A Guide to Weed Slang in Spanish: 10 Helpful Terms to Know

Mastering Spanish-language slang is a complicated affair, given the sheer number of national and intra-country variations that exist. Consider the multitudinous uses for “pedo”: in some countries, it’s just a fart; in others it can also mean being drunk (“estoy bien pedo”), a difficult problem (“me metí en un pedo complicado”), or even a good vibe (que buen pedo esa música.”)

Naturally, terms for weed are no different. You can get by using the generic term hierba/yerba anywhere, but when it comes to all the corollary stuff – words for stoned, joints, dealers, rolling papers, etc. – it’d be nice to have an Urban Dictionary-style resource to make sure you don’t sound like a n00b. (And even if you don’t smoke, it’d help you catch the more obscure weed references in song lyrics.)

But since a Spanish-language weed slang dictionary doesn’t exist yet – to our knowledge – we’ve decided to get the ball rolling with 10 helpful weed slang terms you might hear around Latin America.

Note: This is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you have other slang words you think the people need to know, add them in the comments below.

Weed Week is a cross-platform collaboration with our friends at Latino USA. All week long, we’ll be diving into the many ways cannabis culture and policy intersect with Latino communities – leading up to Latino USA’s marijuana-themed episode “Smoked Out,” airing on Friday.
