Common Stoner Terms and Phrases




From Cheech & Chong, to Dazed and Confused, to Pineapple Express, the stoner movement has developed more than its fair share of inside jokes and made-up words.

These phrases are lasting and truly precious gems — the fruits of stupidly stoned giggle-fits shared between generations of potheads in smokey basements or secluded forest clearings. They range from the practical to the absurd, and are often considered to be key components in any stoner or DEA agent’s vocabulary.

Here is a list of all the common stoner terms and phrases listed in the open-source cannabis dictionary.

Zig Zags

Definition:

Yerba

Hierba, Marijuana, Grass

Water Hash

Bubble Hash

A cheap and popular method to making hash that involves ice, water and microscreen extraction bags. This is a slightly tedious process in that it requires a bit of preparation to separate the trichomes from within the cannabis in order to reach the resin.

Definition:
Another of the many euphamisms for cannabis.

Vaporizer

Vape, Volcano

An alternative to smoking and burning marijuana, a vaporizer activates the ingredients in the plant with enough heat for the user to inhale. Vaporizers provide an easier way to use marijuana while still experiencing the psychoactive effects, and reduces carcinogens from the burning of the plant. A few advantages to a vaporizer is that it works more efficiently than a bong, as the plant doesn't burn while not in use; there is nearly zero to no smoke which makes it easy to use in the home without the lingering smell of marijuana. Conveniently sized vaporizers, such as the "e-vape", are a popular way to inhale cannabis.
Read More

Tulip

Definition:
A specific type of joint or spliff rolled to look like a tulip. The rolling process generally uses two or three papers combined to form square, which is then rolled into a large cone before being twisted at one end and then fused to the end of a sturdy, straight joint (the stem of the tulip). They will get you extremely blazed, but probably waste a lot of weed doing so.
Read More

Trim Run

Definition:
Trim run describes a concentrate made from the trimmings of a cannabis plant. Growers often make huge batches of trim run because they often are left with huge quantities of leaves, stems, and tiny nugs after harvesting a crop.

Read More

Trim

Leaf, Trimmings, Detritus
Definition:
Trim is the leftover bits of marijuana leaf and smaller buds that you collect huge piles of when trimming a freshly-harvested plant.

Read More

Spliff

Definition:
Specifically refers to a combination of tobacco and marijuana rolled together in a cigarette. Stoners often don't like spliffs or tobacco in any form; therefore, it's considered good etiquette to mention when a joint has tobacco inside before passing it. Some people have also started using the term spliff to refer to any type of joint, which causes much confusion among certain crowds. For many American circles, spliffs were popularized via tourist trips to Europe and other international destinations. It's become a particularly popular trend in the American Northwest.

Definition:
To hot box a location, you must smoke so much weed inside that the air is literally filled with marijuana smoke. A proper hot box works best inside of small spaces, such as a closet, bathroom, or car. You could theoretically hotbox larger spaces, like a department store or the White House, but that would require quite a lot of marijuana.

Hookah

The hookah is a traditionally Indian smoking device that has a centralized bowl with many tubes protruding from it. It is designed so that more than one individual may hit the bowl at the same time. There are such thing are hookah bars, where friends can sit and smoke hookah tobacco together, but putting marijuana in such 'rented' hookahs may be frowned upon. Depending on where you are, it could also get you arrested. Putting marijuana in your own personal hookah, however, allows a communal smoking experience.

Hash

Definition:
Hash is the serum, or resin, collected from the flowers of the cannibis plant and a colloqial term for marijuana. The activie ingredient in hash is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and hash can be smoked in joints or out of bongs or pipes.  The effects of a high caused by smoking hash include sleepiness, pain relief, a feeling of relaxation, and increased appreciation of music and food. Most of the THC from hash is absorbed and catalyzed within the first few seconds of entry into the body, so holding smoke into the lungs for a longer amount of time will not hasten the achieved high.

