Hey, @gpitel! I couldn't agree more with @Countryboyjvd1971. I'm 53, and I remember a few people who grew their own, but no one actually smoked it because it was awful. The pot we bought in the 70s and 80s - even the best of it - was garbage compared to the worst grower on this forum. Lol.
The genetics in the seed alone that we buy from Bergmans is so far superior, that even without all the new technology like lighting and nutrients, you will get a far better quality weed than anything from years ago.
People are just starting to realize this now, hence all the new growers, especially my age and older because our minds are blown by how much easier it is today. LOL! It truly is amazing.
That squashed up brick was in that form for transporting across the border and no one cared what the quality was. I remember getting bags of little more than seeds and stems, and the weed you did scrape together barely got you high... and that was the good stuff! LOL!
Occasionally, we would get "sense" - remember that? It wasn't too bad, but it was a treat because it was so expensive. Now, it's all "sense", so you don't hear that anymore, it's a given. At least this is my experience. I haven't gotten a seed in a bag of weed since the 90s!
I'm out of "likes" too.
