The 1st around has come to an finish and WOW have the mighty fallen. Only one 1st seed (OG Kush) made it out of the first around, the leisure have been disillusioned by way of the eighth seeds, together with each wild card write-ins. Here’s a look at how all the suits ended:
The box now seems like this:
Before we leap into the moment around matchups, we wish to give a giant thanks to everybody who voted. Nearly 62,000 votes have been submitted in general thru Weedmaps’ Instagram tales.
Quick factor: do not overlook to vote on Weedmaps’ Instagram stories. Polls will keep open till Thursday 4:20 p.m. PST.
And with that, let’s dive into the Eight second-round matchups and the 16 lines competing.
(8) Purple Punch v. (2) Sour Diesel
In a sudden disillusioned, the wild card Purple Punch pummelled 1st seed Biscotti, taking in 64% of the votes. Purple Punch goes up in opposition to Sour Diesel, a vintage pressure that simply brushed aside Kush Mints in around one. I believe that is the place Purple Punch’s success ends and be expecting to peer Sour Diesel advance, however we can have every other disillusioned in the making.
(3) Green Crack v. (5) Gelato
Green Crack and AK-47 tied the on the first vote earlier than Green Crack took the fit in a shortened moment vote. Gelato got here up victorious in its much-publicized first-round matchup with Blue Dream. Green Crack is a application pressure going up in opposition to Gelato’s upper profile. The winner will have to be a just right indicator of what sort of weed you all want.
(1) OG Kush v. (7) Northern Lights
The maximum dominant efficiency in the first around went to OG Kush, which beaten Pink Panties. OG Kush used to be certainly one of best two lines to get greater than 3,000 votes, so it is secure to suppose it will have to care for seventh seed Northern Lights comfortably. But we’re going to have to peer.
(6) GG4 v. (4) Wedding Cake
GG4 escaped a quite shut skirmish with Forbidden Fruit profitable by way of simply 281 votes, the closest contest (but even so the tie). It will face Wedding Cake, which had a breezy first around in opposition to Cherry Pie. I don’t believe Wedding Cake goes to have it as simple in the moment around taking into account how battle-tested GG4 is. Whoever advances will have to have a difficult, however a winnable matchup with OG Kush.
(8) Jack Herer v. (7) Godfather OG
I had a feeling Jack Herer used to be going to stomp on Acapulco Gold. You all cherished Jack, however you additionally cherished Godfather OG just about as a lot. Jack Herer were given 2,376 votes to Godfather OG’s 2,300, a mere 76 vote distinction. Fingers crossed this one comes all the way down to the cord.
(6) Granddaddy Purple v. (5) Pineapple Express
Granddaddy Purple did not ruin a lot of a sweat in opposition to 24k and simply complicated to the subsequent matchup. Unfortunately, it is going to be going through up in opposition to Pineapple Express, which used to be the different pressure to get greater than 3,000 votes. Pineapple Express has a ton of momentum, we’re going to see if it continues on this second-round matchup.
(8) Alien OG v. (2) Sherbet
It proved to be a decent matchup, however Alien OG ended up knocking out GSC quite decisively, 58% to 42%. But Sherbet comes out of the first around taking a look robust. While Alien OG took in 2,226 votes, Sherbet introduced house 2,462 votes in the first around. Perhaps Sherbet had weaker pageant (sorry Harlequin), but when momentum remains the identical this will have to be a shut matchup to observe.
(3) Afghani v. (4) GMO Cookies
Afghanistan v. GMO Cookies is a forged matchup. GMO Cookies had a little bit extra momentum as soon as the first around used to be all mentioned and performed, however this will have to keep a shut matchup.
