What Should I Bring On My First Boston Cannabis Dispensary Trip?August 28, 2023
It’s finally time—you’ve thought about going to a cannabis dispensary. Now, you have committed to the trip and picked your location. What comes next? If...
Cannabis is becoming more popular among the average person, but much of this popularity began when marijuana products entered the public eye in the entertainment sector. Celebrities across genres and arts have enjoyed cannabis for years, and their favorite varieties can inspire you to branch out and try something new.
Here are some of the most notoriously cannabis-favorable celebrities, as well as their favorite celebrity weed strains, and what you can expect if you try them out.
Few people have been enjoying marijuana for as long as Willie Nelson; he’s been a big fan since 1954 and has kept up with the hobby ever since. His part in advocacy and the push for legalization has had a significant impact, and he’s happy to talk about cannabis whenever he gets the chance.
Nelson is so enthusiastic about marijuana that he cultivated a strain he felt was right for him—appropriately named Willie Nelson. This Sativa-forward hybrid is his favorite variant, and those who try it for themselves typically experience a burst of creativity and euphoria. The strain won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2005 and continues to be a fan favorite.
When people think of blunts, Snoop Dogg comes to mind. At the peak of his career, he regularly smoked more than 50 blunts daily. Snoop’s tastes vary, and he enjoys a few picks among his top strains.
These include GSC, or Girl Scout Cookies, a hybrid but Indica-forward variety that creates intense euphoria before softening into complete relaxation. He also favors Private Reserve OG, sometimes called OG #18. This also produces a relaxed effect, characteristic of what Snoop Dogg prefers in his cannabis.
This comedy duo has started their own cannabis company because they’re passionate about the hobby. As part of their flash of inspiration to delve further into the marijuana trade, they developed a unique Sativa-dominant hybrid called Durban Haze, which they still enjoy today.
At 90% Sativa genetically, this strain can hit hard with a heady energy that most people report as motivating and creative. However, take advantage of that motivation while it lasts. Durban Haze quickly transitions into an unfocused, relaxed experience best reserved for calm nights on the couch with a movie and some snacks.
Seth Rogen is a Canadian actor who makes films and shares comedy shows. He’s been a fan of cannabis for much of his adult life, and he eagerly shares his two favorite strains: 91 Krypt and Chemdawg. Both of these options produce a euphoric, happy headspace that lasts longer than average and helps people relax after a busy or stressful day.
Those considering a foray into 91 Krypt should start with a low dose because with a 20% to 25% ratio of THC, this strain can hit hard and stick around. Both varieties leave a characteristic chemical exhale behind. They are best enjoyed in private, where the smell is not a concern.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa has made his love of cannabis no secret over the years. He’s collaborated with cannabis companies to create the ideal blend to share with the world, which has led him to his top choice for weed strains: his very own Khalifa Kush.
You can find this variety under the alternate name Wiz Khalifa OG. Small samples are encouraged to start because at a whopping 27% THC, this Indica-forward variant will pack a massive punch that brings on powerful relaxation and keeps you glued to the couch.
Rumors claim that Angelina Jolie called it quits on Brad Pitt because of his marijuana hobby, and while there’s no way to know for sure, what Pitt has always been transparent about is the strains he loves the most.
Like Snoop Dogg, Pitt enjoys Girl Scout Cookies, though he takes frequent forays into Sour Diesel and Bubba Kush. Sour Diesel comes from a hybridization of Chemdawg—a favorite of Seth Rogen—and creates the energetic, talkative, and buzzy experience associated with the strain.
Branching out can be exciting and intimidating, especially in the world of cannabis. One of the easiest places to start is to learn what others enjoy, and these celebrity favorites are popular for a reason.
