What are Indica, Sativa & Hybrid Strains?

Why is knowing if your edibles are Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid important?

These labels are kind of like personality traits for your weed. Indica is like the cozy, stay-at-home friend, sativa is the adventurous, always-up-for-anything buddy, and hybrid is the perfect mix of both. Knowing these distinctions helps you pick the strain that matches your vibe and what you're looking to get out of your cannabis experience. It's like choosing the perfect playlist for your mood.

There are two main species of cannabis plants, cannabis sativa and cannabis indica.

Strains from sativa plants have a reputation for causing energizing effects, while strains from indica plants have a reputation for causing relaxing effects. We use a hybrid strain in our gummies: a cross between a sativa plant and an indica plant. That’s because we want our edibles to create a balanced effect—so that you can use them anytime, anywhere, as needed for your comfort. We believe everyone should have options so we crafted Go To Sleep + Uplift to match your mood. Overall, both distinct strains used in our products offer unique experiences with their distinct profiles, terpene profiles, and cannabinoid content. Whether you're looking to relax and unwind or boost your mood and creativity, these strains have something special to offer. As always, it's essential to start low and go slow when trying new strains to find the perfect match for your preferences and needs.

What if you could blend the best of both worlds? That's where hybrid cannabis strains come in.

Here’s how you get a hybrid– You've got two plants: One's known for its chill, laid-back vibes, while the other brings a burst of creative energy.

A hybrid strain is the perfect mix of two different types of hemp plants, or different strains. These plants have their own distinct characteristics. Strains that fall into Indicas are known for their relaxing, mellow effects, ideal for unwinding after a hectic day. Sativa dominant strains, on the flip side, are more uplifting and energizing, great for sparking creativity or powering through a busy schedule.

When you crossbreed these two types together, you get a hybrid strain that combines the best qualities of each. Think of it as a strain that starts with a euphoric buzz, then gradually eases you into a state of calm relaxation. Or maybe it's a strain that gives you a boost of motivation and focus, followed by a gentle sense of tranquility as the day winds down.

Hybrids can lean more towards being indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, or balanced, depending on which parent plant's traits shine through the most. Whether you're seeking something to help you unwind in the evening or to fuel your creativity during the day, there's likely a hybrid strain out there that suits your vibe perfectly.

Our UPLIFT products use a sativa dominant hybrid strain to give you that blissful buzzed feeling. Our SLEEP products are formulated with Indica dominant hybrid strain to get you into that relaxed, sleepy zone.
