Cannabis Glossary of Terms | Marijuana Definitions

#A

Aeroponics

The difference between traditional pot farming and aeroponics is like night-and day. With this method, marijuana roots are suspended in the air inside of a chamber where they’re sprayed with water to make them grow healthier than ever before! It’s common for growers who start their plants off early on using an ecosystem that allows more access to sunlight as well as increased oxygen levels because these types can’t yet take care of themselves. 

Agitation

Water agitation is a process used in cannabis extraction to help break down the plant material and extract the cannabinoids. The cannabis is placed in a container and water is added, then the container is shaken or stirred to help agitate the water and break down the plant material. This process can be used alone or in combination with other extraction methods, such as alcohol or CO2 extraction.

Alcohol extraction

Alcohol extraction is a process used to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis. In this process, cannabinoids and terpenes are dissolved in alcohol, then the solution is strained to remove the plant material. The resulting solution is called “hash oil” or “Rick Simpson oil”.

Anandamide

A major endocannabinoid, Anandamide, also known as N-arachidonoylethanolamide, is a panzac Roller filled liquid agonist of the endocannabinoid system that interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain. It is similar in structure to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana. Unlike THC, anandamide does not produce psychoactive effects.

Anandamide was first isolated in 1992 by American chemist William Devane and Israelis Raphael Mechoulam and Bible Da for its occurrence naturally in the brain. It is an endocannabinoid, meaning it is produced by the body itself, specifically in the central nervous system and brain.

Anther

Anthers are the male reproductive organ of a flower. They are typically located at the top of the stamen, and produce pollen. Pollen is then transferred to the female reproductive organ (the pistil) in order to fertilize the ovules and produce seeds.

Amotivational syndrome

Amotivational syndrome is a clinical condition characterized by apathy, lethargy and loss of motivation. It can be caused by a variety of psychological and medical factors, but is most commonly associated with chronic drug use. 

Treatment for amotivational syndrome typically focuses on addressing the underlying cause, as there is no specific cure. Cognitive behavioral therapy and other forms of counseling may be helpful in addressing psychological causes, while medical treatment will be necessary to treat underlying physical conditions. In some cases, medication may be prescribed to help address symptoms of depression or anxiety. With treatment, many people with amotivational syndrome are able to improve their overall functioning and quality of life.

Ash catcher

An ash catcher is a glass piece that is attached to the joint of a bong. It is used to catch the ashes and resin that fall out of the bong during use. This helps to keep the bong clean and makes it easier to clean when it’s time to take it apart. Ash catchers come in many different shapes and sizes, and some even have percolators built in for extra filtration.

Atomizer

Atomizers for cannabis oils are made up of a small metal coil that’s heated with a battery. This coil is then used to heat up the oil, which creates a vapor that can be inhaled.

Atomizers come in all shapes and sizes, and there are a number of different factors you’ll want to consider when choosing one. For example, you’ll want to think about the size of the atomizer, the type of battery it uses, and how easy it is to refill. You’ll also want to make sure that the atomizer you choose is compatible with the type of cannabis oil you’re using.

Autoflower

Autoflower cannabis plants mature and start producing buds after a certain amount of time, Autoflower strains are usually the result of Cannabis ruderalis bred with another strain to make them produce faster.   

#B

Backcross

The use of backcrossing in cannabis breeding is common and allows breeders to introduce certain traits that they want into a plant. Back crossed plants have been bred with themselves or one its parents; essentially Inbred, giving growers more power over these desired characteristics than normally possible through pure genetics alone.

Badder/Batter

Cannabis badder is a cannabis extract that is made using a butane extraction process. The end product is a thick, dark oil that is high in cannabinoids and terpenes.

Cannabis badder is known for its strong psychoactive effects, which are due to its high THC content. It is a popular extract among cannabis enthusiasts and can be used to make edibles, tinctures, and concentrates.

Banger

A dab banger is a type of round-bottom water pipe used to smoke concentrates. It usually has a female joint and a male nail, which the concentrate is then heated on with a torch. Some dabbers also use specialized bowls called “buckets” that have an indentation in the center specifically for smoking dabs.

Banger beads

Banger beads, also called dab rig pearls, are small spheres that can be placed in the nail of a dab rig. Their purpose is to act as a diffuser, creating a larger surface area for the concentrates to vaporize on and therefore producing smoother, healthier hits. In addition, they help to prevent waste by oil and water from washing away your expensive concentrates.

Bag

Bag or baggie of marijuana. Term for cannabis sold on the street. 

BHO (Butane hash oil)

Butane hash oil (BHO) is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made by extracting THC and other cannabinoids from the marijuana plant using butane. Butane is a solvent that strips away the undesired waxes and oils from the plant material, leaving behind a sticky, resinous substance that is high in THC.

Bisabolol

Bisabolol is a terpenoid found in various plant species, including cannabis. It’s known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties, and has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. More recent studies have shown that bisabolol can modulate the effects of THC, making it a potentially useful addition to Medical Cannabis treatments. Bisabolol is also being studied for its potential to treat migraines and other types of pain. So far, the research looks promising but more studies are needed to confirm its efficacy.

Blasting

Blasting is a slang term for cannabis extraction that uses solvents. Within a closed-loop system, a solvent, such as butane, is forced through cannabis plant material to extract cannabinoid- and terpene-rich oils from the plant.  

Blaze

“Street speak” for the act of smoking cannabis to reach a state of euphoria or sometimes described as being “blazed”.

Blunt

A blunt is a method of consuming cannabis that involves wrapping the marijuana in tobacco leaf. Some people see blunts as a way to enjoy both tobacco and cannabis at the same time, while others believe that blunts are simply an effective way to consume marijuana.

Bong

A bong is a smoking device used to smoke tobacco, cannabis, or other herbal substances. It is often made out of glass or plastic. The user places water in the bottom of the bong, and then places their herb of choice in the bowl. They then light the substance and inhale. The water filters out some of the harmful chemicals in the smoke, making it safer to inhale. Bongs are often considered more efficient than joints, as they allow for more smoke to be inhaled at one time.

Borneol

Borneol is a terpene that can be found in cannabis. This substance provides a sweet, earthy aroma, and has been used medicinally for centuries. Borneol has shown potential as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic agent, making it a popular choice for those seeking relief from pain or inflammation. There is still much research to be done on this compound, but preliminary studies suggest that it could be a helpful addition to the treatment of various conditions.

Bowl

Bowls are the essential part of any pipe or bong that holds the cannabis flower. In bongs, they are typically removable and they slide out in order to clear the chamber and inhale the produced smoke.  

Breeding

Pollinating the cannabis plant is an ancient technique that has been used to strengthen certain genetic traits or produce new hybrid strains. The practice of pollinating a female cannabis plant to produce new hybrid strains or strengthen certain genetic traits can be done through the use of pollen from mature males. The sacs on these plants release their load into the air where they can be harvested or directed to females for the fertilization purposes.

Bubble hash

Bubble hash, named for the way it bubbles when smoked, refers to a specific type of hash made with ice water. To make bubble hash, cannabis flower is added to bags of ice water (called “bubble bags”) and agitated, which freezes and then breaks the resin glands from the flower.  

Bubbler

A bubbler pipe is a marijuana smoking device that is a hybrid of a bong and a pipe. It generally has a small water chamber that filters and cools the smoke before it enters the smoker’s lungs. This results in a smoother, more pleasant smoking experience. 

Bud

The cannabis plant is a beautiful and intricate creature. Buds, “nugs” as they’re often called contain trichomes which in turn have compounds such as cannabinoids with therapeutic benefits or high inducing ones depending on the type of strain you choose to smoke.

#C

Camphene

Camphene is a terpene found in cannabis, as well as other plants. It is common to conifers, such as Douglas fir and camphor tree.  Camphorous characterizes this aromatic oil with notes of pine needles at first glance but there are also hints that it could be similar smelling to eucalyptus or even cedarwood when smoked due its woody base note

Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant, such as THC and CBD. These interact with receptors on your endocannabinoid system which can result to various therapeutic effects including euphoria or relief from pain symptoms.

