Whether you’re new to smoking, or just curious how to talk about “marijuana,” here’s some common cannabis lingo you should be friendly with.

01

Joint

Also called a “J,” it’s cannabis rolled up like a cigarette. The little fellow also goes by a bunch of alias depending on where you live, a person's age and who you ask . AKA’s : Blunt, Doobie, Fatty, Happy cigarette,  Left-handed cigarette, Phatty, Pinner, Reefer, Spliff

02

Roach

That J getting too small to hold? Now you’ve got a roach. What’s that? Burning your fingers? grab a roach clip or put it in your favorite pipe.

03

Bowl

Pipes are a common  smoking tool. Place cannabis in the bowl and a finger over the choke (the hole). Then light and release to send smoke up the chamber to the mouthpiece. A bowl also refers to a glass pipe, the best kind for the purest flavor.

04

Blunt

Similar to a joint, but larger and rolled using a tobacco leaf—typically from a broken apart cigar. (Fun Fact:  Mix that tobacco into a J and BOOM! it’s a spliff.)

05

Vaporizer

A traditional vaporizer—like the popular Volcano—heats cannabis until the cannabinoids (THC, CBD) “vaporize” to be inhaled. No burning plant matter means fewer carcinogens and a gentler mist. A vape pen uses oil instead.

06

Bong

A bong is a large glass pipe with a stem connected to the bowl. The stem goes into a water-filled chamber to filter the smoke. (Fun Fact: Some people even add ice to their bong to cut down on the harshness of the smoke their inhale).

07

Gram, Dime, Eighth, Quarter, Half, Ounce

The most common purchasable amounts. One gram makes roughly three joints. Two grams is a dime. 28 grams, an ounce. Then it’s all metric from there: 3.5 an eighth, 7 a quarter, 14 a half.

08

Cannabis

Short for Cannabis sativa. Marijuana actually comes from the days of “Reefer Madness,” when lawmakers scared folks away from “marihuana” smuggled from Mexico. Weed can have negative connotations. And pot just doesn’t sound cool.

09

High

The psychoactive effect associated with cannabis use, after the TCH connects with CB1 receptors in your brain.

10

Dispensary

The legal place to buy your bud. Ask your local dispensary sales associates for more info.
