About Bruce Banner
History & Genetics
Bruce Banner takes it's namesake from the alter-ego of comic book superhero the Hulk and it receives this name with good reason as it is quite a powerful strain. Jason Holck of Dark Horse Genetics (aka OG Ironlung) bred Bruce Banner by cross breeding Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush, which is made evident with it's pleasant, slightly sweet diesel scent.
Bruce Banner actually comes in three specific variants, with Bruce Banner #3 being the most coveted of the three. Initially, 5 Bruce Banner strains existed, Bruce Banner #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. Bruce Banner #2 and #4 were both quickly drop, with #1, #3, and #5 taking precedence. Bruce Banner #3 ranked first place in the Denver US Cannabis Cup, and is the most potent strain ever tested in the history of the High Times Cannabis Cups. Bruce Banner received a great amount of hype in 2009, right as medical cannabis started receiving a better reception in the mainstream.
Bruce Banner has more going for it than a clever name and high THC content, however. This 60% sativa dominant hybrid strain packs quite a punch with a great balance between the sativa and indica effects. The buds are dense, rich in THC content. The Bruce Banner #3 variant is known to reach nearly 30% in THC content!

Bruce Banner tends to offer bigger yields than your typical OG Kush, making it a great strain choice for more experienced growers looking for an exotic strain which boasts bountiful yields.
Really flavor rich. I'm recovering from an injury and I vote in agreement with its well known pain relieving benefits.
I'm a sativa girl but I love this strain. I was finally able to find a strain that is a perfect balance. I was able to go home after a rough day at work and hit the vape and relax without feeling sedated. No pain and a peace a mind.
I have had my share of different strains, and I’ve never written a review, before now. This one is a perfect mix of sativa/indica. No couch lock, yet relaxed. Nice strain to start a day chilled. Not one to use though, if you want to exercise. I have bipolar type 1. (Extremely rapid cycle) this stuff really helps slow down the thoughts, without slowing them to much, to get stuck in a deep thought. I’m stocking up.
Excellent strain. Makes me happy I found a strain that actually works. Thanks!😎
This is definitely the most potent flower I have ever smoked, 40 years worth. For me it is an evening smoke. I get seriously Stoned with 1 hit. Normally hit other strains 3 times a session, and never get blitzed. Only issue I have with this strain is I have only been able to buy a small quantity 1 time. I WANT MORE!!
