Despite Carrie Fisher’s recent acknowledgment of cocaine on the set of The Empire Strikes Back, we’re pretty sure that everyone on the right side of the Force would tell you to just say no to drugs. (With the exception of Han Solo, who’d probably tell you to just say no to smuggling drugs on any ship other than the Millennium Falcon.)

However, if you were a medicinal marijuana patient in Southern California in 2010, then chances are your dreadlocked “budtender” sent you home with at least a gram of Skywalker OG. (We’d like to see Lucasfilm deal with THAT little nug of copyright infringement!)

More Star Wars

In fact, throughout 2010, a slew of Star Wars-themed strains of cannabis were circulating throughout California, most of them ending with OG, a reference to the fact that they’re crossed with Ocean-Grown Kush, a particularly potent strain of the famed Afghani marijuana.

As it turns out, Star Wars and cannabis have gone hand in hand for decades. Yeah, don’t act like you’re surprised. For your consumption—but only if you’re a card-carrying patient—we present these 20 different varieties of marijuana named inspired by Star Wars.

1. Starwarz

A long time ago, in a Dutch city far, far away .

Bud fact: “Starwarz” is what Gerrit, founder of Holland-based Magus Genetics, named his cross between the Sensi Star and Warlock strains (Star-War, get it?).

2. Skywalker

Bud fact: The Dutch Passion Seed Company (the same Amsterdam company responsible for the “Strawberry Cough” strain Michael Caine grew in Children of Men) crossed two of its award-winning strains to produce Skywalker, which it hoped would be “one of the best indicas in the world.”

3. Skywalker OG

Dude, where’s my X-wing?

Bud fact: One of the more prevalent strains in California at the moment is Skywalker OG, which is Skywalker crossed with a OG Kush.

4. Purple Skywalker

“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some . yeah, err . power converters!”
“You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done.”

Bud fact: Skywalker was also crossed with Purple Kush to create, you guessed it, Purple Skywalker.

5. Master OG Wan Kenobi

Help me, Obi Wan, you’re my only toke.

Bud fact: This cross between Master Kush and Skywalker OG hybrid was sold as the “Special Reserve” bud at California Caregivers Alliance in 2010.

6. Yoda OG, 7. OG Master Yoda, 8. Yoda’s Breath

Doobie or doobie not, there is no try.

Bud Fact: We’ve also heard of OG Master Yoda and Yoda’s Breath, but, as near as we can tell, they’re names for the same strain.

9. Jedi OG

Succumb to the power of the Dankside!

10. Han Solo OG

“What an incredible smell you’ve discovered!”

How’s this for a scruffy-looking nerfherder: According to Strainreviews.net, Han Solo OG has “a little bit of a cat piss smell odor to it” and “tasted a bit like a burnt match.”

11. Chewbacca

Bud fact: According to the UrbanDictionary.com Chewbacca is “Very high strain of marijuana that some don’t even consider to be part of the Cannabis family it’s so potent.” There seems to be little evidence that such a strain exists, though in 2006 one grower named his home-grown hybrid “Chewbacca” on account of how hairy the nugs are. A “Chewie” is also a joint laced with cocaine.

12. DarkSide (Granddaddy Purps)

13. Darth Vader

I find your lack of rolling papers disturbing.

14. Death Star

It’s as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced . but in a good way.

Bud fact: According to Colorado Alternative Medicine, Death Star’s “fragrant smell translates to its taste as well, and the hits are mind-numbingly dense.”

15. Death Star Hash

It’s unclear whether Death Star Hash is concentrated Death Star, or whether it’s just the Emperor’s second attempt after the ultimate party foul.

16. Jedi Death Star, 17. Jedi Storm Trooper

These aren’t the buds you’re looking for.

18. R2-D2, 19. C-3PO

Luke: This R2 unit has a bad motivator, look!
Uncle Owen: [to Jawa] Hey, what are you trying to push on us?

According to Nature’s Medicine in Boulder, Colo., C-3PO is “was named after its intentions. If you enjoy thinking creatively and want to become an inter-galactic language expert—these buds are for you.” R2-D2 is a hybrid found in Santa Ana, Calif.

20. Jawa

Reportedly bred in the mountains of Colorado, Jawa derives its name from its parents, a Jamaican Pine strain and a Maui Wowie.

