Marijuana strains named after celebrities are big business because nothing helps you stand out from the crowd like a little branding. While there are a large number of choices available, here is a list of four popular celebrity based weed strains for your enjoyment.
Oh, before we get started, let's take a quick Weed 101 tutorial.
SNOOP DOGG - Snoop Dogg OG
It's hard to have a conversation about cannabis without mentioning Snoop Dogg. The music icon is an evangelist for the modern marijuana movement, even teaming up "Weed Mom" Martha Stewart. on a number of successful ventures.
While he has other cannabis varieties, Snoop Dogg OG is a 70% indica-dominant hybrid strain and contains genetics from Lemon OG and Sour Diesel. What to expect is a strong burst of creativity that ebbs into a balanced focus. Goes well with a little "Gin and Juice."
MARSHAWN LYNCH - Beastmode OG
NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch became a household name playing running back for the Seattle Seahawks, where his on-field tenacity earned him a Super Bowl ring and the nickname 'Beast Mode.'
Lynch's ventures go far beyond football, including including philanthropy, athletic gear and product endorsements. Close to his heart and lifestyle, though, is Lynch's own cannabis brand named Beastmode OG, an indica and sativa hybrid strain with powerful effects. .
The strain itself stays true to its genetics with a pungent, piney aroma that provides a balance between indica and sativa effects. Beastmode OG is a positive mood elevator and provides great relief to stress and body pain.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA - Obama Kush
President Barack Obama Obama revealed, in his memoir "Dreams for My Father" , his cannabis use while growing up in Hawaii. During his successful presidential run in 2006, then Senator Obama was asked if he inhaled marijuana in his youth (remember President Bill Clinton said he tried weed but "never inhaled"). To a room full of reporters, Obama famously responded, "That was the point."
Next stop - The White House!
Obama Kush sets itself apart from other choices because of its cerebral stimulation and incredible rush. This strain is recommended for users looking for a balanced experience and an intense cerebral rush and uplift. Obama Kush is made from flowers that are frosty with a purple hue and reddish hairs, and smokes with a light aroma.
"Change" and "Hope" will seem possible again!!
TOMMY CHONG - CHONG STAR
It would be almost impossible to make this list without a weed named after actor, activist and entrepreneur Tommy Chong. Throughout his career, cannabis and cannabis culture have been fundamentally intertwined with Chong's celebrity status. It should come as no surprise that his strain, Chong Star, is one of the most popular available.
Chong Star, also known as Biesel, is a well-balanced hybrid with a THC content ranging from 17% to 23% ( yeah, that's pretty good!). Chong Star’s buds have a sweet, earthy aroma and give off a smooth, sweet and mellow smoke.
