Cat Piss, Cheese, and Alaskan Thuderfuck, are just some of the cannabis strains that budtenders deem the worst names. There are more strains available than ever before, now that weed is legal in all of Canada and a number of states in the US. Now, growers are creating new strains daily, which also requires a creative name daily, so many are thinking of the most bizarre to attract consumers. With more strains and names on the shelf, cannabis dispensaries are becoming more overwhelming for a first-time cannabis consumer, which makes budtenders all the more useful. A budtender is the person behind the counter at a cannabis dispensary, there to help consumers choose which cannabis strains and products are best for their wants and needs. Every dispensary is different with different strains, so budtenders are a valuable resource for both new and old consumers searching for the perfect cannabis product.
Civilized sat down with budtenders from all over Los Angeles to learn about cannabis culture and dispensaries in our weekly series Ask A Budtender. In this episode of the series, the budtenders discuss the worst strain names they've seen in the industry.
