What is a hybrid cannabis strain?

A hybrid cannabis strain is a variety created by crossbreeding an indica and a sativa strain. The combination of these two major strain types produces new hybrids that exhibit a unique blend of characteristics from both parent strains.

Hybrid strains contain different ratios of indica and sativa genetics, resulting in a wide range of effects—from the energizing, cerebral high associated with sativas to the relaxing, sedative qualities of indicas. Hybrid strains can be:

  • Sativa-dominant: they contain a higher ratio of sativa genetics and provide more energizing, uplifting, and cerebral effects. Many cannabis enthusiasts prefer sativa-dominant hybrids for daytime use and activities that require mental stimulation and focus.
  • Indica-dominant: they contain a higher percentage of indica genetics (around 60–80% indica). These strains are known for their relaxing, sedative qualities that can induce a strong body high. They are more suited for nighttime use, pain relief, and restful sleep.
  • Balanced hybrids: they maintain an even 50/50 ratio of sativa and indica genetics, delivering a well-rounded experience with uplifting and relaxing effects. 

The precise balance of indica and sativa influences also impacts the plant's physical traits, such as growth structure, flowering time, and terpene profile. 

Why are hybrids better than pure indica or sativa?

Hybrid strains of cannabis are more popular among cannabis users than pure indica and sativa because they combine the desirable traits of both types. Hybrid customization caters to diverse preferences and needs. 

Here are the key reasons why hybrids are often considered superior:

  1. Hybrids allow for a precise balance of indica and sativa genetics. Cultivators can create strains with specific effect profiles, from energizing and cerebral to relaxing and sedative.
  2. Whether you’re into cannabis for recreational purposes or you seek therapeutic relief, hybrids offer many options to suit everyone’s individual needs.
  3. The synergistic combination of cannabinoids and terpenes found in hybrids can potentially amplify their therapeutic benefits and soothe chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and many other conditions.
  4. A combination of different terpene profiles of indica and sativa produces a diverse array of delightful and complex flavors and aromas.
  5. Hybrid strains often exhibit enhanced growing traits, such as increased yield, resistance to pests and diseases, and desirable physical features.
  6. For those seeking a middle ground between the extremes of pure indicas or sativas, balanced hybrids marry their uplifting and relaxing effects to deliver an enhanced therapeutic and medicinal experience.

If you’re looking to experience the benefits of hybrid strains, our low-dose cannabis edibles are the obvious choice. With microdosing cannabis, you get precisely measured low doses of Delta 9 THC and cannabidiol (CBD) tailored to your needs. No more guesswork or inconsistent experiences that come with other consumption methods.

Find out why microdosed edibles are the best way to consume cannabis (hint: the answer lies in the perfect balance of therapeutic relief and recreational enjoyment). 

What are the therapeutic effects of hybrid strains?

Hybrid cannabis strains have remarkable therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Carefully blended genetics of these two distinct strain types provide a harmonious balance of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds that work in synergy to trigger the beneficial entourage effect and deliver targeted relief. 

At microdoses, cannabis has more benefits than at higher doses. For example, lower doses of THC do not have psychoactive effects, especially when balanced with cannabidiol. Here are some of the key therapeutic effects of hybrid strains when consumed in low doses:

