Inside Tweed

Introducing Tweed’s Pop Culture Strain Name Game

This month we’re giving one of our friends or followers a chance to win a great prize pack that includes a Tweed t-shirt, mug, carry-all and more!

To enter all you need do is dig deep into the recesses of your pop culture reference guide, whether it’s enjoying some of our fine strains alongside your favourite music, movies or literature.

What’s the catch? You’ll need to click a couple links. Find a pop cultural connection – faint as it may be – between any strain in the Tweed Shop and a movie, artist, show or band and we’ll enter your name into a hat (hat pictured above) for the draw on February 29. Winner takes all but we’ll shout out every entrant!

You may be wondering what kind of references we’re looking for and which ones we’ve already stumbled across. The answer to the second part of the question is exactly three and the examples we’ve found highlight the kind of thing we’re after for in the Tweed Pop Culture Strain Name Game (long title, getting our friends and followers may even be the next contest!).

More specifically, we of course know that Deep Purple is an English rock band responsible for the 70s anthem “Smoke on the Water.” We know that Michael Caine and Clive Owen smoke Strawberry Cough in Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men. And we also know that Mark Wahlberg gets lyrical when he stumbles across a field of Super Lemon Haze in Ted 2.

Whether you follow us on Twitter or Instagram or you’re a Facebook friend, collect your pop culture references of our strains and get them to us before the end of the month for your chance to win the prize pack. Good luck!