One-half ounce (about 14 grams) of weed. Not to be confused with one-half pound of weed (which is a very large amount).
Read More

Grinder

Definition:
A device that’s used to break up marijuana. Typically people want to grind their marijuana for one of two reasons. One, it’s easier to roll ground marijuana into a joint. And two, ground marijuana burns more evenly in a bowl. It’s possible to grind marijuana by hand, but often that gets your hands sticky and smelly. Grinders usually have either nails or wooden poles on the inside. They need to be cleaned regularly.
Read More

Green Out

Definition:
When someone smokes too much weed and gets way too high. Roughly equivalent to blacking out, except with weed instead of liquor. Most often the person who has greened out will become very quiet.

Definition:
Glass is the material most commonly used when smoking marijuana out of a pipe. Glass pipes can vary in color and size and can be decorated with unique designs and patterns. Glass pipes can cost quite a lot of money and sometimes break easily, but are considered much more desirable than metal pipes, which can get uncomfortably hot and give extremely harsh hits, or wooden pipes, which will not last as long and can get permanently stained with an unpleasant flavor.
Read More

Gasper

Joint, Cigarette
Definition:
A gasper is another term for a hand-rolled joint or cigarette. It's an older term, usually used by older generations, but it references the sensation that you're gasping for breath after taking a particularly large hit off a joint, spliff, or cigarette.

Read More

Ganja

Ganj, Ghanja

Fried

Greened out, baked, really high
Definition:
When you're fried on pot, you've gotten really deep. Maybe you were already really tired, or maybe you've been stoned in the sunshine for hours and the good times are starting to take their toll — when you're fried, you might well be down for the count without some time to sober up or a swift kick of excitement.

Read More

Fatty

Cone
Definition:
A large joint or spliff. Usually, if you're going to smoke a fatty, your goal is to get extremely high. Fattys are often also considered to be cones, but not 100% of the time — it is definitely possible to roll an extremely fat, but straight-lined joint.
Read More

Extract

Concentrate
Definition:
Extract is another term for concentrate, a highly-potent substance derived from the marijuana plant that will get you seriously messed up if you smoke too much of it. Extracts are usually produced in a very scientific manner, and producing them should generally be left to the experts, as it can be very hard and sometimes dangerous.
Read More

Ent

Definition:
An ent is a reference to someone that smokes marijuana. The term references the "ents," or giant tree people, that are featured in popular fantasy series The Lord of the Rings. The name was popularized on Reddit, where stoners generally use it to distinguish themselves as 420-friendly.
Read More

Endo

Indo, Indoor
Definition:
Describes the crystally, most premium buds of a marijuana plant. Endo is usually right at the tip of very large nugs. It is partially due to it collecting falling trichomes from other parts of the flower, as marijuana is often cured hanging upside down from a line.
Read More

Eighth

Definition:
One-eighth ounce (about 3.5 grams) of weed.
Read More

Edibles

Definition:
Usually sweet treats (but also can be savory) that have been infused with cannabis and can be consumed orally to get high. Brownies and cookies are the most popular sweet edibles. Many prefer eating edibles over smoking weed, since inhaling smoke does damage the lungs. Eating infused edibles, however, can get you extremely stoned, and it's advisable to never eat edibles just because you're hungry, as the quick digestion can produce unforeseen results.
Read More

Earwax

Definition:
This product is made by whipping oils extracted from hash. You can mix the oil using a whisk that you would typically use for whipping heavy cream into whipped cream. However, unlike the baking process, the hash oil must be heated while being whipped with the whisk. The oil substance will become lighter and fluffier in texture, and is often considered more delightful to smoke.