  1. Pain relief. The synergistic combination of THC and CBD in hybrid strains has potent analgesic effects. THC and CBD help alleviate chronic pain, inflammation, and muscle soreness through their interaction with the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) and modulating pain signaling pathways. 
  2. Anxiety and stress reduction. The calming and relaxing properties of indica genetics, balanced with the uplifting, energizing effects of sativa, help lower anxiety and stress, and promote your overall mental being. The complementary effects of cannabinoids and terpenes work together to regulate mood and induce a sense of tranquility, which may aid people with social anxiety, stage fright, and OCD.
  3. Improved sleep. Many indica-leaning hybrids are known for their sedative effects, which is why CBD dosed with low amounts of THC can alleviate insomnia and promote restful, restorative sleep patterns.
  4. Neuroprotective benefits. The cannabinoids and terpenes found in hybrid strains may have neuroprotective properties, potentially beneficial for medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. THC and CBD have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that protect and potentially repair neuronal damage and can even promote neurogenesis (formation of new brain cells).
  5. Anti-inflammatory properties. Many hybrid strains with balanced THC and CBD exhibit potent anti-inflammatory effects due to the synergistic action of various cannabinoids and terpenes. These compounds can help mitigate inflammation associated with conditions such as arthritis, Crohn's disease, and autoimmune disorders by modulating the body's inflammatory response.
  6. Anti-nausea and appetite stimulation. The interaction between cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system can regulate nausea and appetite levels. The balanced effects of hybrids can help alleviate nausea and stimulate appetite, making our microdosed edibles useful for those undergoing chemotherapy or dealing with eating disorders.
  7. Focus and creativity. Sativa-leaning hybrids can provide a clear-headed, focused experience, often enhancing creativity and productivity for tasks that require mental stimulation. The unique terpene and cannabinoid profiles of hybrid strains promote cerebral activity, cognitive function, and divergent thinking—but also need a touch of indica’s relaxing properties to soothe the racing mind and lower anxiety.

If you want to test these phenomenal health benefits of hybrid cannabis—but you don’t like the idea of smoking or vaping—we’ve got you. Our low-dose gummies and THC drinks steer clear from the high doses of Delta 9 THC that may cause impairment and ruin your cannabis experience. 

Instead, our gummies contain between 2 and 10 milligrams of THC per serving. 

You’ll also find only 2.5 mg of THC in our liquid Buzz drops™, so you can infuse your favorite mocktails and keep the party going. 

Our buzztails™ are becoming increasingly popular by the day. Don’t wait for others to tell you how great our THC-infused mocktails are. Subscribe to an ongoing Buzz drops™ delivery and experience the bliss yourself.

“These drops are the perfect replacement for my dry January. In fact, this may become a dry 2024! The hit is smooth and steady, just like having a light wine buzz. These don't make me sleepy or feel head in the clouds - just a nice calm, happy little buzz….”

How to choose the right hybrid for you

It’s not always easy to choose the right strain for you, especially if you’re new to cannabis. With so many options available, try to keep the following things in mind: 

  1. Identify your goals: are you seeking relief from pain, anxiety, or insomnia? Or perhaps you're looking for an energizing boost or a balanced, euphoric experience? Define your goals clearly before you set out to find the hybrid that works for you. 
  2. Understand potency: pay attention to the CBD and THC levels, as these will determine the intensity and the effectiveness of the therapeutic effects. Strains higher in THC can be more intoxicating, while higher CBD strains are more relaxing and therapeutic.
  3. Choose the right terpene profile: terpenes are the aromatic compounds that contribute to the unique flavors and effects of each strain. For instance, limonene is uplifting, while myrcene is sedating. Different terpene profiles can help you achieve different experiences.
  4. Start with balanced hybrids: if you're new to cannabis or unsure about your personal preferences, balanced hybrids (50% indica and 50% sativa) are a great starting point. Balanced hybrids allow you to experience a harmonious blend of effects without going too uplifting from the sativa or too sedating from the indica strains.
  5. Experiment with sample sizes: when trying new strains, purchase smaller quantities first. This way, you can gauge how your body and mind respond before committing to larger amounts.
  6. Choose the best consumption method: the way you consume cannabis can also impact the effects. For precise dosing and a consistent experience, microdosed edibles are the perfect choice.
  7. Listen to your body: pay attention to how different strains make you feel, both physically and mentally. Keep a journal to track your experiences and refine your preferences over time.
  8. Seek expert advice: don't hesitate to consult knowledgeable budtenders or online resources. Our experts at nama™ are always here to provide personalized guidance and recommendations based on your unique needs and preferences.

