In the UK, cannabis is often referred to by quantity:

  • 1/16 (ounce): ‘teenth’ (sixteenth), Louis (the 16th)
  • 1/8: eighth, eighter, single, Henry(the VIII), cut, slice, Garden Gate
  • 1/4: quarter (ounce), quad, ‘Q’, bottle (of water), farmer’s daughter, mike vick
  • 1/2: half (ounce), ‘halfie’, ‘half-O’, ‘halfer’
  • 1: ounce, oz, onion Ozzy (Osbourne), ‘O’, Oscar, zone, zip, Fosters
  • 4 o’s: QP, quap, Cutie Pie
  • 9: bar (approx. 250g)
  • 36: key, kilo (approx. 1 kg)
  • 10^9: beenth (fictional term for a billion ounces)
  • £5s worth – ‘Dives’
  • £10s worth – ‘ten bag’,’tens’, ‘benners’, ‘ten bit’, ’10s poof’, ‘a draw’
  • tuppence worth

Realistically though, unless you’re safe with your dealer or you know the geezer who grows it, you’re gonna get mugged off. Probably end up paying £10 and getting a 0.8/0.7.

In the US, cannabis is often referred to by price:

  • Nickel bag, blunt (also referred to as a “nick”) — $5 worth
  • Dime bag (also referred to as a “dime”) — $10 worth
  • Dub – twenty bag, $20 worth
  • 30 sack – $30 worth
  • 50 piece (also referred to as an eighth or fatty eight) — You get 3 of that particular dealer’s twenty bags (“dubs”) for $50, $10 in savings. Sometimes just comes in one bag/plastic jar.
  • 25, or a quarter — It is $100 worth and works with the savings system by giving you $20 amount free with it.
  • Lid- $200 worth, It is usually the largest amount bought at a time. It is referred to as a lid because the height of the amount of marijuana in the bag is equal to the width of the lid of a bucket.

In the Northeastern U.S. it is common to speak of cannabis in terms of clothing store merchandise or food (e.g., a slice is 1/8 oz. (3.5 g))

  • Sock—1 gram
  • Shirt—1/8 ounce (3.5 g)
  • Pants—1/4 ounce (7 g)
  • Jacket—1 ounce (28 g) Buyer: “How much do you think a pair of pants would cost?” Dealer: “A pair of pants would cost $X.00.”

In Canada, similar terms to those in the UK are used, but grams are used in small quantities, and fractional ounces are actually weighed out in grams. For example, an “o” or ounce in most of Canada will be weighed as exactly 28 grams on a scale, which is an approximation. Common purchase units are the “half”, “quarter” and “eighth”, or “half quarter”, weighed out as 14, 7, and 3.5 grams respectively. Grams are used for lower quantities, and may be referred to as “grrs”.

In Australia, cannabis is usually sold in $25 bags (referred to as a “stick” or “wick” or a “twent”), $50 bags (referred to as a “fifty”), quarter “quart”, half ounces “half”, ounces and pounds, 1/8 can also be called a half-quarter. Dealers also occasionally deal $30 bags, common in Western Australia. On the sunshine coast most people sell in $10 bags or ‘tenners’ or $50 bags.

In India, cannabis (and especially hashish) is usually sold in tolas, one tola being 10 grams. Interestingly, a tola is also the standard unit of weight used by jewelers and dealers often use jewelers scales to measure their product

Popular Slang Searches

Slang for

As you’ve probably noticed, the slang synonyms for ” term ” are listed above. Note that due to the nature of the algorithm, some results returned by your query may only be concepts, ideas or words that are related to ” term ” (perhaps tenuously). This is simply due to the way the search algorithm works.

You might also have noticed that many of the synonyms or related slang words are racist/sexist/offensive/downright appalling – that’s mostly thanks to the lovely community over at Urban Dictionary (not affiliated with Urban Thesaurus). Urban Thesaurus crawls the web and collects millions of different slang terms, many of which come from UD and turn out to be really terrible and insensitive (this is the nature of urban slang, I suppose). Hopefully the related words and synonyms for ” term ” are a little tamer than average.

Urban Thesaurus

The Urban Thesaurus was created by indexing millions of different slang terms which are defined on sites like Urban Dictionary. These indexes are then used to find usage correlations between slang terms. The official Urban Dictionary API is used to show the hover-definitions. Note that this thesaurus is not in any way affiliated with Urban Dictionary.

Due to the way the algorithm works, the thesaurus gives you mostly related slang words, rather than exact synonyms. The higher the terms are in the list, the more likely that they’re relevant to the word or phrase that you searched for. The search algorithm handles phrases and strings of words quite well, so for example if you want words that are related to lol and rofl you can type in lol rofl and it should give you a pile of related slang terms. Or you might try boyfriend or girlfriend to get words that can mean either one of these (e.g. bae). Please also note that due to the nature of the internet (and especially UD), there will often be many terrible and offensive terms in the results.

There is still lots of work to be done to get this slang thesaurus to give consistently good results, but I think it’s at the stage where it could be useful to people, which is why I released it.

Special thanks to the contributors of the open-source code that was used in this project: @krisk, @HubSpot, and @mongodb.
