33 Bananas

33 Bananas is the balanced hybrid child of the Bananas and OG Kush (50% indica, 50% sativa) strains. For the most part, 33 Bananas is one of the fairly potent strains with THC content at 15%-27% and less than 1% CBD. The strain (cultivar) is named after its rich, fruity, sweet banana aroma and tastes like overripe bananas. The high it creates has refreshing, soothing, and energizing cerebral effects. It is a popular strain worth trying because of its delightful euphoric effects and novelty flavor combination. Its effects suggest that 33 Bananas may help manage anxiety, depression, chronic pain, ADHD, and stress.

This cannabis strain is available from cultivator Kings Garden and was created by crossing Bananas and OG Kush strains. Like its parent strains, 33 Bananas has a pleasant fruity taste shockingly similar to bananas and reportedly provides a happy, relaxed high.

In comparison to the Bananas strain, 33 Bananas has higher levels of sativa, making it evenly balanced genetically rather than an indica-dominant hybrid.
