Celebrities endorse everything from cereal to lip balm to cat food, there’s nothing they won’t put their face on to earn an extra dollar. It should come as no surprise that some celebrities even lend their names to cannabis strains, essentially becoming immortalized through a plant. Some of these A-list cannabis connoisseurs even helped to cultivate these strains, ensuring only the finest product carries their name. The next time you’re looking to get lifted to the stars, try one of these 10 weed strains named after celebs.
1. Barack Obama
Our latest President might not have been able to approve cannabis on a federal level, but most of the cannabis community approves of him, considering he’s aided by more advances for the medical marijuana community than any recent president. Obama Kush is an indica strain, great for helping people relax after a long day of decision making.
2. Blue Ivy Carter
She’s really not a celebrity yet, but Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter will undoubtedly achieve fame someday. Having a cannabis strain named after you at just four-years-old can’t hurt your credit either. This strain is simply called Blue Ivy, a hybrid that’s sure to help smokers hit all the highest notes.
3. Charlie Sheen
Everyone’s favorite bad boy is definitely winning with this strain, named only Charlie Sheen. The strain is a crossbreed between Green Crack, Blue Dream and OG Kush. While the strain is a hybrid, the effects are said to be calming and relaxing, meaning it’s an indica-dominant hybrid. Perhaps smoking some of this could help the real Charlie Sheen mellow out a bit.
4. Margaret Cho
She might be a well-known actress and comedian, but she’s also an outspoken cannabis activist and entrepreneur, who loves to experiment with new and exciting strains. Her strain has been named Margaret Cho-G, and is said to leave users giggly and excited for the entire smoke session.
5. Marshawn Lynch
This retired Seattle Seahawk might own an athletic boutique now, but his nickname on the field, Beastmode, hasn’t given in to early retirement, although it could just be here so it doesn’t get fined. A hybrid named Beastmode OG and an indica named Beastmode 2.0 complete this ex-football player’s portfolio.
6. Michael Phelps
When you’ve publicly condoned cannabis use, but continue to add to your 18 Olympic gold medals, there’s nothing you can’t do. Michael Phelps is one of the world’s best athletes, and he also happens to love cannabis. His hybrid strain is affectionately named Michael Phelps OG. Remember, smoking and swimming could be dangerous, or it could lead to gold medals. Take your chances.
7. Snoop Dogg
When you’ve cultivated an entire line of cannabis strains, you’re bound to name at least one after yourself. The Dogg Father, being the King of Cannabis, has two strains named after himself, a hybrid called Snoop’s Dream and a strong indica called Snoop Dogg OG.
8. Stevie Wonder
This iconic music legend created tunes that uplifted listeners and brought smiles to their faces. The sativa-dominant hybrid named Stevie Wonder leaves smokers feeling the same way. A mixture of Blueberry, Bubba Kush, Sensi Star and Trainwreck combine perfectly to create large, crystal-covered buds that deliver a powerful high.
9. Tiger Woods
He might not be playing too much golf anymore, but once upon a time, Tiger was the best in the game, never leaving fans disappointed. His rare namesake hybrid strain, Tiger Woods, doesn’t disappoint either. With a low THC content, between 10-15%, this strain is perfect for beginner smokers and those who want a minimal high, but still need to the effects.
10. Tommy Chong
Of course, the original cannabis crusader has a strain named after himself! Chong Star is a hybrid strain, only manufactured by Marisol Therapeutics in Pueblo, Colorado. While the buds might be rare, the high is said to leave smokers feeling completely elevated, with an out-of-this-world high.
The strain is said to be balanced so well that it’s neither sativa nor indica dominant, but rather a perfectly married coupling of the two.
