Rosetta Stoner: 20 Advanced Terms

By The Stoner's Cookbook

So you've practiced and nailed the usage of the beginner and intermediate terms, now it's time to find out what all the big kids are talking about.

  • Couchlock

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    When you're relaxing on the good stuff and don't feel like moving at all or ever. Indica and kush provide this affect.

  • Green Out

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    When one smokes so much that they pass out momentarily or vomit.

  • Cannabidiol (CBD)

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    One of the primary chemical compounds found in weed. CBD is known to provide the most medical benefits.

  • Cannabinoids

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The chemical compounds found in cannabis that react on cannabinoid receptors activating neurotransmitters. There are at least 85 known to exist. The most common cannabinoids are THC and CBD.

  • Pistils

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The hairs that are usually red or orange in color. They're purpose is to collect pollen from male plants, but these little guys have little affect on flavor or potency.

  • Trichomes

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The little, crystal-like hairs covering marijuana plants, specifically the buds. These contain that psychoactive chemical we love: THC.

  • Terpenes

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Found in many plants, terpenes give each strain a unique smell and flavor. Over 200 types of terpenes have been found in marijuana.

  • Shatter

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Shatter is a concentrate with the highest THC content at roughly 90%, but most of the terpenes have been removed so there is little flavor. Shatter is rigid and tends to shatter, hence the name.

  • Budder

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Budder is second most potent concentrate containing an average of 70% THC. More terpenes are found in budder so the flavor is more distinct.

  • BHO

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Butane Hash Oil receives its name from how it's made. Weed is condensed in a container which inhibits plant material from escaping but allows butane to flow through. This is also known as honey oil.

  • Hashish

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    'Hash' for short, this is the least concentrated form of condensed pot, but it is the oldest. Hash was originally manufactured for easier preservation and transportation from the Middle East.

  • Dab

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A small portion of hash, budder, BHO or shatter that will be smoked with paraphernalia (most of the time).

  • Vape Pen

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A portable device that is used to smoke dabs discretely, similar to an E-Cigarette.

  • Kief

    This is made up of trichomes that break off when handling or grinding bud. Smoking kief will get you insanely baked.

  • Mid

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Medium grade weed.

  • Resin

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

  • Tincture

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    An alcohol extraction of the whole cannabis plant containing all 85 cannabinoids, providing medical benefits with little THC. The best way to consume is placing a few droplets under your tongue.

  • Clones