Cannabis

The genus Cannabis is one of the most widely cultivated plants in world history, with stoners from every corner cultivating it for its medicinal properties. The three species that fall under this category are: Cannabis sativa (a type suitable as an ingredient to make tea or other foods), Indica strain which produces more calming effects than others; finally, there’s ruderalis–the sterile branch on farmers’ trees without any THC content at all.

Carb

The carb on your pipe is like the universe’s nicest thermostat. It allows you to regulate airflow and burn rate, which helps keep things running smoothly in this complex system!  

Carene

Carene is the Delta-3 carene is a terpene found in cannabis and other plants, including rosemary. This citrus-like aromatic with cypress impressions can be smelled as both food flavorings and cosmetics products for your skin!  

Cartridge

A cartridge or “Cart” is pre-filled tank of CBD or THC concentrate extracted and combined with oil to work in a vape system. Cartridges, or “carts,” incorporate a heating element, to vaporize the oil.  

Caryophyllene

The aroma and flavor of cannabis are due to its primary active ingredient, Caryophyllene. This terpene has been found in many plants including cloves as well black pepper; sometimes it’s referred to by beta-caryophyllene or BCP.  

CBC

Cannabichromene is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, alongside better-known cannabinoids like CBD and THC. Like these two other common components of marijuana, it’s considered one for current medical research to focus on as well-known “big six” members that make up most all studies into their effects when ingested or inhaled.

CBD

CBD is a cannabinoid found in cannabis that doesn’t get you high. It’s hailed as a medical miracle by some, with claims that it can help with everything from pain relief to seizure control. CBD is legal in most states, and you can find it in a variety of forms including oils, edibles, tinctures, and topical creams. Some people say it helps them feel relaxed and calm, while others claim it gives them more energy and clarity of mind. There’s still a lot of research to be done on CBD, but it’s become increasingly popular as more people are looking for natural ways to manage their health. If you’re interested in trying CBD, be sure to talk to your doctor first to see if it’s right for you.

Circ perc

Circ percs, also known as circular percolators or circ percs, are one of the most popular designs for water pipes and bongs. This design is best known for its distinctive appearance – a ring with slits in the side, similar to a showerhead perc but with gaps between the rings instead of holes on the bottom. Circ percs produce powerful and smooth hits thanks to their unique filtration system, which uses multiple layers of small slits or gaps that force smoke and vapor to interact with each other before being inhaled. 

Closed-loop system

Closed-loop cannabis extraction systems are the latest innovation in the rapidly growing world of cannabis production. These systems use a series of heat exchangers and high-pressure pumps to effectively extract cannabinoids and terpenes from raw plant material, while using minimal energy and minimal waste. By creating a closed-loop system, extraction operators can maximize both efficiency and safety, ensuring that their product is clean and pure without impacting the environment. 

CO2 extraction

The CO2 oil extraction method is efficient and produces a high-quality concentrate. CO2 is a safe and non-toxic solvent that does not leave behind any residue.CO2 extraction relies on a closed-loop system and the chemical is purged from the final product.

Cola

The cola of a marijuana plant is the main flower cluster. It is typically the largest, most potent, and most resinous part of the plant. The cola is also known as the “bud” or “nug.”

Concentrate slurry

During extraction, a concentrate slurry is the mixture of cannabis plant matter and chemical solvent in a closed-loop system before purging. Depending on the solvent and cannabis material used, the slurry may be solid, liquid, runny, or airy.  

Concentrates

Concentrate slurry is a concentrated form of cannabis extract that can be used to make edibles, topicals, tinctures, and other products. The active ingredients in cannabis are extracted into a highly concentrated form, making it easier to add to recipes and measure out doses. Cannabis concentrate can be made at home using simple kitchen supplies or purchased from a dispensary.

Convection

Cannabis vaporizers have come a long way in recent years, and there is now a wide variety of convection vaporizers to choose from. Convection vaporizers work by heating the cannabis material itself, rather than heating the air around it. This results in a more efficient extraction of cannabinoids and terpenes, and provides a better overall flavor and aroma.

Cottonmouth

Cottonmouth is a common side effect of smoking cannabis. It occurs when the cannabinoids in cannabis interact with the body’s salivary glands, causing them to produce less saliva. This can lead to a feeling of dryness or parched mouth and throat, which can be uncomfortable and even painful.

Cotyledon leaves

Cotyledon leaves, also known as seed leaves, are the first leaves that sprout from a seed. The number of cotyledons varies depending on the plant species; for example, peas and beans have two cotyledons, while some other plants such as okra have just one.

Crumble

Crumble is a form of concentrated cannabis that offers users an extremely potent high. Crumble is made by extracting all of the THC-rich trichomes from the plant material and then heating it until the moisture has evaporated and the oils have become waxy. What remains is a crumbly, honeycomb-like substance that contains up to 90% THC. 

Because of its high potency, marijuana crumble is best used in small amounts. A little bit goes a long way with this product, so newcomers should be especially careful when dosing.

Crystalline

Also known as “diamonds” or “isolates,” these super-pure compounds are Crystalline solid, meaning they have an incredibly high degree of purity. This makes them ideal for those who want to experience the maximum potency of CBD or THC. 

Cure

Curing is the process of placing buds in airtight containers after harvesting in order to prevent them from breaking down or degrading over time. This is distinct from drying, which occurs immediately after harvesting and prepares buds for cure by first removing some of the moisture. 

#D

Dab mat

A dab mat, also called a dab rug, is a padded mat used to protect surfaces when performing the cannabis concentrate consumption method known as “dabbing.” Dabbing involves dropping a small amount of concentrated marijuana onto a heated nail, which causes the oil to vaporize. The resulting vapor is then inhaled through a water bong or bubbler.

Dab rig

A dab rig is a water pipe that is specifically used to smoke concentrates, such as wax or shatter. The defining characteristic of a dab rig is that it has a “nail” made from either quartz or titanium, which is heated with a blowtorch and then used to vaporize the concentrates. Dab rigs can come in all shapes and sizes, but typically they are smaller and more portable than traditional water pipes.

Dabber

A dabber is a tool used to apply concentrates to a hot surface (usually a nail) for vaporization. The concentrate is placed on the dabber and then heat is applied, either with a torch or an electronic heating element, until the concentrate begins to vaporize. The vapor is then inhaled.

Dabbing

Dabbing is a popular method of consuming cannabis concentrates. It involves heating the concentrate on a hot surface and then inhaling the vapor through a water pipe or other device. 

Dabbing has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the development of new and powerful cannabis concentrates. These concentrates can pack a potent punch, providing users with enhanced effects that are much more pronounced than those produced by traditional flower products. 

Dank

The term “dank” is often used to describe high-quality cannabis. The term is thought to have originated in the early 1990s in Southern California, where it was used to describe the strong, pungent aroma of certain strains of cannabis. The term can also be used to describe the high quality and potency of a particular strain or product.

Decarboxylation

Decarboxylation is a process that removes a carboxyl group from a molecule. Carboxylic acids are compounds that contain a carboxyl group (COOH), and decarbing them converts them into simpler molecules. The process of decarboxylation often occurs when heating an organic compound – such as cooking cannabis. When cannabis is heated, the carboxylic acids present in the plant material lose carbon dioxide (CO2) and are converted into cannabinoids like THC and CBD.   

Defoliation

There are two types of defoliation: natural and artificial. Natural defoliation occurs when a plant sheds its leaves due to various environmental factors, such as drought or extreme temperatures. Artificial defoliation, on the other hand, is when humans deliberately remove a plant’s leaves in order to manage growth or control pests. Some common examples of artificial defoliation include pruning, topping, and leaf removal.

Delta-10

Delta 10 THC is a potent THC analogue that is known for its strong psychoactive effects. Like other THC analogues, Delta 10 THC binds to the CB1 receptor in the brain and produces feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and altered perception. 

Delta-8

Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid found in cannabis. Delta 8 THC is similar to the more well-known cannabinoid, delta 9 THC, but it has a slightly different chemical structure.

Delta 8 THC is thought to have some of the same effects as delta 9 THC, including psychoactive effects and relief from pain and nausea. However, delta 8 THC is believed to be less potent than delta 9 THC and may cause fewer side effects.

Dewaxing

Dewaxing marijuana is a process that removes the waxy outer layer of the cannabis flower. This layer, which is also known as the cuticle, can contain impurities like waxes, fats, and chlorophyll that can affect the taste and smell of the bud.

