Hey, what’s the origin of the name Fernway?
We get this question a lot – and we’re glad you asked, because it’s one of our favorite questions.
Fernway is inspired by fernweh – a word that means “the longing for faraway places”, or “the opposite of homesickness”. We love this idea so much because it’s deeply resonant to our experiences with cannabis. It’s the feeling that moves us to explore new things, and to experience the familiar with a new perspective.
Think about every long walk you’ve taken with a vape, or how exciting it is to get high in a new place. Think about how the right vape can give your favorite song new depths or heights, or make your favorite breakfast sandwich into something truly out-of-this-world. Think about how cannabis brings strangers together and gives them a space to share, connect, and learn from each other.
You might ask – why’s it spelled Fernway? The simple answer is that it’s easier to pronounce. Just like a vape – simple, user-friendly, no fumbling or confusion.
We believe that cannabis makes the good life even better, and fernweh is the force that propels us to seek out the good life – and cannabis is what makes that good life even better once we find it.
