We Rounded Up Exciting New Strains That Are Hitting Dispensary Shelves Just in Time for Pumpkin-Spice and Apple-Picking Season

If the apples falling from my neighborhood trees are an indication that harvest time is officially here. And that too in time. If you’re like me, the August heat waves made you long for some sweater weather.

Temperatures aside, Oregon is arguably at its best in the fall, for more reasons than the dazzling leaf colors, fat 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 productive production, cannabis use in Oregon is on the decline. You could even say that recreational cannabis is going through a bit of a recession. But during harvest time, we can reconnect with weed by celebrating the cultivation process alongside the growers whose hard work defines our daily lives.

To start, here’s a roundup of exciting new strains to use to fill your fall canna cornucopia as they start hitting dispensary shelves.

dream cake

Bred just this year by Seed Junky Genetics from a cross between Wedding Cake and Sunset Sherbet, this hybrid delivers the best of both of its parent strains. Dream Cake has strong indica genetics and as such delivers decidedly tranquil effects. Users report romantic, dreamy highs that are best suited for low-stakes home use. Considering the genetics of this strain, you can expect the swooning calm of Wedding Cake and the sensual relaxation of Sunset Sherbet, both gently enhanced by a peppery, caryophyllene-like terpene profile.

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


Zoap is a relatively new, balanced hybrid with a complex genetic history. This crossing of Pink Guava, Rainbow Sherbet, and F2 Pheno 21 arrives with a high potency (25% THC and up), resulting in a thick, cottony body high that has the potential to either couch-lock users or sedate them herd the kitchen for a sleepwalking snacking adventure. Depending on their state of rest, users report giggling, social highs and deep body relaxation. Potential therapeutic effects include relief from depression, nausea, and chronic pain.

Georgia Pie

Georgia Pie is an extremely cool, soothing hybrid bred from a cross between Gellati and Kush Mints. This strain is reportedly potent enough to literally and figuratively put varsity stoners in a haze for the remainder of the harvest season. Effects include inflammatory euphoria, heavy limbs, gentle introspection, and a powerful case of cravings. By most accounts, this strain smells and tastes like a sweet, buttery pie crust, which is very on trend for a season dedicated to pumpkin spice and apple harvest.

Great Durban

If high-octane strains dominate your stash, Supa Durban will be your brisk fall wake-and-bake go-to. The strain is a Haze crossed variation of an already fiery landrace sativa, so users should expect a bright-eyed head high and a blood-pumping body stone. Pro tip: Use this strain with intention. It has a strong “clean up your bathroom” vibe that might leave unprepared smokers feeling sore. Take it slow and have some crayons ready.

Zuyaqui is a sleepier strain that delivers strong, calming body highs and a cashmere fuzz behind the eyes. Bred from a cross of gentle hybrids Dogwalker and Horchata, Zuyaqui expresses her genetics with a daydreaming start that fades into a velvety body high. Users describe classic stoner effects like heavy eyelids, reckless snacking, and Netflix to nap-style relaxation. Stoners who herald the arrival of fall because you’re going to work and coming home in the dark, Zuyaqui might be the perfect strain to kick back and detach from.
