    The Quintessential 90s Experience | Brick Weed, Water Pipes, and The Search For Kind Bud

    The Quintessential 90s Experience | Brick Weed, Water Pipes, and The Search For Kind Bud

    On today's ep. of Breeders Syndicate, the guys discuss their personal experience with cannabis during the golden 1990s era!

    Highlights of this throwback conversation include the 'joy' of deseeding compressed brown weed + getting swindled by green pretendica, smoking out of household items/fruit, why Supreme Video in Kenosha was the spot for water pipes (but not bongs!), why high grade 90s beer is actually midsy in hindsight, how secret resin chambers for personal nugs served as the prototype for Moonrocks, crude resin-scraping technology + the introduction of terms like dank and schwag,  the advent of glass pipes thanks to Bob Snodgrass, the dangers of cleaning your old-school piece with rubbing alcohol, why the guys love everything about Skunk VA, a time before digital scales existed (thanks postal scales and triple beams!), hemp becoming both legal and illegal in the 1930s/40s + how the Hemp For Victory Program inadvertently led to multiple generations of 'ditch-weed'.

    All that plus Grandma's undefeated weed-detecting radar, how the search for kind bud created a cultural movement in Holland, why catchy strain names do historians no favors, punk rock culture vs. deadhead culture, the difference between each historic Headband cut, smoking Big Sur Holy, the origin story of Durban Poison + C99 + Blue Dream and why bagseed runs the game,  a rousing round of the rename game featuring Puck/Skelly and Dog Shit/Electric Bugaloo, Notsodog Headband's relationship to Mean Gene's world famous Root Beer + why CSI: Humboldt is breeding with it, the excitement of Breeders Syndicate getting started with platforms like Twitch + YouTube, why Speakeasy is the real MVP, and so much more!
