Ditch Weed

Also known as: schwag

What does “Ditch Weed” mean?

Also called “feral cannabis.” Essentially, it refers to cannabis plants found growing in the wild. These plants are remnants of the days when industrial hemp was grown in the midwest, and as a result, they have little-to-no THC content and are not suitable for consumption. While some entities put forth efforts to eradicate ditch weed, it's a low priority for many, since it's similar to trying to get rid of thistle or dandelions.

Example usage:

“I used to be jealous of my older brother, who bragged about smoking ditch weed. Now, all I can think about is how low-quality that feral weed must have been.”
