Bud

The flower of the mature pot plant. The buds are the part of the plant that is ground up and smoked, as it contains the highest concentration of cannabinoids in the plant, including THC and CBD.

CBD

Cannabidiol, known as CBD, is one of dozens of molecules called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD has become known for its medical benefits. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects.

Crunk

A cross between chronic and drunk, it means to be high and drunk at the same time.

Dab

A dab is a small amount of concentrate, like hash oil or shatter. Consuming it is called “dabbing,” which is done with a heat and a rig to make vapor, which is inhaled.

Kief

Dust that falls from bud.

Larf

Possibly one of the most fun words to say out loud, larf is small, immature buds that haven’t reached their full potential. Often, larfy buds are found on the bottom of the plant where there wasn’t enough light.

Shatter

It looks like caramel or toffee. Shatter is a concentrated cannabis product.

Terpenes

Terpenes are aromatic metabolites found in the oils of all plants. In cannabis, research has shown that they help give different strains their smell, taste and effect.

THC

The abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabinol, a crystalline compound that is the main active ingredient of cannabis and responsible for the psychoactive effects.

Trichomes

These are the glands, or hairs, on a cannabis plant that carry the majority of the THC and CBD in the plant.
