If fruity flavored strains are your thing, then Strawberry Banana is one you certainly don’t want to miss. This indica dominant hybrid was bred from Crockett’s Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum, and was created as a team effort between Serious Seeds and DNA Genetics.
What You Should Expect
This hybrid is 70% indica and 30% sativa in genetics, yet the effects are generally well-balanced compared to most indica dominant hybrids. The look of the strain is very indica with small, compact, almost popcorn-like buds that are usually dark green, with wiry orange hairs throughout and a generous coating of nearly clear crystal frost. As soon as you open a jar or bag of this particular strain your nostrils will be filled with the sweet and pungent aroma of strawberries, with just a hint of banana and earthy undertones. The flavor is much the same, starting out somewhat harsh and very strawberry in nature but with more of a banana aftertaste.
The effects of this strain come on relatively quickly and start off subtle – a slight cerebral buzz and a feeling of relaxation is eventually followed by a mild case of couchlock and the munchies, if you continue to toke. This is definitely a strain that you should take it easy with. Take your time and enjoy the heady buzz and the body relaxation that melts away stress while you go about your day by medicating sparingly, and later into the evening you can go ahead and puff away (and you’re sure to be munching away and binge watching Netflix until the sedating effects kick in).
If you’re planning on using Strawberry Banana as a medicine, then you will find that the high THC percentage often leads to a stronger medication – making it best for afternoon and evening use, especially due to its indica dominant genetics. This strain is one that will leave you free of major anxieties and stress while you go about your day. It can relieve depression by providing an uplifting mood and even aiding in creative ventures. You will also find that it has relatively strong pain relieving properties, making it an excellent choice for many patients.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of information about growing this strain – but it seems to be relatively new as well, so in time this is likely to change. If you come across this strain in a dispensary then you should definitely pick some up and give it a try if you’re a fan of sweet and fruity strains with strong effects.
