Banana Split Strain Genetics

Is Banana Split strain an indica or sativa?

Skord Marijuana and Crockett Family Genetics created a true juggernaut with this strain. The genetics are a cross between the famous strains of Tangie and Banana Sherbet. This is a Sativa-dominant strain with the cross being about 60 percent Sative and 40 percent Indica. 

Tangie became popular in Amsterdam and is an improvement on Tangerine Dream. Those that consume Tangie can expect relaxing benefits from this strain. 

Banana Sherbet is perfect for a person with a creative role. New consumers should smoke this lightly until they are used to the effect. 

The combination makes Banana Split nothing short of incredible for people looking for creativity and relaxation. The strain is perfect for a lazy day despite its Sativa-leaning heritage. 

If you enjoy this, you might also enjoy the Banana Sundae strain or the Strawberry Split strain. Regardless of which strain you are trying, you need to make sure you have an enjoyable experience. If you do not know your limits, take it slow as you do not want to encounter an uncomfortable high.

The aromas include cherry, lemon, and a smell as if you are vacationing in the tropics. 

Linalool is a terpene responsible for reducing stress and impacting depression. The aroma and its effect in combination lead to relaxation.

Valencene has a positive impact on inflammation and has been said to help with respiratory illnesses and has a citrus flavor like that of Valencia oranges.

Cookie Breath is another delicious-sounding strain with similar effects that is around 20 percent THC. 

Medical Conditions This Marijuana Strain Can Help 

Cannabis can help with a number of medical conditions and Banana Split can help the following:

  • Migraines
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Pain 
  • Depression
  • Inflammation
  • Stress

THC can be a great medicine as it seems there is a misconception that only CBD has medical benefits. THC just has psychoactive elements (it gets you high) while most CBD strains still contain trace levels of CBD.
