Hybrid Strain: What Is It?

As you can probably guess, a hybrid is the ‘best of both worlds’ in the sense that it offers both Sativa and Indica. They are a combination of two or more forms of cannabis, and they are designed to allow you to get the benefits of Indica and sativa in a single strain. Hybrid Weed Strains

For example, if you have chronic pain from arthritis but have to go to work, you could use a hybrid strain to alleviate the pain while still remaining alert. Hybrids are used to treat the same illnesses as Indica or Sativa strains.

What Medical Conditions Do Hybrid Strains Treat?

For all the controversy about marijuana, it is worth remembering that it has been used for medicinal purposes for at least 3,000 years, and possibly for longer. While the number of states where it is possible to buy medical marijuana is growing (33 states plus D.C at the last count), the FDA refuses to legalize it across the board due to a supposed lack of evidence supporting its medical benefits.

While there have been studies on marijuana’s medicinal value for decades, it is only in the last few years that relaxed legislation has allowed for a veritable explosion of research. A study by Atwal et al., published in Neuropharmacology in January 2019, found that THC helped boost the efficacy of traditional neuropathic pain medication. For the record, neuropathic pain is a common type of chronic pain that can severely reduce a person’s quality of life. Hybrid Weed Strains

The study involved providing mice (suffering from neuropathic pain) with a combination of gabapentin and THC. It turned out that the combination reduced pain more than what was predicted from their individual effects; a suggestion that the two drugs may have combined synergistically.

A pair of studies, both published in 2018, were completed by researchers at the University of Mexico. One was published in Frontiers in Pharmacology, while the other was published in Medicines. Both studies discovered that medical marijuana provided immediate relief from a variety of medical symptoms with minimal side effects.
