#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Healthy”, “Medicinal”, “Organic” and “Vita”. These terms not only apply to cannabis, but also portray the idea that cannabis can be good for the health of customers. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.
If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.
Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great cannabis business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name conveys the healthy effects that cannabis can have.
This name conveys the more laid back side of the cannabis business.
This name conveys the health benefits the products offer.
This name conveys a fun time using the products with friends.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great cannabis business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful cannabis businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Green Valley Wellness combines the concept of green cannabis and the green environment in the area. This is a name that really conveys health and happiness to all who visit the business.
The Nirvana Center is a name that brings a sense of the metaphysical to the business. There’s no denying that it’s a cool name, which is sure to draw customers to the store.
Holistic Health New Zealand is a company with some great repetitive sounds in the name. It also presents the idea of health for the entire being, which is something becoming more and more popular in modern times.
1. Do a Competitor Analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused cannabis terms like smoke, weed or high. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real cannabis business named “Green Valley Wellness”.
This is a name that really paints an image of health. The landscape is green, the cannabis is green and everything appears fresh and healthy. Because of this, it’s a name that customers can feel good about.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Healthy High, Relief Leaf
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Stoner Station – is a name that can really only apply to the high of cannabis)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable cannabis business names could be:
- Cadara Cannabis
- Nugeru Cannabis
- Bidala Cannabis
You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Candor Cannabis and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like CandorrCannabis, Candorbis or CanndorCannabis.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
