Olympian Usain Bolt, one of the fastest runners in the world, has a strain named after him that has become extremely popular in California medical marijuana dispensaries. It is simply named “Usain Bolt OG.” The strain was named after the Olympic medal-winning athlete in order to honor the runner. Its name also implies the apparent speedy potency of the new strain.
Bolt, who has won three gold medals, admitted to trying marijuana in the past. “Everyone tried marijuana, including me, but I was really young. Nobody in my family or those close to me smokes and I don’t hang out with people who smoke,” he proclaimed.
Also in the works is a marijuana strain named after American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo, who tested positive for cannabis and was disqualified by The International Olympic Committee. The line of edible products with Delpopolo’s name on it will also include brownies, of course.