Dewaxing marijuana is often done to improve the flavor and aroma of the bud, but it can also make it more potent. Removing the waxes from the flower allows for a greater exposure of THC and other cannabinoids to the surface of the bud, which can result in a stronger high.

Diamonds

Diamond cannabis isolate is made by extracting THC from cannabis flowers using a solvent such as ethanol or butane. The THC is then purified and crystallized to create a white, diamond-like substance that is almost entirely composed of THC. 

Diffused downstem

A diffused downstem is a glass tube that sits in the water and acts as an intermediary between the bowl and the water. It breaks up the smoke into smaller bubbles, which increases the surface area and allows for more of the smoke to come into contact with the water. This makes for a smoother, cooler smoking experience.

Diffuser

A diffuser is a device that breaks up a stream of fluid into small droplets. This can be used to create fog, reduce static electricity, or simply to evenly distribute fluid over a surface. Diffusers are commonly used in humidifiers,air purifiers, and nebulizers.

Diffusion

Diffusion is used to cool and purify smoke when smoking cannabis. Diffusion is usually achieved in a bong (or water pipe) through the use of a percolator or a diffuser, which causes the smoke to spread out (diffuse) in the water.  

Dispensary

Dispensaries play an essential role in the cannabis industry. As licensees, they are responsible for dispensing products to patients and customers, delivering them directly to customers’ homes when needed. Some states even go so far as to permit dispensaries to sell cannabis products directly to consumers, allowing them to bypass traditional retailers altogether. Whether working in a dispensary or simply purchasing products from one, the key benefits of cannabis can be realized by partnering with one of these crucial players in the industry. Whether it be for medicinal or recreational use, knowing that your cannabis is being dispensed by a qualified professional who cares about your health and wellbeing can help support your cure. So whether you’re looking for a healing remedy or just want to unwind after a long day, trust that the right dispensary will have exactly what you need. 

Distillate

A viscous, golden liquid created by refining cannabis resin. Distillation allows the processor to isolate a desired compound from the cannabis plant and leave behind undesirable plant material.  

Dome

A cannabis dome is a type of artificially enclosed environment used for cultivating cannabis plants. Domes are typically made out of metal or plastic, and they can range in size from small (fit for a single plant) to large (suitable for a commercial operation). Cannabis domes offer several benefits over traditional grow methods, including regulated temperature and humidity, intensity of light, and protection from pests and inclement weather.

Dope

Dope is a term used to describe a wide variety of drugs, both legal and illegal. The term is often used informally, and its precise meaning can vary depending on the context. However, in general, dope is considered to be a highly addictive and dangerous drug.

Downstem

A downstem is a glass tube that fits into the opening of a water pipe and extends down into the water. The purpose of a downstem is to diffuse smoke and vapor from the bowl of the pipe into the water, which cools and filters it before it’s inhaled.

Dugout

A dugout pipe is a type of smoking pipe used for smoking tobacco, cannabis, and other dried plant material. It is made by hollowing out a piece of wood or another material such as bone or stone. Dugout pipes have been used for centuries by Native Americans and other cultures around the world. They are simple to make and use and can be very ornate or simple in design. Dugouts pipes can be made from many different materials, but wood is most commonly used.

#E

E-nail

An e-nail is an electronic nail. It’s a device that allows you to heat your concentrates to the desired temperature, making it easier to vaporize them.

Concentrates are becoming increasingly popular and with good reason – they offer a more potent and flavorful experience than smoking flower. But using a traditional lighter can be difficult, especially when trying to get the nail just right. That’s where the e-nail comes in – it takes all the guesswork out of heating your nails and makes vaping concentrates a breeze.

E-rig

An E-rig, or electronic vape rigs, are a newer type of personal vaporizer that allow users to vape both oils and wax concentrates. These devices come with a built-in silicone atomizer that is designed for easy loading and cleaning. E-rigs also feature adjustable airflow, temperature control, and some models even have interchangeable atomizers so you can customize your vaping experience. 

Edibles

Edibles are a type of cannabis-infused product that is consumed orally. Unlike smoking or vaping cannabis, edibles are absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, which takes longer to metabolize and results in a longer and more intense high.

Edibles can be made from scratch using marijuana buds or leaves, or they can be bought pre-made from dispensaries or retailers. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including drinks, snacks, chocolates, and even capsules. Because edibles take longer to kick in than other forms of cannabis ingestion, it’s important to start with a low dose and wait at least an hour before consuming more.

Eighth

n eighth is a unit of measurement for quantifying the amount of a drug, most commonly marijuana, that is consumed. It is generally used when referring to an amount that would be considered to be a “joint” or “spliff”. In terms of marijuana, one eighth is equivalent to 3.5 grams.

Endocannabinoid

Endocannabinoids are a class of molecules that bind to cannabinoid receptors in the body. The best-known endocannabinoid is anandamide, which is responsible for most of the euphoric effects of marijuana.

Endocannabinoids are produced naturally by the body and play a role in many important physiological processes, including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory.

Endocannabinoid system

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a physiological system that plays a role in the regulation of many cognitive and physiological functions. The ECS is composed of four main elements: endocannabinoids, enzymes, receptors, and transport proteins. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoid molecules produced naturally by the body; they bind to cannabinoid receptors and modulate various biological processes. Enzymes are responsible for degrading endocannabinoids; they prevent excessive activity of the ECS. Receptors are proteins that endocannabinoids bind to; they transduce the signal generated by endocannabinoids into a change in cell function. 

Ethanol hash oil (EHO)

Ethanol hash oil is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made by using ethanol to extract the desired compounds from the plant material. The resulting product is a highly concentrated form of cannabis that can contain up to 99% THC. This makes it one of the most potent types of cannabis concentrates available on the market today. 

The extraction process used to make ethanol hash oil is relatively simple and can be done at home with relatively inexpensive equipment. However, it is important to note that this process should only be done by experienced individuals as it can be very dangerous if not done properly. 

Once the desired compounds have been extracted from the plant material, they are then dissolved in ethanol and left to evaporate.

Extract

Cannabis extract is a type of concentrate that contains many of the active compounds found in the cannabis plant. These extracts can be made from any part of the plant, including the flowers, leaves, and stems. The extraction process typically involves using a solvent (like ethanol or CO2) to strip away the desired compounds from the plant material.

The end result is a highly potent product that can be used in various ways, such as dabbing, vaporizing, or edibles. Cannabis extract can contain high levels of THC, CBD, or both depending on the plant material used and the extraction method employed.

Extraction

Processes that aim to remove oil or resin from cannabis plant material to make a concentrate product. Extraction methods can use solvents such as butane, protane, or CO2 in a closed-loop system to produce BHO, PHO, or CO2 extracts, or can use heat and pressure to remove oils, as in making rosins or hash.  

#F

Fatty

A fatty is simply a joint that is rolled with extra weed, resulting in a thicker cigarette. Fattys are typically shorter than average, but they can also be just as long as a regular joint – it all depends on how much weed is used. 

Feminized

Feminized seeds are cannabis seeds that have been specifically bred to produce only female plants. This is typically done by taking a female plant and treating it with silver thiosulfate, which forces it to produce pollen. This pollen is then used to fertilize another female plant, resulting in the creation of feminized seeds.

Feminized seeds are popular among growers because they guarantee that every plant grown from them will be female. This can be helpful in situations where space is limited, or if you want to avoid the hassle of having to sex your plants (which can be difficult and time-consuming).

Fire

An adjective used to describe high quality cannabis, typically flower or concentrates. “Fuego,” the Spanish word for “fire,” is also used in the same way.  

Fixed downstem

A downstem is the piece of a water pipe that connects the bowl to the main chamber, and in this case it is fixed to the pipe, but others can be removable. The downstem helps provide suction, pulling smoke or vapor into the water before getting inhaled.  

Flavonoid

Flavonoids are chemical compounds present in cannabis and other plants, best known for their role in pigmentation—they provide plants with various colors to attract pollinators and potentially protect plants from UV rays, pests, and disease. Flavonoids found in cannabis are called “cannflavins” and they contribute to the overall color of the plant.  

Flower

Flower, also known as bud, is the trichome-rich part of the female cannabis plant that clusters into colas. Flower contains cannabinoids and terpenes which can get you high or offer medical benefits. The flower of the plant is where the majority of the Plant’s THC is produced. 

