If you enjoy trying new strains of cannabis, then you have certainly come to the right place! Today we want to talk about a very popular one, the Strawberry Banana Kush strain.
If you enjoy really sweet and fruity flavors and if you like a high THC content and a really strong body high combined with just a bit of a head high, then the Strawberry Banana Kush strain is definitely something worth checking out.
It's sweet, it's fruity, and if you smoke enough of it, it's going to blow you sky high! Let's take a look at what you're in for with the Strawberry Banana Kush.
What is the Strawberry Banana Kush Strain?
The Strawberry Banana Kush strain is an indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that is roughly 70% indica and 30% sativa. Most of the high that you will get from this particular strain is going to come from the indica side of things.
Moreover, this is one of the strains with the potential to contain well over 30% THC, so it's ideal for more seasoned smokers. It's not something that beginners should consume in high quantities.
That said, if you like high THC levels and you like a really floaty and potent-tasting weed, then the Strawberry Banana Kush strain is something that you should consider smoking, vaping, or even consuming via edibles. This is a cross between two other very popular and potent strains, Strawberry Bubblegum and Banana Kush.
Strawberry Banana Kush Strain Appearance
In terms of appearance, this particular strain features buds that look like popcorn. These buds can be very irregularly shaped and lumpy and are always fairly large or sometimes even oversized.
These are not the densest of buds, so they can be squeezed together quite a bit. These nugs tend to be fairly bright green, almost neon green in color, and have a large number of long and dark orange hairs.
What you will also find is a very thick layer of white trichomes and sticky resin along the outside, which makes these buds look like neon-green grass that has been snowed on. Most people say that this is one of the best-looking buds around.
Strawberry Banana Kush Strain Genetics
As mentioned above, the Strawberry Banana Kush strain is roughly 70% indica and 30% sativa. It is a cross between two other very popular strains, Crocket’s Banana Kush and Strawberry Bubblegum.
First, we have the Strawberry Bubblegum strain, which is a cross between Strawberry and Bubblegum. This happens to be a fairly well-balanced hybrid, just about 50/50 indica/sativa, and it features a really strong and sweet flavor along with relatively high THC levels.
We then have Banana Kush, which is a mix between Skunk Haze and OG Kush. This is a heavy indica-dominant strain that can contain up to 25% THC. It also has a very strong flavor and is well known for its sleep-inducing and couch-lock effects.
The result here is Strawberry Banana Kush, otherwise known as Strawnana, a strain that can have incredibly high amounts of THC that can knock you out cold, combined with a flavor that is going to make your mouth water.
This is one of the stronger strains around, as the THC content averages anywhere between 22% and 26%, with an average of roughly 24% THC, although there have been some cases where the THC content of this strain has reached well over 32%.
As far as indica-dominant strains of cannabis go, this is by far one of the most potent strains around, and it's absolutely something that you are going to feel right from the first toke. The effects of this strain are extremely strong, so go slow with it. It may also contain negligible amounts of CBD, in concentrations up to 1%.
Strawberry Banana Kush Strain Terpenes
There are four main terpenes contained in the Strawberry Banana Kush strain: limonene, myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene. Exactly what this means in terms of the flavor profile is something we’ll discuss further below.
Strawberry Banana Kush Strain Effects
This strain is going to make you feel incredibly high, and it will do so right from the first pull. The reason for this is due to its extremely high THC content, but also due to its heavily indica-dominant nature.
At first, you will feel the sativa side of things just a little bit. People note experiencing a fairly happy and euphoric head high that makes them feel very good in their brains. However, this euphoric head-high will then quickly give way to the indica side of things. Very soon after smoking it you are going to start to feel very relaxed, with a heavy feeling and tingling in your limbs, as well as feeling sedated.
This is one of these types of weed that is going to knock you out, sink you into the couch, and make you feel intensely hungry. An hour or two after smoking a Strawberry Banana Kush joint, chances are pretty high that you're going to be asleep.
