YGMarijuana is early fully accepted by society these days. In most states, medical marijuana dispensaries are everywhere. And, of course, hip-hop stars have their patient cards so they may take part in its availability.

However, not many rappers can boast what Compton newcomer YG has recently done, which is launch his own strain of weed.

The rapper, best known for his hit single "Toot It and Boot It," has been promoting his own branded marijuana strain called "YG OG," which he created alongside an Orange Country, California dispensary called Green Aid.

"Having my own weed makes me feel like the motherf***in'," YG said in a statement. "It gets you higher than every other weed."

Apparently, the idea of "YG OG" came about following a chance meeting with Green Aid's general manager, Brooks Johnson, who mashed out a deal to carry the strain exclusively at their dispensary, located in Anaheim, California.

According to Johnson, since Green Aid became carrying YG OG, it's been in non-stop demand.

"As soon as we featured the new YG OG medicine it became an overnight demand amongst our patients," said Johnson, who revealed that the store has already sold out, although new product would be back on shelves in two weeks.
