Odor and Flavors
To no surprise, Strawberry Banana smells exactly as it sounds – naturally sugary, delicious and invigorating for the burnt-out spirit. Indeed, it’s one of the most delectable varieties to date, and it’s no surprise to have users lining up for a taste of this treat. On that note, the fumes coat the mouth with tropical flavors, which is a lip-smacking blend of the sharpness of strawberries at the forefront and an aftertaste of the subtle sweetness of bananas.
As lovely as Strawberry Banana sounds, it packs a towering THC concentration – 26% to be exact, making this 420 delicacy far from being delicate. Add that up with a dominantly indica content and it serves up a mellow high that builds up slowly, often taking several minutes before knocking down users with its effects.
On the onset, users are greeted to a sharpened sensory perception, where dull colors are now saturated and music is renewed with a psychedelic composition. This unlocks free-flowing thoughts that allow users to draw up fresh and creative concepts.
However, the body has no interest in moving, making such a boost best used for binge-watching films or listening to music. Not a bad way to spend the night, in fact, this mental flexibility is just what users need after coming home from a day of rigor at work.
Before the mind soars too high, a physical heaviness kicks in and steadies the flight. A deep sense of relaxation seeps through the bones and eases the muscles, allowing the body to sink in total tranquility. As the high progresses, users may be locked in the couch for hours, their minds in transit to dreamland.
Boasting of a pronounced potency, its negative reactions should come as no surprise to users who have low tolerance to strong THC effects. On the onset, the mouth and eyes start to feel dry. This parched feeling causes no immediate alarm though as it is easily quenched with the form of a tall glass of water, which should be taken before, during and after a smoke out.
Sooner or later, users might battle against the rising sensation of paranoia or anxiety, although this happens on rarer occasions and only to those who have taken an unmanageable dose.
Medical Use and Benefits
Despite having little to no CBD content, its massive THC level more than makes up for it, and it doesn’t lack in the physical and even mental department either.
To wit, its uplifting quality leaves no room for stress to settle in and spread any more of its damaging effects. With the extra space, even users with depression will be in the mood to renovate the once dark and gloomy ambience they wake up to everyday and replace it with an inspiring, sunlit frame of mind.
In addition, its heightened sensory awareness also eases the frantic thoughts of those with ADHD. Now after a toke of this strain, these patients would be able to focus and lock in on the present task at hand.
Furthermore, Strawberry Banana shines the most in its powerful analgesic property which aids people suffering from chronic pains. Without any aches to wreak physical havoc, even insomniacs will find it effortless to fall in a deep, restful slumber.
