Pre-2000, the variety of cannabis strains were not as robust as it is today. Sure – there were potent strains, but back then, cannabis was still very much a “counter-culture” thing. Some medical patients were using it, but for the most part – the official narrative was that cannabis is bad. The vast majority of the cannabis being consumed in the day came from Mexico. And if you know anything about “Brick Weed” – potency usually sat somewhere between 5%-10%. Cannabis that exceeded 10% was considered to be “Dank”.
