The second round was a bit more predictable, but still saw the loss of some good strains. Check out who got knocked out and light one up for them:
The field now looks like this:
Quick thing: don't forget to vote on Weedmaps' Instagram stories. Polls will stay open until Saturday 4:20 p.m. PST.
And with that, let's dive into the 4 third-round matchups and the 8 strains competing.
(2) Sour Diesel v. (5) Gelato
Sour Diesel squeaked by in the second round. But a win is a win, and it's faced some good competition. Shelf 1 has definitely been the most competitive, and Gelato is one of the most popular strains left in the competition. The winner will have a tough matchup against whoever represents Shelf 2.
(1) OG Kush v. (4) Wedding Cake
And let's face it, OG Kush is going to come out of Shelf 2. No disrespect to Wedding Cake, which is a fine strain, but OG Kush is dominating every matchup. I'd be surprised if it doesn't advance to the Fire Four.
Winner: OG Kush
(8) Jack Herer v. (5) Pineapple Express
Jack Herer is the last wild card strain remaining after Purple Punch had an unfortunate run-in with Sour Diesel. As the people's competitor, it faces its stiffest competition yet: Pineapple Express. I could see the Seth Rogen cosign carrying PE to the Fire Four.
Winner: Pineapple Express
(8) Alien OG v. (4) GMO Cookies
Sure, Alien OG is benefiting from being in a weaker division, but still, it has put in a respectable performance thus far. But don't sleep on GMO Cookies who earned 91 more votes than Alien OG did in the second round.
Winner: Alien OG
