Ask a Budtender: How Do New Yorkers and Midwesterners Talk about Weed?

Every region has its nicknames for cannabis. As a budtender at Alternative Herbal Health Services in Los Angeles, Toula P. has noticed the differences in how people from all over the country talk about weed. New Yorkers say "gas," for instance while Midwesterners say "fire." And that's not the only word game at play. To her family back home, Toula jokes that as a budtender she's basically a "florist" — a purveyor of specialty flowers. Gas, fire, grass, whatever you call it, she's got it. 


There are so many strains of marijuana available it can be nearly impossible to figure out which one is right for you. And sure, a knowledgeable budtender could point you in the right direction, but we think we've figured out a better method for choosing a marijuana strain. Take our quiz below to find out which cannabis strain is your true soulmate.
