Banana Kush is an Indica-leaning hybrid strain that is popular because of its unique flavors and potent effects. It originates from the West Coast, but the exact breeder is unknown. There are two options for its emergence. The first one states that it was created through a crossing of OG Kush and Banana by Cali Kush. On the other hand, the second one says that the original breeders are Crocket Family Farms, who managed to cross Ghost OG and Skunk Haze.

The THC concentration usually ranges between 23-25%, which makes Banana Kush quite potent. At the same time, the CBD index is approximately 0.9-1.24%. Its high potency and Indica-dominance may become a cause of severe drowsiness, so this marijuana is the best for nighttime consumption.
