The Banana Cream Cake is an Indica-prevailing hybrid that includes 70% Indica and 30% Sativa genes and has inherited the Banana Kush genetics. The breeder is Mad Scientist. The amount of THC hovers around 21% but can exceed this level reaching 23%, with the lowest level of 19.5%. A high percentage of this chemical makes the strain a good choice for veteran smokers. Since it is a photoperiod plant, the Banana Cream Cake genetics is more concentrated with cannabinoids than autoflowering weed, so the occurring compounds in this plant are:

  • CBD 0.32-0.97%
  • CBC 0.15-0.56%
  • CBG 0.08-0.73%
  • CBN 0.18%
  • THCV 0.32-0.65%

Strain Smell and Taste

This cannabis features a rich terpene profile with the prevailing flowery scent that immediately hits users in the nostrils. This aroma is caused by the terpineol and linalool terpenes found in the Banana Cream Cake strain. A remarkable menthol aroma is typical for caryophyllene. There is also a peppery touch on the exhale. Some smokers claim the dominant odors are accented by mild pine and peach notes.

Most Common Effects

As a potent strain, it starts working instantly, boosting energy, creativity, and a good mood. Consumed in small doses, it can be a perfect choice for your wake-and-bake session. These effects are temporary and soon turn smokers into an unfocused, calm, and happy state. The cannabis inspires chattiness and prompts giggles in smokers, making them laugh at anything around. When the body high transforms, people feel total relaxation. The best time for using this strain is in the afternoon.

Recreational and medical marijuana users choose this weed to cope with symptoms caused by:

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis

In general, adverse effects associated with this kush are mild and may include dry eyes, thirst and dry mouth, or drowsiness.

Banana Cream Cake is an indica-leaning hybrid. Its one of my favorites cause its a mood lifter and very relaxing and gradually brings me to a peaceful slumber. This mj contains terpineol, terpene responsible for fruity aromas and good emotional state.

The cannabis I bought comes with 22% thc and almost 1% cbd. The strain was good overall. It offered supreme relaxation that accompanied by a stoney body high. While toking I felt warm calmness across my body. Probably, this phenotype could be a perfect op
