What are the effects of Strawberry Banana cannabis?
Strawberry Banana was brought about as a result of crossing Crockett’s Banana Kush and the strawberry phenotype of Bubble Gum from Serious Seeds. When fully grown, Strawberry Banana seeds produce plants that contain an indica-to-sativa ratio of 70:30 and a powerful THC content of 24-26%.
This indica-dominant hybrid, which is something of a creeper in its effects, starts off with a mild head buzz that increases into a wonderfully euphoric sensation. Its uplifting cerebral effects impart a happy high that heightens a user’s creativity along with their auditory and visual perceptions.
While all of this is happening, this hybrid strain’s indica effects slowly kick in as recreational users find themselves feeling more and more lulled into a state of blissful relaxation that tends to result in couch lock and a strong sleepy sensation.
Due to Strawberry Banana’s slow-burn effects of sedation and full-body tranquility, this powerful strain is best used in the evening when your only real plans include doing nothing and sleeping.
What are the therapeutic benefits of Strawberry Banana cannabis?
Thanks to Strawberry Banana’s uplifting yet calming effects as well as containing anecdotal pain-relieving properties, it has the potential to address various physical and mental health medical conditions.
This indica-dominant’s mood-boosting and euphoric effects are reported to help alleviate chronic stress, feelings of anxiety, depression, and symptoms related to PTSD.
In regards to physical ailments, Strawberry Banana weed has a reputation for providing medical marijuana patients with some much-needed relief from issues such as chronic pain, arthritis, appetite loss, Crohn’s disease, and, of course, insomnia.
What does Strawberry Banana taste and smell like?
Strawberry Banana’s dominant terpene profile consists of citrus-smelling D-Limonene, and its second strongest terpene profile consists of phellandrene, myrcene, valencene, caryophyllene, and α-Pinene. All of these combined give it what’s sometimes dubbed a “strawnana” (strawberry + banana) flavor and fragrance profile.
Its aroma is a delightful blend of earthy and sweet strawberry notes, which make it an abundantly fragrant strain.
In terms of its flavor, Strawberry Banana has a wonderfully unforgettable taste of strawberries and bananas, making it a mouthwatering treat for novice and seasoned users alike. Perhaps, the only “drawback” is that this indica tastes so darn good that it can be easy to accidentally overdo it due to its incredible fruity and tropical flavors.
How do I grow Strawberry Banana cannabis seeds?
As a strain that can be grown both indoors and out, Strawberry Banana seeds can be easily grown by prospective growers of all skill levels including first-time growers and novice growers. In addition, since Pacific Seed Bank only sells feminized marijuana seeds, the likelihood of ending up with all-female plants is around 90%.
Those who plan to grow Strawberry Banana outside, know that it requires a humid, Mediterranean-like climate where daytime temperatures hover in the 70-degree Fahrenheit range.
To bring out this indica’s beautiful hints of purple in its leaves, you’ll need to shock your plants near the end of their vegetative stage before they enter their flowering time by exposing them to cooler, but never freezing overnight temperatures.
Finally, it’s recommended that when it comes time to cure your buds hang them upside down for one week in an environment where humidity levels are around 50% and the temperature stays at a constant 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Afterward, you should then seal your cured nugs in airtight containers. The ideal condition for storing your cured buds is an environment where temps are 70 degrees and there are 60-65% humidity conditions that you can maintain.
What do Strawberry Banana cannabis plants look like?
Strawberry Banana weed plants usually grow to be about 6 feet in height and produce small to medium-sized nuggets that are quite dense in structure, which is a trait common to indicas.
This indica-dominant’s buds are bright, light green in color with a yellowish hue to them, and when properly shocked, are adorned with purplish accents. Their beautiful color scheme is further accented with vibrant orange pistils. In addition, Strawberry Banana is something of a trichome powerhouse as its nuggets are thickly caked over in large white crystal trichomes, which indicates its powerful THC content.
When to harvest your Strawberry Banana cannabis plant
If you are growing your Strawberry Banana plants indoors, they should enter their flowering stage in about 8-10 weeks providing growers with a hefty yield of about 535 grams per square meter.
Cultivated outside, this indica-heavy strain should produce a massive yield of around 650 grams per plant sometime around early to mid-October.
