Experiencing the power of weed

You’re probably wondering if Gary Payton is a person or a weed strain. Gary Payton was a famous basketball player with many NBA achievements under his belt. After his career was over, as he got older, Gary Payton started using cannabis regularly. Cookies and Powerzzz Genetics took the opportunity to collaborate with Gary and create a new weed strain. They felt it was most suitable to name the strain after the legendary NBA player. Result being – we now have a potent marijuana strain called Gary Payton.


Derived from two well-known strains, Gary Payton descends from Y and Snowman. It has an exceptionally strong and powerful flavor and a high THC content. Get ready for a jet set euphoric trip to cloud nine. A sativa dominant Gary Payton is an ideal choice for daytime use. This balanced strain provides a relaxed energy that can help you smoothly sail through your day.

Gary Payton is your average bud with purple blotches, large trichomes and average pistils. The dense buds are a dark green but the overpowering strong flavor is unmistakable.


Caryophyllene is the dominant terpene in Gary Payton lending it a peppery flavor, while the Limonene brings on a citrus undertone. The Linalool adds a mild floral tinge to the mix. You end up with a sweet spicy herbal flavor with a strong diesel overtone. It basically has everything you are looking for and more.
