One of the most frequently asked questions on the Internet is why no emoji for Weed has been created so far. The lack of emojis in this topic is due to the fact that cases of marijuana legalization both in the U.S. and globally are still isolated. Presumably, we will see such emojis only after the legalization of cannabis at the federal level in the United States.

In fact, so far, all official applications to create emoji with marijuana have been rejected. But the world is not standing still, and maybe soon this emoji will appear after all. In the meantime, let’s see what we can replace it with.

πŸ₯¦ The Broccoli emoticon has been assigned the code U+1F966, with which it was added to the Food & Drink section of the Unicode 10.0 standard in 2017.

🌿 The Twig emoticon was assigned the code U+1F33F, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 6.0 standard in 2010.

☘️ The Shamrock emoticon was assigned the code U+2618 U+FE0F, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 4.1 standard in 2005.

πŸ€ The Four-leaf Clover emoticon was assigned the code U+1F340, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 6.0 standard in 2010.

πŸƒ The Leaves in the Wind emoticon was assigned the code U+1F343, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 6.0 standard in 2010.

🐲 The Dragon Head emoticon was assigned the code U+1F432, with which it was added to the Animals and Nature section of the Unicode 6.0 standard in 2010.

Meaning and Use of the Weed Emoji

As you can see, there are no limits to your imagination. In fact, it all depends on your particular social circle, because marijuana can even be labeled with 🍁 Maple Leaf, as it resembles it in shape, or an emoji with πŸ’¨ Smoke. Also there can be different combinations of emoticons, which stand for the same meaning. But we still decided to emphasize on those emoji that are used in the context of Weed most often. Let’s take a closer look at them, shall we?

πŸ₯¦ Strange as it may seem, it’s the emoji depicting such a useful product as Broccoli that is most often used as a substitute for the Weed icon. There’s a matter of both color and shape, resembling a cannabis leaf as much as possible. But it all depends on how well you and your interlocutor understand each other, so be careful.

Broccoli emoticon

🌿This simple green sprig is also very often used as a substitute for the Marijuana emoji. And for exactly the same reasons as broccoli. For a more accurate meaning, use this sprig in combination with emoji like 🚬 and πŸ’¨.

Twig emoticon

☘️ Clover leaf is also used by many as a Weed. In fact, it is quite easy to guess, because it is difficult to use this emoticon in any context other than Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day.

Shamrock emoticon

πŸ€ And this is already a four-leaf clover, a symbol of luck and good fortune. But today we are not talking about this side of the meaning of this emoji. Strangely enough, this clover is also a substitute for the Weed emoticon, but, unlike the previous emoji, the four-leaf clover is more often accompanied by additional clarifying symbols.

Four-leaf Clover emoticon

πŸƒ A less obvious but no less popular substitute for the Weed emoji is flying leaves. They too are extremely often used in combination with other clarifying icons( such as smoke or cigarette.

Leaves in the Wind emoticon

🐲 And here’s the problem with the asterisk. Not everyone will understand the image of a green dragon in the context of smoking marijuana, but it is still one of the most popular emoji in this category. The dragon’s head is often accompanied by the πŸ’¨ or even 🍁 emoji.

Dragon Head emoticon

🚬 This is perhaps the most obvious one here. The cigarette emoji indicates the smoking process in the best possible way, and to avoid confusing regular tobacco with cannabis, combine it with one of the green emoji described above.

Cigarette emoticon

Conclusion

Each year the Unicode Consortium expands the modification of existing emoticons and adds up to seventy new ones. In order for a new emoticon to appear, you need to make a detailed application that argues for the importance of the new emoticon, and attach a corresponding picture. The approval process takes up to two years. So, it is likely that soon a real Weed Emoji will be added to Unicode, but for now you will have to be satisfied with abstract emoticons that remotely resemble a marijuana leaf or inflorescence, for example, broccoli or clover leaf.

We also should not forget about the internet creation known as Cursed Emoji. In their variety you can find such emoticons as a cannabis leaf, or a Rastaman in a brightly colored knitted cap. What could be more specific?
