It seems like one cannot do anything related to cannabis without at least hearing one or two puns or innuendos about it. Here at Growers Network, things are no different. During our traverses throughout the internet, we have come across a surprising number of puns (which we kept a record of!) and wanted to rank them by their quality. Stay tuned to the end for suggestions on how to make your own cannabis puns.
I call these the “good” puns because they’re clever and they don’t make you
grown groan. The pun and/or the name is memorable, and you just can’t help but smile when you read these. So, without further ado, here’s some of the more clever ones I’ve seen:
I describe these puns as bad, not because they’re not clever or not interesting in their own right, but because they either make you groan or don’t get any reaction at all due to how common or specific they are. Frequent flyers include derivations upon “Mary Jane” or marijuana.
These puns go beyond the simple “aha! That’s clever!” straight into laughing. Whoever came up with these may or may not have had THC in their system when they came up with them, but they were good with words.
Making Your Own
There’s a lot of potential jokes and puns to be made about cannabis. Most of these words fall into specific categories, so here’s a table of potential words you can use to make your own puns:
|Whole Plant||Plant Parts||Effects||Nicknames||Extracts||Processes||Chemicals||End Products|
I’m a writer, which must mean I have some kind of genetic predisposition towards finding puns
humerus humorous. That said, this list is by no means complete, and is also completely subjective. What did you think I got wrong? Did I miscategorize anything? Are there any puns you’d like to see on the list? Let us know in the comments, or become our buds by joining Growers Network!
