Cannasseur is a noun, a portmanteau or mashup of “connoisseur” and “cannabis.” If you’re here, you already know what cannabis is (or you can read our definition here).

What does cannaseur mean?

A connoisseur is an expert in some area, a person who is an authority and has special experience or training. A connoisseur can also be anyone with a highly developed or refined sense of taste.

For example, a wine connoisseur may be able to identify rare wines by tastes others don’t notice; a spice connoisseur may be able to distinguish between many types of curries that seem the same to most people. Some people self-apply the term connoisseur when they have extensive knowledge of and affinity for something; they have become quasi-experts through experience.

So, a cannasseur has developed this level of expertise and knowledge about cannabis. They enjoy consuming cannabis and can distinguish between its many types and varieties more ably than other users.
