All About Bruce Banner Cannabis Strain
Bruce Banner weed strain is a 50/50 hybrid that combines the features of both Indica and Sativa. This weed is as energizing as calming, which allows you to stay calm and keep up with your daily activities while being under its influence. It was named after Doctor Bruce Banner who is most commonly known as the alter-ego of the Incredible Hulk, a huge and powerful green beast that can smash anything with his enormous fists. The parent strains are Strawberry Diesel, another potent and energizing hybrid, and OG Kush, a more calming hybrid, which gives us a strong but not too overwhelming Bruce Banner strain.
The history of the strain takes us to Los Angeles, where a group of cultivars known to the world as the Dark Horse genetics came up with the idea of creating a really potent and energizing strain that would be high in THC but not overwhelmingly potent at the same time. As a result, they created 5 different strains of weed they called after Bruce Banner and numbered them from 1 to 5. As much as in comics, not all the experiments go down too well, so they quickly dropped strain #2 and #4. Strains #1, #3, and #5 were much more successful and are now available on the market. The original Bruce Banner strain THC level goes as high as 23-25% which is considered really potent.

Smell and Flavor
Unlike most strains that have this distinctive herbal smell, Bruce Banner gives you a strong peppery smell mixed with citrusy notes. This familiar earthy or herbal aroma only lingers somewhere in the background. Its smell is also different from anything you’ve smelled before — it is a pungent and strong smell that can make your nose itch a bit, but it is also a familiar weed smell at the same time.
The flavor would always depend on the smoking method you choose. If you’d use a short pipe, especially a pipe made of metal, you will end up with a bitter and really unpleasant smoke that irritates your throat and makes you cough. Smoking a tobacco-mix blunt will produce a softer and less irritating smoke but you will also have a taste of tobacco in there. Smoking with a big old bong or a vaporizer, the smoke will be much more pleasant and you’ll be able to sense those peppery and citrusy notes in there.
Bruce Banner Growing Review
The plants of the Bruce Banner strain grow tall and require some space, so you’ll need a spacious growing station. At the same time, this plant is resilient and strong, so you don’t need to worry about parasites and all that bad stuff, though you still need to show your tree some love and care.
To grow a strong and potent plant, you’ll need either a decent hydroponics system or just some space outdoors. As said, this plant withstands pests and parasites really good, it is also a tall tree, so keep that in mind. The Bruce Banner strain flowering time takes about 9 weeks, which makes it a slow grower. Though, as with all the good things in life, sometimes you must be patient to achieve them.
