Usain Bolt has a marijuana strand named after him: ‘Usain Bolt OG’

Usain Bolt is one of the fastest runners to ever live. Typically runners who are competing in a sprint against him know they have no chance. While you may not ever be able to smoke Bolt on the track, the good news is people now have an opportunity to actually smoke him.

According to, California marijuana dispensaries have been selling a strand of weed called “Usain Bolt OG” since the Olympics began. If the story sounds familiar, it may be because California weed shops were selling a strand of weed named after Jeremy Lin not too long ago. We saw what unfolded to result in that product being¬†taken off the market, so it will be interesting to see if the Usain Bolt weed has the same fate.

One Mary Jane shop employee said the weed was named after Bolt because it is so “fast-hitting.” Isn’t that clever? Attention Olympic athletes: you can’t smoke this weed just because it’s named after one of your fellow competitors. As we have already learned, blaming a failed drug test on a pot brownie will earn you no sympathy.
