10 Marijuana Terms You Probably Don't Know

Just because someone loves using marijuana doesn’t mean they necessarily know all the ins and outs about the industry or the culture. But that’s why we’re here to help that person out.

Here are 10 marijuana terms you probably don’t know:

1. Pretendo

Pretendo is any marijuana that looks good and smells good, but does not deliver a good high. It can also be used to describe cannabis that’s been harvested prematurely.

2. Peanut

A peanut is a joint that’s become so small it’s too hard to smoke it. Yes, there’s actually a term for that.

3. Pinner

A pinner is just a very thin joint. Basically the opposite of a fatty.

4. Shake

Shake is basically little parts of marijuana flowers that fell off the bud. You’ll often find shake at the bottom of the bag or container you keep your cannabis in. Depending on the quality, you can either put the shake into a joint and get a little leftovers, or you should just throw it out.

5. Scoobies

While you’d think Scoobies would have something to do with snacking since that’s what Scooby Doo was known for, Scoobies is actually the little bits of marijuana you get in your mouth while smoking.

6. Landrace

Landrace is a wild-grown strain of marijuana. Every region and area of the world has its own unique forms of landrace marijuana. Most of the strains you’ll find in a dispensary are hybrids or crossbreeds of landrace strains.

7. Terpenes

Terpenes are hydrocarbons found in all plants. In marijuana, terpenes are what determines a strain’s flavor and smell. They’re basically the reason why every marijuana strain is different.

8. Heirloom

An heirloom is a cannabis strain that is native to one area, and is taken and grown in a different area.

9. Ent

Depending on how nerdy or involved in cannabis culture you are, you may or may not know what an Ent is. It’s just another slang term for a cannabis user, taken from the name of the trees that walk and talk in Lord of the Rings.

10. Kind

If something is described as kind related to marijuana, it means it’s of the highest possible quality.
