Banana Peel is a hybrid cannabis strain from Illuminati Seeds that is a cross between Banana OG and Pestilence. The result is a delicious strain that has THC levels of around 18% to 20%.
As the name suggests, there is a strong smell and aroma of bananas. The strain has large flowers that are olive green and covered in orange hairs and amber trichomes. When the buds are broken up, there is a slight aroma of diesel, but it is the sweet banana smell that is dominant when burnt.
The initial high from Banana Peel is very easy going. The mental and physical effects can be felt from the start, with tingles flowing through the body leaving people relaxed but energised. Many find it a motivating and creative strain that can provide a great deal of energy. The body high builds over time and when it eventually wears off, most people want to go straight to sleep.
Banana Peel may also be of medicinal use thanks to its uplifting effects. It may help with depression, stress, fatigue, and bipolar disorders. Some have also found that it helps with pain relief, headaches, nausea, and muscle spasms.
Unfortunately, Banana Peel seeds are very rare and it is considered a hard strain to grow, which means it is not one for beginners. However, it can be grown indoors, will have a flowering time of 9 to 10 weeks, and produce an above average yield.
