Hybrid strains are a marijuana strain type that contain genetics from both indica strains and sativa strains, allowing them to produce both types of effects. The strains are generally regarded by consumers as enjoyable and can be both energizing and relaxing, depending on specific strain lineage.
Hybrid strains are frequently used to help alleviate stress, headaches and depression. They can be used at anytime of day but users should be mindful of the strains dominant traits.
The two main types of cannabis, sativa and indica, are used for a number of medicinal and recreational purposes.
Sativas are known for their “head high,” an invigorating, energizing effect that can help reduce anxiety or stress and increase creativity and focus.
Indicas are typically associated with full-body effects, such as increasing deep relaxation and reducing insomnia.
Although research examining these effects is limited, it appears these plants have more in common than previously thought.
