Hybrid Cannabis

Indica and Sativa are the two main varieties of the cannabis plant utilised for their medicinal value.  Many strains are crosses of those two varieties. Within each of those varieties and crosses are another huge number of individual strains.

When you combine different Indicas, different Sativas or a combination thereof, it is considered a hybrid. The resulting hybrid strains will grow, mature and deliver their medicinal components based on the relativity percentages they end up containing.

Hybridization of the Cannabis Plant

Hybridization has many benefits to the breeder. They can attempt to create a breed that can fit exact specifications required by the end user. In today’s market, the hybrids dominate the market, as most strains have been crossed with each other previously.

Hybrid Sativa

These are Sativas that have been worked on by a breeder to fit within a special criteria. This criteria could be specific to the smell or taste of a Sativa. Often these hybrids contain some Indica genetics but appear mostly Sativa in nature.

Hybrid Indica

In terms of medicinal value these are the best hybrids and they are most widely appreciated. Today’s “Kush” strains are a perfect example of these types and are easily the most popular. They tend to have qualities that both grower and patient find highly desirable. The majority of medical cannabis is hybrid Indica.
