Effects & Usage
Strawberry Banana, also called Strawnana, is a 70% indica-dominant hybrid that will delight your mind and senses. This powerhouse boasts high levels of THC, ranging from 20 to 26% and will mellow out even the most experienced smokers. The effects of the strain are mainly physical, calming and euphoric – perfect for unwinding and enjoying some introspection as well as low-key social gatherings. It features a broad cannabinoid spectrum with 1% CBG alongside THC and CBD.
Strawberry Banana’s high THC content provides a potent yet balanced experience. It is known to be a creeping trip that takes a while to kick in, which makes it slightly easier to cross your limits. Make sure to start slowly and allow 15 minutes to feel the effects.
The sativa properties will become noticeable first, providing a short initial boost of mental stimulation. A profound, overpowering feeling of relaxation quickly follows. Strawnana makes time stop for a while as you are mellowing out, enjoying yourself with excellent music or a movie, glued to the couch. The strain is known for amplifying sensory experience so that you will appreciate your surroundings and food much more.
With its deeply relaxing effects, Strawberry Banana will be a perfect companion for lazy weekends or evenings when you need to unwind after a stressful day.
Strawberry Banana has many potential medicinal benefits. Symptoms of anxiety and depression get relieved with the help of uplifting limonene. The stress-soothing properties, bolstered by calming myrcene, can provide insomnia relief. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory qualities of the strain, supported by caryophyllene, can benefit those suffering from chronic pain and muscle spasms.
Expect the regular cannabis side effects: dry eyes and cotton mouth. In addition, those sensitive to THC might experience increased anxiety and paranoia. Remember to start slowly and gradually build up your intake as needed. This strain is recommended for seasoned users – as a beginner, you may find it too potent.
As you end your trip, Strawberry Banana makes you sleepy. Therefore, it is best not to use it in the morning unless you want a long nap in the middle of the day.
Taste & Smell
Strawberry Banana features dense, compact tiny buds in shades of light green with a yellow tint and occasional purple hints. The flower is adorned with a frosty layer of trichomes and vivid orange pistils, making the combination eye-catching.
The strain’s aroma offers a tempting blend of sweet strawberry and creamy banana that will make you think of a smoothie. However, upon breaking the buds, you will also notice a hashy, spicy odour, adding to the overall scent’s complexity. As for the flavour profile, a smooth, fruity impression carries on, with predominantly banana flavours that tend to linger in the mouth.
This potent aroma can easily be smelled from afar – make sure you take necessary precautions if you want to keep your consumption discrete.
The unparalleled excellence of Strawberry Banana was born from the collaboration between two cannabis powerhouses in Amsterdam and California. Serious Seeds and DNA Genetics’ Reserva Privada combined their expertise to create this unique strain by crossing Strawberry Bubble Gum with Banana Kush, delivering an experience that lives up to its fruity name.
Strawberry Banana cultivation is relatively easy, and the strain can be a good choice for a first-time grower. It typically takes 9-10 weeks to flower and offers a good harvest. Indoors, Strawberry Banana plants yield around 425 grams/m² and can reach heights of approximately 1 metre, while outdoor plants can yield up to 650 grams per plant and grow up to 1.8 metres tall. Although it is generally easier to cultivate indoors, you can attempt growing Strawberry Banana outdoors during Thai winters.
