Hybrids are a primary marijuana strain type that live between indicas and sativas. Hybrid strains are classified by their ability to produce a unique balance of indica and sativa effects. Hybrids can be both energizing and relaxing, depending on their specific strain lineage.
Who are hybrids right for?
Everyone’s personal chemistry is different and discovering the cannabis effects you like is often a matter of trial and error. That said, hybrids are great for beginners, who might not know how cannabis makes them feel, or know how they want cannabis to make them feel. Hybrids can also be great for medical cannabis patients who are going to be using the product regularly and need “balanced” effects they can tolerate all day long.
What medical effects do the most common hybrids have?
It really depends. Patients report using Blue Dream for daytime anxiety control. Indica-dominant hybrid Cookies can help manage body pain, patients report. Also, Sativa-dominant hybrid Super Lemon Haze is sought after by some to lift mood and manage depression. Each hybrid strain has slightly a different chemotype and thus, slightly different effects, depending on a person’s chemistry.
