Bruce Banner #3, a sativa dominant strain, is based on the fictional character “Bruce Banner”. Dr. Bruce Banner is a mild-mannered scientist who probably never even had a girlfriend for most of his life. But since the accident, no one wants him to get pissed off. Because when he does, Hulk comes to life. Who wants to deal with a powerful but angry indestructible force of nature?

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
80% / 20% 20 to 22 ounces per square meter 34 to 36 ounces per plant60 – 70 days indoors, early October outdoors.

In the world of cannabis, Bruce Banner #3 is aptly named as it might look like another strain, but once it is smoked, the monster is unleashed on those that makes you feel bad and down, those that stresses you, and those that causes you physical pain. Possessing a high THC level that has been measured to reach 29%, this is one of the most powerful cannabis strain in the world.

Bruce Banner was bred by Delta 9 Labs by crossing OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel. From the original strain, 5 phenotypes came to be. Of the 5, #2 and #4 soon fell off the grid. And of the remain 3 strains, #3 was recorded the highest ever score in potency in High Times Cannabis Cups. The Sativa-dominant Bruce Banner #3, as it is now called, was also a first prize winner in the Denver U.S. Cannabis Cup. Truly, this is Hulk disguised as a cannabis strain.