Flowering time

The length of time it takes for a cannabis flower to reach this stage is known as the flowering time. Different plants have short or long flowering times based on their genetics. For example, some cannabis plants have a flowering time of just 8 weeks, while others can take up to 16 weeks. 

Full-spectrum extracts

 Full-spectrum CBD extracts contain a greater variety of beneficial compounds than CBD isolates, including cannabinoid acids (CBDA and THCA), terpenes, and flavonoids. Each of these compounds has its own unique properties that contribute to the overall therapeutic effect of the extract.

For this reason, full-spectrum CBD extracts are thought to be more effective than CBD isolates for treating a wide variety of conditions.

#G

Ganja

A Hindi term for cannabis that refers to the plant’s buds, which are meant to be smoked. The term is most commonly associated with Rastafari culture and is used in Jamaica but originates in India.  

Geranyl

Geranyl is a monoterpene hydrocarbon that is the primary component of essential oils. It has a sweet, floral odor and is used in perfumery and as a flavor additive. Geranyl can also be found in many plants, including rose oil, lavender oil, and lemon balm.

Germination

Germination is the process by which a plant grows from a seed. The seed contains all of the necessary information for the plant to grow, and germination is the process by which that information is activated and used by the plant to start growing. Germination can happen either in water or in soil, but most plants need some kind of trigger, like light or temperature change, to start the germination process. Once germination starts, the seedling will begin to grow roots and eventually break through the soil and emerge into sunlight. Germination is a complex process that is essential for plant life.

Green out

“Greening out” is a term used to describe the feeling of nausea and anxiety that can sometimes be caused by smoking too much marijuana. Its symptoms include dizziness, paranoia, and an increased heart rate. While it can be unpleasant, it is not dangerous and usually goes away on its own after a few minutes. If you’re concerned about greening out, there are a few things you can do to help prevent it. First, start with a low dose of cannabis, especially if you’re new to smoking. Second, take breaks while smoking and don’t overdo it. And finally, drink plenty of fluids – staying hydrated will help your body cope with the effects of the weed more effectively.

#H

Half (half-ounce)

A half ounce is the equivalent of 14 grams or .5 ounces. It’s a common measurement for cannabis, especially when purchasing pre-rolled joints.

Hand-washing

Hand-washing is the process of manually agitating cannabis plant material in ice water to break off trichomes to make bubble hash. Hand-washing also results in a higher yield of trichomes. Machine washing is a much faster way to produce bubble hash, but it is also much more expensive. Machine washing also results in a lower yield of trichomes because the machines are not as gentle as human hands.

Hand-whipping

Hand-whipping is a technique commonly used at the end of the purging stage of cannabis extraction. During this process, extracted oil is vigorously agitated or whipped by hand. This causes THCA to separate and crystallize, resulting in a thick, waxy substance that is dense and opaque in color. While this step may seem simple, it is actually quite important for producing high-quality concentrates. Without hand-washing, residual plant particles from the extraction process could remain in the final product, leading to unwanted tastes or textures when consumed. Thus, hand-whipping is an essential technique for creating high-quality cannabis concentrates that are both pure and flavorful.

Harvest

the harvesting process is crucial in determining the quality of the final product. After all, cannabis is a crop like any other, and it needs to be carefully tended to in order to achieve the best results. The first step in harvesting cannabis is to cut down the plants. This can be done with a sharp knife or shears, and it’s important to be careful not to damage the buds. Once the plants are cut down, they need to be dried and cured. This process helps to improve both the flavor and the potency of the cannabis. Finally, the buds need to be trimmed and packaged. Trimming is an important step in ensuring that the buds are of high quality, as it removes any unwanted leaves or stems.

Hash

Hash oil is an extract of the cannabis plant that contains high levels of THC. Hash oil can be smoked, vaporized, or eaten.hash has a higher concentration of THC than marijuana, which is why it is more potent.

Heirloom

Heirloom cannabis seeds are a special breed of cannabis seed that is becoming increasingly popular among growers. These seeds are not modified in any way, and they have been bred using traditional methods that have been passed down for generations. Heirloom cannabis seeds produce plants that are strong and healthy, and they yield buds with high levels of THC.

Hemp

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is a fast-growing plant and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fibers more than 10,000 years ago. Hemp fiber can be used to make a variety of different products, including textiles, paper, building materials, and food. The seeds of the hemp plant can also be eaten and are high in protein, essential fatty acids, and minerals. 

High Cannabinoid Full Spectrum Extract (HCFSE)

High Cannabinoid Full Spectrum Extract (HCFSE) is an extract that contains high levels of cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. The extract is made by using a supercritical CO2 extraction process to remove the cannabinoids from the plant material. This process results in a very pure and potent extract that can be used for a variety of purposes.

HCFSE can be used for medical purposes, such as pain relief or to treat certain medical conditions. It can also be used recreationally, for example, to produce a powerful high. In addition, HCFSE can be used in manufacturing processes to create products like topical creams or edibles.

High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract (HTFSE)

High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract (HTFSE) is a type of cannabis extract that contains high levels of terpenes and other cannabinoids. This type of extract is often used to create potent cannabis products, such as shatter or wax. While HTFSE can be made from any type of cannabis plant, it is typically made with high-quality strains that have been carefully selected for their terpene content. 

Honeycomb disc

A honeycomb disc percolator is a small disc with lots of tiny holes in it that sits in the down stem of a waterpipe. When you draw on the pipe, the smoke passes through the honeycomb disc and is diffused into lots of tiny bubbles. This makes for a smooth, flavorful hit.

Humulene

Humulene is a terpene found in the essential oils of hops and cannabis. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Humulene is thought to be responsible for the “hoppy” taste of beer, and it is also one of the primary compounds that gives cannabis its distinctive aroma. Unlike many other cannabinoids and terpenes, humulene does not have psychoactive effects.

Hybrid

A hybrid is a type of cannabis plant that combines the best characteristics of both indica and sativa plants. Indica plants are typically short and squat, with thick leaves and a slightly sleep-inducing effect. Meanwhile, sativa plants tend to be tall and thin, with energizing effects. Hybrids combine these two effects to create a plant that offers the best of both worlds. 

Hybridization can be used to create new cannabis strains that have specific desired characteristics, such as increased yield or resistance to pests and disease. However, it can also be used simply to create plants that have a more balanced blend of indica and sativa traits. 

Hydrocarbon extraction

Hydrocarbon extraction is a process of extracting Cannabinoids from Cannabis. The plant material is soaked in a hydrocarbon solvent, typically Pentane, which strips the cannabinoids from the plant material. The extract is then evaporated off, leaving behind a concentrated oil rich in Cannabinoids. Hydrocarbon extraction is the most efficient method of extraction, providing a pure and potent product. However, it is also considered to be the most dangerous method of extraction due to the highly flammable nature of the solvents used.

Hydroponics

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil. Plants are grown in water and nutrient solutions, and the roots are suspended in the air or in another grow medium.

Cannabis can be successfully grown using hydroponics. In fact, hydroponic cannabis cultivation is becoming increasingly popular due to its many advantages over traditional soil-based growing methods.

Ice water hash

Ice water hash is a process of extracting cannabis concentrates that uses ice water to separate trichomes from the plant matter. The result is a clean and potent concentrate that can be used in various ways, such as being smoked, vaporized, or even ingested. 

The first step in making ice water hash is to grind up the cannabis plant material into a fine powder. This powder is then mixed with ice water and agitated in order to break off the trichomes from the plant matter. The mixture is then filtered through some type of mesh to catch the trichomes while allowing the water to pass through. 

What’s left behind is a block of pure trichome goodness that can be dried.

Indica

There are two main types of cannabis plants – indicas and sativas. Indicas originally come from cold, northern climates and tend to be short and dense, with broad leaves. They’re also known for producing a more relaxing effect when consumed. Sativas, on the other hand, come from warm climates and are typically tall and thin, with narrower leaves. They’re known for providing a more energizing effect. 

Indoor

Indoor-grown cannabis is cannabis that is grown indoors, in a controlled environment. Cannabis can be grown outdoors, but most of the weed sold today is grown indoors under lights. 