Dutch/Dutchie

Joint, Blunt, Spliff
Definition:
Refers to a blunt, joint, or any marijuana cigarette. Also refers to any type of marijuana, not just from the Netherlands.
Read More

Dugout

Bat
Definition:
A dugout is a piece of paraphernalia designed for discrete smokers trying to get high in public. A pocket-sized two-chambered box — with one side designed to hold your stash and the other designed to hold a one-hitter pipe — the dugout is perfect if you want to look less obviously sketchy in public and still medicate.
Read More

Downstem

Definition:
The piece that connects the bowl to the water source. The smoke travels from the bowl containing cannabis through the downstem and into the water so that you can inhale from the bong or bubbler and take in cannabis smoke in a lighter and smoother form. Only devices that involve water filtration require downstems. Also, it can be fun to look at the amount of smoke going through the downstem to determine how high somebody is about to get.
Read More

Down smoke

Shotgunning.
Definition:
Smoke from somebody else.
Read More

Doobie

Joint
Definition:
A term used by older individuals and past generations to refer to a joint. The term is still used in certain circles, but its precedence has largely fallen off in recent years — perhaps because it sounds so silly.
Read More

Domeless Nail

Definition:
A creation that combines the dome and nail that were originally separate entities. It is usually made from heat-resistant material such as glass or ceramic. The domeless nail is used for dabbing and allows an individual to inhale smoke through a hole above a narrow section that the substance is dabbed into. Overall, the single piece reduces the mess and frustration of burning your fingers when adjusting the nail and dome combination.
Read More

Dome

Definition:
Similar to the traditional definition of dome, a stoner's dome covers or hovers over another structure. The dome-shaped piece is made of glass and allows you to catch smoke and vapor from an oil rig. May also reference the head, or mental state.
Read More

Ditch Weed

Schwag
Definition:
A substance that appears to be weed, but really isn't. Ditch weed will often be mistaken for actual cannabis, but really isn't worth the time or effort to discern if its real or not — better to just stick with safe, regulated markets like in Colorado or Washington.
Read More

Dispensary

Definition:
A place where you can buy all different types and forms of cannabis. These stores only exist where smoking weed has been legalized — generally for medicinal use, though states are beginning the process of recreational legalization. When buying the product from a dispensary, dealers are no longer needed, with the person serving the public being a "budtender". At a dispensary, you can usually purchase paraphernalia, edibles, teas, oils, and weed.
Read More

Dime Bag

10 sack
Definition:
Ten dollars worth of weed or most likely a gram.
Read More

Diffuser

Definition:
A component of many bubblers, bongs, and water pipes that aids in cooling the smoke prior to inhalation, thus making it a smoother hit for your lungs. The diffuser is usually located at the bottom of the downstem, touching the water, and this diffusion allows for air to escape. There are several different types of diffusers, some with more holes than others, but all of them have the same purpose: to provide additional surface area for the formation of bubbles, which helps air flow through the smoking device for a smoother hit.
Read More

Diesel

Dank
Definition:
Diesel describes a particularly pungent cannabis strain, most notable for its distinct odor and sometimes overpowering potency. The name originates from the strain's smell, which is often linked to distinctive odors like diesel fuel or skunk.
Read More

Decarboxylate

Definition:
Decarboxylation of marijuana involves exposure of the cannabinoids to extremely hot temperatures (like smoking), thus removing the acidic component of the compound and converting it into a more desired cannabinoid. Acidic compounds such as THCA and CBDA are transformed into THC and CBD respectively. Once cannabis decarboxylated, it can be used in edibles or tinctures.
Read More

Dank

The Dankness, Dankity, Dankstrocity, Your Dankiness
Definition:
A term used by people who regularly get high to refer to something of superior quality. More specifically, it can be used to refer to very strong smelling and thus high quality weed. Dank would be synonymous with words like remarkable and awesome. Generally speaking, it can be used to refer to anything positively.
Read More

Dab

BHO, wax, shatter
Definition:
A highly concentrated cannabis extract. The precise definition of "dabs" varies by your location, but it is widely regarded as a more efficient, cleaner way to consume cannabis. There are many ways of creating marijuana concentrates that would qualify as "dabs," with closed loop extraction creating the most efficient concentrates.
Read More

Dabbing

Definition:
A new popular process of getting high that involves using a dabber tool to gather some hash oil and place it on the heated surface of a smoking device, commonly called a rig. The reason to use this process instead of simply smoking cannabis in a bowl is that the THC content is much higher in extracted oil, and generally the best way to use the oil is by dabbing.
Read More

