Used in dabbing, a relatively new form of weed-smoking where you put concentrated weed onto a nail (hot surface), and then smoke the vapors. The carb cap fits over a nail and allows you to vaporize a full hit at a lower temperature. This lets the weed keep its flavor, since the part of the cannabis responsible for its taste changes when it gets too hot.
"That weed was tasty. Thanks for the carb cap, bro. It worked great."
"If you've never seen one of these before, it's called a carb cap. My ancestors invented it, because being historical makes you smart."
"Don't come back until you apologize and replace my broken carb cap, you mooch -- unless you've got like an ounce of some really dank herb you wanna share, of course."
When you've finished your bowl. People disagree on when exactly a bowl is cashed. Some say it's as soon as the weed starts turning black, whereas others say it's when the weed has basically been turned into ash. Now it's taken on a much broader meaning. Basically, it has now become a synonym for the word "finished."
"How long have we been smoking, man? This is the fifth bowl we've cashed today."
"When I become a business tycoon, I'm not going to tell people they're fired. I'll tell them they're cashed. That'll be cool, right? I'll totally get my own reality show."
"Hey Mr. President, do you wanna hit? Oh, nevermind, this bowl is cashed."

When the nug in the bowl stays lit without the use of a lighter. It therefore is "cherried" because it looks as red as a cherry. This often happens for one of two reasons. One, the bowl has already been passed around a couple times. Or two, the weed is particularly dry when you light it early on.
"You don't even need the lighter. You can just hit it. See? It's cherried."
"Lisa and John are smoking weed in the garden shed: look, you can see the glow from the cherry!"
"My throat, it burns... here, take this pipe away from me. It's cherried really hard right now."
A style of joint that is wider at the end and narrower towards the point, exactly in the shape of a cone. Most cones include a paper crutch to act as a filter but primarily prevent the tip of the joint from closing. Some advantages to a cone joint is a wider end that smokes smoother, burns slower and uses a lot more weed than a straight joint. In Australia, "cone" is slang for bowl, as in a "bong bowl full of weed." In Europe, cone joints are widely used and usually smoked together with tabacoo, and other substances.
"Yeah, we just had a cone because someone lost the pipe."
"Is that a fat cone I see in your pocket, or are you just happy to live in the land of legal weed?"
"My boyfriend is so cute: he only knows how to roll cones."

FMCD stands for full melt clear dome, which is a specific kind of bubble hash. Using a dry sieve and a light screen, the water hash will produce large, clear bubbles when heated. If indirect light is used, the hash will produces puddles instead of distinct bubbles. The larger bubbles that the water hash produces, the stronger the bubble hash will be, which is where the dry sieve and light screen come in as tools to improve the quality of the hash.
"This hash is totally FMCD quality -- I can't believe how huge those bubbles were when you heated it up!"
"FMCD is the wildest of rides, but it's not too easy to come by."
"Yeah, dude, my buddy just got into making FMCD. Every time he invites me over I get to try it out."
