Besides its funky name, the Oreoz strain has much going for it. It’s super tasty, has a high potency level, and boasts excellent parentage. Read on to learn everything you need to know about this cannabis strain.
Oreoz is an Indica-leaning hybrid that’s been growing in popularity. It’s a cross between Secret Weapon and Cookies & Cream, and if you know anything about these two parent strains, you can already tell how mouth-watering Oreoz is when smoked or baked.
Cookies & Cream is a well-rounded cannabis strain that promises a pleasurable smoking experience. Upon first glance, you’ll notice the dark green buds covered in icy trichomes and yellow pistils. It’s hard to miss its vanilla and cheese-like scent. As for its flavor profile, this parent strain promises a smooth and tasty toke featuring creamy, nutty, and skunky notes on the inhale and exhale. Its average THC levels are 20% though it’s not uncommon to stumble on buds having as high as 25% THC.
Expect to feel lightheaded after the first hit. Other effects, such as euphoria, psychedelic sensations, and relaxation, will eventually kick in before ending in couch-lock. Fans of Cookies & Cream say it might help with chronic pain and insomnia.
The second parent strain, Secret Weapon, brings in the big guns in the THC composition department. Secret Weapon is a Sativa-leaning weed strain that delivers a well-balanced full-body high. It has olive green buds packed with a thick layer of frosty trichomes. As for its aroma, this strain has earthy, fruity, and herbal notes upon the first inhale. Experienced users may also catch sour notes in the background.
Its flavor is pine with hints of spice and fruits on the exhale. Secret Weapon boasts high THC levels of up to 28%, responsible for its tingling sensation and euphoric and levitating effects. Users say Secret Weapon can help manage chronic pain, anxiety, migraines, and appetite loss.
Oreoz has a racking terpene profile that contributes to its aroma and medical benefits. Caryophyllene is the most prominent and helps manage depression and anxiety. The other terpenes are humulene myrcene, phellandrene, limonene, and α-Bisabolol.
Oreoz packs dense, neon-green buds with a heavy coating of frosty trichomes and amber pistils. When broken apart, the nugs reveal mouth-watering sticky resin.
This strain has an alluring scent profile that consists of vanilla, pepper, chocolate, and nuts. The flavor is as impressive and a culmination of earthy, vanilla, and creamy chocolate tones on the inhale with hints of diesel.
Oreoz has an average THC composition of 21-23%. However, it has the potential to hit the levels as high as 33%. Expect hard-hitting effects that might remind you of your newbie days. You may start to feel euphoric and carefree, and uplifted. Don’t be surprised when you find yourself chattier and bubblier than usual. You may experience a wave or relaxing energy once Oreoz settles. You may still maintain your mental focus if you have a high tolerance. That said, a few more hits will make you feel lethargic and eventually fall asleep.
Users with anxiety and depression may benefit from Oreoz, thanks to its uplifting and euphoric effects. Additionally, this strain is an excellent choice for users with muscle tension and insomnia. And those struggling with migraines and other forms of chronic pain may experience relief.
Due to its heavy-hitting effects, some users may experience greening out, which manifests as nausea, dizziness, turning pale, and sometimes a panic attack. These adverse reactions are rare among experienced users, so you might want to take it slow if you’re a beginner. Other side effects typical of weed are dry eyes and cottonmouth which you can quickly remedy through hydration and eye drops.
Cannabis enthusiasts who have attempted to propagate Oreoz have said it requires moderate cultivating experience. Regarding its physiology, Oreoz is short to medium and displays Afghanica-type leaves in the vegetation phase. In the flowering stage, the leaves appear narrower and medium-stretched. These leaves also shift from dark green to purple, then black, with resinous lavender-colored flowers covered in crystal-like trichomes.
The ideal growing environment for the vegetative and early flowering phase is high light intensity as the plant is light-resilient. It would be best to reduce the light levels during the last 14 days of flowering to maintain flower quality and preserve terpenes. Consider 800-900 photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) if cultivating Oreoz indoors.
As for its input conditions, the Oreoz strain thrives when multi-topped with various flower sites for each plant during the canopy stage. We recommend a well-draining substrate for better healthy root growth. Oreoz strain has moderate fertilizer requirements, maxing at about 2.2 electrical conductivity (EC) at six weeks during the flowering stage.
One challenge that is common among cannabis growers is pests. You’ll be happy to know that the Oreoz strain is not susceptible to aphids and is reasonably resistant to molds. Remember to let the plant mature entirely to reduce the risk of grey mold, specifically during the last days of flowering.
The recommended flowering period for indoor cultivation is sixty-five days, with yields of about 1 and 2 OZ/FT2. Outdoor growth produces cannabis yields between 10 to 15 oz per plant. Generally, you can expect to harvest Oreoz in early October.
With a name like Oreoz, this cannabis strain promises flavor, high potency, and a fun smoking sesh which it delivers fully. So if you have been hunting for a new weed strain in your home collection, we recommend visiting the nearest Hikei dispensary and getting your ounce of Oreoz.
