You know that old saying, "You're nobody 'til somebody loves you"? Well, in today's sports world, you're nobody until somebody names a strain of marijuana after you. Seriously. Everyone from Jeremy Lin to the Manning brothers have had a strain named after them in the past. And recently, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch became the latest athlete to have a strain of weed named after him when somebody created a strain called—what else?—"Beast Mode."
The marijuana was created by a medical marijuana dispensary in Seattle called the Queen Anne Cannabis Club. And as you would probably imagine, the Marshawn Lynch brand of weed is very, very, very potent. Much like Lynch himself, it starts off a little slow. But within just a few minutes, it's guaranteed to smack you across the face.
"It's extremely strong," Queen Anne Cannabis Club owner Nate "Diggity" Johnson told the Seattle Times recently. "Marshawn has gears when he's running and it's kind of like that. It has a little bit of a slow start and then kicks in."
Weirdly, the strain of weed was going to be called "Girl Scout Cookies" when it was originally created. But the first time Johnson tried it, he realized that the name was not appropriate, given how strong the weed was.
"It hit me like Beast Mode," he said.
