The Banana Foster strain is 100% Indica cannabis. Derived from the classic Girl Scout Cookies (widely known Indica-dominant hybrid) and Banana OG (has a smell and taste of overripe bananas), the Banana Foster strain packs a unique terpene composition. The two prevalent terpenes in the Banana Foster weed bud are ocimene and pulegone. They give the Banana Foster marijuana its butter-like earthy taste and aroma, featuring violet and peach overtones smokers can notice on the exhale. The effect provided by this bud starts with a highly unfocused giggling and creative state that then slowly turns into a potent relaxation and total bliss of happiness. The THC in the Banana Foster strain reaches 6.5 - 8.5%, making it suitable for inexperienced medical patients.

The cannabinoid content of the Banana Foster strain is made up of the following compounds:

  • CBD 0.08 - 0.5%
  • CBC 0.27 - 0.6%
  • CBG 0.33 - 1.36%
  • CBN 0.4 - 0.29%
  • THCV 0.37 - 0.59%
