Cannabis is one of those things that invites a lot of jokes, even dating back to its early days, where the word “hashish” means “grass” in Arabic. Here we explore the world of weed-related puns and see what’s clever, what’s common, and what’s funny.

The following is an article produced by a contributing author. Growers Network does not endorse nor evaluate the claims of our contributors, nor do they influence our editorial process. We thank our contributors for their time and effort so we can continue our exclusive Growers Spotlight service.

Cannabis Puns

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.

The Good

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:

  • Bud Naked
  • High Times
  • Buy the Ounce
  • Herb N' Sprawl
  • Pharm to Table
  • Stoned Age
  • Starbuds
  • Give and Toke
  • Eugreen, Oregon
  • Royal Highness
  • Infusiasm
  • Canndy
  • To Be Blunt
  • Sinsemedia
  • Meowy Jane

  • The Bad

    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.

  • Releaf
  • “The Healing Center” (THC)
  • You can’t spell healthcare without “THC”
  • Mary Jane
  • Mariajuana
  • Lazy Daze
  • High Stakes
  • High Noon
  • Zkittlez - Taste the Ztrainz bro
  • BHOgart
  • Terp. N. Tine.
  • Sons of Agronomy
  • Breaking the Grass Ceiling
  • Blunted Society
  • Headmaster
  • DUber
  • Agency for Higher
  • “Cult of Asian”

  • The Funny

    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.

  • Jack Pot
  • Breaking Bud
  • Knights Hemplar
  • Best Buds
  • Fweedom
  • Hippocratic Growth
  • Citi Dank
  • Good Titrations
  • Dank Dynasty
  • Flower to the People
  • SupHerbs
  • The Legion of Bloom
  • The Reefinery
  • Budding Industry
  • Growth Industry
  • Profits Higher Than Ever
  • Deep Roots
  • Delving Into The Weeds
  • Joint Effort
  • High Heals
  • Danksgiving
  • Mary had a little gram, her Trich’s were white as snow
  • "Happy St. Fatty's Day -- I won't be wearing green, but I will be smoking it."

  • 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
    Sativa Buds Stoned Weed Hash Farming THC Joint
    Indica Flower High Mary Jane Dab Infusion Terpenes Blunt
    Cannabis Roots Healing Herb Titrations Extraction CBD Vape
    Hemp Stems   Reefer Wax Agronomy Cannabinoids Edible
      Leaves   Pot Shatter Growth   Gram
      Trichomes   Dank Resin/Rosin Flowering   Ounce

    In Conclusion

    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!
