People of all ages love Oreos, but the Oreoz strain is definitely not for everyone. This 70/30 indica-dominant strain is one of the heaviest hitters you can find and it can even put some experienced smokers flat on their asses.

Oreoz (also known as Oreos and Oreo Cookies) combines an unparalleled euphoric head high with a full but light body stone. It immediately erases stress, both mental and physical, without weighing you down or putting you to sleep — as long as you’re able to handle the THC punch. A little of this strain goes a long, long way.

And yes, it does smell and taste like Oreos, if you like your cookies dipped in dirt first; the sweet chocolate is partnered with earth, spice and diesel. This is a pungent, tasty dessert strain that’s packed with power.

Effects

Three cautions before we proceed. First, this isn’t weed for newbies; they’ll need to increase their THC tolerance before trying it. Second, be ready to settle in for the long haul. Oreoz delivers one of the longest-lasting highs you’ll ever experience. Finally, this strain’s effects build up quickly the more you smoke, and they can overwhelm almost anyone. Clear your calendar and be careful.

The Oreoz enjoyment begins quickly and hits both the mind and body almost simultaneously. The cerebral euphoria is uplifting and joyful, immediately banishing any negative thoughts, stress or concerns you may have built up. You’re likely to find yourself laughing, giggling and talking more than usual after just a couple of tokes.

The body buzz is equally relaxing and freeing, but it’s not accompanied by the stereotypical weighty indica feeling. It’s a light body stone that lets you move around without feeling lethargic. Many describe the combined head and body experience as both relaxing and energetic — until you smoke a little too much. After that, all bets are off and you’ll end up on the couch.

Oreoz is an extremely social strain, perfect for an extended evening smoke sesh with friends. In fact, it’s great even if you’re with people you don’t know; the uplifting high can erase social anxiety and make you feel at home with anyone. It’s also a good strain for solo use in the evening. Once the buzz finally wears off you’ll be ready for a long, refreshing sleep.

Bottom Line: Oreoz delivers an amazing high, with soaring cerebral euphoria and complete brain and body stress relief, along with a light and enjoyable body buzz. But this strain is so potent that only experienced smokers will be able to handle it, and even stoners should go slow.

Positive Effects:

  • Energy: 3/5
  • Creative: 2/5
  • Pain: 3/5
  • Stress: 5/5
  • Sleep: 2/5
  • Mood: 5/5

Side Effects

We’ve already mentioned the most Oreoz important side effect to be aware of: overuse. Even a few hits too many can lead to sedation, brain fog and/or greenout. Those with anxiety issues may feel their anxiety worsening and may experience panic attacks or paranoia. You can also expect dry mouth, dry eyes, and perhaps the worst case of the munchies you’ve ever had.

Negative Effects:

  • Paranoid: 3/5
  • Dry Mouth: 5/5
  • Dry Eyes: 4/5
  • Lethargy: 2/5
  • Cough: 4/5

Medical Conditions

The powerful mental uplift provided by Oreoz makes it a go-to strain for MMJ patients dealing with common psychological issues like stress, anxiety and depression, as well as more serious ones like PTSD and OCD. They have to be cautious, however, because of the possibility that the high THC content could hurt instead of help.

The joyful high may help some pain patients forget their problems for a while, but Oreoz’ light body stone isn’t as conducive to chronic or serious pain relief as indicas usually are. What patients do say, however, is that it helps relieve nausea, gastrointestinal issues and appetite loss, and it allows those with insomnia to get to sleep when the Oreoz experience is over.

Flavor and Aroma

Oreoz doesn’t smell exactly like an Oreo cookie, but it comes close. The chocolate and vanilla scents mix with coffee, nuts, herbs, spice, and diesel to create an enticing aroma of weed that will start your mouth watering.

The flavor is just as good. The sweet chocolate taste is tempered by earthiness, along with the spice, nuts, vanilla, coffee, and diesel notes that make the Oreoz flavor unique.

Flavor and Aroma Ratings:

  • Earthy: 4/5
  • Citrus: 2/5
  • Fruity: 3/5
  • Spice: 3/5
  • Wood: 2/5

Cannabinoids and Terpenes

Don’t be fooled by the numbers you’ll often see. Lab results say that the average THC content in Oreoz is 23%, but you probably won’t find this weed with such a “low” level of THC. Expect it to be anywhere from 25-30% – and if you’re lucky, it may get as high as 33%. This is exceptionally potent bud. There’s virtually no CBD in Oreoz and only low levels of CBG.

The dominant terpenes in Oreoz are caryophyllene, phellandrene, bisabolol, myrcene, humulene and limonene.

Lineage

Oreoz gets its amazing potency and characteristics from two equally-amazing parents, Cookies and Cream and Secret Weapon. Each has THC content in the mid-to-high 20% range; Cookies and Cream contributes its sweetness and euphoric effects, while Secret Weapon adds sweet earthiness.

Many credit 3rd Coast Genetics with creating Oreoz, although not all experts are sure that the strain originally came from that breeder.

Where to Buy Oreoz Seeds

Blimburn Seeds, Gelato Seeds and 3rd Coast Genetics (said to be the original breeder) are among the online vendors that sell feminized Oreoz seeds, although they’re often out of stock. Clones are even more difficult to find.

Similar Strains

Those looking for a potent chocolate strain with effects similar to Oreoz might want to try Chocolope, Choco Haze or Choco Candy. If flavor is secondary, Honey Bun, Grape, and Blueberry Muffin #4 are three to check out.

Oreoz Strain Review: FAQ

Q: What’s the usual flowering time for Oreoz plants?
A: There’s not a lot of information on growing the strain, since it’s so difficult to find as seeds or clones. A few growers, however, have said that the flowering period generally lasts about nine weeks.

Q: Is this a high THC strain?
A: Absolutely. Lab tests show the average THC content to be 23% which is already potent, but most of the weed sold in dispensaries comes in at 25% THC or even more.
