About Banana OG

Banana OG is an indica-leaning hybrid with an unusual aroma: when properly cured, flowers of this strain have the subtle scent and flavor of banana. Banana OG is a cross between perennial favorite OG Kush and Banana Kush, which itself is the product of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. These Kush, Haze, and Skunk genetics intermingle to yield a surprisingly sweet and mild smoke. Besides its standout taste, Banana OG offers a balanced, long-lasting high that’s enjoyable in a wide range of situations. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of this strain to have THC levels ranging from 16% to 25%.

Banana OG is distinguished by impressively large, chunky flowers that have a tapered, spade-like shape. The buds maintain a distinctly indica structure, dense and tightly-packed. Leaves are a pale green and play host to a profusion of rust-colored hairs (which are actually pistils intended to catch pollen from male plants). Banana OG’s flowers are also covered in amber-colored trichomes that give the leaves a slightly yellow tint.

A pleasant tropical odor bursts out of this strain’s flowers, presenting notes of banana with some faint citrus in the background. On closer inspection, there’s also a slight grassy smell hanging out underneath. Breaking open or grinding the buds gives off more of the dank, earthy scents typically associated with Kush varieties. When combusted, this strain can have a harsh and cough-inducing smoke. On the exhale, though, this smoke tastes tropical and is undercut by a hashy, incense-like flavor. Smokers should keep in mind that this is a particularly pungent strain; those looking to keep their consumption discreet should take any needed precautions.

Banana OG is known to be a creeper of a strain, often taking several minutes before its effects can be fully detected. When the high does arrive, it brings both barrels, acting on the user’s cognition and body all at once. Initial effects can be disorienting and include dizziness, euphoria, and mind race. The smoker’s thoughts may jump from one to the next as they’re simultaneously beset by the sudden desire to sit or lie down. With time, this early intensity tapers off into a holistic relaxation, with both mental and physical effects humming along at a pleasurable pace. Couch-lock is commonly reported, but so is deep, creative thinking -- just don’t expect to find the energy to stand up and speed through tasks or errands. Enjoy Banana OG at night or in the early evening. Smoke it in a joint or out of a freshly-cleaned pipe to savor its unique flavor.

Banana OG is also versatile for medical cannabis patients, providing relief from both psychological and physiological problems. It can ease aches and pains, whether they’re temporary or chronic and disease-related. Its uplifting, mood-altering effects can be helpful for mild to moderate cases of stress and depression, helping patients to spend their time more consciously and mindfully. In high enough doses, it can also counteract insomnia, lulling users into a deep and restful sleep. Banana OG may not be the best choice for those prone to panic or anxiety, as its early destabilizing effects can lead to paranoia.

Breeders Apothecary Genetics -- also responsible for the flavor-focused strains Grape Ape and Grape Royale -- have made seeds of Banana OG available for sale online. Once obtained, this strain can be successfully cultivated indoors or out, although outdoor growing requires a warm, semi-humid climate with daytime temperatures in the 70 degree Fahrenheit range. Growers should expect their plants to grow short and bushy, and should “top off” the crops by trimming any broad, light-blocking fan leaves that tend to grow at the tops of stalks. Banana OG flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and is ready for harvest in late September when grown outdoors. It offers growers only a modest yield for their efforts, at about 32 to 37 grams (or 1 to 1.3 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.

Banana OG is a great example of how flavor doesn’t always come at the expense of potency when it comes to cannabis breeding. This strain’s dynamic knockout effects make it a great choice for un kicking back and getting silly with close friends or lounging and unwinding at home before bed.

Nicole

It’s a pretty good strain. I got it in vape oil which has a THC content of 94%.....you’d think any kind of concentrate like that would have u BAKED OR SO HIGH YOU’d THINK The treees we’re talking to you , but UNFORTUNATELY this IS NOT THE CASE w “BANANA OG”. I’ve been medicating w Marijuana for 24 years & In my opinion, this strain is nothing to write home about.

Lupe Gozales

Heavy hitting Indica which has a flavor similar to bananas and fuel. A great strain for bedtime or just relaxing at home. It's a bit heavy on the body but the mind is left at ease unless you smoke a bit too much. All in all a GREAT strain and definitely one of my favorites if not the favorite.
