It’s the kind of faux-pas every cannabis newcomer makes at some point or another. You refer to one particular consumption method by entirely the wrong name and find yourself the laughing stock of those who know what they’re talking about.
As far as some are concerned, it really doesn’t matter how you hit it…just as long as you do. For others, the differences between consumption methods are as big of a deal as it gets. Even right down to those classic cannabis wrap-ups, they expect you to know the exact characteristics of your chosen handheld.
The question being – can you separate your joints from your spliffs and blunts?
If the answer is no, don’t feel too bad. Evidence would seem to suggest that most cannabis users pick one preferred word and stick with it, irrespective of how they’re smoking at the time. Some refer to every wrap as a spliff, others prefer the term joint and so on.
Still, if you really want to become a cannabis connoisseur, it’s worth familiarising yourself with this basic terminology. Plus, there’s much to be said for experimenting with different cannabis consumption methods, in order to find the one that suits you
