If you are wondering how many different types of marijuana there are then you have come to the right place. There are basically four main categories of marijuana: Indicas, Sativas, hybrids and crossbreeding strains. Each category has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to growing and harvesting.
Indicas are the most popular of all marijuana strains. This is due to their reputation for producing large, thick, tightly curled buds that give out a powerful aroma. These buds are usually reserved for the indoor market and are known for their potency, even though some are higher than others. Indicas are considered to be a medium to high intensity drug, but they do have benefits that can be beneficial for your health. Most indica marijuana strains are known for their short, quicker and heavier growth period, although some are known for being a fast turnaround and able to be prepared in as little as eight weeks.
Sativa is a hybrid of Indicas and gives off a very similar yet different smell. Sativas are often considered as a high dose type of marijuana, especially since they do grow rapidly in seed form. The biggest advantage of Sativa strains is that they have the highest potential for becoming addicted to, which is why they are also more suitable for indoor cultivation. Most Sativa varieties originate from the Himalayas and the Indian Subcontinent, specifically the Hindu Kush mountain range in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and other parts of Central Asia.
Hybrid Marijuana, commonly called crossbred marijuana, is a combination of Indicas and Sativas. This is not actually a hybrid, but rather a cross between two separate plants that were taken from different areas of origin. Most hybrid marijuana strains are grown indoors under controlled conditions, but some are also bred outdoors to improve their yields.
Crossbreeding is a process where two or more strains of marijuana are crossed to create a new variety, often by taking the best characteristics of the parent strains and combining them with a different one. The most common example of this would be the hybrid cannabis hybrid known as the Skunk and Lemon Haze. Skunk has the highest THC concentration out of all marijuana strains, while Lemon Haze has the highest CBD, which is said to have similar medicinal properties to marijuana, but without the psychoactive side effects. Another common example of crossbreeding marijuana is the Skywalker with Lemon Sicily and the Skywalker with Purple Urtica. Both of these are known for producing a very potent high that is also a highly addictive.
These are just some of the different types of crossbreeding marijuana that can be done. Some people like the idea of crossbreeding strains because they believe that it increases the potency of the cannabis plant, while others prefer the idea of crossing a certain plant to another. In either case, there are pros and cons associated with every type of crossbred marijuana and most people enjoy them for their varying qualities and properties.
Marijuana can be grown almost anywhere in the world, however there are a few things that need to be kept in mind when trying to grow marijuana in your own garden. First of all, you need to ensure that you use the correct type of pot. Many indoor grown marijuana requires specific conditions to keep the plants healthy and safe for indoor cultivation and in most cases indoor plants need to have proper soil and light.
Marijuana seeds can take anywhere from one to three years before the plants mature, however, some marijuana can take even longer. It is important to keep in mind that the seed will be growing inside the plant for most of its life and should it not develop properly or reach maturity, there is no guarantee that the plant will continue to grow and bear fruit. If you are interested in trying to grow marijuana, make sure to consult an expert before growing your first batch of marijuana.
