The high is quick to arrive and slow to leave. It begins with a cerebral euphoria followed by an intense physical tingling throughout the body.

You’ll feel lighter, and in some cases, filled with giggles. It will also get your creative juices flowing (of every type), but don’t expect to get much done – you’ll be too lazy, sleepy, and zoned out.

Banana Hammock terpenes

The most notable terpenes of this weed strain include myrcene, caryophyllene, humulene, terpinolene and D-Limonene.

Aroma & Flavor

As the name and effects suggest, Banana Hammock brings you a little piece of paradise. From the very first whiff, you transport before the high has even set in.

The culmination of exotic fruit, rich honey, and fresh earth engulfs you in a cloud of pure tranquility.

You’re awakened to the ever-optimistic dreamer in you. Hints of diesel come through in a subtle but noticeable way, counteracting the sweetness just enough to elevate the flavors.

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that Banana Hammock tastes fruity. What may surprise you is that the fruit taste is not banana.

With notes of grape, berries, and citrus, it offers a luxurious sweetness that is sublimely fitting for a strain with the word hammock in its name. It’s deliciously smooth.

Like a tropical fruit cake drizzled with honey, sprinkled with crushed vanilla, and garnished with flower petals.

Banana Hammock Adverse Reactions

The evolution of the Banana Hammock marijuana strain means it is almost impossible to guarantee you will get the same level of THC every time.

While this is a luck-of-the-draw an experienced toker will revel in, it can be a little too much if you are new on the scene. 

The myrcene terpene is a powerful muscle relaxant and, when coupled with high levels of THC, can leave you couch-locked. Some users have also reported feeling levels of drowsiness, and even anxiety, especially when consuming the more potent strains.

This one is best taken at night, or on days when you haven’t got much else to do. 

Other adverse reactions you can expect are dry eyes, cottonmouth, and hunger.

While there is no way to alleviate these symptoms completely, there are ways to make yourself more comfortable as you ride it out. A good bottle of eye drops, a jug of refreshing water, and a cupboard stocked with snacks will go a long way.

Growing Banana Hammock strain
Growing Banana Hammock

Your garden will be easy to manage as long as your environment is consistent and spacious, although Banana Hammock won’t flourish under extreme conditions.

Banana Hammock is indica-dominant, her leaves are tall and long, and she requires plenty of height to reach her full potential. 

The less space available for the plant to grow, the smaller the yields will be. Under ideal conditions, yields are better than most.

A support pole/mesh can help the plants grow upright, utilizing the space more efficiently and increasing bud production.

Growers agree this is one easy plant to harvest, even for beginners. Yields are impressive when conditions are right. Banana Hammock responds well to SOG, topping (recommended around week 5), and defoliation techniques.

Use nutrients only as needed. Ensure the area does not get too humid, as the plant is susceptible to fungus.