There are several reasons for this. Outdoor growers have to contend with weather conditions, pests, and other factors that can damage or destroy their crop. Indoors, growers can control the temperature, humidity, and other conditions to create the perfect environment for their plants. 

Infused pre-roll

An infused preroll is a cannabis preroll that has been infused with a cannabis concentrate or extract. This type of preroll is becoming increasingly popular because it offers a quick and easy way to consume a high dose of THC. Prerolls are also a great option for people who prefer not to smoke marijuana flower.

Isoborneol

Isoborneol is a terpene found in cannabis. It’s known for its minty, camphor-like aroma, and it’s said to be uplifting and calming. Some people use isoborneol as an essential oil, and others use it as a flavoring agent in food. Isoborneol is also sometimes used as a natural medicine to treat respiratory problems and pain.

Isopulegol

Isopulegol is a terpene found in cannabis and it has a lemony aroma. It’s been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. 

#J

Jelly hash

Jelly hash, also known as bubble hash, is a type of cannabis concentrate made by extracting THC and other cannabinoids from the plant using ice water. The resulting product is a sticky, jelly-like substance that can be used to produce potent cannabis edibles or smoked on its own.

Joint

A marijuana joint is a rolled cigarette made from cannabis. The joint is filled with ground-up buds and/or leaves of the cannabis plant. Sometimes, people will also add tobacco to the mix. joints are usually smoked using a crutch, which is a thin object used to hold the joint in place and help you take a drag.

#K

Kief

Kief is a fine powder-like dusting of trichomes that have fallen off cannabis buds. This potent cannabis product is typically collected in a grinder, where it gathers as the cannabis gets ground up. Kief contains high levels of cannabinoids and terpenes, making it prized among cannabis enthusiasts for its powerful effects. Some people even press kief into hash or cook with it to create edibles and other cannabis products.  

Kind

Kind bud is a term for high quality cannabis flower. The word “kind” is a native Hawaiian word for “excellent”. Kind bud is typically grown in tropical or subtropical climates, and it is prized for its strong aroma and high THC content. Kind bud is often used to make hashish, which is a concentrated form of cannabis.  

Kush

Kush is a term used to describe a family of cannabis phenotypes that were originally cultivated in California. The Kush family of cannabis plants is believed to be related to Chemdog and Hindu Kush varieties. Kush varieties are some of the most popular cultivars of cannabis and are known around the world. Kush plants are typically short and stocky, with thick leaves and dense buds. The flowers of Kush plants are often very fragrant, with notes of lemon, pine, and diesel. Kush strains are typically very potent, with high levels of THC. 

#L

Ladder perc

A ladder perc is a popular type of percolator found in glass bongs and dab rigs. This unique design consists of several stacked, disc-shaped bubbler chambers, each of which works to filter and purify the smoke or vapor as it rises. The water in each chamber moves upwards as you inhale, almost as if climbing a ladder. By using multiple stages of filtration like this, the ladder perc helps to break up the smoke and eliminate any harmful impurities before you inhale. And thanks to its ultra-hydrodynamic construction, this handy little percolator also helps to cool and smooth out your hits for a more enjoyable smoking experience overall.  

Landrace

Landraces are cannabis cultivars that have been naturally selected and bred over time in a specific region. Due to the particular environmental conditions of that region, such as climate and soil quality, landraces tend to have unique physical and chemical traits. For example, some landraces may boast higher levels of terpenes or other secondary metabolites which help them thrive in their native environment. In addition, due to the long-term cultivation required for a landrace to develop, these plants often exhibit strong genetic resilience and hardiness.

Leaf

The cannabis leaf is an important part of the plant, and it serves a variety of purposes. The leaf is responsible for producing chlorophyll, which helps the plant to absorb sunlight and convert it into energy. In addition, the leaf helps to protect the plant from pests and diseases. The cannabis leaf also contains a high concentration of cannabinoids, which are the active ingredients in marijuana. 

Light deprivation

Light deprivation, or light deps, is a popular technique used in outdoor cannabis cultivation. This technique involves artificially delaying the harvest of plants by reducing their exposure to light. By manipulating the duration and intensity of the light that a plant receives, growers can control when the plants come to maturity, allowing them to bring crops in earlier during optimal growing conditions.

Light deprivation is often used in greenhouses or other controlled growing environments that allow for temperature and humidity monitoring. With this method, growers can closely monitor and tweak plant growth so that they get the best quality buds from their crops. And because light deps harvest seasons are much shorter than those for natural outdoor plants, growers can also take advantage of more favorable outdoor conditions for longer periods of time, resulting in higher yields and better-quality cannabis overall.

Limonene

Limonene is a versatile terpene found in a wide range of plants, including cannabis, lemons, juniper, and even mint. In terms of its effect on the human body, limonene has been shown to be especially beneficial when it comes to things like anxiety and inflammation. It can also help to improve digestive function and promote overall health and wellbeing. Whether you are looking to reduce stress or just feel better after a meal, limonene makes an excellent choice for anyone looking for natural ways to manage their health. So the next time you want to add some extra benefits to your cannabis experience, seek out strains with high levels of this versatile terpene!  

Linalool

Linalool is a terpene that is found in the cannabis plant. It has a light, sweet fragrance that is both floral and woody. Linalool has been shown to have a wide range of benefits, including reducing anxiety and inflammation, and promoting relaxation. In addition, linalool has demonstrated antimicrobial and antifungal activity. The specific effects of linalool depend on the concentration of the terpene in the plant material. However, linalool is generally considered to be a safe and non-toxic compound. 

Lipid fats

Lipid fats are naturally present in cannabis plants, and their presence can negatively impact the quality and flavor of concentrates. In order to remove lipid fats from an extract, one commonly used method is dewaxing or winterization. This process involves purifying the concentrate by filtering out the unwanted lipids, leaving behind a cleaner, purer product. 

Live resin

Live resin is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made from fresh-frozen cannabis plants. The plants are frozen immediately after they are harvested, which helps to retain more of the terpenes in the finished product. Live resin is typically used for dabbing, as it provides a more potent and flavorful experience than other concentrates that are made from dried and cured buds.

Live rosin

This type of concentrate is made using fresh-frozen plants, which are placed inside of a special rosin press. This machine uses heat and pressure to extract a hot, oil-like substance from the plant material, creating rosin. The result is a pure, potent concentrate that contains all of the active compounds found in cannabis plants.

Low-temp dab

Dabbing at a low temperature can help to preserve terpenes and flavors, as well as produce a stronger high. Low-temp dabs are usually achieved through cold-start or reverse dabbing, in which concentrates are placed in a nail first and then heated. This allows for a more gradual heating process, which prevents the terpenes from being burned up. In addition, low-temp dabs tend to produce a more potent high due to the higher concentration of cannabinoids. However, it is important to note that all dabs should be done slowly and carefully, as the concentrated form of cannabis can be very powerful. When done correctly, however, low-temp dabbing can be an enjoyable and potent way to consume cannabis concentrates.

#M

Marijuana

Marijuana is a term most commonly used to refer to the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plant. Though it can also be used to describe the plant itself, marijuana is typically used to refer to the psychoactive drug derived from the plant.

Marinol

Marinol is a synthetic form of THC that has been widely used to treat the symptoms of certain medical conditions. Specifically, this drug has been shown to be effective at treating nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy treatment, as well as helping to restore appetite and prevent weight loss in patients with HIV. The active ingredient in Marinol is dronabinol, a potent cannabinoid that triggers a variety of physiological effects in the body.

Medical marijuana

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that medical marijuana can be an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, ranging from pain relief to seizure control. In addition, medical marijuana is often less expensive and easier to access than traditional pharmaceuticals.. 

Moon rocks

Moon rocks are a special type of cannabis flower that is especially potent and known for delivering a powerful high. These nuggets are created by first covering the flower in a layer of liquid cannabis concentrate, such as wax or shatter. Then, the flower is dusted with kief, a fine powder made from trichomes, or the sticky crystallized structures located on the surface of flowers and leaves.   

Mota

Over time, the word marihuana evolved into the word mota in Mexican Spanish. Mota is now commonly used in reference to cannabis throughout Mexico and in Mexican communities in the United States. 

