Can·na·bis and it’s Many Street Slang Terms cultivating-hemp

If you didn’t know Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants that includes three different species of different strain variations, Cannabis sativa strains, Cannabis indica strains and Cannabis ruderalis. The species are indigenous to Central and South Asia.

Most people have never heard of the term Cannabis ruderalis because it has a far lower THC count than the other varieties. Though some are high in cannabidiol (CBD), which is generally used for medical purposes.

Marijuana is in fact an old slang term used against Mexican culture and should no longer be a part of our modern language.

Depending on the crowd, your locale, and your outlook on it, ‘cannabis’ or ‘marijuana’ can mean many different things. Much like the cannabis lifestyle, some words come with a certain stigma or expectation.  Not all are good, not all bad, but most have negative connotations due to it’s Federal illegality.

Some of the more common Cannabis slang terms are:

  • Marijuana: referring to the original word ‘mariguana’, later americanized to ‘marijuana’ when the first cannabis laws were passed.
  • Pot: referring to the first time the ‘THC- barring hemp’ was popularly consumed.
  • Weed: referring to it’s height
  • Grass: referring to it’s consistence when ground up
  • Ganja: Hindu for cannabis
  • Skunk: referring to smell
  • Hemp: reflecting the plant’s industrial strength and usefulness
  • Reef: referring to the Spanish word ‘griefo’
  • Herb: referring to its versatility in herb usage like tea
  • Loud: referring to high grade strains; the smell and the potency its referred as “loud”.

To break the taboo it is important to use the right terminology. Marijuana is in fact an old slang term used against Mexican culture and should no longer be a part of our modern language.
