The smell of banana peels and Christmas pine trees is what you get with Banana Punch. The taste is also like bananas and some people report a cinnamon taste. This is an Indica dominant cross 70:30 Indica/Sativa hybrid between Banana Kush and an unknown strain. The THC level is 25%. This plant is a light green color. It has brown hairs that grow quickly and get darker as the date for harvesting approaches. While the yield isn’t as high with this particular strain of cannabis, the potency of it makes up for it. Banana Punch offers a mellow buzz that sets in quickly. It affects mainly the body so your mind will relax but still be very functional. The overall mellowing effect can help with reducing stress and an anxiety. If you use large amounts of this cannabis, it is going to make your eyelids very heavy. Large amounts can also result in couch lock. It is a good choice for reducing muscle pain and inflammation.
Pink Phenom is a Sativa dominant hybrid with very little known origins. We saw huge potential in the smell/flavor package, which reminded us of some of our favorite fruity Hazes. The effects were definitely Sativa-dominant, with a familiar Haze-influenced dream-like effect and some moderate muscle and mental relaxation. We sort of vacillated between active and sedative states, making the medical uses once again a little confusing and varied. We see this as a late daytime type of med for patients who want to retain functionality and energy but can still use a mental vacation. About 5 minutes following the start of the review session, the typically Sativa onset of a buzzing body and changes in head/eye/face pressure set the tone for the majority of the experience. Our heads felt light and floaty, even a little disoriented or dizzy at times, while our bodies were lightly energized, buzzing strongly in the upper legs, forearms, and ears. A familiar Haze-influenced “sensory blanket” seemed to have us a little bit duller and slower than normal in a variety of mental processes, though the mood elevation it provided made us not particularly care. As it moved on, our bodies became more relaxed and it moved into the standard Sativa comedown, where the couch is more attractive than movement… this state seemed to go away and come back several times over the final 1.5 hours.
Platinum Blackberry is a rare indica dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the infamous Platinum OG Kush with the delicious Blackberry Kush strain. This bud brings on an insanely delicious flavor and gorgeous appearance all wrapped up with a potent heavy high. Platinum Blackberry has a sweet fruity berry flavor accented by hints of savory diesel and spices on each exhale. The aroma is of fresh berries and spicy dank with a pungent earthy overtone that can fill a room with its stench. Platinum Blackberry buds have lumpy dense popcorn-shaped dark olive green nugs with amber hairs and a coating of frosty white crystal trichomes. The Platinum Blackberry high will hit you in both mind and body, pulling you into a state of lifted sedation that lasts for hours on end before you finally fall asleep. You’ll feel a tingly onset in the back of your head before it takes ahold of you in your entirety, pulling you down into relaxed sedation. These effects in combination with its super high THC level give Platinum Blackberry an edge in treating conditions such as insomnia, migraines or headaches, hyperactivity, mood swings, and chronic stress.