Myrcene

Myrcene is a terpene that’s found in both the cannabis plant and other plants like mango, lemongrass, basil, and hops. It has an earthy, peppery aroma with sweet, fruity undertones and hints of mango and balsam. Myrcene is thought to be one of the major contributors to the “couch lock” effect that some people experience when smoking cannabis. It’s also a major component of essential oils used in aromatherapy. Some studies have shown that myrcene has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties.

#N

Nail

A dab nail is an attachment that connects to the downstem, much like a bowl in a bong, and they are commonly made of quartz, glass, ceramic, or titanium. While dab nails can come in a variety of materials, the most popular material for dab nails is quartz. Quartz dab nails provide excellent heat retention, which allows for dabbing at lower temperatures.

Nectar collector

A nectar collector is a type of vaporizer used to consume cannabis concentrates, most commonly hash oil. The name derives from the fact that the vaporized material resembles honey or nectar.

The concentrate is placed in the small end of the tube and the user then sucks on the larger end, like a straw. This causes heat to be drawn from the concentrate and through the glass, vaporizing it. Nectar collectors can be made from various materials, including glass, metal and silicone.  

Nerolidol

Nerolidol is a type of terpene, and it’s found in essential oils such as jasmine, neroli, and lavender. It has a woodsy, earthy smell, and it’s said to be relaxing and calming.

Nerolidol is being studied for its potential therapeutic benefits, including its ability to fight inflammation, boost the immune system, and reduce anxiety and depression. Preliminary research suggests that nerolidol may also have anticancer properties.

Nug

A “nug” is a small, tightly-packed piece of cannabis. It can be bud from a cannabis plant, or shake (the smaller leaves and stems that break off the buds). Usually, when people refer to a “nug,” they’re talking about high-quality bud that is dense and covered in trichomes (the hairs that contain THC).

#O

Ocimene

Ocimene is a hydrocarbon found in many plants, including hemp and cannabis. It occurs naturally in several African and Asian countries, as well as in the Amazon rainforest. Ocimene has a sweet, floral aroma and is used in perfumes and fragrances. It is also used as a flavoring agent in food and beverages.

Ocimene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is emitted into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels. VOCs are pollutants that can react with other chemicals in the air to form ground-level ozone, which is a main ingredient of smog. Ocimenes are also produced by biogenic sources, such as trees and other plants

One-hitter

One-hitters are small pipes designed for taking just one hit at a time. They often have the bowl facing straight out, away from the mouthpiece, and usually don’t have a carb. One-hitters are great for taking quick hits when you don’t want to smoke a lot of weed. 

Open blasting

Back in the day, open blasting was the go-to method for extracting cannabis. Basically, you would throw some plant material in a jar with a solvent, give it a good shake, and then let it all evaporate away, leaving behind a nice, concentrated extract. The problem with this method is that it’s really dangerous. If you’re not careful, those solvents can easily catch fire, and since they’re not enclosed in a closed-loop system, there’s nothing stopping them from causing some serious damage. Nowadays, open blasting is not up to snuff with licensed cannabis extraction standards because of these dangers, so if you’re looking to get into the extraction game, you’ll need to invest in a closed-loop system. 

Ounce

When it comes to buying and possessing cannabis, an ounce is the most you can have in most adult-use states. But what exactly is an ounce? An ounce is a unit of measurement that equals 28 grams.

Outdoor

Cannabis that is grown outdoors is subject to the whims of the weather, which can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, exposure to the elements can lead to a more robust and flavorful crop. However, inclement weather can also damage delicate plants, leading to a reduced yield. In addition, outdoor cannabis is more susceptible to pests and diseases, which can require the use of pesticides and other chemicals. Overall, growing cannabis outdoors requires more time and effort than growing it indoors, but it can be a rewarding experience for those who are willing to put in the work.

#P

Percolator

A percolator is a key component of any bong or dab rig. This specialized part of the smoking apparatus serves two important purposes: it helps to cool and filter the smoke, making it easier to inhale, and it diffuses the smoke, breaking it up into smaller particles.

Phellandrene

Phellandrene is an organic compound found in the essential oils of plants such as peppermint, eucalyptus, and cannabis. It has a piney, woody smell and is used in perfumes, flavors, and aromatherapy. Phellandrene is also a minor constituent of many cannabis strains. It has been shown to have some anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. 

Pheno-hunting

Pheno-hunting is the process of seeking out a particular phenotype (physical appearance) of a cannabis plant. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as finding a plant that is more likely to produce a certain type of cannabinoids or terpenes. 

Phenotype hunting has become increasingly popular in recent years as cannabis growers have become more sophisticated and have looked for ways to create specific strains that meet their needs. For example, some growers may want to find a plant that is high in CBD, while others may want one that produces a lot of THC.

Phenolic compounds

Phenolic compounds are a large and diverse class of organic molecules that include polyphenols, flavonoids, and stilbenes. They are found in many plant-based foods, beverages, spices, and medicinal plants. Cannabis is a particularly rich source of phenolic compounds.

Some of the key biological activities of phenolic compounds include antioxidant activity (protection against free radical damage), anti-inflammatory activity, and cancer prevention. They also play important roles in taste and flavor. For example, cannabis contains several unique phenolic acids that contribute to its characteristic “green” taste.

Phenotype

The phenotype of a cannabis plant is determined by the interaction between the genotype and the environment. For example, growers can manipulate the phenotype of their plants by controlling factors such as light exposure, water, and nutrients.

Some common phenotypes include indica, sativa, and ruderalis. Indica plants are known for their short stature and wide leaves, while sativa plants are taller with narrower leaves. Ruderalis plants are generally smaller than other cannabis strains and produce lower levels of THC.

Phytocannabinoid

Phytocannabinoids are a class of molecules that are found in cannabis. There are over 100 different phytocannabinoids, and they all interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system in slightly different ways.

The most well-known phytocannabinoid is THC, which is responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis. However, THC is just one of many phytocannabinoids, and not all of them have psychoactive effects. Some of the other most well-known phytocannabinoids include CBD, CBC, and CBG.

Phytol

Phytol is a cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is thought to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. Phytol is not currently approved for medical use in the United States. Limited research has been conducted on phytol, and more studies are needed to determine its safety and efficacy.

Pinene

Pinene is a terpene found in cannabis and other plants. It has a pine-like aroma and is thought to promote alertness and memory retention. Pinene may also help counteract some of the sedative effects of THC.

Pistil

The pistil is the female reproductive organ of a cannabis plant. It is made up of the ovule, stigma, and style. The ovule is where the egg cell is located, and the stigma is where pollen land. The style is a stalk that connects the stigma to the ovule. The pistil typically turns red or orange when the plant is ready to harvest.

Plant matter

Plant matter is the part of a cannabis plant that is removed from the plant when pruning or harvesting. This can include not just leaves and flowers, but also stems, branches, and stalks.  

Pollen

Pollen is a key component of cannabis cultivation, as it helps to pollinate the female plants and encourage seed production. In cannabis plants, the male flowers produce and release pollen through small sacs in their buds, which blows away on the wind and travels to female plants. 

Pot

Pot is a slang term for cannabis that gained popularity in the 1930s. Shortened from the name of a Spanish grief potion, pot is an abbreviation of “potación de guaya.” While the origin of the word is unclear, it is thought to have come into use because cannabis was often smoked in clay pots. Today, pot is used to refer to cannabis in general, especially when used for recreational purposes. 

Pre-roll

Pre-rolls are basically cannabis joints that are made beforehand and sold in dispensaries. Customers can choose from a variety of pre-rolled options, depending on their preference of cannabis strain, effect, and price. Some pre-rolls even come with special additives like flavoring or terpenes to enhance the taste and smell. 

Propane hash oil (PHO)

Propane hash oil (PHO) is a type of cannabis oil that is made by using propane as the solvent to extract cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. This produces a very concentrated form of cannabis oil that has a higher THC content than other forms of cannabis oil. Propane hash oil is sometimes referred to as “butane honey oil” (BHO) because butane is also commonly

Pulegone

Pulegone is a natural organic compound found in plants such as peppermint, pennyroyal, and cannabis. It has a minty smell and is used as a flavor additive in food and beverages.

Pulegone is also believed to have strong antioxidant properties, and it’s been shown to protect liver cells from damage. Additionally, preliminary research suggests that pulegone may offer some protection against the development of cancer.    

