Banana Kush is a cross of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze
When people think of Kush, they tend to think of couch lock. While Banana Kush does have some heaviness to its effects, the stereotype of Kush varieties doesn’t hold for this strain. This strain smells like many Kush varieties, with an earthy base, but Banana Kush is sweeter, truly conveying a banana’s odor. This strain is far more energizing than a typical “down” strain, and some may not even classify Banana Kush’s effects as “down”. Calling this strain energetic may be an overstatement, but there is a distinct upbeat effect that separates Banana from other Kush hybrids.
Glancing at some data from may help us understand Banana Kush’s complexity better (quick note: the data discussed in the following sentences is not necessarily representative of all harvests of Banana Kush, various environmental factors contribute to cannabinoid/terpene profiles even when dealing with the same genotype of a variety). The potency on this sample of Banana Kush is pretty high, with over 22% total THC content. When we turn to the terpene results, no obvious molecule stands out for producing uplifiting effects. The terpene content is comprised of myrcene, terpinoline, humulene, and caryophyllene, none of which are known for stimulating, or energizing properties. That said, the synergistic relationship that creates Banana Kush’s effects might not be properly understood by simply glancing at a select few terpenes tested, as is the case with allstrains. The terpene results for this sample also may not be representative of the average result for Banana Kush, an average that we will probably never know. Thus, the terpene profile here does not yield us much insight into the special characteristics of Banana Kush.
I wouldn’t use this strain before a work out, but I probably wouldn’t use it to unwind before bed either. I generally utilize this strain for activities that don’t require much physical exertion such as social gatherings. This is a great strain for folks who like relaxing varieties that err on the side of being pro-social, rather than on the side of sedation. If the smell and high potency aren’t enough to get you excited about Banana Kush, the flavor and effects might just make you a fan.
Note: Remember, everyone responds differently to cannabis. Every harvest will be slightly different, even with the same grower. The context in which one uses the strain matters as well as one’s expectations prior to consuming. The information presented in this review isn’t meant to guarantee a specific effect. Always start with a low dose in a comfortable environment to see how the strain impacts you.
Chemdawg is an indica dominant hybrid marijuana strain. It has a long list of medicinal uses and provides a nice mellow high when being smoked or vaporized. Being the parent of sour diesel, Chemdawg emits a strong diesel-like aroma that users will recognize from the prevalence of sour diesel in the market these days. Chemdawg is known for its potency, wth THC levels approaching 20%.
Chemdawg provides both cerebral and body highs with the degree of each dependent by user. Some smoke the flowers and believe it is a sativa given its uplifting, mind-lifting cerebral effects. Others cite serious couch lock. So, Chemdawg effects some differently than others. Side effects include dry mouth, paranoia, and anxiety.
The Northern Lights genetics are part of many of the most promising indoor strain varieties. One of the most potent and famous cannabis strains in the world she delivers a stoned body high like no other. Northern lights were originally pure indicas, but most strains you'll find today are indica-dominant hybrids that produce cerebral body highs just a touch milder than the pure indica strains.
Most marijuana historians point to the Pacific Nothwest, most likely Washington State, as the source of the original pure indica Northern Lights strain with the potency and skunky smell they were known for. The original pure indicas could be found up through the 1980s before most were crossed with sativas and many different hybrids were sent out into the public. The Northern Lights we know today still skews indica, but tends to be less of a body high and less potent than the original strains.
Growers like Northern Lights for its potency, but also because it is a resilient, easy to grow plant. In addition, flowering time is short (45-55 days on average) and the plant tends to produce large, dense, compact buds with frost all around them. Northern Lights plants don't produce a heavy smell and yields tend to be large.
Northern Lights can have a strong flowery taste depending on growing conditions, but most describe its taste as sweet and tangy with a piney aftertaste. Even the most seasoned users describe a long-lasting high. Most smokers describe Nothern Lights as a creeper high that builds over time.
Don’t underestimate the strength of this indica strain or the indica-dominant hybrids most see out there. This is for those looking for heavy relaxation probably during the evening or during a day where you have nothing to do. Inexperienced smokers might have difficulty staying awake when first trying Northern Lights given its heavy body high and anti-anxiety effects.
Blue Dream, a sativa-dominant hybrid originating in California, has achieved legendary status among West Coast strains. Crossing a Blueberry indica with the sativa Haze, Blue Dream balances full-body relaxation with gentle cerebral invigoration. Novice and veteran consumers alike enjoy the level effects of Blue Dream, which ease you gently into a calm euphoria. Some Blue Dream phenotypes express a more indica-like look and feel, but the sativa-leaning variety remains most prevalent.
The flaming dragon indeed.
