnake, and can be fatal to compact kids, elderly or people today with a weak immune technique.

The strain is pretty potent Sativa dominant hybrid with THC content material reaching up to  25%.

Black Widow (as properly as its planet-renowned cousin strain White Widow) is the operate of the well-known breeder Scott Blakey (aka Shantibaba) and it has won various awards, which includes 1995 Higher Instances Cannabis Cup.

This hybrid is a mixture of Brazilian Sativa and South Indian Indica hybrid. Most people today describe its impact as calming and relaxed, so it is ideal to smoke it at the finish of the day.   

Jack the Ripper

Jack the ripper strain

We are adding yet another notorious serial killer name to the list, and this time, it is likely the most well-known of them all – Jack the Ripper.

A 19th-century murderer has been linked to killings of 5 London female prostitutes, who had been dubbed “The canonical 5 Ripper victims”.

The victim’s mutilated bodies had been discovered with their throats reduce and abdomens totally butchered. The scariest portion of the story is that the infamous Victorian serial killer was never ever  identified.

Jack the Ripper strain (or just JTR) shares no similarities with its name.

It is an very enjoyable weed that will enhance your productivity and motivation to finish your every day tasks. It is wealthy in THCV, so you can anticipate not to get munchies soon after smoking JTR.

This Sativa dominant hybrid can also “break on via to the other psychedelic side”, so rookies really should dose their usage cautiously.


Chernobyl strain

If you are considering that there is nothing at all much more terrifying than a twisted thoughts of a serial killer, you are incorrect.

One particular occasion that occurred on April 26 of 1986 in Chernobyl plant close to Pripyat, Soviet Union, will mark the starting of a totally new level of horror that could only be compared to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

It is the deadliest nuclear disaster in history, and terrific consequences of this unfortunate occasion can nonetheless be observed right now.

In 2005, the Chernobyl Forum report set the quantity on 9000 deaths that had been straight linked to radiation exposure of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

But this quantity has been strongly criticized and other organizations (e.g. Greenpeace) estimated that much more than 200,000 circumstances of cancer deaths could be attributed to the Chernobyl incident.

A total quantity of miscarriages, cancer circumstances and other ailments induced by radiation is nonetheless a topic of political and scientific controversy.

If I got you interested in this subject, and you haven’t watched Chernobyl, the highest-rated Television series of all time on IMDb, I can only recommend you place anything aside and dedicate six hours of your life to this tv masterpiece. You will not regret.

Chernobyl weed is a prodigy of 3 distinct strains: Trainwreck, Jack the Ripper, and Trinity. It is classified as a Sativa dominant hybrid, and its impact can be described as energetic and uplifting.

This strain is pretty common amongst health-related individuals for the reason that of its euphoric but relaxing impact that lasts for a couple of hours.

As with all potent strains, you really should be cautious for the reason that there is a thin line amongst euphoria and anxiousness. 


KGB strain

Due to the fact we are speaking about the Soviet Union, let’s try to remember yet another creation of their regime.

The KGB stands for Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (Russian) and it implies Committee for State Safety.

It is generally described as the Russian equivalent of CIA with a slightly broader spectrum of responsibilities and secret operations.

Through the Cold War, just a mention of a Russian spy would send shivers down the spine of everyone who was opposed to the Communist government.

Secret surveillance, brutal interrogations, blackmail, kidnapping, poisoning and so forth. are only some of the murky operations that KGB performed from 1954 till 1991.

Most of the KGB activities stay classified even right now which only sparks people’s additional obsession with this secret service. Just assume about numerous “Russian villain” characters that are generally observed in Hollywood films.

KGB weed is a totally distinct story. The name stands for Killer Green Bud, and the Soviet reference is just a mere coincidence. It is an Indica dominant hybrid that was produced by crossing Burma and Afghani strains.

This strain is seriously potent, and you can anticipate extended lasting couch lock soon after just a couple of blows.

Shark Attack

Shark attack strain

I watched Jaws 20 years ago (for the initial and the final time) and these terrifying shark attack scenes are nonetheless present in my thoughts.

If you haven’t watched this horror classic directed by the 1 and only Steven Spielberg, this could be a excellent film recommendation to get you into the Halloween spirit.

As for the strain, there is nothing at all tense or scary about Shark Attack. It is a tranquilizing Indica-dominant hybrid that will bring about complete thoughts/physique relaxation.

Due to the fact of the higher level of CBD, this strain is generally made use of as a discomfort relief therapy amongst health-related individuals.

This crossbreed of Super Skunk and White Widow is pretty common amongst cultivators for the reason that it does not need a lot work to develop though yields are ordinarily pretty impressive.

Ghost Train Haze

Ghost train strain

This s(train) does not have any deeper historical or film reference, but the name itself is frightening adequate.

Just picture an empty train haunted by ghosts that never ever stops and you can never ever get off…or one thing along that line. It is a excellent plot for a Halloween story.

There is yet another frightening issue about this s(train), apart from its name. THC level that goes above 25%!

Ghost Train Haze is a winner of various Cannabis Cup awards, but becoming the 2012 winner of Higher Instances Strongest Strains on Earth is seriously one thing else.

It is one thing that says: “Be cautious, my pal, when you consume this THC giant. Massive doses (which implies something much more than a couple of hits) can turn a pleasant psychedelic practical experience into nasty paranoia.“

Ghost Train Haze is a crossbreed amongst Neville’s Wreck and Ghost OG. It is a Sativa dominant hybrid and if you consume it properly, you can anticipate a delighted and uplifting impact.

As you can see, most of these “scary weed” strains truly finish up healing, calming or uplifting you. As I see it, that is precisely what Halloween is (or really should be) all about.
