Hybrid cannabis breeding has been a cross between pure Sativa genetics and pure indica genetics for decades, hoping to create a “perfect” cannabis strain that all consumers will enjoy. Because of this, we now have thousands of species that can make us feel in different ways.
Hybrid strains are cultivars produced from genetic crosses of both Indica and Sativa. Due to their diverse background, these species are generally very robust and adapt to different climates. A closer look at the more than 140 cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis reveals a more detailed classification.
Some scientists are now considering more than three commonly known varieties (Sativa, Indica, Hybrid) and some cultivated varieties are now predominantly different chemotypes (THC dominant, low THC and CBD dominant).
Hybrids often promote the satisfaction and well-being of those who use them, making them more satisfying and relaxing. One of the more beneficial effects of hybrid strains is increased creativity. People who use hybrids can feel more creative and imaginative with new ideas and topics to discuss. Sativa-dominant strains are especially helpful in promoting concentration, stimulating and stimulating people, and helping them focus.
Patients report using it to control daytime anxiety. They also report that hybrid edibles, which are predominantly indica, may help manage pain in the body. Sativa-dominant hybrids are sought after by some to improve mood and manage depression. Each hybrid strain has a slightly different chemical species, so the effect will be slightly different depending on the chemical properties.
Personal chemistry varies from person to person, and discovering the effects of your favorite cannabis is often a matter of trial and error. That said, hybrids are great for beginners who may not know how cannabis makes them feel, or how they want cannabis to feel them. Hybrids are also ideal for medical cannabis patients who start using the product on a regular basis and need a “balanced” effect that can be tolerated throughout the day.
Hybrids can be indica or sativa dominant. In other words, there are few characteristics of secondary varieties and it expresses the characteristics of dominant parents. For example, hybrids that are dominated by indica, such as cookies, are most likely to affect the body and provide a more sedative effect. Sativa-dominant hybrids tend to produce energetic Sativa effects.
