Banana Cream Strain Genetics

Banana Cream is a 70/30 Indica-dominant hybrid of Banana OG and Cookies and Cream. The strain is praised for its delicious flavor but the potency of Banana Cream is nothing to scoff at. Expect to be relaxed without being sedated and you will likely have a few laughs/giggles. 

Banana OG is a strain that should be reserved for hardcore smokers with up to 27 percent THC.

Cookies and Cream is very popular and has even won awards at large marijuana-related events. The strain has up to 26 percent THC so it is not for the faint of heart. You will feel a burst of energy only to relax and might even help trigger creativity for some consumers. 


Banana Cream is relatively easy to grow whether you decide to do it indoors or outdoors. Indoors you can expect around an ounce per square foot. Outdoors the harvest will yield around 15 ounces which is quite healthy considering the potency of this strain. 

Flowering Time

The flowering phase of Banana Cream lasts 6 to 8 weeks. 

The appearance of this strain is that of flat nugs that are neon green. There are gold trichomes along with golden hues on the buds. The dark orange hairs are just the last of the features that make this strain so attractive. 

THC Percentage

Banana Cream is quite potent with 23 to 26 percent THC. Be careful when smoking this as too much of a good thing can lead to feelings of anxiety. Pop in a funny movie and allow this strain to heighten the experience. 

Flavor And Aroma

The flavor is nearly identical to banana cream pie. The aroma is nearly identical and is of bananas. The terpene profile is made up of Humulene, Pinene, and Valencene. 

Humulene will have an essence of earth and a herbal spicy flavor. Expect this terpene to help decrease inflammation as well as calm the mind and body. 

Pinene will have the overwhelming aroma of pine as it is present in a number of plants. The terpene has been studied to help people find relief from stress, anxiety, and pain.

Valencene will taste and smell like the beautiful oranges of Valencia. Strains with this include Tangie and Clementine. The terp has been known to help consumers reduce inflammation levels.

Banana Cream is not going to be the most expensive or least expensive strain out there. You can expect to pay around $40 to $45 per 1/8th of an ounce. The full oz. is going to cost around $260 to $275. 

The prices are going to be impacted by state and even city taxes on marijuana. States like California have massive taxes on marijuana which drives up prices at dispensaries. Oregon has some of the most affordable marijuana in the entire United States.
