Understanding Cannabis Strains: Hybrids
After understanding the differences between sativa cannabis strains and indica cannabis strains, naturally, there are some plants which exhibit a balanced combination of effects due to lineage. All strains, except for landrace strains, are considered hybrid plants, but many may lean towards one dominant component as discussed in previous blogs. A balanced hybrid displays an equal amount of characteristics.
For many consumers, a well-balanced hybrid packs massive potential for creating the perfect blend of warm, body-relaxing effects with a mild cerebral effect. In essence, a 50/50 hybrid can help mitigate the adverse side effects of the two parent strains. Hybrid breeding can help calm some of the anxiety-causing traits of a sativa, while combating the powerfully sedative effects of an indica.
Hybrid cannabis strains can often equate to the “best of both worlds” for many patients and consumers. These strains provide potent body effects which can help relieve pain, inflammation, and a myriad of other physical symptoms. However, they can also provide mild, energizing effects to counter the sedation typically experienced by pain relieving strains which can make them beneficial for people looking to combat symptoms and stay mentally alert and focused.
Hybrid Strains at Autumn Brands
Hybrid strains are versatile and can provide a wide array of benefits and effects for the consumer. Talk to the knowledgeable staff at Autumn Brands about these hybrid strains to get the most out of your cannabis experience:
Chemdawg – Known for its distinct, diesel-like aroma. Pungent and sharp, you’ll be able to smell this hybrid from a mile away. Chemdawg has a powerfully spicy, plant-like taste and a fragrance containing a hint of diesel. An evident cerebral high drives creativity while a sleepy body high fights insomnia and relaxes the muscles. Best for anxiety and pain, this strain is also helpful with depression and ADHD, as well as migraines, arthritis, and PMS.
Cherry Vortex – A cross between the indica strain Cherry Pie and the sativa dominant Vortex gives this strain a delightful, berry flavor with balanced effects of its two parents.
Clementine – A sweet, citrus-flavored sativa hybrid with earthy undertones that combines Tangie with Lemon Skunk genetics. It’s ideal for treating conditions such as mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic fatigue, migraine or tension headaches, chronic stress, and nausea.
GG#4 – A potent hybrid strain that delivers heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation. Earthy with heavy diesel notes thanks to a cross of Chocolate Diesel with Sour Diesel. It can help with reducing chronic pain and it works well for sleeplessness. Some cases use it for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Rose OG – A more floral strain with a 50/50 hybrid effect provides a deeply relaxing body effect, with a mental clarity to help provide energy and focus for daytime use.
Strawberry Kush – Consumers not only love the taste of this flavorful strain, but Strawberry also provides ample relaxing body effects and energetic, mental focus without the paranoia-inducing effects typically associated with other sativa-leaning strains.
