ˈhī-brəd | Noun

A cannabis plant that’s bred to inherit the most favorable characteristics from its two parent plants. Hybrid strains can be a combination of any plant varieites and will typically depict phenotypes that are either sativa-dominant, indica-dominant, or equally balanced. Hybrids may also contain genetics from ruderalis varieties, a third variety of the cannabis plant that isn’t dependent on light exposure to start flowering, a process known as “auto-flowering.”

Blue Dream, a cross between the Blueberry and Haze strains, was his favorite hybrid.
