Welcome back to another info session covering the wonderful world of cannabis strains! Our previous blogs focused on the wonder twins: Indica and Sativa. So this month on Explain the Strain, we’re featuring Hybrid cannabis strains to bring you the absolute best of both worlds. Yep, you guessed it: hybrids blend favourite aspects of Indica and Sativa to yield unique variations to suit every cannabis preference.
All About Hybrids
Since people from all walks of life enjoy marijuana products, it stands to reason that everyone has different preferences. Maybe you find Indica makes you a tad too sleepy, while Sativa makes you more excitable than you’d like — so what if adding them together helps balance out your experience? That’s how hybrid cannabis strains were born.
Due to the flexibility of hybrid strains, they rose to fame quickly. Fortunately, they also happen to grow easily, which means this type of cannabis isn’t hard to find. Hybrid plants grow fast with a large yield, albeit with shorter stalks than you’d find with Indica or Sativa.
Hybrids are expertly grown in multiple variations to emphasize specific traits from both Sativa and Indica strains. Based on what kind of experience you’re aiming for, you may lean toward a hybrid that equally combines both strains or one in which either strain is more dominant.
Popular Hybrid Strains
Since hybrid strains blend Indica and Sativa strains, they can be a bit of a mixed bag — literally. Depending on which of the two strains is dominant, hybrids vary significantly. That said, we’ve rounded up a few of the most commonly sought after hybrid strains which include:
– White Widow,
– NYC Diesel, and
– Purple Kush.

Common Hybrid Uses
As mentioned above, the type of hybrid strain you choose will depend on what kind of high you want. Let’s say you’re looking for cannabis that may help with pain relief, but you find the sedating impact of Indica far too strong. You might find adding a splash of Sativa’s energy into the mix helps take the edge off. The uses of hybrids are endless — and you can customize the blend to suit your needs.
Potential Hybrid Side Effects
Thanks to the custom-build nature of hybrid strains, it’s not outside the realm of possibility for you to find a strain crafted to avoid the very side effects that you hate about Sativa and Indica. That said, there’s no escaping the munchies — sorry! Similarly, if you dislike the “skunk” smell common with Indica strains, most hybrids that are Indica-dominant will probably carry the same odour. Even then, though, you can always opt for edibles to avoid the scent altogether, no matter the strain.
