New cannabis Seedfinder—find your match!

By Miguel Ordoñez


Certain cannabis lovers label themselves as indica or sativa purists—but there’s no reason to limit yourself! Thanks to legalization, a huge assortment of balanced cannabis hybrids are on the market.

Hybrids possess qualities of both indica and sativa, offering a unique cultivation experience, bud structure, and phytochemical composition. Expressing distinct aromas and effects courtesy of novel terpene and cannabinoid combinations, these crosses offer something pure sativas and indicas cannot.

Today, we’ll be exploring the top 10 hybrids displaying a 50/50 (or close to it) split of indica and sativa genetics. All displaying impressive speed, yields, flavours, and effects, there’s a hybrid strain for every weed grower out there.

Skunk XL

Many consider Skunk XL an all-time classic. Indeed, it has formed the genetic foundation for innumerable strains on the modern market. With Colombian, Mexican, and Afghan roots, this productive hybrid comes in at a perfect 50/50 balance of indica and sativa.

Skunk XL is a favourite among growers and smokers alike. In the garden, it spans from 1–1.5 metres in height, developing a bulbous main cola alongside smaller buds. A generous yielder indoors and out, Skunk XL didn’t earn her name for nothing. Indoors, expect up to 650g/m²; outdoors, 600g/plant can be achieved in ideal conditions. Oh, and it only takes 8–9 weeks of flowering to deliver her fruits.

Once ready to enjoy, prepare for a heavy stone powered by 17% THC, and a healthy dose of skunky, fruity flavours.
