Effects & Usage



Banana Cream OG is one of the many children of the famous Banana OG mixed with two other hybrids. This evenly balanced strain will tantalise your senses with its distinct creamy banana flavour and a nice harmony between cerebral stimulation and physical relaxation.

Its THC content varies largely, between 15% and 30%, making this strain like a box of chocolates – you never truly know what you will get.


When approaching Banana Cream OG, patience is appreciated, as it takes time to play out its effects fully. After 15 minutes, you will likely start noticing its first effects, manifesting as a tingly sensation that prickles your brain. You will crave deep intellectual stimulation and engaging tasks to utilise the abundance of those great thoughts. Therefore, this phase of the high can be perfect for doing work that requires focus and creative ideas. You will also appreciate sharing it with your loved ones, as the strain gives way to mind-boggling conversations.

Midway through the trip, you will start to notice a growing sense of relaxation taking over your body, to the point where sticking to your couch may seem like the most fun option. For this reason, it is best to keep Banana Cream OG to late afternoons/evenings when you can fully kick back and enjoy its goodness.


Banana Cream OG’s versatile properties can provide valuable advantages to medical marijuana patients. The combination of CBD and caryophyllene gives it the potential to be an effective painkiller, even for chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis. Moreover, its uplifting properties, bolstered by limonene, can help temporarily wipe out symptoms of depression and anxiety. Lastly, by providing a soothing relaxation, Banana Cream OG can help people with insomnia get a good night of sleep.

Side effects

The strain is usually well tolerated, and its side effects are limited to mild dizziness, cottonmouth and the sensation of dry, itchy eyes. However, it is essential to remember that high-THC flowers may sometimes cause paranoia and anxiety, especially in sensitive users with a history of such conditions. So remember to start slowly, just with a puff or two and always stick to your limits.

Taste & Smell


Banana Cream OG’s taste and aroma profile are a very appetising fusion. The scent of ripe bananas laced with earthy undertones greets you upon first encounter, a tribute to its namesake. These fruity notes are complemented by some citrus and creamy richness. The flavour is just as intriguing and will make you think of a banana cream pie – with dominant banana and creamy hints, accented by a subtle citrus touch. As the taste unfolds, you will also notice fresh notes of mints and pine.

The large, chunky flowers display a typical internal indica structured with a dense, tightly packed centre. In addition, they are generously covered in sticky, glistening trichomes adding to the strain’s allure.

Banana Cream OG is frequently mistaken for its more famous sibling, Banana Cream, as both strains trace their lineage back to Banana OG. However, this delicious, less-known hybrid boasts an equally distinctive heritage. It was bred by the Oregon Vagrant Hill Farms specialists, who decided to combine Ocean Cream OG and the famous Blue Dream with Banana OG for a more balanced, just as delicious hybrid.

Growing conditions

Cultivation of the strain may be a bit challenging, as it needs lots of maintenance. It has specific demands concerning temperature and humidity, which must constantly be kept high. However, this makes it a good choice for Thai outdoor growers.

As the plant grows short and bushy and likes it humid, you must trim the top leaves frequently to ensure optimal airflow and prevent moulding in the lower parts of the plant.

Within a mere 8 to 9 weeks, you can expect moderate yields of around 300-500 grams per square metre indoors and per plant outdoors.
