Banana Milk strain genetics

Since forming in 2014, Californian-based Alien Labs has blessed the cannabis community with dozens of high-quality strains, edibles, vapes, and cannabis-inspired merch. Among its impressive repertoire is the tantalizing Banana Milk weed strain, a deliciously potent blend of Banana OG and Purple Punch F2.

Banana OG is a US original with multiple breeders and versions to its name. The most popular variation is a Banana Kush / OG Kush blend. Banana OG is a creeping monster with up to 27% THC and a reputation for putting stoners out for the count. It has a sweet, tropical flavor with bold woody notes. Purple Punch displays much of the same characteristics, with a strong indica dominance and a high THC. Purple Punch is a blend of Granddaddy Purple and Larry OG with a relaxing high and sweet berry flavor.

Like its parents, the Banana Milk cannabis strain’s fast-growing popularity extends from consumers to cultivators, with the likes of Backpack Boyz jumping aboard the bandwagon to develop this fruity hybrid. It’s a tempting treat you can’t resist – not that you’ll want to.

Is Banana Milk strain indica or sativa?

The Banana Milk strain sativa vs. indica balance is indicative of its heritage. Both its parent strains are firmly indica dominant, and the Banana Milk strain genetics display the same with a 75:25 indica to sativa ratio. 

Growing Banana Milk strain

According to the Banana Milk strain info, it grows like a typical indica, presenting short, stocky bushes. Its fat, pepper-shaped nuggets are a deep forest green with a generous smothering of milky trichomes. 

In colder climates, the Purple Punch lineage shows through in the form of rich purple hues from the leaves to the nuggets. And although it’s relatively easy to grow, Banana Milk strain seeds aren’t widely available. 

Banana Milk strain flowering time

The Banana Milk strain has a slightly longer than average flowering time than many other strains. But it’s worth the wait. Indoors, you can expect a flowering time of around 75-83 days. 

Banana Milk strain autoflowering

The autoflowering version of Banana Milk, like most autoflowers, starts blooming very early. Because it doesn’t require light deprivation to start flowering, expect the first buds to appear after four to six weeks. Banana Milk autoflowers can be harvested after ten to fourteen weeks. That makes its (auto)flowering time between four and ten weeks long.

Banana Milk strain yield

The average yield of any cannabis plant depends on several factors, including the skill of the cultivator, growing conditions, strain genetics, and size and health of the plant. It also differs between photoperiod and autoflower plants. However, you can use general estimates as a potential yield per plant guideline. 

For photoperiod plants, this is 16-64 ounces (450-1814 grams) outdoors and 8-24 ounces (227-680 grams) indoors.

The Banana Milk weed strain can be grown indoors and outdoors, although many growers report getting larger yields outdoors.

Banana Milk strain autoflower yield

The potential yield per plant for autoflowering plants is approximately 1.7-7 ounces (50-200g) outdoors and 1.7-4.2 ounces (50-120 grams) indoors.

Banana Milk strain effects

The Banana Milk strain effects are much of what you’d expect from an indica-dominant hybrid. Consumers say its high THC (18-22%) and mid-range CBG (up to 1.83%) deliver a fast-acting, euphoric high you’ll feel almost immediately after exhaling. It starts with an uplifting mental boost, with waves of relaxation and comfort throughout your body soon after. You may experience couchlock, but this may depend on your dose. Beginners, you have been warned.

You can expect side effects like dry eyes and thirst. You could also feel increased hunger, mild tingling, and dizziness. In larger doses, paranoia, and headaches may occur. On the upside, many consumers say the strain helped with sleep issues, lack of appetite, and even pain management.

If colorful, flavorful hybrids are your cup of tea, give Blueberry a shot. This fruity-flavored hybrid by DJ Short is the offspring of an Afghan indica and a Thai sativa. With its relaxing high and therapeutic punch, this potent indica-dominant cultivar is just what Dr. GreenThumb ordered. Alternatively, maybe Wedding Cake is more your flavor. This Cherry Pie and GSC cross has become a fan favorite worldwide and for a good reason.
