Zaza has been a buzz word flying around for the past year or so. It may be a term that you use often or it may be stored in the deepest part of your brain without you even realizing you’ve heard “zaza” more frequently than you think.
Imagine yourself driving down an open road on a sunny day with nowhere to be, windows down, warm air flowing through your hair. You turn on your radio so you can vibe to some of your favorite tunes. . .
Gucci Mane comes on and you hear, “Backwood full of zaza, I only smoke the greatest zaza. . .”
Not your favorite jam so you switch to 21 Savage and he raps, “Smokin’ on zaza. . .”
Now you should remember how many times you’ve actually heard zaza whether you knew what it was a reference to or not! But there are still a lot of questions. What exactly is zaza? Is it a specific strain or just a general term for marijuana? How much does it cost and where can I get some to try? Here’s what you need to know!
ZaZa is a hybrid marijuana strain. We’re still learning about the flavors and effects of ZaZa. If you’ve smoked this strain before, share your experience by leaving a review.
What is zaza weed?
Many of you are hearing the term zaza which has been popularized by rap culture and social media. There is still a lot of debate within the cannabis community about what zaza is exactly!
Zaza is most commonly used as a reference to top quality, high-grade marijuana. But where did the specific word zaza come from you ask? Well I’ll tell you! The word zaza comes from “exotic” meaning it is rare and high end. Exotic turned into “za-tic” which became “za” then “zaza”!
There is a part of rap culture that stays true to the old saying, “if you got it, flaunt it!” Think of your favorite fun, upbeat hip-hop song. I bet there are references to diamonds, chains, money, jets or anything luxurious; so why would marijuana be off limits? Zaza is simply an extension of this culture!
This could be for a number of reasons. Dispensaries are businesses at the end of the day. If the word zaza is trending and people are unsure of what it truly is, they could sell a zaza strain to jump on that trend and make some extra cash. It also could just be dispensaries honoring marijuana culture. If zaza is a new slang in the industry then why not make some fun strains with that name?
Regardless of why dispensaries are doing what they’re doing, most people in the marijuana community agree that zaza is simply high end marijuana and is not a reference to a specific marijuana strain.
How much does zaza weed cost?
Zaza is basically super expensive marijuana so by definition, it’s not cheap. Prices for marijuana at a dispensary vary based on a number of factors such as quality, time of year, competition and so on. But on average an eighth of marijuana typically ranges from around $25-40 depending on these factors. And for some $40 is on the higher end for an eighth.
Remember an eighth of marijuana is 3.5 grams which can look different based on the strain of marijuana that you choose. But whether it is denser or fluffier, at the end of the day, an eighth is really only about 5-7 buds so a lower price point is more reasonable for an eighth.
Zaza, on the other hand, is not so reasonable since it is “top shelf” marijuana. So in order for marijuana to be considered zaza it has to be much more expensive than the average cost of marijuana at a dispensary. An eighth of zaza can be priced anywhere from $60 to almost $100!
ZaZa is an indica/sativa variety from South Bay Genetics and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±65 days). South Bay Genetics’ ZaZa is a THC dominant variety and is/was never available as feminized seeds.
