Who buys into the weed strain name thing?
    #22083905 - 08/13/15 01:02 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

Just curious. Me personally, I've never understood why people eat that stuff up. I know if you grow it yourself it's a different story but most recreational pot smokers get their herb from some guy who gets it from some guys who gets it from some guy... yeah you know where I'm going with this. I just think it's kind of dumb when someone says something like, "I have some girl scout cookie nugs" or "I got some Jack Herer buds." Yeah, maybe it's some nice herb but how would someone even have a clue as to what strain they have. It seems like the same sort of thing when people say they have "fluff/needle point/lavender" LSD only people tend to believe the weed strain name shit more often. Am I missing something?

Probably the most retarded name I've ever heard someone call something is "Chocolate Haze". & here is a formula I created to use in order to make your ganja sound cool & "exotic":

__(insert name of fruit here)__ + Kush or Haze.

You obviously don't have friends in the medical cannabis industry.

I agree many people are full of shit and talk up BS, but the strains are real and there are real differences.

When you can get bud from growers and you know the strain for sure it's nice to know. Some highs are completely different; I don't like bud that make my eyes close..

Also, meeting growers is really easy... Round here at least.

Some strains are distinctive. But I have also pondered this. Who knows what type of ganj you're getting if you buy from some dealer. Who cares as long as it get you stoned  :bigblunt:

But yeah, if you live in a place where it's medical and there are dispensaries, chances are you're getting what you ask for.

Well I know that my dealer goes through a friend who has a medical card and he ends up getting the names from his friend sometimes, but not always. And he also has another dealer who drives to Cali and picks up a pretty hefty amount at once and buys it from the grower so the same goes for this as well Ill get a strain name sometimes but not all the time.

However I get what your saying everyone in my area likes to say "yo I got some fire sour diesel"
Apparently that's all anybody sells around here lol

My favorite that Ive had and knew the name of was purple urkle
Which is the bud in my sig

I don't put a lot of stock into it, but did follow it some. I'd always ask what my dealer had, mostly because I could buy a certain strain and then months later get the same experience (mostly the flavor, I was kind of a connoisseur with it). I'm definitely an indica person, and have smoked enough varieties regardless of name to tell them apart. So whether the name was actually what that strain was, was kind irrelevant. He only ever told me about strains he had that fit the indica profile, and I could always get the desired flavor characteristics by getting the "same strain".

Do I believe he had the strains locked down? Not really. In fact a lot of the strains I bought never had the flavor profile that strain review sites would almost unanimously agree on. All I know is that "blue cheese" always tasted like the first time I bought "blue cheese" (one of the very few to match the flavor profile listed everywhere) and northern lights always tasted like northern lights.

Did he make glaringly obvious mistakes? Yes. Green Crack to him was an indica. The very name suggests it's not, but if you look up strain info, you can find out it's not. His "green crack" was one of my favorites though. Nothing ever produced such a fucking couch lock on me.

Nope, I do not live in a location where marijuana is legal recreational-wise. But even then how can/why would someone take someone else's word for it unless you're physically going into a dispensary & picking it out yourself. In the LSD trade everyone tells people not to buy into the stuff people say that sell them it but with weed it seems more acceptable to listen to/believe the dealer.

@learning sponge, I think it's time for your next joint buddy. Woosah. Woosah.

There are many strains of weed. Each strain of weed can be given a name. Thereafter that name refers to that strain of weed.

So yeah I "buy in" to strains having names.

A buddy of mine who owned a dispensary freely admitted to changing the name of a strain that wasn't selling. Then all of a sudden with a new name the strain sold out and customers were coming back asking for the strain by name.

Another guy said 80% of the time most pot smokers don't even know what they're getting...the just like the name. It's more marketing than anything.

They all originated from different places, not sure what you are getting at.

There are different types of tomatoes, peppers and lettuce too. Different varieties of all cultivated plants exist and by necessity each has names that refer specifically to them.

different weedstrains have different levels of cannabnoids. although outside of REALLY knowing the taste/texture/smell/ qqualities of individual strains, names are meaningless.


any chump can call his mexican brick weed hydroponic white widow og kush from the moon.


ITS MOONIJUANA BRO SRS.

Are you familiar with the concept of plant hybridization?

Pretty deconstructive concept. Interesting. I'm sure there has to be some sort of reliance and professionalism, though, no?

Also another question concerning Purple Haze & other older strains of herb. Those strains in today's market, are they vastly different from what they were when they first started out, just the name & a few characteristic traits stuck through the years? I ask because how does one keep those genetics or whatever it is, alive & the same after all that time?

90% of the places they originated are simply different cities in the us over the last 20 years


so tell us, how does that compare with tomatoes which were selectively bred for thousands of years

a hybrid is a cross of two different biological 'breeds' in the same family,
like making that labradoodle, this strain naming bullshit started in the late
60s and early 70s, people started naming shit like colombian gold, maui wowie
which are the origins of the majority of the shit being produced today, how did
3-4 'different strains' become more than a thousand with retarded name  like
sour blueberry and romulan diesel... it's a bunch of pot snob twattery
