Marijuana Mash-Up: Sativa vs. Hybrid Strain

361

You finally decided to go try some marijuana as a way to relax instead of using alcohol. You shouldn’t feel weird about switching to cannabis either! A Gallup poll from 2019 found that about 12% of Americans use cannabis, and that number has remained steady since 2015.

So, you head down to the local dispensary and as you walk in the door, you see rows upon rows of different strains of flower and other products made with marijuana. Some products have a “Sativa” label while others say “Hybrid” or “Indica”. You realize that you have no idea where to start and what kind of pot you need!

Don’t worry, we can help you navigate the maze of marijuana! Keep reading to learn the difference between a Sativa strain and a hybrid strain of cannabis.

What is a Sativa strain anyway?

Marijuana strains that have Sativa properties often cause feelings of euphoria, creativity, and an energetic buzz. Many people think if this kind of strain as daytime cannabis or one to use when out in a social environment.

Sativas may not manage severe pain, lack of appetite, or help with sleep. So, if those are symptoms you’re looking to control, Sativa strains may not be the cannabis option for you.

Another important thing to be aware of is that some people who suffer from anxiety issues have reported that using strong Sativa strains of marijuana can trigger anxiety and panic attacks. Be cautious when trying a Sativa for the first time if you have issues with anxiety.

How about a Hybrid strain?

Hybrid marijuana has some Sativa qualities, but they also have some of the more sleepy effects of Indica strains. How much the strain leans to the Sativa or Indica side of the spectrum depends on the parent plants used to create it.

A good dispensary will tell you which way the hybrid cannabis strain leans. Be sure to know what you’re buying before you take it home and smoke it.

A bit of advice

While these are the typical effects people experience with Sativa and hybrid weed strains, everyone’s endocannabinoid system reacts in different ways to different strains. Some people might get more of an Indica-like feeling from Sativa strains and vice versa. 

That’s why it’s important to start low and go slow when trying a new kind of flower or other marijuana product. Take a small dose and wait a couple of hours to see how you feel and adjust from there until you discover the correct dose for your body.

Momma knows best… mother nature included!

Now that you know a little more about what a hybrid strain is versus a Sativa strain, you can feel more confident when you go to the dispensary. But, if you need more help, the budtenders can answer any questions you have.

Cannabis has many amazing benefits for the human body and it grows out of the ground like that! Why not try to use a natural product to help manage your stress, pain, lack of appetite, or other symptoms?
