About Banana OG
It is an indica-leaning hybrid with an unusual aroma: when properly cured, flowers of this strain have the subtle scent and flavor of banana. Banana OG is a cross between perennial favorite OG Kush and Banana Kush, which itself is the product of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. These Kush, Haze, and Skunk genetics intermingle to yield a surprisingly sweet and mild smoke. Besides its standout taste, it offers a balanced, long-lasting high that’s enjoyable in a wide range of situations. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of this strain to have THC levels ranging from 16% to 25%.
The strain is distinguished by impressively large, chunky flowers that have a tapered, spade-like shape. The buds maintain a distinctly indica structure, dense and tightly-packed. Leaves are a pale green and play host to a profusion of rust-colored hairs (which are actually pistils intended to catch pollen from male plants). Banana OG’s flowers are also cover in amber-colored trichomes that give the leaves a slightly yellow tint.
This is a powerful strain with a tendency to “creep” up on its users. Those that enjoy a smooth, gentle climb will love this strain. However, once users are at the peak of their high, they often have an uplifting and euphoric experience, followed by a state of complete relaxation.
A pleasant tropical odor bursts out of this strain’s flowers, presenting notes of banana with some faint citrus in the background. On closer inspection, there’s also a slight grassy smell hanging out underneath.
