When I genuinely started smoking marijuana way back in high school at first, I was told there were only two kinds available.
The cheap weed was generally called “mids,” plus it was always air-compressed, brick-weed of Mexican origin that was totally filled with stems plus seeds.
The overpriced cannabis was called “dro,” “chronic,” or “crippy.” This was often hydroponically-grown cannabis that was seedless mostly, which used to be called “sensimilla” so many decades ago. That’s about all I knew when I first entered school, however I was in for a relatively immense surprise when I learned about all of these strains plus their genetic origins. Every one of us had strains like Sour Diesel, White Widow, Berry White, Blueberry, Skunk, Girl Scout Cookies, Jack Herer, Bubba Kush, plus OG Kush which were all derived from a ton of genetic crosses of the cannabis plant that start with landrace cannabis strains. Landrace cannabis are the true varieties that are found in the wild in numerous locations across the globe. The Hindu Kush Mountains plus the fields of Jamaica are basically just two examples of locations where quality marijuana grows naturally altogether. There are fantastic locations in Africa, Thailand, Mexico, South America, plus Hawaii that possess the finest landrace strains of the marijuana plant. All of the insane strains you see in recent times at the cannabis dispensaries can all trace their lineage back to these original landrace varieties. Some strains such as Girl Scout Cookies have a landrace as a direct parent, which is Durban Poison in this unique example. I adore trying up-to-date strains of medical cannabis, especially if a fairly nice landrace strain happens to be involved.
