Scottie Pippen #33 strain

The world may know legendary NBA hall-of-famer Scottie Pippen (Scottie Maurice Pippen Snr) for his incredible basketball career. But in these parts, he’s revered for his contribution to the cannabis world. Joining forces with the renowned Backpack Boyz, he helped formulate the self-titled Scottie Pippen weed strain, a one-of-a-kind hybrid with a fan base to challenge his own.

It also goes by Number 33, #33 Scottie Pippen, and Scottie Pippen #33, in homage to the athlete’s jersey number (cue the conspiracy theorists). With its potent highs, layered fragrances, and ever-growing popularity, this powerful hybrid is well on its way to earning a spot among the greats.
