Chiquita Banana Strain
Chiquita Banana, also referred to as C. Banana, bred by Utopia Farms in Santa Cruz, California, is a reported cross of OG Kush and Utopia’s own Banana strain. Utopia Farms originally called the strain Banana OG, but after poor sales, renamed it Chiquita Banana and soon after established itself as one of the most potent strains in California.
This hybrid strain is reported to grow tall and produce large, moderately dense, golden trichome-frosted buds with red stigma hairs in a 63-day flowering period. It’s responsive to both indoor and outdoor grows, as well as a hot, humid climate. C. Banana is a highly potent strain that has tested as high as 35% THC, according to Utopia Farms.
Test results from SC Labs have shown that C. Banana contains a terpene profile that includes, myrcene, and caryophyllene, giving off a peppery and tropical aroma. The strain won third place in the Hybrid category at the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup.
Chiquita Banana by Utopias Farms takes the Banana OG cut to the next level. A cross between parent strains OG Kush and Banana, Chiquita Banana leads with a potent heady sizzle (likely brought on by the enormous quantity of THC) which then melds into a Kush-esque body buzz that is relaxing but not sedative. These Kush effects continue to gain potency over time, “creeping” over the body. This powerful hybrid is an outstanding option for patients struggling to hurdle their tolerance barrier, and its effects are also well-suited for those suffering from chronic pain or nausea
