The Modern Strain
Hybrid strains are the best of both worlds for many patients. Hybrid strains are a cross of two or more strains of cannabis, allowing the patient to get the desired effects of both Indica and Sativa strains in one Hybrid strain. For example, let’s say a patient has arthritis pain but needs to medicate before work each day. A Hybrid strain would allow him to reap the benefits of Indica’s pain relief without becoming too drowsy.
An Adaptable High
Hybrid effects all depend on the genetics of the parent plants. The effects can begin with the head high of Sativa strains and gradually provide a body high of Indica strains. The THC count on this strain type can very high and are mostly grown indoors for best yield and potency results.
The Difference in Dominance
Sativa-dominant Hybrids provide a relaxing feeling that allows patients to unwind both physically and mentally. They are known to have more of an uplifting effect on your brain and are therefore better suited for daytime use. Indica-dominant hybrids offer a more intense experience, making them ideal for pain relief and help falling asleep at night.
Chronic Pain Relief
For many chronic pain sufferers, cannabinoids — particularly THC and CBD — can be an effective, natural pain management solution. CBD is not a psychoactive compound like THC, but it is an active ingredient that can help reduce pain and inflammation.
