Marijuana may just be a plant, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t complex. It’s one of the most complex and versatile plants in the world. There’s a reason that it has been cultivated for thousands of years.
There is so much that you can do with marijuana alone. Breeding different strains leads to a great deal of diversity. These differences have major impacts on the experience of consuming cannabis.
Hybrids are extremely popular, and there are many good reasons. Hybrids are usually well balanced. Here is a guide to the most popular hybrid strains.
If you haven’t tried OG Kush, you need to.
This strain almost always appears on the top of best weed strain lists.
Considering how great it is, that isn’t very surprising. OG Kush has also been around for a while. And you can find it just about anywhere.
OG Kush is extremely easy to grow. It does well in hot houses and in just about any climate. It’s an easy plant for beginners.
It’s an indica-dominant strain. The indica percentage is 75%, and the THC content usually hovers just below 20%.
That means it’s not too strong, but it has a pretty good kick.
Cherry Pie is a classic sweet hybrid.
It’s a heavy indica strain. When it comes to cannabis, there are two main families. These are known as indica and sativa.
Here is some useful information on the differences of indica vs sativa.
The main thing to know is that indica tends to have a higher THC content. THC is the portion of the cannabis plant that makes you high. So, the higher the THC content, the stronger the high.
For newcomers, a lower THC content is better. Look instead for a variety with a higher CBD content.
Cherry Pie is better for more experienced users. It’s 80% indica and has a THC content of 23%. It’s great if you want to really relax.
It takes its name from its sweet cherry flavor. If you’ve got a sweet tooth and want to relax before bed, treat yourself to this instead of a slice of real cherry pie. There’s no sugar in cannabis.
The smell is also more neutral and even a bit minty. It’s good if you don’t want your house to have that typical weed smell.
Unlike Cherry Pie, Bruce Banner is a Sativa dominant strain.
However, it’s 60% sativa and 40% indica. That means it’s pretty well balanced.
The indica strains it’s derived from are also quite strong. So, for a sativa dominant strain, it’s got a pretty high THC content.
The THC is usually at about 25%.
The sativa base will give you a nice energy kick, though. Bruce Banner is a very balanced, easy to consume hybrid. It’s known as a good party strain.
It’s also easy to find since it is fairly easy to grow.
As a 50/50 hybrid of indica and sativa, Gorilla Glue has it all.
It really has the best of both worlds. It’s got a pretty high THC content of 26%. But the THC doesn’t hit you in the same way as in other varieties.
Gorilla Glue is a more energizing, upbeat strain. It’s also good for parties.
To really get your party going, add some good music to the mix. Here’s a list of the best party songs. You will want to listen to fun music during your high.
Gorilla Glue has won many competitions and is a worldwide favorite.
Skip the actual wedding cake and have some fun.
Wedding Cake is also known as Pink Cookies or Triangle Mints #23. As all these names suggest, it’s got a good flavor.
This is another indica variant with a high THC level. It’s 60% indica and has a THC level of about 26%.
It is probably the most relaxing strain on this list. Medical patients report that it is extremely effective in pain relief. So, if you’re looking to relax after a long day or take off some stress, choose Wedding Cake.
It would be impossible to list all the hybrids in the world. And as breeders continue to experiment, that list will only grow.
