Halloween 2023 is almost here, and for those of us 21 and older, it's the perfect time to combine two of our favorite fall things: think less pumpkin spice and UGGS and more weed and spooky celebrations. Whether you're planning a relaxing night in to watch classic horror movies or attending a costume party with friends, we've got some of the best ways to make Halloween 2023 a ghoulishly good time. From the best candy to pair with specific weed strains to this year's top Halloween party ideas and a few fun fall activities, it’s time for Doobie to deliver you some ways to have a high-spirited Halloween.
If you are heading to a Halloween party this year, there are a few things that you’ll need. The first is a “killer” costume and, of course, an unexpected party treat to share with friends. Imagine walking in with an Instagram-worthy pumpkin bong or having a moment for your fog effect Witch’s POTion, you can!
Making a Pumpkin Bong
It's the dankest DIY you’ll probably ever be a part of. To start, you may want a weed delivery directly to your front door, you can call Doobie at (888) 8DOOBIE. Remember to be safe when carving your pumpkin and share your pictures with Doobie on Instagram. Your pumpkin bong may be featured on our Halloween highlights.
Materials You'll Need for a Pumpkin Bong
- A medium to large pumpkin
- A carving knife and smaller detailing tools
- A downstem and bowl (often made of glass)
- A drill with a drill bit matching the size of your downstem
- A plastic or silicone sealant
- A screen for the bowl
How to Make a Pumpkin Bong
Carve a Hole for the Downstem
Decide where you want to place the downstem on the pumpkin. It should be at a slight angle so the downstem goes down into the pumpkin, not straight through the side. Mark the location, and then carefully drill a hole using the drill with the appropriate bit size. Make sure the hole is snug but not too tight for the downstem.
Cut Off the Top
Using your carving knife, carefully cut off the top of the pumpkin, creating a lid. This lid will be where you place your mouth when using the pumpkin bong, so make sure it's large enough.
Hollow Out the Pumpkin
Remove the seeds and pulp from the inside of the pumpkin. You want to create a clean and spacious cavity for the smoke to pass through. You can use your hands or a scoop for this.
Attach the Downstem
Insert the downstem into the hole you've drilled. If it's a bit loose, you can use a plastic or silicone sealant to create an airtight seal around the downstem and the hole.
Add a Glass Bowl and Screen
Attach a bowl to the end of the downstem on the outside of the pumpkin. Place a screen in the bowl to prevent weed from falling through.
Replace the Lid
Put the pumpkin lid back on top, aligning it with the hole you cut earlier.
Test and Use
Make sure everything is securely in place, and then load the bowl with your desired amount of weed. Light it while inhaling from the top of the pumpkin. Be sure to inhale slowly and not to overheat the pumpkin or the downstem.

Weed Halloween Costumes
Certainly, if you're looking to step up your 420-themed costume game, here are some unique and creative ideas that will turn heads at your Halloween celebration. Consider comfort and practicality when creating your costume, and ensure it's safe and appropriate for the Halloween event you'll be attending. These costumes are not only fun but also a great conversation starter for like-minded enthusiasts at your Halloween party!
Cannabis Plant Costume
Embrace your love for the green herb by dressing up as a full-sized cannabis plant. You can create a leafy outfit with faux marijuana leaves and pair it with a pot-shaped hat.
Take your favorite superheroes and give them a stoner twist. Imagine characters like "Budman" or "Captain Cannabis" with their own signature cannabis-themed accessories and superpowers.
Marijuana Munchie Monster
Combine the love for cannabis with your favorite munchies by becoming a "Munchie Monster." Attach giant chip or cookie bags to your costume and carry a bag of real snacks.
Bob Ross 420 Style
Transform into the iconic artist Bob Ross with a cannabis twist. Dress in his classic painter outfit, but add some cannabis-themed elements like a "Happy Trees" sign and a paintbrush with a marijuana leaf.
Weed Fairy or Weed Wizard
Create a magical and whimsical costume by becoming a "Weed Fairy" or a "Weed Wizard." Deck yourself out with cannabis-themed accessories, glittery wings, and a wand with a cannabis leaf at the end.
Marijuana Dispensary Employee
Emulate the look of a budtender or dispensary worker. Wear a "budtender" t-shirt with a name tag, and carry empty cannabis containers as props. Don't forget a lanyard with a few keys.
Choose your favorite cannabis-related emoji, whether it's the leaf, the joint, or the smiley face with red eyes, and turn it into a costume. Paint a large version on a cardboard cutout that you can wear.
Rolling Paper or Lighter
Dress as a giant rolling paper or lighter for a more subtle but clever costume. It's a witty way to show your love for the 420 culture.

Pairing Halloween Candy And Weed Strains
Did you know that weed strains and certain candies pair well together? We’re not just talking edibles; we mean there are ways to potentially increase the terpenes in the weed you are consuming when you enjoy them with your favorite Halloween candies.
Dark chocolate and an Indica strain can be a great way to start your evening. The sweet and slightly bitter flavor combination in Dark chocolate brings out the relaxing effects and flavors in strains like Granddaddy Purple and Purple Kush.
Stick to sour gummies and Sativas. The energetic high that comes from a Sour Diesel or Lemon Haze can be enhanced by tart and tangy treats.
Peanut Butter Cups go perfectly with a hybrid high. Just like the sweet and salty of the candy, Hybrid Strains like Blue Dream and Animal Mints also offer a balanced experience.
Fun Things to Do on Halloween High
Scary Movie Marathon
Gather your friends and indulge in a marathon of classic horror films or binge-watch a spooky TV series. The suspense and scares will be even more intense with a little weed in your system. Looking for something less scary and move 420-friendly? Watch a movie with weed, such as Friday, Pineapple Express or Cheech and Chong are all classic options.
Halloween-themed Painting or Craft Night
Set up an art station with canvases, paint, brushes, and various crafting supplies. Spend the evening creating Halloween-themed artwork or crafts with your friends. You can paint pumpkins, witches, haunted houses, or anything else that inspires you. It's a fun and creative way to express yourself while enjoying the Halloween spirit. Plus, cannabis may enhance your creativity and appreciation for colors and textures.
Ghost Tour or Paranormal Investigation
Many cities offer guided ghost tours or paranormal investigations, especially during the Halloween season. Explore haunted locations while high, and immerse yourself in the eerie history and stories associated with these places. It can be a fascinating and spooky adventure for the brave-hearted.
Glow-in-the-Dark Mini Golf
Many mini-golf venues offer glow-in-the-dark courses. It's a trippy and entertaining way to spend your Halloween night.
This Halloween, elevate your festivities with the perfect weed strains and candy pairings, rock one of the top costumes of 2023, enjoy a weed-infused Witch’s Brew Potion, and dive into five fun activities that will make your high Halloween unforgettable.
