Cannabis strains come with a vast range of names, with some of these named after real life people. You typically need to be an important figure to have marijuana strains named after you. These strains in our list do not have any direct relation to the people they are named after other than they share the same name.
Let’s go over some of the most popular of these strains.
King Tut is perhaps the most well-known ancient Egyptian ruler that was only a young boy when he ascended to the throne. He is well known today because his tomb was discovered early this century and contained a trove of treasures.
The King Tut weed strain gets its name from the ancient Egyptian ruler Tutankhamun. As mysterious as the pharaoh from long ago, its parentage is unknown. It comprises 80% Sativa and 20% Indica and comes from the AK-47 strain. It is pretty powerful, with a THC level between 25-30%.
The King Tut cannabis strain is not for those looking for a good night’s sleep. Instead, this rare strain offers energy and focuses perfectly for use during the day. It will aid you in getting things done and keep you socially involved during events. The giggles are a given as it boosts your mood.
Helpful with inflammation, nausea, chronic panic pain, depression, stress. The King Tut marijuana strain offers citrus and earthy flavour and floral smell.
The high fashion Tom Ford cannabis strain is sometimes known as the Tom Ford Pink Kush and is a rare breed achieved by crossing the Death Bubba and Pink Kush strains. It can reach THC levels ranging from 23% to 25% and has a genuinely gorgeous visual appearance. The Tom Ford weed strain has small and rounded forest-green buds with pinkish-purple undertones and feature pink-orange hairs. Its sheer beauty, combined with citrus and honey aroma, makes for a true feast for the senses and an ideal kickback after a stressful day.
The Tom Ford marijuana strain’s high THC levels make it ideal for recreational and medical uses. The strain effectively reduces pain, induces appetite, and brings feelings of deep relaxation. That makes it practical to treat stress disorders, depression, chronic fatigue, and anxiety. Tom Ford can also help treat headaches, inflammation and chronic pain.
The Jean Guy marijuana strain is a phenotype of White Widow, which originated in Quebec, Canada. Jean Guy weed strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with a ratio of 40:60 Indica to Sativa and an average THC level ranging from 14%-24%. It has a sour citrus aroma plus a solid and powerful effect on the brain. This strain has dark-green leaves frosted with pastel buds underneath that are bristling with golden crystals. The Jean Guy weed strain holds a lemon and pine flavour that uplifts you while tingling your taste buds. Depending on this strain’s batch, it can have a smell that’s earthy, citrus, pine, or sweet. There’s no doubt that you’ll find its flavour delightful long after exhaling.
The Jean Guy cannabis strain will give you a strong kick and a buzzing cerebral high, followed by an uplifted mood and euphoric feeling. Your imaginative thinking will get quite the boost as well before the Indica side slides in. Once this happens, feelings of intense relaxation will take over, and you’ll be drowning in complete bliss. Apart from the recreational benefits, this strain has even more remarkable benefits for medicinal purposes. Its intense cerebral onset gives full body coordination to attention deficit disorders. Uplifted moods can temporarily divert depression, stress, and anxiety. Furthermore, Jean Guy weed strain is the top choice for cancer symptoms, fibromyalgia, and soothing aches and pains from injuries or chronic illness. Jean Guy has anti-inflammatory properties as well.
A few warnings to note: If you are someone new to cannabis growing, Jean Guy isn’t the right cannabis strain to try. And if you’re a beginner user, use Jean Guy with caution to prevent harmful effects that can come with it. So take notice, but don’t turn away from this one-of-a-kind Sativa hybrid!
Dank Sinatra is a fun play on words for weed-lovers who also are fans of the crooner Frank Sinatra. This strain is music to the ears of Sinatra lovers and the high end qualities of these buds would make Frank proud.
The Dank Sinatra cannabis strain crosses the Hash plant with the LA Affie strain. The result is a highly potent Indica-dominant hybrid, which can reach an impressive 33% THC level, and is ideal for more experienced cannabis users. The Dank Sinatra weed strain has a balance of 70% Indica and 30% Sativa. Its exceptional aroma permeates with hints of citrus and earthy tones, with dark and fluffy buds, which are highly frosted with a layer of trichomes.
Due to its high THC levels, the Dank Sinatra marijuana strain gives way to numerous medical applications. For example, its euphoric effects work well to counteract stress disorders and depression. In contrast, its highly relaxing and analgesic effects make it ideal for treating chronic pain, nausea, and appetite loss among patients undergoing cancer treatment. The plant can be grown indoors and outdoors but requires enough space to mature to its full size.
Berry White is another cannabis strain that plays on the popular R&B singer Barry White. But instead of soul, you are getting a fruity berry flavour that is music to your ears.
The Berry White cannabis strain is a pure indica strain from two famous parents: Blueberry and White Widow. This intense celebrity strain brings a THC level of 19%-25%, along with evenly balanced effects without inducing a couch-lock that most indica strains tend to do. Berry White has large, popcorn-shaped buds with light olive and deep blue base colours with bright orange hairs and a thick layer of crystal trichomes for contrast. The impactful aroma and flavours this strain holds are blueberry, piney, and floral, with hints of sour lemon and unripe berries.
The smooth smoke-ability of the Berry White weed strain brings a euphoric and relaxing high. As the warm tingle rushes and fills your body, you’ll enter a meditative state while the stimulants begin to kick in. That induces elevated creativity, followed closely by the munchies. This strain’s smooth nature, paired with the effects, makes it a staple in the medicinal world. The Berry White marijuana strain is well known for its healing properties that help combat insomnia and chronic pain. Its sedative properties help tackle body aches and busy minds, allowing for better sleep. This strain has also shown its ability to help treat symptoms of depression, chronic stress, anxiety, and minor cases of PTSD. This celebrity strain lives up to the hype that surrounds it. Berry White never disappoints!
It should be noted that none of these cannabis strains are directly associated with the people they are named after. Instead, they are names given to the strains by cannabis breeders who are likely fans.
