About Lemon Bananas
Lemon Bananas is a flavor-engineered hybrid. This bud’s breeders and its genetic lineage are not well documented. Even so, Lemon Bananas is praised for its potent and slow-moving effects. Although extract producer Dabblicious has created a resin named Lemon Bananas, it’s not clear whether this concentrate is made from flowers of the Lemon Bananas strain.
Flowers of Lemon Bananas are distinguished by a small to medium size and a chunky, roughly spherical formation. They adhere in a compact, indica-typical structure, with small leaves that curl inward toward their central stems. The leaves themselves are a bright shade of spring green and are shot through with contrasting orange pistils. Cloudy, sticky trichomes finish off these solid buds.
Lemon Bananas’ name only hints at its complex flavor profile. On first inspection, cured flowers have a tangy citrus aroma. There may also be some fruity accents lurking underneath, more akin to tree fruits like apples than to bananas. Meanwhile, grinding up these dense flowers yields a spicy, hashy odor, perhaps suggesting landrace Afghani in this strain’s background. When it is combusted, Lemon Bananas burns with a smooth and easily inhaled smoke; on the exhale, this smoke tastes like lime and finished with a creamy, banana-like mouthfeel.
This strain may take effect some 10 to 15 minutes after it is ingested; some smokers may forget that they’ve even toked before the high settles in. Some early signs of its action include a flushing in the cheeks and an increased feeling of pressure around the eyes and temples. As these tics subside, consumers may feel somewhat woozy and might notice some strange changes in their sensory perception. Visual and auditory distortions may occur, including a flattening of the visual field of depth. Additionally, many describe a strange feeling of time passing more slowly than usual. These spacey properties contribute to a psychedelic mood that can be enhanced with some atmospheric music or a visually-engaging movie.
After about an hour (or sooner, if dosage is increased), Lemon Bananas’ high tends to manifest with more physically-focused effects. Smokers who may have been active or out and about may find themselves rushing home to stretch out on the closest comfortable surface. At this stage, productivity becomes difficult and consumers may prefer to kick-off a binge-watching session than to plow through a list of errands. As the high wears on, couchlock is certainly possible, as is sudden sleep for those who are sufficiently tired or relaxed. Because of its mostly sleepy, lazy vibes, Lemon Bananas is recommended for consumption during the evening -- or at least during the daytime on a day when you have nothing else to do.
Thanks to its sedative properties, Lemon Bananas can have some applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its easygoing mood can temporarily soothe the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Physical pain may also be relieved, whether it is temporary, as due to injury, or chronic, as due to serious conditions like lupus. Anti-inflammatory properties may address lesser discomforts like cramps or nausea. As noted above, the strain can even be an effective sleep aid, making it a viable treatment for insomnia. Because its high is not typically associated with recursive thinking or paranoia, Lemon Bananas may be a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Lemon Bananas do not seem to be available for purchase online. Instead, prospective home growers should obtain clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain that can be propagated as clones. Although there is little information available regarding specific guidelines for cultivation Lemon Bananas, we know that like many hybrids it can be grown indoors or outdoors in a hot and humid climate. Additionally, the strain’s indica-influenced flowers suggest that its plants grow short and bushy and that they have a short flowering time of between 8 to 9 weeks.
Lemon Bananas’ relaxing effects make it a great end-of-day treat whether you’re smoking alone or sharing with friends. Its unique flavor alone makes it worth sampling.