Dabber

Definition:
A small tool used to apply dabs. Kind of like a spoon, this tool is made to withstand intense temperatures when dabbing your concentrate onto a heated surface. Alternatively, a "dabber" could be a person who dabs, although this usage is less frequent.
Read More

Cure

Definition:
The curing process gives weed its sweet smell and smoking qualities. It makes the marijuana less harsh and improves potency. A good cure lasts 3 to 8 weeks, so if you’re growing your own weed, you might have to wait a little while before tapping into that sweet stash. You can also take bad weed and cure it to make it better: just put it in an airtight glass container and away from light.
Read More

Crystals

Kief, Trichomes
Definition:
Crystals are the tiny sparkles on the cannabis plant. They are technically known as trichomes, and contain the majority of the plant's THC and other cannabinoids. In other words: the more crystals, the better. If there are a lot, you’ve got some good weed and will get a more intense high. You can catch the crystals that fall off in a grinder and have kief to sprinkle on top of your bowls or smoke by itself.
Read More

Crutch

Filter
Definition:
Usually made from a small piece of thick paper (such as the inner lining of a cigarette carton or the outer flap of a pack of rolling papers), a crutch is a short cylinder rolled into a joint or spliff at the side that touches your lips. The crutch serves a dual purpose: first, it prevents the end of the joint from getting wet and collapsing in on itself, making smoking it rather unpleasant. Second, it makes rolling the joint easier: the shape of the crutch determines, at least to a certain extent, the shape of the joint.
Read More

Cross Joint

Definition:
A large joint with another smaller joint that intersects the main joint at a 90-degree angle. Both ends of the smaller joint are lit in conjunction with the end of the larger one, and, if rolled well, the three ends burn at the same rate.
Read More

Cross Faded

Definition:
Being high and drunk at the same time. A lot of people enjoy getting cross faded, but it can quickly turn against you if you take it too far. Smoking at the end of a long night of drinking, for instance, can lead to a severe case of the spins and frequently vomiting.
Read More

Couchy

Couch-lock
Definition:
Usually used in reference to indica-heavy strains that make you groggy or sleepy. If you smoke some couchy weed while you’re on a couch, you’re probably not getting up anytime soon.
Read More

Cotton Mouth

Dry Mouth
Definition:
This term describes having an extremely dry mouth from smoking or orally consuming cannabis, and can ultimately result in dehydration. For long time users of marijuana, cotton mouth creates a decline in taste buds and poor oral hygiene. Cotton mouth can be avoided by remembering to drink water as you smoke, but it is sometimes hard to remember anything as you smoke... so it's still a common occurrence.
Read More

Cooked

Baked, stoned, high
Definition:
Marijuana slang culture seems to really dig culinary themes — probably because of the never-ending munchies pandemic that is a stoner's daily struggle. In any event, when you're cooked it's a lot like being baked, only instead of waiting to rise in an oven you might be thrown into a stir fry or scrambled up for breakfast. Or instead of being really high, you're just really high and using a different word to describe it.
Read More

Cone

Fatty
Definition:
A cone is a style of joint that is wider at the end you light and narrower at the end from which you draw. Cones are easiest to roll using a paper crutch or filter on the narrow end, because they provide sometimes-necessary support for the paper to hold large amounts of weed. In Australia, "cone" is slang for bowl. In Europe, cone joints are widely used, but are usually rolled as spliffs (with tobacco mixed in with the weed). 
Read More

Concentrate

Definition:
In the marijuana business, concentrates are quickly growing in popularity. Concentrates are generally super-strong substances derived from marijuana flowers: commonly known as hash or oil, concentrates often have to undergo special preparation processes in order to be enjoyed by consumers. It is an umbrella term that will pop up often when discussing marijuana intake methods, and its growing popularity suggests that it will only become more and more mainstream as legalization efforts continue.
Read More

