Health Canada Cannabis Lingo Confusion

When it comes to language there are many variables that come into play when it comes to what a specific word means. While a word may mean one thing here in the United States it could have an entirely different meaning somewhere else. Sometimes a word can even have a different meaning just depending on which state you’re in. This is also true when it comes to the lingo surrounding cannabis, cannabis products, and the cannabis culture.

The simplest thing such as a border can drastically change the meaning of words. Just recently in preparation for the upcoming adult-use legalization of cannabis in the country Health Canada launched a social media campaign aimed at educating the public including youth and parents about cannabis, there was some lingo referenced that has stoners throughout the community and culture scratching their head with confusion.

Health Canada tweeted a photo during this recent campaign that included a chalkboard with some terms that they suggested may not mean what you think. In other words, they were hinting that these were cannabis slang terms that people should familiarize themselves with.

Some of the words included in the list many people are familiar with such as purps (“Purple” cannabis strains), and keef (although incorrectly spelled). Other terms, however, such as “boom” and “errl” have many cannabis connoisseurs, patients, and even stoners alike shaking their head in confusion.
