We all know Doctor Bruce Banner to be the true identity of Marvel’s greenest hero, the Incredible Hulk, but what about the cannabis strain of the same name? With its classic uplifting Sativa buzz, sweet flavor and many medicinal uses, the Bruce Banner strain deserves fame all it’s own.
About the Plant
The child of popular strains OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, this Sativa packs a 21.3% THC content. As with most Sativa strains, Bruce Banner plants generally grow tall, reaching upwards of 78 inches. Plants flower at 8 – 10 weeks and produce fluffy buds that are an array of green hues, adorned with orange hairs and coated in sugar crystals. Bruce Banner flower gives off a pungent diesel smell (thanks to its Strawberry Diesel lineage) with earthy sweet and mildly floral undertones. When smoked, the flavor comes off naturally sweet, tasting of fruit and berries and mixed with earthy notes that altogether give a refreshing experience. Practiced cannabis users will appreciate the complex flavors of this strain.
Effects of Bruce Banner
Much like the transformation from mild-mannered physicist into a massive green hero, the effects of this strain come on quick and strong. Thankfully, instead of turning you into a giant green monster with severe anger-management issues, Bruce Banner will instead provide a creative buzz that accompanies full body relaxation. The Sativa side of this strain causes a euphoric and energetic buzz that promotes happiness and makes you feel overall uplifting.
While the head high in this strain is strong, the body high provided by this high gives overall relaxation and a nice full body buzz to go with it.
Although this strain won’t be able to help with any issues caused by exposure to gamma radiation, Bruce Banner does have an array of medicinal uses. Those with chronic pain and inflammation will find the body effects of this Sativa useful, and Arthritis patients especially will find relief in this strain. This strain can also help find relief against headaches and migraines.
Patients with depression, stress and fatigue can be helped by the euphoric high that comes with Bruce Banner.
Possible Side Effects
The most common side effects are dry mouth and dry eyes. There is a smaller chance that anxiety or paranoia could occur in those who may be prone to it when using Sativa strains.
Bruce Banner Recommendation
This strain is a great choice when you need to be productive. Need something to motivate you to finish those household chores or complete that gamma radiation experiment? Perfect, this Sativa should be your go-to for getting things done.
The creativity that Bruce Banner inspires make art related activities like painting, drawing or creating music especially fun. Other enjoyable things to do include visiting with friends or going on a nature walk.
The Strawberry Diesel in the lineage of this plant and the berry flavor that can be tasted when smoked cause it to go great with flavored rolling papers or wraps. Juicy Jay flavored rolling papers in Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry and Pineapple would all be delicious choices. If blunts are more your style, High Hemp tobacco-free organic wraps in Hydro Lemonade with Bruce Banner makes a pairing reminiscent of strawberry lemonade in the summer.
