Banana OG Strain Review Overview
Banana OG Weed is an Indica dominant strain that crosses OG Kush and Banana weed. Banana weed creeps up on you and leaves users couch-locked, relaxed, and gives you the munchies before putting you to sleep! With high THC levels, Banana OG strain is one of the best weed strains for medical users that are looking for pain relief and need help sleeping.
History Of Banana OG Weed
Banana OG Marijuana is a 70% Indica dominant strain that was created by Breeders Apothecary Genetics. This tropical-flavored pot strain was created by crossing OG Kush and Banana Weed and is sometimes referred to as Nana OG or simply, Nana, by growers. Some of the other strains in the lineage include Hindu Kush, Chemdawg, Nepalese, and Thai.
With an impressive 21% or higher THC content, Nana OG is a potent variety that works well for heavy users and medical marijuana patients.
Users love Nana because of its medical effects that offer relief from chronic pain, eating disorders, depression, insomnia, and anxiety. This strain has also been prescribed for ADD/ADHD, Arthritis, inflammation, migraines, PTSD, muscle spasms, and neuropathy. In lab tests, Banana OG also shows 76% CBD, which means that most of the medical effects associated with the strain are related to the high THC levels that work well with CB1 receptors in the body.
Some of the negative side effects of Nana include dry mouth, red eyes, paranoia, and sleepiness. This weed is also known for causing people to be hungry or have “the munchies,” and depending on user preference, this may also be a negative effect. Banana OG can also cause couchlock and heavy eyes if users smoke too much and are definitely not considered a great wake and bake choice. When inhaled, Nana OG produces a thick smoke that can be cough inducing. Overall, we love that the strain effects are so potent, and the product is also affordable for heavy users.
What Are The Reasons To Choose Banana OG Weed Strain
Banana OG Strain has light green buds covered in light brown hairs and tiny clear crystals. The buds are an average density but are chunky, and sometimes have purple spots scattered through the flaming calyxes.
Smell and aroma
Banana OG gets its name not only from the parent strain but also from the pleasant over-ripe banana scent that has citrus and pine notes that create a musky scent as you break down the bud. Most users report that the aroma is mellow and doesn’t linger when smoked or vaped.
The flavor mimics the smell but is much lighter, and reminds users of ripe bananas and a bit of spice such as cinnamon. Most people describe the taste as fruity, tropical, sweet, and slightly woody or earthy. The mellow taste on inhale is different from the exhale, which is a bit like diesel and pine, but not overpowering.
Banana OG marijuana is known for its ability to offer a calm, relaxed euphoria that will leave users couch-locked, hungry, and ready to go to bed. This is the perfect nighttime pot strain and is a great stress reliever. The 30% Sativa blend of Banana OG creates a great head-high in addition to the strong body buzz that offers relief for nerve and muscle pain. The head and body high are both long-lasting, so make sure to have snacks on hand!
Smoking Banana OG after a long day at work, a physical day outside in the sun, or after a hard workout that leaves your muscles sore, tired, and cramped, is the best way to end your day. The fantastic qualities of Banana OG live up to its Kush ancestry and provide immediate pain relief while the head high creeps up on you and soon leaves you feeling euphoric. You’ll sleep like a stone after smoking Banana OG.
Other Information About Banana OG Marijuana Strain
Banana OG strain was first grown in California; however, it is popular in the Pacific Northwest, Georgia, and Colorado as well. Sometimes the popular strain will also show up at other dispensaries in the South and Southwest.
Flowering time for Nana is only seven to nine weeks and needs consistent 70-degree temperatures and semi-humid environments to flourish. This marijuana strain is easy to grow indoors or outdoors if conditioners are right, and the plants will be short, bushy, and will need a bit of maintenance to keep the fan leaves trimmed back from blocking the light. Most harvests happen in late September and a modest yield of 32 to 37 grams of flower per square foot.
Banana OG marijuana strain is an excellent choice for users looking for oils to make edibles or looking for the edibles themselves because of its sweet, fruity flavor. Although flower buds are the most popular form for Banana OG, many users love using the vape oils in pens where the THC levels can be as high as 94% and wax made from Banana OG.
Seeds will be hard to come by if you are looking to grow this tropical, fruity, pleasant smelling, sleep-inducing marijuana plant at home; however, there are a few seed banks online that carry the strain, including its creator—Breeders Apothecary Genetics. Keep in mind that unless you have temperate weather and a semi-humid climate, you’ll need to grow Nana indoors.
