How good are your skills at making a weed salad? The mixing of two or more strains of weed in your bowl qualifies you as a weed salad mixer. Perhaps you, like many others, never realized the skills that you possess.

2009 was when a mention of weed salad ended up in the Urban dictionary. There are many reported names for the term weed salad, some of those include:

  • Mendo blendo
  • House party
  • Spring mix
  • The blendo

Many weed salads have been born from desperation. The combining of the shake that you have found in the three tiny bags that were hidden in the back of the drawer is enough to supply the ingredients for your marijuana flower weed salad.

Cannabis Pharmacy’s author Michal Backes believes that this means of desperation was the birthing of the term weed salad. MB has a Californian brand, Perfect, and he is recognized as the world marijuana blending maker through his work.

Enjoying the contents of a bowl that has many Sativa strains mixed with other types of weed from the end of unknown almost empty backs of weed can result in some of the best marijuana flower you have had the privilege of enjoying. However, the chances of you being able to enjoy the same weed salad later are impossible. The same weed salad can be the worst crap you have tried, or it can be the masterpiece you attempt to enjoy again but never can reproduce.

The virgin weed salad

When Backes remembers back to 1974 to 1975, his thoughts run to the first weed salad that he ever made. He had found some Thai Stick that delivered a body-buzzing chocolate experience, and he mixed it with Kona Gold which delivered a euphoric piney effect. The mixing of the two strains produced a symphony compared to a solo performance, and Backes enjoyed the combination.

Not an edible

Wees salad is not an edible form of consuming marijuana. Yes, weed is edible and can be juiced, but this does not make a weed salad. Weed salads are also not a combination of tobacco and herb. The only ingredient in this weed salad is weed.

So, are you ready to grab that sharp grinder, or perhaps you prefer sharp scissors? Never smash your herb, and be sure that whatever tool you are using to tackle the job is sharp. Your herb, of course, has been stored in a sealed container stored away from sunlight to preserve those aromatic terps.

Never leave your salad weed in your bowl. It should be smoked right away to enjoy the benefits of fresh terps.



Weed generally falls into broad categories of flavour, and some of those include:

  • Earthy and incense smelling strains are often from fruity terpene strains

  • Gassy strains are often fuel-smelling

  • Savoury and Sweet strains

There is no perfect combination. As long as each bowl is produced from strains that you like and the mixing of the two or more types, your weed salad will be likely to provide an enjoyable experience.

Often it is beneficial to pair similar aromas like fuel with fuel. The combination produces a super pungent experience. Combining Sour Diesel with OG Kush in your bowl presents a weed salad recreation of Headband.

Pairing fruity strains together like Tangie and Super Lemon Haze with Papaya is the formula for a tropical mind and body journey.

There is no end to the ingredients that you can mix together to deliver a weed salad experience like no other. Sadly, when it goes well, it could be a unique once-in-a-lifetime experience that cannot be duplicated. However, there is nothing to worry about, experiences are abundant, and you are in control .

The downside

There is perhaps, for some, a downside to the amazing weed salad… conformity is lacking, and that’s why duplication is not a word that is associated with weed salad.
