Royal Weeding: Meghan Markle Gets New Strain Namesake Ahead of High Profile Wedding

Tomorrow, the world will turn its attention to the Windsor Castle in England as Prince Harry is set to wed his fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle. But in the meantime, we’ve all received a royal gift well before the newlyweds even have a chance to open their nupit-haul courtesy of Meghan’s nephew, Tyler Dooley, an Oregon-based cannabis cultivator.

It’s a new strain of weed called Markle Sparkle, possibly inspired by her gleaming leading lady smile.

According to a strain profile on Leaf Buyer, the Hybrid is a cross of Blue City Diesel, Blueberry Northern Lights, and a mysterious third strain that will make its debut in June at the Santa Rosa chapter of the High Times Cannabis Cup.

Dooley plans to unveil a whole new line of strains, dubbed “Royally Grown,” at the June event. We’re going to go out on a limb and say Dooley isn’t invited to the wedding.

The strain bio reads, “Noble families often inspire their countrypersons to craft and dedicate products to them. For a Royal baby, a royal cheddar. For a Royal wedding, a royal weed. Markle Sparkle is a cannabis strain dedicated to the soon-to-be British Royal Meghan Markle. The strain is a brilliant cross of Blue City Diesel, Blueberry Northern Lights, and a yet-to-be-revealed strain (will be unveiled in Summer 2018 in CA).”

Dooley is the son of Meghan’s half-brother, Thomas Markle, and is also a partner at the Oregon farm he grows at. Meghan and Tyler haven’t spoken in three years, but she used to babysit the 25-year-old when he was younger. Tyler will be working this weekend during the wedding, but not at his farm. Dooley and his brothers will be giving wedding commentary on Good Morning Britain on the big day.

“Meghan grew up in California and I’m sure has an American view on pot,” Dooley told Daily Mail. “I know in England marijuana is still taboo, but it’s more normal to us here. Prince Harry enjoys a good party. I’d be happy to show them around if they ever come out here and educate them on the medicinal benefits of marijuana.”

“Alcohol and tobacco are far more harmful, while prescription pills kill millions in Britain and America every year.”
