The field now looks like this:

Quick thing: don’t forget to vote on Weedmaps’ Instagram stories. Polls will stay open until Wednesday 4:20 p.m. PST. 

And with that, let’s dive into the final matchup and the last 2 strains remaining.  

(1) OG Kush v. (5) Pineapple Express

And then there were two: OG Kush and Pineapple Express

There really couldn’t be two better representatives of the current weed culture. One is thought to be responsible for the co-evolution of West Coast weed and rap in the 90s. The other serves as the macguffin to what is widely considered the best stoner film of the 2000s. Both have done quite a bit to put weed into the mainstream and have each benefited from the exposure. Given their popularity and place deep within the culture of cannabis, it’s really no surprise to find them in the final matchup. Here is what a co-worker said when we announced the final matchup in Slack: 

“Snicklefritz” is a Dutch term of affection for mischievous children, but it’s also a term James Franco’s character uses for bad weed in the Pineapple Express. Impressively, he’s using a deepcut from Pineapple Express to call OG Kush sub-par … in a matchup against Pineapple Express the strain. Weed culture is beautiful, people. 

As for who will take home the flower crown, it should be a close matchup. Both have performed well, earning the most overall votes. On Instagram polls, OG Kush collected a total of 7,318 votes to Pineapple Express’ 7,092 votes. If total votes is an indicator, OG Kush has a slight edge, but it should come down to the wire. Don’t forget to vote! 

Winner: TBD
