5 of The Best Hybrid Cannabis Strains For Balanced Effects

Hybrid strains are well sought-after because they’re reliably balanced with a lot of variation in effects and flavor. Some hybrids increase energy while others give great body highs. The best part? A lot of them do a bit of both!

In our opinion, the best hybrid strains are:

  • Tahoe
  • Blue Dream
  • OG Kush
  • Sour Diesel
  • Girl Scout Cookies

Keep reading to find out why!

The 5 Best Hybrid Strains for Balanced Effects

1. Tahoe OG

Tahoe is a lesser-known strain but is considered to be one of the best. It has a well-rounded flavor with some bright floral notes, and it goes great with a cup of coffee.

Tahoe will leave you feeling inspired to tackle your day but chilled out enough that you’re not overwhelmed by the prospect. Its versatility is evident, as it can be a great daytime pick-me-up in lower doses and a relaxing, giggly nighttime companion in higher doses.

Tahoe has a high THC content, floating around the 20% mark. THC is the cannabinoid responsible for weed’s psychoactive properties, so keep that in mind to consume responsibly!

Try Tahoe OG while listening to some ballads for a beautiful time.

2. Blue Dream

Blue Dream is a favorite among many for a reason! If you look up “best hybrid strains,” it’s going to be on every list. If you haven’t tried Blue Dream, you’re seriously missing out!

This Sativa-dominant strain is perfect for art, journaling, dancing, and spending time with friends. It’s got the kick of a Sativa, but you’ll still get the body high that Indicas are so famous for.

Blue Dream tastes fruity, specifically like blueberries. It’s one of the most delicious strains you’ll ever taste. 

Try Blue Dream at sunrise for the start of a wonderful day.

3. OG Kush

It’s not unlikely that OG Kush is one of the strains you first started off with. We have to pay our respects to the OG’s!

OG Kush is one of the skunkiest strains out there. It’s known for its musky, gassy taste and aroma. It’s the perfect mix of relaxing and uplifting, providing a balanced high that anyone would love. OG Kush has maintained its popularity for over 30 years–and for very good reason. 

OG Kush is perfect for relaxing with some blankets and a comforting TV show or for a nice evening stroll. It takes the edge off without too overwhelming of a body high. Prepare to be sleepy and content as the worries of the day melt off of you.

Try OG Kush when you get home from work to unwind and transition into the evening.

4. Sour Diesel

Sour Diesel is exactly what it sounds like–a powerful, skunky, sour strain that knocks a punch.

Although it’s a hybrid, this strain will quickly turn you into the life of the party; it’s one of those strains that produce chatterboxes left and right. Be ready to want to get up and do something, whether you harness the power for cleaning, working out, or just having fun.

Sour Diesel is one of the classics, much like OG Kush, and is a favorite of countless smokers. You’d be hard-pressed to find a cannabis connoisseur who doesn’t sing Sour Diesel’s praises.

Try Sour Diesel when you need a pick-me-up!

5. Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies–aka GSC–will make the mundane funny and turn your frown upside down. It’s super high in THC–about 25%–so it’s important to consume it carefully! Its beloved fun qualities are greatly informed by the high THC content.

There’s no wonder that GSC is such a great strain. It was developed by breeding the iconic F1 Durban and OG Kush, which are two iconic legends. Expect euphoria and a body high; a great combo for a great time.

If you’re looking to have fun, this is the strain for you. Be ready to giggle, smile, and see things in a new light.

Try Girl Scout Cookies when you’re feeling down and want to turn your day around!

Final Thoughts

It’s easy to stick to what you know. When you learn that a strain works for you, great! Keep buying it.

But don’t be afraid to try new things or return to your old favorites. Hopefully, this guide has given you some direction and inspiration to help you find a strain specific to your goals.
