Last fall, Ieso refreshed its brand and launched new flower. Recently, Ieso added several new strains to its Cultivate library. This week, I picked up to review four new Cultivate strains from Consume Carbondale, including Jungle Cake, LA Kush Cake, Monkey Spunk, and Oreoz. This review is for the latter.
For months, I’d seen photos of Oreoz on social media and patient grow journals, and I could tell from the bag appeal that the strain was going to be wildly popular in dispensaries. Now, it’s on Illinois menus, and I have a feeling it’ll sell well.
Oreoz (also referred to as Oreo Cookies or Oreos) is an indica-dominant hybrid (70% indica/30% sativa) cross of Cookies & Cream and Secret Weapon. This batch tested at 0.47% THCa, 22.69% THC, and 23.16% total cannabinoids and was packaged less than a month before pickup.
As mentioned, the bag appeal for Oreoz was visually pleasing in color, shape, and trichomes. Creamy trichomes caked the lumpy thumb-sized buds from top to bottom. The dense well-trimmed bud’s colors ranged from bright and dark greens to purple and black with dark rusty pistils.
The aroma carried a sweet diesel and pine with notes of spice and nuttiness. The flavor matched the aroma. In the past, I have reviewed several strains that claimed to have a chocolate flavor, but besides a few back notes of something sweet but not necessarily chocolate, Oreoz delivered my first distinct sweet chocolate and cream flavor, especially on the inhale, with added notes of diesel, nutty pine, vanilla, and kush. The exhale carried more of the back note flavors.
Oreoz produced a hybrid-style effects with a potent cerebral head high that matched well with a slowly increasing body buzz. The relatively-clearheaded high hit with uplifting and euphoric effects that caused stress to release from mind and body. With more doses, the head high caught up to me with a little thoughlock, but it didn’t last long.
The long lasting and relaxing high allowed me to work, relax, play games, and watch television during day and night use. The body buzz built slowly at first then kicked in full within 15 minutes and continued with easing my cramps and inflammation. Oreoz also had a strong appetite booster.
After this review, I am ready to dig into the three other new Cultivate strain I’d picked up to find out if Ieso has matched the quality in those strains as well as it did with this Oreoz.
Ieso, named after the Greek goddess of recuperation from illness, was founded near the inception of Illinois’ Medical Cannabis Pilot Program and is located in Carbondale.
