Are Old-School Strains Potent Enough?
This is the primary concern for many growers and smokers. According to popular belief, classic strains from the previous century are far less potent than the current offerings of the marijuana seeds market. However, that’s hardly more than an urban legend.
On average, today’s buds have slightly higher levels of THC compared with the classic marijuana strains samples from the past decades, but we’re talking about a few percentage points – nothing that can’t be remedied with an extra puff or two. In any case, the ballpark is the same, and the best old-school strains originating as far back as the 70s or 80s, such as Afghani #1 or Neville’s Haze, produce the same mind-numbing effects as last season’s hottest items.
Moreover, modern breeders work mostly with the same old gene pool, so the trending crowd-pleasers of today are the same timeless classics with just a bit of clever genetic reshuffling done on them.
Unique Classic Flavors
One reason to try classic cannabis strains is to experience a real-deal old-school smell and taste. Every decade has its preferences. Now, it seems to be all about the sweetness of pastry, ice cream, candy, and fruity drinks. In the 1970s, Europe was enveloped by the smell of hash associated with Afghani and Moroccan landraces, while the 80s saw the rise of Skunks and the Northern Lights family. In the 90s came Hazes, which endured well into the current century. All are amazing in their own right and worthy of your attention.
Dependable Cultivars That Have Stood the Test of Time
Whether you grow cannabis for pleasure or depend on it as a cash crop, you probably don’t want to take any chances and are seeking a strain that dependably delivers every time. By choosing classic strains of weed, you’ll get some of the finest buds you’ve ever grown. Such gems as Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and Amnesia Haze have proven their worth as cultivars in thousands and sometimes millions of successful runs.
Most old-school cannabis seeds are stable, true-breeding genetic lines and produce the same healthy, vibrant, and high-yielding plants as when they originated – in the 80s, 70s, or even 60s. It’s also a common good practice for seed banks to re-release their most popular oldies, sometimes with a slightly different name like Skywalker Haze. These new and improved releases are meant to take the best features of the original up a notch, such as potency, terpene profile, or bud production.
Autoflowering Releases Based on Classic Genetics
When choosing fully proven and established old-school strains of weed for yourself, don’t pass on autoflowers. Strictly speaking, this type of cannabis only emerged at the beginning of this century, but you’ll find dozens of familiar oldies now offered as autoflowering feminized seeds. With names like White Widow Auto or Wild Thailand Ryder, they offer an authentic experience in terms of effects and flavors while finishing their life cycle in a short 9-10 weeks from seed.
Your Choice of Old-School Weed Seeds is Limitless
No matter what genetics you prefer – Sativa, Indica, or hybrid – there are enough first-rate old-school strains in every category. While half a century ago, the most sought-after buds were Sativas with names like Colombian Gold telling a tale of far-off exotic places, home growers soon recognized the value of pure or almost pure Indicas such as Mazar and then began to cross the two to get varieties that contained the best of both worlds. In our collection of oldies, we feature the whole breadth of the Sativa-Indica spectrum.
