Strawberry Banana, or “Strawnana” for short, is an indica-leaning hybrid made from a cross of Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum. Known for its high THC content and its happy, relaxing effects, the strain is sweeter than strawberries and cooler than a banana split!
Strawnana Strain Effects
A 70% indica and 30% sativa strain, Strawnana is best used in the late afternoon or early evening. Using Strawnana will take users through an array of stages. First, the high will start slowly and melt into a calm state of relaxation. Then, the focus hits; environments are enhanced, and users can avoid distractions from small tasks. Later, associative thinking comes into play, which then becomes a full body buzz. The final stage of the Strawnana high ends in couch lock. Talk about a wild ride!
Users of the strain often report feeling:
Although Strawnana is a dominantly indica strain, meaning it derives many of its relaxing properties from that family of strains, it also contains noticeable effects commonly associated with sativa, making it the perfect hybrid to get the best of both worlds.
While everything may seem like fun and games when it comes to the sweet Strawnana strain, it does have some unwanted effects, especially when consumed in doses that are too high. Like many other strains, Strawnana causes dry mouth and red eyes in users, but these effects can be relieved almost immediately with some eye drops and a glass of cold water. The real effect to look out to is the psychedelic trance it may leave users in if consumed in large quantities.
We know it’s too good to put down, but exercise some caution when using Strawnana!
Strawnana Strain Benefits
While Strawnana is popular among recreational stoners, the strain also holds its weight in the medical cannabis area. The medicinal uses for this strain are typical of most indicas; it mostly benefits those seeking relief and relaxation.
Strawnana is recommended in medical treatments for users who suffer from:
The strain has relieving, energizing, and motivating effects, meaning it proves beneficial in treating depression, stress, and headaches. Because it’s also focusing and motivating, it may be a good way to temporarily ward off some symptoms of attention deficit disorders.
Strawnana Strain Flavor – The Genetics & Terpenes
Strawnana’s plants grow in large, flat buds shaped almost like hearts. They grow dark green with big red pistils and thick trichomes.
When sparked, Strawnana’s initial aroma is reminiscent of fruits and cream. If you smell closely, you’ll be able to take in the spicy undertone of herbs and berries. Of course, it wouldn’t be Strawnana without hints of strawberry and banana—and you can bet there’s some of both sprinkled in, but the scent of strawberry is much more prominent than that of banana.
The aromas and flavors of the strain are largely attributed to Strawnana’s terpene profile. Terpenes are present in all plants, and they give them many of the properties associated with them. In cannabis, terpenes are responsible for the smells, tastes, and many of the effects of each strain, making them an important aspect of the bigger picture.
The main terpenes present in Strawnana are:
Although Strawnana can certainly hold its own, the strain’s true claim to fame is a THC reading of over 32% THC in 2018. This makes the strain one of the strongest and most potent on the market, but the general variety sits closer to 22-25%. Its CBD content ranges from 0.32% to a whopping 4.74%, while its CBG contents are around 0.47-1%. The strain also contains a higher-than-usual level of THCV, reaching levels between 0.36-1.16%.

Information Regarding Growing Strawnana
Strawnana is low maintenance strain, making it a moderately easy to grow even by novices. The strain can be grown indoors and outdoors, but the real key to a big yield is protecting the plants from weather changes. During the day, humidity should remain high, and the temperature should stay at around 70-degrees Fahrenheit. Experienced growers, however, may try to grow purple spots in the buds by exposing them to colder temperatures during the growing period.
After harvesting, it is recommended to cure the yields upside down and letting them dry under in an environment of under 50% humidity for about a week. Indoors, the strain may take up to 70 days for harvesting and produce an abundant yield of 15-19 ounces per square meter. Outdoors, Strawnana plants will be ready in mid-October with total yields of 23 ounces or more!
Strawnana is a fun, easygoing strain perfect for anyone looking for some relief and relaxation. Whether you need a little focus or to mellow out after a long day, Strawnana will be there with sweet, open arms to soothe what ails you and improve your day.
A potent mix of Banana Kush and “Strawberry” Bubble Gum, Strawnana can sweeten up your life as soon as you let it.
