Since we’re all about to binge on sweet Halloween candy anyway, we figured this would be the perfect time to break out some of the best cannabis strain pairings to go with each and every flavour. Whether you long for the flaky indulgence of full-size Kit Kats or you prefer some sweet and delicious candy corn, we’ve got a strain recommendation list to suit all your needs on this spooky occasion.

1. Gummies

This sweet and sticky Halloween candy is a popular choice because they tend to include a sour twist that tingles the tongue.

Cannabis pairing: Blueberry, Grape Ape, Super Lemon Haze, Cherry Pie, Blackberry Dream

2. Kit Kat

Kit Kat bars are a tradition, and one of the most widely handed out chocolate options at this time of year, and there is nothing more satisfying than that chocolate wafer crunch.

Cannabis pairing: Biscotti, Captains Cake, White Choco Haze, Alien Kush, Tootsie Roll

3. Candy Corn

Candy corn isn’t as popular as it used to be, likely because it’s hard and not individually wrapped for safety, but it’s also one of the oldest Halloween treats out there.

Cannabis pairing: Candyland, Orange Cookies, Delicious Candy, Super Girl, Green Crack

4. Aero

There is no chocolate lighter and airier than the Aero bar, which is filled with sweet seductive holes that you can feel explode in your mouth as it melts.

Cannabis pairing: Chocolope, Wedding Cake, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Mint OG,

5. Starburst

Starburst candy comes in all shapes, sizes, and fruit flavours these days, with pink being notoriously the biggest favourite of them all, and with such a smooth, sweet, chewy texture, it’s not hard to see why.

Cannabis pairing: Fruity Pebbles, Strawberry Banana, Wonka’s Bubbalicious, Zkittles, Orange Creamsicle

6. Coffee Crisp


Coffee lovers unite over this delicious chocolate bar, which offers the perfect blend of the flaky wafer and coffee bean goodness in every single bite.

Cannabis pairing: Duct Tape, Chocolate Fondu, White Rhino, Girl Scout Cookies (GSC), Caviar

7. Licorice

It’s red or black, chewy, and it never seems to go bad no matter how long it sticks around. It’s also one of the most widely distributed Halloween candy choices.

Cannabis pairing: Black Licorice, Strawberry Cough, Licoris Kush, Blue Velvet, Sensi Star

8. Smarties

Smarties are so much fun to eat, as you sort the colours into pairs and then make a game out of the order in which they disappear, with a crunchy shell and melty chocolate combo that hit’s the munchie cravings just right.

Cannabis pairing: Romulan, Chocolate Runtz, White Guava, Cookie Breath, Key Lime Pie

9. Caramels

These super sticky candies are some of the worst for your health, but they taste oh so good, especially when they’re paired with the perfect cannabis strain.

Cannabis pairing: ChocolateThai, Animal Face, Cream Caramel, Kashmir Kush, Hurkle

10. Reese’s Pieces

Everything about Reese’s Pieces screams Halloween no matter which type you have, from the candy-coated chocolate drops to the full-size peanut butter cups that come wrapped in a bright orange package.
