The term means hydroponic, as in hydroponically grown weed.
There are male and female marijuana plants, when you let a male release pollen onto a female plant the female will produce seeds in her buds. If there are no male plants around the female plant will still produce her buds, but there will be no seeds inside, which gives the plant a lot more energy to produce THC. This is commonly referred to as “hydro”, though to grow seedless bud you wouldn’t necessarily need to use hydroponics.
Hydroponics systems work by filling a bucket filled of hydro ton (airy rock pellets) with nutrient enriched water for a few seconds every few minutes. The plant uses little energy to grow roots as it doesn’t need to expand to get nutrients it needs, and can use it’s energy to grow leafs and buds.

What does dro mean?
Shortened from hydroponics, dro is slang for a very potent form of marijuana grown indoors without soil.
Where does dro come from?
Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil. The word, attested in the early 1900s, joins Greek roots meaning “water labor”—which is apt, because hydroponics fertilizes plants with nutrients in water. The technique is especially effective for growing plants in rocky, arid regions. Or indoors away from prying eyes, if you’re interested in growing another kind of plant.
In the 1960s, marijuana cultivators applied innovations in hydroponics to grow cannabis. By the 1980s, growing weed via hydroponics was so common that the two became practically synonymous. Marijuana smokers began referring to hydroponic weed as hydro, for short.
The shortened slang was especially popular in hip-hop music in the 1990s. An early example comes from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s 1995 track “1st of tha Month,” which features the line: “Hittin’ that reefer hydro, you know the cut, so fuck them po-po.” Hydro became further clipped as dro, as heard in Nice & Smooth’s 1997 “Scared Money”: “Sippin on the Heine’, puffin’ on the ‘dro.”
Cannabis connoisseurs may distinguish between dro and run-of-the-mill bud (regs or reggies. From hip-hop, dro quickly spread in the 2000s as shorthand for marijuana, regardless of whether it was grown hydroponically.
