More about Nug
While there’s no definitive answer as to where the term “nug” derived from — or how it became ingrained in cannabis culture — the most likely explanation is as a shortened version of the term “nugget.” Originally, the word “nugget” was defined as a small lump of gold or other precious metal, but the term was eventually expanded to include small lumps or chunks of other substances, including cannabis.
In addition to describing the size and shape of cannabis flowers, nug can also refer to the quality of cannabis. Nug is a term cannabis consumers typically use to describe buds of high-quality cannabis. The opposite of nug is “schwag,” or low-quality cannabis.
Nugs make up the larger colas on the cannabis plant and have a relative density of trichomes far greater than leaves and stems or stalks. After the cola is harvested, the nugs are removed and manicured to clear away any leaves or stems that might be attached. Dried, cured nugs are sold for consumption.
Nug in pop culture
The term nug is used frequently in the cannabis industry and by cannabis consumers. As cannabis has become more mainstream, so have pop culture references to nugs.
Some places you might have heard the term nug in recent years include:
- The namesake song “Haiku d’Etat,” released in 19992004 by the group of the same name (“… after partaking from breaking nugs down out of fat bud stash … ”)
- The song “Blaze,” released in 2000 by The Pharcyde (“ … there’s no need for hatin,’ I got nugs you can hug … ”)
- The song “Boulevard Star,” released in 2000 by Delinquent Habits (“ … I’ll be remembered in the hearts of riders, West and East siders, known to take nug, pack bowl, and light …”)
- The song “Remember,” released in 2003 by Presence (“ … better yet one more hug, one more nug to smoke … ”)
- The song “Where’s The Weed At?,” released in 2006 by Kottonmouth Kings (“ … I got a nug on my desk and in my dresser drawer …”)
- The song “Higher Learning,” released in 2011 by Young Jeezy, with guests Snoop Dogg, Devin the Dude, and Mitchelle’l (“ … I smoke dro, good Reggie, smoke shake to nugs …”)
- The song “Get Hi,” released in 2016 By Danny Brown with guest B-Real (“ … you swear you could make dreams come true, sticky icky nugs, real furry buzz … ”)
A term adapted by the cannabis industry to refer to manicured buds from the cannabis plant. Nugs are the smokable part of the colas that are commonly referred to as flower.

So, Can You Really Smoke CBD Flower?
Even though smoking and vaping has been mostly associated with recreational cannabis, smoking hemp buds is a real phenomenon. In fact, hemp smoking is one of the hottest trends in the CBD community and could potentially shake-up the budding cannabis marketplace.
Smoking hemp will not induce a psychedelic “high” sensation. Premium hemp flowers must have 0.3 percent THC content or lower, so you won’t deal with any psychoactive effects.

Wow. Can’t go wrong with this oil. I’ve tried all the brands out there and I have to say this is by far the best.
Relaxing effect, smooth flavors, altogether an uplifting experience.
Great selection. Will purchase again.
I loved the Hawaiian Haze. It smells and taste great! Good for day and night time use! Definitely will be ordering more!
As I was looking for cannabis strains to fight inflammation, I came across several different names – Lifter, Elektra, ACDC, Suver Haze, Hawaiian Haze, Hazy Haze, Maisy’s Hazy (just kidding). What did I know? This sampler pack is perfect for trying out the different strains in order to see how each one affects you so you can then choose the one is most beneficial for you. I highly recommend purchasing this pack if you are new to the world of CBD.
The most relaxing experience. If you have stress & anxiety this is a great for both!!
Have already reordered.
Everything from here was awesome price product delivery time 👍🏼
The flavor and smell is awesome and they really help me with pain I get in my feet. I tend to have a lot of neck pain and this helps so much! It burns great! Definitely Recommend!
Good quantity, excellent service and timely delivery. Thank you CBD Nugs!
I’m trying to test out what strain works best for me and so far I’ve really feeling that Special Sauce. This hits like a warm water waves from the Gulf of Mexico over your body. Focused and relaxed mentally. Good session after a crazy work day on Mondays and a night of homework. If I choose to get buds and they are dry, I’ll add a piece of a carrot to fluff it up. Over all top fav so far, plus shipping and delivery were quick!
This is the best cbd i have ever tried by far
