El Gallo, translated from Spanish to English, is technical, The Rooster. However, cannabis connoisseurs are probably more inclined to its origins as Mexican slang for Marijuana. Our roots run deep, as we are the original, the backbone, and the true way.
Enhancing Life’s Adventures
Starting in the mid-1970’s Mexico experienced a dramatic drought and all the farmers were responsible for feeding their villagers. They looked for an alternative way to feed their people. Then they learned that if they grew these special crops could it could help solve their problems. Although these crops couldn’t be eaten they could be sold and that would bring in the money to feed their people. Now being the predominant citizens of those villages they didn’t want to talk about Cannabis or Sensimillia in front of the children and those that did not need to know.
So it became a cultural lingo or slang if you will. When referencing Cannabis in town you were to refer to it as your Rooster Crop. “El Gallo is Spanish for the Rooster” Then main reason being was anybody that who needed to know, knew you don’t have Rooster Crops.
And so began to forever reference to the Rooster to just enjoy cannabis.
