Reggie refers to low to medium quality marijuana that is mass-produced for the black market. It can also be called “mids” or “reggie weed.” The name may come from “regs,” short for regular, referring to run-of-the-mill buds. Unlike exotic strains, reggie is common and easy to find.
Reggie is produced in bulk for cheap prices and wide availability on the street level. It may be harvested prematurely and lack proper curing. Effects tend to be mild and short-lived. The quality is too low for discerning consumers and legal dispensaries.
For growing en masse, reggie strains like Mexican brick weed are fast and hardy. Cartels focused on profit over quality. But legalization makes way for small batch, craft cannabis. Now consumers can enjoy exotic flavors and nuanced highs instead of tolerating subpar reggie.
