Banana OG is an indica-dominant hybrid created by the cross of OG Kush and Banana Kush. This means that this strain is the product of two distant cousins within the Kush family being interbred, designed to create a potent mixture of banana-tinged kush. The critical quality of Banana OG, besides its popular taste, is its entirely out of this world THC content, and thus its immensely powerful effects.
Banana OG is commonly known as “creeper,” due to its tendency to slowly creep on you after first imbibing it. In contrast to many other powerful strains, where the effects are noticeable almost immediately, this strain can you leave you feeling like nothing has happened and that your bud must be somehow defective. This commonly leads to people smoking even more, possibly thinking that they have some kind of magical tolerance, only to then suddenly realize that their weed is actually effective after all. Then, all of a sudden, you realize you have smoked way, way too much.
Even if you have only smoked a reasonable amount, the eventual high will hit you intensely strongly, affecting both your mind and your body all at once. Though it is commonly referred to as an indica due to its 60% indica content, Banana OG’s hybrid qualities are very noticeable as you realize that the high is affecting seemingly every single part of your body.
Your mind will race, accompanied with an uplifting rush of euphoria that seems like a reasonably pleasant sativa, but then your body will suddenly slump over – your muscles will contract, your bones will feel limp, and you will realize that you have crashed onto your couch. Also, over an hour has passed without you even realizing it.
The high of Banana OG is the kind that, as it fades away over time, morphs into a series of different experiences. At first, you will get hit with that knock-out, all-encompassing effect that makes the whole world feel like its crashing down around you, but after a little while you feel incredibly relaxed, both mentally and physically. It is similar to the sensation of finally sitting down after a long, physically active adventure. Your body will have a pleasant hum of contentment, like a napping cat, and you will experience a good deal of couch lock. However, you won’t just be staring at the walls; you will be trapped in deep, intense thought patterns, so expect to find yourself over-evaluating your entire life and possibly even deciding to make significant changes to it. You will likely want to enjoy Banana OG during the nighttime, as its utterly dominant indica effects won’t leave you with very much ability to do anything else.
Many people use this strain to help treat a variety of different medical conditions, as well as just generally helping to deal with adverse situations in their lives. This is one of those strains that is great at a lot of different things, depending on the strength of the dose that you imbibe. However, underneath these mind-blowing effects is a subtle and complicated flavor profile that is often the primary reason many people seek out Banana OG.
