Hybrid strains offer the best of both worlds. Many of the strains you’ll come across are hybrids, a crossbreeding of both sativa and indica strain or strains. In fact, because of how much cannabis has been bred, most strains you find will typically be a hybrid variety.

Hybrids often take on qualities of both strains, eliciting more of a balance rather than a straight body or head high. As mentioned, you’ll often find hybrid strains described as “sativa-dominant” or “indica-dominant.” This means that particular strain holds stronger characteristics of that type of weed. A sativa-dominant hybrid, for example, will offer more of an elevated cerebral high, while an indica-dominant hybrid will have more relaxing, sedative effects.
