Hybrid is the term to define the cross between two genetically different strains. This cross between strains can be done purposefully or can happen randomly. When done purposefully the goal is to mix the preferred traits of each to make a more powerful strain. There are typically three types of hybrids. A sativa dominant hybrid is usually a heady high that pairs well with a relaxing body feeling. A indica dominant hybrid typically provides a strong body high which makes them ideal for moderate pain relief or relaxation and a good night sleep. A balanced hybrid (50/50) are typically a true balance of sativa and indica plants. These hybrids are ideal for those looking to balance mind and body highs. Hybrids are found in almost all dispensaries because of the many options they give consumers.
