6 Funny Weed Strain Names
1. Girl Scout Cookies
Girl Scout Cookies is a great name for a cannabis strain as many girl scout troops have sold cookies outside of dispensaries. GSC is an Indica-heavy hybrid of OG Kush and Durban Poison, although its mysterious origins create a bit of controversy.
Girl Scout Cookies originated in San Francisco in the early 2010s.
Girl Scout Cookies has won the coveted Cannabis Cup and can act as a perfect plant-based nightcap.
The sweet flavor is perfect for a night of relaxation and many report elevated levels of happiness. It is no wonder that a top weed strain named after Girl Scout Cookies makes its consumers smile!
What You Should Know:

- Anxiety is not a commonly reported side effect even when too much is consumed.
- Some reviewers note that great music along with this strain is the perfect combination.
2. Cat Piss Strain
Cat Piss sounds more like a street drug that kids are starting to do in a late-night new investigative series.
Cat Piss is a Sativa that comes from the lineage of the legendary Super Silver Haze. The strain has earned its name due to its smell which is unpleasant for some to say the least.
The low THC levels make it a great Sativa to start the day or when there are mundane chores to do.
The medicinal uses for this are anxiety and stress as with a lower THC content, overconsumption becomes more difficult. This strain has seemingly been bred with so many others that origins start to become quite unclear.
What You Should Know:
- Some reviewers were not huge fans of the strain while others loved it. The growing process needs to be kept in mind as not all growers are created equal.
- Different strains have been used to derive a similar product so asking about genetics is important.

3. Bob Saget/Bob Saget OG/The Bob Weed Strain
Bob Saget OG plays tribute to the leading man in Full House which was a favorite of cannabis consumers in the 1990s. Saget also has a comedy routine that is only for mature audiences, to say the least.
Bob Saget OG is a strain of many names that comes from Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Afghani genetics. The fact that rappers frequently mention Saget in their songs might have added a bit to the popularity of this strain.
Bob Saget OG is for the daily smoker as it is easy to avoid tolerance buildup as this has high THC levels.
There are a Sativa and Indica combination of effects with the beginning feeling like you smoked a Sativa. As time goes on, you will feel the effects of the Indica with relaxation and potential sleepiness.
What You Should Know:
- Can be perfect for those working in creative roles.
- The genetics of this strain are immensely well-planned so make sure you are careful with this strong strain.
4. Alaskan Thunderf**k
Alaskan Thunderfu** is the name of a strain instead of a wild phrase someone might utter to get a laugh and possibly the funniest American weed strain name.
The lineage of ATF is complicated as it is a combination of Russian Ruderalis and an anonymous Californian strain. The impacts can be a sharp mind along with a relaxed body with this Sativa-dominant strain.
What You Should Know:
- This can be a sneaky strain so make sure you are careful during consumption. The full impact of a hit might not be felt for a few minutes, unlike some other strains.
- Those that suffer from anxiety after consuming cannabis need to avoid this strain. ATF is notorious for making the minds of consumers race to potentially uncomfortable locations.
5. Ninja Turtle Strain
Anyone that watched the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles understands why it is an iconic show in the stoner community. The turtles routinely ate gratuitous amounts of pizza consumed while constantly complaining about the munchies.
Ninja Turtle is a hybrid of White Russian and Martian Green Mean (which could be included on this list).
Much like the Ninja Turtles, this strain is said to use karate to chop away your bad moods or anxiety. Master Splinter would be proud of managing your mood with something that comes from the earth.