Despite Carrie Fisher's recent acknowledgment of cocaine on the set of The Empire Strikes Back, we're pretty sure that everyone on the right side of the Force would tell you to just say "no" to drugs. (With the exception of Han Solo, who'd probably tell you're to just say "no" to smuggling drugs on any ship other than the Millennium Falcon.)

11 ‘Star Wars’ Marijuana Strains Every Fan Needs To Try

2010 may not have been the year we made contact, but it was the year Star Wars OG strains flooded the Cali market. While huge corporations continue to erode everything fun about cannabis culture, including strain names, The Fresh Toast presents some time-honored Star Wars inspired strains, and pipes to smoke them in, in a galaxy not so far, far away.

To simplify things, Indicas primarily influence the body, while Sativas primarily influence the mind.

These are the droids you’re looking for:

C-3PO is a Humboldt County hybrid that was created by Petrolia Farms. This herb has low 1% THC count and high 12-15% CBD count. C-3PO’s levels making it an excellent choice for medical marijuana patients suffering from depression and stress, just like its robotic, neurotic namesake. Once you partoke, you might say, “Thank the maker. This oil bath is going to feel soooo good!” Smoke it in a ceramic C3P0 inspired bong.

R2-D2 Kush is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain, that smells reminiscent of Pine Sol, which come to think of it, is probably what R2-D2 smells like when he needs an oil bath. Smoke it in an R2-D2 inspired dab rig or pipe. Combine your love of Star Wars and Reggae music with the adorable Rasta styled R2-D2 inspired mini dab rig.

Be quite operational when your friends arrive:

Death Star is a fully operational 75/25 Indica dominant hybrid with a high THC content. It is a cross between Sensei Star and Sour Diesel. Just like the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station, this hybrid hits hard, so it is better for evening and nighttime use. Crush it up in a Death Star inspired grinder.

The Skywalker family:

Skywalker was created by the Dutch Passion Seed Company. They crossed two of their award-winning Indicas – Blueberry and Mazar – to produce Skywalker, which they intended to be “one of the best Indicas in the world.”

Skywalker OG is a Sativa dominant, marijuana hybrid. The Kush is highly potent, with THC levels up to 21%, on average.

Skywalker OG Kush (“No. There is another… Sky… walk…errrr.”) is an Indica derived from Skywalker crossed with an OG Kush. Vape it with a Skywalker OG 710 KingPen.

Sour Skywalker (“That name no longer holds any meaning for me.”) is a half and half Sativa/Indica strain. Its ancestry is Sour Diesel crossed with Skywalker OG. This strain is elusive. If you happen to come across some on the outskirts of Anchorhead, on Tatooine, you can smoke it in the lightsaber-themed Evol Vape Kit.

The Jedi Masters:

OG Darth Vader is a strong, Indica marijuana hybrid that induces an intellectual high, combined with an opiate-like body relaxation. The effect is deep and long lasting. Vader relieves stress and insomnia. It also stimulates appetite and helps alleviate nausea. Crush it up in one of these Darth Vader inspired grinders or a and smoke it in a Dark Fader glass pipe or this handmade, Durapox resin-molded Vader pipe.

OG 1 Kenobi is an is an 80/20 Indica-dominant marijuana hybrid, with 18-23% THC levels. It is a cross between Master Kush and Skywalker OG hybrid, and is often mistaken for Skywalker OG. The force is strong with Kenobi. This strain is not for pot padawans. It might knock you out, just like Kenobi knocked out Anakin Skywalker before he fell into the lava pit. Although, if you have serious, chronic pain, you might say, “Help me, OG 1 Kenobi, you’re my only smoke!”

Master Yoda is cross between OG Kush and Master Kush. Yoda is an Indica dominant marijuana hybrid. Meditate on this you will! Smoke it in a hand blown glass Yoda inspired pipe or let four padawans puff the la simultaneously with a Yoda themed, quad tube ceramic bong.

Jedi Kush (aka OG Jedi) is a pure Indica marijuana, with a 2% CBD count and THC levels between 19-25%, on average. Jedi buds are spade-shaped, like Star Destroyers, with orange and purple undertones, like Mace Windu’s lightsaber. The effects are almost comparable to micro-dosing.

Honorable Mention:

Jawa’s name is derived from abbreviating its ancestors, a Jamaican Pine strain and a Maui Wowie. Smoke it in a Jawa-inspired, ceramic pipe.

Here are some of our favorite Star Wars strains and themed pipes to smoke them in…in a galaxy not so far, far away.
