Like beauty pageants of yesteryear, Miss USA — the cannabis strain — is evolving with the times.

Two years ago, the Miss America competition decided to trade in looks for brains by dropping the swimsuit competition (and the evening gown portion, too). With the decision, the event went from pageant to competition, organizers said back in 2018. Meanwhile, the Miss USA pageant, which decides who will compete in the Miss Universe competition for the U.S., has remained a “beauty pageant” since its inception in 1952.

But no matter which American beauty pageant/competition you prefer, it’s the Miss USA cannabis strain from Los Angeles-based OG DNA Genetics Inc. that we’re here to talk about.

The strain’s new name is Miss DNA. Described as popular among cannabis cultivators, hash-makers and weed connoisseurs, notes a company statement, the indica-dominant hybrid has a winning past of its own, crossbred from Cannabis Cup recipients Kosher Kush and Strawberry Banana.

“This beauty queen of a strain still exhibits frosty buds and potency — just with a slight DNA twist,” says Don Morris, chief cannabis officer of DNA Genetics.

According to Leafly, Miss DNA’s buds “are drenched in trichomes, making this strain popular for concentrates.” With its giggle-inducing high, Leafly suggests the strain is a nice fit for newbies or connoisseurs looking for a fun, easygoing time.

Of course, there are some practical issues at play with the strain name change. It is meant to “end any confusion or infringement related to the trademarked Miss USA pageant,” the company notes.
