One of the amazing things about cannabis is that it comes in all different shapes, colors, flavors, and smells, which ensures that there is something that everyone will like. Though names of weed strains have only recently become an interest for long time consumers, who not long ago were buying black market products that didn’t come with a name or a label, as we reveal more of the benefits that come with knowing this powerful information, it’s quickly becoming the main selling point for dispensaries.

Is there any importance to a strain’s name?

If you’re here, then you might just be wondering if there is any real valuable information in a strain’s name, and the truth is yes, and no. Now, if that sounds a tad confusing, then we’d like to officially welcome you to the incredible world of weed strains, where nothing is quite as it seems. Some weed strains include a descriptive word that divulges a specific feature that the cultivator was hoping to highlight, but most strain names are chosen to convey a message or memory that is dear to their creator.

Examples of this are relatively easy to spot if you know what you’re looking for, like Blue Dream, which induces relaxing effects that will help you drift off to sleep, or Green Crack, which is an energizing Sativa. Then there are names that include words like Skunk or Strawberry, and those elude to the aromatic nature of the species. Others, such as Haze imply a specific genetic background and origin and weed strains like Jack Herer and Charlotte’s Web commemorate incredibly important people from the cannabis movement.

So yes, there is always some level of information that can be found within a strain name, but much of it is only understood by the people who had a hand in creating them, and the rest, takes a bit of experience and knowledge to decipher completely.
