Why "Marihuana" Isn't a Spelling Mistake: A Brief History

Welcome to
First, let's address a common question we receive:
"Is 'marihuana' a spelling mistake?"

The answer is a resounding no, and here's why:

The term "Marihuana" (also commonly spelled "Marijuana") has a deep and complex history. It refers to the cannabis plant and, more specifically, to the drug preparations made from its dried flowers, seeds, stems, and leaves. These preparations contain various psychoactive substances, the most notable being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

At, we stand by our motto,

'Sowing Respect, Cultivating Progress'

is more than just a tagline; it's a philosophy that infuses every aspect of our operation. 'Sowing Respect' signifies our deep reverence for the rich history and diverse culture surrounding the cannabis plant, known to many as 'marihuana.' We believe in acknowledging the past, from ancient medicinal applications to the social and political challenges communities face associated with its growth and use.

'Cultivating Progress' is our commitment to the future.

We're dedicated to advancing the science of cannabis cultivation, improving our sustainable growing practices, and contributing to positive social change.
As we honor the plant's complex past, we're equally focused on its potent potential for healing, innovation, and community-building.

Join us as we grow — with respect for our roots and unwavering commitment to progress.

Origins of the Term:

The word "marihuana" itself is believed to have Spanish origins, though its precise etymological roots are somewhat unclear. Some theories suggest it may have indigenous roots or could be derived from "Maria y Juana" (Mary and Jane in Spanish), but these are less substantiated. The term was used in Mexican Spanish to describe the cannabis plant, particularly versions of lower quality consumed by marginalized communities.

Introduction to the United States:

"Marihuana" entered the American lexicon mainly in the early 20th century, with the influx of immigrants during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1911. These immigrants brought the recreational use of cannabis with them, along with the term "marihuana."

Criminalization Era:

Throughout the early-to-mid 20th century, "marihuana" became entwined with narratives of crime, deviance, and immigrant populations. Sensational media reporting and political campaigns of the time led to the criminalization of the plant with the U.S. government's 1937 Marihuana Tax Act. This criminalization was not unique to the United States; it reflected a global trend bolstered by international agreements.

Modern Shifts:

In more recent decades, there has been a significant shift towards decriminalization and legalization in various regions, thanks to the recognized medical benefits, evolving cultural attitudes, and considerations of social justice. However, the term "marihuana" still carries the historical weight of its past, prompting some in the legal or medical industries to prefer "cannabis" for its less stigmatized connotation.

Why We Use "Marihuana":

At, we've chosen to use the "Marihuana" spelling in our domain name to honor the historical context and complexities of the cannabis plant's journey. It's a term that reflects deep historical, cultural, and political narratives. By embracing this term, we acknowledge its past, understand its present, and look forward to a future where understanding outweighs stigma.