Pull and snap

Pull and snap is a term used to describe the texture of certain concentrates. When pulling on the concentrate, it should stretch like taffy or bubble gum before snapping back into place. This consistency is often considered an indicator of high quality concentrates.  

Purps

Purps is a term used to describe a variety of cannabis cultivars. The term is often used interchangeably with “purple” or “purple strains”, which typically refers to strains that exhibit deep purple coloring.

Many different genetic combinations can produce purples, so there is no one definitive answer to the question of what makes a purp strain. However, many purps are known for their high levels of THC and CBD, as well as their sweet and fruity flavor profiles.

#Q

QP

A QP, or quarter pound, of cannabis is a measurement typically used to purchase weed. A QP equals approximately 113.3 grams. 

Quartz

Quartz is a unique material that has become increasingly popular for use in dabbing nails. Due to its high heat tolerance and resistance to cracking or breaking, quartz is often considered the ideal material for cannabis concentrates such as dabs or wax. 

#R

Raw

Raw cannabis refers to cannabis plant material that is mature and ready for harvest, but has not been dried or cured or heated for consumption. Because it contains cannabinoids in their acid forms, such as THC-A or CBDA, it tends to be consumed by people via various edible methods. Some people even choose to take raw cannabis on a daily basis as part of their regular health regimen. 

Re-up

Re-up is a cannabis term that refers to the act of replenishing your supply of weed. This can be done by buying more weed, growing your own plants, or taking buds from another person’s stash.( but we don’t recommend that 😉

Recreational Use

Recreational cannabis use is the consumption of cannabis for non-medical purposes.

Cannabis has been used recreationally for centuries, but it is only recently that its use has become legal in some parts of the world.

Reefer

If you listen to old jazz songs, you might hear the word “reefer” being used. This is a slang term for cannabis that dates back to at least the 1930s. At the time, it was a coded word that jazz musicians used to refer to cannabis in their songs. 

Residual solvents

Residual solvents are molecules that remain in a cannabis concentrate after the extraction process. These solvents can include ethanol, propane, butane, hexane, and others. 

Resin

Resin is a hardened, sticky substance that is produced by the trichomes of the marijuana plant. This substance is used to make hash and other marijuana-based products. Resin can vary in color from clear to amber, and its THC content can range from 10-30%.

Resin hit

Smoking a resin hit is simply scraping the resin left behind in the bowl of a pipe or bong from previous smoking sessions and then packing it into the bowl and lighting it up. But, as many experienced cannabis smokers know, a resin hit does not quite live up to its full potential.

Rig

A rig is a slang term for a smoking device used to consume marijuana. It can be made from various materials such as glass, metal, or plastic. A rig typically consists of a bowl (where the herb is placed), a “neck” (the part that connects the bowl to the body of the rig), and a “mouthpiece” (the part that is inserted into the smoker’s mouth). Rigs can be very simple or quite elaborate, often featuring percolators or other mechanisms designed to cool and filter the smoke.  

Roach

A “roach” is a marijuana cigarette that has been smoked down to the point where it is mostly just the accumulated ash. It’s called a roach because it looks like the dried-out body of a cockroach. 

Rosin

Rosin is considered a solventless extraction because it does not use any chemicals or solvents. The rosin pressing process uses heat and pressure to extract the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the cannabis flower. This results in a clean, pure product that does not contain any harmful solvents or chemicals.

Rotary evaporator

A Rotary evaporator is a type of evaporator that uses a rotating flask to create a thin film of material to be heated. The material is then rapidly cooled, causing the desired components to be vaporized while the waste products remain in the flask. This technique is often used to create cannabis concentrates, as it allows for a very high purity product. Rotary evaporators are also much faster than traditional methods of evaporation, making them ideal for large-scale production.

Ruderalis

Ruderalis is a subspecies of cannabis that originates from Central and Eastern Europe. It is characterized by its small size and relatively low THC content. Ruderalis is often used as a source of CBD, as it typically contains higher levels of this compound than other subspecies of cannabis. While ruderalis plants are not typically grown for their psychoactive effects, some breeders have developed hybrid strains that contain both THC and CBD, providing users with the potential benefits of both compounds.

#S

Sabinene

Sabinene is a terpene found in cannabis. It’s responsible for the strong herbal aroma and is often used as a natural flavor additive. According to some, sabinene has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.  

Sativa

Cannabis sativa is one of the most common strains of cannabis. It is a tall, lanky plant with long, spindly leaves. Sativa strains are known for their energetic and uplifting effects. 

Sauce

Sauce is a high-terpene cannabis extract that’s known for its intense flavor and potent effects. It’s made by dissolving cannabis in alcohol, then straining the plant material out of the solution. The end result is a thick, viscous liquid with a strong herbal aroma.

Sauce is prized by cannabis enthusiasts for its intensely fruity flavor and psychoactive effects. It’s been called “the Ferrari of extracts” due to its powerful cerebral buzz. 

Schwag

Schwag typically refers to low-grade marijuana. It is usually the leaves and stems of the cannabis plant, rather than the bud. Schwag is typically lower in THC than other types of marijuana, making it less potent. 

SCROG 

SCROG is an acronym for Screen of Green. It is a training method for indoor cannabis growers that uses a horizontal screen to control the height and shape of the plants.

The SCROG method uses a screen (usually made of wire or plastic) to create a flat canopy of buds at the top of the plant. This allows lighter to reach all the branches, which encourages them to grow thicker and bushier. The result is larger yields from a smaller grow area.

Seed

A seed is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a protective outer covering. The embryo has an endosperm and a protective coat. Seeds are the product of the ripened ovule of a flowering plant. 

Seed-to-sale

Seed-to-sale tracking is an essential part of the legal cannabis industry and refers to the computer program that documents and tracks cannabis from seed to product. This system allows state authorities to keep track of every plant, ensuring that cannabis is grown and distributed legally. Depending on the state, seed-to-sale tracking is either required or voluntary for medical marijuana dispensaries, but it is always a crucial aspect of ensuring compliance with local laws. 

Shake

Shake is a slang term for the buds of cannabis plants that have been shaken off the stem and are therefore not in their most ideal form.

Shatter

Shatter is a type of cannabis extract that is made up of pure, clean THC. It is a high-quality extract that is usually golden in color and has a glass-like appearance.

Shatter is one of the most potent forms of cannabis available, as it contains up to 90% THC. 

Sinsemilla

Sinsemilla (from Spanish sin cébillos, “without seeds”) is the dried, seedless inflorescences of female cannabis plants. It is Justin Bieber’s favorite type of marijuana according to his manager, Scooter Braun.   

Solar hit

A solar hit is a term used to describe the act of smoking marijuana through a solar powered device. The principle is similar to that of a regular cannabis pipe, but instead of using a lighter to heat the bowl, the solar hit uses the power of the sun.  

Solvent

A solvent is a substance, usually a liquid, that can dissolve other substances (called the solute), which forms a solution. In the cannabis industry, “solvent” concentrates refer to products made using chemicals such as butane, propane, ethanol, etc.  

Splash guard

Splash guards are a great way to minimize the waste of your precious dab when you’re taking a hit. They work by collecting the oil in the stem of the banger, which prevents it from running off and being lost.

Spliff

A spliff is a marijuana cigarette. It is usually a mix of tobacco and marijuana, but can also be made with just marijuana.

Stamen

The reproductive organ of the male cannabis plant. The stamen produces pollen which carries the male plant’s genes and travels through air to pollinate a female plant.  

Stoned

The term “stoned” is often used to describe the feeling that comes from smoking cannabis. When someone is “stoned”, they may feel euphoric, relaxed, and happy. They may also feel sleepy or hungry.   

Strain

Cannabis strains are either pure or hybrid varieties of the plant Cannabis sativa. Strains are developed to contain a specific cannabinoid ratio and to exhibit certain characteristics, such as smell, flavor, and psychoactive effects.

Sugar Wax

Sugar wax is a type of cannabis concentrate that gets its name from its sugar-like consistency. It’s made by using a solvent to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis flower, resulting in a highly potent product with a THC content that can exceed 90%. Sugar wax can be used in various ways, such as smoked, vaporized, or dabbed.  

