Celebrate 10 Famous 4/20 Birthdays With These Strain Pairings

It’s 4/20! We took some famous folks who call April 20 their birthday, wrote them down, and assigned them a strain of their very own. Who did we forget?

Jessica Lange

Jessica Lange

Everyone’s favorite ageless witch celebrates 67 today. There were rumors that she and Sarah Paulson used drugs on the set of American Horror Story as part of a scene in the second season, but the rumors are unconfirmed.

Strain: DEADHEAD OG 

Whether you’re binge-watching past seasons of American Horror Story or watching a happy classic like Big Fish, we recommend a solid hybrid like Deadhead OG. This will allow you to stay focused on the plot while still relaxing and enjoying the show.

George Takei

George Takei

George Takei may remain mum on his own cannabis admissions, but he praised Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his admission to using cannabis and, let’s face it, Takei is a pro at making cannabis jokes. Oh myyyy!

Strain: FRUITY PEBBLES

For maximum enjoyment of the giggles that are so often associated with the Artist Formerly Known As Sulu, we recommend the eternally giggly Fruity Pebbles.

Killer Mike

Killer Mike

Finally! A celebrity with a canna-connection! Killer Mike is no stranger to cannabis, having smoked a joint live on air with Bill Maher while talking politics and legalization with fellow cannabis advocate, Margaret Cho.

Strain: CHERRY PIE

Killer Mike doesn’t mess with pure indicas or sativas, and his doctor told him to stay away from edibles, so he is strictly a hybrid man. Considering his musical endeavors, we think he’d lean towards a potent hybrid like Cherry Pie to keep the creative juices flowing onstage while maintaining a heady high throughout the show.

Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover has had a wide and weird career with plenty of ties to cannabis — he performed in the movie Mr. Nice, based on Britain’s “nicest drug smuggler.” He also played a cannabis consumer opposite Keanu Reeves in the long-forgotten film, River’s Edge. No word on whether he partakes.

Strain: KUATO

We’re going with a strange and unique strain to complement the odd and fantastic qualities of Glover’s. This strain will open your mind to new possibilities and it also makes a fantastic addition to rewatching the timeless classic Back to the Future.

Luther Vandross

Luther Vandross

Luther Vandross admitted he never used cannabis during his time on earth, but that shouldn’t stop you from partaking while listening to a little “A House is Not a Home” on the record player. His voice is like butter, and cannabis just enhances it.

Strain: MERCURY OG

We recommend a deep indica to get you in the mood to truly appreciate the silky voice of the Vandross. You’ll met into the couch and find yourself cruising through outer space with smooth jams.

Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick

Danica Patrick is far too responsible and cautious of a driver to use cannabis (at least not near the track), but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy watching her put her bad-ass racing skills to the test.

Strain: JACK HERER

For maximum enjoyment and to make you feel like a racecar superstar, we recommend the classic, tried-and-true pure sativa strain Jack Herer. We don’t know Danica, but we think she’d appreciate this strain for its energetic, uplifting properties.

Joey Lawrence

Joey Lawrence

WHOA! This ’90s heartthrob doesn’t have any clear connection to cannabis, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little while indulging in a little blast-from-the-past ’90s action.

Strain: AMNESIA

Our choice for a ’90s marathon — including the entire series of Blossom, a few episodes of Brotherly Love, and. why not, throw in a screening of A Goofy Movie for good measure — goes to the uplifting and giggly sativa, Amnesia. You’ll be laughing so hard, you’ll have to stop and just say “WHOA.”

Andy Serkis

Andy Serkis

This anthropomorphic character actor is a jack of all creatures. From a fallen hobbit to a space alien to a leader of apes and everything in between, the man’s facial skill alone deserves a toke in his honor.

Strain: SPACE QUEEN

Take a trip to another world with the sublimely pleasing Space Queen. You’ll be blasted off into space but drift gently back down afterwards. It’s a perfect strain for watching an energetic film like the most recent Star Wars film, in which Serkis’ entirely CGI-animated character, Supreme Leader Snoke, plays a pivotal role.

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra is the queen of terribly campy films, and while her resume reads like a list of Razzie rejections, there’s absolutely no reason you can’t put on a couple of these silly flicks and laugh your heart out.

Strain: LAUGHING BUDDHA

For a case of the breathless giggles, our vote goes to the one and only, Laughing Buddha. Turn your brain off, turn Scary Movie or Baywatch and prepare yourself for some campy delight. This bright sativa is certain to keep you from taking anything too seriously and you might even get an ab workout from all the giggles.

Clint Howard

Clint Howard

Ron Howard’s former child star baby brother, blessed with an adorable face as a child, Clint Howard is actually a decent actor, not to mention a solid filmmaker.

Strain: APOLLO 13

What else? It’s the peppery hybrid strain inspired by the groundbreaking and forever entertaining film. The film about the failed moon landing is still a nail-biter (even though you know the ending) and remains a classic, withstanding the test of time.
