Is it a Strain or a Strand?

Partly due to the false stereotype in mainstream America that marijuana was a detrimental substance, cannabis culture developed a vernacular all its own during the 20th century. Evidence of this can be found by simply reading a list of the many names by which cannabis has been known over the years – marijuana, weed, ganja, grass, pot, Mary Jane and bud, just to name a few.

In this class, we’ll take a look at the fascinating evolution of the language of cannabis. More importantly, we’ll arm you with the vocabulary you’ll need to understand – whether you’re a casual consumer looking to purchase the right product or an industry professional hoping to impress a potential employer, knowing the modern language of cannabis is important.
