In growing Cannabis, hybrid refers to the cannabis plant with both Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa characteristics. This crossing of two cannabis plant types gives hybrids a unique and powerful marijuana experience.
Indica-dominant hybrids and sativa-dominant hybrids are the two most common forms of hybrid strains. GG4, Wedding Cake, and Runtz are examples of popular hybrid strains today.
It takes a lot of time and endeavors to develop new hybrid cannabis strains. It is never as simple as simply breeding a new strain because the outcomes will fluctuate until they stabilize. This situation entails inbreeding or “back-crossing” the hybrid strain for generations until attaining a consistent and targeted trait.
