Nicknames are a fun, endearing way to bond with people. They are also used to identify activities, things, places, and much more. Hippie stoner names, in addition to being witty, are also a great way to make your regular smoke sessions infinitely more enjoyable. So whip out your trippiest pipe and officially knight your buds with one of these hippie names.
Every group has that one friend that’s always packing. You can count on them to have a stash come hell or high water. And they somehow also manage to slay the pant game, every single time.
Cottonmouth is a common side-effect of smoking up. Marijuana tends to dry out the mucous membranes, resulting in a dry and sticky feeling in the mouth. Usually, grabbing a drink of water can help with that dehydrated feeling. Beyond that though, is a great name for the stoner that has trouble getting their words out after a few hits.
Move over “Potterheads,” there’s a new stoner name in town.
A Potterhead is, naturally, anyone who is a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise. Among stoners, the term also became a common stoner name, since it isn’t too far off from the standard “Pothead.” And if you happen to be a bit of both, then there isn’t a more perfect name for you.
But after a while, you might find yourself getting bored of the same old names. A new era calls for fresh inspiration. Enter: Red-Eye Rudy, the stoner with a colorful past that starts spilling the beans every time that red-eye high hits.
Rather self-explanatory, this one goes out to the stoners who soar after a few little hits. For some, it really doesn’t take all that much to have a grand old time. And with stoners like these, if it’s a party you’re looking for, it’s a party you’ll get.
Hippie names come in many forms, but few bear as much spirit as “Flower Child.” The term refers to hippies who stood for love, beauty, and peace and were particularly partial to flowers.
The name might read as delicate and precious. But iconic imagery from the hippie movement shows these hippies placing flowers in the barrels of guns pointed directly at them. In other words, a Flower Child is a stunning, colorful badass who carries their weed in one hand and their fighting spirit in the other.
Lord and Lady Ganja
Hippie stoner names don’t have to be gendered, of course. But if your crew does happen to have a gentleman or woman that happens to carry a majestic cigarette holder with them and smokes blunts like they’re Victorian royalty, then do bestow upon them the appropriate title.
King Cannabis and Queen Kush
If said individual is somehow outclassed by another who happens to be actual literal royalty, then the even more appropriate titles of King and Queen may, of course, be used.
No stoner crew is complete without that one friend who devolves into fits of giggles when that weed hits. And no stoner party is complete without a few giggles all around.
A term of honor, this one is reserved for the old-soul Rasta whose hair carries strength and whose weed brings with it age-old wisdom.
Stoners come in a variety of flavors, and while some are wise and nurturing and others are full of life and laughter, some are the embodiment of stardust: children of the stars, magical dreamlike individuals that can make the smoke sesh feel way trippier just by being present.
The ‘60s were, in essence, a renaissance for the stoner community. It brought marijuana into the mainstream and shifted perceptions from it being harmful to it being a recreational substance with medicinal value. Moreover, it became associated with hippies, who stood for peace and love.
The era also helped bring upon us the term “Space Cowboy,” a reference to someone who is always high. The name has been used as a song title by everyone from The Millers to Jamiroquai to Kacey Musgraves. And now it finds new life as one of many hippie stoner names out there.
Kief, in popular usage, simply refers to weed. More specifically, it is the name for a traditional cannabis-tobacco mix made in Morocco. And Chief Keef, as some stoners might know, is a pioneering – and often controversial – rapper who has been termed the “Father of Modern Rap” by some.
So if your group includes a stoner that is as real as they are contentious, with a penchant for unique blended strains that elevate the sesh, they’re probably a Chief Kief.
If you’ve ever wondered what the difference between a captain and a chief is, you’re not alone. A captain commands the ship and is responsible for everyone and everything on it. A chief handles the cargo and maintains the watch. Together, along with their crew, they keep the ship afloat and on course.
So while your Chief makes sure there’s some dank weed on the table at all times, Captain Pot’s role is to navigate the party and set the mood.
A staple in every sesh is the stoner who starts out as normal as can be but descends into gibberish as the night progresses. Stoney Baloneys, expectedly, pair perfectly with Cottonmouths and are, despite their nonsensical ramblings, the life of many parties.
Whatever level of experience each stoner brings to the table, there must always be a Roach Coach if one hopes to partake in a joint rolled to heavenly perfection.
The name “Mary Jane” can mean very different things to each generation. It could refer to Spider-Man’s primary love interest across the franchise, to Buster Brown’s beau, or to marijuana. If you happen to know a lovely redheaded stoner who always shows up in fashionable shoes, they’re probably your very own MJ.
Sugar and Spice
If there’s one thing hippies were known for, it was their love for Asian culture. From spirituality to fashion to food, everything Indian was in vogue in the ‘60s and ‘70s. As it turns out, the region had quite the healing touch on the souls of the flower children.
The blending of delicate sweetness with the vibrant furor that defines the East was a prominent feature among hippies. And like candied ginger that can cure several ailments, Sugar and Spice is the tonic that makes everyone at the party feel instantly better from the minute they show up.
Speaking of people that uplift you, don’t forget your Cloud Nines: stoners that are always riding the best high and bringing love and light to all who cross their paths. Mostly, though, they tend to be lost in the massive cloud of smoke that surrounds them.
What’s in a Name?
A whole lot of love and a touch of humor, at least to hippies. The bearers of joy and kush were more than just aesthetics. They were the most revolutionary crew of all, simply because they wanted peace above everything. And if there’s one thing these hippie stoner names have in droves, it’s the joy of simply enjoying the company of your fellow human beings.
