The Green Room: Hybrid
Hybrid cannabis strains have both Indica-dominant and Sativa-dominant properties that provide a balanced, stable high. The major difference is that Indicas and Sativas provide a different “high”. Hybrids combine the relaxing body, drowsy, mellow high with the pain relief from the Indica strain, and also provides the uplifting, introspective high that encourages creativity from the Sativa strains. In the Indica vs. the Sativa world, when you’re looking for elements of both strains, you can never go wrong with a hybrid. Hybrids provide a strong Indica or Sativa euphoric high, depending on which dominant strain overpowers the other. Depending on the genetics of each strain, it will often take on the characteristics of both strains. When bred together they create a new strain that has both qualities and properties of those particular strains. The traits that come from the lineage of each breed can often dominate each other. These varieties are what defines Hybrids from Indicas and Sativas. This is called marijuana breeding, in which two different strains are breeded to create a unique strain.
