Cannibus? Marihuana? 10 Weird Weed Words and Their Definitions

July 28, 2021

by Ma Raim

From the wonders of the cannibus to the sacred cannibis... cannabis isn’t the most challenging word to spell. Yet many cannabis users get it wrong according to Google. Do you have any guesses as to why stoners might regularly spell cannabis wrong? We have a few ideas. We've decided to attach our chosen definitions to each of the top misspellings, so sound off in the comments if you think we're off base or can think of a better one!

Here are the top cannabis misspellings and their meanings:

1 Cannibus

(1) The van-like vehicle you drive to go pick your weed up in.

(2) A weed nugget that is shaped like a bus. “Hop in the cannibus, time to re-up.”

Fun fact: you don’t need a cannibus to pick up your weed thanks to online dispensaries.

2 Cannibis

A stork-like creature from Egypt who's baked all the time. “Ancient Cannibis has weighed you and found you wanting a dab.”

3 Canabis

(1) A quick hit of weed to get yourself motivated.

(2) a microdose of THC or CBD. These are usually consumed through vapes rather than smoking a joint because it’s quick and easy.

(3) Canabis is a shortened form of cannabis business, since hot shot business stoners have no time to complete lengthy words.

4 Canabise

The exhaled cannabis smoke that collects inside the joint circle – it creates the smoking atmosphere and fosters community. “That canabise really sets a mood, man. I’m cosy.”

5 Cannibas

(CIBA) The unorganized collection of cannabis smokers attempting to preserve the culture of cannabis. Typically they’re faithful cannabis smokers who are unconvinced to use newer-developed cannabis products. “Those cannibas keep giving me the side eye for vaping in the circle.”

Marijuana Misspellings

Marijuana is also often misspelled, but this can be forgiven a little easier because it is slightly more challenging to spell. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some fun definitions for these common marijuana misspellings.

1 Marajuana

(1) a stoned snake, or (2) a snake that stoners mistake for a dragon after smoking a bit too much weed. “Yo, you seeing that Marajuana or is it just me?”

2 Marihuana

Marijuana infused into beverages; including using tinctures or concentrates to make cannabis beverages at home. “That marihuana is kicking my ass right now.”

There are a number of products that are perfect for making cannabis-infused beverages. Add cannabis honey sticks to your favourite tea or make an at-home soda with Cannalean THC syrups in a number of flavours, like orange crush, berry blast, and many more.

In actuality the true use of marihuana goes back to its early use in the United States when the word was written down phonetically as spoken in Spanish. Marihuana was the accepted spelling and often used in anti-cannabis propaganda.

3 Marijuanna

(1) The name cannabis enthusiast parents give to their child (typically a daughter), more often spelled mary-juanna or simply Juanna.

(2) Cannabis smoked by turning a banana into a pipe. “Gimme a hit on that marijuanna.”

4 Marijuna

The cannabis break people take while pregnant. “She’s cranky because of the morning sickness and being on her marijuna.”

5 Marawana

The craving for smoking a joint. Example. “I really wana light up, right now”. Or walking past past your colleague in the hallway at 4.18: “Marawana?” “Marawana.”
