Whether you’re a Star Wars fanatic or not, you’re probably familiar with May the Fourth, a grassroots holiday playing on Obi-Wan Kenobi’s famous line “May the Force be with you” to honor George Lucas’s legacy series you either love to love, or love to deny that you love. Either way, May the Fourth is the day to be unapologetically vocal of your love for Star Wars–and what better way to do that than by smoking weed?
In honor of the sacred holiday and beloved space opera, cultivators all over the world have used this as inspiration to birth strains named after popular characters and concepts based on the brand.
Here are all of the recognized Star Wars strains, and the effects to expect when you embark on your journey to a figurativ galaxy far, far away.
One of the most iconic Star Wars strains is its namesake, Starwarz. Founded by Magus Genetics in Holland, this indica-dominant hybrid was created from Warlock and Sensi Star.
However, if you’re looking to try this strain, you’re out of luck, unless you happen to be in Amsterdam. The Bluebird Coffeeshop is the only place in the world that carries it. But maybe this is just an excuse for you and your friends to embark on a Star Wars-themed tour of Europe one day…
- Yoda OG
Named after the legendary Jedi Master, Yoda OG is another incredibly popular Star Wars-themed strain. Yoda is small in size but powerful and full of wisdom, which is exactly how Yoda OG will make you feel.
A descendant of OG Kush, this indica-heavy hybrid strain will have you feeling incredibly relaxed, euphoric, and inspired–but it also kicks up the munchies and may render you to the couch for the evening, so proceed with caution.
- Han Solo Burger
Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. Han Solo is everyone’s favorite rebel, and the cannabis industry is full of rebel respectors. Thus Han Solo Burger was born, a strain as potent as it is beautiful in color.
The strain was birthed by Skunk House Genetics, a cross between GMO Cookies and Larry OG. Han Solo Burger has incredibly sedative effects, so make sure you aren’t planning on fighting the Empire after puffing on some of this.
- Darth Vader OG
Mysterious and misunderstood, there’s one thing for certain about Darth Vader: he has some of the most heavily-labored breathing in all of the galaxy. The Sith Lord (a.k.a. Anakin Skywalker) is known for being dark and cold, and Darth Vader OG will definitely emulate that.
Another heavy indica strain, Darth Vader OG is a true “purple” with deep violet hues and powerfully sedative effects. Puff on some before bed for the most relaxing night of sleep you’ve ever had.
- Purple Skywalker/Skywalker OG
The Skywalkers are the most legendary family of the Star Wars franchise, full of bravery, strength, and compassion. Purple Skywalker (or Skywalker OG–we’ve heard it referred to as both) is one of the most legendary purple OGs in the cannabis community, and it may just give you what it takes to go against the grain, just like a Skywalker.
A hybrid combination of Skywalker and OG Kush, this strain encourages ultimate relaxation and release–the freedom to be entirely yourself.
- OG 1 Kenobi
This strain is a fitting tribute to the OG Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Punningly named, OG 1 Kenobi is dark, mystifying, and indica-dominant–enough for you to start going by Ben, too.
OG 1 Kenobi is powerfully sedative and mentally stimulating. You might start thinking you’re Force-sensitive after puffing on this strain.
- Death Star
A powerful hybrid made of Sensi Star and Sour Diesel, Death Star is extremely fragrant and packs a punch almost strong enough to destroy a planet.
The effects tend to take a little longer to settle in for this strain, but once they do, you’ll be out for the night.
The possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,721, and perhaps even more so after you’ve puffed on some C-3PO. Named after the famously sassy droid, this strain is sativa-dominant and originated in Humboldt County.
This strain is both relaxing and mentally stimulating without too much of the high–it’s quite low in THC (less than 1%), and most consumers turn to it for its CBD healing properties.
- Master Jedi
Named for the Knights of the Jedi Order, Master Jedi is another popular strain for Star Wars aficionados. Pure indica, Master Jedi is an elite combination of Master Kush and Jedi Kush.
Consumers tend to feel a full-body high when they experience Master Jedi, the Force coursing through their veins. It’s been reported to be specifically effective for anyone suffering from muscle spasms or tension.
Ewoks are the cutest mammaloid bipeds in the Star Wars universe. They’re as courageous as they are small and furry, sort of like the strain named after them, Ewok.
With short, furry red hairs and citrus-y, earthy Kush notes, Ewok is indica-dominant and ideal for anti-inflammation or pain reduction.
- Chewbacca OG
Chewbacca OG is an incredibly rare indica-dominant strain, also known as Chewbacca Kush or Chewy’s OG. Christened after the famous Wookie himself, this strain packs a hardcore high that leaves consumers stoned for hours.
There aren’t too many reviews on this strain as it’s still quite hard to find, but it’s definitely worth it if you can get your hands on some.
R2-D2 is the most iconic astromech droid from Queen Padmé Amidala’s Naboo Royal Starship, and R2-D2 the strain is one of the most iconic Afghan hybrids in the industry. It’s got potent citrusy notes and is ideal for anyone looking to concentrate and relax simultaneously.
- Jawa Kush
Jawa Kush (a.k.a. Jawa OG) is an indica-dominant combination of Ghost OG and Jawa Pie. This strain has beautiful coloring and is the perfect way to celebrate the sentient humanoids.
Its effects are potent, like most of the Star Wars strains, and delivers you with a high so dreamy and out of this world, you’ll be consumed by your own artistic and beautiful thoughts.
