About Chiquita Banana

Chiquita Banana is a fruity, well-balanced hybrid that boasts some prestigious genetics. This strain is a cross between tasty Banana OG and old standy hybrid OG Kush and carries that full-bodied potency and flavor of both parent strains. Named after the ubiquitous distribution of tropically-grown bananas, Chiquita Banana is the creation of California-based Utopia Farms. Its THC content has been measured at near-record high levels of between 25% and 34%.

When properly trimmed, flowers of Chiquita Banana are small to medium in size and hold together in roughly spherical, popcorn-like shapes. These buds have a characteristically indica structure, with leaves curled densely inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are not unlike the flesh of a banana - a mix of pale yellow and bright spring green. While relatively few trichomes twist their way through these compact flowers, they are absolutely covered in cloudy white trichomes, accounting for the strain’s sky-high psychoactivity.

Chiquita Banana’s flowers give off a tropical sweetness, which, while not exactly banana, has some pleasant notes of citrus. On closer inspection, there’s also a sweet, slightly skunky funk. Grinding up these dense flowers gives off rich odors of hash and spice. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Chiquita Banana burns with a smooth and easily palatable smoke. This smoke leaves behind a musky orange scent on the exhale.

This buzzy strain hits the consumer very quickly, beginning with an increase in circulation to the temples and the cheeks. The head rush can also result in some dizziness for seated smokers who stand up too quickly after toking. Soon thereafter, users feel a marked increase in their capacity to think and pay attention. Thoughts may center on certain, otherwise uninteresting concepts, revealing new layers and associations. This kind of focus makes Chiquita Banana an ideal strain for accompanying analytical and work-related tasks. Chiquita Banana may also inspire bouts of creative brainstorming, freeing preoccupied minds from their usual inhibitions. As the high wears on or as dosage is increased, this strain begins to exert the body high that makes its Kush ancestry so popular. Consumers may feel a trickle of relaxation roll down their spine and radiate outward through their core and limbs. Any lingering muscular tension dissipates as deep breathing happens more freely and easily. It’s not unheard of for the suddenly relaxed user to melt into their immediate surroundings as the outside world recedes into the background. Luckily, Chiquita Banana’s mental acuity does not fade, even as its stoney effects set in. In its later stages, this bud is a great way to kick back and enjoy an atmospheric, engaging movie -- or simply to enjoy some introspective solo time. Chiquita Banana should be enjoyed between late afternoon and early evening, when its gradual decrease in energy levels can be fully savored.

Chiquita Banana’s versatile properties can have applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its lucid sense of focus may be an aid to those with attention deficit disorders. The strain’s mood-lifting properties can also temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety.. Physiologically speaking, this bud can be an analgesic for deep-seated aches and pains as well as temporary injuries and inflammations. Because it can be so unusually potent, Chiquita Banana is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia, or who have a low tolerance for THC.

Utopia Farms has not released seeds of Chiquita Banana for sale online. As such, prospective growers should obtain clippings of the strains from a reliable source in order to grow genetically identical “clones.” While there is little information available on specific best practices for cultivating this strain, we know that like many hybrids it can be grown indoors or outdoors in hot, humid climates. The strain’s sativa leanings also suggest tall plants that may need to be occasionally trimmed back in order to fit in limited indoor grow spaces. Its background also implies a long flowering time of at least 9 weeks.

On the merits of its THC content alone, Chiquita Banana is one strain worth seeking out. Its versatility makes it a great way to enhance daily life, whatever your agenda.

Chiquita Banana (AKA: C. Banana) by Good Flower is a Indica containing 24% THC. The buds are parakeet green with a few thin pale brown pistils & golden sandy trichomes. Fruity, citrus, tropical, & banana was the smell & taste. Potential effects are happiness, uplifting, energizing, then relaxation & sleepiness. Good Flower is grown by the California sun in greenhouses. Company got their name right as the bud is good not great. The buds don't look, smell, or taste the best (not bad mind you) but, they do get me high at a great price. I get a good bang for my buck with Good Flower. Stay Elevated!!

Mr. Bretmaster

The buzz is very strong. You start feeling the head band very quickly. Not a bad strain for daytime exept if you are a beginner smoke. Go easy with that one it is has advertised very potent. The taste is more on the OG side but you can taste "banana" in the background.