Benefits of hybrid strains FAQ

Many hybrid strains can help with sleep, especially those that are indica-dominant or have a higher indica genetic ratio. The sedative and relaxing effects of the indica genetics in hybrid strains can promote better sleep quality and alleviate insomnia or sleep disorders. 

Indica-dominant hybrids such as Purple Punch, Grape Candy, and Bruce Banner are known for their ability to induce a calming, sleepy effect that can aid in falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night.

Our Sleep Plus edibles balance low THC with CBD and a touch of melatonin to help you fall asleep faster and enjoy a deeper, more restful sleep. Check out our collection of sleep gummies with natural sleep-promoting compounds. 

Here’s how to choose the right gummy for sleep.

Hybrid strains can be highly effective for pain relief. The synergistic combination of cannabinoids and terpenes present in their genetic makeup induces analgesic effects that alleviate many types of pain, including chronic pain conditions, acute pain, and inflammation. Strains such as Blue Dream, Pineapple Express, and Sour Diesel are popular hybrid choices for their ability to provide potent pain relief while also offering balanced effects.

Hybrid strains can have both uplifting and relaxing effects, depending on their specific genetic ratio and cannabinoid profile. Sativa-dominant hybrids tend to act as uppers, providing an energizing, cerebral, and euphoric experience, while indica-dominant hybrids typically produce more sedative, relaxing, and physically calming effects, acting as downers. Balanced hybrids aim to offer a combination of effects from indica and sativa, allowing users to experience a well-rounded range of effects.

Sativa-dominant hybrid strains are known for their ability to provide a burst of energy and focus. Strains like Jack Herer, Sour Diesel, and Ghost Train Haze are popular choices for their uplifting, cerebral effects that can enhance productivity, creativity, and mental clarity. These hybrids can be particularly beneficial for those seeking an energizing and motivating experience without the intense physical sedation associated with indica strains.

Low doses of hybrid cannabis can ease anxiety and lower stress. Indica-dominant hybrids with their calming and relaxing properties can help alleviate anxiety and promote a sense of tranquility. Sativa-dominant hybrids with their uplifting and mood-enhancing effects can also help combat anxiety by promoting a positive mindset and reducing negative thought patterns. Strains like Blue Dream and Pineapple Express are great in alleviating anxiety while maintaining a balanced, nuanced experience.

Hybrid cannabis strains are popular because they combine the desirable characteristics of both sativa and indica varieties, offering a wider range of effects and catering to diverse preferences and needs. 

By selectively breeding sativa and indica genetics, cultivators can create strains with customized cannabinoid and terpene profiles, allowing for unique sensory experiences, flavor profiles, and therapeutic benefits. Hybrid strains often exhibit enhanced growing characteristics, such as increased yields, resistance to pests and diseases, and desirable physical traits.

Indica-dominant hybrid strains are often associated with stimulating appetite and inducing the "munchies" effect. The relaxing and sedative properties of indica genetics can increase feelings of hunger and cravings for food. 

Hybrid strains such as Purple Kush, Grape Candy, and Granddaddy Purple are known for their appetite-stimulating effects, making them popular choices for medical marijuana users seeking relief from appetite loss or wasting conditions.

Sativa strains and sativa-dominant hybrids are known for their ability to induce a euphoric, giggly, and uplifting mood. The energizing and cerebral effects of sativas can enhance mood and promote a sense of happiness and laughter. Jack Herer, Super Lemon Haze, and Ghost Train Haze are popular hybrid strains often praised for their potential to inspire creativity, social interaction, and general merriment.

At sufficient doses, hybrid strains can indeed produce a potent, intense high, depending on their specific THC content and potency levels. Bruce Banner, Gorilla Glue, and Grape Candy are known for their high THC concentrations and ability to induce powerful psychoactive effects. The intensity of the high can also vary based on individual tolerance, dosage, and the specific combination of cannabinoids and terpenes present in the hybrid strain. 

If you’re looking to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without the intense high, microdosing is the best answer. By consuming small, carefully dosed amounts, you can experience relief from anxiety and pain while staying clear-headed and functional.