Cola

Top Flower, Endo
Definition:
The cola is the large flower cluster at the top of a cannabis plant's main stem (larger side branches can also contain cola nugs). The cola is heavily-coated in kief, which makes it both the strongest and tastiest part of a weed plant to smoke.
Read More

CO2 Extraction

Definition:
The process through which carbon dioxide is utilized to extract the cannabinoid oils — marijuana's "liquid gold" — from a marijuana plant. These cannabinoid oils can then be easily mixed with any type of food. THC is one of the principal components of cannabinoid oils and is essentially what the process is designed to extract.
Read More

CO2

Hash oil, CO2 Oil, CO2 Wax
Definition:
CO2 refers to cannabis extracts: specifically, the solvent used during the extraction process. Whereas BHO extracts use Butane, CO2 extracts use CO2, a solvent which is gaseous at room temperature so it will eventually evaporate. Also, CO2 is not flammable so the risk of blowing yourself up is much lower.
Read More

Closed-Loop Extraction

Definition:
Closed-loop extraction is a process in which the cannabinoid oils are extracted from marijuana in a contained, mechanized environment. The extraction process is handled by a machine that keeps the solvent from being exposed to air, and because of its contained nature this method has been ruled safer than other methods — some of which can lead to unfortunate accidents such as explosions.
Read More

Clone

Definition:
A clone is an exact replica of a host marijuana plant; it looks (and smokes) exactly like the marijuana plant that was used to create it. A clone can be created from just a part of the plant; a branch is clipped from the host and is then dipped in cloning gel which helps it grow correctly once planted. After the cloning process is completed, another clone can be created by simply clipping off another piece of the host (or fresh clone) and repeating the process all over again.

Chillum

Bat, One-Hitter
Definition:
Either used in reference to a small device that can be carried around discreetly and holds a very small amount of weed. Chillums or one-hitters are especially common in places where marijuana consumption is still strictly illegal, as its easier to hide/lose your paraphernalia in times when the law decides to infringe upon your personal privileges.
Read More

Chiefing

Toking, Smoking
Definition:
Chiefing means to smoke marijuana: the means of smoking (bowl, joint, oil) doesn’t matter much, but the phrase is usually used in regard to high quantities of high quality chronic.
Read More

Chiefing

Puff puff puff puff puff pass
Definition:
To hold on to the blunt (bowl, bong, pipe, GB, etc..), taking consecutive hits without passing it around.
Read More

Cherried

Definition:
A bowl that will stay burning without the need for a lighter or match. Cherried bowls are much simpler to smoke because you just have to keep hitting it to keep it cherried. It's important to note, however, that because your pot will be continuously burning whether or not you're smoking it, you have to be careful that a cherried bowl doesn't smoke itself into nothing. Generally, unless your weed is especially dry or your smoking partner has lungs the size of basketballs, bowls only cherry when they're getting close to finished.
Read More

Cheeba

Weed, Pot, Herb, etc.
Definition:
One of the many, many synonyms for the word “weed.” Depending on your location, it can also refer to heroin. In fact, the original word comes from a bastardization of “chiva,” which in Spanish is slang for heroin. One of Colorado’s most famous edibles companies, Cheeba Chews, has popularized the use of this term to refer to weed.
Read More

Cashed

Finished
Definition:
When you’ve finished your bowl. People disagree on when exactly a bowl is cashed. Some say it’s as soon as the weed starts turning black, whereas others say it’s when the weed has basically been turned into ash.
Read More

Carb Cap

Cap
Definition:
Used in dabbing, where you put concentrated weed onto a nail (hot surface), and then smoke the vapors. The carb cap fits over said nail and allows you to vaporize a full hit at a lower temperature. This lets your weed keep its flavor, which becomes forfeit at higher and higher temperatures.
Read More

Cannivore

Medible ent, cannafoodie
Definition:
Someone who prefers to eat cannabis rather than smoke or vaporize it. Some cannivores might partake in these activities from time to time, although many cannivores choose to eat their weed exclusively due to health reasons or personal aversion to smoking. It is rumored that many of our nation's top professional athletes are secretly cannivores.
Read More

Cannabidiol

CBD
Definition:
The second-most common cannabinoid (chemical unique to weed) found in marijuana, CBDs are the non-psychoactive ingredient of marijuana that is used to treat a number of diseases, including epilepsy and autism. It was almost bred out of weed because people were more concerned with getting high off THC, but recently it’s been making a comeback for the aforementioned medical reasons. It's common in hemp products, which means it's technically legal in the United States. But at the federal level, it's still illegal to use cannabidiol to get high.

