Nutritional considerations : Using nutritional additives is discouraged at this stage of your cultivation journey. Rather than look to artificial sources of vitamins and minerals, ensure to get a good soil with the right PH level and also good seeds. The plant should perform well with these two and under the right conditions.
For many growers, the best of Indica and Sativa combines into a stable hybrid that is difficult to beat in terms of grow stability, yield and performance.
Photoperiod strains, that is, strains whose growth process is heavily lighting dependent, can suffer stress and a lost yield if there is a distortion in their light cycle.

Hybrid strains are primarily niche strains, they are not mainstream but can also find use recreationally or in medical cannabis.
They can be breed to offer a creative sativa-dominant high with a tint of the relaxing effect of Indica, and vice versa. Hybrid seeds are for growers looking to maximize the cannabinoid benefits and yield. They are ideal for both recreational uses and medicinal cannabis uses.
Hybrid Cannabis Seeds are curated seed strains that combine the cannabis Sativa strain and the Indica strain to produce a unique new strain that is a fine blend of both landrace strains. The hybrid maintains the unique characteristics of both strains but in the measure determined by the master breeder; there are Sativa-dominant hybrid strains and Indica-dominant strains. The effects produced by the hybrid strain are also parent dependent. That is, whatever mother strain used in developing the hybrid, it is most likely to adopt the same effects as its mother strains.
Those having trouble choosing the right seeds can also get in touch with a dedicated grower who can offer advice and recommendations. After choosing seeds, the rest is easy. Just get in touch with the seed bank to place the order. From there, the supplier will take care of all the rest.
Recreational users love highly potent hybrid strains bred for high THC levels. Medical patients can benefit from buds harvested from hybrid plants that offer both the analgesic effects associated with indicas and the energy of sativas. Growers can get seeds that are perfectly tailored to their environmental conditions or market requirements. It’s a win for everyone.

CBD OG Kush 1 to 15 Feminized
A deliciously fruity strain tailor-made for the medical marijuana community.
This perfectly blended hybrid is a favorite as it produces the stickiest dense buds. Plan for an average yield of 400-550 g/m2 indoors.
The benefits of this cannabis strain are crystal-clear: outstanding aroma and euphoric relaxation.
The process of breeding such hybrid seeds involves breeders carrying out selective breeding in a controlled environment; they pick the female plant and male pollen to produce a specific trait. Specific Cannabinoid Content is one of the main reasons for breeders opting for producing Indica / Sativa Hybrids. Research into the field of hybrid breeding has enabled breeders to maintain specific concentrations of cannabinoids, with strains either maximizing or minimizing the levels of THC and the amount of CBD. This has especially aided in medicinal cannabis production for children which contains high amounts of CBD but low levels of THC. In addition to this, maintaining resin content is another reason for the adoption of hybrid seed production. Hybrids are essentially cross bred for their resin content since some plants are more resinous than others. In this case, Sativa tends to be less resinous than Indica though a hybrid of the two can control the resin content depending upon whether the resultant is Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or a fifty-fifty split.
Furthermore, cannabis strains which are considered to be ‘hybrid’ can either be Indica dominant, Sativa dominant or a fifty-fifty split in accordance with the need of the user i.e. whether they are inclined towards the cerebral high of Sativa or the body relaxation properties of Indica. Needless to say, in recent years, the therapeutic properties of Cannabis have become prominent leading to a noticeable rise in demand for the product. This has further lead to the rise in experimentation with Cannabis strains resulting in the likes of Indica / Sativa Hybrid Seeds, which were essentially a man-made attempt at customising plants via cross breeding with specific kinds of characteristics usually found in Sativa, and Indica strains.
Indica, Sativa and Hybrid represent the three main categories of Cannabis which are predominantly known across the region with hybrid seeds providing users with benefits from both Indica and Sativa. One of the first known hybrid’s of an Indica and Sativa was known as ‘Skunk’ which was first bred by a group of cannabis growers based in California, USA, Sacred Seed Co., led by David Watson. The resulting strain was revolutionary, producing high yields in relatively short periods of time along with having the innate ability to withstand an array of climatic conditions hence enabling it to be grown indoors, outdoors, and in greenhouses. The latter has been especially helpful to growers since hybrids can be selected for their size, bushiness and other features, catering to specifically to the grower’s requirement.
Individually Indica and Sativa strains are known to provide certain therapeutic benefits; Indica is known to be an aid in alleviating insomnia along with providing pain relief whilst Sativa is known to be helpful for depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and even fatigue. Therefore, depending upon the dominant strain, individuals can incur the benefits of both Indica and Sativa via the hybrid strain; hybrids can be especially helpful when tailored to a user’s specific need.
