back home, there was always seelction, even if it was one kind. We grew up on mexican, central and south amercians. If u had 10 dealers, each with mexican schwagg, each dude would have a differnt type or grade of mexican, so there was variety.. SSSC stock hit like around 89 and 1990.. NL#5 hit in the 90's, it was the gold standard. Indoor was called hydro, and even if there wasnt a named strain, one dude's "dro" was always differnt from another dude's "dro". Midwest kindbud was in there too, later it was called corn, and still each dude's stash was differnt. Dutch strians were still the topshelf then and until the turn of the century. I moved and years later when i return, i saw the selection had turned into all chemdawg bullshit. Og kush, cookies, diesels everywhere. More choices in the cities than rural areas, but no matter how many choices, youre still limited to chemdawg lineage nowadays. Pens and edibles are everywhere. they are legit in packages and labeled. Once in a blue moon, u see a homemade pen.. That being said, the best ganja is always the ganja that you grow yurself. Homegrown will always be better than any street weed or dispensary garbage.
