Information about Honey Bananas:
Honey Bananas is as delicious as it sounds. It is also quite unique. There are only a few strains that parallels its terpene profile with most never fully achieving the perfect balance of sweetness. This is, of course, all thanks to its impeccable genetics – a mix of Strawberry Banana and Honey Boo Boo.
In Honey Bananas, Elemental Seeds perfected and enhanced the terpenes of both its parents. It took the delectable sweetness of Honey Boo Boo, a limited-edition strain with a heavy resin production great for making concentrates, then paired it with the equally delicious Strawberry Banana. The latter is a heavy feeding bud with multiple awards to its name for its high yields.
Despite having a mostly Indica lineage, Honey Bananas turned out to be a perfectly split hybrid with THC levels of up to 20%. Its smoke is reminiscent of bananas and fruits that, when drawn in, delivers a potent yet balanced high.

With its equal Indica to Sativa ratio, Honey Bananas provides a well-balanced high that kicks off with an invigorating cerebral buzz that starts a few seconds after the first puff. The behavioral effects are immediate too. Users find themselves feeling lighter and happier.
In the workplace, the upbeat disposition also promotes productivity. By clearing the mind of worries, users can focus solely on their tasks without compromising quality. More importantly, the mental stimulation improves the free flow of thoughts so people can come up with profound or innovative ideas.
Gradually, an uplifting buzz trickles down from the temples. With each toke, it intensifies. But, keeping it from overpowering the initial onset is the mental buzz. Still, it is strong enough to soothe away aches and pains. Free of tension, many users recline on their chairs feeling deeply relaxed.
Although, if used outside of one’s limits, the heavy-hitting traits of the strain’s Indica can send users off to dreamland. Or worse, lock them to their couches with a slight feeling of paranoia. For this reason, Honey Bananas must always be used in moderation.
Honey Bananas almost smells like a basket of fruits laced with honey. Broken apart, its slightly citric notes under its overpowering sweetness becomes apparent. Lighting up the bud, however, reveals its undertones of wet soil.
Drawing in Honey Bananas is like biting into a tropical salad with honey as dressing. It is heavily fruity with a tinge of candied sweetness. On the exhale, its smooth smoke leaves an aftertaste of garden picked ripened bananas.
Marijuana use almost always leads to a cottonmouth. It can also dry the eyes especially as cannabinoids begin to interfere with moisture production in the tear ducts. Though unavoidable, neither are a cause for concern. Still, users may hydrate themselves with a few glasses of water.
In some cases, Honey Bananas can also trigger anxiety. This is rare, of course – as it usually only happens when too much of the bud is consumed. Apart from individual tolerance, one’s disposition before the session can be a big factor. Most of the time, however, users usually end up with either a temporary dizziness or a slight headache especially after the powerful buzz.
Elemental Seeds began their endeavor as a producer of medical products. As such, it comes as no surprise that one of their best-selling strains remains pharmacologically valuable to the medical cannabis community.
Apart from the recreational buzz it induces, Honey Bananas’ THC levels are also a natural stress reliever. Its happy high calms the fast-paced thoughts of a person dreading with anxiety. Similarly, it provides comfort to users going through mental illnesses like depression and PTSD by helping manage their turbulent emotions.
Working well with its mental high is Honey Bananas’ physical benefits. In fact, one of its best uses is easing away pain caused by fatigue, spasms, and cramps. It also reduces swelling and redness in inflamed areas.
Sleep is an important part of the healing process. It regenerates cells so users stay free of physical illnesses. It also promotes wellbeing by appeasing symptoms of certain mental conditions. Through its sedating properties, Honey Bananas helps people recharge by increasing the quality and amount of sleep.
Being a perfectly balanced hybrid, Honey Bananas takes the best traits of its Indica and Sativa genes. For one, it is quite hardy as it can withstand most problems caused by humidity such as mold and mildew. Because the plant is a heavy feeder, it is least affected by the number one mistake made by first-time growers which is nutrient burn. It also has a quick-flowering period.
During the vegetative and flowering stage, it grows tall and produces vigorously. Each bud tapers on one end. Its massive size boasts Honey Bananas’ premium Sativa genetics. Equally stunning is its bright green hue and density. Lastly, the premium coat of resin surrounding each nug is perfect for cannabis extract connoisseurs.
Adding to Honey Bananas’ appeal is it comes in feminized form. This makes it an ideal choice for beginners as Elemental Seeds has not only shortened the growing process, but also assures green thumbs of an all-female batch.
Under the expert care of a seasoned grower, Honey Bananas yields at least 12 ounces of buds per square meter after a flowering period of 8 to 9 weeks.
Honey Bananas usually blossoms around the second or third week of October. Once ready for harvest, it produces more than 14 ounces of buds per plant.