Perma-fried, Stoned
Definition:
Having smoked so much as to be in a permanent state of mellowness/laziness. Also refers to being abnormally high from marijuana.
Read More

Burn One

Smoke
Definition:
The phrase to 'burn one' means to smoke some weed, usually meaning to smoke only one joint or one bowl. You might be most tempted to 'burn one' during a lunch break at work, or during an intermission at a theater. It's almost always a very quick smoke session, so you can get right back to whatever you were doing beforehand — even if it's just sitting on your couch. You can also say you're going to 'burn one down' — if you're not with a bunch of narcs, they will probably know you're talking about weed and not your neighbor's house.
Read More

Budtender

Definition:
A specialist who works at a dispensary. Essentially a pharmacist with a specialization in weed; they’ll make sure you get the type/amount of weed that you need for medical or recreational purposes. The term itself is a combination of bud (the part of the weed plant that you smoke) and bartender. They're becoming more and more common now that weed has been legalized.
Read More

Budder

Extract, Concentrate
Definition:
Cannabis extract that’s way stronger than regular cannabis. It’s an opaque form of hash oil with a concentration of about 80-90% THC. In the usual form, you can’t get weed that’s stronger than 30%, so it's quite potent.
Read More

Bud

Buds, Flower, Bloom
Definition:
The cannabis plant’s flowers. This is the part of the plant that you smoke. Once the cannabis is suitably grown, cannabis farmers have to dry the buds and cure them properly before they can be smoked. Because this is the part of the plant you smoke, people often equate the terms “bud” and “weed.”
Read More

Bubbler

Bub
Definition:
A bubbler is essentially a cross between a pipe and a bong. It's like a pipe because it has the size and shape of a pipe, and also includes a hole or "carb" on the side of the bowl. But it also usually has a bulb under the bowl to hold water, allowing water filtration just like in a bong. This is useful if you want something portable like a pipe that still has the potency of a bong. It is named for the sound the water makes when you smoke it.
Read More

Bowl

Definition:
The part of your weed instrument of choice (pipe or bong) where you pack (place) the weed. On pipes, there’s often a hole on the side of it that you cover when inhaling weed smoke. Alternatively, bowl can be used to refer to the pipe as a whole, or it can be used as a crude unit of measurement.
Read More

Bouldered

Stoned, Wasted
Definition:
Being bouldered is experiencing extreme cannabis intoxication. Consider it a derivative of the word 'stoned,' but only to be used to describe an extreme excess of highness.
Read More

Bongwater

Definition:
The awful-smelling water at the bottom of a bong. Despite what some may think, drinking this will not get you high, or higher. It only tastes awful and can possibly cause stomach pain. It should be changed after every smoke session, and is sometimes chilled with ice to enhance the smoking experience.
Read More

Bong

Water pipe
Definition:
A water pipe with a larger chamber than your average bubbler. Typically, bongs have a removable stem and bowl that you pull out to clear the chamber, rather than the typical "carb" that you would find on most glass pieces that do not use water. Bongs come in unlimited shapes and sizes, and are commonly used by more dedicated stoners due to the fact that they increase the amount of smoke you can inhale with one hit.
Read More

Bomb Weed

Bomb herb, the good, hydro, killer bud, presidential
Definition:
That good weed. Bomb weed is weed that gets you high to the point that you feel like you're going to explode. Although that might seem risky to non-consumers, true stoners know that this is a good thing.
Read More

