New Strain Of Marijuana Named After Usain Bolt Is Flying Off Pot Dispensary Shelves

Usain Bolt OG pot is a new strain of marijuana which is allegedly so fast-hitting that it just had to be named in honor of the fastest man in the world. California medical marijuana dispensaries are struggling to keep the Usain Bolt OG marijuana in stock and have reportedly sold a multitude of the cannabis since the London Olympics began, according to TMZ.

The Usain Bolt marijuana strain is not the only Olympic tie-in available to the medical cannabis community in California. A pot strain named after United States judo fighter Nick Delpopolo will soon be available for consumption for weed prescription holders. The marijuana baked goods line will of course include pot brownies.

Triple Olympic gold medal winner Usain Bolt admitted to experimenting with marijuana as a youth in Jamaica, The Telegraph notes. During an interview with the Bild German newspaper, Usain Bolt stated that children growing up in Jamaica learn how to roll a joint.

“Everyone tried marijuana, including me, but I was really young. Nobody in my family or those close to me smoke and I don’t hang out with people who smoke,” Usain Bolt told Bild.

California marijuana dispensaries also introduced a strain of medical pot after Jeremy Lin not long ago, but it did not remain on the cannabis market long, Larry Brown Sports reports. The Usain Bolt OG pot was not named after the Olympic athlete to further a Jamaican stereotype but to honor both the runner and the marijuana which are apparently linked together by their winning speed and ability to achieve desired goals.
