    This is an interesting look at something I've been thinking about ever since I realized that somewhere out there are people whose medicine is called Mindfuck or Trainwreck or Durban Poison.

    I hate the name Green Crack, great bud, horrible name!!

    I call it Green Cush instead.

    I think "Bette Davis Eyes" would be a good name for a strain.

    Hell, "Every Day Amnesiac" might be a good name too! :dog:

    I'd be vaping that shit every damn day...

    I just picked up a strain today called, "Cinderella 99." Interesting name to be sure! I haven't tried it yet, but I'm still looking for the glass slipper. :nod:

    ***Edit-Holy crap, I found the glass slipper!! :whoa:

    I believe Pinchers Creek is the real name, but I guess it doesn't have the same appeal to some people.

    I have some cannabis that I have that's called Durban Poison. I almost didn't buy it. It was highly recommended. It's a Sativa. It's not any better than some of the other I've used. It is good quality, so are plenty of the others.

    Ive been suspicious about some of the different names since now I have a mmj cert. I can go to a dispensaries now. I was thinking they could put any name on something and I wouldnt know the difference. I agree I didn't want to buy Green Crack either because of the name. Maybe other folks are attracted to the name.

    Names really do sell a product. When you go into a dispensary, all you've got to go on is name, smell and looks. Or an herbs reputation. I have had some really nice folks at the different dispensaries that have been honest and helpful.

    I liked the above article very much.

    Thanks, I did some searching and found:
    There are two strains of Green Crack: one that is almost pure Sativa and one that is 75% Indica.
    How confusing is that?
    I love the sativa version

    how about Purple Dog Shit, or just Shit, I'm not kidding, one of them is a popular strain name in Oregon.
