Hybrid Strain Information
Marijuana strains are either pure breeds or hybrid varieties of cannabis. Strains are developed to highlight specific combinations of properties of the plant to create a desired effect. This is especially helpful when a patient has a medical preference for certain cannabinoid content, such as low THC content or high CBD content.
Adding sativa to an indica strain will help decrease sedation and add mental clarity.
Adding indica to a sativa will decrease stimulation and can reduce anxiety.
The main advantage of hybrids is the ability to customize and to choose between a wide variety of strains for various effects on the body.
Sour Blueberry is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain created through crossing the classic Blueberry with an unknown strain.
Even with the lack of knowledge about its heritage, Sour Blueberry is sought after by users all over the country thanks to its insanely delicious flavor and clear-headed effects. Sour Blueberry has a flavor exactly like what you’d expect – sweet and sour blueberries! The aroma is very fresh and fruity as well with a sour citrus overtone accented by sweet berries and earth. Sour Blueberry has a high that’s just as addictive as the flavor, with clear uplifting effects that leave you aware and focused for hours on end. Thanks to these effects and its moderate 14% average THC level, Sour Bluebery is the perfect bud to treat seizures, neuropathy, spinal cord injuries, epilepsy, hypertension, and MS.
Maui (Maui Wowie/Maui Waui)
Since the 1960’s, “Maui Wowie” (or “Waui”) was known as an especially exotic and desirable strain to cannabis connoisseurs the world over. While it’s unclear if the original genetic line is still alive and kicking, there are certainly many strains from Maui that are similar and capture the same smooth, citrus-pine taste and the enjoyable mid-level Sativa effects that it became famous for. As far as the dispensary scene goes, it seems that Maui Wowie and “Maui” operate interchangeably for the most part, with some plain “Maui” being distinguished from the Wowie by a more Indica growth profile and effect (at times this is called Hawaiian Indica as well). Maui strains are heavily Sativa in growth pattern, but the effect is generally mellow and clear-headed.
Skywalker is a popular strain across the United States, a hybrid with an even 50:50 sativa/indica ratio. Its THC levels top off at about 15 percent, making this an average to below-average strain in terms of potency. But it makes up for that with its mellow body high and mental clarity, plus a pleasing aroma and flavor. It’s a cross of Blueberry and Mazar-I-Sharif, both famous strains in their own right. This is a good strain for insomnia, as well as anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, migraines, and PMS. It’s particularly effective at pain relief. Dry mouth and red eyes are likely, while other adverse are much more limited. The taste of this strain is pungent and sweet, with earthy tones.
This scrumptiously pineapple tasting strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid with 70/30 sativa/indica ratio. We love how it’s energetic high helps our creativity while allowing us to stay mentally focused. The Pineapple Kush strain can be used to treat anxiety, physical fatigue, inflammation, migraines, muscle spasms, nausea, and pain. The smell is earthy and sweet and the flavor is earthy with hints of chestnut and pineapple. The dense, leafy buds are dark green with brown hairs.
