The discussion around the “correct” spelling of marijuana or marihuana is ongoing within Canada’s public and the legal communities. Marijuana tends to prevail as the general word of choice as it is phonetically friendly, and it aligns with how marijuana is commonly seen, spelled, and read in the news/media. As marijuana is seen and sold more regularly across different countries, states, and provinces, a big differentiator may become Canadian vs. American spelling.
The two countries already distinguish some words like neighbour, colour, and cheque so it is very fitting that Marijuana will be included. “Marijuana” may become the norm in the US, while “Marihuana” may reign in Canada – two similar words for the same product. Stay tuned on Primo Cannabis to see what the final word is.
