We’re at the height of comic book culture, an era in which superheroes and the worlds they struggle to keep safe have become so mainstream, they have their own rich universes spanning across film franchises, streaming TV shows, toy lines, LEGO spinoffs, and jam-packed conventions. But before Jessica Jones grit, Aquaman hype, and the umpteenth Spider-Man reboot, we had the Caped Crusader, a Dark Knight who’s been keeping the streets of Gotham safe since 1939.
Over the ensuing decades, Batman would battle Jokers, Penguins, and, at one point, Floronic Man, who had the ability to accelerate plant growth thanks to his advanced knowledge of botany (sounds like a “sea of green” grower to me). While we don’t know for sure that this Gotham baddie with the green thumb was pro-cannabis, we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate Batman’s storied history and enduring pop culture relevance than by pondering which Batman-themed cannabis strains and products could win over Floronic Man, Poison Ivy, and even the Caped Crusader himself (because even Batman suffers from aches and pains).
Enjoy this roundup of items that may cause you to utter, “Holy smokes, Batman!

Batman-Themed Cannabis Strains
Sour Joker is the stimulating sativa blend of Amnesia Haze and East Coast Sour Diesel (ECSD). This amped combination offers consumers a vigorous body buzz that is clear-headed and motivating, encouraging physical activity in or outside. Harness the mental clarity of this strain at lower doses and the fueled-up stimulation with continued use.
Harlequin (Harley Quinn)
Harlequin is a 75/25 sativa-dominant strain renowned for its reliable expression of CBD. A descendant of Colombian Gold, a Nepali indica, and Thai and Swiss landrace strains, you can depend on Harlequin to provide clear-headed, alert sativa effects. Unlike most high-CBD strains, Harlequin almost always develops a CBD:THC ratio of 5:2, making this strain one of the most effective out there for treatment of pain and anxiety, as CBD can counteract THC’s paranoia while amplifying its painkilling properties. Flavors can range from earthy musk to sweet mango, but without a doubt, what draws crowds to Harlequin is its ability to relax without sedation and to relieve without intoxication.
Batman OG, named for the Caped Crusader of the DC Universe, is a potent indica that hits the body like POW! This knockout strain binds the consumer to the couch and offers relaxing physical effects that are calming and sedative. Batman OG has deep earthy notes intermixed with scents of skunk and pine. It combats insomnia, stress, and chronic pain so well, it will have you saying, “Holy indica, Batman!”
Batgirl is a sativa-dominant hybrid with beautiful effects. This Jack’s Cleaner and Blueberry cross brings out a unique and pleasant aroma of sweet berry and spicy chemicals. The strain’s hybrid effects express themselves as a heady euphoria that uplifts the mind while gently coating the body in calming haze. Weight can be felt on the eyelids as Batgirl circulates a warm, calming sensation through the body, making this strain ideal for consumers looking to shrug off stress and fatigue while improving mood.
Riddle me this! Riddler OG, also known as “Power,” is a trichome-rich hybrid that blends the heady, uplifting euphoria of Sour Dubble with the mid-level Kush-driven body effects of Master Kush. These effects come together to form a well-balanced hybrid that is useful and enjoyable any time of the day. With bright hues and earthy undertones, Riddler OG caters to consumers looking for a middle-of-the-road body buzz with a happy, uplifted mental state that will induce laughter and an overall carefree sensation.
