It can stay for smoking, but it’s not for the monkeys. It’s all about Banana Haze Strain, which has nothing to do with this delicious fruit. Super Silver Haze, together with Banana makes one of the most delicious pure sativa cannabis strains available.

This most recently popular hybrid stays closer to a sativa dominant strain than any other, making it a really good choice for any sativa lover who likes a little haze. The nuggets are pointed, conical buds covered in trichomal frost which is greatly showcased by a spot-on trim and the orange hair which indica plants often have.

With up to 22% THC, you just might be able to make it through with Banana Haze. 

Key Takeaways

  • Strain Composition: Banana Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid, developed by crossing Super Silver Haze with Banana. It inherits the best traits of both parent strains, resulting in a potent sativa with a notable banana flavor blended with spicy and tropical notes.

  • Terpene Profile: The strain features a rich terpene profile with up to 21 different terpenes, including limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene. These contribute to its distinctive flavor of tropical citrus and creamy meringue, along with earthy undertones.

  • Effects and Benefits: Banana Haze offers a highly energetic and uplifting experience, suitable for enhancing productivity and focus. It also provides physical sedation, making it effective for treating inflammation, chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, appetite loss, and symptoms of hepatitis C.

Banana Haze Terpenes

Banana Haze, an uncommon, exotically flavoured strain, can contain up to 21 terpenes. Its powerhouse terpene profile creates a flavour that is pungent, reminiscent of tropical citrus and creamy meringue.

Smoked, you can sense the citrus and a touch of earth too. This is thanks to the exotic blend of terpenes, including limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene.

Banana Haze Strain Effects

Banana Haze is a highly energetic pure sativa strain, where this super hazy high imbues every hit. The effects are mostly heady and completely uplifting. Thus, the high comes on almost instantaneously, lifting you into a happy, low-stress bit of relaxation that immediately kicks to the curb any negative or racing thoughts.

A tingly sensation then comes next, filling the back of your head before spreading its tendrils to the rest of your body, leaving you stimulated, energetic, and ready for anything but also still physically sedated due to an even dose of body buzz. However, most Banana Haze consumers have claimed that this high lasts for hours on end and is ideal for productivity and focused concentration.

Banana Haze is best used to treat inflammation, chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, appetite loss, and hepatitis C symptoms. Next, there are the terpenes, which also lend their attributes to the equation. Commonly found in fragrant plants such as mangoes, hops, and the leaves of bay laurel, one of the more common terpenes in cannabis is myrcene, which relaxes.

Caryophyllene is the only terpene to bind to endocannabinoid receptors; for this reason, it helps promote mood regulation and analgesia. Finally, there is pinene, an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory terpene that helps memory and also counters the negative effects of THC, such as anxiety.

Banana Haze Strain Genetics

Through crossing the famous Super Silver Haze and Banana strains, breeders manage to create the beautiful Banana Haze. Its lineage gives it the best of both phenotypes, resulting in a fragrant and pure sativa strain.

Lineage

Super Silver Haze brings on heavy, progressively powerful highs and long-lasting effects. The pervasive citrus and skunky odour of its buds and the sudden punch of energy it gives make Super Silver Haze an easy-to-use treatment for depression, headaches, and nausea. Often referred to as ‘potassium’, Banana is an indica dominant strain with a high THC content of 23% and a phenomenal banana flavour with piney notes.

This is a potent combination that will put you to sleep, relieving anxiety as it goes, plus chronic pain and inflammation, replacing discomfort with a tingly buzz and warm waves. Mildly spicy, and tropical in flavour, this strain is a must for your nighttime cannabis needs.

Growth information

The Banana Haze strain's growth process is moderately easy. Maybe it is not the perfect seed for starter growers, but it's not that hard to get some good quality buds out of this plant once they are well attended. This strain can be grown indoors, although it will surely reward you if you let it get some direct sunlight.

Flowering time

10 to 14 weeks. If Banana Haze is a strain you would like to try out, might as well get other fellow haze strain. Botany Farms offers the outstanding Hawaiian Haze. Get ready for an intense pineapple flavor and hints of flowers and earth.

This sativa-dominant melts your stress away in minutes, giving you an uplifted feeling. Hawaiian Haze is perfect for a daytime smoke since it will make you more sociable and talkative. If you are constantly on the go, give this strain a try. Its 19.7% CBD content will give you all the energy you need to have an amazing day while staying lucid.

My Personal Recommendation for Banana Haze Strain

Banana Haze is perfect for the novice of sativa hybrids, and rewarding for the connoisseur too. The light banana flavours blend with mellow spices, which belie the smooth, energetic high—an effect that is perfect for soaring creative flights of fancy or staying productive without the overwhelming buzz of a high-potency sativa.

For the best flavour and general uplift, vape Banana Haze. This strain is a good choice for novice users and confidence, without being overwhelming to experienced tokers. It’s an excellent prelude to any creative or social activity offering a sustained, enjoyable high.
