From technical talk to street slang, the cannabis world is full of terms it helps to understand. Here are a few definitions to help you navigate your next foray into the fine art of weed.


BHO (a.k.a. Butane Hash Oil)

A cannabis extract that’s created by using butane as a solvent during the extraction process. Commonly referred to as BHO, butane hash oil comes in a variety of consistencies and textures depending on equipment and techniques used in the extraction process.


A traditional blunt is a hollowed-out cigar filled with ground cannabis. Since cigars tend to be larger than joint rolling papers, they are able to hold more cannabis and have a small amount of nicotine. Modern blunt wraps are made from Palm, Mint, and even Hemp and do not contain nicotine.


The proportion of a drug or other substance which enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so is able to have an active effect.


A glass, ceramic, or plastic device used to smoke cannabis flower. Bongs use water to filter out any undesirable plant matter—allowing only smoke to reach the user’s lungs.



A highly potent form of cannabis extract, typically containing elevated levels of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. Concentrates are produced through extraction methods that isolate and concentrate the active compounds found in cannabis flower.



A specialized smoking device used for consuming cannabis concentrates. A dab rig consists of a water pipe or bong-like apparatus equipped with a heating element, often called a nail, designed to vaporize concentrates for inhalation.



The process of separating cannabinoids and other desirable compounds from cannabis plant material using solvents or mechanical methods. Common extraction solvents include butane, propane, ethanol, and CO2.



Natural compounds found in cannabis and other plants responsible for their aroma, flavor, and potential therapeutic effects. Flavonoids contribute to the entourage effect when consumed alongside cannabinoids and terpenes.



A device used to break down cannabis flower into smaller, more manageable pieces for smoking or vaporization. Grinders typically consist of two interlocking pieces with sharp teeth that shred the cannabis when twisted.



A concentrated cannabis product made by compressing trichomes, the resinous glands found on cannabis flower, into a solid form. Hash can vary in texture, color, and potency depending on the extraction method and plant material used.



One of the three primary classifications of cannabis, along with sativa and hybrid. Indica strains are known for their sedative effects, relaxing body high, and potential therapeutic benefits for insomnia, pain relief, and muscle relaxation.



A common method of consuming cannabis, consisting of rolling ground cannabis flower into a paper cone or cylindrical shape. Joints are typically smoked like cigarettes or cigars and can be shared among multiple users.








The strength or concentration of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, in a cannabis product. Potency is typically expressed as a percentage and indicates the relative intensity of the psychoactive and therapeutic effects of the product.



A type of dabbing accessory used in conjunction with a dab rig for vaporizing cannabis concentrates. Quartz bangers are heat-resistant and allow for efficient heating and vaporization of concentrates, resulting in smoother and more flavorful hits.



A sticky, viscous substance produced by cannabis plants that contains cannabinoids, terpenes, and other bioactive compounds. Resin accumulates on the surface of cannabis flower and is responsible for its aroma, flavor, and potency.



Referring to cannabis concentrates that are produced without the use of solvents such as butane or ethanol. Solventless extraction methods, such as ice water hash or rosin pressing, preserve the natural terpenes and cannabinoids of the cannabis plant.



Aromatic compounds found in cannabis and other plants that contribute to their unique aroma, flavor, and potential therapeutic effects. Terpenes interact synergistically with cannabinoids to produce the entourage effect, enhancing the overall cannabis experience.




A portable device used for vaporizing cannabis concentrates or oils for inhalation. Vape pens typically consist of a battery, heating element, and cartridge containing concentrated cannabis oil, offering a discreet and convenient method of consumption.
