Black Banana Cookies
About Black Banana Cookies
Black Banana Cookies is a yummy, high-class combo between Banana Fire Cookies and Blackberry Kush. The strain leans towards Indica (65/35), with a light, fruity flavor, nothing too intense, and a mid-range THC average of 18.5%. However, not every strain needs to beat your brain to a pulp! For novice-intermediate users, the relaxing calm of Black Banana Cookies can be a potent cure for a long week of work, or a bad bout of arthritis.
The strain grows in huge nuggets of frosty lavender trichomes, vibrantly colored in dark purple buds, nearly black in appearance beneath the bright orange hairs. The nugs themselves are dense, long, and tapered, almost like dark green peppers. The plant itself grows tall and upright, flowering in an ultra-fast 56 days when grown inside. The strain has a robust growing structure, which includes not only dense foliage but also an abundance of crystal trichomes. Some growers have observed green phenotypes of Black Banana Cookies, though most settle on a darker, purple tone. Either way, its terpene profile creates a gassy, grape-like flavor (more on that in a bit).
GROWERS TIP: Black Banana Cookies’ dense growing structure flourishes in outdoor growing situations. When grown inside, be sure to use a pot large enough to accommodate it. If you use reflective walls and indoor lighting to maximize your strain’s light exposure, which encourages growth, keep in mind that Black Banana Cookies will grow denser on its tops than an average strain and may require pruning.
Once you’ve gotten your hands on its frosty, oversized nugs, Black Banana Cookies explodes in a flavor of berries, gas, tropical banana taste, and a hint of cookies. The combination of gassy earth, spicy grapes, and sweet fruit provides a sense of easy calm, with THC levels in the low 20s. The high will feel cerebral and then spread throughout your body, making you feel relaxed. The spicy terpenes relieve inflammation, making Black Banana Cookies a good strain for those who suffer from muscle spasms, arthritis, migraines, headaches, or other chronic pain conditions.
