Banana Cake Strain Genetics
No messing about in the genetics here, it´s all seedbank favourites and Cannabis Cup winners, with one side of the lineage of Banana Cake cannabis seeds coming from Wedding Cake (Cherry Pie x Girl Scout Cookies, AKA Pink Cookies) and the other coming from In-House’s own Banana OG (OG Kush x Banana). With a true Cali connection in its genes, sweet and fruity is the dominant flavour profile handed down from these legendary parents, but there’s more than that too.
With so much OG Kush in the heritage of this marijuana strain, you best be sure you can expect that classic uplifting yet relaxing buzz as well as growing traits that make these feminised marijuana seeds as well suited for the beginner as they are for the seasoned vet.
Banana Cake Strain Terpene Profile
Fruity, gassy, epic. That’s what you get from the flavours and aromas of this hybrid strain. Of course, that fruit vibe is strong, with the tangy taste of citrus fruits provided by one of the dominant terpenes present, limonene. This is combined with the spicy terpene, caryophyllene to give that strong GSC style cheesecake-like tone.
In terms of aroma, expect earthy and herbal, classic and old-school, that skunk-like tone that comes from the most common of all the cannabis terpene, myrcene. This terpene triad is present in many strains but may never combine to better effect than it does in this Wedding Cake x Banana strain!
Banana Cake Strain Effects
The high THC level (well over 20%) ensures a quick and potent kick from this marijuana strain, with a full-body relaxed buzz hitting quickly and hanging around for a pleasingly low time. Beginners are recommended to take things gently, so this first stage doesn’t hit too hard because it’s supposed to prepare you for the next step of the buzz!
Next up, the euphoria phase, a euphoric, happy high that fills the mind with the nicest of possible sensations and creates a chatty, giggly mood that is the perfect end to even the least perfect of days.
Banana Cake Strain Medical Benefits
The potential Banana Cake medical benefits are partially inherited through the impressive family tree and partly from the cannabinoid and terp combinations. Both parents are known as excellent strains for those struggling with the loss of appetite, and the apple doesn’t seem to have fallen far from the tree in that regard. Whether due to an operation or any other reason, this cannabis strain may aid in boosting appetite.
Additionally, the combination of caryophyllene and THC, along with the potential regulatory powers of myrcene, means this indica heavy strain may support the body in providing relief for pain, especially the symptoms of chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia and migraines.
How to Grow Banana Cake Strain Seeds
When growing Banana Cake feminised seeds, be aware the cannabis plants can grow high, so get your trimming hands ready to keep things under control, especially indoor growers! As long as you keep the plants at a reasonable height, you can expect a high yield to be ready in as little as eight weeks from germination and rarely more than 10 using SOG or SCROG methods.
Outdoor and greenhouse gardeners are looking towards an early October harvest, these marijuana plants do not like the cold, so only expose them to the elements in Mediterranean style climates that stay warm through late autumn. When ready to go, the gassy, herbal aroma from these dark green, trichome covered buds will be impossible to ignore, not that you’d want to!
