Have you passed the beginner test? Time to move onto the second lesson of Rosetta Stoner and practice using these terms.

  • 420

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Starting as a code for smoking weed by some Cali teens, 420 is a good time to smoke during the day (4:20 pm…or am if your committed) and, once a year on April 20th, is a day to celebrate Mary Jane.

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    THC is what gets you high. It is the primary psychoactive in marijuana. In fact, it's those little crystals seen on buds that contain it. Usually, the higher the THC content, the better.

  • Filter

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    An item (usually of paper or cardboard) rolled into the end of a joint or blunt to open the airway and provide handling support.

  • Roach

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The very last bit of a joint or blunt.

  • Spliff

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A joint mixed with tobacco.

  • Choke

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The small opening on some pipes and bongs that improves airflow. To use it properly, cover the choke with a finger while inhaling, then release and continue inhaling.

  • Bubbler

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A cross between a pipe and a bong, but without a removable bowl. Put a small amount of water in and listen to the soothing sound as you inhale.

  • Vaporizer

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A device that cooks weed instead of burning it where you inhale a concentrated vapour. Vaporizers produce the highest concentration of THC.

  • Stems and Sticks

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The branches that buds are attached too. It's not recommended to smoke these, but if your really desperate, go for it.

  • Seeds

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Seeds of the marijuana plant are sometimes found lost in the buds. If your joint pops and sparks while smoking, it was probably a seed.

  • Hemp

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The common term for the non-smokeable products of the cannabis plant including seeds, fibre (stems and branches) and oil.

  • Bud

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The smokeable portion of a marijuana plant. Similar to the bud of a flower, though we don't recommend trying to smoke a flower.

  • Nug

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Buds that have been broken off the main stems. Everybody likes big nugs.

  • Sativa

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    One of two primary types of weed. It provides more of an energetic head high and recommended for day-time use. Sativa provokes the giggles.

  • Indica

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The other primary marijuana type. Considered the evening strain because it's known to give more of a relaxing body high.

  • Kush

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    A subset of indica with ancestry from the Middle East, kush was originally grown on the Hindu Kush mountain ranges. It's associated with consistent quality and both head and body highs.

  • Purp

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Refers to purple kush, a high quality strain of kush which often contains some purple leaves or bud. It is not guaranteed, though, and often won't have any purple coloring.

  • Shake

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    The leaf, seeds, sticks and stems that sit at the bottom of a bag of weed. This stuff is extremely cheap (for obvious reasons) but is still smokable.

  • Edibles

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Food cooked with marijuana, usually cannabutter, for a tasty way to get high. Use shake to cook with so you don't waste the good stuff! Check out our [recipes](http://www.thestonerscookbook.com/snacks/) for some ideas on what to cook and how.

  • Cannabutter

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Weed butter. Learn how to make the best butter with [our special recipe](http://www.thestonerscookbook.com/how_to_make_cannabutter.php) and put it on everything!
