Overview of Banana Kush

This award-winning strain is a consumer favorite in many legal cannabis markets. High profile accolades include the best indica trophy and third place in the best hybrid category in the 2011 Cannabis Cup. Banana Kush often also has impressive THC percentages within the 20th percentile. Its high THC content can even be as high as 27% THC.

Banana Kush is a hybrid that is slightly more indica-dominant and revered for its relaxing and sedative properties. However, this strain is still known for a mild sativa effect at the beginning of the high. Banana Kush is commonly said to inspire creativity and intensify feelings of happiness.

Potential Positive Effects of Banana Kush

Banana Kush embraces the idle indica properties of its parents and is for evening or nighttime use. The strain's buzzing mental stone also hints at its slight sativa lineage. Generally, Banana Kush leans 60% to the indica side. Commonly, the strain can make a user feel relaxed, euphoric, fatigued, and uplifted.

Banana Kush is also an incredible strain for easing your stomach after a big meal, recovering from a workout, getting some shut-eye, or even gaming out!

Potential Benefits of Banana Kush

Medical patients utilize Banana Kush to treat the physical and mental side effects of stress, depression, general pain, a lacking appetite, and insomnia. The strain's heavy stone is favored by those dealing with chronic pain issues and arthritis. Banana Kush can also help relieve the symptoms of glaucoma, nausea, muscle spasms, migraines, and even eating disorders.

Potential Negative Effects of Banana Kush

Negative symptoms are few but can encompass dry eyes, dry mouth, extreme fatigue, and dizziness. If you over-consume Banana Kush during the day, you might end up binge watching some Netflix!

Lineage of Banana Kush

Different cannabis resources attribute Banana Kush's genetic origin to various sources. Popular Colorado dispensaries that produce the strain include Mile High Green Cross Dispensary and Highland Health Dispensary. International growers like Amnesia Seeds also offer feminized versions of the seeds.

Cali Kush also stakes its claim on the strain. Banana Kush is either a cross between OG Kush and Banana or Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. OG Kush fosters the strain's sedative high with more massive side effects.

Conversely, Ghost OG and Skunk Haze foster similar qualities.

Growing Banana Kush

Banana Kush is considered a moderately challenging strain to grow. Banana Kush plants don't often exceed 2 meters in height or yields more than 99 grams per square meter. Amnesia Seed's version claims to have much higher yields between 450 and 700 grams. Banana Kush plants can be relatively high maintenance and require extra attention during the growing process. It takes the strain between nine and ten weeks to flower.
