Cannabis Terminology Definitions

131. Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds unique to cannabis that act upon the human body’s cannabinoid receptors, producing various effects including pain relief and other medically beneficial uses. Marijuana’s most well-known cannabanoid is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) due to the fact that it is the most abundant, and also because it produces the psychoactive effects (or the “high”) that drives the plant’s recreational use. However, there are over 85 known cannabinoids all with varying effects, so THC isn’t the only one.


132. Concentrates

Concentrates are a potent consolidation of cannabinoids that are made by dissolving marijuana in its plant form into a solvent. The resulting product has very high THC levels (generally more than flowers or hashish), and can produce varying products that range from thick sticky oils (BHO) to moldable goo (budder/wax) to resinous bits (shatter). Referred to by a variety of slang terms, the classification of concentrates is often dependent on the manufacturing method and the consistency of the final product.


133. Co-op

Co-op is short for cooperative and refers to a community of patients or consumers in a given area who join together to share and receive marijuana. Co-ops usually have specific membership requirements and the product available is generally exclusive to members. In some states, co-ops exist alongside or in lieu of dispensaries.


134. Cross (genetics)

A cross (referring to crossbreeding) is the result when two different plant strains are bred together. For example, Blue Dream is a cross between Blueberry and Haze strains.


135. Dab/Dabbing

A dab is a slang term used to refer to a dose of BHO received through butane combustion and inhalation. The act of “dabbing” refers to partaking in dabs.


136. Decarboxylation

Heating cannabis to temperatures of 220 degrees or more turns non psychoactive THCA into psychoactive THC.


137. Dispensary

Dispensary is a general term used to refer to any location where a patient or consumer can legitimately and safely access cannabis, whether the business is technically an access point, pick-up location. co-op, collective or any other version of a legall cannabis distributor.


138. Entourage Effect

result of the terpenes and the cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) working together.


139. Hydroponics

Hydroponics refers to a system of gardening that does not use soil. Plants are grown in water and receive their nutrients from the addition of solutions rather than soil. For growers, hydroponic advantages include more control over nutrient intake and stability. In terms of marijuana production, plants grown hydroponically are sometimes said to have cleaner, more distinct flavors.


140. Strain

A strain is a specific variety of a plant species. Strains are developed to produce distinct desired traits in the plant and are usually named by their breeders (or by creative consumers). Strain names often reflect the plant’s appearance, its promised buzz, or its place of origin. Although the medical marijuana industry strives for consistency, strains can easily be mistakenly or purposely misidentified.




Terpenes create the aroma of cannabis. Flower strains smell different because they contain different terpenes (referred to as a “terpene profile”).

  1. Limonene
  2. Myrcene
  3. Linalool
  4. Delta 3 Carene
  5. Borneol
  6. Alpha-Pinene / Beta-Pinene
  7. Eucalyptol
  8. Terpineol
  9. Caryophyllene
  10. Cineole

Quotes About The Herb

  1. “Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.”   – Bob Marley
  1. “I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”   – Willie Nelson
  2. “Marijuana enhances our mind in a way that enables us to take a different perspective from ‘high up’, to see and evaluate our own lives and the lives of others in a privileged way. Maybe this euphoric and elevating feeling of the ability to step outside the box and to look at life’s patterns from this high perspective is the inspiration behind the slang term “high” itself.”    – Sebastian Marincolo
  1. “It is beyond my comprehension that any humane person would withhold such a beneficial substance from people in such great need simply because others use it for different purposes.”   – Steven Gould
  2. “I’ve been smoking marijuana for 44 years now, and … I think it’s a tremendous blessing.”     – Lester Grinspoon
  3. “Smoking helped put me in touch with the realm of the senses.”     – Hugh Hefner
  4. “Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?”     – Henry Ford
  5. “When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.”     – Barack Obama
  6. “Make the most of the Indian Hemp Seed and sow it everywhere.”    – George Washington
  7. “Marijuana saved my life. I have no doubts about it and you don’t need to show me any data.”     – Greg Scott
