OG Cannabis

Dictionary

Adult Use
Refers to cannabis bought for recreational purposes rather than for medical uses.

Atomizer

The part of a vaporizer device that heats liquid strains of cannabis and converts them to a vapor state for inhalation.

Bong

A water pipe is typically used to smoke cannabis. A bowl on the bong holds the cannabis for heating and connects to a water-filled base. The water filters the smoke, making it less harsh and smoother inhalation.

Breeder/breeding

Breeding is the crossing of cannabis plants to produce desirable traits. Cannabis breeders are knowledgeable in breeding to purify and strengthen strains, combine strain traits, or enhance certain characteristics, including aroma and potency.

Cannabis Concentrate

Cannabis concentrates are the result of distilling the most desirable components of the cannabis plant. Here are some of the most common and popular concentrates.

  • Shatter – Shatter gets its name from its translucent appearance. It is the result of extracting THC, CBD, and other components of the cannabis plant using butane or other solvents. In cannabis culture, shatter is consumed by dabbing or vaping.
  • Wax – A solvent-derived cannabis concentrate that resembles wax and is consumed by dabbing or vaping. Wax is popular in cannabis culture for its high concentration of THC and flavor.
  • Badder – Badder, or batter, is a solvent-based cannabis concentrate. It is agitated during the extraction process, resulting in an appearance similar to frosting or cake batter.
  • Rosin – A solventless process in which high heat and pressure are applied to cannabis to release the resin from the plant. Rosin contains high amounts of THC and CBD.
  • Rosin – A solventless process in which high heat and pressure are applied to cannabis to release the resin from the plant. Rosin contains high amounts of THC and CBD.
  • Crumble – Also known in cannabis culture as honeycomb because of its appearance and texture, crumble is a solvent-based cannabis concentrate with a dry, powdery consistency. Crumble has a high THC content.
  • Bubble hash – Named for the manner in which it bubbles when smoked, bubble hash is a cannabis concentrate derived from the cold water/ice water extraction method. Cannabis flowers are agitated in bags of ice water. As they freeze, resin glands break off of the flowers.
  • Hash – Also known as hashish, this is a cannabis concentrate made by compressing and processing the plant’s trichomes.
  • Full Melt – In cannabis culture, full melt is a dry, high-grad form of concentrate that melts fully and, therefore, leaves no residue behind.
  • Kief – In cannabis culture, kief refers to trichomes, or resin glands, sifted from cannabis flowers through a mesh screen or sieve. Cannabis trichomes produce a sticky resin, which contains terpenes and cannabinoids. Kief is potent, often sprinkled on top of joints and blunts or even infused into food.
  • Blunt – A hollowed-out cigar or other tobacco leaf wrapper filled with cannabis flower for smoking. This is a popular method of smoking cannabis because a blunt burns slower lasts longer, and can also add a tobacco “buzz” to the cannabis high.
  • RSO/Rick Simpson Oil – This is perhaps the most well-known variety of full-extract cannabis oil or FECO oil. This highly concentrated whole-plant extract provides broad-spectrum cannabinoids and terpenes and was popularized by Canadian medical cannabis advocate Rick Simpson, who used the oil to treat cancerous growths on his arm.
  • Live Concentrate – This cannabis extraction method freezes cannabis to subcritical temperatures and does not use drying or curing. Eliminating drying and curing allows the plant to retain more of its terpenes, which can be rendered dormant as a result of those processes. The “live resin” that results from this process preserves more of the flavors and aroma of the terpenes.

Couchlock

In cannabis culture, couchlock describes the feeling of physical sedation that can result from consumption.

Curing 

Is the process of slowly removing moisture from cannabis plants as they grow. Controlling moisture levels prevents the evaporation of terpenes and cannabinoids and enables the grower to control flavor, aroma, potency, and other characteristics.

Dab/dabbing

In cannabis culture, a dab is a small, concentrated amount of cannabis extract, such as hash oil, wax, or shatter. It is consumed by “dabbing” it with a heat source to produce a vapor that is inhaled.

  • Rig – A pipe that is used to inhale cannabis concentrates that are vaporized through the process of dabbing.
  • Nail – An attachment that holds the cannabis concentrate for placement in a dab rig.
  • Torch – A propane-heated tool used with a rig that produces a consistent flame to fully dissolve a dab concentrate in a rig.

Decarb / Decarboxylation 

Decarboxylation is the chemical reaction that occurs when a cannabinoid is heated. “Decarbing” enhances the cannabinoid’s ability to interact with the body’s receptors by activating THCa and CBDa into THC and CBD, respectively. In medical cannabis, this process results in the high that recreational users seek and the pain relief and other therapeutic benefits medical patients seek.

Delta-9

This is the THC cannabinoid molecule that’s recognized as the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis.—that is the substance that causes people who use marijuana to feel high. Delta-9 may cause euphoria, happiness, sedation, as well as symptom relief from some medical conditions.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

A biological system made up of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. The ECS may help regulate sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction, pain sensation, and many other functions in the human body.

High

This refers to the positive physical and psychological effects that are often produced by the psychoactive components of cannabis, including THC. Many factors affect a person’s high, including the dosage, consumption method, cannabinoids, and potency.

Medical Cannabis

Medicinal cannabis is recommended by a doctor as therapeutic treatment for a chronic or terminal illness. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found naturally in the cannabis plant that have been shown to be potentially useful in relieving symptoms that result from diseases or their treatment protocols.

Pipe/Bowl

The part of a pipe or other smoking device that holds the cannabis flower.

Psychoactive

Any chemical that acts primarily on the central nervous system and alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in mood, behavior, or consciousness.

Potency

Potency refers to how strong of an effect a marijuana strain will have on the patient/user, whether it’s recreational or medicinal. Potency is typically denoted by the level of the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol THC.

Pre-Rolls

Joint- A joint consists of a cannabis flower, or marijuana rolled up inside a rolling paper for smoking. Papers are typically made of hemp, rice, flax, or sisal and are thin so that they burn more slowly.

Processing

Refers to the various methods and steps taken to prepare cannabis and its by-products for sale and consumption, including curing, drying, cleaning, ingredient extraction, and packaging.

Ratio

Ratios indicate the amount of CBD and THC in relation to one another in a cannabis product. CBD: THC ratios are relevant in all forms of cannabis, including flowers, concentrates, edibles, topicals, tinctures, and capsules.

TAC

Total aerobic count, or TAC, is a measure of the active cannabinoids a cannabis product contains at the time it is tested. Measurements include those for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), and other cannabinoids.

Terpenes

Found in the essential oils of plants, terpenes in a cannabis plant are the chemical compounds that determine its flavor and aromatic profile. Terpenes are said to impact how a strain of cannabis makes the user feel. In medical cannabis, different terpene profiles can be created with the goal of relieving particular symptoms or ailments.

  • Botanical – Botanical terpenes are extracted from plants, such as lavender or cloves, via a high-heat distillation process. They are often added to cannabis oils for their health benefits, including calming or soothing properties, nausea relief, and more.
  • Synthetic– Synthetic terpenes are produced through a chemical process in which flavor/aroma profiles can be manipulated, resulting in more intense flavors and smells than their organic (botanical) counterparts.
  • Full-spectrum – In cannabis culture, this refers to cannabis products that contain components of the entire plant, including phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Because the various components complement each other’s therapeutic benefits, full-spectrum products are often considered more effective for medicinal purposes.
