A Comprehensive List of Slang Terms for Cannabis

What do you call your bud? Is it strictly "cannabis" for you or do you use slang terms like reefer, dope, or perhaps you enjoy more colourful terms like Electric Lettuce? Recently, the Canadian Government published a list of of popular and common slang terms for cannabis as part of their About Cannabis webpage and while we appreciate any effort that seeks to improve how people perceive and ultimately talk about cannabis we felt that the list was missing a few options.

Whatever your flavour, perhaps you'll spot a new name to work into your repertoire with this list of slang names that we worked tirelessly to source from all corners of the internet. 

You are welcome.
