All About Strawberry Banana Cannabis Strain
The Strawberry Banana strain is one of the most interesting, mouth-watering, relaxing cannabis strains ever developed. As the user enjoys the no-pressure, nothing-to-do vibe of the high, he gets wrapped in a cloud of strawberry and banana fragrance and taste.
This Indica plant came out of the cross-breeding between two other intense flavored parent strains: Banana Kush and Strawberry Bubblegum. It is quite potent with 21-24% THC and is recommended for more experienced consumers.

Strawberry Banana Strain Effects
This type of cannabis is an Indica dominant hybrid, meaning that the effects a user benefits are those pertaining to the Indica family of weed, which is generally characterized through a state of relaxation. The Strawberry Banana, or how some users gently call it the Strawnana strain, takes consumers through the whole wide array of stages:
- Slow meltdown
- Associative thinking
- Body buzz
- Couch lock
The medical uses of this strain are the ones generally related to most Indica-based types of cannabis, mostly in treatments that wish to benefit from the feeling of relief and of the unclenching sensations coming out of the relaxation state. As a result, the Strawberry Banana weed strain is recommended in medical treatments for such afflictions:
Although everything seems to be fun and games when it comes to consuming this strain, there are also a couple of unwanted aspects when using Strawberry Banana weed, as part of medical treatment, or for recreational purposes:
- Dry eyes and mouth
- Psychedelic trance if consumed too much
This strain leaves in its wake a fruity, almost creamy, aroma when lit. When simply breaking or grinding the buds, a more spicy smell resides, while also having hints of berries. The most notable aspect of the strain’s aroma, besides the fact that it smells delicious, is that it has a very intense and poignant odor. A nice touch when living solitary, but becoming an issue when trying to keep weed-smoking a secret.
The most notable feature of this banana strawberry strain is, as anybody would’ve expected, its representative taste. Also, not a surprise for anyone that the most recognizable flavor that this strain has, consists of the strawberry and banana hints. Surprisingly, even though the dominant scent is that of berries, the taste which predominates is that of banana. All in all, we can admit that it can be best described as having a tropical flavor.
Information for Growers
The high demand growers have for this type of strain is what really makes it a popular option for them. The fact that it requires low maintenance, at least compared with other sorts of cannabis, is yet another aspect that makes it one of the preferred options. It can also be grown indoors and outdoors, although, in case of choosing the outdoors, the success of this enterprise depends in an overwhelming proportion on the weather’s whims, requiring humidity during daytime and a constant temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
It’s also a strain that presents generous yields, of 42 to 51 grams of flowers per square meter of a plant. Getting this much profitable return for so little effort makes it one of the popular alternatives when a grower decides how to split the limited available space in order to maximize profits and efficiency. The Strawberry Banana strain flowering time is 8 to 9 weeks since the initial seeding, or early to mid-October when grown outdoors.
There are two recommendations for growing this type of cannabis. The first refers to obtaining the purple spots on the buds. It’s a procedure of exposing the plants to unexpected cold weather, at certain moments during the plant’s growth. The second mentions the opportunity to help the buds maintain their resin, after being harvested, through another process which involves, among others, hanging the buds upside-down to dry.
