We’ve rounded up some exciting new varieties hitting dispensary shelves just in time for pumpkin spice and apple picking season.

If the apples falling from the trees in the back alleys of my neighborhood are any indication, harvest season has officially arrived. And just in time too. If you’re anything like me, August’s wave of heat waves have you yearning for some sweater weather even more.

Temperatures aside, Oregon is arguably at its best in the fall, and for more reasons than dazzling leaf colors, big zucchini, and sprawling corn mazes. Our state is incredibly fertile, producing not only a wide variety of produce, but also an abundance of weeds.

However, despite prolific production, cannabis use in Oregon is on the decline. You could even say that recreational weed is going through something of a recession. But, during harvest season, we can reconnect with the grass by celebrating the growing process with the breeders whose hard work nurtures our daily lives.

To get you started, here’s a roundup of some exciting new strains you can use to store your fall canna cornucopia as they begin to hit dispensary shelves.

Dream Cake

Bred from a cross between Wedding Cake and Sunset Sherbet by Seed Junky Genetics this year only, this hybrid offers the best of both parent strains. Dream Cake has pronounced indica genetics and as such produces distinctly serene effects. Users report romantic and dreamy effects best suited for low-stakes home use. Given the genetics of this cultivar, you can expect the swooning tranquility of Wedding Cake and the sultry relaxation of Sunset Sherbet, both lightly lifted by a peppery, caryophyllene terpene profile.

TO BUY: Pure Roots Dispensary, 5816 NE Portland Highway, 971-865-5176.


Zoap is a relatively new and balanced hybrid with a complex genetic history. This cross of Pink Guava, Rainbow Sherbet and F2 Pheno 21 arrives with high potency (25% THC and above), resulting in a thick, cottony buzz with the potential to get users couch deep or gathering them to the kitchen for a sleepwalking nibbling adventure. Based on their resting state, users report highs of laughter, social as well as deep body relaxation. Potential therapeutic effects include relief from depression, nausea, and chronic pain.

TO BUY: Club Sky High, 8975 N Lombard St., 503-719-5801, clubskyhigh.net.

Georgia Pie

Georgia Pie is an intensely cool and soothing hybrid from a cross of Gellati and Kush Mints. This cultivar is said to be strong enough to keep college smokers in a literal and figurative haze for the rest of the harvest season. Effects include sparkling euphoria, heavy limbs, mild introspection, and a powerful case of cravings. By most accounts, this strain smells and tastes like a sweet, buttery pie crust, which is all the rage for a season all about pumpkin spice and apple picking.

TO BUY: Nectar, 2422 SE Hawthorne Blvd., 503-719-6106, nectar.store.

great durban

If high-octane strains dominate your storage box, Supa Durban will be your go-to for waking up and cooking in the fall. The strain is a haze-crossed variation of an already fiery sativa landrace, so users should expect a lofty, bright-eyed head and a blood-pumping body buzz. Pro Tip: Use this cultivar with intention. It has a strong “rearrange your bathroom” vibe that might leave unprepared stoners feeling tightly hurt. Take it easy and keep a few crayons on standby.

TO BUY: TreeHouse Collective, 2419 NE Sandy Blvd., 503-894-8774.


Zuyaqui is a more sleepy cultivar that produces potent, tranquilizing body highs and cashmere fluff behind the eyes. Coming from a cross of mellow Dogwalker and Horchata hybrids, Zuyaqui expresses her genetics with a dreamy start that melts into a velvety body. Users detail classic pot head effects like heavy eyelids, reckless snacking and Netflix to nap-style relaxation. Stoners who herald the arrival of fall because you leave for work and come home in the dark, Zuyaqui is perhaps the perfect cultivar to relax and dissociate.

TO BUY: Barbur Today’s Herb Picks, 9220 SW Barbur Blvd., #107, 503-208-3042, todaysherbalchoice.com.
