Calling it Kush~Terminology
    #553122 - 05/05/11 12:47 AM (5 years, 6 months ago)

Hi everyone! I had a bugging question that's been in my head and no one I know can answer it. Some of you might know about the fake smoke called spice (labeled as incense). It has multiple names and brands, but it's all the same thing mainly. But the thing I noticed after it's ban and eventually return without the chemical on it was that it was called Kush. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't kush another term for 'real' smoke? Wouldn't it be considered false advertisement on their part? Imput please, I need help with this terminology!

It's just a name :shrug:
The name kush comes from the Hindu Kush mountains, where indica's originated.

Exactly...But people have taken the word "Kush" and slapped it on everything. Just like when people refer to any bud as "Dro", even if it wasn't grown hydroponically.



For some reason it bugs me....

I know a few people who name good bud kush, but technically the term kush refers to an indica strain of marijuana that was cultivated by mother nature scattered along the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan.

The brand of spice you're talking is just that: a brand name, it's named for attraction. Herbal Incense or "spice" should not be confused with marijuana.

The term "dro" bugs the shit out of me just in itself. I i was trying to explain to a girl there there was two main types of cannabis (indica; sativa) but before i could say what they were she interrupted with:
"oh yeah i know, Schwag and Dro"
:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

agreed ^

people get more upset when you challenge their drug knowledge then politics or religion.

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

I seriously agree. A friend of mine just started smoking, and is suddenly using terminology like its nothing, but sounding really ridiculous at the same time to the point of being cringeworthy. When she said cashed about five times when she was trying to get a hit out of a waterfall bong that had loooong been used up, I just kinda :facepalm:

People gotta get schooled on their genetics sometimes, ya know?  If you know the difference then don't hesitate to call them out and try to educate them (if possible).

Ignorance shouldn't be substituted for lack of greater knowledge on their part.

But ehh, I need to sleep.
