Banana Kush is an Indica-dominant West Coast Hybrid. The result of a cross between OG Kush and Skunk Haze, Banana Kush is known for providing a mellow, almost euphoric head-high more often associated with Sativas. The CO2 extracted Banana Kush oil at Karing Kind came in at a mouth-watering 73 percent THC without any of the unwanted chemicals found in many other concentrates. So, using the dab globe on my new Karing Kind Labs Pen, I took a large hit.
The Banana Kush oil tasted sweet and left an aroma that I imagine would have been the same if I had vaporized a real banana. Despite its Indica roots, Banana Kush oil started off like a top-shelf Sativa. I quickly began to feel a creeping head high – the kind that starts behind your eyes before slowly washing over and calming your thoughts and emotions. My mind began to jump around, thinking of different projects and tasks that could occupy my time and make use of my energy. I felt relaxed, but I was ready to go create or accomplish something. In fact, the Banana Kush oil did its job so well I was able to tackle a few unpleasant projects that I had been putting off. I was happy and productive, and the slow build of the high allowed me to get into a good rhythm before the Indica genetics started taking over.
Recommendations: Banana Kush is known for its ability to help with stress and depression, and a few hits of concentrated Banana Kush CO2 oil is the perfect way to come down after a long or difficult day. The euphoric head-high makes it easy to stay productive – doing laundry, walking the dog, etc – but you’ll be just as happy watching a movie or dancing around your apartment to OutKast’s Hey Ya!
Not Good For: Banana Kush oil can help with pain, though if you are suffering from headaches you can find more effective relief in other strains. You also shouldn’t try the saltine challenge after smoking Banana Kush, as your mouth will already be about as dry as a cracker.
Banana Kush CO2 Oil and Banana Kush bud are both available at Karing Kind on Rawhide Ct, off US-36 just north of Broadway in Boulder, CO.
