90's & Early 2000's bud was all about bag appeal and memorable high. Nowadays hype strains are all about bag appeal & taste/aroma.

Hate to sound overly nostalgic, but IMO old school weed scene was way better. All the heavy hitters nowdays are too closely related, and the effects too similar. 90's/ Early 2K elites were more unique, and the effects more varied. There's no doubt that nowadays strains are bred more for flavor, and they taste good but I smoke for the effects, not the flavors.

people tend to have a very narrow vision of the cannabis, saying something is the best is to be a little ignorant of what's out there, cookies are good, og's are good, 90 dutch seeds were good (most of the nowadays usa clones are clearly phenos or crosses of plants that were found in this genepool),but to me is the same level of potency/quality as manipuri ganja i grew a couple of years ago, a good nd potent african, or an old school mexican...quality ganja is always the same, and always has been, every generation tends to think that they invented the wheel and are the pinacle of evolution, but this is not the reality, the reality is that it's been very potent and fine ganja for thousands of years in asia, 90s dutch weed was no better than the best mexicans, afghans, punto rojo, or the euphoric good mexican or nepalese plants, but not worse too, just different remixes of the same old good quality cannabis that humans have been breeding and using for generations

I can only speak of what was going around back then in the EU.
But up until now I haven't found anything that could beat the orginal cuts of White Widow and Amnesia Haze.

Makes me think that the relentless pursuit of THC levels hasn't been for the better. Sure it's easier to market strains if you have a higher number than your competitor but that's because buyers don't understand the whole picture.
I don't know the science behind it either but it seems to me the high we get is about everything working together. Terpenes and other cannabinoids and THC. I'm sure I've smoked strains in the 15% THC range that have given me a better high than some 25%+ strains.

The new polyhybrid stuff does seem weak,, poor vigour,, lack of selection and real breeding ability, just kids crossing anything and everything just to make some dumb name up like purple melon skittles or something.. No substance just here today gone tomorrow hype..

That's true the old White Widow with the orange faint/ skunky woody pheno is hard to beat. Some of the SSH and other Haze. But there was some lime green rks that was crazy in the late 80s. It was in the Ohio Valley region. I'm not sure the lineage or name. It's hard to say one thing is the best but I've been partial to the OG(SFV) original. I've just liked it a lot. But the WW and many other strains I loved also

Yes I do agree with the dumb names. I don't wanna single out guys but some of this dumb/nasty/perverted names I've seen is just ridiculous. I mean it's getting to were I'd be embarrassed to tell somebody the names some of these guys are calling there strains. I was thinking the other day ....damn that's what you call your work/strain. I dunno each to his own I guess

I don't like when people select names that associate cannabis with other drugs pharmaceutical or not. Things like Green Crack and Oxy Cotton. The further we can distance ourselves from that madness the better IMO.

Green crack did used to annoy me. Its a crap smoke anyway which is why it failed to get much popularity.

My last run was the DNA Skywalker x ingemars WW.. I liked it a lot except that one of my two ladies was a tangie x that snuck in the pack of seeds, was a bit annoyed at dna for that.. I still cant get anything as good as the widow i used to buy in the early 2000s though.. The taste was hashy skunky and may not have had tropical fruit terps but it put you on your ass with a BIG grin for at least an hour, super talkative as well.. Personally I want bang for buck, I dont aim to smoke flavourful daytime weed overall..

The other thing that annoys me is the fancy name kush game. Gimme SFV and I'm done pretty much, I dont need it crossed with LA con or whatever and given a fancy name its so pointless.. Think I'd like to see a widow SFV cross now lol

I dont understand or agree with these perverted porn reference names either, what's the point?.. It's capitalism I guess, gotta get eyes on the brand rather than sell the thing through quality and/or hard work.

I'm glad you guys said that. That's my recollection as well. I've smoked a lot of different weed over the years but only a handful of strains are memorable. 90s WW is one of them.
