      Banana Kush Strain Information

      Banana Kush is a 60/40 indica-sativa hybrid with an average THC concentration of 18% to 25% and roughly 1% CBN. After a few tokes of this tropical delight, you’ll feel a buzzy sensation spread throughout your headspace, which may leave you creatively inclined, giggly, or unusually chatty. Those effects won’t last long, though.

      After an hour or so, Banana Kush’s indica side will take over and swiftly soothe your physical form with a heavy, sedating body buzz. It won’t be long before you find yourself stuck to your couch, eyelids heavy, and drifting off to sleep.

      With its mentally liberating and physically soothing effects, Banana Kush may be particularly helpful for medical users looking to alleviate stress, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia.

      Where The the Banana Kush Strain Is Grown

      Banana Kush originated somewhere on the West Coast of the United States. Some sources say the breeders at Cali Kush Farms first created the strain, while other sources claim the growers at Crocket Family Farms came up with it. Suffice it to say, no one is quite sure who first bred the bud.

      Banana Kush Strain Summary

      If you’re looking to bask in a beautifully soothing high that’ll help you happily unwind after a long day, a bowl of Banana Kush may be just the end-of-day dessert you’ve been searching for. But new tokers, beware: This bud can creep up on you quick-like. If your tolerance is relatively low, a couple of hits should be more than enough. If this strain floats your boat, you might also enjoy strains with similar effects like Banana Punch and Banana OG.
