I just got some indica strain from my dispensary. It is called "Gorilla Cake". Who on earth devises these names? I have had "Codeine Dream", "F ck Tr mp" and "Jet Fuel". I thought "Girl Scout Cookies" was a goofy name when I first saw it. Seed Supreme has "CBD Spliff Berry". I like the name "Kosher Kush".

Too many names... frustrating when someone names a plant that isn't stabilized or at least from a repeatable cross, gets so confusing, obviously there end up being repeats of multiple vastly different genetic stock being given the same name....

I appreciate @umbra mostly calling his work by the actual cross description. Then a unique phenotype can get a "cut name" but I wouldn't call it a strain yet; it's a good pheno of a known but so far not stabilized lineage. Make sense?

One of my reliable plants is a Lemon Skunk and Kosher Kush offspring (that one was originally sold in SoCal as "jew gold" but the name was changed when a commercial breeder picked it up for genetic stock ***edit this is not quite right see umbra's info below***) and has the name Golden Lemons; the cross is repeatable as the breeder knows the parents - not just the parent strain, but the ACTUAL, INDIVIDUAL PARENT- and has the ability to do it again. Like, if you and your sibling married another pair of siblings, the cousins in the next generation aren't automatically identical. They're unique!

So the Golden Lemons INDIVIDUAL I have was assigned a cut name by someone who popped a lot of seeds as chose a nice plant to represent the cross, and called it Glitter Spray Cut.

Another one I have is called Honey Badger Cut of a probably 30 year old soma strain, this cutting has been passed down a long time

Couple days ago umbra n I were talking trash on my log and I guess one of the phenos of one of his crosses that popped up in my garden is now the Sex&Candy cut... It ain't a strain til it's predictably repeatable! But heck ya love me some goofy cut IDs!

Kosher Kush and Jew Gold are the same plant strain but different phenotypes according to NorCalHal
I recall seeing that name and thinking that there was no way in heIl I would say it aloud, except if the strain was invented by a Jewish breeder with a morbid sense of humor like mine. I would name a black strain (e.g. a Black Domina cross) Bête Noire, perhaps Black Shuck.

Where did NorCalHal disappear? :(

No NCH is busy making money and growing lots of pot. Probably close to 100 employees by now.

When I grow something I'm proud of I call it the mountain cut of whatever parent it most closely resembles, you know, like Mountain cookies or Mountain Glue or the like. Umbra does it right but then I have to decipher his abbreviations.
