A hybrid occurs when you crossbreed a sativa with an indica. Nowadays, hybrids are bred with other hybrids. This has lead to some outrageously strong man-made marijuana varieties. Products like the 51.2% THC Kurupts Moonrock wouldn’t exist today without crossbreeding sativa and indica varieties.
Because hybrids are so diverse, it’s best to use a strain-finding tool like Leafly to look up the specific psychoactive effects of each individual hybrid strain.
There are a wide range of cannabis strains in between Indica and Sativa. These strains are known as “Hybrids” and show traits directly related to the genetics in its lineage. Hybrids can be broken down into three basic categories:
- Sativa-dominant Hybrids
- Indica-dominant Hybrids
- 50/50 Hybrids
