What Is Hybrid Weed?

Hybrid strains can be a combination of any plant varieties and will typically depict phenotypes that are either sativa-dominant, indica-dominant, or equally balanced. Hybrid weed plants may also contain genetics from ruderalis varieties, a third variety of the cannabis plant that isn’t dependent on light exposure to start flowering, a process known as “auto-flowering.”

What Does Hybrid Weed Feel Like Compared to Sativas and Indicas?

If you’re wondering what hybrid weed feels like, the effects of a hybrid strain depend completely on the two plants it is based on. Sativas are generally known for their uplifting and energetic effects, while indicas are felt more in the body and tend to be more sedative. A perfectly balanced hybrid will give you a mixture of both: uplifting your mood, while still relaxing your body.

Not all hybrids are perfectly balanced though, as some are known to favor one strain over the other. These are known as sativa-dominant and indica-dominant.

Who Are Hybrids For?

Hybrids are great for people who want a balanced high. They are not as cerebral and psychedelic as a sativa can be, nor will they put you to sleep like an indica. This is a great place to start if you’re new to marijuana, but keep in mind that all bodies are different and will thereby react differently to various strains. So, the best way to find out what works for you is to go out and experiment. New hybrids are constantly being made by marijuana growers and testers, so there will never be a shortage of options to pick from!

Conclusion

Cannabis, when used correctly, can be an incredible tool for physical ailments and mental struggles, and hybrids are a great way to begin your journey into the world of marijuana.

Indica Marijuana

Indica cannabis is known for its sedating, relaxing effects. The strongest of these strains are even known to cause “couch-lock,” a condition where the body feels heavy and the person simply wants to sit or lie down until the high has worn off. Indica strains are often recommended for those who suffer from anxiety, as well as people who have muscle pain or spasms.

Growers also value sativa cannabis plants for their signature characteristics. Indicas tend to grow shorter than their sativa counterparts. In addition to this, the plants are bushy and the leaves tend to grow close together.
