DNA Genetics Renames ‘Miss USA’ Cannabis Strain ‘Miss DNA’

The move is intended to clear up any confusion with the Miss USA beauty pageant.

May 19, 2020

Citing the trademarked Miss USA beauty pageant, DNA Genetics is renaming its Miss USA cannabis strain as Miss DNA.

The cultivar, a cross between DNA’s Kosher Kush and Strawberry Banana, generates high yields and “substantial returns for concentrates,” according to the breeding company. Limonene and myrcene display clearly in the strain’s terpene profile.

“Miss DNA is the same strain you all know and love. This beauty queen of a strain still exhibits frosty buds and potency—just with a slight DNA twist,” Don Morris, Chief Cannabis Officer at DNA Genetics, said in a public statement.

The move echoes GG Strains’ court battle with Gorilla Glue, an adhesive manufacturer, over the cannabis company’s proprietary strain formerly known as Gorilla Glue. (The strain now goes by Original Glue or GG4).
