We’ve finally reached the Fire Four. OG Kush was the biggest blowout win, with over 3,000 votes ahead of Alien Kush. Over on the other side of the bracket we had our first major upset as 6th seeded Purple Haze barely scraping past 1st seeded Blue Dream in a nail-biting 51% to 49% finish.
Heavyweights Gelato and Pineapple Express came out on top against equally famous Sour Diesel and GG4, but with the popularity of that lineup, the wins could have gone either way.
Here’s what the field looks like now:

Now, let’s dive into the two fourth-round matchups and the four strains competing.
(1) OG Kush v. (1) Gelato
Just like last year, here we go again with mega-star competitors Gelato and OG Kush. But can OG Kush take down Gelato for the second time, or will the delicious dessert strain reign supreme? Personally, I think it’s time we rally around the underdog.
(6) Purple Haze v. (1) Pineapple Express
Pineapple Express is used to sitting at the Fire Four table, as it beat out Alien OG in the third round in 2020. But, Purple Haze is a beefier contender. At this point in the competition, either could go to the final round.
