What Is the Banana Split Strain?
Banana Split was created by Skord Marijuana and Crockett Family Genetics. It is believed to be a cross of Tangie and Banana Sherbet, and the result is a type of weed that almost feels like a ‘cheat meal.’ It is a sativa-dominant hybrid and thanks to its Tangie genetics; Banana Split weed is ideal for use during the day.

The high from Banana Split comes on quickly, but instead of providing you with a burst of energy, it causes your mind to race while your body stays where it is. Users report feeling the first semblance of a ‘high’ in the back of their neck and head before it quickly spreads through the rest of their body.
Soon enough, the effects become sedative, and you are likely to remain where you are for quite some time. This is unfortunate because the munchies come not long after. The best way to use Banana Split is to prepare everything in advance. Have your pizza, beverages, and other snacks within reach before the high takes full hold.
Banana Split will make you just as happy as the dessert did as a kid. Almost as soon as you toke, you’ll notice the buzzy euphoria begins to build. Most people say it’s a relaxed, full-body sensation that leaves you tingling to your toes. The mental clarity of the high allows you to focus for hours, as long as you don’t need to leave your couch.
The munchies will hit hard just after the couchlock kicks in, so be prepared! It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, until the hours-long high starts to fade. Then you’ll be ready for a long sleep, and some sweet dreams as the sedative effect finally kick in.
Surprisingly, the scent profile isn’t banana-heavy. There are certainly hints of banana, but other sundae ingredients take center stage. The primary scents are tropical and cherry, with cream and undertones of citrus. The Tangie genes are clearly noticeable.
Like the scent profile, look for sweet, creamy flavors and hints of banana. There are stronger citrus and fruity flavors, along with a hint of nutty, earthy undertones on the exhale.

Outside of those, the biggest trick to the Banana Split is not overindulging. This strain of weed does not mess around. Start slow, and the Banana Split will treat you kindly.

Banana Split is popular in the medicinal marijuana community for treating conditions including loss of appetite, insomnia, chronic pain, and depression. It also has an interesting terpene profile. Here are a few of the most abundant:
Beta-Pinene: You will find this terpene in pine trees around the world. It is less dense than water, and you get a distinct piney scent from it. There is a suggestion that pinene could make antibiotics even more effective, which means we would need to use fewer pharmaceutical drugs.
Terpinolene: You also get a wood and pine smell from weed due to this terpene. Terpinolene is found in apple, sage, cumin, rosemary, and lots of other herbs. It is potentially an antioxidant and may also have antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
Linalool: Pick up a beauty or bathroom product, and chances are it has linalool in it. The potential therapeutic effects of this terpene include strengthening the immune system against stress, reducing anxiety and depression, and relieving pain.
Limonene: The citrus scent in Banana Split is mainly down to this terpene. Limonene has been linked with positive effects including stress relief, elevated mood, and relief from heartburn. Limonene may also have antibacterial and antimicrobial effects.
Possible Side Effects of Banana Split Marijuana

Banana Split is a cross between Tangie and Banana Sherbet. There are two phenotypes of Banana Split: a 60/40 sativa/indica hybrid, and a 40/60 sativa/indica hybrid. Because the ratios are so close, the effects remain very similar. The most significant difference is that the sativa strain takes slightly longer to flower.
This strain is a beauty to grow. It isn’t prone to any major diseases, and it’s easy to keep to a reasonable size. Without training, plants will grow about six feet tall, but super cropping, ScrOG growing, or low-stress training will all keep plants shorter. Expect a moderate amount of stretch once you do hit flowering.
Light is critical for growing weed, regardless of strain. Making sure your Banana Split plants receive enough light will ensure you get the huge harvests the strain is known for. That’s why training your plants into wide, even canopies is such a successful strategy. You get more light to more bud sites – leading to more weed per plant.
The best way to get the most flavor out of your Banana Split weed is by flushing their growth medium starting a few weeks before harvest. Because the buds are so big, they tend to harbor unnecessary nutrients. That leads to unpleasant, chemical tastes and a harsher smoke. Stop using nutrients and start flushing the soil two weeks before your intended harvest date, and your plants will use those stored nutrients. In the end, you’ll get a smooth smoke without anything extra to harsh your vibes.
Inside, your plants will flower in about nine weeks. Of the two phenotypes, the sativa strain will take slightly longer to get to flower. Indoors you can yield up to 1.5oz per square foot.
Outside, northern hemisphere growers can expect to harvest at the beginning of October. Banana Split has average yields. Under suitable conditions, it can produce up to 16 ounces per plant.
Banana Split marijuana is a supersweet strain that grabs hold of you and refuses to let go until you are relaxed and content.
This strain is absolutely incredible. The taste alone is insanely delicious, it is a very mellow productive high. After a couple hundred strains I’ve tried I think this is my new favorite. This medicine right here makes me happy to own a medical card. Very recommended!
I’ve had two different experiences purchasing this strain. Both times in Toronto. The first time I bought it at 14.7% THC and the nuggets fresh and remained on the stems. I very much enjoyed the uplifting nature of this flower and resolved to buy it again. Most recently I bought another 3.5 grams. I realized after I had got it home it was 10.3% THC, a third less potent. The flower was dry and had all fallen off of the stems. It did not taste well. It was very disappointing. It would appear it’s hit and miss. But anyway it’s a still great strain.
