What is a Hybrid Strain?
Crossbreeding between indica and sativa strains produces hybrid plants. These cannabis products take on a mixture of the properties of their parent plants, so they fall somewhere in between the spectrum of sativa and indica. The unique properties of hybrid strains allows patients to experience even more personalized and effective treatment.
