    What was your favorite pot from the day?

    What was the pot that you smoked long ago that you wish that you still had? First thing that I gotta say is that there WAS very strong pot back in the day, it wasn't as prevalent as good weed is now but I think that the best of the best from ago would stand up to even the best weed today. Of course commercial weed ruled the day back then with Columbian, Mexican and Jamaican all having commercial offerings with varying degrees of goodness but there were some that stood out from the crowd.

    I think my all time favorite was from about 1974, a friend walked into my dorm room at UMass with a pound in a plastic bag. Unlike most weed from that time period it wasn't compressed, the bag was plum full of beautiful but seeded buds that were lime green at their center and a lovely bright gold on the outside. Taste was spicy hashy and the high was powerful, very trippy and long lasting. A half dozen people could get stoned off a small joint. I paid $315 for the pound which was the most that I ever paid back then and I was worried because I'd have to charge $35 an ounce at a time when Columbian Gold was selling for $30. I was going to cut it up and take it to my hometown and sell 3/4s of it and keep a quarter but it sold out before I could cut it up that night. Years later I read an article I think was by D J Short and it described Venizualan (I know that spelling ain't even close!) and I'm pretty sure that's what I had happened on to.

    Honorable mention, Wacky Weed!. It was some fugly stuff, looked almost like some cut up black tobacky or something but it was a sledgehammer to the forehead.
    Can't we all just get abong?

              Thai stick circa '68 - '72

                The Skunk I got in the 90's which so strong & stinky it was amazing,it's what really made me fall in love with Mary Jane.also high grade cess we just called it high-grade but this was some special weed indeed lol. Then like everyone else got to mention Thai stick didn't get to try it till the 90's so missed the real 70's stuff they talk about in reefer men , but what we had was really nice . Tried some when I went Thailand last year but it was wasn't the best example, saved a few seeds .Cambodia next

                  I remember when I bought it. Then I took a toke and my mouth dried up and I was extremely stoned.

                    'Kona Gold' circa 2006. Buds actually had an amber/gold look to them. The smell was like fresh carrot tops/earthy/ citrus. Not the most potent weed, but it had an incredibly high ceiling. Colors and sounds were very pleasing and vibrant on this gear. The best daytime weed I've ever had.

                    I knew the grower, so I was able to see the plants a couple of times. The Kona Gold had the most rubbery feeling leaves of any cannabis plant I've ever encountered. Felt almost like a succulent plant.

                    I was very sad the day my grower friend told me that he would have to stop running the Kona because the yield wasn't high enough compared to the flowering time.

                      I have to agree that back in the 70's, the best shit that ever came my way was thai stick also. I also remember some great shit called redbud, that was supposedly from Columbia.
                      But yeah, I wish I had some of that thai stick again.

                        The best cannabis we smoked late 70's was golden,
                        seeded and buds were un pressed.

                        We all called it pot, or Gold. I don't remember cost, maybe 40 bucks for a bag.

                        Some bricked, seeded stuff too. At every party someone had a bag or two.

                        Mostly smoked joints, only bong hits with intimate gatherings.

                        Always someone breaking buds over a double LP to sort
                        out the seeds.

                        Music was Boston, Zeppelin and Steely Dan, Aja. Peppered
                        with Jeff Beck and Fleetwood Mac.

                        For me, my first experience with green bud was with my
                        brother and his wife during a sleepover. So gummy and
                        fragrant, like floral incense.

                        Good times, haven't thought about that for awhile.

                            In the area I was, the very first cannabis from Columbia that I was exposed to was really very special. Always referred to it as 'spice rack' cannabis. The later stuff did not even come close to what first arrived. I have not ever run across cannabis with flavors and tastes quite like that.
                            That which matters most

                              There was a joint of Kuaui (sp) Electric shared among 6 people in the Western part of N. Carolina in 1975 or was it the Thai Stick in 1974-1975. They were awesome. But the cake goes to a lb of Santa Marta Colombian Gold in 1976 for which I paid $500, and in 15 minutes, 12 ounces were sold for $40/oz. I felt bad selling it for that much. It was orange, not yellow gold, and it had no ceiling. Five people would share a joint and we got baked. There is nothing today that compares to those.
