What is the origin of Banana Kush?
Well, it depends on who you ask. Marijuana strains have variations even among specific strains. Ask different breeders and they will tell you that Banana Kush has different parents. Some will tell you that it is a hybrid of OG Kush and Banana, which, nomenclature-wise, makes a ton of sense. However, there are others who say that Banana Kush is born of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. Now, Ghost OG is what they call a phenotype of OG Kush, so it’s in the same ballpark. What we feel more confident in, though, is the fact Banana Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid. Since we know, at the very least, a Kush is in the mix, we can trust that indicas play a role in the parentage of this particular strain. The strains with “Kush” in their name trace their origin to the Hindu Kush mountains, a region whose climate is conducive to the growing of indicas, but not so much sativas.
What is the makeup of Banana Kush?
First of all, let us answer the obvious question. Yes, Banana Kush does indeed smell and taste like bananas. There is also a bit of the Kush scent in the mix. This is still a marijuana strain, after all. It won’t smell like a banana that you get off the tree, but it is sweet and fruity. As we said, this is also a hybrid that leans toward its indica parentage. Now, what about the THC content? THC is the psychoactive element of marijuana. When you get high, you can thank the THC. Now, within a marijuana strain, there is a bit of fluctuation on the THC front. We have seen Banana Kush strains range from 17 percent to 21 percent when it comes to THC. Now, anything over 20 percent THC is on the stronger side, which means that we would call Banana Kush a strain that pushes being strong. Fruity and strong? Banana Kush is definitely going to be up a lot of people’s alley.
What are the effects of smoking Banana Kush?
Indicas are relaxing strains. They chill you out and give you a body high. Sativas, meanwhile, are energizing and give you a heady high. As we have noted, Banana Kush is an indica-leaning hybrid. With Banana Kush, relaxation is the name of the game. You will be hit by the sedative effects of the indica. However, the sativa parentage plays a role as well. People often find themselves happy and euphoric even while being relaxed. Many people say they use Banana Kush for stress and anxiety. Now, owing to the indica, it’s best to make Banana Kush an evening slate. Not long after using it, you may find yourself having trouble staying awake. Of course, relaxing and decompressing is a big reasons for using marijuana. Banana Kush is right up that alley. You smoke a little, you enjoy the banana flavor, you get a little giddy, and then you relax until you are carried into a good night of sleep. What could be better than that?
How is it to grow Banana Kush?
Now, here is where we may have to pump the brakes, at least with newbies. It would not be ideal to make Banana Kush the first strain you grow from the seed. Banana Kush is not a strain for beginners. It takes a little bit of attention to cultivating properly. You can grow it indoors or outdoors, though we definitely recommend growing Banana Kush indoors if you have the space to do so. The strain traditionally does better when you grow it in a controlled, indoor environment.
