Have strain names become too silly?

Have strain names become too silly?

The r/CannabisThailand community engaged in a poll questioning the creativity of strain names. With 105 votes cast, the results were:

  • 24 votes for loving the imaginative strain names.
  • 49 votes for preferring names that reflect the strain’s genetics.
  • 32 votes for being indifferent to the naming conventions.

In the whimsical world of weed, strain names can be as colorful as the strains themselves. The r/CannabisThailand poll reveals a split in the community’s taste for nomenclature. Nearly half of the voters pine for the days when names like ‘OG Kush’ whispered hints of their lineage, rather than the marketing pizzazz of ‘Disco Glitter’. Yet, a merry few are tickled by the creativity, perhaps imagining puffing on ‘Baby Yoda’ while watching stars wars. And then there’s the indifferent bunch, who likely subscribe to the philosophy that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet—or in this case, as dank.

When we compare these results to the broader conversation in the cannabis community, it’s clear that the debate over strain names is as varied as the strains themselves. While I don’t have a direct poll link to share, forums like Reddit and cannabis culture sites often feature discussions about whether strain names have gone too far or if they’re just part of the fun. After all, isn’t it a bit more exciting to say you’ve had a close encounter with ‘Alien Abduction’ rather than ‘Strain #447’?

The r/CannabisThailand poll results provide a snapshot of opinions on the trend of inventive cannabis strain names. Comparing these results with those from regions with more mature cannabis markets can offer insights into how branding, marketing, and consumer preferences evolve in the burgeoning world of cannabis culture.
