What does “Chronic” mean?

While Chronic is the name of a specific hybrid strain, stoners use it as a slang term for exceptionally strong cannabis. The definition even differed depending on your location: East Coast dwellers used “chronic” to refer to cannabis laced with cocaine, while the West Coast used it to describe high-quality weed. The ‘90s West Coast rap scene cemented the latter meaning as definitive with Dr. Dre's beloved triple platinum album The Chronic and sextuple platinum Chronic 2001.
