Bruce Banner takes it’s namesake from the alter-ego of comic book superhero the Hulk and it receives this name with good reason as it is quite a powerful strain. Bruce Banner actually comes in three specific variants, with Bruce Banner #3 being the most coveted of the three. Initially, 5 Bruce Banner strains existed, Bruce Banner #1, #2, #3, #4, and #5. Bruce Banner #2 and #4 were both quickly drop, with #1, #3, and #5 taking precedence. Bruce Banner #3 ranked first place in the Denver US Cannabis Cup, and is the most potent strain ever tested in the history of the High Times Cannabis Cups. Bruce Banner received a great amount of hype in 2009, right as medical cannabis started receiving a better reception in the mainstream.
Bruce Banner Appearance & Taste
The taste of the strain is a pungent citrus, and compared to the strain’s smell, it’s taste is considerably earthier and less sweet. Jason Holck of Dark Horse Genetics (aka OG Ironlung) bred Bruce Banner by cross breeding Strawberry Diesel and OG Kush, which is made evident with it’s pleasant, slightly sweet diesel scent.
The bud has a heavily frosted appearance due to a thick layer of resinous glands. It’s most popular in Colorado, Arizona, and Oregon, though it can be found elsewhere. Expect this strain to increase in popularity thanks to its high THC concentrations.
Bruce Banner Effects
The effects emerge swiftly and in strength, but the stone mellows into a creative euphoria, balancing out the punch of the initial stone. Bruce Banner will provide a relaxing body high accompanied with useful pain killing effects for users. This is a strain that many use to treat anxiety and stress levels, as well as alleviating the symptoms associated with ADD / ADHD and Bipolar disorders. Bruce Banner is also used to remedy migraines and alleviate pain associated with arthritis.
That makes this a holy grail of sorts for patients seeking the strongest high. CBD contents, however, are low, so this is not an ideal choice for conditions that respond to that chemical. The head high is intensely euphoric, combined with strong creativity and a whole-body mood boost. Energy levels are high, making this a good daytime strain. Bruce Banner is a highly effective painkiller, but it’s also good for anxiety, depression, nausea, and sleeplessness. Dry mouth and bloodshot eyes are both common side effects, along with occasional paranoia and dizziness. The dominant flavor is sweet, with notes of citrus and a strong, pungent smell.
Final Thoughts on Bruce Banner
Bruce Banner has more going for it than a clever name and high THC content, however. This Sativa dominant hybrid strain packs quite a punch with a great balance between the Sativa and Indica effects.
