What does "Hybrid" mean?

Definition: Hybrid strains of weed refer to those in between the two ends of the cannibis spectrum — the subspecies cannibis indica and cannibis sativa. Cannibis indica provides a mellower high compared to cannibis sativa, which provides a high described as "having no ceiling". Sativas have higher THC levels compared to indicas, yet indicas have a more powerful effect as medical marijuana. Hybrid varieties, then, combine these two extremes into a "super" strains that combine the strongest aspects of both varieties.

Example usage for Hybrid

"This hybrid has a slightly higher sativa effect than the indica, but you can definitely still feel the indica in the strain a little later."
