The Cannabis genus of flowering plants originated in Asia. Its native habitat extended from central to east Asia and included part of upper South Asia. The cannabis plant is commonly called marijuana, but it’s also known as hemp when referring to varieties of the plant that are used to make rope or cloth or that are grown for their protein-rich edible seeds.
Hybrid weed is a mixture of Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica
Cannabis is commonly divided into indica, sativa, and hybrid weed types. However, botanists don’t actually agree on the number of species in the Cannabis genus. While many plant scientists recognized indica weed (Cannabis indica) and sativa weed (Cannabis sativa) as two separate species, others, including the US Department of Agriculture, see indica as a subspecies of sativa. Hybrid weed strains are a mixture of both indica and sativa so hybrid plants display physical traits from both types.
Benefits of hybrid weed
Since hybrid weed is a mix of sativa and indica, these strains can provide a pleasant mix of both the uplifting mind effects of sativa and the relaxing, pain-relieving body effects of indica. Just as there are very few pure indicas and very few pure sativas, it’s rare to find hybrid weed strains that are a perfect 50:50 mix. For example, the Blue Cheese strain of hybrid weed has a 20:80 sativa to indica ratio, making it indica dominant, while Cherry Bomb is sativa dominant. As for Cannatonic, this hybrid weed strain that’s high in CBD and low in THC is one of those rare 50:50 blends of sativa and indica.
Knowing the difference between indica, sativa, and hybrid weed types can help you achieve the effect you want to feel. Experienced smokers, for example, often use sativa dominant strains in the daytime and indica dominant strains at night to take advantage of the full spectrum of benefits that cannabis has to offer. Consuming hybrid weed strains means you get the best of both worlds.
