3rd Coasts Oreoz Description

A strain named after a world-famous sandwich cookie promises quite a lot in terms of flavor and aroma. And anyone lucky enough to have savored some well-cured Oreoz buds will likely agree that this strain upholds and even exceeds expectations. Keep reading to learn more about the Oreoz cannabis strain, its history, genetic lineage, effects, and more.

Strain History of Oreoz

Given its name, you might be inclined to think that Oreoz was created by the Cookies brand. And while it does descend from a famous Cookies hybrid, this strain wasn't created by Cookies breeders at all. Instead, Oreoz (stylised as OREOZ) is the beloved creation of 3rd Coast Genetics—a respected breeding company headed by MaxYields and based on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Founded in 2005, 3rd Coast Genetics is a big name in the cannabis genetics industry, and is behind some award-winning and famous strains. Arguably some of the biggest names in the 3rd Coast seed catalogue are:

• OOOZE (Secret Weapon x Cookies and Cream)


Over the last 18 years, MaxYields has been dedicated to creating cannabis strains that challenge traditional norms of what weed looks, smells, and tastes like. And anyone lucky enough to have tried Oreoz or any other 3rd Coast strain will likely agree that they've done exactly that! 3rd Coast strains are loved for their intense aromas. In fact, PUREMICHIGAN was marketed under the slogan "zero fruit" because it stands out for having no fruity terpenes—something that's almost impossible to find in modern strains.

Genetic Lineage of Oreoz

Oreoz was created by crossing Secret Weapon and Cookies and Cream—two well-known strains in their own right.

Secret Weapon is itself a cross of Cheese Quake and White Widow. A hybrid that's sometimes sativa dominant (depending on where you buy it or what you read), Secret Weapon is known to produce up to 25% THC with a focused, energetic, and creative mental high that's ideal for morning or daytime use. Available from a variety of different breeders and collectives, Secret Weapon has an earthy pine aroma with notes of cheese, fruit, and spice.

Cookies and Cream, on the other hand, is a beloved Cookies descendant. Bred by multiple cannabis cup winner Exotic Genetix, Cookies and Cream is the offspring of Starfighter and an undisclosed GSC phenotype, resulting in a balanced but powerful hybrid. In 2014, Cookies and Cream took first place at the Denver Cannabis Cup in the hybrid category, and its popularity has only risen since.

Oreoz obviously preserves a lot of traits from both its parent strains. However, it also boasts unique aromas, exceptional potency, and long-lasting effects that are hard to find in other strains, even its genetic predecessors.

Physical Characteristics of Oreoz

Oreoz was previously available to order in seed form directly from 3rd Coast Genetics. However, it's recently been taken off their website and may be unavailable for purchase. Hence, there is limited information available regarding its stature and physical traits. Below we'll summarize the information available about this strain's appearance.

In general, Oreoz plants have a short to medium stature and produce dark green, broad-fingered leaves. They develop narrow branches and stretch considerably once in the bloom phase. As they mature, Oreoz plants typically produce extra-dense flowers, and their leaves tend to take on deep purple, almost black hues. As they approach their harvest date, Oreoz flowers become loaded with a creamy white resin and bulging calyxes accented by fire-red pistils.

Properties/Effects of Oreoz

Oreoz is a highly potent cannabis strain, with some batches containing up to 33% THC. On average, however, the strain produces roughly 25% THC alongside high levels of terpenes such as caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene. These terps give the strain a very complex aroma. As its name suggests, Oreoz buds smell of dark chocolate and dessert, but a trained nose may also pick up on sour hints reminiscent of her Cheese Quake ancestor or Diesel varieties. The smoke/vapor from this strain is dense and smooth, with a milky mouthfeel, sugary sweetness, and an intense kick.

One or two hits of Oreoz is usually all it takes to get even experienced smokers hella high. Individuals with a tolerance treasure Oreoz for its well-balanced effects that elevate the mood and relax the body without causing couch-lock. Novice smokers, however, will likely consider this a knockout strain suitable for quickly inducing deep, restorative sleep.

Uses of Oreoz

Oreoz is extremely popular among experienced smokers with a high tolerance, for whom it produces a relaxing yet functional high. According to user reports, recreational cannabis smokers use Oreoz for the following purposes:

• As a relaxing, daytime smoke

• At laid-back parties and get-togethers with close friends

• To relax and destress after work

• To stimulate creative thinking

• While doing chores and housework

Given its balanced effects that target both the brain and body, Oreoz is also very popular among medical cannabis patients. While every patient is unique and has different needs, many find Oreoz to be a highly therapeutic strain. Some of the top ailments and symptoms for which medical marijuana patients choose Oreoz include:

• Anxiety, such as rumination and racing thoughts

• Depression and mood-related issues

• Stress

• Physical pain

• Low appetite

• Insomnia and sleep issues

Oreoz is very high in THC, and so it can cause unwanted side effects in some people—especially those with a low tolerance. Some negative side effects of this strain include:

• Headaches

• Anxiety and paranoia

• Couch-lock (can also be viewed as a benefit)

• Dry mouth and eyes

Cultivation/Production of Oreoz

Oreoz is currently unavailable from the 3rd Coast Genetics website. However, reports from other growers suggest that this is an easy and rewarding strain to cultivate at home. Thanks to their moderate stature, Oreoz plants are well-suited to indoor cultivation—just keep in mind that they may stretch considerably at the beginning of their bloom phase.

During veg and pre-bloom, Oreoz plants seem to grow vigorously and are highly resilient to physical stress (from training, for example) as well as pests and pathogens. Light to moderate feeding during veg can help to promote healthy and rapid growth. Once in bloom, Oreoz plants need roughly 60 days to mature their flowers. During this time, it's important to minimize humidity to avoid mold.

Other seed banks offer different varieties of Oreoz, most of which are indica dominant and have similar growth traits as those described here. Check out their specific pages for more detailed information on each variety.
