Choosing the perfect hybrid cannabis can be difficult because all dispensaries have a wide variety of collections of Sativa, Indica, and hybrid strains on their menus. It will be like standing in front of a beer shop and trying to figure out which beer to purchase and that takes time. But as the saying goes "variety is the spice of life". So, when a new strain comes on the floor, along with it comes a wonderful dilemma of trying something new or go with an old classic you like. Let's discuss more about the strains so that you can choose easily.
The two main marijuana strain categories are Sativa and Indica but people mostly prefer the other one. By the other one, we mean there is also a third option called the Hybrid that contains parts of both. But dividing them into three parts is not very correct. Because the truth is a wide variety of strains already are hybrids. And that leaves only a small category that can be accurately called pure Sativa and Indica.
Hybrid cannabis Popularity
The Hybrids created under man-made conditions are very popular and rightly so. Nowadays the majority of hybrids are a mix of indica and sativa. This is done because the breeders intend to capture some of the best qualities of each parent and then combine them to form something new.
Let us give you an example; Blueberry AK, this hybrid was created by cross-breeding AK-47 (a Dutch Sativa-dominant hybrid) and Blueberry (an Oregon Indica-dominant hybrid). What this cross-breed does is provides a well-balanced cross with phenotypes that take the best qualities of AK-47 and Blueberry.
Expectation from a Hybrid Marijuana
The sativa and indica you see in the dispensary menu list are not pure. While one dispensary may call a given strain Indica, a different dispensary may call the same strain as Sativa. These confusions and inconsistencies come from the hybrid status of the strain. Because there is a constant reshuffling of these hybrid genetics confusing to provide any accurate designation to a particular strain. But it is quite clear and safe to say that high quality hybrid cannabis will result in motivational high, cerebral, and uplifting. On the other hand, indica is more sedative and it will result in sleepiness, hunger, and couch-lock body buzz. Whereas hybrids can behave quite differently.
