Best Hybrid Strains

Hybrid cannabis is a plant that has a combination of two or more types of cannabis. The two main variants of cannabis used are Sativa and Indica. Indica strains are known for their sedating properties, which are useful for people with chronic inflammations, insomnia and cancer patients.
