We found this list of stoner terms online and thought we’d share them. Some of the terms are more frequently used in America however most (if not all) have made their way into the international stoner vocabulary. We also dug up a classic clip of Ali G listing other stoner terms:
April 20th (4/20) – International hemp Day, everyone blazes on this day. Everyone blazes at 4:20 every day too.
Blaze – To get high!
Blunt – Either a hollowed out cigar filled with hemp or (more commonly) a “marijuana cigarette” rolled with a blunt wrap (tobacco paper or emptied cigar).
Bowl – Can refer either to the part of a piece that holds cannabis, or to the pipe itself.
Bogart – The act of holding on to a joint/piece/blunt for too long, or one who does such an act: “Don’t bogart that joint my friend, pass it over to me”.
Boo – A street name for marijuana, listed only in anti-drug literature. No one has ever heard or used it. If you are ever arrested for possession, you should use this term, saving the taxpayers the expense of correcting and reprinting anti-pot pamphlets.
Kick-Hole / Carb – The hole on the side of a piece used to regulate air flow. Hold it closed with your thumb while inhaling to draw smoke into the chamber, then release to let air in and force the smoke into your lungs. Also called a “rush hole”.
Cherry – The red burning coal of hemp in a joint or bowl.
Chillum – A pipe with the bowl in line with the stem.
Ganja – Just 1 of many synonyms for cannabis, others include Dope, Marijuana, Grass, Draw, Puff, Blow, Weed, Gear, Ganja, Herb, Wacky Baccy, Skunk, Pot, Bob Hope and Bob – see the Ali G video below for many more 🙂
