Originally developed in California during the 1970s, this strain is rumored to have genetics that date back to the Afghani landrace variety. Its aromatic profile is very foresty and has lots of wood and pine notes. Humboldt is a hybrid that combines both indica and sativa effects, meaning its high generally starts in the head and trickles into the body. Users can expect such effects as mood boosts, relaxation in the mind and body, an ease of tension, a sense of transcendent bliss, and increased feelings of optimism and positivity.
Hybrid cannabis strains are mix of the indica and sativa plants. Hybrids often provide a more balanced combination of sativa and indica's effects. Hybrids are great for new users, who might not know how weed makes them feel. They can also be great for medical marijuana patients who need "balanced" effects they can tolerate all day long.
