Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
THC: 20% – 23%, CBD: 1%
Banana Diesel has a nutty, chemical taste with a strong odor of diesel from its Sour Diesel genes, plus sweet and tangy hints of bananas. It’s a sativa-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio of at least 30:70), a descendant of Banana Kush and Super Sour Diesel, with high THC levels – at least 20 % – and higher-than-average CBD contents (slightly more than 1%). Banana Diesel may not be the best strain for conditions that respond to CBD, but it could nonetheless be helpful. The head high is intense, creative, and energized, with a strong shot of euphoria, a case of the giggles, and a big mood boost. It can be used to treat depression, mood disorders, eating disorders, anxiety, irritability, wasting, nausea, chronic pain, and insomnia. The buds are light hued, green and orange, with a layer of highly resinous trichomes. Red eyes and dry mouth are reported as common side effects, while there are fewer reports of headaches, dizziness, and paranoia. Banana Diesel is sold by dispensaries in San Diego and Los Angeles, and might be found elsewhere in California, but otherwise it’s rare.
