About Banana Kush
Banana Kush is an Indica dominant strain that smells and tastes like the name suggests - a smooth blend of bananas and good Kush.
Providing a potent Indica body high, which starts with laziness leading to complete sedation, this strain is almost always prescribed and recommended for night time use. Many will find it hard to stay awake after 2-3 hits taken an hour or two before bed.
Banana Kush contains some of the cerebral effects of a Sativa, including mood elevation and a powerful feeling of euphoria. However, it also comes with common minor side effects such as dry mouth and eyes, occasional dizziness, paranoia and headaches.
As mentioned above, this strain should be relegated to evening or night time use. It is highly prescribed to people fighting sleep deprivation and insomnia. Banana Kush is often sought out by patients suffering from chronic aches and pains. Others use it for relief from stress and anxiety. To a lesser degree, it may help patients suffering from migraines, glaucoma, nausea, eating disorders and muscle spasms.
Banana Kush is bred by Cali Kush. It is a cross between the widely known OG Kush mother and a Banana father. The result is a delicious strain that is 60% Indica with an 18-20% THC concentration. It is not recommended for amateur growers because it can require a great deal of attention. Banana Kush can be grown indoors or out. Having a lower yield than other strains, it flowers at about eight to nine weeks. Outside, the strain can reach up to 16 feet in height but will mature better in the controlled environment of an indoor grow.
Banana Kush has been one of my go to's for years when I first tried it from Swell Farmacy in Phoenix. It does smell and taste slightly like bananas which is appreciated. Some of these growers name the strain after a flavor and it won't taste like it. The combination of Ghost OG & Skunk Haze is so great I wish I could have it permanently in my medicine box. I'm a huge fan of Skunk genetics. The effects of this strain come on as a creeper high and if you aren't careful you may be more high than you were wanting. I feel strong euphoria rush over my body while pain and anxiety melt away. When I use this strain if I do too much it'll actually make me sleepy. It's a good any time of day medicine!
I absolutly love this strain. Picked it up in a concentrate after requesting something to help with nausea and lack of appetite. Within 20 minutes I was in a full on munchdown. I was able to eat a whole meal for the first time in weeks! Also a verry mellow high. 10/10 would recommend.
just wow ! the smell the smoke the buzz. everything is perfect ! relax and sleepy buzz but can chill with friends and being creative. great time with that one.
Banana Kush definitely makes me super sleepy and tired! And it is my favorite tasting and smelling weed! But I am not in love with the effects.
