If you are a cannabis smoker, chances are, you have heard a dozen or more strange strain names. You have probably been wondering how these strains got their names and who created them. The majority of strains with weird or unique names are hybrids of other strains. Some of these hybrids were named after where they were originally created, while other names seem to be a combination of the two or more strains from which they were made.

Below is a compilation of some of the best strange strain names and their origins. Enjoy!
