Instead, most Marijuana Strains are now indica dominant, sativa dominant or hybrid. As expected, different plant genetics may lead to different medicinal effects.

Hybrid Cannabis Plants
A hybrid is a Marijuana plant that is a crossbreed between an indica and a sativa plant. There are also hybrid strains that are a relatively even indica/sativa split. The unique properties of hybrid strains allows patients to experience even more personalized and effective treatment.
Hybrid Marijuana Plants = Indica and Sativa Marijuana
Cannabis strains range from pure sativas to pure indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both indica and sativa(30% indica – 70% sativa, 50% – 50% combinations, 80% indica – 20% sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
