What are the Flavor and Effects of Banana Autoflowering?
Based on its name, the Banana strain releases the same notes as the fruit it was named after. The aromatic mixture combines the banana fragrance with some sweet and tropical scents. Once inhaled, the thickness of the smoke can induce some coughs. Thus, taking this strain should be done slowly and in low amounts. On the other hand, the taste buds enjoy a tropical experience with a combination of bananas, tropical fruits, and a kick of sweetness. Due to its OG Kush lineage, it also consists of a slightly skunky and diesel-like taste but is still overpowered by the bananas and tropical fruits.
Smokers should be careful when consuming the Banana strain as it creeps in after a period of time. A tingling physical is felt starting at the back of the head and reaches the rest of the body, giving an overall relaxing feeling. Also, during the high, smokers will feel lighter and brighter as the euphoric and mood-enhancing properties induce the body. After some time, the body will feel hungrier, and sleep will take over the body. This strain is best used at night or right before bedtime.
What are the Medical Benefits of Banana Autoflowering?
The Banana strain offers the best of both worlds as it is used for recreation and relieving some medical conditions. This strain’s calm and uplifting effects alleviate individuals with depression and anxiety by clearing out any worries and negative thoughts that come to mind. While the mind is relieved, the body is also in complete tranquility as the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties help reduce swellings and chronic pains caused by migraines, arthritis, cramps, and other related conditions.
As this strain induces drowsiness, individuals with insomnia can benefit and use this strain as an alternative to sleeping pills. For those with eating disorders that trigger extreme weight loss, the Banana strain can increase the appetite of smokers as well.
Negative Effects You Can Expect from Banana Autoflowering
Despite having numerous benefits, the side effects that come with marijuana strain can still occur. Conditions like dry eyes and dry mouth can still cause discomfort even with moderate amounts when taken in a dehydrated body. Drinking lots of fluid and keeping an eye lubricant ready should be done before any smoking sessions.
Lastly, it is still not advisable to take immoderate amounts as this can cause couch-lock, dizziness, nausea, and headache.
How to Grow Banana Autoflowering
Like any other Indica strains, the Banana plant has a short yet broad structure. Thus, frequent pruning and trimming should be done to keep the plant healthy and prevent any buildup in moisture. The large leaves may also block the sunlight from other plants, which may disrupt the plant’s growth. This plant can thrive in both indoor and outdoor environments. The temperature mustn’t be warmer than 70℉, which makes it suitable for cultivation in cool places.
