Bruce Banner #3 is the most potent overall of the three most popular Bruce Banner phenotypes. A strong OG Kush influence but some added raciness and fruitiness from the Strawberry Diesel; and #5 is Strawberry Diesel-dominant, taking strongly after that strain in structure and flavor.
OG Kush x Reservoir Strawberry Diesel (Strawberry Cough x Sour Diesel)
Originally bred by "OG Ironlung," the mystery OG Kush (now thought by those involved in its creation to be Ghost's OG Kush) was pollinated by a Reservoir Seeds Strawberry Diesel, and there were three main phenotypes that stuck around. #3 was thought to be the pick of the litter.
Banner #3 has a deeply spicy lemon-lime OG Kush aroma with a slight hint of sweetness that sneaks in at times.
The flavor is much the same as the aroma, but adds a strong element of earthiness (like actual soil) and the sweetness takes a backseat. The flavor is much the same, but adds a strong element of earthiness (like actual soil) and the sweetness takes a backseat.
Banner's effect seems to depend largely upon harvest time, with an early harvest making for a very cerebral and borderline rushy experience, and a later harvest giving a more relaxing effect. Generally it starts strongly sativa, with lots of eye and face pressure, a floaty, buzzing body, and an increase in heart rate.
The energy it gives is easily channeled into productivity, making the Banner a suitable daytime strain, though its potency is often too much for professional situations, especially for those who suffer from anxiety. The second half takes on a more relaxed feel, with more of the clear-headed relaxation that OG Kush is known for.
