Buckeye Relief took a lot of flack early on for brittle bud. While most patients who vaporize (per law) didn’t notice this, a handful of early Buckeye Relief cannabis harvests resulted in a quick-burning experience when smoked. This issue can be solved easily at home by placing one or two Boveda humidity packs in your cannabis container. This ensures a softer, less brittle bud.
As a patient, I found my anxieties to be almost immediately tempered. This sativa strain also gave me a lot of energy, and increased my productivity overall. Within minutes, I wanted to dance, exercise, write, work, hike .. you name it!
Notable Terpenes: Myrcene, Limonene, Pinene
Recently, they’ve been selling a few strains, notably Grapefruit Sour Dream and Inception, in bulk containers that hold 14.15g of medical cannabis. Even better, their bulk containers are (as of this writing) $150, which ends up being about $100 less than what you’d pay if you bought 5 individual 2.83g bottles.
Buckeye Relief is located in Eastlake, Ohio, just outside Cleveland. They’ve been around since the program’s launch, and have been serving Ohio medical marijuana patients longer than most cultivators in the state.
With strong undercurrents that smell like red wine, this strain is simply divine to inhale. It’s sweet, strong, and carries a powerful pine scent that perfectly complements the fruity notes. This strain isn’t overly intoxicating, nor is the diesel smell too distracting, though. And it does not have that sickly sweet candy smell that some fruity strains can sometimes have. Rather, Grapefruit Sour Dream is exactly that — like a calm summer dream about a vineyard of fresh grapefruit trees.
That said, this sativa strain did not do much for my arthritic pain, nor did it help very much with inflammation. Indica strains tend to help best with problems like those, but some sativa strains can be very effective as well. This isn’t necessarily one of those strains. I did, however, notice that the neuropathy in my toes subsided during the experience.

The large black container is something of an improvement over Buckeye Relief’s smaller bottles, which look like the old bottles you’d store a roll a film in, or diabetic test strip bottles. This container is more like a hand cream container, but with an easy-to-open pop top. Just a gentle squeeze and the top opens. The container can be a little difficult to keep closed, though.
