Origins, Genetics, History
Banana OG Type: Banana OG is a hybrid of the following strains:
- Banana Kush
- OG Kush
Banana OG is a double Kush. The banana smell gives way to a strong kick of banana taste, said to be even greater than that of Banana Kush. Banana Kush descends from Ghost OG and Skunk Haze. So, you get all the OG, Kush, and Haze that you want. That’s a true medicinal punch. And this is an Indica, so it’s gonna lay you out like a steam roller. This is for some serious pain or mood disorders, but if you wanna try it for fun, have at it. Not for beginners, and do not operate heavy machinery (DNOHM weed).
- NFB (Not for beginners)
- DNOHM (Do not operate heavy machinery)
- Do not fall asleep around strangers, aka knock out weed (KOW)
- Couch-lock weed coma (CL) (WC)
Appearance and Smell
Banana OG smells like a bunch of over-ripe bananas when you smell it, and like fresh bananas when you take it, so it is smooth delicious smoke. As you can see from the picture above, you can get very dense buds, green, and purple, surrounded with psychedelic swirls of healthy orange pistils, and absolutely smothered in THC-rich trichomes. This indicates a level of THC as high as 27%, some of the most potent weed you can possibly smoke without turning into a Martian. It smells of banana with notes of citrus and spice. It is also tropical. Earthy from the strong Kush ancestors, which produce resilient plants which can survive unaided under the Hindu Kush mountains. Kush genes always suggest a spiritual connection to the Buddhists and Hindus who cultivated the plant and how it found its way all the way to the other side of the world, where it mated with native species producing delicious hybrids.
How to Grow Banana OG Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings
Growing weed from Banana OG cannabis seeds is said to be anywhere from easy to moderate. The truth is, not a lot of people know the answer to the question of how easy or difficult it is because this is a somewhat new weed. Breeders Apothecary Genetics now offers seeds so where legal, you can see for yourself how easy or difficult it may be. But due to the Kush genetics, you can infer that this should be a very hearty plant, able to fend for itself in a variety of contexts.
Grown indoors, it may take 7 or 8 weeks to flower. You can expect to get 14 ounces per square meter, which is plenty for a weed this strong. Other growers report that they only got about one ounce per square meter of this powerful plant, which is pitifully low, but still worth the effort at 27% THC. To avoid low yields, you probably want to top off your plants and do some trimming to ensure maximal light exposure.
Outdoors you need a mild Cali climate. You can get 14 ounces per plant. You will do well whether for personal use or for selling.
Medicinal Marijuana Review
Banana OG is a relaxing Indica that packs a mad punch of THC. That means it’s gonna treat pain, mood disorders, and wasting.
Any Indica boasting the highest THC levels is gonna fight pain in a way that is much better than that of opioids and other pain relievers. It is not as addictive as opioids and won’t give you a heroin-withdrawal like drugs like oxycontin. Instead, you get a pleasant, relaxing high, pain relief, and another incredible benefit, pain forgetting. See, pain becomes chronic through memory. That’s why many pain relievers cause forgetfulness, it’s a necessary part of pain relief. The brain has to forget the pain. In conditions like sciatica back pain, memory plays a large role. Sometimes there is true damage to the back, but other times, the damage that caused the pain has healed, but the memory of the pain continues to get activated. For this, you need a drug which can not only treat the pain, but delete the memory of the pain, and weed is just the drug for that, with little withdrawal and dependence.
Banana OG can also fight wasting and loss of appetite that results from chemotherapy for conditions like cancer and Lupus. This can be vital for helping patients to gain weight and thrive.

Banana OG is a heavyweight. It can be used recreationally, but don’t say we didn’t warn you. You’ve seen by the picture, the plant is blanketed in powdered THC. You will get a mouthful of banana fragrance, and THC. You’re gonna be locked to the couch and in a euphoric, great mood. This is a good weed for intimate moments with a lover, or just to giggle and stuff your face with food with good friends. Choose healthy foods that won’t blow your buzz, like fruit and cheeses. Methionine, a sulfur based amino acid, is what’s gonna blow your high, so avoid high-protein foods, or high carb foods until later. They will put a period at the end of your high and you will sleep and wake up feeling heavy. You don’t want that, you wanna keep going having a blast, and you will!

Banana OG Marijuana Strain
Oct 13, 2019
I probably feel like Bella in Twilight, the moment she opened her eyes after becoming a vampire. Your every sense boosts and enables you to feel the world and things around you in a whole different way, much more sensitive. The visuals are richly detailed and more colorful, so it must be amazing to admire a landscape after smoking it. A canyon or forest, sea etc. If staying home, watching a film is a great idea. Choose something beautiful! Music becomes better too, so divine and it's like your ears can hear wider range of sounds. It feels so good, this cuddly euphoria I mean. It's just like if angels descended from the sky and pet you with their small hands, you're relaxed and cool at the same time. The feeling is like being at your grandma's house, comfort and peaceful. The mind remains clear though, so you're fully down to earth and able to act casual. This strain shows life from the best sides. What about medical effects, it's a really great painkiller and an amazing thing for nausea. Stomach issues are not a problem as well!! Just a few minutes and crippling pain transformed into feeling really GOOD. Banana OG, you're a wizard!

Passengers, fasten your seat belts! The journey you're going to set off on will take you to sky high (if not to the moon). This is the very strain that makes you think up crazy but genius ideas and elaborate theories on the origins of life and then tell a complete stranger about them. A special word of gratitude to the amazing and strong flavors that you taste in this strict order: bananas at first, then vanilla, the last one is... grass yeah. The aftertaste is leafy, green and very strong, I like it though. What can I say about the effects? The main thing is that this pot is definitely the last thing you wanna smoke when you've got work to get done. Good news, it doesn't make you sleepy. Bad news, you'll feel COMATOSE and you can do nothing about it! As you can imagine, very introspective, cause you will have to live in your own head for a bit. A good thing is that it doesn't cause any anxiety. This is the bud you give your friend at a party when they start to complain that the last smoke was too weak.
