Banana Punch #9
Banana Punch #9 is a tasty hybrid strain crossbred between two heavy hitting indica dominant hybrids, the Banana OG and Purple Punch strains. The strain earns its name from its predominant aroma that is reminiscent of unripened bananas as well as fresh pineapple, a peculiar scent for cannabis that is immediately noticeable and sets it apart from other strains. So, if you’re in the mood for something tropical, you’ve got it with Banana Punch #9 with its bright medley of fruit scents and flavours! Like its parents, it is considered to be on the heavier side with a THC content average of 25%, though it can reach as high as a whopping 27%. A strain tasty and potent enough that even a banana-loving powerhouse like Donkey Kong would approve of, the Banana Punch #9 is sure to please, sweeping you off your feet and take you away to an exotic paradise!
The high of Banana Punch #9 creeps up on you, and it can be noted for its hazy, tranquilizer-like effects on users as it offers full body highs that last relatively long, a result of its indica-dominant lineage. The deep body relaxation paired with couch-locking effects that are felt with this strain makes it particularly useful for medical users seeking to alleviate chronic body pains or to combat insomnia. As for its cerebral high, the experience with Banana Punch #9 is relatively introverted and euphoric. This characteristic makes it great for mood and stress management like anxiety and depression. If you are in need of pain relief, have a lot on your mind, or are having trouble falling asleep at night, this is the strain for you. You deserve a good night’s rest, so cast yourself away to a tropical island of dreams with this heavy hitter, the Banana Punch #9!
The THC content level of Banana Punch #9 reaches an average of 22%, and is relatively on the stronger side. Its parent, Banana OG, itself a crossbreed between the Banana strain and the all too familiar crowd favourite, OG Kush, reaches highs of a whopping 25%. Its other parent, Purple Punch, a cross between Larry OG and Granddaddy Purple, may only sound less heavy considering its average of 20% but with an additional 1% CBD, it really does, well, pack a heavy (purple) punch!
Appearance & Aroma
Banana Punch #9 does not resemble the fruit in any way, shape or form, but it does look just as tasty as it smells with its beautifully thick covering of frosty trichomes. Its dark green flowers are decorated with purplish hues, sometimes with bits of blue or orange. As for its scent and flavour profile, there are undertones of pine as is common with many marijuana strains, though the strain does predominantly carry the namesake aroma and flavour of sweet bananas. The strain also emits delightfully bright tones of freshly cut pineapple and fruit-flavoured candies (think Fruit Mentos!). Such a vibrant and colourful flavour profile sets this strain apart from others, and with notes so sweet, who needs to take a vacation in the tropics when you can take a trip with the Banana Punch #9?
