Banana Kush is a strain with a reputation. Banana Kush. This West Coast strain is well known for its banana taste and a great mix of euphoria and sleepiness. It’s moderately tricky to grow with a low yield and is the child of Ghost OG and Skunk Haze.
Banana Kush, while essentially an Indica, does have some of the buzzes of a Sativa. It creates a very potent body high and is great for insomniacs as it’s a strong soporific. Its sleep-inducing effects are so potent that most marijuana consumers save this one for before bed — even seasoned cannabis enthusiasts will have a hard time keeping their eyes open with this one.
Before marijuana consumers drift off they’ll feel a pleasant euphoric buzz and some real mood elevation, melting away the stresses of the day. Some consumers will note dry eyes, mouth, and some slight paranoia if consumed in larger doses. Marijuana newcomers, in particular, should keep this in mind.
Banana Kush has a somewhat legendary flavor profile. It is a cross between Skunk Haze and Ghost OG and has a distinctive banana taste.