Bogart

Camping
Definition:
To hold onto something for too long, when it’s supposed to be shared. Often used as a reminder to someone who has been holding a joint meant to be shared. The name Bogart comes from famed silver screen actor Humphrey Bogart, who would often let a cigarette dangle off the side of his mouth, even though he wasn’t actually smoking it.
Read More

Blunt Wrap

Definition:
Tobacco-based rolling paper designed for people who enjoy rolling their own blunts. The paper mimics the casing of regular cigars, but can come in a wide variety of sizes and flavors. Blunt wraps are taxed as tobacco products in various states, and may require a license to sell.
Read More

Blunt

Dutchie
Definition:
A method of smoking marijuana which consists of hollowing out a cigar, filling it with marijuana, and rerolling it. Blunts tend to be the favorite method of smoking at parties, because one blunt, even with a dozen people smoking it, can burn for a long time. The method was originally nicknamed after the Phillies Blunt brand of cigars. "Dutchies" referring to blunts rolled from Dutch Master cigars, is another common name. People who avoid tobacco are generally averse to smoking blunts, because most cigar casings are made from tobacco leaf.
Read More

Blue Dream

Definition:
This renowned sativa-heavy hybrid has made its way out of California to become one of the most sought-after strains on the left coast. Bred from a cross between Blueberry indica and Haze sativa, Blue Dream is a great daytime strain: it provides symptom relief (read: a real heady high) without knocking you on your ass for the rest of the day.
Read More

Blitzed

Blazed, high, stoned, lit
Definition:
Blitzed is most likely a permutation of the word "blazed," although there is no traceable etymological connection. Someone probably was too high to know what they were saying when the phrase "blitzed" was first coined. It may refer to a heightened state of intoxication beyond what is typical, due to a particularly strong batch of weed that causes effects immediately upon inhalation. "Blitzed" calls to mind the "blitzkrieg" of WWII and "blitzing" in American football terminology.
Read More

Blazed

High, stoned, lit
Definition:
One of the many words for being high. Blazed can also be used as a verb, such as "let's blaze, bro." This term is typically used by white college bros who either mountain bike, snowboard, or play lots of Call of Duty.
Read More

Bhang

Weed, Marijuana, Ganja, Tea
Definition:
Bhang is frequently used as a synonym for marijuana flowers, though the word itself originally refers to a cannabis-infused beverage produced in the Indian subcontinent. This beverage is occasionally prepared with raw, unheated flowers and is not considered a drug. Sometimes, however, it is heated during preparation and thus made with activated THC that will get the consumer very high.
Read More

Baked

Being stoned, high, toked up
Definition:
When you're baked, you're quite stoned indeed. The term most likely comes from weed being associated with increased paranoia, which could easily lead one to the morbid thought of being baked in an oven. Generally, however, being baked often only means you won't feel much like getting off the couch for another twenty minutes or so, at least.
Read More

Bake Sale

Definition:
A slang term referring to a smoke-out session, drawing on the already-established of the phrase “to get baked.”
Read More

Backroll

Flagroll
Definition:
When backrolling a doobie, you turn the rolling paper inside out and roll with the gum on the inside of the joint. It’s usually more difficult, but the end result is nicer to smoke because you end up smoking less paper. By putting the gum on the inside, you only need to wrap your mix in paper one time before you can seal it, leaving most of the rolling paper hanging on the side to be torn or burnt off before lighting up. Because the flap of excess paper sort of resembles a flag, some people also know this as ‘flagrolling.’
Read More

Aristocrat

Big Pinner
Definition:
Typically rolled by self-absorbed college kids, the aristocrat is a special type of joint that is used to display your superior social status and awesome joint-rolling skills. A properly-rolled aristocrat will be extremely long and very narrow. Conical features should be avoided. The best aristocrats can up to 16 inches long — cough, cough. It works best using a long, thin crutch, which lends itself to maintaining a long, thin shape as you roll the doobie.
Read More

Alcohol Extraction

Definition:
A process in which cannabis is placed in alcohol to extract the THC from the plant.
