This hybrid was grown by Greenline out of Monterey, California to have evenly balanced genetics and an alluring flavor of bananas and diesel fuel. It was made as a cross between Banana OG and Animal Cookies and delivers a high that not only hits hard with sensations of relaxing, uplifting hunger but also lasts for hours. With a sizable 25% THC level, you should know that this strain may require a little experience to enjoy confidently, but you can continue reading to learn exactly what to expect from the tastes and tempting aromas of Bananimal.
The plant of the strain is like a vibrant, light-green Christmas tree with deeper forest-green leaves within. Those leaves are narrow and long, jutting out from plentiful orange pistils. The trichomes are numerous and sparkling white. The buds grow dense, like hard little grapes, with nodes of purple poking out in the frost.
The terpene profile of Bananimal is very diverse, including at least 8 different flavors to create a tempting cocktail of sensations. The most prominent are linalool, bisabolol, and terpineol. These supply a flavor profile that is both spicy and herbal as well as earthy and nutty, with a sweet undertone that comes out when you’ve been smoking for a while. The flavor can easily turn from fruity bananas to an almost cookie-like profile to a dose of spicy earth, especially on the exhale. The aroma is very pungent, fruity, gassy, and spicy.
The effects of this strain lean towards the uplifted, energizing, tingling spectrum. You’ll feel pulled up mentally and mood-boosted, ready to take on the world. Use Bananimal when you have time to be an animal, when you can be energetic and hungry and happy and giggly and tingly. It’s best to keep Bananimal use in the morning when its major mood-boosting properties can do the most good. However, your high may end in a feeling of sleepiness after hours of energy.
Being so powerful, Bananimal has many known side effects, particularly for less-experienced users. These include feelings of thirst, paranoia, fatigue, dry eyes, and even a little bummed out. This makes it worth it to take Bananimal slowly and gauge how it makes you feel before jumping all-in.
We recommend this strain for people who like an excessive, racey energy high or those who feel like they don’t eat enough and need a little help getting their appetite up. Bananimal can make your whole body feel looser, so it can be useful for stressed-out workers ready to enjoy their long weekend. Just take your time and you may be surprised by unleashing your inner Bananimal.
