Words for Cannabis: 3 Things We Need Words for in the Cannabis Industry

There are more than 1,200 slang words for cannabis.

And yet, there are still so many words that we’re missing from our cannabis lexicon.

And we’ll continue to need to evolve our language as long as the budding cannabis industry continues to grow and grow.

So without further ado, here are some words we still definitely need.

1. The kind of person who enjoys cannabis but doesn’t fit into a stereotype.

We’re all so used to calling people who enjoy cannabis “stoners” and “potheads”.

But because of cannabis’s history, those names still carry a stigma.

And what about the people who enjoy cannabis but don’t use it all the time? Are they still considered stoners?
What about people who never smoke but eat edibles all the time? Are they still considered “potheads”?

We think there needs to be a new word invented just for the kind of people who don’t fit into the typical stereotype of “stoner” or “pothead”.

We like the sound of cannabis connoisseur, or if you want to get hip with it, canna-connoisseur. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.

2. The kind of person who uses cannabis products but isn’t interested in getting high.

So here we have another group of people who love and support cannabis, but only use products that don’t give them that euphoric feeling that you get typically when consuming THC.

So these are your topical users and CBD fans.
Using a cannabis-infused salve or topical on your skin won’t get you high, and neither will a purely CBD product.

So even though these people aren’t getting high, there are a huge number of people using these products all the time!

They’re not “stoners” or “potheads”, right?

That’s why we think there needs to be a new word invented for this awesome group of people.

3. Another word for “vaping” that isn’t confused with e-cigarettes.

When we say “vaping”, you might think about the convenient, sleek, and potent cannabis vape pens.

Or, you may think about the clunky e-cigarettes that have nothing to do with cannabis.

Whether you’re a fan of e-cigarettes or not, we think this industry deserves a new word for vaporizing cannabis that isn’t so commonly confused with its nicotine counterpart.

We think “atomizing” would be a cool (albeit nerdy) alternative for vaping, since it technically does mean the same thing. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
