Hybrids are a marijuana strains type that contain both indica and sativa genetics, allowing them to produce both types of effects. Hybrid weed strains are generally regarded by consumers as enjoyable and can be both energizing and relaxing, depending on specific strain lineage. Common types of hybrid strains are classified as being indica-dominant hybrid or sativa-dominant hybrid. Examples of popular hybrid strains include Blue Dream, GG4, Wedding Cake, and Runtz.

For medical and recreational marijuana consumers, many choices exist for relief and enjoyment, yet there are two primary strains of cannabis, indica and sativa. Indica is known more for its pain relief and relaxation properties, affecting the body more than the mind. Sativa is known for its cerebral and energizing properties, affecting the mind more than the body. For some, the need for properties from both strains is desired, such as pain relief without the drowsiness that comes with indica. To accommodate those that require the effects of both strains, there is a third strain called â€œhybridâ€.
Hybrid cannabis plants are made by cross-breeding two or more plants, such as sativa and indica plants, to make a hybrid. Hybrids are basically a combination of the positive characteristics of the different strains bred together
Hybrid strains can be broken down into three categories:
1. Sativa-dominant hybrids: provides physical and mental relief with a cerebral high and a relaxing body effect.
2. Indica-dominant hybrids: provides full-body relief with a relaxing, cerebral high.
3. Even hybrids (50/50): provides an even head and body high.
