Banana Hammock is a rare cannabis strain created by Ethos Genetics of Colorado. It was bred from Grape God and Mandarin Sunset in order to have a tropical fruit, honey-filled sweetness.
When it was first released, Banana Hammock had THC levels of around 12%. However, in recent times this seems to have increased dramatically and it has been found to be as high as 26%, which makes it potentially an extremely potent strain.
The strain has an aroma that is almost sickly-sweet, combining honey and tropical fruits. When burnt, there is also an aroma of lime and fresh earth, which is due to the large amount of myrcene in the strain’s terpene profile.
Myrcene is also believed to be excellent at reducing stress and anxiety. As such, Banana Hammock is a god strain to relax with. Many enjoy it before going to bed, as it will calm their thoughts, increase positivity, and instil a mild sense of euphoria. It induces a physical and mental calm, and as such can help with anxiety, stress, depression, mood swings and insomnia.
Banana Hammock can be grown indoors and outdoors. Experienced growers recommend using nutrients sparingly and it is a strain that does not do well in extremes. This means that it shouldn’t be overwatered or grown in a very humid atmosphere. Outside it will produce large yields, but inside they will be smaller. The plants themselves are dark green and purple with white trichomes and bright amber hairs. They will flower in around 8 to 9 weeks.
