Funniest Weed Strains of All Time

Since cannabis entered the mainstream, many breeders started naming their strains. Over the years, those names became part of the strain’s identity. 

Trainwreck, Gorilla Glue, and Girl Scout Cookies are just some examples of weed strain names; funny, right? But why do people always call their weed by funny strain names? We’ll answer that question and rank some of our favorite funny weed strain names.

Why do some strains have funny names?

The main reason breeders started cooking up playful and funny weed strain names is simple: it’s a marketing tactic. That’s not to say it’s wrong to have a good and simple name for a strain. But having a whimsical and wacky name does make a difference. When you’re given the choice of trying out a new cultivar you don’t know, would you pick the one with a simple name? Or the one that made you chuckle?

Breeders want to leave a lasting impression on the consumers, so we have strains like Cat Piss. This wasn’t always the case. Back then, different strains didn’t have the branding they do now. It was all the same, and it showed. They were simply packaged into bricks. Nowadays, cannabis buds are stored in resealable bags or tin containers that also display their strain names.

How does a cannabis strain get its name?

The naming convention for cannabis didn’t start off as a marketing tactic. Most strains were named for what they were. Their aroma, flavor, and effects were what composed a strain’s name. But, some strains were named after iconic people and honored them somehow. A great example would be Jack Herer. Like the person it was named after, this strain is known for its energizing effects.

Another strain with a funny, original name is Fryday Kush. This strain was announced by Ice Cube, an iconic character in the 1995 movie ‘Friday.’ Likely, this is where the rapper got the name for his line of marijuana. Before we get into the list, here are some strains that didn’t make the list; Candy Kush, LSD, and Purple Haze. These three strains and Fryday Kush are just some of the funny weed strain names waiting to be noticed.

6 of the funniest cannabis strain names (you can grow)

Green crack strain

Green Crack

Despite what its name lets on, Green Crack is 100% marijuana. Unfortunately, that’s the only clear thing about this particular cannabis strain. Its name is something that the community often debates. The issue is: Green Crack is also called Green Cush, and many people argue about which name came first. Some say it was originally Green Crack but was changed to Cush to make it more marketable. Others say it was Cush, but it was nicknamed Green Crack by Snoop Dogg.

Girl scout cookies strain

Girl Scout Cookies

This indica-dominant strain got its name because of its flavor. While it’s not exactly sweet, it has an earthy undertone and a minty chocolate finish. The taste of its smoke reminds many of thin mints, a popular variety of Girl Scout cookies. But this is not to say that the only thing GSC has going for it is its flavor.

Don’t let its name fool you; this strain packs a punch. It combines Durban Poison with OG Kush, two very potent cannabis strains. It will hit you with a strong sense of euphoria that’s followed up by an equally strong body high. We took the strain even further with our Girl Scout Cookies Extreme. It is a much easier strain to grow and carries the same potent effects and delectable flavor.

Trainwreck strain
Trainwreck strain


The name of this strain fits its effects. It’s like a roller coaster of euphoria and relaxation that you rarely experience in life. And for those uninitiated, the experience will hardly be very gentle. As for how this particular weed strain got its name, it’s not pleasant either. Purportedly, the strain was grown on a hill the same summer a train crashed in the Humboldt region. But others claim that Trainwreck got its name because of how it slams your head with an energizing buzz.

Gorilla Glue, or GG4, got its name from its extreme stickiness. This hybrid strain produces highly resinous and potent buds. It has a strong sedative quality that will leave you feeling deeply relaxed.
