Banana OG is a clone-only strain that was made by Oregon Kid and is a cross of OG 92 and 60/40, a strain made by Sagarmatha seeds. Her back story is another of those where chance events seem to fall into step with a bit of luck and opportunity to create a remarkable stand-out flower. Oregon Kid ordered some seeds from Gypsy Nirvana and with them received some freebies that consisted of the 60/40 from Sagarmatha Seeds. From those 60/40 seeds, a male was found that had extremely strong and defined banana terps. This male was crossed with the OG 92 female and from the resulting offspring, a plant was selected that came to be known as Banana OG.
TASTE & SMELL –
As her name suggests, her buds put out a strong tropical fruity banana odor, best described as banana peels accompanied by a mild earthy and citrusy scent. Once blazed, her taste is primarily tropical with a bouquet of hashy incense-like flavors.
Regarding effects, this strain initially packs a racy onset despite being a creeper. Known to inspire deep creative thinking and induce heavy eyelids.
MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Banana OG is predominantly used in the treatment of sleeping disorders and also has the ability to help stimulate appetites for those struggling with eating disorders.
GROW INFO –
Banana OG is considered a relatively easy plant to cultivate. She produces short to medium-height plants with a light green complexion and a compact bushy structure. Her spade-shaped buds are heavily Indica influenced, tight, dense and chunky. Banana OG has a flowering period of seven to eight weeks indoors and is ready for harvest by late September when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere. For increased yields, early topping and strategic pruning to open up the plant is recommended. It should be noted that Banana OG can be a stinky plant during flowering which may cause issues for those wishing to maintain discretion.
SEED AVAILABILITY –
For those wishing to acquire Banana OG genetics, consumers should be aware that this is a clone-only strain and not available in seed form. As is often the case when a clone-only plant gets hyped, people jump on the bandwagon and try to profit off the name. For example, Apothecary Genetics, among others, has released a seed version of Banana OG that is lackluster when compared with the real one made by Oregon Kid! We recommend doing due diligence and checking reputation whenever purchasing seeds.
