If you’re a comic book fan, you know exactly what this strain’s name is all about. But in case you’re missing the reference, Bruce Banner is the Incredible Hulk’s real name. And this strain lives up to its comic book namesake. Although it might look like any other bud, this one’s hiding some insane super powers.
Bruce Banner is known for being one of the most potent and powerful strains in the world. Most Sativa strains have around 13.5% THC, but this one averages 20% and very often climbs as high as 30% THC. This is the Hulk of the cannabis universe.
Given its high THC content and its Hulk reputation, Bruce Banner does a remarkable job of delivering a well-balanced high. Since it’s a Sativa dominant hybrid, most of what you’ll feel is going to be in your head.
Expect a quick and hard-hitting cerebral high that will eventually level out leaving you feeling relaxed, euphoric, and creative. Beneath all that cerebral activity, you may also notice an excellent sense of bodily relaxation.
When you start breaking apart a Bruce Banner nug, you’ll see a diesel scent with sweet undertones. The taste of the smoke will take on slightly different flavors. It’s earthier, less sweet, and may also carry a hint of citrus.
Heavy doses can lead to some side effects. Most often those are dizziness, anxiety, and maybe a bit of paranoia. It might be a good idea to take this one a bit slow on your first go-round since it tends to pack a pretty strong punch.
Bruce Banner can be an excellent choice for afternoon, evening, and night time use. The balance between euphoric head high and mellow body high may leave you feeling rejuvenated, focused, and creative. That makes it a great strain for social settings and for days when you need a bit of inspiration.
When it comes to medical uses, Bruce Banner can be a good choice for treating stress, depression, ADHD, and bipolar disorders. For some patients, it can also help treat headaches, as well as general aches and pains.
Bruce Banner was created by the ganja geniuses at Delta 9 Labs when they crossed Strawberry Diesel with OG Kush. They initially made 5 different variations of Bruce Banner. Variations #2 and #4 were quickly dropped, and today, you should be able to get your hands on Bruce Banner #1, #3, and #5. But the king of them all is Bruce Banner #3. That’s the one that regularly tests at 30% THC.
Bruce Banner is best for more experienced growers. It does particularly well with the Sea of Green method. Expect flowers to start showing up around 8 to 10 weeks. The buds from this plant will be bright green with beautiful red hairs and an amazing coating of fat trichomes.
