Banana Kush weed review

  Origins, Genetics, History

Banana Kush Type: Banana Kush is a hybrid of the following strains:

  • Ghost OG
  • Skunk Haze

When breeders crossed Ghost OG and Skunk Haze, they did not intend to get a wimpy weed. They knew the offspring was gonna be a monster weed and it is. Banana Kush can have THC levels as high as 27 percent. Not your grandma’s weed, unless she has glaucoma or any of a number of chronic pain conditions, then it’s definitely your grandma’s weed. The toke from Banana Kush smells like bananas and Kush, and just how does it taste?

Appearance and Smell

Well, banana is a smooth, mellow, relaxing taste. Kush is earthy, strong, skunk, and funk. You will know that weed comes from the earth, not from some lab, made by bacteria with Frankenstein genes injected into it. This is all natural Kush from the Hindu Kush mountains originally, but transplanted to California and bred in one of the great weather hotspots of the world.

Do you see the picture?  This is a wild weed. It looks like a giant octopus with those long arms, plastered in THC rich, shiny white trichomes. Can you handle this weed is the question?  This particular plant appears in light green leaves, dense buds, with psychedelic orange pistils all over the place. That means this is a strong, feral, and virile plant. It won’t mind you consuming its sticky buds because we plant the seeds all over the world, and the species survives by the grace of the human beings who love to smoke it.

How to Grow Banana Kush Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Banana Kush cannabis seeds is of medium difficulty. It will thrive most easily in the warm California sun, so choose a similar environment or indoor set-up. If you grow under different conditions, you will get a different profile of cannabinoids and terpenes, even of color. The slight cold will bring out the purple but too much cold will surely kill your plant or at least make it not so tasty.

Grown indoors, you’re looking at about nine weeks till flowering time. You can expect about 18 ounces of banana-flavored, highly valued weed per square meter.

Outdoors in the California sun is the way to go. You will get 21 ounces from each plant. You can reap your bountiful harvest early in the month of October.

Medicinal Marijuana Review

Banana Kush balances power and effectiveness. Although it is no lightweight weed, it has a nice calming effect on the nerves. This makes it great for those with mood issues such as anxiety and depression. It can lift the mood as well as provide an anti-inflammatory effect. Studies are showing that people with depression have inflammation going on in the brain. The old days when we thought such people are just sad is over, the era of biohacking has arrived. If your brain is depressed, you have to hack it to remove and attenuate the inflammation going on in the brain. One way to do this is with a smooth, mellow weed called Banana Kush. It’s not too harsh on the throat, and of course, the flavor is delicious. When you smell delicious flavor, automatically your mood lifts. It is aromatherapy even before you smoke it. When you do smoke it, you won’t get the painful kush toke to choke with this weed, it’s much smoother, much more relaxing.

Now you can also use it for chronic pain in conditions like Crohn’s disease and shingles as well. People with Crohn’s sometimes get an acute, sharp pain in the guts. Banana Kush has the ability to relieve acute pains and also to alleviate chronic pain by providing an anti-inflammatory effect throughout the entire body.

Banana Kush is used in insomnia and to stimulate appetite in conditions like anorexia nervosa. Banana Kush is definitely also a weed to keep on hand for everyday stress. It can give you a boost in the short term and the long term.

The goddess of Fortune descended from the sky to show me the way to the dispensary and point at this very strain. Do I have to tell you how much I'm in love with it now? Everything started from it's amazing appearance and heavenly intense smell. Have you ever wanted to faceplant yourself into something and inhale it for hours, regretting the seconds when you need to exhale? Well this is an almost accurate description of its smell and taste is pretty much the same. Every time is like having a full mouth of bananas what makes you hazed out a bit. It hits you just to the right point and its indica side is perfect for treating spasms, insomnia, pain, depression nausea. It also helps greatly with eating disorders and stress. All of my patients who already tried this strain loved it for these medicinal benefits. I'm not an exception!

I've been smoking daily for the last six months and I remember how I went to the dispensary for the first time in my life and bought some of this beautiful creature along with Sour D. They gave me my first medical marijuana experience. As long as I was a complete newbie, I was told that this was a total old school bud and now I know why. My tolerance level (that I built up during these six months) was knocked on its ass after me packing a bowl and taking three nice hits. It's a creeper though and it takes around 5-10 before making you all zoned out. I was totally gone from such small amount of this lime-green nice-smelling bud and I mean it. The feeling really reminds me of being on a mild acid trip. You really shouldn't lie down, it surely means you'll get asleep. But this position also took all my back pain away. Besides this, it made me smile and see and hear things in another way. I also became noticeably more sociable and talkative. This long-lasting, very euphoric high is HIGHLY recommended to any stressed out person who's reading this and also for those having troubles with appetite. Light munchies, nothing severe but still making you go find some food.
