About Banana Pudding
Banana Pudding is a flavorful hybrid bred from the infamous Girl Scout Cookies and Banana OG strains, Indica-dominant (70/30), and perfect for banana-lovers. It was originally grown by Dying Breed Seeds out of Mendocino in California The flavor is sweet, creamy, tinged with vanilla, nuts, and fruit, and has a scent to match. The high is a result of a brain-breaking THC average that exceeds 30% and comes with a myriad of physical and mental effects. Most people who try the strain are at a loss for words.

The strain grows in frosty green nugs, dark and forest-y and small, with thin but vibrant orange pistils and tiny crystals that are sparkly and white. Its major terpenes include Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Linalool, which conspire together on Banana Pudding’s flavor. The result is a lot like its namesake, with tones of sweet sugar, vanilla, cream, and bananas. However, the other terpenes, Caryophyllene in particular, really start to come out on the exhale with a flavor of spicy earth, herbs, and nuts. The main thing to realize is that Banana Pudding is delicious – it’s built its entire reputation on being so.
However, its effects are more far-reaching than just the Zen satisfaction of tasting something creamy-delicious (and packed with bananas). The strain provides a feeling of mental ease and calm, which stimulates your brain for creative tasks, so long as they’re relaxing enough. Users report ideal pastimes on Banana Pudding as being things like knitting, drawing, painting, doing puzzles, improving their yoga routines, getting intimate with their lovers, hanging out with friends, and even catching up on some sleep. Not too many users report feeling energized or active, but depending on your experience level, the sheer amount of THC (in excess of 30% in some cases) can affect you differently.
With banana on your breath (and calmness in your heart), the effects of this strain can help you work through your depression or a bad migraine. Since the strain increases appetite, you may be able to regulate your eating schedule on Banana Pudding, especially if stress is one of the things that prevents you from eating. As with any cannabis, dosage is important and effects will vary, but many use Banana Pudding’s ridiculously high — high to give themselves an empowering boost of ease and creative ambition. This doesn’t mean the strain is for everyone, but experienced users (and banana fans) should definitely look it up.
