Monica Lewinsky gets a weed strain named after her

A dispensary based in Seattle, WA, has released a new hybrid strain of marijuana to the public aptly named Monica Lewinsky because…well, for obvious reasons.

While Monica Lewinsky has been in and out of the media over the last 20 years, she has been most popular for the first thing that got her into the focus of the media – her involvement in the White House sex scandal during the Clinton administration.

All that might change very soon, as Ms. Lewinsky just got a cannabis strain named after her in Seattle, WA, where recreational cannabis has been legal for a couple of years.

Monica Lewinsky weed strain

Since her involvement in the White House scandal, Ms. Lewinsky has been out and about trying to bring attention to various causes such as bullying and sexual discrimination, but this honor was certainly not something she expected.

Monica Lewinsky tweeted to her followersย that a cannabis company named Sugarleaf has created a strain of marijuana named after her. The strain has over 20% THC contents!

Ms Lewinsky doesn’t admit to smoking or going with the program, as she simply pointed her Twitter followers towards this intriguing find.

Or, perhaps it’s an elaborate promotion strategy, who knows.

Not the first celebrity strain

Many celebrities have marijuana strains dedicated to them, and this has been the case mostly for people who have already been known in the media as marijuana activists, playboys and other.

Here are a couple other celebrities that you probably didn’t know had strains named after them.

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch, better known as Beast Mode, has not on, but two marijuana strains named after him.

The beloved Raiders running back that played for years in Seattle is proud to say that his name is on Beastmode OG, a hybrid strain, and Beastmode 2.0 which is an indicaย strain.

Stevie Wonder

We’re not saying this strain will cure your blindness, but it definitely might make your eyes look slightly more Asian.

The Sativa-dominant hybrid named Stevie Wonder leaves smokers some type of way as they smoke away on this mix of Blueberry, Bubba Kush, Sensi Star and Trainwreck.

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen has been one of the hottest actors in the early 2000’s, so much so that at one point he was being paid a million dollars per episode of Two and a Half Men.

The Holywood playboy-named weed strain is mix ofย Green Crack, Blue Dream and OG Kush, and although it is a hybrid strain, it is very indica heavy and gives users a nice body high.

Charlie sure could have used some of his own weed during his meltdown a few years ago.

Michael Phelps

Did you know Michael Phelps, one of the best Olympians ever to compete, has smoked a little bit of weed here and there? Did you also know he has a strain named after him?

The weed-related incident back in 2009 made everyone take a second look at marijuana as a banned substance.

Michaels strain is a hybrid strain that carries OG Kush genetics and mainly makes its users relaxed.

Barack Obama

President Obama not only inhaled during his college years, and became the president that really made a push for legalizing and decriminalizing marijuana, but he also has a strain named after him.

Obama Kush is a purely indica strain, meaning that this weed will make you as laidback as the last president of the US.
