DESCRIPTION: For fans of Mario Kart, you’ll understand that the banana peel is the ultimate back pocket weapon – toss that out and watch everyone spin. Consider that a metaphor because Banana Peel is a wild ride that will leave you tingling and begging for more. The intense and sought after effects are only part of its appeal, because this cross between Banana OG and Pestilence is a true flavor gift from Illuminati Seeds heaven.
The potent banana aromas and even more powerful banana flavors give this lumpy, oversized flower an island vibe, perfect for a day in the sunshine. With THC levels ranging from a moderate to high 18% to 20%, you’re guaranteed to have a good time. These olive green nugs are covered in vibrant orange hairs and a coating of amber trichomes that give it a gold hue in the light. When the buds are broken apart, a slight aroma of diesel will hit your nose and upon burning, that sweet banana scent will fill the room.
Banana Peel brings on an initial high that is very airy and easy going. The mind and body are both engaged by the first puff, with tingles flowing through your limbs and leaving you completely loose, albeit totally energized. The surge in motivation and creativity might have you building a clubhouse in your backyard or even something as simple as writing a poem. The mind-opening sensation this strain gives you will leave you up for anything. Thanks to the sativa, you’ll have energy for days, however, because the indica is not too far behind you’ll start to feel a completely euphoric body high almost from the start. This body high builds over time and for newer users may result in a roller coaster effect: really high highs and a really hard crash. So if that sounds like your cup of tea, be sure to grab your nearest comfy chair or toasty warm blanket because it will soon be night time.
Medically speaking, this strain is a gem. A rare gem, but a gem nonetheless. Because of its stimulative properties and uplifting effects, mental illness and mood disorders have a hard chance against it. Best for depression, stress, fatigue caused by sleeplessness, and bipolar, Banana Peel will sweep in and ease away any of the negative thoughts or actions that make it sometimes hard to just get through the day. As it is highly sedative as well, some users choose this strain for pain relief, headaches, nausea, and even muscle spasms.
Growing Banana Peel might prove to be tricky. Not only are the seeds a rarity, but the plant tends to be somewhat sensitive according to reviews. It’s safe to assume this strain is for intermediate to advanced cultivation. She flourishes indoors and out with a 9-to-10 week flowering time or an early fall harvest. Expect an average to slightly above average yield in the right conditions.
Artists and type-A personalities alike love this strain for its razor-sharp focus and its superb energetic boosts. It allows for a lot of productivity while still keeping your aches and pains at bay. Try Banana Peel when you have a few hours to devote to your high and possibly some extra snacks at hand.
