Mid is used as a slang term in the context of marijuana to refer to “mid-grade” (middle grade) marijuana that is average in potency or is generally of average quality. This sense of mid has been used since at least the early 2000s.

Starting around the early 2010s, mid started to become used in a more general way to refer to average or mediocre things unrelated to marijuana (though this use was mostly still limited to people familiar with its earlier use as marijuana slang).

The general sense of mid to describe things as being average or unimpressive started to become more popular around 2019.

In the early 2020s, mid also became a popular term on TikTok, where it is often used as an insult.
