Marijuana strains are similar to trends in that they come and go as other strains become more popular. All across the world, in the history of marijuana, there are hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of different cannabis strains. Especially now, as the demand for more potent strains increases, new strains are being introduced into the industry and becoming popular among consumers. Many strains that were once popular and commonly smoked among users are now nearly nonexistent though they are not forgotten.
During the 1960s, Chocolate Thai was a popular strain of marijuana. The bud first made its appearance in the United States as “Thai sticks”, spindly flowers tied to a bamboo stick renowned for their high potency. Consumers from the ‘60s will remember these flowers as slender and airy, brown in color, and possessing a unique chocolate-coffee aroma. This low-yielding, long-flowering strain only produced male flowers and seeds that are incredibly difficult to clone though, which may be the reason why Chocolate Thai no longer exists in its original form. Mango is another strain that isn’t quite as popular as it once was, though it is arguably one of the first fruit-flavored strains. With only 15-20% THC, Mango is consumed less due to the high demand for more potent strains.
