Cannabis strains considered to be 'hybrid' can be indica dominant, sativa dominant, or a split between the two. In recent years, a growing interest in the therapeutic properties of cannabis has led to a noticeable rise in demand for hybrids. Purely sativa or indica strains still exist, but the market is now dominated by hybrids. This has resulted in a massive increase in genetic experimentation.
The prevalence of cannabinoids and terpenes in a hybrid strain determines its effects. This means breeders can better control for these when developing new hybrid strains. If they’re trying to develop an energetic and focused feel, a sativa-dominant strain with a lower THC content is the go-to. Or, if a couch-lock, the more relaxing stone is needed, an indica-dominant with higher levels of THC is bred.
There is no end to the experimentation, and every day, breeders across the world are developing new strains to suit all kinds of consumers.
Depending upon the dominant cannabinoid, individuals can reap the benefits of both indica and sativa via a hybrid strain. Use the filter on the left-hand side to sort the seeds by what you want out of a strain, and you’ll soon find what you need.
