Rise of the ‘Star Wars’ stoners


Two weeks ago, in preparation for May 4, aka “Star Wars” day, my friends set out on a mission to find the most “Star Wars”-themed cannabis products possible. Their excursion took them to JARS Cannabis, Herbana and Pure Options Frandor. Before they settled in for their 25-hour movie marathon — in chronological order, of course — I stopped by to see their spoils. After some dedicated research, here are my findings about each product.

Spaceman Cannabis - Baby Yoda | $25/3.5g at JARS Cannabis

Baby Yoda, otherwise known as Grogu by fans of “The Mandalorian,” is a cross between Khalifa Kush and The Menthol. It’s one of the 120+ strains in Spaceman Cannabis’ library. Upon opening the bag, I was greeted by light green buds that were covered in orange and yellow hairs and smelled of mint and pepper. After one bowl, I felt more than ready to settle into my couch and watch every film in the “Star Wars” franchise. (Except “Return of the Jedi” — legends never die.)

Goodlyfe Farms - Skywalker OG infused pre-roll | $10/g at JARS Cannabis

Hailing from a galaxy far, far away from the 517, Lawrence-based Goodlyfe Farms specializes in organic, sun-grown cannabis. Its concentrate-infused pre-roll line features more than 15 strains, with the joints testing between 34% and 48% THC. Skywalker OG is named after the Tatooine farmboy turned legendary Jedi, Luke Skywalker. This indica-dominant hybrid is heavy in myrcene and caryophyllene terpenes, which makes it a perfect choice for stress and pain relief. 

Cloud Cover Cannabis - Wookie Girl ‘91 budder | $15/g at JARS Cannabis

Wookie Girl ‘91 is an indica-dominant hybrid that’s a cross between Wookies 91 and Valley Girl. This floral yet gassy strain placed second in the Recreational Indica Flower category in Michigan’s 2021 High Times Cannabis Cup. The concentrate is thick and golden, and it has a hint of raspberry flavor when dabbed. It’s a great choice for folks looking to unwind after a long day. 

Skunk House Genetics x ProGro - Han Solo Burger hash hole joint | $50/2g at Pure Options 

Out of all the weed my friends got during their escapades, this product was the most sought-after. Skunkmasterflex, the founder of Skunk House Genetics, first started growing medical-use cannabis in Michigan back in 2005. Since then, Skunk House’s Burger strains have become staples in the stash jars of stoners around the state. This collaboration with ProGro is top-notch: Each joint boasts a whopping 2 grams of cannabis and a hash rosin center, sometimes referred to as a hash hole. The combination of cannabis flower and concentrate creates a more potent and flavorful experience. Han Solo Burger, a cross between GMO Cookies and Larry OG, is downright funky and will make you feel as stoned as carbonite. 

ProGro - Planet Purple | $25/3.5g at Pure Options Frandor

During the Clone Wars, an unidentified purple planet served as the battleground between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic. Perhaps they were fighting over this fruity beauty? This indica-dominant strain is a cross between multiple parents: Sunset Sherbert x Do-Si-Dos, aka Sherbidos, and Zkittlez x Do-Si-Dos, aka Moonbow #75. When smoked, Planet Purple creates a euphoric body buzz that’s guaranteed to take you to another planet.

Northwoods Cultivation - Space Runtz | $25/3.5g or $280/2.5oz at Pure Options Frandor

Traverse City-based Northwoods Cultivation prides itself on being a community-driven company with roots in the Michigan cannabis industry. Its Space Runtz, bred by Tiki Madman, is a cross between Runtz and Candy Rain that tastes like violets and pears, rounded out by an earthy flavor. Smoking a joint of this strain creates an uplifted and relaxed vibe that makes Jar Jar Binks’ shenanigans even funnier. 

Freshy Fine - Motorbreath moon rocks | $18/g at Herbana 

Freshy Fine’s moon rocks are a labor of love. They’re created by taking a nug of weed and rolling it in full-spectrum cannabis oil, which is different from distillate. After an even coat of oil is applied to the nug, it’s then rolled in kief. The same cannabis strain is typically used for the flower, distillate and kief so consumers can enjoy the strain’s various effects. Whether you crumble a little bit on top of a bowl or pack it into a joint, you will definitely feel how potent the Force is with this product.
