Strawberry Banana’s well-balanced high is right at home in a variety of settings, from introspective solo unwinding to buzzy, social surroundings. It is especially appropriate for parties, where its unique aroma is sure to turn a few heads. This strain’s high resin production also makes it particularly useful in producing hash and other THC concentrates.
Although Strawberry Banana seems like a taste combination best suited to a breakfast smoothie, it’s also the name of an indica-leaning hybrid developed by breeders Reserva Privada. Strawberry Banana is a cross between two fruity strains: Bubble Gum and Banana Kush. With a universally-appealing flavour and an easygoing, mellow high, this strain enjoys wide popularity in the west coast market.
A genetic cross between Crockett’s Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum, Strawberry Banana inherits a sweet fruity flavour that earned this hybrid her name. Known for its heavy resin production and high THC content, Strawberry Banana produces happy, peaceful effects that sharpen creativity and sensory awareness.
Like many strong indicas, Strawberry Banana has a high that builds slowly, often taking several minutes after smokers have savoured its unique taste before fully revealing its effects. Users will eventually feel a sharpened sensory perception and may feel like certain sights or sounds have taken on a psychedelic component. These trippy — but not entirely cerebral — effects can be well suited to enjoyment of low-key movies and music; they may also be just the thing for a long walk or a hike. Any initial mental impact from this strain is soon overtaken by powerful indica relaxation. Smokers may look to take a load off in the closest comfortable surroundings. Associative thinking persists throughout the high and may lend itself to creative thinking and problem-solving. Couchlock is common in the later stages of the high. Because of its delayed sedative onset, Strawberry Banana is best suited to evening or nighttime use.
This strain has many applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Those with anxiety or depression may feel temporary relief, as heightened senses may contribute to a feeling of being “in the moment.” Strawberry Banana’s sustained sense of focus can also be of use to patients with attention deficit disorders. Its sedative indica effects can provide relief from both moderate and acute aches and pains. On the downside, dry eyes and dry mouth are very common side effects.
