Everything You Need to Know About The Banana Strain

banner everything banana strain

Bananas are a tasty fruit, and also a convenient one. Have you ever tried to travel with an apple? That thing is getting dented up. Oranges have a thick rind, but they are also a mess. Bananas, though, have a robust but convenient peel. Also, they are loaded with vitamins. Oh, and did you know the reason why “banana” flavored things don’t taste like bananas you get from the store is that their flavor is based on an extinct type of banana? It’s true! You might say that the “strain” of banana is gone, which is a clumsy segue to talking about the Banana strain of marijuana.

Now, the plant doesn’t have anything to do with actual bananas. It takes its name from the fruit, but it’s another cannabis strain, one of many. However, if you like bananas, and you like marijuana, you might enjoy the Banana strain, also known as Banana OG. In the Growers Choice Seeds online catalog, we have it listed as Banana OG, so that is how we will be talking about it from here on out. What’s the story with Banana OG? Is this strain the right one for you? It’s time to unpeel our facts about Banana OG to see if this is the cannabis strain you will want to be growing for your personal use.

What are the traits of the Banana strain?

Within the world of cannabis, there are three common types of strains. Those are sativas, indicas, and hybrids. Banana OG is a hybrid, but it’s indica dominant. The strain is 70 percent indica and 30 percent sativa. It’s also potent in terms of THC, which is the chemical compound that makes marijuana psychoactive. The plant usually comes in at around 23 percent THC, but some plants can be as high as 27 percent, which is really powerful as far as cannabis goes. Now, there are a lot of fruity, sweet strains out there, and with a name like Banana OG, you might be imagining a strain that is along those lines. However, Banana OG isn’t super fruity and over the top of the sweet side of things. In fact, you may not have imagined ever hearing the words “skunky but sweet” to describe something, but here we are. Now, the flavor may tilt more toward the sweet, tropical side, but the scent of Banana OG is decidedly skunky. Some have even described it as bananas gone bad, which may sound weird. That being said, there is an underlying sweetness to the aroma. Hey, if people can eat durian, they can enjoy Banana OG strains. It’s distinct, and perhaps polarizing, but not entirely unpleasant.

How does the Banana strain make me feel?

Here we get back to sativas and indicas. Indicas are relaxing strains. You feel them in your body and you get chilled out. Indicas ease tension but also can leave you lacking energy and perhaps even ready to doze off. Sativas, on the other hand, are energizing. They give you a “heady” high. Now, what happens with Banana OG, this particular indica-dominant hybrid? It tends to be relaxing, but in a way that also lifts your spirits. You get a lot of the relaxation associated with indicas, but with a bit of that euphoria that comes from sativas. It’s a great way to melt away the stress of your day. You can really ease into relaxation and chill-out mode. Now, the dominance of the indica, combined with the potency of the THC content, makes for a powerful high that also really drops your energy level. You do not want to use Banana OG when you need to be productive. It’s a strain that is synonymous with “couch lock,” the sensation of not feeling like you can really move, or rather you don’t want to move. If you are looking to chill out, though, Banana OG is right up your alley.

Are there medical uses for the Banana strain?

You can use Banana OG for your stress, but there are uses for the strain that go beyond simple relaxation. Things can be more serious in terms of your health and wellness, and that’s when the medical properties of some strains are perfect for you. As a high-THC, indica-dominant strain, Banana OG has been cited by some users as providing them relief from a variety of symptoms. While not everyone will necessarily receive the same benefits, there is anecdotal evidence that suggests this strain may be helpful in easing issues such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Cramps
  • Joint pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea

What is it like to grow the Banana strain?

A powerful strain with a tinge of sweetness to the aroma? Being able to relax and decompress after a stressful day? That all sounds great, right? Banana OG seems right up your alley. However, if you decide to grow your own plants for personal use, will Banana OG prove daunting? If you are a beginner, will you be in over your head if you try to grow your own Banana OG plants? Fortunately, indicas tend to be easy plants to grow, even for newbies. Banana OG is indica dominant, and it keeps those properties from its indica parentage. This is a strain that is rather easy to grow. The plant tends to flower quickly, usually after only six weeks or so. The buds are tightly packed, and you tend to get at least a moderate yield, even if you are a beginner grower. That makes Banana OG a smart choice for people who are new to growing their own marijuana for personal use. To make things even easier for you, Growers Choice provides fully-feminized seeds that are lab tested, hand-selected, and come with a germination guarantee. Bananas are loaded with potassium, while Banana OG is loaded with THC. It may not be as sweet as the fruit that gave the strain its name, but Banana OG is a worthwhile choice for anybody who wants blissful relaxation from their marijuana usage. Plus, it’s a lot easier to grow cannabis plants in your home than a banana tree.
