Zedd is a strain with an alluring, yet mysterious history and lineage. Many questions arise in regards to the genetic make-up of Zedd. What are the origins of this strain? Where did it come from? What strains could be responsible for such sweet and cherished genetics? It is rumoured that an unknown breeder crossed together Hashplant and Northern Lights, two legendary indica strains within the cannabis community, to create this delightfully sweet and spicy strain. Although that is hearsay or mere speculation, we are certain that Zedd, regardless of its history, is a strain we will all continue to love for ages.
The status of Zedd has forever been cemented as a surprisingly potent, and flavourful hybrid strain. Held in extremely high regards, Zedd is known to possess tremendously high THC levels that cop off around 22%. After smoking Zedd, users will notice that it is a “creeper” high that slowly lingers, before completely enveloping smokers into a deep sense of serenity and pure bliss. Users will quickly find that any physical aches and ailments fade away as their mind delves into a state of happiness and bliss. The balanced high, coupled with an abnormal THC concentration, make Zedd very effective for the treatment of anxiety, chronic pain, depression and stress.
Physically, Zedd is characterized by its round and dense bud structure. This thick, lush green nugs contain the perfect amount of amber hairs that contrast beautifully with darker green, almost blue-ish leaves. The large surface area of these buds allows a plethora of individual, resinous THC trichomes to accumulate everywhere. The flavour and aroma of Zedd is slightly reminiscent of Sour Diesel, with pungent, earthy, piney and citrusy notes.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Bill Clinton once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
