Nutritional considerations : Using nutritional additives is discouraged at this stage of your cultivation journey. Rather than look to artificial sources of vitamins and minerals, ensure to get a good soil with the right PH level and also good seeds. The plant should perform well with these two and under the right conditions.

While Indica and Sativa strains are considered the landrace strains; the original seed genetics, the hybrid cannabis seed is a combination of both, providing users with benefits from both the Indica and Sativa strains.

Hybrid cannabis seeds combine the best of Indica and Sativa cannabis genetics to produce a powerful effect that is unrivalled. The seed strain, when gotten from reputable master breeders are a bundle of satisfaction for both cannabis users and growers. Users would find the hybrid cannabis seed strain an enjoyable adventure that combines the best creative and energetic vibe of Sativa with the blissful indulgence of a relaxing Indica.

However, with planting hybrids, there are a few conditions to consider if you desire a good yield.

For many growers, the best of Indica and Sativa combines into a stable hybrid that is difficult to beat in terms of grow stability, yield and performance.

Water PH levels should be between 6 and 7. Do not pour when watering rather use a small cup and spray evenly, slowly until the pot is fully wetted.

Put simply, hybrid marijuana seeds share genetics with two or more types of cannabis. That usually means a combination of indica and sativa, but technically, autoflowering strains are also hybrids. They combine genetic material from sativas, indicas, or both with cannabis ruderalis plants.

Indica-dominant hybrids have more in common with their indica parents. They usually create a more physical, relaxing high, but add some of the cerebral head high associated with sativas into the mix. Smokers should expect subtle euphoria and a lower level of couch lock than they would get with a traditional indica. Growers should expect growth patterns that resemble those of an indica with bushy, compact plants, and sparse internodes.

Furthermore, cannabis strains which are considered to be ‘hybrid’ can either be Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or a fifty-fifty split in accordance with the need of the user i.e. whether they are inclined towards the cerebral high of Sativa or the body relaxation properties of Indica. Needless to say, in recent years, the therapeutic properties of Cannabis have become prominent leading to a noticeable rise in demand for the product. This has further lead to the rise in experimentation with Cannabis strains resulting in the likes of Indica / Sativa Hybrid Seeds, which were essentially a man-made attempt at customising plants via cross breeding with specific kinds of characteristics usually found in Sativa, and Indica strains.

Indica, Sativa and Hybrid represent the three main categories of Cannabis which are predominantly known across the region with hybrid seeds providing users with benefits from both Indica and Sativa. One of the first known hybrid’s of an Indica and Sativa was known as ‘Skunk’ which was first bred by a group of cannabis growers based in California, USA, Sacred Seed Co., led by David Watson. The resulting strain was revolutionary, producing high yields in relatively short periods of time along with having the innate ability to withstand an array of climatic conditions hence enabling it to be grown indoors, outdoors, and in greenhouses. The latter has been especially helpful to growers since hybrids can be selected for their size, bushiness and other features, catering to specifically to the grower’s requirement.

Breeding

The process of breeding such hybrid seeds involves breeders carrying out selective breeding in a controlled environment; they pick the female plant and male pollen to produce a specific trait. Specific Cannabinoid Content is one of the main reasons for breeders opting for producing Indica / Sativa Hybrids. Research into the field of hybrid breeding has enabled breeders to maintain specific concentrations of cannabinoids, with strains either maximizing or minimizing the levels of THC and the amount of CBD. This has especially aided in medicinal cannabis production for children which contains high amounts of CBD but low levels of THC. In addition to this, maintaining resin content is another reason for the adoption of hybrid seed production. Hybrids are essentially cross bred for their resin content since some plants are more resinous than others. In this case, Sativa tends to be less resinous than Indica though a hybrid of the two can control the resin content depending upon whether the resultant is Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or a fifty-fifty split.

Individually Indica and Sativa strains are known to provide certain therapeutic benefits; Indica is known to be an aid in alleviating insomnia along with providing pain relief whilst Sativa is known to be helpful for depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and even fatigue. Therefore, depending upon the dominant strain, individuals can incur the benefits of both Indica and Sativa via the hybrid strain; hybrids can be especially helpful when tailored to a user’s specific need.
