Big, Green, Fruity and Feminine
This hulking great specimen of a strain has been doing her thing for some time now, yet continues to top the table as one of the most monstrous hybrids ever concocted.
Like Marvel’s Incredible Hulk, the Bruce Banner Feminized strain is green, grows to a towering height and has enough strength to blast you into the middle of next week. However seasoned you consider yourself to be, 27% THC is more than most can handle.
What’s interesting is how this cannabis combines frankly terrifying potency with a delicate, aromatic and downright delicious flavor profile.
You’d expect these buds to reek of nothing but old-school Skunk and head-spinning dankness, but it’s actually more of a floral and fruity affair. One that belies the potency and intensity of the high to follow, which never fails to catch novice smokers off guard.
The genetic composition of Bruce Banner Feminized is relatively well balanced, coming in at around 60% Sativa and 40% Indica genetics. This is pretty much right on the money as far as the high goes, which propels you into a world of pure fantasy before delivering one hell of a body blow. All of which adds up to a hugely enjoyable and versatile strain, with a long list of potential therapeutic applications.
If all that wasn’t enough, this herb has the potential to be as generous in terms of yields as she is in potency. This being the feminized version, problematic male plants are eliminated from the equation.
Bruce Banner Fem needs some serious headspace to reach her full potential, but is nonetheless capable of producing more than 30oz of weed for every square meter of grow space. Which is (for most people at least) way more than you’ll be needing for quite some time to come.
Flavor and Fragrance of Bruce Banner Feminized
The most prominent terpenes in Bruce Banner are myrcene, caryophyllene and limonene respectively. Produced by combining the genetics of OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, this hybrid delivers more or less exactly what you would expect on the nose. Plenty of fresh fruits and sweet berry fragrances, with a heavy undertone of diesel and a classic Skunk punch.
Break the buds open and the heavy diesel fragrance becomes all the more pronounced, though now with an unmistakable hint of fresh strawberries in the background.
Whether combusted or vaporized, Bruce Banner Feminized delights with her sweet, fresh and predominantly fruity flavors. The aftertaste combines juicy berries with peppery spice, lingering on the palate for hours.
The smoke itself is surprisingly smooth and palatable, giving no indication of just how potent this pot tends to be. Hence, taking things slowly with those first few hits is essential.
Bruce Banner isn’t the kind of strain you reach for when looking for a gentle, relaxing and short-lived high. If anything, this is the kind of strain you reach for when you want to test your tolerance.
Peaking at 27% THC or more, just two or three heavy hits of this pot and you’re guaranteed an unforgettable ride.
She’s a slightly Sativa-leaning hybrid, which (true to her genetic composition) delivers a primarily cerebral high. The immediate sensation is one of overwhelming optimism and energy - often to such an extent as you won’t know what to do with it.
Bruce Banner Feminized takes creativity and inspiration to highs you’ve never known, though again can be so punchy you’re not quite sure what to do with yourself. Frantic conversation and uncontrollable giggles are to be expected, meaning this marijuana isn’t what you’d call a productivity strain for formal settings.
Still, invite a few friends over to indulge and this stuff can be a simply spectacular social strain.
In any case, you’ll need to plan ahead for the heavy and borderline incapacitating body stone that follows. Bruce Banner Feminized has a tendency to numb the body in its entirety, leading to an extensive bout of enjoyable couch-lock. The high has a tendency to last for as long as 3 to 5 hours, making this one to save for afternoons and evenings when your calendar is clear.
As for the munchies, consider the calorie intake of the real Incredible Hulk in the average day and that’s probably what you’ll have consumed by the time you come back down.
Medical Uses of Bruce Banner Feminized
Bruce Banner Fem may be ridiculously powerful, but the beautifully balanced genetic composition makes her a surprisingly versatile strain. Medical cannabis patients looking to treat relatively severe physical and psychological conditions have reported welcome and long-lasting relief from carefully measured consumption.
The Sativa side of the high is great for getting to work on depression, anxiety, stress and mood disorders, replacing every trace of negativity with a feeling of total optimism and self-confidence.
Bruce Banner’s associations with relentless episodes of the munchies can also make this stuff great for dealing with bouts of poor appetite.
As the high progresses, the Indica genetics take over. The feeling of pure blissful contentment continues throughout, though is coupled with a deeply relaxing and enjoyably heavy body stone that makes its way through the extremities. Couch-lock isn’t necessarily guaranteed, but you’ll have little drive or energy to do anything physical.
The physically relaxing properties of Bruce Banner are great for getting to grips with all types of aches and pains, along with muscle spasms, headaches and migraines.
Anyone with a low THC tolerance or a history of panic attacks should approach this cannabis with extreme caution, as this is one of the hardest-hitting hybrids money can buy.
Growing Bruce Banner Feminized Seeds
Opt for the feminized version of Bruce Banner and you’re looking at a guaranteed bumper haul of exceptionally strong cannabis. With no problematic male plants in the mix, you’ll be set for an all-female grow and the best possible harvest.
Getting to grips with this hybrid means first ensuring you’ve got the vertical space needed to cope with pretty towering plants. A crop of these beauties is therefore best kept outdoors where possible, allowing them to do their thing under the watch of Mother Nature.
Bruce Banner Feminized is a relatively robust and resilient specimen, though performs best when treated to consistently warm Mediterranean-like weather conditions.
It’s not like you need much of the stuff to have the desired effect, but this stuff nonetheless yields like it’s a competition. Even with moderately decent cultivation conditions, yields often top 25oz of weed for every square meter of grow space. If you manage to hit that magical 27% THC mark, you’ll be sitting on a pretty spectacular stockpile for some time to come.
Bruce Banner is definitely a strain that rewards knowledge, experience and effort, but is also forgiving enough for amateurs to get to grips with. That is, just as long as you’re fortunate enough to live somewhere with decent and relatively predictable weather conditions outdoors.
Irrespective of what kind of weed you’re into and why you use it, it’s impossible not to be impressed by Bruce Banner Feminized. If you’re all about the cerebral side of getting high, this stuff is just about as powerful and enjoyable as it gets. If you’re more about the physical side of things, these buds relax and incapacitate to just the right extent.
Despite having been produced primarily with potency in mind, Bruce Banner also turned out to be one of the most fantastically fragrant and decadently delicious strains of recent years.
Gorgeous to look at, relatively easy to grow and capable of delivering a serious punch, seriously… what more could you realistically ask for?
