A propensity for marijuana can pay off in more than just jail time if you’re savvy enough, or have a prescription. Compton rapper YG has launched his own official strain of weed called “YG OG.”

The Toot It and Boot It‘ rapper’s designer weed is available at Green Aid, a medical marijuana dispensary in Anaheim, Calif. “Having my own weed makes me feel like the muthaf—in man,” said YG in a statement. “It gets you higher than every other weed.”

AllHipHop.com reports that “YG OG” was conceived after the 2011 XXL Freshman and Green Aid’s general manager Brooks Johnson met via a mutual friend and decided to go into business together. About a month ago, YG, who is signed to Def Jam, tweeted a picture of him and his “vegetation” with the caption, “My weed is on deck “YG OG”"

“As soon as we featured the new YG OG medicine it became an overnight demand amongst our patients,” said Johnson of the currently sold-out product.

YG is promoting his mixtape ‘Just Re’d Up,’ and recording his debut EP on Def Jam, titled ‘Fresh on Campus.’ The EP is due out in June. He’s also crafting tracks for his official first album, which has a projected release later this year.
