All About Banana OG Cannabis Strain
Banana OG Weed is a 50/50 hybrid 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 of 20-23%, Banana OG strain is one of the best weed strains for medical users that are looking for pain relief and need help sleeping.
Aromatic and Taste Profile
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.

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.