Sun-grown

Sun-grown cannabis is a type of cannabis that is grown in natural sunlight instead of artificial lights. Cannabis plants need lots of light to grow properly, and sun-grown cannabis exposes the plants to more intense light than artificial lights can provide. This results in stronger, healthier plants that produce better quality buds. Sun-grown cannabis also uses less energy than artificially lit grows, which makes it more environmentally friendly. 

#T

Taffy

A cannabis concentrate, commonly known as taffy, is a type of extract made from cannabis. It is created through the use of pressure and heat to strip away all the plant matter other than the cannabinoids and terpenes. The end result is a thick and sticky substance that can be difficult to handle.

Terp pearls

Terp pearls are small, spherical balls made of borosilicate or other heat-resistant materials. Typically placed at the bottom of a banger or other piece of dabbing equipment, these beads are also known as “dabbers” or “dab beads”. When used for dabbing, terp pearls spin around and distribute heat evenly, resulting in more consistent dabs and more flavorful hits.

Terpene distillation

Terpene distillation is a crucial step in the process of creating high-quality cannabis products. Terpenes are the fragrant and flavorful compounds that give cannabis its unique aroma and taste. To extract these volatile terpenes, many producers use a process called distillation, which involves low temperatures and gentle pressure to prevent damage to the sensitive terpene molecules.

Terpenes

Terpenes are a class of organic compounds that occur naturally in plants, and they play a role in the flavor, scent, and color of plants. Each terpene has its own unique properties, and many of them have therapeutic benefits. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from cannabis plant material, then diluting it with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil or coconut oil. The CBD oil can be consumed orally or applied topically. 

Terpinene

Terpinene is a terpene that is found in cannabis. Terpinenes are responsible for the plant’s distinct aroma, and they also provide many potential health benefits. For example, terpinenes have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. 

Terpinolene

Terpinolene is a monoterpene molecule that is produced by some plants, including cannabis. This substance has a strong aroma, and is often used as a fragrance or flavoring agent. In addition to its potent smell, terpinolene has also shown some promise as a medicinal compound. Early research indicates that it may have anti-cancer properties, as well as the ability to inhibit bacterial growth. Terpinolene is just one of many possible therapeutic compounds found in cannabis, and further study is needed to explore its full potential.  

THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It’s responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana use.

THC is a cannabinoid, which means it interacts with receptors in the brain that are specifically designed to bind with cannabinoids. These receptors are known as CB1 receptors. THC binds to CB1 receptors and activates them, which causes the psychological effects associated with marijuana use. 

THCA

THCA is short for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It’s a cannabinoid, meaning it’s one of the dozens of compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. These plant-based chemicals interact with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which helps regulate things like mood, pain perception, and inflammation throughout the body.

THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a phytochemical found in cannabis. It is similar in structure to THC but has a different pharmacology. THCV is a CB1 receptor antagonist, meaning that it blocks the effects of THC. This makes THCV interesting as a potential medicine, because it could be used to reduce the psychoactive effects of THC, while still retaining the beneficial therapeutic effects.

Tincture

A tincture is a cannabis-infused liquid. Tinctures are typically made by steeping flower or concentrate in high-proof alcohol or glycerin and are commonly used to dose internal medicine. Because the plant matter is completely saturated and dissolved, tinctures tend to be very potent.  

Top shelf

Top shelf cannabis is the highest quality flower available in dispensaries. This type of flower is typically the most expensive, due to its outstanding aroma, flavor, and potency. It has been carefully cultivated and cured by experts, resulting in a bud with an abundance of trichomes and an incredibly rich terpene profile.

Topical

Cannabis topicals are preparations made from the cannabis plant that can be applied directly to the skin. There are a variety of topical products available on the market, including creams, lotions, salves, and oils. 

Each product contains different cannabinoids and terpenes (the chemical compounds that give cannabis its distinctive smell), which work together to provide desired effects. Topicals can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including pain, inflammation, skin irritations, and more.

Trichomes

Trichomes are tiny hairs that grow on the surface of Plants. They can be found on the leaves, flowers, and fruits of many plants – including cannabis. Trichomes help plants to defend themselves against predators such as insects. The oils and resins secreted by trichomes can make a plant taste unpleasant or even poisonous to predators. This protects the plant from being eaten and ensures that it can continue to grow and reproduce. 

Trim

The trimmings of a cannabis plant, cut off during the trimming phase, after harvest. Trim includes sugar leaves, bits of cut-off buds, and knocked off trichomes, or kief.  

#U

Uplifting

“Uplifting” is a term commonly used to describe positive effects of cannabis that make the consumer feel happy, easygoing, elevated, or euphoric. Effects from a cannabis strain are subjective, and each strain interacts with each individual in a different way.  

#V

Vacuum oven

Vacuum ovens are commonly used by extract manufacturers, specifically BHO makers, to purge butane and other impurities from concentrates. This specialized oven dries cannabis through a vacuum chamber rather than through conductive or convective heat.  

Valencene

Valencene is a terpene that can be found in small amounts in some cannabis strains, and has the aroma of sweet orange, fresh herbs, or freshly cut wood. It is commonly found in Valencia oranges, for which it is named.  

Vape

To inhale cannabis vapor from a vaporizer, vape pen, dab rig, or e-nail. Vaping cannabis is typically considered to be less harmful than smoking.  

Vape pen

A common type of vaporizer, vape pens are handheld, discreet, and can fit in your pocket. They usually consist of a battery with a cartridge, or “cart,” that screws on top; the cart contains cannabis oil and a heating element.  

Vaporization

The conversion of a substance from a liquid or solid state to a gas. Vaporization usually heats cannabis between 356-392°F (180-200°C), at a lower temperature than combustion, preserving more cannabinoids and terpenes, and is generally thought to be healthier than smoking.  

Vaporizer

A vaporizer is any device that uses heat to vaporize cannabis. Vaporizers can be small and portable or large tabletop devices, and can vaporize cannabis oil or flower.  

Vegetative stage

The period of growth of a cannabis plant after the seedling stage and before the flowering stage. During the vegetative, or veg, stage, cannabis plants grow the most, packing on branches and fan leaves but not buds.  

Venturi chamber

A feature on a bong that funnels and spins smoke, cooling it and creating a smoother hit. The Venturi chamber is named after the Venturi effect, discovered by Italian physicist Giovanni Battista Venturi.  

#W

Waffle perc

A disc-shaped percolator, usually stretching across the entire cylinder of a bong or dab rig, with a crosshatched hole design that resembles a waffle. Like all percolators, waffle percs filter and cool smoke or vapor during inhalation to create a smoother hit.  

Wax

Cannabis wax is an extract named for its soft, malleable texture that resembles wax. Because wax can take on so many nuanced forms, it may also be called “butter,” “badder,” “honeycomb,” or other descriptive names that speak to the extract’s texture and appearance.  

Weed

A slang term for cannabis. “Weed” is a general word, used to describe any type of cannabis, of low or high quality.  

Whole plant

Whole plant cannabis products, often called “whole plant medicine,” is a way to describe the consumption of cannabis in its original, biodiverse form. The term emerged in response to the trend of isolating cannabis compounds like CBD or THC, stripping out the many other chemical constituents of the plant through extraction.  

Winterization

An extraction process that uses subzero temperatures to remove undesired waxes and fatty lipids from a cannabis concentrate, including plant lipids, which can negatively impact the flavor and aesthetics of a product. Winterization is similar to dewaxing, which also separates undesirable fats and waxes in concentrates.  

#X

Xanthophyll

Xanthophyll is a yellow pigment in cannabis plants that helps the plant regulate heat and light. If a plant lacks chlorophyll and develops a nutrient deficiency, xanthophyll may become apparent as a yellowing on leaves.  

#Y

Yield

“Yield” is the amount of cannabis a grower gets from a harvest. Certain strains yield more buds than others, and growing practices and environmental conditions can affect the yield of a cannabis crop.  

#Z

Zaza

Zaza or “exotic” is a blanket term for rare, high-grade strains of cannabis. The term “zaza weed” first gained popularity in Google searches in March of 2020, thanks in part, but not limited, to its inclusion in popular rap.   

Zip

A slang term for an ounce of cannabis flower, equal to 28 grams. In recreational states, a zip is usually the most an adult without a medical card can purchase in a day.
