What is Hybrid Cannabis?
Buy Hybrid Weed Strains Online Hybrid cannabis strains are plants that have the combined characteristics of Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica plants, depending on its genetic lineage. In fact, most cannabis today is a type of hybrid marked as either indica– or Sativa-dominant, rather than pure Indica or Sativa. This is because “landrace strains,” or original cannabis strains that maintain their native characteristics, are hard to come by in today’s cross-breeding, global market.Buy Hybrid Weed Strains Online
Today’s hybrid cannabis plants may be tall with bushier leaves, short with thin leaves, and have a variety of unique qualities that make it evident they are a more modern cultivar than a landrace strain.
How Is It Different From Indica or Sativa?
While we have been using Indica, Sativa, and hybrid classifications in the cannabis industry for a long time, we’ve come to realize that it’s actually not correct. This is because on a molecular level, indica and sativa are all part of the Cannabis sativa L. species. This means we cannot attribute any effects to indica or sativa, but rather, to the entourage effect that occurs with all strains of marijuana when they enter the human body. The entourage effect is the belief that cannabinoids (not just THC), terpenes, and flavonoids all work together to create a unique experience in each of us.
So what does this mean for hybrid marijuana? It means that it’s really not all that different from Indica or Sativa. It is a mix of two different strains and can have unique effects from person to person.

One thing to note: This flower has high THC content at around 25% so make sure to dose carefully.
Runtz aka Runtz OG: Cross Zkittlez and Gelato, and you get this fruity-sweet hybrid. Like Wedding Cake, this strain won Leafly Strain of the Year but in 2020. The buds are rich in resin and the actual flower comes in multiple shades that range from purple to lime green.
Pineapple Express: This hybrid is a good example of a Sativa-dominant strain. It was created by crossing Trainwreck with Hawaiian and became famous when a movie by the same name was released in 2008. Pineapple Express tastes citrusy sweet with pineapple undertones.
