Effects & Usage



Like your favourite music tune, Banana Kush is a soothing balm for the soul, elevating you to the next level of tranquillity. With THC levels ranging from 18 to 25%, this indica-leaning hybrid packs a potent punch, delivering mental stimulation with physical relaxation. The banana flavour and aroma top the whole experience, making this Ghost OG and Skunk Haze cross almost feel like a smokable dessert.


Banana Kush will take you on a wild ride – packing a punch potent enough to be quickly felt even by the most seasoned of tokers.

Its effects are progressive, starting with a euphoric crescendo that peaks your mental clarity. Very relaxing to both the body and the mind, the strain puts you in an inspired zone, making vibrant and creative sparks overflow. No wonder it is so popular with artists – it inspires you unlike any other.

Simultaneously, the feeling of relaxation progressively deepens – starting with melting all pain and bodily tension away, eventually culminating in deep tranquillity that can glue you to your seat. Nevertheless, you will remain very cheerful and chatty, which makes Banana Kush a perfect strain to share with others.

Time the journey right, and you can experience a productive, highly creative afternoon, followed by a cosy movie night with friends on your couch, with a handful of delicious snacks.


Combining limonene’s uplifting properties and myrcene’s calming attributes, Banana Kush can offer a respite from the burden of depression, stress and anxiety. With a high content of anti-inflammatory caryophyllene, it is also valued for its ability to reduce pain and muscle tension. Lastly, the potent tranquillity it facilitates can be helpful for patients struggling with insomnia.

Side effects

Banana Kush is quite gracious regarding its side effects for a potent bud. By far, the most common ones are eye and mouth dehydration – typical for just about any other strain. Occasionally, sensitive users may experience some dizziness, slight anxiety and paranoia. To minimise the risks, practise responsible consumption, beginning with a single puff.

Taste & Smell


Banana Kush is undoubtedly a sensory treat, starting with the look of the buds. These tightly woven green nuggets display plenty of bright yellow specks – making the flower resemble a banana grove.

A whiff of the buds feels like a tour down a tropical paradise – you will first notice sweet and fruity aromas, strongly dominated by banana notes. You will also recognise the spicy notes of the OG family and the skunkiness of the Haze.

As for the taste, imagine biting into a banana pie infused with subtle spices, and you will know what this creamy, delicious smoke is like. As exciting as it sounds, remember that Banana Kush is pungent – making it difficult to conceal from others.

Fans of banana-flavoured weed will also appreciate Banana Cream OG and Banana Hammock. We also recommend browsing through our list of marijuana hybrid flowers for more fruity flowers.



Crafted in the golden state of California, Banana Kush owes its genetics to the union of the Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. The creators surely expected plenty when they mixed such popular, potent hybrids, yet the result overcame everyone’s expectations. On top of a great combination of the physical OG family relaxation and a heavy cerebral uplift of the Haze family, the cross resulted in a marvellous banana taste and aroma.

Growing conditions

Banana Kush plants can be picky, so they are not recommended for beginners. With its relatively low (80-150cm) stature and dense buds, Banana Kush is sensitive to humidity. Keeping it at a low level can help you prevent mould infestations.

The plant also needs a steady, intense supply of light – and to control all these factors, indoor cultivation is advised. However, if you get the conditions right, your outdoor plants may provide a generous yield – of even up to 600 grams per plant, compared to roughly 500 grams per square metre indoors.
