New Delhi: The fastest man on planet, Usain Bolt, has been bestowed with another honour. This time, the US pot growers have named a strain of marijuana after him. The ‘Usain Bolt OG’ is reportedly being sold at California pot shops.
According to reports, a pot shop in California’s Orange County is offering the “fast-hitting” weed that is named after the Jamaican athlete.
One of the employee of California marijuana dispensary revealed that the weed was named after Bolt because it gives you a buzz in a quick succession, just like Bolt’s speed on the track.
Usain Bolt made waves in 2009 after he admitted to smoking marijuana in his teenage years. In an interview with Bild, he revealed that everyone in Jamaica knows how to roll a joint, including him, but that was in his teens.
He also issued an official apology for copping to pot just days after the interview came out.
